Last week SERVPRO of Coffee/Franklin/Warren had the pleasure of helping out at the TSSAA (Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association) golf tournament working with the Manchester Chamber of Commerce table. The Chamber of Commerce was there welcoming the families of the tournament and letting them know about all the neat things our community and how much we appreciate them staying in our city! Those kids are awesome!
If you have a minute take a look at our Manchester Chamber of Commerce's website. There is a lot of great information, and even an events calendar to keep you up to date with what is going on!
As always we love our community and our customers! Call us if you need anything at all!

Before and After example of soda blasting
SERVPRO is not afraid to tackle any kind of job! Recently one of our commercial clients asked us to do soda blasting of their attic space after a fire. Soda blasting is a awesome way to clean soot off of wood, and make it look almost untouched from a fire. Take a look at this picture. This is a great example of what soda blasting can achieve! The left side has soot residue on it and the right looks cleaner after this process! If you have a fire, take heart! SERVPRO can help your business become good as new again! 931-723-8088 ~Sue Mihatov
This fire resulted in a fire that actually started in the mulch on the outside of the building and made its way on the inside of the building and up into the attic. Unfortunately, there were customers in the building, but they all got out safely.

Drying your Documents
Don't let your papers deteriorate!
What would you do if you have water damage and all of your documents get wet? This can happen either at home or at your business. You call SERVPRO of CFW of course! We now offer Vacuum Freeze Drying! What is this? SERVPRO is only 1 of 3 companies in the United States that has a machine that can handle this. We want to be able to preserve your documents.
Vacuum Freeze drying
- Process in which an item containing moisture is frozen and dried using various vacuums and pressures to achieve sublimation.
• The direct conversion of a solid (Ice) into a gas (water vapor), without passage through a liquid stage.
• Take dry ice for example. Dry ice is made of carbon dioxide, not water. When dry ice is exposed to normal atmospheric conditions it begins to sublimate, it turns directly from its sold stage into its gaseous stage bypassing the liquid stage.
What are the benefits of freeze drying?
Vacuum freeze drying is the most efficient and effective way to salvage water damaged documents.
It is the only method that is approved by NARA (National Archives and Records Administration) and the GSA (General Services Administration).
Other methods such as dehumidification can alter the structure of the paper’s fibers and cause the papers to become more brittle, and is not recommended by any means.
We also offer digitizing of those documents if needed or wanted
So don’t panic and call us! We want to help! 931-723-8088 Sue Mihatov SMR

Bathroom of Fire
There was a fire that broke out into home that ended up charring the entire first floor. The second floor of the home was covered in soot. Both floors needed to be completely gone through and throughly cleaned. When a home has soot it is crucial that all the contents are cleaned. Most people do not know but soot can even enter closed books and drawers, so it is important to make sure that every item is addressed. At the end of this job, the homeowners were very happy to see their home was starting to look like the fire never happened and they could start to put the pieces back together.
Hebrews 13:16 "Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God."
Sprinkler Pipes Burst
Cause of water flow was a busted dry pipe sprinkler pipe, that affected about 36 rooms at the hotel.
Fire crews responded to a Fire Alarm activation at a local hotel on January 19, 2016. Upon arrival they saw water flowing out of the third floor. Fire crews did an awesome job of squeeging as much water as the could out of the third floor, shut down the system quickly so as not to cause any more damage. SERVPRO of Coffee/Franklin/Warren counties came in immediately after the fire crew and began the clean up. We removed all nonsalvagable wet items and began the water removal and drying processes. Our water teams worked tirelessly for days to restore this commercial property as quickly as possible. "Time is Money" and we don't want our clients to miss out on business any longer than absolutely necessary!
Flooding in St. Louis, MO Winter 2016
It didn't take long to realize that we didn't need to promise a time to homeowners... a lot of roads were closed and it took several GPS attempts
On December 26 & 27, 2015 the Mississippi River overflowed into most parts of the St. Louis area creating massive flooding in businesses, homes and closing major roads. As part of a large loss/storm team, we deployed 2 water damage teams and a marketer to the affected area. For 12 days, SERVPRO of Coffee/Franklin/Warren Counties cleaned damage done by sump pump and sewage back ups in homeowner basements. One homeowner hugged our marketer when he found out that we'd start cleaning by morning. Most homeowners were surprised that we had come so far to help....
