Gatlinburg, TN Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Many current residents remember the hazardous effects of a fire that claimed a city block in 1992 and a more recent encounter with a wildfire from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park that would destroy more than 2400 structures throughout Sevier County. Our fire restoration team can help when you need it.

Soot Removal Options for Gatlinburg Homes

Soot is a common fire loss effect, but one that has many different compositions. Dry soot and smoke damage can often be easier to remove with chem sponges and vacuums. Wet smoke damage creates thicker residues that stay adhered to surfaces and contents and require solvents and wet cleaning approaches to remove if it is possible.

Removing Malodors from Gatlinburg Properties After a Fire 

Smoke odors are a challenge for remediators and restoration professionals because of how quickly they can spread in a damaged area. Partial combustion does more than creating soot damage but also leaves noxious malodors that require our inventory of industry-leading deodorization equipment to resolve and neutralize.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
