April Showers Bring May Gutter Clogging!
As the warm front continues to push into the Nashville area, it has brought quite a bit of rain during this past week. The rain is supposed to let up come Friday and this weekend would be a great opportunity to take a look at those gutters!
Making sure that your gutters are cleaned out is one way to prevent a backup and to prevent water damage in and around your home! Cleaning out that dirt and debris from the past few months is a tedious but necessary task in order to keep your home safe from summer showers!
As much as SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson would love to help in any way, we know that no one WANTS that water damage.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
What Business Interruption?

Some industries never sleep. As a 24/7/365 emergency services company, SERVPRO is a member of one of those industries. The hospitality industry is another that never sleeps. This can make for difficult situations when a hotel becomes fully involved with water damage on the busiest travel week of the year with record high temperatures.
With a hotel space that had turned into an active construction zone without electricity, hundreds of guests had to be relocated to other area hotels. While SERVPRO of Northwest Davidson County was working hard to dry the structure as quickly as possible, the hotel staff was working diligently to relocate their guests.
In the midst of summer, it doesn't take long for a powerless building in Tennessee to become unbearably hot. Although the hotel was unable to accommodate any guests, we were able to bring in a commercial grade, trailer mounted air conditioning unit to allow hotel staff to continue working around the clock to make sure their guests were ultimately taken care of.
While the hotel did experience significant business interruption, their leadership was successful in making sure each and every guest was comfortable during their stay in Nashville. SERVPRO finds solutions to problems, because like us, the hospitality industry doesn't sleep so that their guests can.
Commercial Fire Damage, Nashville TN
On St. Patrick's Day, SERVPRO of Northwest Davidson County was called out to help mitigate fire and water damages in a distribution warehouse in Nashville TN.
Although this photo appears to be hazy, it is just a realistic aftermath of a major fire. There is no power and most components inside have melted.
To most, cleaning and restoring this damage seems like an insurmountable task. It could be the luck of the Irish, it could be that we always wear green, or it could be unmatched training and expertise that will allow us at SERVPRO of Northwest Davidson County to have them back up and running in no time.
