What Is A Proper Commercial Fire Sprinkler System For My Nashville Business

7/19/2021 (Permalink)

There is a lot to consider when you are in the process of deciding which commercial fire sprinkler system is best for your Nashville business location. Of course, the type of business you have will be a primary factor in determining the proper fit. Keeping both your operation and your employees safe is vital, of course, since a fire can be debilitating, dangerous, and costly. 

WHAT FACTORS SHOULD I CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING THE RIGHT FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEM FOR MY NASHVILLE ORGANIZATION? 

There are various sprinkler system types on the market, and the options available vary depending on the environment that the system will be covering. You will want to think about:

  • the size of your building(s)
  • the cost of the system itself
  • building restrictions and fire codes
  • the type of operation you run and its specific fire hazards
  • your protection preferences as the owner

WHAT TYPES OF COMMERCIAL FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEMS ARE THERE TO CHOOSE FROM FOR MY NASHVILLE BUSINESS? 

  • WET SYSTEMS:
    • Attach to a piping system that constantly fills 
    • Will automatically dispenses water when a fire is detected
    • Designed for environments that maintain a consistent temperature above 40 degrees Fahrenheit
    • Not ideal for protecting sensitive equipment 
    • Most recommended commercial fire sprinkler system
  • DRY SYSTEMS:
    • Filled with pressurized nitrogen or air rather than water 
    • Release air that permits the water pressure to open the dry pipe valve, causing the water to flow into the piping system and out of the sprinkler heads 
    • Designed for areas where freezing temperatures (below 40 degrees Fahrenheit) can be expected 
    • Most commonly installed in attics, loading docks, commercial freezers, etc. 
  • PRE-ACTION SYSTEMS:
    • Contain an electronically-operated valve that controls the water that goes into the piping system 
    • Similar to a dry system, except the sprinklers are closed  
    • Will not release water until heat activates the operating element in each sprinkler
    • Typically seen in facilities that house high-value equipment, such as hospitals, computer rooms, art museums, etc. 
  • DELUGE SYSTEMS:
    • Installed in the same areas as sprinklers but only opened by the operation of a detection system 
    • First ensures the valve is opened, and water is then released in all attached sprinklers 
    • Most commonly used where large quantities of water are required to control a fire quickly
    • Found in power plants, aircraft hangers, chemical storage, processing facilities, etc. 

SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson is here to help you get your Nashville commercial business fire safety systems in place. We can evaluate your premises and make recommendations specific to your location. Then, if your business suffers from fire damage, we can be onsite right away to begin the restoration process, saving you both time and money.

A Cleaning Checklist For Your Business

4/13/2021 (Permalink)

Keeping your business clean and your work environment pleasant and healthy may require a checklist, especially if the business is booming and you are busy from the time the doors open until work is done for the day. If you don’t have one, you may want to consider creating one - it can really help you streamline all the tasks you have to complete every day and throughout the year. 

Here are some pointers you can use when you create a cleaning checklist for your business:

DAILY

  • Clean and disinfect bathrooms, including mirrors, countertops, sinks, and both the inside and outside of toilets.

  • Clean and disinfect kitchen/food prep area, including sinks and countertops. 
  • Clean all glass, paying special attention to entrance doors and other areas that are high visibility. 



WEEKLY

  • Wipe down and disinfect work desks and machinery such as phones, keyboards, printers, and filing cabinets. This can be a weekly task if you feel your premises requires it or if your workforce feels it is necessary for their safety. 
  • Sweep and vacuum all offices. 
  • Dust window sills and baseboards. 
  • Dust artwork, framed certifications, etc. 
  • Clean out refrigerators and wash/disinfect microwaves.

Top Three Places To Check For Mold In Your Business

2/10/2021 (Permalink)

During Spring here in Middle Tennessee, we all expect heavy rainstorms and thunderstorms, as well as the occasional tornadoes. We also know that humid conditions will create the conditions that are just right for a colony of mold to establish itself in a commercial property. There are some areas that are most vulnerable to issues of this kind, and the top three places to check for mold in your business will be: 

Lavatories

With all the piping installed here to conduct water, this is an obvious place to begin your mold inspections. Every dark corner that can become damp without notice is going to be vulnerable, so make sure you are looking under and behind fixtures, cabinetry, and closets. If there is any tiling in this area, it will also be an area that can be attractive for mold spores. Using products that include bleach will help to keep tiling and countertops mold and mildew free. 

Storage/Warehouse

These areas of your business are also great places for a mold colony to get started. The items you store will often not be moved for long periods of time, and if you have a lot of cardboard and paper packaging, this can also be attractive to spores. Keeping things dry is important here; make sure to handle leaks and drips right away, with that in mind. 

Kitchens

Some businesses have kitchens for their employees, and if that is your situation, and if you have kitchen appliances, they will of course involve water. You’ll want to make regular inspections for mold and mildew a priority here, too. 

As you establish the top places to check for mold in your business, you will want to establish preventive measures that will help you avoid this issue:

  • Keep all workspaces well-ventilated and dry 
  • During the more humid months, a dehumidifier is a great option
  • Make sure exterior doors and windows are adequately sealed
  • When organizing stored items on shelves keep items away from floors and walls
  • Remove any standing water immediately and dry affected areas completely


If your home or business has developed a mold problem, SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson is standing by to help; we maintain all the training and expertise necessary to be your mold prevention and remediation experts. We are also experienced in the cleanup after water and fire damage. We can get your home or business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, as well. This franchise is independently owned and operated.

Keep Your Business Clean With SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson

1/5/2021 (Permalink)

While regular cleaning services may keep your premises looking good, this type of cleaning service isn’t effective when it comes to bigger problems such as health challenges, biohazards, or recovery from weather events. SERVPRO is equipped to handle cleanup projects of all kinds, whether it involves accidents, contaminations, chemical spills, or weather-related issues, such as mud, mold and mildew, debris, and more.  

Healthy Environment. A clean and sanitized workspace will keep your employees healthier during cold and flu seasons and this will benefit your business through increased productivity, while customers entering your business will appreciate your spotless environment as well. A deep cleaning will make your business look pristine but will enhance your health safety levels, too. A thorough cleaning of the shared spaces in your work environment will also be advantageous in preventing the spread of disease. Deep cleaning and disinfecting all shared areas, such as bathrooms, breakrooms, and training rooms, will decrease the possibility of workforce illness. During the previous year, we all learned a lot about preventive measures that can be taken to protect the health of everyone, and there is no reason why we can’t continue to use these measures going forward.

Air Quality. The air in your building could be contaminated with different particulates, which are circulated by the ventilation system. It is believed that dirty, polluted air minimizes human cognitive function; unhealthy indoor air can be harmful to employees and customers. Your ventilation systems and air ducts need to be cleaned regularly to keep them free of pathogens and other irritants. When any allergens, bacteria, dust, debris, mold, and dirt are removed from the air ducts, your HVAC system will also perform more efficiently, as well.

Weather. With the coldest months upon us, you can count on the SERVPRO team to help in the event of storm-related damage and mess. If a flood happens or if high winds leave you with debris that keeps you from doing business, give us a call and we can be there right away to get you back to work.   


Here at SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson, we are water damage and fire damage recovery pros, mold remediation and prevention experts, and we maintain all the skills and equipment necessary to be able to complete deep cleaning projects of all types. We can get your home or business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, too - ask us how!

First Steps After A Fire In Your Business

11/24/2020 (Permalink)

The clean up after a fire will take a lot of time, patience, and preparation and should be handled by industry experts. If your business experiences a fire of any size, you will want to ensure that your enterprise is properly protected through careful consideration and the work of well-equipped professionals. Below, we are sharing the first steps you will need to take after a fire in your business: 

  • Insurance. Before any clean-up is started you will need to contact your insurance company. You will need to gather information about what is covered, what needs to be repaired or replaced, and how to find reputable companies that can take care of repairs to your property for you during this time. A restoration company such as SERVPRO is equipped to work with your insurance representatives to ensure your business is taken care of correctly. 
  • Documents. Find and retrieve all important documents, and let a document recovery specialist handle anything that has been damaged beyond your ability to recover. 
  • Soot Damage. Movement around your premises should be limited to prevent soot particles from being stirred up and becoming embedded in the upholstery of your furniture and carpeting. Laying down tarps or plastic strips to walk on can help in this area. 
  • Filters/Appliances. Change your HVAC filters and any others you may have around the office, and if the power is out, empty the breakroom freezer/fridge. Get rid of any leftover food so that you aren’t dealing with the smell of it going bad, and prop the doors open to get rid of lingering smoke and its odors. Once the power comes back on, be sure to check wiring for ceiling fans and any plug-in lighting before turning them on as the wiring could have been damaged during the fire. 
  • Specialists. Washing walls or painted surfaces, or clean carpets, etc. should not be done without contacting a fire damage specialist; these will need to be properly cleaned by a professional before any repair is done. 


Here at SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson, we are always ready to help you in the event of fire damage to your business, and we have all the equipment and skill necessary to get you back to work right away. We are also experienced in the areas of water damage and mold prevention/remediation, too.

HVAC Maintenance For Your Apartment Complex

8/18/2020 (Permalink)

Engaging a professional HVAC company to do maintenance on your apartment complex HVAC systems at regular intervals throughout the year will ensure that all the heating and cooling units on your property are running as efficiently as possible. Inspection and cleaning of the wiring and mechanisms of all your HVAC units will be completed during a professional service call, and a professional will have the specialized training and experience necessary to do this type of job correctly. The comfort of all interiors and the energy efficiency of the buildings themselves are important to you as the owner, and your tenants, too. 

It’s important to ensure that the upkeep that is necessary to prolong the life and efficiency of all the HVAC units in your apartment complex gets done, and done right, and some tasks you can actually complete yourself monthly and seasonally in between your scheduled maintenance call from your professional. These tasks can be:

  • Make sure to use high-efficiency, pleated filters when you are replacing them. Filters of this type contain an electrostatic charge that works like a magnet to attract particles, such as dust or those that carry bacteria. Air filters need to be replaced in every unit, every 90 days
  • Ensure that your landscaping company doesn’t allow grass to shower on top of any exterior units on the grounds while they are cutting your lawn areas so that you can be sure that your HVAC units stay free of grass clippings as well as leaves and pollen
  • Keep at least two feet of space clear around all outdoor heating and cooling units
  • Inspect refrigerant lines monthly
  • In Summer, turn off the water to the furnace humidifier
  • Replace the humidifier filter and turn on the water ahead of the Fall season
  • Replace your carbon monoxide detector batteries regularly
  • Ensure outdoor AC units are on level, firm, and dry ground
  • Clean AC condensate drains with bleach/water mixture on a routine basis

Your professional maintenance company can check all your apartment complex ductwork periodically, too, and this will ensure that everything is sealed properly and ready for your scheduled tune-ups on your apartment complex HVAC systems.

Here at SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson, we make sure we maintain all the training and skill sets that are required for taking care of your HVAC system, and we also handle cleanup projects both large and small. We handle fire damage, water damage, and mold remediation, and we can get your home or business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned!

Deep Cleaning For Your Business

6/29/2020 (Permalink)

A deep clean will bring many benefits to your business, your employees, and your customers. While regular cleaning services may save you money, you may need something more. In the long run, you won’t regret hiring SERVPRO of Hermitage/ Donelson to make your business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

Your employees will be happier and healthier when they work in an environment that is free from dust and dirt. A fresh, clean workspace will keep your employees healthier and more productive the whole year round, while your customers will enjoy a spotless environment as well. A business owner that keeps their premises in top shape is considered to be conscientious in all their business endeavors. 

One deep cleaning project is the cleaning of ventilation systems; these are often the biggest contributor to poor indoor air quality. Many business owners fail to realize the importance of clean indoor air. Air may be contaminated with different types of particulates, which are then continuously circulated by the ventilation system, and polluted indoor air quality will often lead to a significant drop in worker productivity due to sickness. These ventilation systems and air ducts need to be cleaned regularly to keep them free of pathogens and other irritants. When any allergens, bacteria, dust, debris, mold, and dirt are removed from the air ducts, not only will it be easier and healthier to breathe, your HVAC system will also perform more efficiently. 

A thorough cleaning of your workplace environment is also advantageous because it will help prevent the spread of germs and other contaminants. Disinfecting shared areas, such as bathrooms, breakrooms, and training rooms, decrease the possibility of employee illness. It’s a good idea all year long and not just during flu season. 

Another aspect of deep cleans is carpet, walls, and hard floor cleaning. By wiping down walls and deep cleaning your floors, it will remove any dirt and make your business more presentable. 


For any and all commercial cleaning services, don’t hesitate to give us a call here at SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson. We are experts at all kinds of cleaning and we can get your business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

Why Your Business Should Have An ERP

5/19/2020 (Permalink)

An ERP, or Emergency Ready Plan, is a method of planning for emergencies before they even occur. Why should your business have an ERP? Your emergency strategy will be carefully devised to guide you and your employees when taking the decisive action necessary during a disaster of any size. The SERVPRO Ready Plan information will give you the security of emergency preparedness, and your plan information can be downloaded into our Ready Plan app to instantly share with SERVPRO so that the damage can be intercepted right away. 

Here are some things to consider while putting your ERP into place:

Planning Ahead

  • Talk with your employees to formulate as many disaster scenarios as they can come up with. One of the worst calamities in the US occurred in the 2010 Nashville flood here in Tennessee, when the city was deluged by almost 14 inches of rain within 36 hours - most of us remember that event very well. Studying such tragedies can help you more effectively project other possible disasters to better plan for them. 

Protecting Everyone

  • It is necessary to create an ERP that protects anyone in the building. The Department of Homeland Security refers to this as “Protective Actions for Life Safety,” and includes:
    • Fire Drills. Rehearsals for action during a fire.
    • Sheltering. Sheltering staff during a natural disaster.
    • Sheltering in Place. Sheltering staff during a man-made emergency.
    • Lockdown. Eluding an active shooter.

Incident Stabilization

  • Stabilizing an incident means preventing further damage on the scene. This can be accomplished by training your employees in various rescue procedures including:
    • First Aid and CPR
    • Proper Use of Fire Extinguishers

Evacuation Team

  • Without guidance during an evacuation, people will often panic. Consider adding an evacuation team to your ERP:
    • Assign point persons to guide evacuees out of the building.
    • Appoint helpers to assist persons with disabilities.
    • If an exit is blocked by a hazard such as a collapsed ceiling, make sure the evacuation team is trained to redirect employees to an alternate exit.

SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson is a reliable, professional provider of emergency cleaning and restoration services when you experience fire and water damage. SERVPRO can expertly help you devise an effective Emergency Readiness Plan for your business here in the Hermitage/Donelson area.

What To Expect From A Commercial Restoration Project

3/31/2020 (Permalink)

As a business owner, you already have a lot on your plate on any given day. You need to know who to call when something goes wrong or your business is damaged. Whether the damage your business is experiencing is from water, fire, or other weather-related issues, you need a company with the expertise and availability to assist you quickly after a disaster. 

Here are some things to look for when seeking a Commercial Restoration Company.

  • Efficiency.

Lost time is lost money. When looking for a company to help you restore your business, you need a team that understands how important and necessary it is to get your business back up and running as quickly as possible.

  • Availability.

When in the midst of a disaster, you need to be able to pick up the phone and have immediate assistance from a team of highly trained professionals. It is important to pick a company that is available 24/7 for emergencies and near your business. 

  • Communication. 

In times of stress, you need people who can talk you through it and communicate a plan, not add to it. When seeking Commercial Restoration, make sure you find someone that is ready to communicate a plan, a time frame, and peace of mind.

HVAC Maintenance For Your Commercial Property

2/4/2020 (Permalink)

As a commercial property manager or owner, it is important to maintain your property and keep it in the best condition during all seasons. Maintaining your HVAC system can help avoid costly damages and extend the life of your equipment. Here are a few helpful tips in order to assure your equipment stays intact.

  • Perform inspections regularly. 

It is important to regularly inform inspections on your HVAC system. This prevents any surprise damage and allows you to be more prepared for expenses that may come up due to necessary maintenance.

  • Replace air filters.

Replacing the air filters when needed will assure that your equipment is functioning at its best. Keeping the air filters clean in your HVAC system is an essential element of maintenance. Dirty filters can restrict airflow and slow your system. If the air in your HVAC is flowing properly, it will reduce strain and allow it to function more efficiently. 

  • Monitor your thermostats. 

If your thermostat isn’t set to a consistent temperature and is changed regularly, it can cause your system to work too hard and struggle to keep up with the switch from heating to cooling. Monitoring your thermostat can help to keep your system from developing more wear and stress.

  • Repair any minor issues as they come up.

Although the major issues should be left to professionals, repairing damages such as leaks and air ducts should be a consistent part of maintenance. It is important to assure that smaller issues don’t get left alone for too long, causing them to become costly damages and more work.

These are just a few tips to keep your system running smoothly. If you come across any large damage within your HVAC system or would prefer assistance in any of these areas, our team of highly trained professionals at SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson is always happy to help! Reach out to us at (615) 885-3906, or get assistance online!

Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Business

2/4/2020 (Permalink)

Throughout the year, it is common for your business to get cluttered and dirty. Spring cleaning isn’t only for your home or vehicles, it is also essential to spring clean your business. It is important to ensure your business is in the best shape in the Spring, and every season. SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson is here to give you and your business a few cleaning tips to get you started this Spring!

Move All Furniture. Move out all furniture and items that could get in the way of vacuuming, scrubbing, and carpet cleaning.   

Clean the floors in all areas of your business. Vacuuming, sweeping, and carpet cleaning are all important steps to restoring your business to a clean and healthy environment.

Sanitize all items. Make sure all computers, desks, and appliances are properly sanitized and cleaned. This can prevent germs and illness from spreading to employees and around the business. 

Wipe down all surfaces. This goes hand-in-hand with sanitizing. Surfaces usually forgotten when doing daily cleaning procedures like doorknobs, mop handles, and brooms should all be wiped down.

Clean all restroom surfaces. Urinals, countertop, sinks, restroom walls, and floors should be sanitized and thoroughly cleaned. It could also be useful to redo the caulk around the toilets and sinks.

Dust all fixtures, vents, and furniture. Getting to the areas that aren’t normally dusted is part of the deep spring cleaning process. The dust in these areas can build up over time and be unhealthy for your business. 

We know deep cleaning can be a lot on top of your already busy schedule running a business. If you would prefer assistance in cleaning this spring or any time, contact our team of highly trained professionals here at SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson. Please feel free to contact us at (615) 885-3906, or get assistance on our website.
