HEPA Vacuuming and Damp Wiping as Part of Mold Damage Remediation in Your Lebanon Basement

8/16/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation HEPA Vacuuming and Damp Wiping as Part of Mold Damage Remediation in Your Lebanon Basement Don't panic when you discover mold in your home. Calmly call SERVPRO and we'll handle the remediation process including helping deal with insurance.

There are Many Effective Stages in the SERVPRO Mold Damage Remediation Process

It is a fact that mold loves moisture. It needs a damp environment in which to grow, which unfortunately for you as a homeowner means that if you have any damp areas in your house, there is a chance of mold growing there. Bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms are particularly susceptible and of course so is your basement. Basements are quite often damp and cold, especially if yours is used for storage rather than as part of your home.
 
Even in homes where the basement is just a storage space, it is important to deal with fungus as soon as it is discovered. Colonies that are left untreated have the capability to spread and cause mold damage in Lebanon to other areas of your home. There is also a possibility of items in your basement suffering mold damage and thus needing to be thrown away and replaced. That is an expense no one wants which is why we recommend calling SERVPRO at the first sign of mold – We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
 
There are many stages to mold remediation but today let us talk about two mainstays that help in all containment and remediation situations: HEPA vacuuming and damp wiping.
 
HEPA vacuums contain specialist filters that trap particles as small as 0.3 microns. True HEPA filters are capable of trapping 99.97% of microns of a size of 0.3 microns or bigger. HEPA vacuuming is an important part of mold remediation because the machine traps mold and thus removes it from surfaces.
 
When a surface is dry and nonporous such as plastic, glass or metal, HEPA vacuuming alone might be enough to get rid of the mold. However, it is often necessary to follow up vacuuming with another cleaning action such as damp wiping, especially for wet surfaces or where the mold is growing in a layer of soils.
 
Damp wiping is a simple cleaning action that makes a big difference during the remediation process. Affected surfaces are carefully wiped from top to bottom because spores tend to settle downwards. Our SERVPRO teams have a range of detergents at hand to us during the wiping process and pick the best one for the job.
 
Our IICRC-certified technicians understand the importance of proper technique when vacuuming and wiping, such as cleaning downwards, cleaning in the direction of the negative air machine if there is one in use, and allowing time for spores and dust to settle between cleaning rounds.
 
Do not let mold spread from your basement throughout your home. Call SERVPRO of Wilson County today at (615) 449-5000 for help.

Removing Smoke from Personal Items in a Fire Damage Emergency in Mount Juliet

8/3/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Removing Smoke from Personal Items in a Fire Damage Emergency in Mount Juliet Fires from space heaters left unattended can do plenty of damage. Contact SERVPRO to remediate the damage and for damage prevention tips.

SERVPRO Technicians Assess the Damage and Match it Up With the Most Effective Cleaning Option

It is almost winter, and millions of people are turning to their space heaters to keep warm during the cold spells. Unfortunately, space heaters are one of the leading causes of house fires, at least according to the National Fire Protection Association. Despite their small size, they draw plenty of electricity that tends to overwhelm most extension cords. If the space heater is on, but unattended to, or the unit is too close to a flammable agent such as a mattress, it can start a fire.
 
In the event of a space heater fire, having a restoration company in your emergency contacts is important. SERVPRO has several years of experience dealing with fire damage in Mount Juliet and can respond quickly to your emergency. We use different methods to clean your items, ensuring that everything remains safe during the cleanup process.
 
Removing light to medium non-greasy soils from the fire damage requires dry cleaning. First, SERVPRO professionals clean off surface dust using dusting cloths or feather dusters before vacuuming to eliminate light debris.
 
To remove heavy debris, we use a more aggressive cleaning method: wet cleaning. This process involves using water, with or without a cleaning agent. The item being cleaned up is extremely saturated during cleaning.
 
We also use foam cleaning to reverse smoke damage on upholstery fabrics that may shrink when wet. This technique is especially powerful for light residues or sensitive materials such as box springs and mattresses. If needed, we may use immersion cleaning for materials that do not shrink when completely saturated with a cleaning product. This process is particularly ideal for Venetian blinds that have sustained smoke damage.
 
Several other types of actions come into play in a fire damage situation like this. Detergents allow oil-based soils to blend with water-based cleaning solutions, while alkaline and acidic solutions neutralize each other. Our restorers use these chemical actions to separate smoke residues from the surfaces they attach to during a fire outbreak.
 
Space heater fires are rare and only occur under no supervision. If it happens to you, SERVPRO of Wilson County can respond quickly to counter the smoke and fire damage. Call us right away at (615) 449-5000.

Commercial Water Removal Can Restore Your Lebanon Clothing Shop After A Water Snafu

Commercial Commercial Water Removal Can Restore Your Lebanon Clothing Shop After A Water Snafu Accidents happen no matter how well you might have prepared for them, with some being harder to recover from than other types of disasters.

Commercial Water Removal

Accidents happen no matter how well you might have prepared for them, with some being harder to recover from than other types of disasters. Water spreading throughout an area from a broken elbow joint on a water line is one of these kinds of problems.
 
Lebanon teens want to keep up with the latest trends, and water problems can force them to shop elsewhere, making it imperative that you have access to speedy commercial water removal when you need it most. We know that while your shop is drying out that sales come to a stop and so do your profits. We can begin immediately after our initial assessment is concluded.
 
SERVPRO can handle not only the restoration of your shop's physical structure but also that of your inventory. Furniture, display units, and other movable items can be cleaned and dried. Some of this can be better cared for at our facility and then returned, while other items can be more easily restored on-site, instead.
 
Returning the entirety of your shop, including carpeting and other floor coverings, is essential to protecting your shop from future damage. Water removal always begins with the largest amount of water and works down to the stage of elevated moisture and humidity.
 
Pump trucks are called in when standing water exists in quantities greater than what our handheld units can tolerate easily. These smaller units are used best for situations where carpeting is saturated. Air movers and heaters, along with open windows, when weather conditions have created a dry but warm environment outside, can be used together to dry walls that have absorbed some of the water. We also make sure that the air itself is also returned to normal humidity levels. Allowing humidity to remain in the air can permit this moisture to condense later on surfaces, perpetuating the damage that we worked so hard to eliminate.
 
A fast reaction with a quick phone call to us is easiest when our number is already available in your office or front desk. SERVPRO of Wilson County's phone number is (615) 449-5000. You can call any day, and at any hour to inform us about your situation. We are Faster To Any Size Disaster, no matter what kind.

Dealing with a Waterbed Leak in Your Lebanon Home

6/19/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage Dealing with a Waterbed Leak in Your Lebanon Home When our technicians arrive, we use special equipment to get the standing water out of the room first.

Waterbed Leaks Can Cause Stress, but SERVPRO Can Clean Up The Mess

Everyone loves and needs a good night’s sleep. There has been a lot of effort and science dedicated to achieving it. Between adjustable beds and memory foam, and then, of course, the waterbed, we have a myriad of options when it comes to what we sleep on each night. Waterbeds are strange for sure and feel sort of funny when you first sit on one, but they can give you the restful night’s sleep you are looking for.

A big problem with waterbeds is the fact that their main ingredient is water. If your bed ever becomes punctured, you could be in for a lot of water damage to your Lebanon home. Waterbeds on average hold gallons upon gallons of water, which, if it becomes released, you have a miniature tsunami in your bedroom.

It is best to do what you can to avoid your waterbed mattress from becoming punctured, but when an accident happens, and you have water everywhere, you need help from professionals. SERVPRO are the ones you want to contact to help you clean up the water and salvage your bedroom so that it can be your sanctuary once more.

When you discover a leak in your waterbed of any size, keep family members out of the room. You can damage carpeting by walking on it while it is wet. If it is a small puncture which you can stop from leaking, do so as soon as possible. For a larger leak with much water, turn off the power to the room while you await help from SERVPRO.

When our technicians arrive, we use special equipment to get the standing water out of the room first. Then we test moisture levels in all areas and rooms next to the affected one to figure out the extent of the damage. A combination of non-penetrating, penetrating, camera and infrared moisture detectors are used to assess the damage. Any non-structural, porous materials are also removed from the room to be restored if possible, including carpeting and padding.

The room needs to be sanitized as well with a surfactant and antimicrobial application, along with a HEPA air scrubbing setup to clean the air. We use a balanced drying system to ensure proper and fast drying of the room to prevent additional damage, such as mold.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

SERVPRO of Wilson County takes all the precautions necessary when your waterbed leaks to ensure that your home is once again clean and safe. When this happens to you, give us a call right away at (615) 449-5000 so you sleep peacefully again.

Water Removal In Old Hickory

5/24/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage Water Removal In Old Hickory Regardless of the source of the water, it can quickly destroy property, damage your home, and result in mold problems if not quickly removed.

Water Removal


Flooding can result from failed plumbing, a thunderstorm or even someone forgetting to turn off their sprinklers before going to bed. Regardless of the source of the water, it can quickly destroy property, damage your home, and result in mold problems if not quickly removed.

When it comes to water removal in Old Hickory, it needs to be done by a professional restoration company to ensure your home is dry and safe. SERVPRO has years of experience throughout Tennessee when it comes to pumping out standing water, extracting water from carpets and treating affected surfaces. Once our technicians secure your home to ensure a safe working environment, we bring in pumps to remove any standing water that is higher than two inches. If the power has been interrupted, we provide generators or generator trucks for continuous electrical support. Once every room has been pumped out, one of our technicians will check the crawlspaces in your home for water and remove that as well.

With your floors no longer underwater, the next step is to extract the water trapped in your carpets and wood floors. First, we use moisture meters to determine how much has penetrated them. Next, we move any furniture that might be in the way and to prevent secondary damage as we work.

Now, we replace the pumps with water extractor wands. These devices are designed to draw water out of carpets and floors without harming carpet fibers or the wood surface. If there is a pad underneath the carpet, we remove and dispose of it. It is tough to dry out a pad, and it is certainly cheaper to replace one than pay the cost of restoring it.

With the carpets and floors dry, technicians examine these surfaces for damage. We examine the carpet for bad seams, mold and if the back of the carpet has delamination. Fixing minor seam damage is simple, but large separations and excessive delamination require replacing the carpet. We also recommend disposal if we find mold in the carpet fibers.

If the carpet is determined salvageable, technicians treat the back of the carpet and the floor underneath with a deodorizer and perhaps an antimicrobial agent and then lay it back down. We use the extractor wands again to draw out any possible remaining moisture. Once that is completed, we stretch and reattach the carpet. Removing water from your home must be done quickly and thoroughly. If you have standing water or a wet living room floor, contact SERVPRO of Wilson County. Call us at (615) 449-5000 today.
