Here we Goat again.....
We recently had a water damage at a home that needed a bathroom demolition. They had an ongoing water leak, and unfortunately it required dry out and mold remediation. In these situations where the homeowners are going through a upheaval of their home, it is always good to find a bright side to what is going on. Meet the resident goat dog. This little girl loved to follow our crew around and make sure they were doing everything they were supposed to be doing for her human parents. Who needs a guard dog, when you have a guard goat? Maybe SERVPRO of Coffee/Franklin/Warren should offer her a Crew Chief job! In our line of work, we are usually called when something bad happens, so it is wonderful when God blesses us with a little humor, don't you think?
Call us with any water damage needs!

Oh No! SKUNK!
Cute, but smelly.
Throughout the years one thing that has become an every year occurrence is the dreaded Pepe Le Pew scenario, yes the SKUNK. This little critter, possibly her little babies will somehow find its way into your home or business and decide to give you a present called skunk smell, which will permeate throughout your home, or your loyal dog will encounter this gal and coming running thru your home for your help. First course of action is to remove the skunk hopefully alive. Once the source has been removed, we here at SERVPRO of Coffee/Franklin/Warren Counties can help. One of SERVPRO’s Professional Products we use for skunks is Bio Odor Neutralizer, this product contains an exclusive neutralizing agent that forms complexes with sulfur and amine based odors (ie; skunk, seafood, spoiled foods, and dead bodies). We have a protocol to remedy the skunk smell in your home or crawlspace.
Tragedies; No One knows When.
Unfortunately our world is a place in which bad things happen like suicide’s, we recently received a call from an adjuster to see if it was possible that we could dispatch a crew immediately for the policy holder, as they had family members coming in and they did not want this scene to be visible. We here at SERVPRO of Coffee/Franklin/Warren Counties stopped what we were doing and sent a crew there to re-mediate. The family members were grateful for the quick response that was provided. This is one area of the business that is difficult as we are dealing with individuals who have recently lost a loved one, but in the same manner we were there to assist them during this hard time. After we cleaned contents that could be cleaned and removed materials that were contaminated the homeowners were extremely pleased and thanked us again for service.
Man's Best Friend, Water Damage from the Dog's perspective.
Here is a story in which man’s best friend is not a man but a beloved dog (Faucet Head). This dog got stuck in the bathroom one day while the homeowner was away, and while he played in there jumping on commode and sink and back down again, Faucet Head accidently knocked off the lid to the toilet. Well guess what Murphy’s law, if it could happen it will. The lid fell and landed on the supply line causing it to be ripped off the stop. Faucet Head had no idea what to do, he was unable to call SERVPRO and have it cleaned up before Daddy got home, so he just jumped into the tub and waited. Daddy arrived home and walked into water running thru the house, he found Faucet Head crouched down in the tub. Of course who can get mad at your best friend. Daddy immediately shut off the water to the house and called SERVPRO of Coffee/Franklin/Warren Counties and they quickly extracted the water and dried the structure. Thank goodness SERVPRO came, because they made it "Like it never even happened."
A Day in the Life.....
SERVPRO of CFW
What is it like to work for a mitigation company? Most people go to a job, where if they are lucky will be a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 and then they get to go home. But what happens when a emergency happens? There needs to be someone that will be available to call! At SERVPRO of CFW we have trained men and women who drop everything day or night to make sure if someone needs them, they are right there to help!
Now, this is not to say we don't enjoy a little Monday through Friday. We have regular business hours just like everyone else, and have an on call team in place 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! So don't hesitate to call if Grandma burns up the house when she was trying to make that special stuffing.
So here is a little glimpse into what the day would look like for one of our Crew Chiefs:
They would come in at 7:30, they get their work orders for the day. Then they give instructions to their team to gather supplies, check their trucks over and fuel up. Then its off to the races!
However, like today a call can come in and those Crew Chief's will have to re-route what they are doing so we can help everyone who needs us!
At the end of the day, we want everyone to feel safe in their home, and to feel like we are taking the best care of them!

Call Today - 931-723-8088
We understand that when you call us, you may be feeling confused, stressed, and vulnerable. You need an expert to guide you through this crisis. SERVPRO of CFW has the specific water damage training and experience to help you through this tough time. We specialize in water damage restoration—in fact, it's the cornerstone of our business.
What to Expect
When you call, we will ask several questions regarding your water damage emergency. These questions will help us determine what equipment and resources to bring, including how many trained SERVPRO Professionals may be needed.
Our SERVPRO Representative will ask several questions:
- Your name and contact information
- Your insurance information (if applicable)
- The street address of the water-damaged home or business
- When did the flooding or water damage occur?
- What caused the water damage (if known)?
- Is there electricity available (on-site)?
Taking out Drywall
Recently SERVPRO of CFW drove over to Texas to be part of the hurricane relief effort. Hurricane Harvey started August 17th, and plagued the gulf and its people until it finally dissipated September 3rd.
We sent out a team of 7 people on September 1st, and ended up helping 10 families over the next two weeks. We cried, laughed and hugged the home owners all around the Houston area that we encountered. Most of the homes had flooded with the water from the storm and their homes were in need of a lot of demolition and sanitation.
At one point one team even rescued a woman whose house was on fire before any rescue squads were called. They were just driving by and saw the flames coming out of the kitchen window.
Between walking for a few miles because roads were in order to get to customers who needed us, dealing with fires and stabilizing flooded homes, the guys and gals from our crew certainly earned their keep!
But we are so blessed that we were able to be part of this, and gratful to God for keeping everyone safe and bringing them home to us!
If anyone needs us, don't hesitate to call! 931-723-8088

Keeping out the Spores!
Containment Chamber with Negative Air
How many of you have found mold in your homes? If you have mold in your home, chances are, you have had a water damage that you didn't know about or a moisture issue due to your HVAC system having a mal-function. We recently did a job where there was a water damage that the customer did not notice right away. So we had to professionally make sure that we set a proper containment so the rest of her house did not get contaminated with those pesky little mold spores. Containment is a crucial part of keeping your house from being affected by the mold. SERVPRO of CFW is mold certified and ready to help you get your house back in shape! We also take care of crawlspaces, which if you live in Tennessee, you have probably come across this problem before. So do not hesitate to give us a call and we can get you back to a clean house. 931-723-8088
