Plumbing defaults, floods, and sewerage systems defaults can cause much water damage to any commercial building or residential premises in Clarksville, Tennessee. Water damage affects the structure of a house and the contents of that building. Whether the damage is from a pipe break, supply line break, or flooding, it's recommended to work with water restoration professionals who help restore the building to its normal condition. In flood damage mitigation, several things are accounted for because the process can be complex.


Water Damage Mitigation Approach


Initial Inspection

The primary consideration is assessing the entire pipe break or supply line break systems and understanding the work requirements. Therefore, the water cleanup experts must conduct a comprehensive inspection process regarding the water in the home or business premises. The inspection process helps the restoration company understand the cost caused by the flood damages, the time frame of the mitigation process, and the materials and machines required.


During an inspection, the professionals evaluate the cause of the pipe break or supply line break and try to stop excess water from entering the building. Some components inspected by a restoration company include the pipes supplying water on business premises, the water source, and supply lines. If the flood damages contain some sewerage components in the supply line break, the professionals will proceed with the necessary precautions.


Water Removal

After SERVPRO of Montgomery County has inspected the entire project, we'll proceed to the water cleanup process. We'll evacuate the water in business or residential areas, including moisture removal. With good technology and efficient water extraction machines, thousands of water in a home can quickly remove the affected premises.


The Drying Process

After water extraction, SERVPRO uses dehumidifiers and air movers to ensure that space is dried. During the drying process, windows are opened to allow air circulation. Restoration companies must monitor the affected areas and make adjustments to their water cleanup equipment if necessary during the drying process.


The primary objective is to provide the most effective services, save the client money, time, and restore the building to its normal conditions within the agreed period.


Actual Remodeling

Remodeling is the final step in any water damage removal process. The process entails re-tilling the house, painting, reconstruction of the walls and the floor, or even renovating the roof. Every remodeling process in each premise is done differently. This mostly depends on the extensiveness of the damage and the desires of the homeowner. 

The remodeling process reflects the kind of design a homeowner shall have after the entire damage renovation process. The homeowner should define and declare the designs they want to be restored to their flooded homes before the actual work is done. This helps in ensuring that the remodeling fits the desires and anticipations of the homeowner. It also helps the expert know the materials in restoring the flooded home, pipe breaks, and necessary supply line breaks.


Things to Consider


In case you experience floods in your home or business premises, it's essential to start the water cleanup process early. Removing items from the flooded home, such as the furniture, fittings, electrical fixtures, and other belongings, are necessary even before calling the experts. Things that absorb water and cause more flood damages result in additional losses. Contact SERVPRO of Montgomery County to start the mitigation process of your flooded home in Montgomery County.

Common Water Issues for Businesses

If your commercial property experiences water damage, call SERVPRO of Montgomery County! If your commercial property experiences water damage, call SERVPRO of Montgomery County!

For a commercial property owner in Montgomery County, unexpected water problems can be a big issue. Fortunately, water damage professionals can help you assess, clean, and repair damages from any flooding or leaks you may have. Here are a few of the most common water problems a business may face, from leaking pipes to foundation cracks.

1. Pipe Breaks

A pipe break can occur in several ways. Over time, the pipe can age and loosen in its fittings, or extensive use can lead to pinhole leaks. Extreme heat or cold can also affect a pipe’s integrity. A blocked pipe can lead to pressure buildup and eventually burst.

2. Plumbing Backup

Blocked plumbing can even lead to a toilet backup or sink overflow. When a pipe is blocked, water can take the shortest path out regardless of its intended flow path. Blockages can occur from many things, including the buildup of water minerals over time inside a pipe or someone pouring a solidifying material, such as plaster or grease, down a drain.

3. Weather

Extreme weather conditions can also lead to leaking pipes. Cold temperatures can cause the water in pipes to freeze and expand. The expansion puts pressure on the pipe and can create a crack or even cause it to burst. If you know cold weather is coming, you can check with a local professional about what preventive measures to take.

4. Foundation Cracks

Foundation cracks can also become a problem leading to water damage. Water can seep through any cracks and pool, leading to further issues such as mold. Any cracks should be investigated and assessed as soon as possible to determine the best course of action.

Water damage can happen to a commercial property. Fortunately, a professional can fix the damage caused by leaking pipes, foundation cracks, a backed-up toilet, or weather, and help you repair your property. Call SERVPRO of Montgomery County today!

A recent call from a local property owner to check out a restaurant he purchased to renovate resulted in a large mold job for SERVPRO of Montgomery County. Upon entering this abandoned space, it became clear immediately this was a mold remediation job for the experts! So we went to work! With mold covering the walls, the bar area, baseboards, and crown “mold”ing (pun intended), our crew had to suit up with PPE, including respirators and Tyvek suits, to be sure they were protected! Mold remediation is a very tedious job for a home, but it is even more so when it is a commercial property like a restaurant. Containment must be set up to not contaminated unaffected areas. All items with mold exposure had to be disposed of properly. At the end of the demo and clean up, an industrial hygienist was brought in to ensure that the commercial property was checked out!

Mold remediation in a commercial property is a tedious yet rewarding job, especially when we get to see a building brought back to life!

Professional Remediation Vs. DIY for Your Clarksville Home

SERVPRO of Montgomery County can make your disaster "Like it never even happened." SERVPRO of Montgomery County can make your disaster "Like it never even happened."

Many Clarksville homeowners would argue that the methods of repairing and restoring damage to their homes are as effective as the professionals could produce. While there might be instances this could be as effective or more money-saving, mold remediation is not one of these situations. There's some things that every homeowner should know about the differences between DIY mold removal and professional remediation work for their property.

One of the first concerns about mold damage that any Clarksville homeowner should have is the extent of the damage that they are currently facing. Even a small colony can spread quickly and cause potential effects to both the property's structural integrity and those that get exposed to the colony. This safety concern is one of the defining factors that should deter homeowners from DIY removal. Without the appropriate personal protective equipment and training, removal efforts could cause acute health effects.

DIY approaches encourage homeowners to use a harsh detergent like bleach and scrub over present colonies to remove them, but this can prove problematic for multiple reasons. The first of these concerns is that bleach can react adversely with certain mold types and become more volatile. This is less effective because this approach only takes off surface mold and does not remove the entire hyphae like the equipment our SERVPRO Franchise professionals use can.

Another concern is the spread of the organism. Homeowners do not have the available equipment to contain a spreading mold colony as our SERVPRO Franchise professionals do. With air scrubbers, hydroxyl generators, and physical plastic sheeting barriers, we can effectively prevent the organism's spread to new areas of the home. At the same time, remediation and mold removal efforts get underway.

As tempting as it might sound to save money and take care of mold growth on your own, many homeowners find that the situation only ends up continually getting worse despite their efforts.
