SERVPRO Technicians Have the Training, Tools, and Experience to Restore and Refresh Your Loudon Home after Damage from Fire

Attic fires are one of the worst types of fires as they can rain down debris, smoke damage, and soot all over the lower levels of your Loudon property. This home disaster often creates huge odor issues throughout the home. It can bring cross-contamination issues if soot begins circulating through the residence's ductwork, spreading the smoke's scent throughout the property. Odor control measures need to be taken before any repairs or rebuilding occur, or you will be stuck with the smell of the fire as long as you remain in the home.

Can Fire Damage on Walls and Ceilings Get Cleaned?

There is never an absolute answer for the restoration of a Loudon home with fire damage. Many factors contribute to the outcome of every job SERVPRO technicians work on, such as:

  • If there is water damage wicked into the sheetrock of walls and ceilings
  • The amount of charring on building materials
  • The type of smoke residues left on the structure

The technicians test the residues to determine the best cleaning methods to use. In some cases, when the building materials have no evidence of charring, heat damage, or deterioration due to water, the techs may opt to use a sealant when the maximum amount of residues have gotten removed, and residual fire odors remain. Along with air quality improvement measures such as negative air chambers to port in the fresh air and air scrubbers to capture airborne particulates, the techs successfully remove all traces of smoke odors.
