The Professional Team at SERVPRO Helps Remove Water from Crossville Commercial Establishments

Water removal from a Crossville shop or office is essential to mitigating your loss from a water incident. Whenever a ceiling leak or a broken pipe causes damage to your business, your bottom line is in jeopardy. The quickest and most effective solution to water damage is calling a team of experts trained to extract water and dry the environment with minimal disruption to your day-to-day operations.

In Crossville, the water damage repair team ready to help upon receiving your call is SERVPRO. Water removal involves much more than drying the space.

Following water removal, we dry the space and finish the process by applying anti-microbial solutions to deter mold growth.

Aside from being certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), our staff is trained to handle your job with safety and efficiency in mind. 

Some of the steps we take to protect your business include the following:

  • Move-out services and off-site staging areas where we can store and clean items while preventing them from further damage. In this process, we inventory and document every item removed from your space to return them to their rightful place when the process is done.
  • Specialized drying solutions for electronics and documents to preserve priceless records.  
  • Dry-wall and minor repairs and coordination with other subcontractors when needed. With our help, we work in tandem, so the interruption to your business is as minimal as possible.
  • Documentation of the water damage restoration process can be useful for insurance claims.

How Can Crossville Commercial Flood Damage Be Removed Rapidly?

SERVPRO has Professional-Grade Extraction Equipment to leave Crossville Properties Water-Free

When heavy rains cause water to enter a Crossville property, the water damage needs to get removed as quickly as possible to end the spread. How the water entered, and its surfaces have a lot to do with whether it will be standing water or recede. 

SERVPRO technicians are ready to handle Crossville commercial flood damage cleanup 24/7 because property owners should not and often cannot wait until the following business day to start the restoration process. When storms bring water in through a leaking roof or broken window, this type of water is clean as long as it has not aged beyond 24 hours; after that, the potential for harmful bacteria to build up has begun, and it needs careful handling. 

Hazards of Groundwater 

Groundwater is a whole other problem in a commercial property. This type of water can bring in multiple hazards. It can contain anything it has contacts including chemicals, raw sewage, and debris such as nails and glass. SERVPRO techs routinely treat this water with a professional biocide before extraction to make it safer to handle. 

Benefits of Using an Outside Restoration Company

Commercial flood damage should always get professionally mitigated. Encountering floodwater can be hazardous, and that is why SERVPRO technicians wear protective clothing, including respirators. The reason is that the airborne water vapor can contain dangerous elements that could be aspirated, and that fact is impossible to know through a visual inspection. The techs typically test the water upon arrival to determine anything potentially harmful in the water and treat it with professional biocides or antifungals accordingly. Using SERVPRO allows business owners to have the peace of mind knowing:

  • Knowledgeable techs will contain and remove equipment and contents as needed for the best outcome
  • The extraction and drying gets performed using professional equipment
  • Disinfection and proactive treatments for mold leave a work environment that is sanitized and safe

SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties at (931) 250-5333 brings professional flood damage restoration services to Crossville commercial properties to make it "Like it never even happened."

Cleaning Water Damage in Your Crossville Diner After a Sink Leak

8/11/2021 (Permalink)

Commercial kitchen ready for use Commercial kitchen sinks are common places for water leaks. SERVPRO is always on call to quickly mitigate the damage.

SERVPRO Can Help Keep Your Business Open During Water Removal Service

Plumbing leaks in your commercial kitchen can be very frustrating, and leaks under your sink in your Crossville diner can be even more perplexing. Kitchen leaks can occur from various sources and can sometimes be mistaken for a leaking drain pipe. Pinpointing the source of the leak helps to expedite getting it fixed, but either way, it needs to be repaired right away.

The sink in your luncheonette in Crossville gets used every day, pretty much non-stop while you are open for business. Dealing with commercial water damage in Crossville from such a leak is not only inconvenient for your daily operations, but can pose a danger to your employees from wet flooring around the sink area. SERVPRO staff can come quickly to help you possibly fix the source of the leak, but at least to clean up any water and mitigate damage.

Safety During Water Removal Services

Structures that are water damaged, as well as some of our cleanup procedures, can create slip, trip, and fall hazards. Wet surfaces are usually slick, and power cords and equipment hoses can be a tripping hazard. Therefore, we post warning signs and alert your staff about such dangers while we are working.

People may not recognize the potential hazard of walking from a wet carpet to a hard floor. Wet shoes might not slip much on carpeting, but when someone steps onto hard flooring, a severe slip hazard is present. We ensure that everyone understands this hazard.

Power cords and hoses can become tangled during emergency SERVPRO services. During the stage of drying, cords can be a problem. We always tape down or gather cords with a Velcro belt or zip tie to avoid this danger.

After all the water and moisture are removed, we also sanitize the affected area to prevent any microbial growth. Moisture meters are also used to find any moisture which may be hidden.

SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties understands the necessity to work quickly and thoroughly to get your business serving food. If your diner is located in Sparta, Lake Tansi, or Crossville, you can reach us at any time by dialing (931) 250-5333.

Count on SERVPRO to Minimize Your Business Downtime After Water Intrusion

Flooding can shut down a Crossville business for a day or much longer. If there is an excessive amount of water, the time needed to repair and restore can take over a week.

Water damage affects Crossville businesses differently. The type of business determines how SERVPRO performs specific tasks and if the emphasis is on removal or cleaning. For a warehouse operation, drying the floors and lowering the interior humidity are the essential points. For a child care center, we place more initial emphasis on the cleanliness and safety of the facility. 

Water Removal for Flooring

Carpets and the floor pads used to protect from falls trap a significant amount of water within and underneath them. Once we remove any standing water, our next step is to dry out the carpets and pads and the floor underneath. This service does depend on the amount of water, its cleanliness, and the cost-effectiveness of restoring rather than replacing.

To reduce the disruption to the business, we prefer lifting an entry and exit point for both and then using a series of air movers to force warm, dry air under the floor covering and across the concrete surface underneath. 

Water Damage Repairs

Those are not the only items we check for water and rot. Drywall is very vulnerable when it becomes wet. If too water-logged, a panel can crumble at a touch or fall apart in the hands of someone trying to remove it. If the drywall is not too wet, technicians can dry it using air movers and box fans. We place the first devices to blow warm, dry air over the damp surface, adjusting the temperature and airflow speed against the amount of moisture trapped inside. The airflow forces moisture out of the affected panel and carries it in the direction of the box fan to blow it outside of the structure. Small holes can be drilled to inject circulating air to enhance the drying time.

Mold Inspection

For both drywall and floors, water damage also brings the potential threat of mold. In a childcare business, we recommend spraying every surface with an antifungal cleaner. In the case of carpets, allow SERVPRO technicians to use an anti-bacterial shampoo to ensure their cleanliness. 

For some businesses, merely reopening the doors is not enough. SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties understands that customer service sometimes means customer protection as well. We have decades of experience to help take care of every business, no matter how small their customers may be. Call us today at (931) 250-5333.

They Can Call a Certified Restorer Like SERVPRO to Perform Commercial Water Mitigation in their Crossville Business

Discovering a water leak in your business is not a pleasant situation. Sprinkler system malfunctions and roof fails can paralyze your business operations, forcing you to close your doors. Your next decision determines how extensive the damage spreads.

Hiring SERVPRO restorers to perform commercial water mitigation in your Crossville business is the best decision. We respond within the shortest time possible since we understand how fast water damage can spread. We act fast during our water mitigation process to ensure your business returns to its normal operations within a short period.

How do you dry a water-damaged business?

For an effective and fast mitigation process, we use advanced equipment and tools and unique but approved products. If the water has already saturated building materials, we remove it through evaporation and dehumidification.

We can use desiccant dehumidifiers with two 20-inch reinforced duct lines. The equipment uses chemicals called desiccants to absorb moisture. It produces heat that passes through the desiccant material to the affected area via one of the duct lines. After heating the affected area, the other duct line extracts moisture from the building. We prefer desiccant dehumidifiers since:

  • The equipment acts effectively in drier and cooler conditions.
  • It produces the driest air with the lowest vapor.
  • The machine works effectively when the intake air is cooler and drier.

Do not allow water damage to be the reason for closing your business doors for days. Contact SERVPRO of Cumberland Morgan & White Counties for fast water mitigation services. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster. Our emergency helpline is (931) 250-5333.

Hiring SERVPRO for Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration Ensures Quality Results and That Your Crossville Business Does Not Miss a Beat

Not only is Crossville a lovely city located in Cumberland County, Tennessee, but it is also the county seat. Crossville is part of the greater Metropolitan Statistical area, and it had a population of 10,795 as of the time that the 2010 United States Census was taken. Often referred to as Middle Tennessee or the Golf Capital of the state, this is an excellent region to lay down roots or spend some time relaxing on your next vacation.

Learning About Crossville, Tennessee History Throughout the Years

Crossville began development at the location of a branch at the intersection of Great Stage Road. This is where Knoxville, TN, connected with the Nashville region, along with Kentucky Stock Road, which was a path for cattle drivers that joined both Middle Tennessee and Kentucky. This later extended further south into Chattanooga, Tennessee. This pair of roads are situated in rough parallel by today's US-70 and US-127.

Samuel Lambeth, an early American settler, opened up a storefront at this junction in approximately 1800. During this time, the small community in the region was known as Lambeth's Crossroads. The storefront got settled where the modern intersection of Stanley and Main Streets currently exists, just to the south of the local courthouse. Once a post office got established in the 1830s, this community then took on the Crossville name. During the early 1850s, a merchant named James Scott bought the Lambeth store, then renaming it Scott's Tavern.

In 1856, Cumberland County was formed, and Crossville became the county seat due to the proximity to the center of the county. Mr. Scott donated the first 40 acres so that the town square and courthouse could be developed.

Unfortunately, Cumberland County and Crossville fell victim to a lot of pillaging that took place during the Civil War. This was due in large part to how accessible the area was from the well-developed roads. This allowed both renegades and forces to come and go at will. Seeing how divided families and communities became so common, the residents suffered from a lot of battles and devastating guerilla warfare in the area. The county became separated because of the conflict, which resulted in a significant number of troops being sent from both sides.

Post World War I, US-70 assisted with the connection of the area/town and the local markets so that residents had better access to goods and products. More highways were constructed after World War II, which improved all transportation in the area by leaps and bounds.

Throughout the Great Depression, the Subsistence Homestead Division of the federal government put together a housing project located just south of the Crossville area. This was known by the name Cumberland Homesteads. The purpose of this project was to give smaller farms to hundreds of impoverished families in the region. The recreational area for this project later became the hub for the Cumberland Mountain State Park.

Crossville, Tennessee is a Wonderful Place to Visit or Put Down Roots

Perfectly situated, Crossville is just a short drive from several metropolitan cities. Not only that, but it also features an elevation of 2,000 feet, which allows for four seasons and plenty of outdoor possibilities. Whether you are someone who enjoys lakes and streams or you want to play a few rounds of golf, there is something for everyone.

Your Crossville gym can get threatened quickly by migrating water damages, but our in-house contractors can help with repairs and build back.

Not only does our team of SERVPRO professionals need to establish drying zones and utilize powerful water removal tools for unique flooring materials used in your main gym floor, but substantial water loss incidents often also come with the added threats of requiring controlled demolition and reconstruction. 

Regarding water damage repair for your Crossville gym, there are many steps and stages that this could embody. Depending on the source of the damage that your business faces, you could need plumbing repairs along with the reinstallation of removed structural elements like drywall and rubber flooring. While the aspects of mitigation do not change, they often serve as a precursor to the reconstruction needed in specific areas of your gym. You can look at these stages to track when to expect rebuilding to begin:

  • Job Scoping

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.

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.   

For 24/7 assistance, contact SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties at (931) 240-5333. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

End the Constant Battle Against Microbial Growth Using Commercial Mold Damage Remediation in Sparta

12/30/2019 (Permalink)

A SERVPRO vehicle parked in front of a business. We know what mold can do to your Sparta business, let us help you out.

Let SERVPRO be your go to for your Sparta mold damage.

A lunchtime cafe can suffer a substantial reputational hit if mold issues are present in any part of the dining area or kitchen. Not only do the odors of mold put customers off, but they can affect indoor air quality and hygiene standards. Unfortunately, mold does not just go away by itself. You may find that no matter how many times you clean mold, it keeps cropping up in the same areas every few days. If you notice recurring issues, you may want to consider contacting a professional remediation team. Microbial growth issues frequently go much deeper than surface appearance. 

Our commercial mold damage remediation team here in Sparta works with small, medium-sized, and large businesses. The trick to dealing with mold is to remove the essential element it needs to live: water. Moisture runoffs can lead to damp spots, which in turn allow spores to proliferate into unhygienic mold colonies. You usually find microbial growth issues in areas where there is water, like washrooms, kitchens, or refrigerated counters. Storerooms for food stock may have inadequate insulation, which can increase the likelihood of mold growth.

Microbial growth is easy to spread, and it can spread quickly if you are not careful. Usually, our commercial response teams set up a containment zone to guard against the spread of mold. We may augment this zone with further decontamination areas, clean rooms as well as negative air pressure. We understand that temporarily shutting down some, or all, of your eatery, can hurt monthly revenues. This is why SERVPRO works with qualified technicians to ensure any downtime is kept to a minimum. 

After the removal of mold is complete, you may notice lingering odors remain behind. Odor particles can stay in an indoor environment even after cleaning and disinfecting. This is especially true in malls where there is a lack of natural air circulation to replace odorous particles. SERVPRO can thoroughly fumigate your workspace using safe, water-based deodorants. Our powerful box fans can exchange the air quickly to ensure you get back in business as soon as possible.

Without professional remediation, mold can become a constant battle and a threat to the hygiene of your eatery. Contact SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties at (931) 250-5333.

The First Steps After Finding Mold in Your Sparta Bakery 

Owning a business in any facet of the food and beverage industry requires a constant balance of guidelines, regulations, customer safety, and quality product from your Sparta storefront. As a bakery, much of your business comes from word of mouth and repeat, loyal customers, so you seek to address concerns the moment you find them to protect this relationship with your patrons. Knowing what to do in a crisis situation can help to limit its effects and spread, and get the right qualified individuals started on fixing the problem right away.

When you discover mold damage in your Sparta bakery, you must commit to acting quickly. This organism can spread rapidly, affecting more surfaces, materials, and impeding on the creation and delivery of quality baked goods. First, call SERVPRO's team of experienced and certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT). Next, identify the source of the moisture damage and move all ingredients and susceptible contents to a safe location. 

Because of its volatility and threat of health effects to those exposed, our SERVPRO team must set up containment barriers to maximize our mold remediation efforts on-site. If this containment is the kitchen and preparation area, there is little to do but wait for remediation to complete before you can return to business as usual. 

Even more extreme cases do not have to get drawn out for extended periods. We have a division of contractors with more than 40 years of combined experience, meaning that they know what materials are too severely damaged to remain and what can get restored instead. Our professionals always carry a restore before replacing mentality, which is a commitment to saving our customers time and money with every phase of remediation. 

Because of both heat and the susceptibility of your kitchen area for moisture damage, mold can occur without much warning. Knowing whom to call and what to do in the earliest stages of this crisis can help to keep your doors open and save from escalated out-of-pocket expenses. Give our SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties team a call anytime at (931) 250-5333.

We Help You Get Back To Business In Sparta After A Water Damage Disaster

Commercial Water Damage Repair And Restoration In Sparta 

While outside flooding can cause problems around Sparta, most water intrusions come from common sources like a failed water heater, a split, overhead pipe, or some other plumbing issue. These problems may not draw as much attention as the Calfkiller River breaking its banks, but the results can be just as expensive when it comes to repairing or replacement of property. 

A leaking or broken pipe is not an uncommon problem in fitness centers and spas around Sparta. Eliminating commercial water damage in these Sparta businesses takes skill and experience in demolition, repair, and restoration of the facility. SERVPRO response teams rapidly do all this so that the owner and her customers can get back to their regular routines. 

The first action is to stop the source of water intrusion. The team leader shuts off the water as close to the leak point as possible so that other areas of the center can provide full service to customers as technicians work to resolve the issue. 

Next, SERVPRO team members pull down the section of the wall or ceiling in front of the leak to expose the problem for repair. Technicians can make most repairs, but if they find a major problem, the team leader recommends bringing in a licensed plumber. 

After completing repairs, technicians put everything back together. They replace any wall and ceiling frames too soaked by water for restoration, and then hang new wall panels and ceiling tile off them. Depending on the extent of the water damage, response teams can usually complete this in a day or two. 

As technicians complete restoration, other team members clear the fitness center of the water. They use extraction wands and other devices to remove the majority, and then switch to long-handled squeegees to push any remaining trace of moisture out the nearest door. 

SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan, & White Counties knows how important it is for customers and employees that every local business keeps its doors open. Our goal is to reopen every business here and in nearby communities like Crossville, Fairfield Glade, Lake Tansi as rapidly as possible after a plumbing or other water intrusion issue. If your business is underwater or has it running down a wall and across the floor, call us at (931) 250-5333 today.

What You Can do When Water Damage Occurs at Your Crossville Hotel

7/8/2019 (Permalink)

Don't let water damage keep guests from checking into your hotel. Call SERVPRO for fast water damage remediation.

Is Your Crossville Hotel Affected By Water Damage? Give Us A Call!

Hotels are intended to offer the most comfortable and welcoming experience possible for customers. One pipe leak in your Crossville hotel can flood several rooms within a matter of hours, forcing you to act quickly to mitigate water damage. When faced with such a problem, you should contact a company that can act rapidly to get you back on your feet.  

If a broken pipe in your Crossville hotel is causing water damage in your rooms, then you should contact professionals from SERVPRO. Our water damage restoration technicians (WRT) can arrive at your business within hours, allowing us to help you get your doors open as soon as possible.  

In the few hours before we arrive, there are several things you and your employees can do to help with water damage mitigation. To avoid permanent water lines from forming on your hotel room furniture, you should use wet rags to wipe down the wooden sections of affected beds, dressers, and chairs. Once our SERVPRO technicians arrive, we must use up precious time searching for the source of your water troubles. You can search for potential leaks in your bathrooms to help minimize our inspection period. Additionally, you can mop up some of the spillages to reduce the amount of time we spend extracting water.  

After locating and plugging the source of the flooding, we can begin removing standing waters with the use of industrial grade wet vacs. Upholstery, bedding, and cushions that came into contact with the water can be hung up to air dry or run through your cleaning room driers for a faster drying process.  

Carpeting can often be the most challenging part of a room to dry, but it is usually the most vital. Wet carpeting can facilitate mold growth in your floors or can disguise water damage below. To avoid this, we use specialized carpet removal tools to strip off wet sections of your carpet and dry them with the use of dehumidifiers and air movers.  

Hotels need to maximize the number of rooms they have open to thrive as a business. Unfortunately, an unforeseen leak or broken pipe can force you to close several rooms to customers and can incur high long-term costs if the water unless quick water restoration takes place. If your business has been the victim of commercial water damage then contact SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties at (931) 250-5333.

Cleanup After Water Damage In Your Sparta Medical Facility

Medical facilities and specialty clinics exist throughout Sparta to offer residents a focused niche of care and healing. With so many locals that depend on the availability of this business, it is not surprising to entrust your building to the care of more than just experienced custodians. When water loss incidents occur, the effects can often spread too quickly for conventional cleaning and drying approaches to be effective enough. The result is moisture ridden areas that exist out of sight and can continually provide worsening conditions for both your facility and those that use it.

Water cleanup in your Sparta medical building is one of the first steps that our professionals must take. With effective management of this situation, we can often work around the affected areas to contain the damaging symptoms and allow your business to keep its doors open while we work to restore and mitigate your loss. Our SERVPRO professionals have a fast response to these loss incidents, arriving with the full measure of our recovery and mitigation equipment.

For cleanup, we want to ensure that even worse conditions do not develop. It is important to not only address potential contamination and germs that could exist, especially in the medical facility, but there are also secondary effects like mold growth to consider as well. We have advanced SERVPRO-developed cleaning agents and antimicrobial sprays that can help to prevent mold colonization and help to disinfect and clean damaged areas of your building as quickly as possible as well.

An important aspect of preventing the situation from spreading to new areas, patient rooms, and designated areas of the hospital with expensive or advanced technology and equipment, is powerful extraction tools. Our SERVPRO professionals have multiple options for removing standing water from tile and carpeted areas of your facility, from our wet-vacs with extraction wands to our truck-mounted pump options for efficient removal at a rate of 300 psi.

Your patients and staff all depend on a fully functioning medical facility, and when water loss situations occur, this can be challenging to produce. Our SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties team works around the clock to keep your doors open if possible and overcome all of the damaging effects of this water loss incident.

Mitigating Commercial Fire Damage In A Crossville Dental Practice

Working in a historic building has its quirks, especially when dealing with adapting modern electrical fixtures in an older building. One faulty light fixture is all it takes to cause commercial fire damage in the waiting area of your private practice, and it can be challenging to ascertain how long it can take before you can get back to work. Foul smoke odors are off-putting enough, but potentially corrosive soot can damage finishes on wood and electronics if left alone.

If an electrical mishap in a historic building causes commercial fire damage in your Crossville dental practice, the experts at SERVPRO are prepared to save the day. Within hours of your initial call, we can have a team come in to mitigate damage and leave your waiting room looking pristine, “Like it never even happened.”

The first step in addressing odor from any fire is to eliminate soot and residues from surfaces. Our SERVPRO team is equipped with EPA-registered disinfectants that can clean dry soot on surfaces before it can corrode items, especially those with plastic or metal components, in your waiting room. We can also clean the soot out of your vents with agitating tools such as augers, brushes, and air whips, in conjunction with portable vacuums, to prevent the spread of smoke odors throughout your office.

The next step after thorough manual cleaning of surfaces is eliminating odors on a particle level. We have several tools to combat this, from the HEPA air scrubber with a filter that can absorb 99.97% of airborne particles, odors, and gases with an activated carbon and potassium permanganate filter; to the thermal fogger, which emits a solvent-based mist of deodorizers that bind with odor particles to wipe out odors.

SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties is prepared to answer your call 24/7 and ensure that your commercial facilities are restored after a disaster. Give us a call at (931) 250-5333, and we can send a professional team out to your office today.

Whenever disaster strikes, give our SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties rapid response team a call at (931) 250-5333.

Roof Damages Can Flood Exam Rooms Of Your Crossville Clinic

Your Crossville clinic has expensive equipment and tools used to help treat and diagnose the patients that you see throughout the week. With only one severe weather incident, however, the structural integrity of the clinic’s roof can become compromised and allow moisture penetration. With the right level of damage to this critical defense, torrential rainfall and runoff can flow into your building unabated and find its way into examination rooms and office areas of your clinic.

One of the greatest concerns for flood damages in your Crossville medical facility is the inability to continue serving the community while these effects get restored by qualified professionals. Our SERVPRO professionals understand the severity of the situation and can help by responding fast to these emergencies with the advanced tools designed to dry up and clean the damaged areas quickly to get your doors open again to the patients you serve.

Another concern with spreading flood damages is the effect that this moisture can have on sensitive devices and equipment used to diagnose and treat patients that come into your facility. Our SERVPRO team can help with this by setting our Contents Department on the vital task of pack-outs for at-risk contents of your clinic to reduce this risk. These items can get stored safely in our warehouse after drying, and restoration work on the individual items has occurred as needed.

With a fast response to the emergency, there are many areas of your facility that can remain intact after thorough drying efforts from efficient equipment like our high-velocity air movers, dehumidifiers, and our injectidry system that can get used on wall cavities, ceiling materials, and flooring. We can use our moisture detection equipment and thermal imagery to identify lingering moisture that requires further drying efforts to ensure that we have eliminated dampness to avoid costly secondary effects like mold growth.

While you cannot predict when roof damage can allow flooding in your facility, you can prepare by knowing which restoration team can get there quickly with the expertise and equipment to help. Whenever disaster strikes, give our SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties rapid response team a call at (931) 250-5333.

SERVPRO Can Preserve and Clean Wood Flooring in Sparta Commercial Buildings

Water Damage to Your Commercial Property in Sparta

Dealing with water damage is not a pleasant experience. Whether water invaded your business as the result of a storm, a leaky roof or fire sprinklers going off, the result can be quite overwhelming. Recovering your commercial property and bringing it back to par is incredibly important as is working as quickly as possible to avoid further damage and any related loss of income.

Water damage to your commercial property in Sparta can spark many different situations, and at SERVPRO we are ready to help you through them. Very often, our business owners are very concerned with salvaging as much of their establishment as possible, as it represents a significant investment for their business. When there is water damage to your floors, walls, and ceiling, it is important to reach out to our team because we are specially trained to treat each surface individually to attain the best possible results.

If your property has hardwood floors, you may be in luck. Hardwood tends to stand up to moisture better than softwoods when affected by water, and the restoration process can be smoother than with other surfaces. When our SERVPRO team comes into your commercial property with the goal of extracting, drying and recovering it, you can observe that the treatment of your hardwood floors will focus on preventing warping or buckling from becoming permanent. The extent of the damage is determined by how long the floor was soaked and the volume of the water. This is why we can work quickly to begin the drying process, even if the service to restore your hardwood floor to ideal moisture levels takes some days.

Bear in mind that even when our SERVPRO team arrives with the equipment necessary to encourage airflow underneath the floor and speed up the drying process, there may be instances where the floor may not be salvageable. This may be the case if your floor is made of veneer and the veneer separates itself from the subfloor, or if the exposure to water was prolonged. Natural wood floors can often survive a good soaking, but laminates are typically tossed.

Aside from keeping your commercial property as safe as possible, it is important that you reach out to our SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties as soon as possible after you discover the water damage. Our number, (931) 250-5333, is answered 24/7 so we can begin the recovery process as soon as we receive your call, which may make all the difference in protecting your investment.

SERVPRO Gets Gas Station Doors Open Faster After Flood Damage In Harriman

Statistics show that flood damage to gas stations in communities like Harriman can be some of the most challenging events for those businesses to overcome. Nationwide, almost half of all uninsured businesses do not reopen after a storm closes their doors. SERVPRO is committed to driving that number as low as possible and providing the kind of fast, efficient, and cost-effective emergency mitigation and restoration services that businesses need after a storm. Here's a quick overview of how we keep our clients' doors open.

Fast Responses
We have the resources to respond to flood damage in Harriman gas stations and other businesses on a 24/7 basis. As soon as you call SERVPRO, or activate your Emergency Ready Profile, a timer starts ticking for our technicians to arrive on the job site and get to work within four hours. By arriving on the scene quickly, we can immediately start drying the place out and prevent some of the more expensive and time-intensive restorative processes that can keep doors closed and stop revenue from coming in.

Cost-Efficient Treatments
Our use of industrial-strength machinery and treatments help to keep costs low and drying speed high. By using air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out entire floor spaces at once, we can eliminate many of the human resources expenses that come with less well-equipped damage mitigation services.

Why Preparation is Always Key to Efficient Water Damage Remediation in Your Sparta Business

9/23/2018 (Permalink)

If your business suffers from a broken pipe and subsequent water damage, your best bet is to contact SERVPRO immediately for water removal.

Commercial Water Removal Keeps Sparta Businesses Going Strong

When the bathroom pipes in your consignment shop in Sparta spring a leak and send a colossal mess everywhere, getting things dry again protects both your building and your clients' items. Water can become very detrimental to the environment of your shop and make shoppers' experience suffer. The possibility of mildew and mold becoming a problem throughout your shop also increases rapidly.
 
Shop owners who rely on our expertise in commercial water removal methods in Sparta recover more quickly from this kind of disaster. Many shops across the nation close when disasters happen because of the economic hardship and disruption related to these incidents.
 
In September, you can take part in the activities held for National Preparedness Month. SERVPRO's READY Profile Plan also helps reduce response time when catastrophes strike, helping minimize the damages almost all businesses experience when flooded with water. Becoming prepared for events that can damage your business is an essential part of a good business model. Putting a response and recovery plan into place before you need one can help you stay in business by guiding you through the restoration process and ensuring the achievement of your goals.
 
Preparing for disasters also includes planning for events such as fire and storm damage. When either of these occurs, water removal also must take place. Removing water from either firefighting efforts or what the storm pushed into your business must also occur in conjunction with other mitigation efforts. Without removing the water, damage from one area easily spreads to other locations. Moisture can affect your merchandise, and also make your shop's indoor air quality suffer. When items suffer too drastically to allow restoration, we list these on insurance claim forms for your convenience.
 
SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties Strengthens our communities in Fairfield Glade and Sunbright by providing water removal services and other mitigation and restoration techniques when businesses have sustained damage. Contact us to set up your business' READY Profile Plan or to let us know you need immediate services. (931) 250-5333 is our 24-hour services line, and is always available to you, every day of the year.

Commercial Water Removal Technicians in Sparta Discuss Potential Issues

8/14/2018 (Permalink)

If your jewelry store faces water damage problems, call SERVPRO for quick remediation services so that your doors can remain open.

Our Technicians Effectively Dry Out Your Property to Help Prevent Any Mold From Growing

As the old saying goes, horrible things are bound to happen, and it can even occur at your Sparta jewelry store. Some stores are located in a business district on the street level of a multi-story building. When residing on a lower level, your business becomes at risk of water coming into your dwelling from above. When moisture flows into your store from the ceiling, it can ruin many things on its way down to the floor. The longer water pours into your shop; the worse problems can get. Water can saturate and destroy building materials that make up your structure. Excessive moisture elevates humidity levels which can cause issues throughout your place of business. For example, water vapor can cause some types of your products to rust and get destroyed.
 
As soon as a water leak occurs in the same building as your company's location, professional assistance from a restoration team like SERVPRO is a necessity. We can show up to your place very promptly for commercial water removal in Sparta. As soon as we arrive, we assess the situation and determine how severe the problems have become.
 
When a leak takes place within a business district, water often flows overnight when nobody is there. When pipes break or appliances malfunction during non-business hours, problems can potentially get very extreme. In many cases, owners of a company come into their store in the morning and notice that they are walking in deep, standing water.
 
As water sits, the chances you have of your products getting ruined increases. Elevated humidity and moisture levels cannot only damage your precious jewelry but cause fungi to develop. Mold can cause health effects with some, making it essential to prevent microbial growth so that your store is safe for all of your customers.
 
During the mitigation process, our SERVPRO technicians cater to your every need so that we reduce the loss of revenue restoring the damage can create. We take special care to make sure that all of your precious jewelry is kept safe during work procedures and that nothing gets ruined as a result of secondary damage. If you ever notice excessive moisture inside your jewelry store, call SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties at (931) 250-5333 24 hours a day.

When You Need Fast Water Removal In Your Sparta Bookstore

After Water Intrusion, Do Not Leave Your Bookstore Inventory Hanging Out to Dry, Call SERVPRO

SERVPRO Provides Several Methods for Restoring Water Damaged Documents

Running a business is stressful enough without a water damage incident to slow things down for you. While you work hard to ensure that your Sparta bookstore is well stocked in the latest editions and the classics for the readers that frequent your store every day, you also should be mindful of unexpected events that could threaten your business and keep your doors closed to this adoring public. Having a plan in place to contend with a water loss incident, like knowing what professional restoration service to call, can save you time and money in the long run.

There are plenty of ways that water damage can affect your Sparta bookstore, even to the point of requiring water removal services. Whether faulty plumbing or appliances are to blame, or even a neighboring store is the culprit, the sense of immediacy is familiar to any of these. You want to make sure that you do not have to keep your doors closed for long if at all. One way to ensure this is to entrust your business to the experienced hands of our professional restorers.

From the moment that our experienced SERVPRO professionals get the call about the emergency in your business, we respond quickly to help limit the damage to your building and to the stock inside. With so many hardcover and paperback books that you have on the shelves, excessive moisture could ruin them and prevent them from ever getting sold.

For this reason, our SERVPRO technicians can work quickly to remove this stock from the affected area and keep it from getting exposed to the moisture while the restoration efforts are underway. This may sound simple, but anytime papers, documents or books are exposed to moisture degradation begins and possibly even mold development. We cannot always gurantee the complete restoration of these items on your shelves. Immediate drying or freeze-drying with a process called lyophilization can often achieve positive results. Once these complete, and your store is ready for business once again, these novels and publications can get returned to the store to their rightful positions on the shelves.

While running a business might be challenging enough, the last thing you need is to shoulder the burden of excessive water damage all on your own. Give our SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan, & White Counties experienced water restoration technicians a call anytime at (931) 250-5333 to help you clean up the mess and get your business back to ship shape.

Removing Commercial Mold Damage In Crossville

4/24/2018 (Permalink)

In a business like a Crossville pet store, commercial mold damage cleanup centers around the property, rather than the structure.

Commercial Mold Damage

Mold spores are present in every Crossville business. The only difference between them is how a restoration service cleans and removes the mold. A pet store, as an example, is treated differently than a standard office setting.

In a business like a Crossville pet store, commercial mold damage cleanup centers around the property, rather than the structure. In our experience, SERVPRO restoration teams do not have to deal with carpets and much of the building material damage that often comes with a mold infestation.

With a pet store, our teams deal primarily with the retail, front of the business and the storage area in the back. There may also be a private office for the manager, but it is usually small, and our team restores it fairly quickly.

Mold only grows when there is enough water, a food source, and the temperature is between 68 and 86 degrees. While mold does not usually consume padded items like dog beds or scratching posts, the infestation renders them unsafe to sell, since mold can ruin the appearance of an item and the spores can adversely affect some people.

The spores also are easily spread by air currents and by ordinary foot traffic. That means there can be multiple points of infestation, which makes finding the source of the mold more difficult for a SERVPRO inspector.

If there is mold across much of the store, our restoration teams use dry and wet methods. To begin with, they wipe down every surface, including the walls, with dry sponges. The dry method often removes most of the spores and allows us to leave the animals, fish, and reptiles in place.

When this is not enough, our teams use an anti-fungal cleaner to wet a sponge. The cleaner breaks up the mold and lets the technician wipe it from the surface. The wet wiping method usually cleans up the rest of the mold from tables, storage racks, cardboard boxes, and most exposed property.

If there is a small amount of mold left or the item needs a more thorough cleaning, our team may need the store owner to move the animals from the affected area. Our technicians then either spray everything in place or use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to remove the mold. For very thick layers of mold, they may need to use both methods.

Our goal at SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties is to help you reopen your business as quickly and safely as possible. If you need our assistance, contact our team today at (931) 250-5333 with any questions or to schedule a visit.

Fighting Mold Damage In Your Crossville Bakery

Rely on SERVPRO for Mold Remediation to Your Bakery or Other Eatery in Crossville

Trust SERVPRO to Protect Your Food Establishment with Professional Mold Remediation

Your Crossville bakery heavily relies on the foot traffic that comes through the door to stay afloat and succeed through the rise and falls of peak seasons. Even with a highly successful establishment, you really cannot afford for disasters or damages to occur that could potentially close off your doors to your clients and those passersby that might wish to try out your creations.
 
That is why the discovery of mold damage in your Crossville bakery is nothing to shrug off and attempt to clean on your own. It is common knowledge at this point that mold can cause health effects, which can be a harmful situation for you and your staff, not to mention the countless customers that frequent the storefront. Instead of allowing this to continue, or attempting to resolve the issue on your own, it is best left to professional remediation services to rectify the problem quickly and get your doors and kitchen back up and running.
 
The problem with attempting to take care of mold damage on your own is that conventional cleaning methods are rarely effective against even the most ordinary varieties of fungal growth, as they fail to reach the entire organism. Instead of allowing the problem to occur again and again from inadequate removal techniques, it is time to trust our experienced and professional SERVPRO team.
 
From the moment that we arrive, we can address primary concerns like the cause of the mold damage. Surprisingly, in many cases, it has a great deal to do with improper exhaust setups that allow steam and moisture to remain trapped in the warm kitchen. When these two components are constant, you have the right scenario for mold growth.
 
Our SERVPRO remediation specialists get thoroughly trained to handle all varieties of fungal growth, and our remediation and removal techniques come straight from the high standards set in place by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification organization. This certification ensures that our technicians have the skills and the experience with the appropriate equipment to remediate the mold damage to your business and get you back to serving customers quickly. In the case of food service inspections, documented proof of mold remediation can be an added positive feature.
 
When you first discover mold damage in your bakery, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties. Our experienced remediation specialists can be reached anytime at (931) 250-5333.

Sparta Bistros and Bars Stay Open After Water Damage with SERVPRO's Hard Work

SERVPRO Rapidly Extracts Water from Sparta Businesses to Keep the Door Open

Accidents not only happen at home, sometimes things happen to businesses as well. It is a horrible way to start your day when you go to work and find out that something happened to your Sparta company building. Commercial buildings are not immune to having bad things happen to them. When a tragedy at your place of business takes place, there are other things to consider besides just getting the problem fixed.
 
When an emergency takes place and damages your home, repairing the problem is usually all that is involved in damage mitigation. When dealing with commercial water removal in Sparta, there are other factors that our experts at SERVPRO consider. Our crews always fix the problem as usual, but the way in which the problem gets restored may be different than damage mitigation at a private residence.
 
In the instance that water damage takes place in your business, SERVPRO does everything it can to make sure the water intrusion impacts your daily business affairs as little as possible. Our WRT technicians can figure out how to not only fix the problem if it is minor, but keep you from losing money from loss of revenue. When mitigating commercial property, we aim to keep the business disruption-free as possible.
 
Our job is to make the mitigation process as inexpensive yet comprehensive as possible while still making sure the job gets done right. For example, if you own a bar and restaurant and your sprinkler system malfunctioned in the middle of the night, by going off and flooding the entire building, you might need emergency service for water extraction. Perhaps your business is only open from 3 PM to 11 PM, but you do an excessive amount of business during that time. Our crews can change their schedule to complete the mitigation work during the business' after-hours so that you do not lose out on any revenue. By being flexible, small and large business owners and management companies realize that SERVPRO is there to help.
 
Our crews are experienced with reducing downtime from damage to commercial properties and can work hard towards preventing loss of revenue and inconvenience to your customers. If your business suffers any water damage, call SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties at (930) 250-5333 for help 24/7.
