GNAA Trade Show 2017
We were thrilled to be a part of another great trade show with the Greater Nashville Apartment Association. We even got our owner, Bob Jacobs, out in some spirited clothing. The theme was "Red, White, and Blue." As you can see by the photo, we take our themes seriously, but still want to be ready for whatever happens. Like a modern day Clark Kent, Bob could easily rid himself of his red, white and blue disguise to respond to a property related emergency.
We love any opportunity to get out for a night of fun with friends, customers, and industry partners. Even if it means we are wearing weird suspenders! See you next year at the GNAA Trade Show.

We are available 24/7/365 with state of the art equipment and top industry training to handle whatever issue you might be facing in your home or business. Need a ceiling tile replaced?

We Stand With The Nashville Predators
As the rest of the country seems to have fallen in love with our likable underdogs, we decided it was fitting to formally announce that SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson stands with the Nashville Predators. Their historic run for the Stanley Cup has not only brought much deserved attention to Nashville's hockey team, but it has also solidified Nashville as one of the greatest sports atmospheres in the country. We are proud to say that our office is just a short two and a half miles away from Bridgestone Arena, the home of the Predators. As you are cheering on the Preds in these Stanley Cup Finals, remember as the Predators are cleaning up around the net, SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson is here to clean up around your home after your celebrations.
Fire Damage Didn't 'Soot' These Walls
Production Manager Mike Knight test cleaning an area of damaged wall.
Get it? Here at SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson, we enjoy terrible puns almost as much as we enjoy serving our community.
Following a damaging fire, all of the concrete block walls in this apartment were covered in a thick layer of black soot. We don't feel soot and fire damage suits any dwelling, so we decided to remove it.
In this photo, you can see the stark difference between the cleaned area and the remaining affected areas. With the right chemicals, meticulous cleaning methods, and a little bit of elbow grease, we were able to get this seemingly destroyed structure back to habitable conditions within just a few days.
Mold Cleanup in Nashville
This relatively new construction in a Nashville suburb essentially had its own ecosystem beneath the house. This was caused by a crawlspace that was improperly ventilated. This image shows what the damage looked like prior to remediation. Check out our section of before and after photos to see how it looked at SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson was finished. This crawlspace required a drying treatment, followed by an extensive remediation. After that, we replaced the vapor barrier and fully encapsulated the crawlspace. This prevents outside moisture, or ground moisture, from building up and creating a problem like the one in this image.
Two Can Be Better Than One
As we head into Thanksgiving, many of us plan to carry on with centuries old traditions of indulging in excessive consumption of food and beverages. While these SERVPRO koozies can help keep two drinks cold during this holiday season, they are a reminder of other times that two can be better than one.
In this case, it reminds us that SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson has a sister franchise known as SERVPRO of Northwest Davidson County. These two are definitely better than one. Twice the resources, twice the manpower, twice the expertise. These are all qualities that are to be desired when dealing with fire, water, or mold damage. We are proud to serve the Greater Nashville area. Happy Thanksgiving.
Creativity Saves Money
At this flooded office building in Nashville, creativity saved money. Instead of removing large portions of drywall to dry a saturated wall cavity above the ventilation, our crew chief Darren decided to get creative with his drying strategy.
Little Time, Lots of Damage
Here is an example of how little time it takes for water to cause A LOT of damage. This home in Nashville, TN was fine when the homeowner left for work at 7:45 in the morning. She came home for lunch to find her ceiling collapsed in three rooms, and a waterfall from upstairs landing in inches of water downstairs. It was the result of a ruptured toilet supply line in an upstairs bathroom. This damage was caused in less than four hours.
Now that it is fall and our temperatures are starting to drop, be mindful of preventative measures to keep your pipes from freezing this winter. Although this particular damage was not caused by a frozen pipe the end result is very similar and just as detrimental.
