The Ultimate Guide to Fire Damage Remediation in Knoxville
My Knoxville Kitchen is on Fire!
As a homeowner, you make sure to protect your family by having a suitable insurance policy, keeping your home in good repair and avoiding dangerous situations. What you may not realize is that not cleaning your stove could lead to a fire and threaten the very existence of your property. Grease on the burners can quickly catch on fire and escalate, causing fire damage and disrupting daily life.
When a small kitchen fire roars out of control and leaves your Knoxville home with fire damage, SERVPRO is at your service. Our crew of technicians is available 24/7 to respond to your emergency call and put your mind at ease. A professional should always ensure that your structure and belongings are safe, even when the damage seems small. Thankfully, our SERVPRO team is trained to identify and remediate your problems in the most efficient way.
As much as you would like to start wiping down the soot and smoke remains, it is best to wait until SERVPRO technicians arrive. Depending on the chemical composition of each burnt item, its residue can be either sticky or more like fine dust. Our team can determine the best cleaning solution for each remain to prevent damage from abrasive cleaners typically found at the store. However, you can start moving any objects unaffected by the fire so our staff can get to work as soon as we arrive at your home.
Airing out your space is also essential when recovering from a fire. If you can open windows and doors, as well as bring in any fans you have into the room, you improve air circulation and encourage the smell to move away from your house. When our SERVPRO crew arrives we get to work by applying deodorizing agents such as pellets and foggers so there is no lingering smell in your home. We also use industry-grade dehumidifiers and air circulators to speed up the drying process when water and extinguishing agents are left behind.
Protect your home by reducing the risk of kitchen fires and keeping a fire extinguisher handy in case of emergency.
