Spring is HERE!

4/13/2021 (Permalink)

Spring is here and that means it is time for SPRING CLEANING!!!!! Growing up I remember always having to do spring cleaning at home. This was when we packed up all of our winter clothes except for a few sweaters and brought down all of your spring and summer clothes get them all clean and organized and then you cleaned the house from top to bottom. “White glove clean” is what we like to say.

With your business it can be very similar, we receive many calls in the spring to come and “spring clean” facilities. While January is the start of the year it is always nice to get everything clean and tidy when the temperatures start to warm up. Call us today to schedule your free cleaning estimate. We even do ducts.

When It Rains It Pours

3/19/2021 (Permalink)

We are so blessed to have gotten so many calls when we had the freeze back in February 2021. We were able to help so many business and homeowners. One call that stands out was a local business that was surprisingly the first call during the storm. We received the call that a pipe in the ceiling had burst. They had turned off the water but the pressure in the line had caused so much damage. They thought they had the pipe fixed and turned the water back on and a different spot burst from where it had frozen while the water was off. They had a huge mess. The temperatures had been so low that this happen 4 times all because the water kept freezing in the line because we had to turn the water off. The entire office had been wet at one point or another. We knew just how stressful that situation was of the business but we were so happy that they trusted us to just keep working even if the water just kept coming. Our goal is “Like it never even happened,” even if it feels like it will never stop. 

We Are The Best At Fire

We know many of us have had issues with small appliance in their homes in the past. We get calls about fry daddy’s, toaster ovens, toasters, microwaves, and pressure cookers. Recently, we received a call about soot damage which isn’t unusual. We get calls about soot damages fairly frequent. The soot damage was caused by the microwave. It seems the homeowner was heating up dinner in the microwave and it malfunctioned causing smoke and soot to fill the home. The smoke and soot left behind so much residue. That’s when the homeowner knew she needed to call someone and why not call the best.

The customer called us and we were able to come out and clean the residue from the walls to the ceilings to the floors and cabinets. If you ever find yourself in a predicament that you need fire clean up, call the best in the business and that is us.

Fire, Water, And Supporting Fire Fighters

3/19/2021 (Permalink)

Most times when people hear the word “fire” they think flames and burns. But in our case that’s just the origin in which the damages started. What most people don’t realize is that in the case of a fire damage there is often times water damages along with that. For instance, when you have a fire damage the fire department will come in and put the fire out with water. There is a full process when putting out a fire and each fire is completely different. A fire can destroy everything in just a matter of a couple of minutes. Time is of the essence and water is the worst enemy of most fires. We are so thankful for all of our local fire departments that we have had the luck to be supporters of. 

Who Will You Call When Fire Causes Chaos To Your Life

Fire can be a harsh yet amazing thing. I love Spring and Fall, getting to sit around the fire pit roasting marshmallows and laughing with friends are some of my favorite past times. The fire can be so nice and cozy but it can also be fierce and unforgiving. 

Fire knows no boundaries. It will attack your home, clothing, your favorite teddy bear, your wedding dress, everything. One thing that is just as destructive is soot. Soot will attach to everything and can ruin your most precious possessions. We at SERVPRO take time to learn the best practices to restore your favorite things to pre-fire conditions. While pre-fire condition is not always achievable we always do our best to exhaust all means to get there. Our goal and motto is “Like it never even happened,” and we stand by that.

Soot Damages Caused by Boiler

3/18/2021 (Permalink)

With recent events of low temperatures, we had many people call about damages to not only their home from water, snow, and ice but also fire and soot damages. 

The most recent unique job that comes to mind is a boiler causing soot damage in a home. Boilers are typically older and not as well known anymore. This particular instance was cause when the temperature in the boiler got too high causing a spark which in turn caused a flame that spread soot throughout the entire home. Luckily, that was the extent of the damages. SERVPRO of Dyersburg/Union City was able to come into their home and clean the soot from all surfaces leaving the home “Like it never even happened.”

Call us today for any of your commercial or residential needs.

Tornadoes Are FAR From Logical

3/16/2021 (Permalink)

April Showers bring May flowers. But there is also a chance for there to be a tornado and those flowers will not make it to May to see the beautiful sunshine. 

In Northwest Tennessee, we tend to get lots of straight line winds along with favorable conditions for tornadoes. Many people not from here wouldn’t think that to be true, but being a Tennessee Native born and raise I know that to be the case. 

Last year my parents neighbors home suffered from tornado damages, while my parents home was left unfazed. Tornadoes are very unpredictable but even less logical when it comes to route of destruction and how one home can suffer so much damage and the next can look like nothing happen. 

Growing up one of my favorite movies was Twister and even now I love watching it. I feel like it tries to bring a logical nature to something completely spontaneous. Kind of like SERVPRO we try to bring calm and ease into your life when everything seems to be going wrong. That’s why we stand by “Here to Help.”
