Mold Remediation in Williamson County
Many people may think that their home or business is completely free and clear of mold, but the reality is that mold is pervasive. It is in all of our homes, apartments, basements, attics, and crawl spaces in different forms. With over 100,000 different types of mold identified by scientists, it is literally everywhere. But do you know when to call a professional immediately, before the problem gets worse? SERVPRO of Williamson County can help you find out.
If the mold is in a crawl space, generally speaking so long as it is not extensive it can be considered a normal occurrence and nothing that will cause health problems. However, if the mold has grown in the interior of the home, other issues are nearly guaranteed. It is important to contact a professional in these cases, because self-diagnosis of mold issues can lead to thousands of dollars in mistakes and repairs if diagnosed incorrectly. A professional, called an industrial hygienist (IH), will be able to do a visual inspection and determine how to treat your mold growth moving forward. SERVPRO of Williamson County is in network with many talented industrial hygienists and can assist you in locating a qualified professional to test your air and outline a course of treatment.
Many people assume that any black mold they find in their homes is the dangerous “black mold,” but the actual incidences of true black mold are very minimal. There are over 250,000 common household strains of mold, some of which are black. True black mold is a very specific and rare type of harmful mold growth. However, even if the mold in your home is not the black mold, many other strains of mold can still cause major problems.
The populations most at risk for health problems related to mold are the young, the elderly, and those with compromised immune system. Even for those with severe fungus or penicillin allergies , mold growth can spell disaster for respiratory health. After determining the extent and potential consequences of your mold growth, the IH will create a protocol for SERVPRO of Williamson County to follow. A SERVPRO of Williamson County professional trained in mold remediation will then be able to come in and treat the area thoroughly. We are also state-certified to apply the necessary pesticides to eradicate mold growth once and for all.
If you have mold growth in your home or suspect that you may, do not wait to call a professional before the problem gets worse. Visit our website at servprowilliamsoncounty.com to learn more about our state-of-the-art mold remediation services, or call (615) 790-9634 to speak to one of our franchise professionals about your next steps.
Be “Emergency Ready”with SERVPRO of Williamson County
Did you know that after a natural disaster or massive emergency situation, as many as 50% of all businesses never fully recover? If you are a business owner or manager, this can be a very sobering statistic—especially if you don’t have a plan in place should the worst ever happen. The primary reason businesses never recover is precisely because of poor planning. Most have heard the colloquial advice, “Hope for the best, plan for the worst,” but few actually follow through, particularly when it comes to their businesses.
This is why SERVPRO of Williamson County proudly offers the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile for area businesses to help them be fully prepared for any disaster, no matter what form it may take. At no cost to the business, we come out and give a free assessment of the facility. We put together a comprehensive disaster action plan that includes everything from power shutoff to insurance information to emergency contacts. Many business owners and managers either don’t know this information or don’t have it readily on hand, but the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile will help them do just that.
Once we are finished, businesses will be left with a detailed guide outlining exactly what they will need to do from the moment disaster strikes till the day they are completely back on their feet again. The SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile provides critical details for disaster mitigation and recovery services that no business can truly afford to be without.
Speaking of finances, one of the main reasons many businesses never recover from disaster is because they cannot afford it—it simply costs too much money. But with the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile, recovery time is shortened and expenses streamlined, so there is no wasting time or money on your way back to normalcy.
As the world’s largest disaster recovery and restoration company, we have relationships with hundreds of insurance companies and will work with your provider to handle claims, negotiate prices, and get you back on your feet in no time at all. Just sit back and let us do what we do best!
If you are a business owner or manager and you do not have an emergency preparedness protocol in place for your business, contact SERVPRO of Williamson County today and ask us about the SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile. We will be happy to explain how it works in further detail and schedule an appointment to assess your facility and help you get prepared for “any size disaster.” At SERVPRO of Williamson County, we make it “Like It Never Even Happened!”

How to Prevent Water Damage in Your Home
Although SERVPRO of Williamson County will always be there to help you pick up the pieces after water damages your home, we wish it would never happen to anyone in the first place! And although some water damage, such as that which comes from natural disasters, may be unavoidable. There are certain proactive steps you can take to ensure that potential in-home sources of water damage never become a problem.
Make a habit of regularly checking and performing any necessary maintenance on the following:
- Any pressurized water sources- Toilet, washing machine, and ice maker supply lines are particularly vulnerable to bursting. But any source of water that requires human interaction to stop it from running falls under this category.
- All water supply lines- Sinks, dishwashers, hoses and more all have the potential to break and cause water damage.
- Hot water heaters- A hot water heater bursting can be truly disastrous, and any issues should be dealt with by a professional trained in water heater repair and maintenance. Making sure your water heater is in good working order can mean the difference between a simple, affordable solution, and a costly accident.
- All appliances that use water- The pipes and supply lines are not the only thing that can cause a problem. Dishwashers and washing machines have a nasty habit of overflowing!
Of course, some instances of water damage cannot be prevented with even the most diligent maintenance. And when the worst happens, SERVPRO of Williamson County will be the first on the scene. With any water damage scenario, it is important to have a professional complete the cleanup process, because it is the water you don’t see that does the most damage. You may think you have gotten it all, but lingering water under the floorboards or in other hidden places can lead to mold problems in the future.
No matter what happens, SERVPRO of Williamson County is available to help you 24/7, for any size disaster. For more information about the water damage cleanup services we offer, call (615) 790-9634 today or visit our website at servprowilliamsoncounty.com .
How to Be Prepared During Storm Season in Nashville, TN
The summer months are upon the middle Tennessee area, and soon the typical summer storms will be, as well. With the summer storms come a whole host of other issues: water damage, strong winds, hail, and sometimes even flooding. At SERVPRO of Williamson County, it is our goal to make sure that every individual or business is prepared for summertime disaster—and to be there to help get them get back on their feet.
First of all, it is important to know the difference between a storm watch and a storm warning. Watches and warnings are issued on the radio and television and many people do not know the distinctions between the two.
A storm watch means that conditions are likely for a storm to occur and you are in the projected area. A storm warning means that a storm has been indicated by radar or reported by spotters and is presently occurring.
Second of all, it is important to have an emergency kit prepared and a plan in place to make sure you and your family know what to do in case of a disaster. A plan cannot only save lives, but also minimize the amount of time you are down and get you back into your building or home faster.
Emergency supply kits should always include the following:
- One gallon of water per person, per day
- Three-day supply of nonperishable food items
- Manual can opener
- Battery operated radio
- Flashlight and extra batters
- First aid kit
- Extra clothing
- Dust masks or bandanas
- Plastic sheeting
- Garbage bags
- Duct tape
- Pliers and a wrench
- Hygiene items
- Important documents (insurance policies, IDs, bank account information)
- Fire extinguisher
- Matches in a waterproof container
It can be scary to think about the damage that can come from a strong summer storm, but being prepared helps you know that should the worst happen, you and your family will be safe and able to get back on your feet as soon as possible.
And at SERVPRO of Williamson County, we will be there for you no matter what happens and help you clean up in the aftermath, so your home or building looks as good as new. SERVPRO of Williamson County is faster to any size disaster. For more on the services we offer, call (615) 790-9634 or visit servprowilliamsoncounty.com today!

Are Your Home’s Air Ducts on Your Spring Cleaning Checklist?
Local SERVPRO® remediation specialist offers duct inspection and maintenance guidelines for homeowners
This is the time when homeowners begin to make a list of spring cleaning chores to prepare for warmer weather ahead. This year, Angie Plantz with SERVPRO® of Williamson County suggests including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) ductmaintenance on your to-do list.“At the very least, performing some simple maintenance on the ducts in your home will help your HVAC system work at maximum efficiency,” said Plantz. “In some cases, it may highlight a problem you need to address.”
Plantz offers the following guidelines based on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommendations for routine maintenance of the HVAC system in your home:
1. Maintain filters:
Use the highest efficiency air filter recommended by the manufacturer of your HVAC system and change filters regularly. If your filters become clogged, change them more frequently. Also, be sure you do not have any missing filters so that air cannot bypass filters through gaps around the filter holder.
2. Minimize dust:
Dust and vacuum your home regularly, using the highest efficiency filter bags your vacuum cleaner can take – preferably HEPA bags. If you undertake dusty construction or renovation work in your home, seal off supply and return registers and do not turn your HVAC system on until you have cleaned up the dust.
3. Clean cooling coils and drain pans:
Cooling coils, which are designed to remove water from the air, can be a major source of moisture contamination that can lead to mold growth in your HVAC system. Make sure that the drain pans under these coils drain properly and check any nearby insulation for wet spots. If you see substantial standing water and/or debris in these pans, contact a qualified service professional immediately. If your system includes an in-duct humidifier, be sure to follow manufacturer operating instructions.
For some homeowners, this routine maintenance may uncover evidence of a larger problem, like mold growth, rodent or insect infestation, or ducts so clogged with dust and debris that particles are being released into the home through air supply registers. Plantz says this is the time to call in the professionals for an expert evaluation of the problem and, if necessary, a clean-up plan.
“Restoration and remediation specialists like the technicians at SERVPRO of Williamson County can help you determine how serious the problem is,” says Plantz. “In many cases, routine maintenance is all that is required. But if the problem could pose a health threat to people living in the house, you need to call in the professionals. SERVPRO technicians are trained to use specialized cleaning and disposal techniques to remove any contaminants from your ducts safely and completely, without releasing them into your home.”

SERVPRO of Williamson County is owned and operated by Tim and Natasha Wesley, a couple now making their home in Tennessee. Tim is originally from Kansas and Natasha from London, England. They serve as the proprietors of four Servpro franchises. Tim and Natasha met at a wedding and immediately realized they had chemistry—both personally and in business. Tim had a background in real estate development and finance, and Natasha in construction and charity, so they both had real-world workplace experience they knew they could use to craft a life together.
Enter SERVPRO. Tim and Natasha were living in Knoxville and relocated to the Nashville area to purchase their first two SERVPRO franchises after learning about the strength and heart of the community, and immediately fell in love with its people and mission. They are proud to announce that they have recently acquired two more franchises and could not be more excited about their future at the helm of SERVPRO of Williamson County.
Tim and Natasha have plans to stay rooted in the local community as they move forward. Natasha is on the board of the Donelson Hermitage Chamber of Commerce and was voted their Woman of the Year in 2013. Tim is an Eagle Scout and currently serving as the 2015 fundraising chair of the Donelson, Hermitage and Old Hickory Boy Scouts of America. They both believe in shaping the lives of the community around them through intentional, meaningful engagement.
