Fire Damage Cleanup in Downtown Knoxville Homes 

Cleaning up after fire loss events can often involve multiple stages and actions taken by our technicians. Returning your home to preloss condition means much more than overcoming heaps of debris and ash on the floors of the property. Soot and smoke residues settle on surfaces and contents and require removal to protect these underlying materials. There are multiple strategies for eliminating soot, some of which include: 

  • Abrasive cleaning
  • Emulsification with solvents 
  • Dissolving with detergents
  • Controlled demolition 

Fire and Smoke Odor Removal for Downtown Knoxville 

One of the universal needs for homes and businesses after fire losses is odor removal. As widespread as these threats can become, we have multiple deodorization tactics and counteractant products to lessen the severity of noxious smells. When manageable and accessible, we can utilize various odor removing devices such as foggers, hydroxyl generators, and ozone machines.
