Your Family Home Needs Water Damage Restoration

A storm's heavy rain and powerful winds can seem bad enough while passing through your Sevierville neighborhood. SERVPRO is always prepared to help with water damage restoration before it can worsen and become more costly.

Some homeowners might notice new leaks in their ceiling or areas where the water came splashing over the side of their otherwise well-functioning gutters. If you find these or other problems affecting your property in Sevierville, a reliable water damage restoration team can make everything "Like it never even happened."

The experienced crews at SERVPRO know how to handle the damage and destruction a heavy storm can create. Water damage restoration includes addressing the following:

  • Intrusive water,
  • Structural damage, and
  • Foreign debris accumulated outside.

Removing all of the water that entered your house helps prevent additional damage. We also tarp any openings so more rain cannot enter. Storms can force rain through windows, attic vents, and other places. Your home can end up wet without any flooding. We have the necessary equipment to remove the water and dry your house.

Water can cause damage immediately when soft materials like drywall are involved. Other materials, such as wood, concrete, and brick, are more durable but can still sustain damage. We know how to restore these for you. If the force from the winds demolished your gutters, we could discuss with you possible steps. Gutters are an essential feature of your home that provides important protection.

Sometimes, storms only cause problems outside. Perhaps a tree lost some limbs – we can clean it up. Maybe the wind blew some lightweight garbage into your yard – our crews can gather it and bag it for you.

Our employees are skilled in managing the restoration work so our customers can relax. We understand that seeing your home sustain damage can cause you unwanted stress. Call SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties at (865) 429-8885 to talk to us about water damage restoration for your residence.

First Actions After Flood Damage Make the Difference in the Amount of Loss in Gatlinburg Homes

The sheer panic that a Tennessee homeowner feels when flood damage occurs may make the situation feel initially overwhelming. Actions taken in the first 24 hours after floodwater enters a property make the difference in the amount of loss.

Following flood damage, Gatlinburg homeowners should contact SERVPRO for cleanup. Occupants and pets should not come into contact with groundwater, as it may contain toxins or sewage.

What Can Homeowners Do Before Help Arrives?

Placing towels to absorb and isolate stormwater can mitigate the damage. Do not handle the saturated things until SERVPRO technicians arrive and test the water. Remove valuables and heirlooms if they are in the area of the flooding if you can do it safely. The technicians can do it for you upon arrival if you cannot.

If it appears the water may come into contact with electrical outlets, turn off the electricity to the home. Alert the lead technician if this is necessary so they can bring their generators to the job site.

How Does SERVPRO Remove Floodwater?

It depends on the amount and location in the home. For crawlspaces, basements, and severe flooding in a home, the technicians may choose to use trash pumps or submersible pumps to remove the water without delay.

What About the Water Odors?

Floodwater brings in a myriad of odors, and thorough removal of debris, flood-damaged building materials, and property drying reduces the smell. Thorough hand cleaning of surfaces with their professional solutions kills odor-causing bacteria. Sometimes there are residual water odors that require a multi-layered approach of various applications of odor control techniques such as hydroxyl generators or ultra-low-volume fogging.

SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties at (865) 429-8885 when you need fast action against flood damage in your home. The technicians have a vast array of equipment and the training to make the water loss in the house "Like it never even happened."

Many steps are relevant to recovering a flooded Sevierville home. Many homeowners instantly assume that widespread flooding in the main levels of their properties is indicative of a total loss.

It is important to note that in widespread flooding scenarios, it is unlikely that your home can go without requiring any reconstruction or repair.

Every loss situation that our team addresses often involves multiple divisions of our entire roster, much like water restoration technicians are often necessary to address extinguishing methods in a fire recovery project. With storm and flood losses, our SERVPRO team must mitigate the acute effects by employing emergency construction solutions, including roof tarping, board-ups, and tree removal. The sooner that these vulnerabilities to your house’s exterior can get addressed, the more efficiently we can stop water penetration that can add to the destruction of your property.

We can monitor our progress with moisture content readers, and work to protect the framing, supports, and joists of your home when possible.

How Water Restoration Companies Work in Sevierville Properties

4/5/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO restoration equipment being used in water damaged room Water restoration starts with understanding the problems caused by the high moisture levels, contaminants, and soils introduced in the house.

SERVPRO Takes a Comprehensive Approach When Restoring Water Damage in Sevierville

Storms leave Sevierville homes inundated with water when they cause roof leaks or groundwater rises several inches entering the house through doors and other openings. Hiring water restoration companies helps ease the work involved in remediating the damages.

Water restoration companies offer Sevierville homeowners a unique advantage by using procedural approaches when handling damages. SERVPRO is highly committed to ensuring the delivery of quality outcomes.

Other benefits include access to:

  • Advanced equipment
  • Highly skilled staff
  • Dependable customer service

Water restoration starts with understanding the problems caused by the high moisture levels, contaminants, and soils introduced in the house. Each incident differs in terms of the general intensity or the level of specific problems such as soiling. Once the incident is understood, it is easier to prioritize or dedicate more resources.

Steps during professional restoration:

  • Inspection and assessment
  • Water removal
  • Cleaning and sanitizing
  • Drying and dehumidification

Our SERVPRO crews perform both inspection and assessment of the damaged property. Although the two terms may mean the same thing, there is a slight difference. During an inspection, our crews identify what might be damaged before assessing the level of deterioration to determine whether items or materials are salvageable or not.

Speeding Up Restoration

Prioritizing water removal is essential since it is the first step in controlling moisture inside the house. Our SERVPRO technicians use powerful pumps to facilitate quick extraction.

Once soggy materials and standing water are addressed, the property needs a thorough cleaning process to remove any soils. Soiling is most heavy when groundwater is involved. It can also arise from running dyes, resins, or other discharges released from the deterioration of materials. Our crews use different cleaning agents like detergents, antimicrobial products, and advanced equipment to facilitate the cleaning and sanitization of affected areas.

SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties is one of the reliable water restoration companies that can help you combat the effects of a storm "Like it never even happened." You can reach us at (865) 429-8885.

SERVPRO storm damage sign Storm damage restoration is no DIY project. SERVPRO uses the latest technology and equipment for every disaster. We are here to help.

We Employ a Variety of Time-Tested Methods to Neutralize Them in Sevierville.

One of the unpleasant, lingering effects of flood damage in Sevierville homes is the foul odors it leaves behind. These smells are caused by all of the debris, chemicals, and harmful microbes carried by this polluted storm water. Fortunately, services like SERVPRO can usually neutralize them effectively and return your residence to its pre-flood state.

SERVPRO, using its time-tested methods, has successfully eliminated unwanted flood damage odors from Sevierville homes on countless occasions. At the same time, our skilled experts have also performed water removal services, bio-hazard remediation like sewage cleanup, and water damage repairs. Regardless of the work we are doing, our methods are what get it done right. When it comes to odor remediation, some of our tried and true procedures are as follows:

  • Employing high-velocity box fans before and after intensive deodorization efforts start to ventilate structures and make them safe for occupants quickly
  • Using cutting-edge air scrubbers to remove odorous smoke particles and chemicals from interior air
  • Spraying disinfectants directly on smelly, flood-impacted areas and items that are unlikely to suffer discoloration
  • Dry fogging areas and materials that have experienced smoke damage, allowing vaporized deodorants to bond with and neutralize odor particles
  • Wet fogging with ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers so that the small deodorizing particles it produces can infiltrate the tight places where foul smells linger
  • Injecting odor neutralizers into carpets and upholstery using a pump and needle device 

Using these various techniques, our professionals can usually eradicate all the unpleasant, flood-related smells from your residence.

With all of that said, whenever you need any flood damage remediation, remember your helpful friends at SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties. We are always around and ready to help you with all of your cleanup and repair needs. Call us anytime at (865) 429-8885 for assistance.

What Should Sevierville Homeowners with Flood Damage in a Basement Do First?

SERVPRO Technicians Have Extensive Training and Experience Handling Storm Damage Cleanup in Sevierville Properties

A recent statistic shows that 98% of basements will have a water damage incident during their service life. Water can enter a Sevierville basement in a large number of ways. The most commonly seen reason is poor drainage around the home, directing the water towards rather than away from the property. The speed at which the cleanup begins can have a direct bearing on the outcome for the homeowner. 

SERVPRO offers these tips to Sevierville homeowners with flood damage in their basement: 

  • Do not enter a flooded area if the power is on; SERVPRO technicians can shut off the power upon arrival if necessary
  • Determine the water source such as a broken sump pump, flash flooding, or burst pipe in the basement ceiling
  • If there are items in the flooded area that are vital, inform the crew chief from SERVPRO upon arrival, and they can have a team member locate and remove the article

Floodwater Removal 

A basement with a non-functioning or absent sump pump will need assistance to remove the water. There is nowhere for it to recede on a concrete substrate. SERVPRO technicians have all types of water extraction equipment specifically adapted for the quick removal of standing water. We have electrical pumps with a high “lift” rate to extract the water to awaiting tanks or exterior drains. While a crew removes the water, another team removes items from the basement for drying and disinfection outside the work area. For example, items stored in boxes commonly need to air out and reduce the potential for mold growth. 

Drying the Basement

Setting up consumer-grade fans in a basement can take a long time to dry the walls and floors. SERVPRO brings professional centrifugal air movers and dehumidification equipment to capture embedded moisture and dry the basement rapidly. 

SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties at (865) 429-8885 restores homes with any size flood damage in the Sevierville area. 

How Crucial is Cleanup in Restoring Flood Damage in Sevierville Properties?

SERVPRO Performs Water Clean Up to Restore Visual Appeal and Eliminate Hazards

Looking through your Sevierville home after a flood damage incident, you may not realize the complexity of the cleaning processes necessary to restore the property to its preloss state. Removing gallons of pooling water and any chunks of debris from damaged materials only does part of the job.

You have to deal with visible and invisible soils after flood damage in your Sevierville home. The visible soils include mud and silt from outside the structure, dyes, rust, and other residues generated when materials inside the property deteriorate. Invisible soils are mostly contaminants such as biohazards or chemicals. SERVPRO restoration teams rely on physical approaches and the use of chemical agents to clean all affected areas of a home, eliminating the effects of flooding, “Like it never even happened.”

Cleaning as part of flood restoration may involve processes like:

  • Biohazard remediation
  • Sewage cleanup
  • Rodent clean up services

The difficulty level for any cleaning task depends on the type of affected material and, in some cases, the type of soiling. Removing soils from most nonporous surfaces or contents is easier since it is possible to use aggressive methods. For example, pressure washing or the use of detergents strips away mud from tiled surfaces. Porous materials require a gentler approach.

Removing the cocktail of residues deposited by flooding requires various chemicals, including:

  • Antimicrobials to stop or limit the growth of microorganisms
  • Disinfectants to destroy harmful materials
  • Deodorizers to eliminate any unpleasant odors

SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties provides the necessary resources to clean property effectively after flood damage. Call us at (865) 429-8885. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Advanced Extraction of Confined Spaces

Removing trapped water in the attic space can be a complex procedure for restoring flood damage in Gatlinburg homes.

Removing water from a confined space requires high-pressure pumps and attachments to reach challenging areas.

Efficient Drying Solutions for Damp Attics

Water removal is not enough to eliminate the possibilities of mold growth or structural degradation when moisture and damp pockets persist. With a solid floor in the attic space, one of the most efficient tools to help resolve trapped moisture in OSB board and plywood is floor drying mats. These can slowly draw out water until moisture levels are within acceptable and safe ranges. Additional drying equipment includes:

  • Air Movers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Portable Heaters

SERVPRO Responds within Hours to Save Gatlinburg Properties Affected by Flooding Incidents 

Gatlinburg is an attractive mountain resort city tucked away at the edge of Tennessee. Before the current occupation, the area was part of the pathways used by Native Americans during their hunting excursions. Today, the town provides a thrilling experience for visitors or residents who love spending time outdoors. Rafters and Kayakers, especially, can enjoy a great time in the Little Pigeon River with its exciting whitewater rapids. Some of the exciting things you may not know about the river include: 

  • It is one of the top rafted rivers in the entire country, although less known. In 2017 it was ranked third by the total number of visitors
  • The Little Pigeon and the Pigeon River are separate bodies of water that never meet despite sharing a name
  • Apart from tourism, the river powered the local economy in the early 1900s by driving the Old Mill gristmill, which provided the Pigeon Forge area's electricity.  

A Great Place to Learn About the Early Settlements in the Appalachians 

The Old Mill was of the many similar installations that littered the smoky mountains region in the 1800s. Apart from producing electricity, the technology was also crucial to the grinding of flour for pastries and other meals. Today, the Old Mill does not generate electricity but provides a perfect glimpse of life in the days gone of old. It features in the National Register of Historic Places, and among similar mills, it is one of the most photographed. There is a general store at the mill where visitors enjoy a wide range of homemade jellies, jams, and salad dressings, among other things. A visit to the mill provides a chance to learn how candy and pottery were once made by hand.  

Learning the crafts from yesteryears can also happen in a formal setting such as the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. The school serves anyone interested in arts such as woodturning, weaving, ceramics, paper-making, and painting, whether as a hobby or for other purposes. It is famous for its two-week, one-week, and weekend workshops. It is the oldest craft school in Tennessee, founded by the Pi Beta Phi women's fraternity of the early settlers in 1912. The move was prompted by reports of a lack of education and widespread poverty in the Southern Appalachian and the need to provide free education. Even in those early days, the school served as a place to learn informal aspects of life since the children in the area did not know most childhood games or even traditional Christmas celebrations, so the teachers had to fill in.

At the time of establishment, it was the only public school in the area. The situation improved in the early 1940s when Sevier County took control of public schools. Apart from teaching arts, records from teachers at school provide the only written account of everyday life in the area before the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was established, which radically changed the region's economy and culture.  

Present Day Attractions in Gatlinburg 

Apart from past era monuments, Gatlinburg has many modern attractions that spice up what the Great Smoky Mountains National Park offers. The park has continued to draw tons of visitors since it was established in 1934. Its establishment had to overcome many economic, political, and cultural obstacles because its land was obtained from individuals then amalgamated to form the park. Some people also had to be relocated from the area since one of the main driving forces for its creation was to save the Southern Appalachian from the threat posed by the logging boom.

Some of the alternate attractions include: 

  • The Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, which hosts at least 10,000 sea creatures. It is said that there are more fishes in the aquarium than the people living within the confines of Gatlinburg town. It is a great place to see various species, including sharks, turtles, and penguins, among many others.
  • Unique tours around the city, such as the Best Moonshine Distillery Tour and Tastings. The guided walking tour takes visitors to different local distilleries, tasting different flavors of the drink forbidden in the past when it was sold in secret. People also get to enjoy exciting stories about the history of the beverage during the tours.
  • The Gatlinburg SkyLift Park which provides a perfect view of the smoky mountains and the entire town. The SkyBridge is famous for being the longest pedestrian suspension bridge. With the area's hilly nature, this might be the best way to see the locale with minimal effort. 

How Long Does It Take SERVPRO to Respond To Flooding Incidents In Gatlinburg? 

The mountainous terrain in the area tends to force rainwater into narrow channels posing risks to nearby properties. The flood factor scorecard places over 17% of properties at extreme risk of flooding. SERVPRO helps reduce the effects of flooding in Gatlinburg by offering faster response and access to sophisticated mitigation resources. 

The best response to a flooding situation should start soon enough after the property is inundated to prevent secondary deterioration after the initial exposure to water. SERVPRO customer care staff are reachable 24 hours a day, so you can request assistance promptly after noticing flooding in your property. When called to a property, we take several steps, including: 

  • Sending a team to the site within four hours after receiving the call. Our techs are equipped with state of the art water extractors and moisture management equipment to counter the loss.
  • Securing the property on arrival by boarding up openings or setting up roof tarps
  • Moving items from flooding sections to unaffected areas within the property or an alternative location.
  • Spraying EPA registered disinfectants directly into the floodwater to minimize the risk posed by pathogens.

Does Storm Flooding Restoration Take More Time Than Other Kinds of Flooding?

Gatlinburg flood damage restoration after a storm has additional steps due to the outside water. Primarily, SERVPRO restoration team specialists deal with the contaminants (soil, pesticides, garbage, etc.) that are not present when the water spills from a cracked inlet pipe or a failed water heater.

Where Do Your Specialists Begin?

Demolition and Removal - The outside water deposits too many contaminants on carpets for us to guarantee they are safe to use after cleaning. After removing the floodwater, team members pull up and dispose of the carpeting and padding underneath. In addition to carpets, the contaminants can also quickly stain or otherwise ruin floor trim, and drywall panels. The list for immediate disposal can also include ceiling tiles if the storm flooding entered through a storm-damaged roof or wall.

Cleaning The Floors – If left standing long enough, contaminants can cause further damage to wood floors and linoleum. Specialists use cleaning agents designed to clean each type of flooring without splitting floorboards or causing the vinyl to lift and separate from the glue holding it in place, allowing air or water bubbles to form in the gaps.

What Else Does the Response Team Do for My Home?

SERVPRO team members also examine each residence for any lingering odors left by the contaminated floodwater. While removing the damaged items reduces the number of odors, it does not eliminate them. Specialists use industrial-strength cleaners and anti-bacterial agents to break down the particles which cause odors. If the particles penetrate deeply into the wood, they can use a fogger device to create a cloud of deodorizing and cleaning particles that bind with and eliminate odor particles.

To schedule a service call with our restoration specialists, contact SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties today at (865) 429-8885. We are here to return your home to a clean, livable condition as swiftly as possible.

Who Can Remove Floodwaters From My Home?

8/28/2020 (Permalink)

Homes in flood water Flooding is no match for SERVPRO. We are equipped and ready at a moment's notice to restore your home.

SERVPRO Is Ready 24/7 To Help You Dry Your Home.

Dirty floodwater requires a swift response to avoid further damages. If your Gatlinburg home has flooded, you need trained experts who can quickly remove water and dry out your home. 

How Does SERVPRO Remove floodwater?

Once our team of technicians arrive at your home, we can deploy our three tools for removing water:

Truck-mounted extractors: When a large quantity of water is present in your home, we can use truck-mounted extractors to vacuum water from your floors.

Portable Extractors: Our technicians use these extractors to reach restricted areas in your house that the truck-mounted extractors cannot reach. 

Pumps: When there are more than two inches of flooding in your home, submersible pumps can be used to extract the water. 

What If Water Gets Inside My Walls?

SERVPRO technicians can inspect your walls with thermal cameras and moisture meters to check for floodwater. If water is found, we can begin ventilating your walls by drilling holes and forcing dry air inside with specialty drying equipment. 

Will My House Smell Because of Flooding?

Flood water consists of unclean Category 3 black water. Blackwater is unsanitary and can leave an unpleasant smell. While the worst odors will be removed with the floodwaters, residual odors can remain even after drying. We use several methods to neutralize these odors:

Injecting deodorant into affected spots 

Directly spraying disinfectants onto affected surfaces

Wet Fogging your house with deodorizers 

Using air scrubbers to capture odors and chemicals from the air. 

While deodorizing, we can apply disinfectants to help mitigate dangers from bacteria and viruses. Rest assured, we will do our best to make sure your home is sanitary.

If you are the victim of flooding, then call SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties at (865) 429-8885, and we will get you on your way to feeling "Like it never even happened."

How Do I Get This Floodwater Out of My Home?

6/10/2020 (Permalink)

home/flood Homeowners have to deal with many things which may include water damage. Contact SERVPRO right away.

Call SERVPRO to Quickly Remove Water and Return Your Sevierville Home to its Original Condition

Spring rains have already given way to Summer thunderstorms with more on the way. Residents know that the speed of the storm can lift and damage roofs, knock down trees, and cause more damage, which is often as, or more, costly than the floodwater, which enters Sevierville area homes to cause problems throughout the structure.  

How Much is Removal going to Cost?

After a storm, flood damage to Sevierville homes can be extensive and expensive. At SERVPRO, we take every effort to return your home to a safe condition, ready for reoccupation as quickly as possible. Our water restoration teams also make every effort to work with your insurance agent to make sure the cost is as little as possible to you. 

Our first action is to get the floodwater out of your home as quickly as possible, using pumps and other extraction devices. Once accomplished, team members remove any soil and other items that came in with the flood. As they complete this task, one of our inspectors checks for personal and structural property too damaged for restoration and has it removed as well.  

No Water is Great, But what about My Damaged Roof?

Since we do not want further rain or floodwater to get inside, our teams covered damaged roofs, walls, windows, and doors with plywood. This helps keep out water and also reduces the threat from other problems such as animal intrusions, trespassing, and vandalism. 

Can SERVPRO rebuild my Home?

Yes. SERVPRO has trained builders on its team. Our specialists can lay new flooring, hang new drywall, replace wall framing, and even rebuild damaged support structure where needed. If the job requires major reconstruction, the team leader does recommend using a licensed contractor, however. 

For more information on how we can support you and your home, call SERVPRO of Seiver, Jefferson & Cocke Counties today at (865) 429-8885. We are here for you.

You Can Get Specialist Flood Damage Cleanup in Sevierville From SERVPRO

Floods are unpredictable and uncontrollable. Flooding can cause varying degrees of destruction to walls, floors, soft furnishings, furniture, and the building materials of your home within a short time, depending on its severity. After your Sevierville home floods, it is crucial to hire professionals who can assess it and remove and dry all items water has affected. This can prevent further structural destruction and limit the chance of mold developing.

What does SERVPRO’s emergency flood damage cleaning service involve?

Our team understands the importance of dealing with flood damage in affected Sevierville homes, and we offer a proficient and fast clean up solution. Our trained crew can remove debris, clean, and dry your home quickly and efficiently to minimize the disruption flooding causes and the health risks linked with hazardous floodwater. Some reasons to call us include:

  •     We offer our services on a 24-hour, 7-day basis.
  •     We can deal with highly sensitive situations.
  •     We guarantee a rapid response time.
  •     We are compliant with current health and safety guidelines, legislation and guarantee safe and legal disposal of hazardous materials.

How do you remove the debris? 

After a flood, cleaning up the debris and mud in Sevierville is a challenging and tiresome job. Floodwater can carry materials of all sorts of shapes and sizes, and dump them in unexpected locations. It may bring paper waste, food wrappers, sewage water, stones, broken items, and damaged possessions, among others.

The unexpected locations where debris settles makes it hard to clean and remove. For instance, if a huge stone gets inside a building, that can take a lot of time and work to remove and contain the damage. We have different material handling tools, rakes, power washers, and spades that come in handy when removing debris.

How do you remove the floodwater? 

Restoring a flood-damaged home is a valuable service for both the property owner and the insurance industry. Water removal is among our most essential services. We have the training, specialized equipment, and expertise to dry and restore flood-damaged structures properly.

SERVPRO uses the best water removal techniques. We can use trash pumps that can remove water that is mixed with sludge and twigs without the risk of damaging your property. Our team consists of dedicated and skilled workers who have compassion following a disaster.

Why is it essential to sanitize a home after flood damage?

Floodwaters pass anywhere and carry whatever crosses their way, including hazardous chemicals. When a flood occurs, everything is vulnerable to its destructive power. This includes companies that produce chemicals. The floodwater can get mixed up with chemicals, some poisonous and take them, to wherever it’s heading. Floodwater may also contain bacteria, fungi, and viruses. That is the reason why sanitation of a residence is a necessity after a flooding incident.

SERVPRO provides a unique and intensive range of specialist disinfection services to deal with potentially harmful situations in a discrete, safe, and legally compliant way. We can professionally attend to locations that potentially hazardous materials are present to eradicate all sources of contamination safely and quickly. 

Our team can use powered sprayers or hand pump-up sprayers to spray antimicrobials or disinfectants directly on the surfaces we are treating. They can dispense the products at about 50 pounds per square inch (PSI). 

How do I file a claim with my insurance company?

Insurance companies encourage homeowners to try to minimize the damage to their homes. We recommend that you call SERVPRO to start flood damage mitigation immediately to reduce the damage and restoration costs. You also need to call your insurance company to inform it that your home is flooded and you want to make a claim. It is essential to keep a record of the times and dates you called your insurance firm. 

Generally, insurance policies offer different levels of coverage. Go through your insurance documents to determine what is covered and what is not. You might be able to get:

  •     A replacement of flood-damaged items
  •     Professional assistance to clean up your house
  •     Temporary alternative accommodation if it is necessary to move out when restorers are cleaning up and drying your home. 

Your insurer can send a loss adjuster to your home to assess the damage. The adjuster may not get to your house immediately if the flooding in your area is severe. When you call the insurance firm, you need to find out the following:

  •     When the adjuster can come to survey the destruction.
  •     When your insurer organizes and pays for cleanup and redecoration of your house.

It is vital to document all the damage so that you can show it to the insurance firm. Our SERVPRO team can assist you in documenting the flood damage by 

  •     Taking photos or videos of the flood damage
  •     Using a permanent ink pen to mark the highest level that flood water reached the walls of affected rooms. 
  •     We can list the damaged items in each room. As we inventory, we can use our Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) to classify the contents as either salvageable, questionable, or non-salvageable items. 

Keeping a record of your claim is vital. You can keep details of the calls you made to your insurance firm and the team restoring your house. Also, keep copies of letters and emails you send or receive. This will be helpful when you speak to your insurer about your claim.

SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties is ready to serve you anytime you need us. Contact us today at (865) 429-8885 to restore your flooded home.

What are Phenolics and How are They Used for Flood Damage Restoration in Sevierville?

3/18/2020 (Permalink)

Flooded road; high water sign, road closed sign Did you know floodwaters contain harmful bacteria? We have the protective gear and equipment to safely restore you home.

Flood Damage Restoration in Sevierville Often Requires the Use Of Phenolics

After a brutal rainstorm in Sevierville, you could find your roof leaking or water entering your home from one of your lower door seals. During both of these situations, the moisture coming into your house can cause extensive flood damage. Any time H2O from the outside enters your structure; there is always a chance that it could be contaminated.

As a part of flood damage restoration in Sevierville, our SERVPRO technicians take measures to prevent harmful bacteria, parasites, and fungi from entering your home and contaminating your contents and building materials. When materials in your structure get wet, the water could have brought in harmful microorganisms or fungal spores with it. Mold spores naturally exist in the outdoors, but when they get inside your house, they can start to grow and form structures called hyphae.

Whenever dealing with moisture-related issues caused by floodwater coming in from the outside, our SERVPRO team uses specialized products to disinfect potentially contaminated items. Among the many types of disinfectants available, only some can kill a broad spectrum of bacteria and viruses that could enter after a rainstorm. Chemicals that use phenolics as their main ingredient can be useful to eliminate several different kinds of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

In the past, phenol disinfectants, derived from cool tar, gave off an unpleasant aroma. Nowadays, phenolics are made synthetically with improved odor-counteracting properties. Phenolics best function at a pH level between six and seven. Phenolics are not compatible with nonionic or cationic detergents; they need mixing with anionic detergents or soap.

A well-formulated phenolic compound can work well when fighting against mold and the spores it generates. A chemical product our SERVPRO team commonly uses to prevent mold from forming when moisture comes into your structure from the outside is Sporicidin. This product can be applied to the affected surfaces in your house by using a pump sprayer.

If you ever notice that your building materials and contents got wet after a thunderstorm, call SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson, and Cocke Counties at (865) 429-8885 24/7. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

SERVPRO Tackles Flood Damage in a Sevierville Home Gym

Flood damage can be catastrophic in scale, even if the depth of the water is shallow. All it takes is two inches of flooding to cost tens of thousands in damages to any structure. On top of that, floodwaters bring in contaminants from other areas that can cause health effects without thorough and professional removal with commercial-grade materials.

If your Sevierville home requires flood damage cleanup, Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification IICRC-certified professionals from SERVPRO are only a phone call away. We can provide service that strives to restore your home to a pre-flooding condition. Technicians are available any time of the day or night, including on weekends and holidays, to ensure that homeowners affected by disaster get the service they need whenever they need it. After all, emergencies do not occur on a typical 9-to-5 schedule.

Flood Resistance & Resilience

When floodproofing your possessions and structure, keep in mind two categories of flood protection: flood resistance and resilience. 

Resistance is the descriptor used to categorize methods of preventing water from penetrating buildings. This can include removable barriers on doors and windows, temporary seals on doorways, one-way valves on drainage pipes or toilets to prevent sewage backups, and sump pump systems.

Flood resilience, on the other hand, categorizes methods that ensure minimal water damage if water does penetrate your structure. This can include tactics like installing ceramic or stone tile instead of laminate or wood flooring, moving electrical sockets so that they are higher than 5 feet tall, using stainless steel or solid wood kitchens instead of chipboard, or replacing wooden window frames with UPVC. 

How SERVPRO Saves the Day

When SERVPRO technicians come to your home, they can focus on removing unsalvageable materials and preparing structures and possessions that can be salvaged for drying and restoration. 

If you have a home gym, for example, the carpet in the room may not be salvageable, but there is a good chance that your weights and nonporous exercise equipment can be cleaned and repaired. Electronic items like treadmills or recumbent bikes can also be restored, depending on their moisture exposure. SERVPRO  technicians can coordinate with professional electronics restorers to minimize damage and ensure that electronic appliances and components can be used, whenever possible, after flooding has occurred.

SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties wants to make sure your home looks, "Like it never even happened." Call (865) 429-8885 for disaster cleanup that can start within hours of initial contact.

Hazards from Flood Damage Sweeping through Your Gatlinburg Neighborhood Needs Efficient Cleaning

Mucking through your Gatlinburg residence after a flood can be a dangerous and disappointing activity. A mixture of silt, mud, debris, and broken pieces of glass can cause injury. Unseen contamination also exists. SERVPRO's specialists understand these dangers and the best ways to eliminate them, protecting your family and your property from continued risk and damage.

The uneven landscape that makes our area so beautiful also puts residences in Gatlinburg at high risk for flood damage. The torrential speeds that carry water from higher elevations to lower sections of our city cause that water to dig deeply into looser soils, loading it with a variety of substances, then pushing it into the homes within its path. Once inside, the water can force its way underneath cabinetry, inside furniture, and into walls, closets, and stairwells.

Because we're a locally owned and operated business, our diverse team of specialists can respond almost immediately to any calls regarding flood damage. When we hear about flooding in the area, we begin preparing those last-minute preparations, saving time, and making us even faster. One thing we never forget to bring is our personal protective equipment or PPE.

Before we start doing anything, we use a strong but people-friendly disinfectant to make exposed surfaces safer for us to handle during our work. We use this again later after we finish cleaning everything up for you, to ensure that your family's risk of related health effects dips to normal.

For removing soils dumped into your home, we need buckets, shovels, and gloves, and boots for each team member. After we remove the majority of these deposits, we bag up any solid debris remaining. We use double bags for this, so we bring a large roll of them with us.

Floors can remain covered in silt that we need squeegees and a hose to rinse off with clean water. Part of the debris we removed earlier might contain pieces of flooring that disintegrated as part of the house's flood damage. What we leave behind, however, is clean enough for our building services team to start taking measurements for new flooring.

Wiping down surfaces, including walls, lower portions of furniture, stairwells, and other places, let us see where water might remain trapped. We use our InjectiDry system for these, to extract water through the adaptor. The purpose of this system is to force warmed air into such places and speed up evaporation and subsequent drying. Other machines include our powerful desiccant machines and dehumidifiers.

Because flood damage increases the number of microbes inside your home, we also use air scrubbers. Often, these makeup part of a negative air chamber, where we can work on a specific section of your home. It can also work to make it possible to dry out anything inside more efficiently.

SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties can partner with you to restore your Pigeon Forge or Jefferson City home after food damage displaces your family. Call us at (865) 429-8885 for fastest service.
