7/28/2021 (Permalink)

When not properly addressed and taken care of, fire damage in West End, or any other place in Nashville, can spell disaster for a building’s structural integrity as well as the general health and well-being of the building’s occupants.

  • Fire damage can leave your building full of soot, which when inhaled, can cause or exacerbate serious conditions like lung cancer, asthma, and more.

How To Prepare For Summer Storms In Bellevue

7/19/2021 (Permalink)

Bellevue, like the rest of Middle Tennesee, sees lots of summer storms rolling through it during June, July, August, and beyond. Storms in Nashville often bring buckets of water from the sky as well as flash floods, lightning, thunder, and sometimes fires. So, how can you stay prepared for summer storms to minimize the possibility of storm damage affecting your residential or commercial properties? We've rounded up a few action items for you to take to prepare your home or business for Bellevue summer storms. 

What Should I Do to Prepare for Bellevue Summer Storms?

  1. Make sure that any low-hanging limbs are cut down and disposed of and that anything that could fly into the air with gusty wind is anchored to the ground. Storms too often end with objects flying into buildings that weren’t properly placed or taken care of before a storm suddenly occurred.
  2. Clean your gutters. Make sure that your gutters are free from debris so that they can do their job and funnel water away from your home or business. 
  3. Create an emergency plan. Make sure that everyone in your household knows what to do if a tornado or severe storm watch occurs and they’re at home or away from home. 

How Can I Stay Safe During Bellevue Storms?

  1. Get inside. Staying away from tall structures like telephone poles and trees when a storm rolls in is important because these may fall with the gusts of wind that often accompany summer storms. 
  2. Don’t use electrical devices or appliances. In case lightning strikes your home, you should avoid using any electrical devices or appliances that have cords and are connected to your home’s electricity. These will experience an electrical surge if your electricity gets affected by the storm. 
  3. Have candles and flashlights on hand. Sometimes the power goes out during summer storms, so you should make sure that you have candles and flashlights to illuminate your home if the power goes out. You should also have an emergency kit with first aid nearby.
  4. Don’t take baths or showers. Water can carry an electrical current if it is hit by lightning, so stay out of the shower when a storm occurs in Nashville.

While preparation measures are important to minimize the chances that storms will damage your Bellevue home or business, storm damage is never completely preventable. When you experience storm damage, fire damage, water damage, or other disasters in Bellevue, contact SERVPRO of Belle Meade/West Nashville at (615) 242-9391. We are trained in responding to emergency situations, and we’re ready to help. This franchise is independently owned and operated.

Preventing Fire Damage To Your Green Hills Home This Summer

7/14/2021 (Permalink)

Hot, humid Nashville weather is here to stay for the summer season, and all the static electricity in the air paired with the high temperatures are a recipe for fires everywhere, including Green Hills. House fires can be sparked by a wide variety of incidents--from leaving your stove on to a spark catching flame in your dryer. Nevertheless, you can take action to minimize the chances that your home will not experience fire damage.

How Do You Prevent Fire Damage to Your Green Hills Home?

There are a few steps that you can take to prevent fire damage to your Green Hills home this summer. 

  1. Test your fire/smoke alarms every month. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and you never know when the batteries in your smoke detectors decide it’s time to quit on you. Make it a routine habit to check your fire/smoke alarms every month, replacing any batteries as necessary.
  2. Clean your dryer’s lint trap and external vent. After continuously drying loads of laundry for days and weeks on end, your dryer’s external vent can experience lots of buildup from the lint that doesn’t get caught in its lint trap. Especially during the summer months, you should make sure that your home’s external vent is cleaned and replaced if necessary. Always removing the lint from your dryer’s lint trap after every use is also a good practice to adopt.
  3. Regularly wipe down your kitchen. Any grease lingering on your stove or oven is a recipe for disaster waiting to happen. Fire damage can often easily be traced back to grease in your kitchen, so making it a habit to clean your stove, oven, and all your other kitchen appliances will ensure that you minimize the chances of a grease fire occurring.

How Else Can You Lower the Chances of Fire Damage in Your Green Hills Home?

In addition to the preventative measures listed above, you can also proactively protect yourself and your home from fire damage by doing the following.

1. Invest in homeowners’ or renters’ insurance.

Make sure that your homeowners’ insurance policy includes house fires. In the unfortunate event that fire damage does occur, you want to have peace of mind that your insurance will cover any damages that are beyond repair. This will prevent you from losing everything even if an emergency hits.

2. Store flammable lawn clippings and other outdoor materials in safe places.

Don’t just leave dry leaves and lawn clippings in piles in your yard. This puts your home in a prime position to act as kindling for any fire that occurs within these flammable materials close by. Dispose of flammable outdoor materials as soon as you can, and while you’re waiting to get rid of them, keep them far away from your house to minimize the chances that your house catches fire if they somehow do.

3. Make sure your family knows your emergency fire escape plan.

Every homeowner should have an emergency fire escape plan in case of fire in your Nashville home. Write the plan down and go over it with your roommates, family members, or tenants so that they are prepared if the worst comes to pass.

If you ever find yourself in need of fire damage restoration specialists, SERVPRO of Belle Meade/West Nashville has a team of fire restoration specialists who can restore your home or business to preloss condition.
