Water Damage in Portland
If your Sumner County home has water damage call the professionals at SERVPRO
Water damage is traumatic, often to homeowners as much as their house. The first time you see the water damage is a shock; you may not know where to start in repairing it. However, there are steps you can take in the immediate time after a flood, burst pipe, or other damage that will make it easier to repair your home and move on with your life.
1. Stop the influx of water. You cannot repair water damage while water is still entering your home. If there is a pipe leak or other repair issue, turn off the water supply and have the problem repaired. If the damage is from a storm or flood, use sand bags or other ways of reducing the water. In some cases, people have to wait out the deluge when water damage is caused by a natural disaster.
2. Call your insurance company. It is important to know from the beginning what types of water damage your insurance company covers, as well as whether they will cover water removal and other services. Even if this is not an incident covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy, your insurance agent can still offer you advice.
3. Dry out your home. Standing water and wet upholstery can breed dangerous microbes in just 24 hours, so fast water removal is crucial to your future health. Mop or use a wet vac, bag up clothing and textiles, and throw away things like mattresses that hold moisture and cannot easily be cleaned. Open all windows and turn on fans. This will limit the growth of mold and bacteria while also limiting your exposure to whatever microbes are already present.
4. Call in the experts. Call professional mold inspectors who can look for remaining water in areas where it hides and immediately dry it out.
Water damage can be successfully dealt with if you immediately remove water where you can see it and have an expert deal with it where you can’t. Soon you will be once again enjoying a safe and dry home.

Make sure you get an estimate first if your house has a small damage
If your home or business ever experiences a water or fire damage its extremely important to get an estimate before you do anything else. The reason for this is to make sure a claim needs to be filed or not. One of the biggest mistakes you can make after a damage is to immediately file an insurance claim without having a restoration professional give you an estimate.
For example, Mrs. Smith had a small water damage in her bathroom. She immediately filed a claim with her insurance company then began the restoration process. The problem with this is that the job was so small the estimate was less then what she paid for her deductible. Had she called a restoration company first and gotten an estimate she would have never had to file a claim. Not only would she have saved money but she would have no record of filing a claim, which will be in her advantage when its time for renewals.
Obviously, there is a time when an estimate isn't necessary on the front end. If you come home from vacation and you entire house is flooded that would be a situation in which you would want to get the work started as soon as possible. The estimate would definitely for exceed the deductible in that situation. Next time you have a minor damage at your home or business make sure you get an estimate before directly filing a claim!

If you house is affected by a storm reach out to your local SERVPRO
When most people think of summer they think of warm weather and lake days. While those are all positives there are some negative sides of the summer season. Summer brings a higher percentage of thunderstorms. In the summer, thunderstorms typically develop in the afternoon when the sun heats air near the ground. If the atmosphere is unstable, bubbles of warm air will rise and produce clouds, precipitation, and eventually lightning. This blog will focus on the three ingredients that cause a thunderstorm.
Without moisture there would be no thunderstorms. In the summertime, most areas of the United States have sufficient moisture to generate thunderstorms if the other ingredients are present.
Rising air is needed to produce clouds, and rapidly rising air is needed to produce thunderstorms. For air to rise rapidly, it must become buoyant compared to the surrounding air. When the atmosphere is unstable, air near the ground can become buoyant and rise rapidly through the atmosphere.
Trigger in Atmosphere
This may be some sort of boundary such as a front, heating caused by the sun, or cooling aloft. Once a thunderstorm has developed, it will continue to generate boundaries that can trigger additional storms.
Fast Response Time
A fast response time can save money during restoration
There are many different qualities your restoration company should excel in. The most common ones are industry knowledge, communication, and reliability. If you stay consistent in these specific lanes each job will go smooth. However, there is another big quality that doesn't get talked about enough in the restoration field. That is response time. This measures how fast a restoration company can get onsite from the initial call.
A fast response time can be the difference of thousands of dollars of damage. Here is an example. Customer 1 had a water damage in their kitchen that affected the hardwood floor. They called SERVPRO for emergency services. Because of our fast response time we were able to stop the leak quickly and immediately place equipment to facilitate drying. We were able to save the hardwood floors because of the fast response time.
Customer 2 did not directly call SERVPRO. They called 3 different companies and wanted estimates before any work was to be done. By the time this process took place their hardwood floor began to buckle. Because of this their hardwood couldn't be restored and needed to be removed and replaced. This could potentially cost three times as much as restoring the original hardwood.
When deciding on which restoration vendor to use for your home or business make sure you ask about their response time. Although it might seem like a minor quality it can save you a lot of time and stress during a damage.
Benefits of Commercial Air Duct Cleanings
Having your air ducts cleaned at your home or business is a benefit
During this time of year its important that your HVAC unit is operating properly. There is nothing worse then waking up in the middle of the night sweating because your air conditioner isn't working. This can also be a major issue on the commercial side. This blog will focus on the benefits of having you commercial air ducts cleaned regularly.
- Better air quality: You want the air in your commercial building to always be fresh and clean. When your ducts are dirty, they're lowering the air quality in your space.
- Reduces fire risk from clogged air ducts: When you run the heat in the colder months, heated air moves through your air ducts. This heat has the potential to cause a fire if the air ducts are too dirty. You don't want to put your employees or commercial building at risk with a fire hazard.
- Increase the energy efficiency of your HVAC system: It seems like each year the cost of your utility bills increases. When your ducts are clean, the air passes more easily through them. The system doesn't need to work as hard to push the air, and this can lower your electric and gas bills, depending on the type of heating.
- Lowers the number of employee call-outs due to illness: It's no secret that pollutants in the air create poor air quality. Your employees may experience more allergies or breathing problems when the air quality is lower, meaning that they stay home while they get better. With improved air quality, you might see the number of people missing work begin to lower.
- Removes or reduces unpleasant odors: Does your commercial building have a smell that you can't get rid of? It might be because the source is inside your air duct system. Cleaning the air ducts on a regular schedule helps airflow more properly throughout your building and minimizes any unpleasant scents.
Tornado Watch vs Tornado Warning
Its important to understand the difference between a tornado watch and a warning
With spring storms in full effect I thought it would be a good idea to create a blog that dives down to the difference between a tornado watch vs a tornado warning. These terms get thrown around quite a bit during this time so I think its important to have an understanding on the difference.
The best example I've heard that shows how they differ is to think of it in cooking terms. Instead of using the term tornado we will use tacos. A taco warning means all the ingredients are there but there are no tacos yet. Meaning you have a shell, meat, and toppings all separate but they are available.
A taco watch meaning all the ingredients are put together and the taco is here and ready to be eaten. This same comparison is true for a tornado warning.
