Removing The Water Source That Allowed Mold Damage In Your Nashville Home

6/8/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Removing The Water Source That Allowed Mold Damage In Your Nashville Home One of the typical locations to find mold damage in your Nashville home is down in the lower levels like your basement and cellar area.

Mold Damage In Your Home

When you have discovered mold growth in your Nashville home, your first instinct might be to question the cleanliness of your habits. This is a common misconception about mold and fungal growth, but its presence has virtually nothing to do with the cleanliness of the home that you keep. In fact, it is very simple for mold and microbial growth to happen, and it only requires moisture and warmth to achieve.

One of the typical locations to find mold damage in your Nashville home is down in the lower levels like your basement and cellar area. These areas are warm enough often to support the colonization of mold spores and tend to be the most susceptible areas for moisture and dampness due to their simple construction and vulnerable mortar joints.

Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to not only overcome the mold growth in your home by working to remove the present colony but also to aid in identifying the source of the moisture that allowed the growth in the first place. This inspection of your entire affected area helps to determine what areas need to get isolated with air scrubbers to prevent the spread of active spores and possible points of moisture penetration that allows for the dampness in the room.

If these vulnerable points are small repairs, our SERVPRO technicians can help to seal up these points to prevent further water penetration in the immediate future. For larger and more complex repairs and rebuilds, you have to seek out the services of a qualified residential contractor instead before the remediation work can take place.

Overcoming mold growth in your home is nothing that any homeowner wants to have to contend with, but an unfortunate reality for many people living in the area. The best thing that you can do is to keep close tabs on areas of your home that might be susceptible to moisture and dampness and work to stay ahead of it. Our certified applied microbial remediation technicians at SERVPRO of Madison / Goodlettsville can help you to remove any colonies that you might encounter, and work quickly to return your home to its original conditions. Give us a call anytime you need us at (615) 868-5324.

When Your Nashville Home Requires Water Removal

5/27/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage When Your Nashville Home Requires Water Removal When you continually come home to a wet crawlspace, it's time to discuss sump pumps or encapsulation to stop damaging your home. Call SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Damage as Well as Help Prevent Future Problems

Nashville homeowners are quite familiar with the severe weather damage that could affect their home. Even without the excessive storms passing through the area, natural springs on the property around your home present an ever-present threat to the foundation of your house, with constant water pressure trying to penetrate the blockwork of your basement and crawlspace.  
 
While you might never want to need water removal services for your Nashville home, sometimes nature has other plans. With the degradation of the blockwork used to construct your home over time, the likelihood of impending flooding and substantial damage can prove inevitable for some houses in the area. Fortunately, when it comes to weatherproofing your home against this persistent threat, or removing the damage that has already occurred, SERVPRO is here to help you through it all.  
 
Our team of technicians responds quickly to your call to start assessing the damage that your home faces and what our professionals must do to restore the damage and safeguard your home from further trouble in the future. Starting this process involves locating the source of the damage that you experience right now and sealing up these areas (where possible) with hydraulic cement to withstand the pressure of the water from the exterior attempting to make it in.  
 
More widespread failure of your foundation could require reconstruction efforts from a residential contractor before measures can be taken to restore the damages and safeguard from further issues completely. One of these measures that can get taken and recommended by our SERVPRO professionals is to encapsulate the crawlspace of your home, which is often the source of persistent moisture and dampness to many residences.  
 
This process seals up penetration points in the construction, and then encapsulates the entire area in a thick 12mm plastic sheeting to prevent water from getting into this area, and then making its way into your home. Often the installation of a sump pump is necessary to divert water out of this area. This approach also seals off any exterior points of access, which helps to reduce heating and cooling costs if your crawlspace directly shares adjacent walls and flooring with other areas of your home.  
 
Needing water removal for your home might not be something that you are entirely familiar with, but with the right team of professionals at your disposal, it does not have to feel overwhelming. Our SERVPRO of Madison / Goodlettsville technicians are available 24/7 to help you with any water damage concerns you have and restore your home to the way it used to be. Give us a call today at (615) 868-5324.

Fire Damage Experts In Nashville Describe Cleaning Soot From Fabrics

5/25/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Fire Damage Experts In Nashville Describe Cleaning Soot From Fabrics SERVPRO takes the extra mile to restore your upholstery and personal belongings from smoke damage.

SERVPRO is Here to Restore your Nashville Fabrics Back to Pre-Loss Condition

Many things inside your Nashville home are made out of fibers or fabric material. Most pieces of furniture consist of various fibers that are woven together. Carpets and rugs inside your house contain fibers woven into face yarns. Mattresses and expensive lampshades are also covered with a fabric material.

If a fire starts on your property, your contents and building materials are both at risk. When mitigating fire damage in Nashville, fabric materials are inspected and cleaned of soot and odors if needed. The flames, heat, and smoke coming from a blaze inside a structure can all cause different types of damage.

Flames and heat can burn or char items to the point where they need to be refinished or removed and replaced. The smoke created by burnt materials first moves upward with the heat, then travels throughout the building. Smoke leaves behind soot residues and penetrates into porous materials causing burnt fragrances to exist.

Fabrics are porous materials that can absorb soot and unpleasant aromas. Fabrics are produced using a variety of fibers and constructions. Many fabrics contain multiple dyes, finishes, and coatings.

Our SERVPRO technicians use various techniques when cleaning smoke residues from fabrics without forcing the residues deeper into the fabrics. In many cases, mattresses and box springs are protected from smoke damage from the bedding that lies on top of it. The areas on mattresses that are most exposed are the sides of the box springs. If the fabric surrounding the box springs contain moderate soot residue, then they can be cleaned using hot water extraction upholstery methods.

Many times, lamp shades are not cost effective to clean, so they get replaced when damaged. However, some expensive lamp shades can be cleaned to avoid a costly replacement. Lamp shades can often be cleaned using wet cleaning or dry cleaning with solvent methods. We use caution whenever cleaning lamp shades to ensure that we do not damage any of the trim components or the material.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources



When restoring cleaning soots created by smoke off of fabric materials, we take extra measures to ensure pungent odors do not remain after the restoration process. If you need help cleaning fabrics that contain soot residue, call SERVPRO of Madison / Goodlettsville at (615) 868-5324.

Handling Mold Damage With Much Care in Nashville

Mold Remediation Handling Mold Damage With Much Care in Nashville Don't Dispair in Nashville, Call SERVPRO for Mold Cleanup and Remediation

SERVPRO Remediates Mold Problems Safely and Carefully

Mold damage may lead to health effects, and there is a need to seek professional remediation services. During this process, observing safety measures is a priority and making sure you do not spread the spores to unaffected areas in your Nashville property. To achieve that, getting the basics of containment right is crucial. The fundamental rule is to make sure you do not introduce an airflow from a contaminated area to a clean area thus prevent spreading the spores.

There are many techniques that out SERVPRO technicians use to establish containment during mold damage in Nashville. One of them is by setting up negative pressure on the area that needs containment to prevent the spread of spores. We can also seal HVAC vents and in some cases put in place plastic sheeting to act as containment barriers. Given that there are chances of contaminating the tools we use, disinfecting them is necessary and as a result, we establish cleans rooms to do that job. These isolated small areas also serve as a staging area for donning PPE personal protection equipment when required.

Dependent on the surface with mold growth, our SERVPRO technicians opt for appropriate removal procedures. When working on porous surfaces, in most cases, we remove the materials and discard them. An example of porous materials includes carpeting, insulation, fabrics, and drywall. When dealing with nonporous surfaces, we may decide to use HEPA vacuuming as long as the materials are dry. In some situations, damp wiping may be the best option. When wiping, we use detergents that sanitize the materials to help prevent the possibility of future mold growth cases. When raw wood is infested with mold colonies in a crawlspace or attic, we can use a method called soda blasting that rasps the growth with a pressurized bicarbonate jet spray.

It is also important to note that mold spore settle downwards and that is why our SERVPRO technicians start the cleaning process from the structure's top to its bottom. If there is airflow in the contaminated area, we usually clean surfaces towards the flow of air. Drying the surfaces then follows and the aim is to create unsuitable conditions for mold growth since the spore thrive well in moist conditions.

SERVPRO of Madison / Goodlettsville is a reliable industry leader in fire, water, mold, and storm damage restoration. Call us at (615) 868-5324 to make you feel "Like it never even happened."

Controlling Common Precursors To Mold Damage In Nashville

5/2/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Controlling Common Precursors To Mold Damage In Nashville Even a tiny leak can lead to catastrophic mold damage to your Nashville home if you are not careful.

Mold Damage

Most varieties of mold damage in Nashville require a source of excess water or moisture to begin growing, as their simple physiology needs relatively high amounts of food and water to facilitate rapid reproduction. Unfortunately, most homes in the area are ideal places for spores to grow and spread, as they contain favorable environmental conditions and ample food sources. Controlling water is thus the most important factor in stopping the spread of fungal colonies: watch out for these precursors, and few types of mold can survive in your home.

Leaks
Even a tiny leak can lead to catastrophic mold damage to your Nashville home if you are not careful. Leaks can come from appliances, holes in the building exterior, pipe ruptures, and many other sources. They provide enough water to feed a significant population of spores without drawing much attention from you. Be mindful of potential weak spots in your home where leaks might be likely and, if you have further concerns, contact SERVPRO to find out how we can help without advanced moisture detection tools.

Flooding
Flooding of any kind is a common precursor to mold, as floodwaters can be difficult to drain and dry out within a short time frame. SERVPRO stocks the equipment necessary to dry out your home before mold problems can develop, but response times are critical to our success. Be certain to call us right away if any part of your home floods.

High Humidity
Some types of mold can grow without a source of liquid water and subsist only off of high relative humidity in your home. While this can be difficult to control in cities like Nashville, where humid conditions are the norm, there are some steps you can take to keep moisture in check. Be sure to dry up spills instead of letting them evaporate, keep air circulating in the home, and if problems persist, contact us to find out how we can reduce humidity for you.

SERVPRO of Madison / Goodlettsville responds quickly and professionally to any mold damage call. Call us at (615) 868-5324 so we can treat both the mold and the source of the problem and keep your home secure.
