SERVPRO Techs Have the Professional Equipment and Training to Remove Signs of a House Fire from Lenoir City Properties

House fires caused by electrical malfunctions in Lenoir City attics are common reasons for needing mitigation. These areas are a hub of electrical wiring, plumbing, and often mechanicals for the home. When one of these systems sparks or fails, the result can be a fire. 

SERVPRO handles cleanup of fire damage in Lenoir City attic spaces and all the nuances this type of restoration service entails, such as:

  • Removing corrosive soot from surfaces
  • Removal of building materials and insulation as needed
  • Checking HVAC and ductwork for smoke damage

A fire in an attic can also affect the roof and floors below. Water damage from extinguishing the fire can seep through ceilings below the attic and cause a need for drying and possibly removing a sagging ceiling depending on the amount of water wicked into the building materials. Flames in an attic can easily damage a roof. If necessary, SERVPRO technicians can set up temporary repairs to inhibit water entry into the home through a damaged roof. 

Many residents use their attics for additional storage space. Soot generated during a fire can become airborne and travel inside boxes covering the contents inside with smelly smoke damage. SERVPRO technicians can inspect items and determine the best way to clean them for reuse by the residents. The goal is to curtail the number of things that require replacement and save homeowners money whenever possible. 

To limit the potential for the spread of soot outside the attic, containment over entrances and measures such as negative air chambers assist with keeping soot particles from winding up in other areas of the home. 

SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties at (865) 986-3015 brings professional fire damage restoration services to Lenoir City properties and can handle house fire cleanup in an attic or any area of the home.
