SERVPRO Saves Deep Shag Carpeting in Knoxville Dive Bar

This area of Tennessee is no stranger to intense storms and tornadoes, and commercial flood damage has the potential to affect the livelihood of a business. It is important to begin restoration efforts as soon as possible after water damage to avoid secondary losses.

Commercial flood damage to a Knoxville hotel from a storm causing a roof leak over several rooms can be devastating if not adequately cleaned. The hospitality industry is competitive and thrives on word of mouth referrals and social media and Yelp reviews. Patrons expect clean rooms and no foul odors, which poorly mitigated water damage leaves behind.

When SERVPRO technicians arrive on-site to remediate water damage, they immediately tarp over any areas where further entry of rainwater can occur. They use state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment to determine where accumulations of moisture are within the structure and contents.

Our technicians are trained and certified to handle controlled demolitions to safely remove drywall, carpeting and other structural components too damaged to restore through our proprietary methods. We pack out Items that show potential for restoration through cleaning at our location. Restoring rather than replacing is our goal for businesses affected by water loss.

Before any rebuilding occurs, the structure must be dry. Attention to this detail negates the potential for mold growth and foul odors. Technicians extract as much water as possible and spend extra time on this step. Walls can retain moisture, flood cuts on the lower area of the drywall above where moisture has wicked, allow for airflow behind standing walls.

After drying and disinfection, our technicians offer suggestions for rebuilding through our Building Services. In this way, we can provide the hotel owner seamless support from the beginning to end of the restoration process so they can reopen as quickly as possible and get back to hosting guests.

SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville helps businesses overcome commercial flood damage with fast action and application of our equipment and techniques.

Water Damage We Use High-Powered Equipment Necessary In Knoxville Water Damage Restoration The extent of the water damage may require significant material resources and the trained crews to operate them. We are prepared on all fronts.

Where to Seek Water Damage Restoration for Your Knoxville Home after a Plumbing Leak

Leaking pipes are a major cause of water damage in homes. Water pipes may seem watertight, durable and airtight on the surface, but excessive shock and pressure can ruin them. Construction-related activities can ruin water lines and cause hard-to-control gushes that can flood your home quickly.

When you notice water damage in your Knoxville residence, it is essential to hire professionals who offer water cleanup services immediately to prevent additional damage and accidents. Porous materials like carpets, upholstery, and insulation usually sustain the most significant water damage. Unsealed cement and drywall are the other porous materials, which can degrade because of exposure to water. If these materials are exposed to water for too long, you must replace them.

Shutting off the water source is the first step in the cleanup process. The professionals at SERVPRO can help you restore your property to its pre-water loss condition. We can arrive at your home soon after receiving your call and assess the destruction. Our technicians can then take the right steps to remove any standing water, dry the affected areas, and deodorize your home to eliminate bad odors.

We use high-powered equipment like air movers to dry the wet surfaces. Air movers promote fast drying of surfaces like walls and floors by aiding the circulation of air in the entire indoor space. The air that has touched a saturated material like a carpet has high humidity. Air movers introduce air at the surface level, replacing the highly saturated air with drier air to improve evaporation. We place the appropriate number of air movers on the affected areas to create airflow across the wet surfaces.

Our SERVPRO technicians also use commercial dehumidifiers to eliminate excess moisture from the air, which can contribute to mold growth. Dehumidifiers come in non-ionizing and ionizing models and a range of sizes. We can also use air scrubbers to help restore sanitation and cleanliness in your home by eliminating the musty smells linked to water damage.

If your home has water damage caused by a plumbing leak, SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville can help you to handle it. Contact us today at (865) 862-8907 for fast restoration. We have the equipment and expertise to make the damage seem “Like it never even happened.”

Flood Damage Restoration for Your Knoxville Home

Trees can add a natural landscape and beauty to your Knoxville home. However, during a storm, one of your beautiful trees may become a significant threat to your home and your family. If the tree falls on your home during a severe storm, it can create flooding inside your home.
 
When this happens, ensure everyone gets out of the home as soon as you can for safety reasons. Once the storm subsides, you need flood damage restoration services for your Knoxville residence. SERVPRO is always ready for you, and we have the tools and experience needed to get your home back in order as soon as possible.
 
When the rainwaters have accumulated to a few inches or more, SERVPRO technicians can make use of our robust, truck-mounted pumps to remove as much water as possible in a quick manner. Once this is done, if there is carpeting in the affected area, we use moisture sensors to find how much moisture is in the padding and carpet. The sensor is equipped with sharp probes which penetrate down under the padding to see if the water migrated to the subfloor underneath. Typically, these floor coverings must be discarded, but circumstances are first evaluated in the chance of salvaging them.
 
Thermal imaging cameras are used to inspect and monitor the moisture in any building materials, while centrifugal air movers and dehumidifiers are used to finish the drying process of the structure and the air. We move quickly, but thoroughly to avoid any additional damage to your home, such as mold growth.
 
Trees are shallow rooted, and when it rains heavily in urban areas, it can cause trouble for the trees and the people who live near them. It is difficult, however, to give specific answers as to why trees topple in heavy rainfall. Usually, it is a combination of factors which makes the trees susceptible to blowing down and causing you a terrible day. While on the scene, we attempt to cover any breaches in the structure to mitigate the water damage from rains.
 
SERVPRO of Rocky Hill/Sequoyah Hills/South Knoxville is here to come to your rescue should a tree cause a flood of rain to enter your home in Bearden, Fort Sanders, or Rocky Hill. As soon as you are safely out and the storm subsides, give us a call at (865) 862-8907 so we can help you right away.

Electrical Overload Fire Damage in Rocky Hill

3/7/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Electrical Overload Fire Damage in Rocky Hill Sometimes too many appliances plugged into an outlet can cause a fire. Or wires in a house are older and spark. Contact SERVPRO for remediation.

Team SERVPRO is Ready and Available Around the Clock, Especially When Homeowners are Facing Damage Remaining From a Fire

When Rocky Hill homeowners try to enhance the electrical capability of their houses, fire damage can result. Older homes with antiquated wiring are at obvious risk, but new construction also is not always equipped with outlets everywhere you might wish. If your attempts to accommodate appliances cause an electrical fire, we have the resources to help you respond and recover.
 
Family gatherings are hectic enough, but when competition for the last outlet in your home ends with fire damage in Rocky Hill from inadequately rated extension cords, you and your loved ones face evacuation rather than a cozy, congenial time. Today’s explosion of countertop appliances -- deep fryers, new age pressure cookers, stand-alone rotisseries, and convection ovens, to name a few -- join slow cookers, mixers, blenders, and food processors jostling for a grounded outlet. We have seen how this traffic jam ends in a smoldering fire or sparked blaze and can respond quickly, even on a holiday or weekend.
 
The thick and acrid smoke and soot from an electrical fire is a challenge for which our SERVPRO team trains continuously. You may despair of restorative efforts making a dent in the widespread residue, but our IICRC trained technicians master effective techniques that clean soot, restore finishes, and eliminate that horrible burning wire odor. An experienced project manager assesses the particular circumstances and develops a comprehensive plan. Then our fire damage crew systematically moves through your home, rapidly but skillfully using the proper products and techniques to clear away the coatings.
 
If your HVAC system operated during the fire, it may be contaminated and need cleaning as well. It should be deactivated until evaluated to prevent further spread of the soot and debris. If firefighting efforts used water, we likely attend to that first, removing water and assessing the moisture content of structures to avoid mold damage or the deterioration saturated woods and metals suffer if not quickly dried.
 
Finally, our deodorization specialists ensure all smoky debris are discarded. If odor persists, we clean surfaces and consider sealing porous materials to keep the odoriferous particles from vaporizing. Professional deodorization sprays may be effective, but we also use thermal fogging, a process that replicates the environment where the odor particles were dispersed. A heated chamber combusts the deodorant, allowing the now minuscule bits to find and neutralize the odor molecules. Hydroxyl generators are another option, changing the chemical composition of the tiny bits of smelly debris and rendering them odorless.
 
Look to SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville when an electrical fire threatens to derail your plans. Call us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at (865) 862-8907.
