How To Recuperate After Storm Damage To Your Bellevue Home

1/12/2022 (Permalink)

Winter storms are neither kind nor do they come announced. It can be tough to recuperate and know where to begin with the restoration and insurance claims process. Below, we have listed our carpet cleaning and odor removal services, as well as knowing the three types of contaminated water to look out for during the recovery process. 

What Are Our Carpet Cleaning And Odor Removal Services Post-Storm Damage? 

  • No matter how high-quality your carpets may be, even the best quality carpets can show signs of wear and tear after a certain point, and especially after storm damage!
  • Some carpet cleaning services we offer are Bonnet Cleaning, Hot Water Extraction, Dry Cleaning, Showcase Premier Cleaning, and Deluxe Precondition and Rinse. 
  • We have the training and equipment required to identify and eliminate offensive odors post-storm damage. Our technicians have access to several odor removal products capable of going below the surface to neutralize an unpleasant odor. 

There Are THREE Types Of Contaminated Water After Storm Damage? What Are They And How Can I Classify Them? 

  • Category 1: “Clean Water.” As you can tell from the name, this type of water is from a clean source, such as a faucet or a broken clean water supply line. While this water is “safer” than Category 2 or 3, it can quickly become hazardous if left untreated. 
  • Category 2: “Gray Water.” This type of water may contain bacteria and viruses that can cause illness if ingested. This type of water can come from dishwashing overflow, washing machine overflow, or toilet overflow with some urine. (but no feces)
  • Category 3: “Black Water.” This type of water is highly unsanitary- any contact with it should be avoided! These kinds of water can germinate from standing water supporting microbial growth, flooding from rivers or streams, or water from the toilet trap. 

It’s difficult to pinpoint precisely when storm season is, especially since it’s common knowledge that tornado season in Middle Tennessee is usually in March. But don’t underestimate the strength of a winter storm! Because immediate action is critical to your Bellevue home’s longevity, reaching out to us should be your first point of contact to get the restoration process started. Call us at (615) 242-9391 and let us help you jumpstart your quest for restoration in Bellevue! This franchise is independently owned and operated. 

Experiencing A Leak In Your Pipes? Here's What To Expect

1/5/2022 (Permalink)

Happy New Year from your friends here at SERVPRO of Belle Meade and West Nashville! While disaster is never a good way to start the New Year, we take pride in being there for our Nashville neighbors 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and have prompt response times. With that being said, pipe leaks can happen, especially during winter. If your pipes are clogged or have a leaky faucet, putting off this problem will only lead to further damage. 

What To Do Immediately After A Leaky Pipe Situation While Waiting For The Professionals? 

  • Turn off your water and drain the faucets! The sooner you do this, the better chance you can minimize damage. Once your water has been shut off, you should empty your taps of any remaining cold water in your systems. This will help relieve pressure and prevent other areas in your pipe systems from freezing. 
  • Investigate where the pipes burst! This is critical because if your pipes appear to have been leaking for a while, you want to be careful entering rooms. Look for bulging ceilings and other warning signs of water damage. 
  • If you catch water damage soon enough, place buckets underneath the leakage areas. 

What Does The Water Damage Restoration Process Look Like In Green Hills? 

  • Once you've called us, the restoration process begins. While every water damage scenario is different, the general process stays the same. 
  • At this point, we will inspect your Green Hills property to determine the scope of water damage. We will also test how far the moisture has traveled to guarantee proper and complete restoration. 
  • Almost immediately after the inspection, the water removal and extraction process begins. This includes using powerful pumps and vacuum units to remove hundreds of gallons of water promptly and efficiently, which helps prevent mold growth and further damage. 
  • Drying and dehumidification are vital to removing water that is harder to access. Our professionals use room measurements, relative humidity, and temperature to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed for successful cleaning and restoration. 
  • Step 5 of this process consists of cleaning and sanitation! With the damp odors that are a noticeable side effect of water damage, our professionals provide sanitation treatments and use a number of cleaning techniques for content restoration
  • After this, we take on the task of restoring your Green Hills home or business to its preloss condition. Restoration can include minor repairs like installing new carpet and replacing drywall or major repairs like full-scale room reconstruction. 

Leaking pipes can not only lead to water damage and flooding, but odors and mold issues if not taken care of as soon as possible. Luckily for you, SERVPRO of Belle Meade and West Nashville specializes in water damage restoration- you could say it's the cornerstone of our business! Contact us at (615) 242-9391, and let us make this process as stress-free as possible. This franchise is independently owned and operated. 

These Are The Top 10 Ways To Resolve Fire Damage To Your Nashville Property

1/5/2022 (Permalink)

Starting the new year right is challenging when a fire throws its weight around your Nashville property. It conjures up numerous painful memories that you want to dispel as soon as it appears.

Below, we have listed the top 5 things you should do immediately after fire damage while waiting for the professionals and the top 5 do-not-dos, so you have a good idea of what to keep an eye out for and what to avoid



What To Do After A Fire To Your Nashville Property? 

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets. 
  • Change the HVAC filter. 
  • Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers. 
  • Prop doors open and empty freezers if electricity is off. 
  • To reduce further soiling walls, woodwork, and upholstery, keep hands clean and place clean towels or old linens in major traffic areas in your Nashville home or business. 

What NOT To Do After A Fire To Your Nashville Property? 

  • The wiring may be damaged post-fire damage, so it’s imperative that you DO NOT turn on any ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet. 
  • DO NOT attempt to wash painted walls and surfaces or shampoo carpets and upholstery- leave the heavy-duty cleaning to the professionals!
  • DO NOT use any food or beverages that have been near fire, heat, or water without reaching out to a certified repair service. 
  • DO NOT send garments to an ordinary dry cleaner because smoke odor may result from improper cleaning. 
  • DO NOT clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire, water or heat without contacting the right people. 

After any fire damage scenario, your primary concern should be safety first! You also have to remember not to carry wet materials as they can be heavier than they look.

Below, we will list those steps and explain how the content restoration process works in Belle Meade.

What Are The Differences Between Mold "Removal" And Mold Remediation In Your Nashville Home?

12/22/2021 (Permalink)

Mold growth in your Nashville home is not only unsightly, but it can also lead to health effects. All it takes is a small water leak or excess humidity to spiral out of control, and within 48 hours, you could have a case of mold damage on your hands. Fortunately for you, our highly trained mold specialists at SERVPRO of Belle Meade and West Nashville have the industry knowledge, training, and expertise to manage your mold situation.  

How Does Mold “Removal” Differ From Mold Remediation?

  • Microscopic mold spores exist indoors and outdoors, so it’s impossible to remove ALL mold from your Nashville home. While it’s often advertised that mold can be totally “removed,” this is simply untrue. 
  • Mold can be remediated, however, and when exposed to water, it can quickly grow into colonies. This is why it is imperative to address any sources of water or moisture before mold remediation can begin. 
  • You can detect possible mold problem areas through their smell. Mold produces a strong, musty odor, and aside from mold remediation, our team is also trained in removing odors caused by mold damage and water damage. 

What Does The Mold Remediation Process Look Like In Nashville? 

  • While every mold remediation process is different, there are a few key steps that remain the same. The first step is to contact us! We are the mold damage experts, and our representative will ask a series of questions to make sure we have a complete understanding of your situation, so the mold mitigation process is as seamless as possible. 
  • Next, we will conduct an inspection and mold damage assessment to thoroughly inspect your property for obvious signs of mold. Although local and state laws may have a specific documentation process based on the size of the affected area, the general protocol here requires that we provide guidance on your unique mold damage situation. 
  • Once we find visible signs of mold, we use several forms of containment to trap the mold and prevent it from spreading further. We may use advanced containment procedures such as negative air chambers and negative air pressure during the cleanup process. All fans and HVAC systems will be turned off during this process to reduce the spread of mold. 
  • We use powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to regulate air filtration, which prevents the spread of mold while the mold remediation is in progress. 
  • Afterward, we remove all mold-infested materials and begin content cleaning and belongings. We use fogging equipment to remove putrid odors caused by mold and disinfect your items. 
  • Once we complete all these steps, the restoration process can begin. This can include minor reparations such as replacing the drywall, painting and installing new carpeting, or major reparations such as a full-scale reconstruction of various areas of your Nashville home. 

Here at SERVPRO of Belle Meade and West Nashville, we care about helping out our local community as best as we can. Disasters can happen when you least expect them. Still, because we are a locally-owned and operated business, we make it a point to respond immediately when handling a crisis. Contact us at (615) 242-9391 and let us help you get through your mold calamities stress-free.
