Water Removal in Your Franklin Home After Toilet Overflow

While the toilet is not always talked heavily about, it is a staple and much-needed addition to your Franklin home. As these fixtures age, however, the components that allow it to function properly can jam or malfunction, causing several potential problems. While some of these might be a drawn-out refilling process that can affect your monthly water bill, more severe consequences might include overflowing of the reservoir when the float mechanism does not engage.

Overflowing reservoirs might not affect your Franklin home with contaminated water, but it does often require professional water removal and recovery.  Even with noticing the problem shortly after it begins, an instance like this can quickly cover the bathroom floor and affect cabinetry and the vanity as well. Our SERVPRO professionals can understand the importance of reacting quickly to this situation, and so our team arrives with the necessary equipment to quickly extract the excess.

The tile or laminate flooring likely installed in your bathroom can resist penetration from the pooling water, but saturation can still occur with these materials if the problem does not get addressed quickly enough. While each plank or tile itself works to resist absorbing the moisture, seams and grout joints are more penetrable. To protect your flooring from extensive damage, extraction must begin shortly after the situation gets discovered.

Our SERVPRO professionals can arrive with high-powered extraction equipment for severe damages like our gas-powered units. For smaller pools, we can also bring in our portable sump pumps and extraction wands. Once the excess has gotten removed from the flooring, we can set up our advanced drying equipment to protect and preserve exposed cabinetry, fixtures, and flooring. We can double check our drying efforts with our thermal imagery cameras to detect lingering moisture pockets that require added attention.

As traumatic as an overflowing reservoir might seem, the right professional assistance can make this water damage “Like it never even happened.” Give our SERVPRO of Williamson County rapid response team a call anytime disaster strikes at (615) 790-9634.

The reason is the kitchen is where electricity, heat, water and oil or grease are in the same area and they can all be volatile.

How Our Fire Damage Specialists Get Rid Of Foul Odors In Your Brentwood Home

Fire Damage How Our Fire Damage Specialists Get Rid Of Foul Odors In Your Brentwood Home SERVPRO of Williamson County can help to restore your home to the way it was before a fire.

Different Chemicals SERVPRO Uses To Eliminate Odors From Fire Damage To Brentwood Homes

Fire damage in Brentwood can often create large volumes of thick smoke that leave permanent damages and odors in your home. The approach SERVPRO technicians need to take towards reversal of damage and removal of odors can vary dramatically depending on the material burned and the presence or lack of moisture and certain chemical compounds in it. Here are several techniques our technicians employ on a day-to-day basis to keep your home free of smoke odors after a fire.

Pairing Agents
Some of the most critical tools we have at our disposal to take on fire damage in Brentwood homes and businesses are our specially-designed pairing agents. These agents are chemical compounds that bond with odor-producing molecules in the smoke residues found throughout your home, eliminating the odors at the source. While these agents cannot typically eliminate odors on their own, they act as a highly effective counterpart to the next weapon in our arsenal.

Masking Agents
While pairing agents are chemically engineered to target specific types of odor molecules and neutralize them, masking agents are more generally applicable chemical compounds that mask and cover odor molecules. Without a pairing agent, masking agents are often ineffective, but with our industry-leading chemical combinations, our deodorizing treatments remain both effective and low-cost.

Absorption and Adsorption Agents
Sometimes, smoke odors may require a slightly different approach to scrub out of your home. For these situations, we can use absorption and adsorption agents, which are as similar in function as they are in their names. Chemicals that absorb odor molecules pick them up and contain them while adsorbing chemicals encourage odor molecules to bond to their surfaces. In both cases, these agents help to remove smells from the air and leave your home with a neutral scent.

SERVPRO of Williamson County can help to restore your home to the way it was before a fire. Call us at (615) 790-9634 to find out more.

Let Our Team Of Professional Assist You When Your Thompson Station Property Experiences Mold Damage

Commercial Let Our Team Of Professional Assist You When Your Thompson Station Property Experiences Mold Damage Addressing mold in commercial establishments presents different dynamics.

How To Handle Commercial Mold Removal In Thompson Station

Mold contamination in commercial areas presents many challenges. In multi-tenant buildings, the problem could originate from one tenant's space and spread to the others. Since the infestation might develop mostly in confined spaces, it might be a big problem by the time of discovery necessitating isolation and other actions that lead to business closure. We have IICRC certified AMRT, Applied Mold Remediation technicians that can fix the problem with minimal downtime for your business.

Proper commercial mold removal in Thompson Station should be uniform to be effective. If your business is in a building with multiple tenants, fixing the problem in your section alone might not be very useful. Remember, moisture issues fuel every case of mold infestation, and if the moisture source is in a different section of the property, cleaning the infested areas is just a temporary solution. Our SERVPRO technicians first inspect the structure to establish all areas with moisture problems. Because we use advanced equipment like thermal cameras, we can detect moisture problems in concealed sections.

Removing the colonies might require different approaches considering in most cases the idea is removal with minimal damages to the affected surfaces. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate the type of material to determine the most appropriate method. For heavy infestations in areas with porous materials, the best option is to remove the material entirely. For non-porous materials can use abrasive methods such as wire brushing to remove stubborn mold residues.

It is necessary to deal with the underlying moisture issue before completing the process to prevent recurrence. Our SERVPRO technicians look for leaks in roofing, plumbing, or HVAC systems to identify the moisture source. Once the source is addressed, we embark on drying the property to normal levels. We have moisture meters and thermo-hygrometers to monitor the moisture levels inside and outside the structure. We also have air movers and dehumidifiers for evaporation and extraction of moisture from the air.

Addressing mold in commercial establishments presents different dynamics. Call SERVPRO of Williamson County to help ease the process. You can reach us at (615) 790-9634 any time.

Advocacy For Vulnerable Children -- A Worthy Cause Supported By SERVPRO of Williamson County

Williamson County CASA recruits, trains, and supports citizen-volunteers to provide friendship and responsible advocacy for abused and neglected children trapped in the legal system.

How Our Team At SERVPRO Will Restore Your Fire Damaged Home In Nolensville

Fire Damage How Our Team At SERVPRO Will Restore Your Fire Damaged Home In Nolensville SERVPRO of Williamson County has the equipment and the trained technicians to complete a fire damage cleanup thoroughly and professionally.

What To Expect From Professional Fire Damage Cleanup In Nolensville

When your Nolensville home suffers the effects of a fire, the cleanup follows a research-driven, proven professional protocol when an experienced restoration company takes on the project. Checking the boxes according to best industry practices developed by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) gives you the best possible outcome and is the approach we use with every fire damage remediation.

Ironically the first job on the list for Nolensville fire damage cleanup is water removal and structural drying. Firefighters work hard to save your property from the destructive flames with unlimited quantities of water. Safety considerations, as well as the considerable risk of permanent structural and property damage from the water itself, demand a primary focus on water remediation.

SERVPRO technicians hold multiple certifications from the IICRC across water, fire, and microbial restoration skill areas. This multi-pronged approach streamlines the project, with soot and smoke cleanup proceeding immediately after the water evacuation. Our crews begin soot cleanup, matching tools and products to the types of residues and soiling involved.

Ashy, loose soot removes with dry sponges and HEPA filtered vacuuming. Paper and wood fuel fires commonly leave this type of soiling. Electrical and other smoldering fires involving fabrics deposit thicker, stickier soot requiring abrasive cleaning tools and products with wetting agents and surfactants that help break down the coating. Protein-based fires in the kitchen deposit a thin but tough film that might need solvents to loosen. SERVPRO technicians are familiar with the evaluation of the residues left by the combustion of a wide range of materials.

SERVPRO crews are expert at odor removal, often needed after fire cleanup. A cleaned home that still holds smoky smells is unacceptable. The odors make it very difficult to move past the fire damage. Our technicians try different techniques to rid the space of malodors, including the use of thermal foggers or hydroxyl generators to neutralize through chemical reactions the tiny odiferous particles airborne or settled on surfaces after the blaze.

SERVPRO of Williamson County has the equipment and the trained technicians to complete a fire damage cleanup thoroughly and professionally. Call (615) 790-9634 to set up an evaluation and get the process moving.
