Many Contents with Fire Damage Are Restorable. Call SERVPRO For Fire Restoration Assistance.

Do I need to replace home appliances after a fire?

Your Fairfield Glade home is likely full of appliances that could sustain smoke or soot stains in a fire. Refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, and dishwashers are just a few items that are expensive to replace after a home fire. Equally, they are impossible to keep with odor-causing soot or soiling. Finishes on appliances can melt or bubble, which may cause synthetic odors like the smell of burning plastic to pervade your home. We operate with a restore over replace mentality. Our technicians can remove appliances, inspect their connections to your plumbing or electrics as well as surface soiling on the appliance itself. Hard surfaces, like those on appliances, are usually resistant to temperature and soot, which gives them a strong chance of successful restoration.

How do I remove soots from appliances?

The approach for removing fire damage from appliances in your Fairfield home is similar to our approach for hard surfaces. The material construction of these contents is usually nonabsorbent, like metals, plastics, glass, and Formica. Non-porous materials are easy to clean because soot do not penetrate the material itself but can, in some cases, bond with the surface. Our technicians rely on wet-cleaning methods which involve water-based cleaning solutions. Introducing water to a hard surface is safe because there is little chance of pushing soot further into the surface. The advantage of avoiding solvents it is not chemically dangerous and requires less application time when removing soot.

What are the top tips for cleaning appliances?

  • Use a dry sponge, cloth or feather duster to remove excess soiling from the surface of the appliance
  • Apply a surface cleaner directly onto the surface then apply a rinsing agent to remove any streaks
  • Finish cleaning the surface using a polish to return the appliance to its preloss condition

Why do some soot residues remain on appliances after cleaning?

The composition of this un-combusted soiling is influential in the effectiveness of the cleaning method. Some house fires burn synthetic materials or protein and grease like kitchen fires. These deposits are classifiable as wet smoke and may require further attention because they repel water. Wet smokes are easy to spread around without the correct cleaning method. It is often necessary to apply a strong alkaline, oil-based solvent that can bond with the grease-based soiling. Once the soiling bonds with the solvent, it becomes suspended and can be washed away using an alkaline rinsing agent. Measuring the type of soot you are dealing with is essential if you want to avoid causing further damage to your home. SERVPRO pre-test materials for the type of smoke can help us decide the most effective restoration method.

What can I do to remove stubborn burned spills in ovens and stoves?

  • Apply a full-strength industrial cleaner onto the surface and allow it to soak
  • Pull out removable fittings to get greater access to the surface
  • Once deposits are dissolved in the industrial cleaning liquid, scrub the surface using steel wool or stiff brush
  • Scrub greasy residues and check ventilation hoods, ducts along with both interior and exterior of the stove

How can I remove yellowing from wooden surfaces?

At high temperatures, some types of wood surface finish can discolor. Usually, this discoloration manifests as yellowing on parts of the surface. SERVPRO technicians can restore light wood damage by applying wood creme to the affected surface. Using light steel-wool we can gently clean the surface to restore it to its original condition. If woods have direct exposure, there is a chance that the finish burns away entirely and can char parts of the naked surface on the wood. When there are visible signs of wood damage, technicians can use soda blasting to abraid surface levels of the wood gently before refinishing it to a good condition.

Do I need a specialist for electrical repair after a fire?

Items in the home that have complex construction or electricity running through them need assessment and repair from a qualified electrician. Restorers can perform initial cleaning of the electronic device without causing damage before bringing in a specialist for service and repair. As part of our stress-free claim, SERVPRO can enlist trusted third-parties on your behalf so that you only have to deal with one point of contact from start to finish. At the end of service, we can pass on paperwork to an insurance adjuster.

If your appliances become coated in, soot or smoke residues use a professional restoration service to return it to its preloss condition. Contact SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties at (931) 250-5333.

Disaster Mitigation Technicians Can Remove Commercial Water Damage from Your Crossville Business

With summer on the horizon in Crossville, many business owners are likely not considering inspecting their indoor sprinkler systems. However, all it takes is a mechanical failure, overheated system, or corroded pipe to saturate structures and inventory.

When business owners need commercial water damage cleanup for Crossville establishments, SERVPRO technicians provide emergency-response mitigation that minimizes losses. These techs carefully monitor moisture levels throughout the cleanup process to ensure that surfaces return to a clean, dry condition.

How Corrosion Impacts Fire Sprinklers

Three simple ingredients are needed to allow for corrosion in a sprinkler system:

  • Iron
  • Water
  • Oxygen

These components create electrochemical corrosion, which can eat through the pipes that feed your fire sprinklers. These holes can be as small as a pinhole and as large as a penny. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)-prompted reports suggest that a whopping 73% of dry sprinkler systems experience significant amounts of corrosion after the 12.5-year mark.

One way businesses are extending the lifespan of their dry pipes is by replacing the pressurized air in their systems with nitrogen. This alternative works because nitrogen is an inert gas that does not trigger electrochemical corrosion due to the lack of oxygen.

How SERVPRO Dries Your Facilities

SERVPRO dries facilities with centrifugal air movers working in tandem with dehumidifiers. Here is how it works:

  • Air movers pull moisture off of surfaces and into the air.
  • This moisture is then taken in by the dehumidifier and passed over refrigerant coils, silica gel, and similar systems to separate the water from the air.
  • The dehumidifier collects water for disposal while expelling warm, dry air.

How Do I Make Sure My HVAC System Did Not Get Contaminated during a Flood in Crossville?

5/17/2020 (Permalink)

Our Crossville SERVPRO Flood Specialists Use Specialized Cleaning and Drying Techniques

Experiencing a flood in Crossville can happen very quickly. After the floodwaters recede, there is a feeling of shock and the knowledge that the flood can affect your entire home. It can be challenging to know where to even begin. Since floodwater is contaminated, our technicians inspect your whole house to ensure it is properly cleaned and dried, including commonly unseen areas like your HVAC system. Left unchecked dangerous mold spores can turn into colonies causing significant damage.

What if My HVAC System Retained Moisture After the Flood?

SERVPRO Technicians A Course of Action to Ensure Your HVAC System is Clean and Functional
Flood damage impacts each Crossville home differently. Sometimes there may be no visible lingering damage, but because the water potentially contained contaminants, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) identifies it as gray (category 2) or black (category 3) water.

How Do I Know if I Need to Replace the Ductwork?

    •    If the ducts are sheet metal, they can generally be cleaned and dried without needing to replace them.
    •    If filled with fiberglass, the insulation needs to be replaced because when exposed to potentially contaminated moisture, it is no longer salvageable.

How Do SERVPRO Technicians Dry and Clean the HVAC System?

    •    They remove any unsalvageable materials.
    •    Technicians use industrial-grade disinfectants on sheet metal.
    •    Specialists use tubing in conjunction with air movers to direct and circulate air to dry the ducting.

Our IICRC (Institution of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) specialists venture into crawl spaces and attics to make sure that they address every impacted area in your home. Hidden damage in places such as your HVAC system and behind kitchen cabinets can cause structural damage and allow mold growth.

What Is the Best Choice for Extraction and Drying of My Crossville Home?

5/7/2020 (Permalink)

pooling water on living room floor Water damage happens and when it does, SERVPRO is available and ready to restore your home.

Our SERVPRO Team Has Hundreds of Drying and Recovery Tools to Restore Your Crossville Home After a Water Loss Efficiently 

Removing any standing water from your home after a loss incident can be insurmountable without a variety of tools and machines designed for efficient extraction. Many property owners in Crossville have come to rely on the fast and confident response of our SERVPRO team to help with the extraction and drying that their homes need after a loss incident. 

With water removal for Crossville homes, especially, the right decision about extraction can be the difference in loftier costs and the irreparable damage that can occur in your home and to your belongings. Extraction and drying rely on the skills of our technicians, as well. Each of our responding technicians has accreditations through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in Water Restoration (WRT), and many have additional training in Applied Structural Drying (ASD) as well. 

Can I Extract Water from My Crossville Home on My Own? 

In a short and direct answer for DIY extraction, there are times that you can do. The trouble with picking and choosing when it is appropriate leaves much of this work up to interpretation. Choosing to address standing water on your own can allow for several potential concerns in your house, including: 

  • Unseen Water 

One of the biggest concerns with DIY extraction is not knowing where all of the water is. Many materials are highly absorbent, which means that even a seemingly localized incident can have spread through porous materials to new areas of the property. 

  • Missing Equipment 

Another concern that homeowners should have when addressing water losses in their house is their lack of cutting-edge equipment. In extraction alone, our SERVPRO professionals can choose between submersible pumps, vacuums, truck-mount extractors, and several specialty wands to remove both surface and trapped water.

  • Unskilled Approaches 

Consistent threats develop like lingering moisture without a full working knowledge of how to restore a damaged residence after water damage. Unchecked and undried, damp pockets that could not get reached with conventional drying can facilitate the growth of mold. 

What Tools Should Get Used for Removing Water in Crossville? 

Our restoration professionals have many tools at their disposal for handling surface and trapped water throughout your house. Depending on the situation and severity, our team can choose among: 

  • Wet Vacuums 

Wet vacuums can handle pooling water within a few inches in-depth, and can also be the foundational machine for many of the attachments like carpet wands. 

  • Submersible Pumps

Submersible pumps are a versatile tool that is ideal for standing clean water in your home like a broken plumbing pipe or malfunctioning appliances. 

  • Trash Pumps

Gas-powered trash pumps are an excellent choice for any standing water that might include debris, or when a more powerful tool might be necessary. Gas-powered pumps can outperform electric submersibles in many situations. 

Are There Special Tools for Removing Water from Materials in Crossville?  

Addressing surface water is one concern, but taking water trapped inside of materials is another entirely. Our professionals can use many specialized tools to remove and evaporate this water before it binds to the molecular composition of materials like flooring and drywall to cause irreparable water damage. Some of these specialty tools include: 

  • Positive Pressure System

By drilling small holes behind a removed baseboard, we can have a minimalistic approach to evaporating moisture and dampness in wall cavities. This plan is only useful when structural damage has not occurred. 

  • Carpet Wands 

Carpeted floors can quickly become compromised by standing water, but carpet wands pull moisture trapped in the fibers and padding beneath it. These attachments can get attached to truck-mount pumps or other extraction devices. 

  • Insulation Vacuum 

When portions of drywall get removed due to exposure, it is a likelihood that the insulation behind it has become compromised as well. We have an insulation vacuum to quickly and thoroughly remove wet and damaged material to improve the efficiency of drying. 

When Has Crossville Water Damage Become Too Much to Restore?  

Before the water damage mitigation in Crossville work has started, our project manager and crew chief walk through the residence with a customer to determine the extent of the damage and the ideal approach to restore it. One of the advantages of choosing SERVPRO is our in-house residential contractors who can help with controlled demolition and full-scale build back. 

You need fast and reliable assistance for extraction and drying after substantial losses that can leave standing water in your home. Our SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties team can help 24/7 by calling (931) 250-5333.

Can I Continue to Run My Crossville Business After A Water Leak?

outside view of strip mall Did your retail establishment experience water damage? Call SERVPRO! We have the equipment and experience to quickly restore your business.

Yes, the Professionals at SERVPRO Use Low-Profile Equipment to Get You Back on Track 

As any small business owner understands, it is critical to keep your Crossville business running, especially when a relatively minor water leak disrupts the usual routine. If your office shares walls with a neighboring business, you may need to mitigate damages in your storefront and your own. 

What if Some of the Water Leaked Through to the Neighboring Business? 

SERVPRO Technicians Work to Come Up with A Restoration Plan to Suit Both Businesses 

You are sharing walls and pipes with your neighbors if you are dealing with commercial water damage in your Crossville strip-mall office. If the building sustains damage on both sides of a shared wall, SERVPRO can restore the damage of the impacted areas for both businesses. 

After Technicians Dry the Excess Water, what are the Next Steps? 

  • Restoration Specialists Extract water with portable extraction equipment to ensure they remove as much moisture as possible. 
  • We dry the room by using dehumidifiers to pull moisture out of the air, filter the air, and then exhaust the air back out, so it is warm and dry.
  • Technicians enhance drying by placing air movers throughout both businesses facing the walls at floor level to keep the warm, dry air from the dehumidifier moving. 

What Damage Could Occur to the Building if I Do Not Tend to the water Quickly? 

  • Secondary water damage occurs to walls and flooring; if moisture sits on them for too long, they can become warped.
  • Dangerous mold infestations may grow as they thrive on moisture and humidity and only need an organic source of food such as wood or drywall.  

What About My Inventory and Stock? 

Your investment in your inventory, stock, and fixtures certainly varies depending upon the type of small business you are running. Our crew makes every effort to protect these crucial aspects of your business. We can relocate to safe areas within the building or pack-out items, which can simplify the water extraction and drying processes and preserve your investments.

The Real Truth Behind Basement Fire Damage Remediation Struggles in Sparta

4/19/2020 (Permalink)

fire damaged basement in a home Take precautions to make sure that your basement can withstand a fire. After a fire, contact Team SERVPRO to help with remediation services.

Remediating Fire Damage in a Sparta Home's Basement

Basement fires might not seem like the most common occurrence, but 6,500 of these residential fires occur each year and cause an average of almost $300 million in damages to structures and belongings. The most common heat source in these types of fires comes from electrical arcing. Whether the cause is a damaged light fixture, extension cable, or power strip, it is crucial to get professional mitigation to protect your home from corrosion due to soot damage. 

If your Sparta home's basement needs fire damage cleanup after an electrical failure, you can count on SERVPRO to clean up the damage and restore your home 24/7, even during weekends and holidays. SERVPRO franchises are staffed with local residents who are in touch with the needs of the community. No matter what size disaster occurs on your property, technicians have the right tools for the job. 

Fireproofing Your Basement

  • Add blocks. Cut planks of wood to size based on the distance between your wall studs. Also, inspect your basement for signs of fire-resistant insulation or other fire protection measures. Put fireproof coating on the blocks after nailing them in locations where wall studs and floor or frame joists intersect. 
  • Close the gaps in your walls or flooring. This is especially important when you install your flame-resistant blocks. Any opportunity for fumes or flames to escape puts your home at risk. You can quickly seal gaps with a foaming caulk, which is also safe to apply near sensors and wiring.
  • Install a sprinkler system. Residential sprinklers can buy you much-needed time and can douse the fire before it spreads. 

SERVPRO Removes Residues and Odors

Whether extinguishers or sprinklers take out the fire, soot residues and odors are not easily remedied with consumer-grade cleaners. SERVPRO techs use several different methods, including HEPA-filter vacuums, for cleaning dry soot deposits, wet cleaners, and specialized creme paste solutions for wet solutions. SERVPRO even has oil-based cleaners to address melted rubbers, plastics, and other petroleum and oil-based products that have been set aflame. 

SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan, & White Counties serves the community with cleanup that makes your home look, "Like it never even happened." Call (931) 250-5333 for mitigation services you can count on to restore your property.

Why Did My House Flood When I Live Far from Waterways?

4/10/2020 (Permalink)

Thunderstorm warning sign Tennessee gets its share of flooding from storms. SERVPRO is ready to assist. Call us today!

No Matter What Caused Flooding in Your Crossville Home SERVPRO is Ready to Help 

When you were house hunting, you discarded the temptation of living riverside, perhaps because of a fear of seasonal flooding. Even with this pre-planning, you now find yourself with a Crossville basement full of water and an urgent need for assistance to get it out. How did you arrive at this crisis? And what can you do now to get your home and possessions cleaned, disinfected, dried, and odor-free? 

What Is Flash Flooding? 

Crossville homes suffer flood damage for many reasons, and location near a lake, stream, or other waterway is far from the only cause. Our region of the country experiences heavy precipitation many seasons of the year. Sometimes the amount of rain, sleet, or even snow that falls in a short period can expose homes anywhere in our community to the risk of significant water flow or seeping into lower levels. Flash floods occur when excessive amounts of water collect in dry waterways or flow down other stream-like features like sidewalks, driveways, streets, and parking lots.  

Can My Home Fill with Water Without Obvious Flash Flooding? 

When storms "train" over a region, one shower follows another over a truncated time. The ground around your house can become saturated without realizing it. Eventually, the water has nowhere to go but through your foundation and into your home. This phenomenon becomes even more likely when the following elements are present: 

  • The ground immediately adjacent to your foundation does not slope away from the perimeter of your house
  • The materials comprising your foundation have cracks or washed-out mortar joints
  • Windows in the foundation are ill-fitting, broken, open, or poorly sealed
  • Gutters and downspouts at roof level have clogs or need repair 

Why Does My Roof and Gutter System Impact Flooding in My Basement? 

A properly functioning gutter and downspout system does little for your roof in the warmer months, but it protects the foundation of your property. Water sheets off the shingles, staying out of the attic and above-ground levels of your house. When it deposits into the gutters, it should move quickly to a series of downspouts that direct the water to flow out at least ten feet away from your foundation. Clogs preventing the free flow create conditions for lower-level flooding as follows: 

  • Water spills over the edges of the gutters, pounding down on the ground directly next to the foundation
  • The gutter spillage erodes the ground, creating depressions that drain into your house, not your yard
  • Plugged downspouts force water to flow down exterior walls, following that surface into the foundation  

How Can Professionals Get the Water Out of My House? 

No matter how the flooding occurred, you have an overwhelming mess on your hands. SERVPRO stands ready to help extract the water. This task is squarely one of the primary services offered for the communities we support. Our crew arrives with the training and experience to begin pumping water in Crossville immediately after a safety assessment. We stock our service vehicles with high-efficiency extraction equipment for every eventuality. Pumps manage water deeper than two inches, and truck-mounted extractors pull substantial quantities of fluid out without the need for electricity if storm damage cuts power.

It's Just Rainwater--Why Not Let It Drain and Dry on Its Own? 

Water damage happens fast, within minutes to hours. Flooding also brings dissolved contaminants and silt. Overland flooding flows through industrial sites, picks up water and pathogens from taxed sanitary sewers, and can drag dead animals, insects, and organic debris into your house. Between the deterioration happening within building materials because of the corrosive nature of water and the potential biohazards, floodwaters must be removed fast and by trained professionals. 

How Long Do We Have to Dry Out My Basement? 

Floodwaters are rich with organic debris that accelerate microbial growth, including molds, mildews, and pathogens potentially detrimental to your family's health and welfare. When the standing water recedes through extraction, our technicians continue to seek out trapped water and measure the levels of absorbed moisture. Molds can explode into walls full of colonies within 24 to 48 hours, needing only water and an organic surface upon which to grow. Structural drying must occur, and our crews establish drying goals and position equipment based on their training in psychrometry, the science of drying. We balance air movement, temperature, and humidity levels to facilitate the evaporation of the excess moisture. Air movers, heaters, and a range of different types of dehumidifiers help us reduce moisture to preloss levels. EPA-registered disinfectants inhibit further microbial growth and associated odors. 

SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties is well-prepared to provide all services needed to remediate your home after seasonal flash flooding. Contact us round the clock at (931) 250-5333 to make it "Like it never even happened."
