Didn't Your Mother Ever Tell You To...Clean Your Gutters!
Cleaning your gutters will also give you a great opportunity to retrieve that Football/Baseball/Frisbee you thought you lost forever!
Fall is here and that means Winter is around the corner. Maybe you forgot, but there are many projects around the home demanding your attention to prepare for the impending snow and ice. A task that often goes overlooked is having the gutters cleaned. Gutter cleaning is an integral part of maintaining your home. As a working or busy homeowner, I know gutter cleaning is probably at the bottom of your list of things you want to think about.
The problem is, many homeowners wait to get their gutters cleaned until they notice a problem. Usually, the problem is that too much debris has collected in the gutter and has started to tear away from the roof. Unfortunately, this is like waiting to lower your cholesterol until you have a heart attack.
Clogged gutters can wreak havoc with the natural drainage of water away from your home. This can result in damage to fascia, soffit, roofing, or even begin leaking into your home. Additionally, water damage can ruin the very foundation of your home – something you NEVER want to happen.
Some of the many benefits of gutter cleaning include:
- prevent water damage to your home EVERY season
- avoid nesting areas for termites, birds, mosquitoes, and other insects
- prevent destruction of expensive landscaping
- maintain value and beauty of your home
My advice, make sure to schedule your gutter cleaning in the spring and fall each year. Many companies even have an annual program you can sign up for so you never have to think about cleaning your gutters again, and your home will be protected for years to come.
For your Carpet Cleaning needs, try SERVPRO of Wilson/Nashville
Our technician, Josh is using our Portable Extractor and an Extracting Wand to perform this carpet cleaning.
As many already know, we are highly skilled and trained professionals when it comes to Mitigating and Restoring your Fire or Water damaged homes or business. Our company also performs Mold Remediation, Sewage & Bio-hazard clean-ups. However, there are other less-invasive services we can provide to Residents and Commercial Building Owners.
As pictured, one of our technicians is performing a Carpet Cleaning for a Nash County Government Building in Nashville. We have 6 different Carpet Cleaning options and also provide Drapery & Upholstery Cleaning Services.
At the time of service, if you have not already obtained a Carpet Cleaning Estimate, then our Technicians will provide you with an estimated cost based on how large of an area is being cleaned and if there are any existing damages to the carpet (smoke, pets, etc.).
Once authorized by the Customer to begin services, the technicians will begin preparing the work area. Furniture will be moved and a Pre-spray solution will be plaited ("raked") into the carpet to begin breaking down food and dirt particulates.
After the Pre-spray has been evenly distributed and thoroughly absorbed, the technician will then begin extracting the solution and particulates with hot water for a deep clean. Due to the efficiency of our equipment the average drying time for carpet after a cleaning, such as this, is approximately 3 hours.
Our technicians take great care in resetting your furniture, therefore, the last step of our carpet cleaning service ends with our technicians placing wood blocks and furniture pads underneath the legs and feet of furniture. This is very important, because it will keep any wood furniture from absorbing water and swelling. It also keeps any upholstered furniture from "bleeding" on the carpet.

Wilson & Nash County Residents: Follow These Mold Safety Tips If You Suspect Mold
A pipe had rupture in a wall. It is clearly depicted that mold growth had begun to spread over the entire affected area.
If you see visible mold, do not disturb it. You can inadvertently spread the mold infestation throughout your home. When mold is disturbed, the mold can release microscopic mold spores which become airborne and can circulate inside your home.
What to Do:
- Stay out of affected areas.
- Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
- Contact SERVPRO of Wilson/Nashville for mold remediation services.
What Not to Do:
- Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
- Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
- Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
- Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.

Our 16 foot Trailer has storage to haul all the necessary equipment to and from sites with ease. No worries about running out of equipment!
A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your basement could flood, including:
- A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
- Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
- Storm sewer backup
- Sanitary sewer backup
- Foundation drainage failure
- Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
- And many more
