Together we get it done.

Life is full of mishaps and otherwise unwanted stress creators such as storms. Did you know that wind can reach speeds of up to 60 mph in severe cases? This kind of wind in your Alamo, Tennessee home or business can cause several different kinds of damage, as well as leave areas of the structure vulnerable to water damage as well as fire damage due to lightening strikes and broken pipes. We can work together to lower chances for incurring injury and/or cost due to storm damage.

Your part.
Preparedness is a necessary tool in your efforts to protect your home in Crockett County.

It’s your house; so not only do you have a vested interest in lowering risks to your home and family; but that same preparedness creates a more stress free environment.

Be prepared for the worst when times are the best. Don’t wait until the wind is moving at speeds of forty mph outside before you start making calls and buying batteries. Do these things early on when there are no clouds in the sky.

Our part.

SERVPRO of Jackson/Crockett County promises to answer when you call. We promise that the person fielding your call will understand not only the proper responses to your clean up and restoration questions; but they will understand your vulnerable and stressful position as the owner/insurance adjuster.

SERVPRO of Jackson/Crockett County: Preventing Mold Growth.

SERVPRO of Jackson/Crockett County is licensed in mold remediation. We hope you never have a mold problem.

Mold starts growing within 24 hours of exposure to moisture.

To prevent mold from getting a start, SERVPRO of Jackson/Crockett County suggests:

  • Elevate equipment above basement floor
  • Repair leaky pipes
  • Remove any damp areas near sinks and tubs
  • Maintain humidity below 40%
  • Use water-resistant materials when you build or rebuild. Materials include:
    • galvanized or stainless-steel hardware
    • waterproof wallboard
    • tile
    • sealed stone
    • sealed concrete
    • water-resistant glues
    • synthetic fibers
  • Use gutters to divert rain water
  • Landscape, so water moves away from the house
  • Cover dirt in crawl spaces. Moisture can seep up through dirt
  • Ventilate as much as possible


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines a “large amount” of mold as 10 square feet or more. The EPA rules that only licensed professionals can remediate large areas.

You cannot prevent storms or floods. However, if a storm or flood affects you, we can help you clean up the damage.

Causes & Categories of Water Damage in Jackson/Crockett County:

An old poem has the line, “water, water, everywhere”. When you need to say this in your house, you know there is trouble. You may be looking at water damage. There are several different possible causes of water damage in Jackson/Crockett County.   

Causes can include:

  • Leaky dishwashers or washing machines
  • Clogged pipes
  • Leaking roofs
  • Broken toilet pipes
  • Heavy rain
  • Snow or ice

The amount of water damage depends on the amount of water and on the cause of the damage.

It is also important to start cleanup as soon as possible. The longer your home or business is water-logged, the more damage.

Categories of Water Damage in Jackson/Crockett County:

  1. Clean water. It might come from an overflowing sink or a broken appliance. The water does not pose a threat to people. Keep in mind that any water will become contaminated after it stops flowing.
  2. Gray water. This water is contaminated from the get-go. It comes from broken toilets or sump pumps. It might not look dirty, or it might be brown.
  • Black water. Like gray water, it might not look dirty. One major source of black water is broken sewage pipes. Another source is any water that has been standing still.
