Check Water Pressure - Often never thought of to check, however, a faulty pressure-reducing valve can cause terrible outcomes. If your water pressure is too high it can harm your home’s pipes, appliances, and connections inside your home.

Clean Refrigerator Coils - Refrigerator coils (located in the front or behind your fridge) can build up in dust and debris. When this happens the compressor on your fridge is working harder than it should and can cause the compressor to stop working. A simple vacuum cleaner - cleaning can help reduce this dramatically.

Drain Your Water Heater - Sediment can build up in your hot water heater. By draining your hot water heater annually, it can remove excess sediment and give your water heater much more life.

BUSINESS

Service HVAC - Good things to watch out or when it comes to your commercial HVAC are signs within the business. A few signs that you should contact someone to check your HVAC: The noise of your HVAC becomes louder than normal, Power bills increase, or you begin to smell unpleasant odors.

Seal Cracks in the Parking lot - Asphalt parking lots can get cracks and if left untreated your parking lot can begin to have potholes, reduce curb appeal, and can lower your lability. 

Talk to your Tennents - Listen to the people in your building. They can be hyper-conscious to either current maintenance issues that should be addressed.

Protect Your Home from Floods | SERVPRO® of South Nashville

6/20/2019 (Permalink)

There are steps homeowners can take to protect yourself and lessen the hassle after the storm passes.

If you think that your home isn’t at risk of flooding, you might be surprised.

Some form of flooding is involved in 90% of natural disasters. That is why homeowners are advised to be educated on how to prepare, even if they don’t believe they are “at risk” for a flood.

Ways to Protect Against Flood Damage

It is alarming to learn that a flood is on the way, but homeowners can take steps to lessen the damage rising waters will cause:

Have a conversation about emergency procedures. All members of your household should understand how to cut off the electricity to the home in case of waters rising, and you should also have an evacuation plan put in place.

Turn off electricity. One can never be too safe where electricity and water are concerned. Turn off the electricity to all areas of the house that might sustain water damage to prevent risk.

Anchor fuel and propane tanks. A tipped fuel tank can lead to a dangerous spill or even a fire, and floodwaters can often be the cause. Remove fuel tanks from the property or anchor them securely.

Digitize valuables. Precious and irreplaceable items such as family memorabilia, tax records and household documents, should be digitized and the physical copies kept off-site or in a waterproof safe.

Protect appliances. Elevating appliances can go a long way in preventing their internal workings from getting waterlogged and malfunctioning. Cinder blocks or other household materials can be used to elevate them off the ground.

Elevate hazardous materials. Household substances contain many chemicals that can pollute water and make it dangerous for the entire area. Elevate these substances to prevent toxic leaks.

Your family’s safety is of chief concern when a disaster is imminent, but there are also steps you can take to protect your home and lessen the hassle after the storm passes.

If you’ve experienced flood damage or water damage from other causes, SERVPRO® of South Nashville is here to help. Our technicians are fully trained in water remediation, and our 247 Emergency Line means we’ll be there for you when you call.

Our “Restore First” Mentality Can Help You | SERVPRO® of South Nashville

6/6/2019 (Permalink)

Our "restore first" mentality helps to reduce those life interruptions caused by the disaster.

We are well known for coming to your aid quickly when disaster strikes, but there is another reason why we should be one of your first calls if the worst should occur.

When it comes to helping you with your property damage, our technicians have a “restore first” mentality, using specialized equipment and cleaning techniques. This mentality helps to reduce those life interruptions caused by the disaster and helps get your home or business back to pre-disaster condition.

Restoring Your Home Post-Disaster

Knowing what to do after a fire has damaged your property is stressful, but that’s where we come in. Once you contact us, our team will spring into action.

Fire damage is different for every event, and while our highly trained team works to develop a unique solution that is tailored to your needs, the general process remains the same.

Here are the steps that are included in our process:

1. Emergency contact. When you call us, we will ask you a series of questions regarding the fire damage. By doing this, it ensures we dispatch our team with the appropriate equipment and resources.

2. Inspection and fire damage assessment. When our team arrives on the scene, you will see them inspect and test adjoining rooms of the property to determine the extent of fire, smoke and soot damage. This helps us determine the right plan of action moving forward.

3. Immediate board-up and roof-tarp service. Fire damage can compromise windows, walls and roofs, so a priority will be to make sure that your property is secure and protected from further damage by boarding up missing windows and walls and placing a tarp on damaged roofs.

4. Water removal and drying (if water damage is present). Since water damage from firefighting efforts often accompanies fire damage, we’ll begin the removal process right away. Dehumidifiers and air movers are brought in to remove the remaining water and finish up the drying process.

5. Removal of smoke and soot from all surfaces. We have specialized equipment and techniques that are used to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls and other surfaces.

6. Cleaning and sanitizing. We will clean restorable items and structures whenever possible. They will not only be cleaned, but industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment are used to help remove odors.

7. Restoration. Our final step in the restoration process is getting your property back to pre-fire condition. Restoration includes minor repairs like replacing drywall, painting and installing new carpet, or it could also call for major repairs like reconstruction of damaged areas.

Remember, if you need us, we’ll be there—no matter the time or day. The team of highly trained restoration experts at SERVPRO® of South Nashville is available for emergency cleanup and restoration services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

How to React to Water Damage | SERVPRO® of South Nashville

5/29/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO® of South Nashville is here to help, no matter what size job.

Whether it’s from a sudden flood or a hidden leak, discovering water damage anywhere in your home or business can be alarming. However, by staying calm and following a few steps right away, you can get your property on the road to recovery in no time.

Determine What’s Safe

The most important thing when you discover water damage is determining the safety of your location. Turn off the power if need be, make sure floors and ceilings are structurally sound and ensure that there aren’t electrical items that could cause shocks when wet. Never stick around a potentially hazardous area to attempt cleanup.

Call the Professionals

After you’re sure the situation is safe, consulting with a professional service should be your next step. With a Master Water Restorer on staff, a 24/7 Emergency Service line and the ability to work with your insurance on your behalf, we can provide a solution tailored to your situation and get your life back to normal faster.

Move Items Out, Move Air In

As you’re waiting on us to arrive, this is the perfect time to salvage what you can from the damaged areas. If any items such as furniture, fabric and papers are affected, moving them out can make them more viable for restoration later on.

If the weather outside is dry and not too humid, opening a window and creating airflow can begin the process of evaporating water from drywall and floors. We’ll tackle the big stuff once we get there, but these small steps can go a long way.

Wipe Up What You Can

While a mop can’t take the place of professional restoration, blotting and mopping any standing water can certainly have an impact. If you’re able, clear out puddles and stagnant water with a mop or water-rated vacuum cleaner to start working your way toward a drier room.


If you’ve experienced water damage, SERVPRO® of South Nashville is here to help. Call us today for your home or commercial needs—we’re faster to any size disaster.

You Kitchen Could Be a Major Fire Hazard | SERVPRO® of South Nashville

5/23/2019 (Permalink)

Cooking fires are rated as the No. 1 cause of home fires and injuries.

Cooking fires are rated as the No. 1 cause of home fires and injuries, with the leading cause of these kitchen fires being unattended cooking.

The kitchen can serve as a family hub and is a wonderfully versatile place—a place for family and friends to gather, for quality time to be spent and where some delicious eats are cooked up. Unfortunately, the kitchen is also the space where many home fires occur.

In 2017 alone, State Farm paid out over a whopping $130 million in homeowners insurance claims related to grease and other cooking fires. According to the insurance company, these are the worst states for kitchen fires:

  • North Carolina
  • Texas
  • Pennsylvania
  • California
  • Ohio
  • Illinois
  • Maryland
  • New York
  • Alabama
  • Georgia
Fire Safety While Cooking

Leaving your cooking unattended is not a habit to embrace, and you should stay in the kitchen while cooking. This is not the only fire safety tip you should be following. Here are some other helpful tips to observe while cooking:

1. Be careful about the type of clothing you wear when cooking. Does your outfit have long, flowing sleeves or is it big and baggy? It could catch on fire if you aren’t careful while cooking over the stove. It’s best to wear short or close-fitted sleeve shirts and make sure any baggy shirts are tucked in or tied back.

2. Watch the items around the stovetop. Make sure you don’t have kitchen towels, oven mitts, appliance cords or even curtains too close to the stovetop when cooking. Ideally, anything flammable will be moved away from it.

3. Have a fire extinguisher easily accessible to the kitchen. Hopefully you have at least one fire extinguisher located in your home, ideally one that is near your kitchen. Make sure you know how to properly use the extinguisher, just in case it is ever needed.

4. Do not throw hot grease in the garbage can. The grease may not be on fire, but it could be hot enough to cause something in the trash to burn. You should let the grease cool a bit and then dispose of it in an old coffee can. Also, know the smoke points of the oils you cook with. Be sure to never subject a low-smoke point oil to high heat when cooking, as it could catch fire.

5. Have a fire escape plan established for all to be aware of. Thinking about the worst-case scenario is never fun, but it’s better to be prepared rather than unprepared if an emergency were to occur. Go over exit routes and designated meeting points with your family, making sure that everyone knows what to do.

Fire safety in the kitchen is an absolute necessity, as it can help prevent dangerous and destructive cooking fires. If your home has experienced damage from a cooking fire, know that SERVPRO® of South Nashville is here to make it “Like it never even happened.”
