Fast Fire Damage Recovery Helps Honor Reservations at Your Hotel

The hospitality industry in Loudon faces significant challenges when a fire threatens to interfere with your guests’ travel plans. Visitors look forward to a comfortable room and inviting common spaces when staying with you. If our professional fire recovery team is on the job, we have proven strategies that allow you to welcome your guests while we mitigate and remediate the damage.

Poorly Maintained Lint Traps Are a Common Firestarter

Fire damage in your Loudon hotel can flare if cleaning of the lint filters and ductwork in your commercial laundry is delayed. The fibers caught in each dyer’s lint traps or a buildup in the venting ignite easily and can smolder as your housekeeping staff continues their other duties. Sprinkler systems swiftly quell the flames, saving your building but contributing to a substantial mess that needs immediate attention.

Rapid Response and Full-Spectrum Disaster Services

We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and SERVPRO crews hold multiple certifications from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Our broad range of applied specialties means we arrive prepared to implement the plan our project managers devise after a professional assessment of your fire scenario. Our service vehicles stock the equipment and products necessary to start ticking items off the work schedule without delay.

Water Removal Precedes Fire Residue Cleanup

Firefighters augment the sprinkler system activated by the heat and smoke with additional quantities of water. Water incursion is a safety hazard and a destructive force, even though it is essential to knock down the flames. SERVPRO crews count water removal as one of our core services, positioning pumps and operating extractors to evacuate the area of moisture to eliminate the slip and fall and electric shock potential water presents.

Containment of Fire Remediation Area

SERVPRO contains the fire damage work area for multiple reasons:

  • Limiting the space permits us to use advanced air scrubbing technology to filter the smoky atmosphere, trapping contaminants in HEPA filters, and venting to the outdoors.
  • Containment allows you to maintain normal business operations in other areas of the hotel, greeting your guests and providing them the rooms and meeting areas they reserved.
  • Partitioning off the affected space with heavy plastic sheeting and sealing the perimeter using the negative air pressure created by the air scrubbers limits the spread of odors, debris, residues from the laundry room to guest rooms and the other amenities of your hotel. 

Call on SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties when a hotel fire threatens to force your failure to honor commitments to customers. Contact us at (865) 986-3015 for a rapid response and practical plan, including cleaning out the clogged traps and ducts that caused the fire to start.
