In the event of a house fire, you need to have a comprehensive understanding of the damage that has been done. Smoke from a fire can be one of the most damaging parts because it can cause serious respiratory problems not just for those in the immediate vicinity but also for people who live nearby or go into your home after the smoke has dissipated.

The first thing that you should do is call SERVPRO South Nashville (615) 331-0200 and they will come out and assess what needs to be done and how much it will cost. Once we know more about what caused your house to burn, we'll let you know if there are any additional precautions that need to be taken before cleaning up smoke damage.

You should turn off all of your filters and fans to minimize the amount of dust in the air.

You should also use a damp cloth or wet vacuum cleaner to clean up as much as you can.

Do NOT use a dry vacuum cleaner - it will create a lot of dust and you'll have to clean it up with a damp cloth anyway.

One of the best ways to combat smoke smell after a fire occurs is to open windows and turn on exhaust fans. If possible, unplug all of your air conditioning units for at least 24 hours so they can cool down without bringing in more hot air.

Once SERVPRO of South Nashville arrives we will begin remediation of your home to ensure that your home is back to its original state.
