Commercial Disaster Response: Roof Leaks

5/24/2022 (Permalink)

Water on Roof top SERVPRO of Midtown Memphis

If you've ever been unfortunate enough to have a roof leak, you know how frustrating it can be. A roof leak can cause storm-related damage and damage to the property, but it also causes major issues with water buildup. Of course, if your roof is leaking due to an issue like heavy rain or ice accumulation, then your commercial buildings will likely collect this excess water in the form of puddles on the ground below. However, when you have a roof leak, the water will spill over the roof's edge and begin to pool beneath your commercial buildings. Usually, this means that there is too much water pressure within the structure, causing damage.

Here are some common causes of roof leaks that can lead to catastrophic water damage in your commercial buildings:

1. Leaky Gutters

Gutters are an important part of any roof system. They are designed to direct rainwater off the roof and into a gutter system. It is very common for gutters in commercial buildings to become damaged because of heavy rain. Due to heavy rain, a layer of leaves builds up on top of the gutter, and eventually, this accumulates into large clumps. To have your gutters properly cleaned out, it is best to have them inspected either by an experienced roofer or a professional roof cleaner. This will allow the gutters to be cleaned and maintained regularly not to accumulate debris that can damage them.

2. Unvented Chimneys

Several forces can damage a chimney, but even with regular cleaning and maintenance, a chimney can eventually fail. It is very common for chimney caps to develop cracks or holes due to corrosion. This can lead to water pooling inside the structure, which leads to leaks and damages caused by water. Once a chimney is damaged, the structure will need to be replaced.


3. Decaying Roofing

There are different types of roofing material for different weather conditions. Some types of roofing are more durable than others, and some types of weather may cause the material to deteriorate more quickly than others. Regardless of which type of roofing you have, it is very common to develop small cracks or leaks in the form of downed shingles or rotted areas in your building's roof. If you look at the condition of your roof during heavy rain or after the rain has stopped, you may notice that the shingles are bent and torn, or some areas appear to be older than other areas of your roof. This usually means that roofing is leaking and is causing damage to your commercial building.


4. Corroded Pipes

Pipes are very important to every structure to have running water and drainage. However, pipes can develop leaks over time due to corrosion and neglect by the property owner. One of the biggest leaks within a pipe system is from corroded faucets in sinks or showers. When pipes are corroded, they may become damaged and begin leaking contaminants through them.

Why Mold Damage Calls for Expert Intervention in Midtown Memphis

SERVPRO Offers Skilled Mold Damage Remediation in Midtown Memphis

Mold infestation can be a significant problem in any business or home in Farmington with plumbing issues, failed attempts at water removals, or a leaking roof from storms. Once you suspect black mold or mildew developing within any area of your property, you must get in touch with mold remediation professionals to begin assessment and cleanup. With SERVPRO in your corner, we get in fast to determine the problem so that we can restore your property “Like it never even happened.”

Why is hiring professionals best when handling mold damage in Midtown Memphis. There are many reasons, with one central point being that DIY methods alone will not work or worsen the problem. Things to keep in mind when wondering whether or not to call in the pros for mold problems:

  • Mold is everywhere, and it only takes moisture, the right temperature, and an organic food source to thrive and colonize.
  • Mold remediation is a must because it can damage your belongings, building materials, and structural elements.
  • Mold can cause health effects, which means you need a company trained to handle it with care and precision using best practices for mold cleanup

We want our area customers to know that any company offering total mold removal should be avoided. Microscopic mold spores are everywhere, and there are also countless types of mold. While you can get surfaces clean and remove colonies, it is impossible to rid any environment of mold completely. It would be wise if you had a team like us in your corner that understands the best and safest ways to restore relative humidity, address the root cause of the mold infestation, and ensure all surfaces and contents get the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned seal of approval.

Proven Processes to the Rescue

With each call we get for a homeowner or business owner that suspects mold growth; we bring a full arsenal of advanced instruments, EPA-registered antimicrobials, cleaning agents, and proven procedures. We work to determine and monitor moisture levels throughout the air, surfaces, and each sub-surface. Based on our findings, we work on a mold remediation plan that involves drying and careful extrication of moisture and mold contamination. There are some standard steps we follow for all mold cleanup projects:

  • We complete a comprehensive assessment of mold infiltration, contain spores, and inhibit them from growing in uncontaminated areas of your Midtown Memphis  property. 
  • Humidity control helps us battle the root cause to halt mold growth. This may involve using water extraction tools with drying and dehumidification equipment.  
  • We then work to apply disinfectants and antimicrobials to thwart future mold growth and eliminate any chance of musty odors lingering.

In a previous blog post we discussed the fact that making your emergency “Like it never even happened,” is most often a two-step process.  First there is the clean-up/mitigation of the damage done by the water, fire, smoke, mold, or other disaster.  And while our primary goal is to save as much of the structure and contents as we can during the mitigation process, very often we must remove or displace some things so that we can properly mitigate the damage.  For example, sometimes cabinets need to be  removed, in order to get air circulating behind them, so that proper drying can take place. 

This leads to the second step in the process which is the rebuild process.  In this process we put things back in their proper place and replace things that could not be saved like drywall, carpeting etc…In our previous example, the cabinets would be put back in place during the rebuild process. 

Not all restoration companies are able to rebuild after a disaster.  With some restoration companies the customer needs to find a second company to do the rebuild work.  At SERVPRO of Appleton however, we have two full-time carpenters on staff, as well as a host of excellent subcontractors to handle all the customer’s rebuild needs.  While each of these steps is a separate service and billed independently, it is helpful for the customer to have one contractor managing the process and dealing with the customer’s insurance company.

This also means that we are more than just a restoration company.  Our rebuild team would be happy to give you a quote for any of your home remodeling projects.  You need not have an emergency to call SERVPRO of Midtown Memphis  Call our office today at 901-454-4975 for more information. 

It’s Hurricane Season – Take Steps to Prevent Water Damage

9/7/2021 (Permalink)

Rain on ceiling SERVPRO of Midtown Memphis

Hurricane rainfall presents opportunity for water damage to your property. Leaks and floods can cause damage to your property and require that you temporarily move out of your building while it’s restored. This presents a challenge as you want to get back to business as usual as soon as possible! Furthermore, severe leaks can lead to floods which can increase your risk of exposure to mold, chemical injuries and more.

Fortunately, these inconveniences are preventable! Whether your water emergency occurs in an office building or big box store, it is imperative that you take measures to prevent leaks and damage to your property. Keep a look out for the following:

Damaged Windows

Water can seep through windows that aren’t properly sealed. This can cause mold build-up and damage to walls. Because caulk, the material that’s often used to seal windows, breaks down over time, be sure to have your windows resealed regularly.

Broken Pipes

Changes in pressure throughout the year and cold weather can cause pipes to break and burst. Although there are some tell-tell signs of this issue, such as water stains on walls or floors or an unpleasant and musty smell, detecting leaky pipes is challenging. With that said, it’s best to consult a professional to help determine whether your property has broken pipes.

HVAC Problems

Hurricane season often coincides with colder temperatures so we crank up the heat! However, ducts in the HVAC system can get worn out and damaged over time, especially during seasons like this, and cause leaks. For that reason, the system needs to be cleaned regularly and any water in it needs to be removed. Like broken pipes, it’s sometimes difficult to determine whether your HVAC system is causing a leak, so it’s best to consult a professional.

One of the best ways to get ahead is to create an Emergency Ready Profile . This is an immediate plan of action for how to restore your building after a disaster and get back to business. Additionally, we have 360 degree technology to document preloss conditions, including your equipment and where it was before disaster struck.

How Mold Grows

4/8/2021 (Permalink)

Mold with Servpro logo SERVPRO of Midtown Memphis

There are many mold scares in the United States because it can be a huge health issue, mold can destroy a house, and be very hard to get rid of. Mold can be an epidemic for some homeowners because their home is food for mold! The way mold spreads is through spores in the air, which does not always mean it will lead to a mold epidemic in your home. Mold can not grow on dry surfaces. The only way it can spread is with wet surfaces. A simple solution is to keep your home dry, and you won't have a mold problem. Although, it is not always that easy!

Tips to keep your home dry and the humidity low to avoid getting mold: 

  • Before taking a bath, shower, or cooking a meal on the stove, turn on your exhaust fan. This will suck up any moisture getting into the air.
  • After taking a bath or shower, leave your shower curtain open to air out the tub.
  • Make sure to dry any wet areas immediately!
  • Ventilate, ventilate, ventilate!
  • Open some windows if it starts getting humid and burps your house.
  • Monitor your humidity levels indoors.
  • Equip your home with mold-resistant products.
  • Clean and repair roof gutters and try to direct all water away from your home.

Who Cleans up Commercial Water Damage in Memphis?

9/10/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Midtown Memphis vehicles SERVPRO Midtown Memphis

The trained, certified team members of SERVPRO bring years of experience and advanced equipment to handle any size commercial water damage situation in Memphis.

When the aftermath of a plumbing issue, toilet backup, or other issue happens in your commercial property, you need to get going on the cleanup as soon as possible. The equipment that your regular janitorial crew uses to maintain your building may be inadequate for the type of cleanup and drying that the mitigation of water damage requires. Mainly when the issue is groundwater or a sewage backup into the property, repairs to the walls, floor, and replacement to some articles that absorbed the water can occur. It is crucial to use the services of a restoration service company that understands cleanup, sometimes also means prepping for repairs. 

What are Flood Cuts and Why Do Commercial Water Restoration Companies Rely on Them?

It may seem counterproductive to remove wet sheetrock rather than dry it, but this is a standard method used by commercial water restoration companies to lessen the damage from excessive moisture at your Memphis property. 

This process for flood cut is:

* The technicians locate the waterline within the sheetrock

* Measuring several inches over the waterline, the wet building materials get cut off. 

* This action opens up the interior wall cavity for drying.

* To repair, a replacement piece of sheetrock gets fitted into the space and sealed in place with joint compound. 

The clean cuts make any repairs needed after the fact simple. This attention to removing the least amount of building materials possible during the cleanup helps property owners keep the overall cost down for the restoration from water damage. 

SERVPRO of Midtown Memphis at 901-454-4975 servers the area with cleanup and remediation of damage from water, fire, mold or biohazzard issues in local properties. They remain the premier choice among commercial water restoration companies for any job size.

Water damage incidents can result in widespread damages around the affected Memphis property, depending on how much water spills or how long it takes to start the restoration process. Restoration teams view the damage from a unilateral position, such as the value of the affected items or the physical traits of such materials. The homeowner may have a different perspective on the loss. 

When addressing water damage incidents here in Memphis, SERVPRO crew chief's listen to the homeowner's concerns and record them, right from arrival and throughout the restoration process. In many cases, concerns center on:

*The affect on structure materials

* The fate of Personal Belongings 

* The time needed to complete restoration

* The cost of restoration 

Water can have adverse affect on structural supports such as frames or other installations as in floors and sub-floors, especially if traces of moisture are left unaddressed during the restoration. Our SERVPRO technicians check how far the water migration reaches immediately after arriving at the loss sight. We use both penetrative and non penetrative moisture meters allowing us to inspect any section of the property without causing additional water damage.

Our SERVPRO team technicians go the extra mile to ensure any highly valued items are salvageable where possible.
