Vapor Drive And Mold Damage In Ft. Worth

Mold Remediation Vapor Drive And Mold Damage In Ft. Worth Mold Remediation in Fort Worth Mitigates Damage If Not Ignored--Call SERVPRO

For the Fort Worth Area, SERVPRO Remediates and Advises Regarding Mold Services


Mold growth occurs when mold spores find an adequate source of water available to multiply. In Fort Worth ground moisture may be enough to get the mold spores in a home’s lower levels activated, creating colonies needing abatement before significant damage results. Our crews have the know-how and experience to plan and carry out a successful remediation plan.
 
A phenomenon known as vapor drive moves water vapor from the soil surrounding your Fort Worth dwelling through the foundation materials, into any crawl space. Mold damage is a likely result. The area involved may rarely be inspected, allowing the fungi to grow. A lead from our production team arranges a reading of the moisture levels in the affected space and evaluates the extent of the mold growth to plan for efficient management of the problem. Humidity levels of 60 percent or above support mold growth.
 
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed an industry standard for mold remediation, and our SERVPRO crew members follow it to ensure safety for the inhabitants while also ridding your property of the microbial infestation. Our team includes technicians who hold the applied microbial remediation technician (AMRT) certification from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Certification (IICRC) so you know your home is in good hands.
 
Careful attention to containment makes sure moldy debris does not enter living areas during remediation. Physical barriers may be augmented by advanced technologies such as negative pressure air scrubbers that vent to the outdoors during the process. The moldy materials are bagged and discarded per applicable hazardous waste rules and regulations, a benefit of using the professionals at SERVPRO who remain up to date on proper disposal criteria.
 
SERVPRO then uses air movers, heat, and dehumidifiers to decrease the humidity level in the now-cleaned and disinfected areas to below 50 percent. Since the vapor drive action moves moisture from wetter to drier areas, expect to consult with our experts about strategies to limit this movement in the future. Installation of vapor barriers, or repair and replacement of damaged or poorly sealed existing systems, is a way to limit the moisture from transferring into your home. If this issue remains unaddressed, the mold growth may recur every time the vapor balance shifts between the soil and your foundation or crawl space.
 
SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth is eager and well-qualified to help property owners in our community with mold damage issues. Call us at (817) 741-5737 to schedule a consultation whenever you suspect mold invades your home.

Water Damage Restoration for your Fort Worth Business

1/5/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Water Damage Restoration for your Fort Worth Business Keeping the gutters and downspouts regularly maintained can prevent water damage to your business property.

SERVPRO Offers Certified Water Damage Restoration Services

Roof maintenance chores need doing routinely, or the interior of your Fort Worth commercial building may pay the price with deterioration from water damage. Clogged or missing downspouts can send rainwater into the interior of your property rather than on the ground and away from the foundation. If the problems persist, you may need our restoration assistance.

If your business experiences pooling water from the drains and downspouts clogging with debris it is possible your Fort Worth business could slowly accumulated water damage buildup behind walls and above the ceiling tiles. The leaking may not be noticeable at first, but quickly a large area could be affected and need professional remediation from our water damage experts.

It is not uncommon for water damage to take weeks or longer to become so evident that the business owner calls for help. Water soaks into cellulose fibers like those in drywall and ceiling tiles. When SERVPRO crews arrive expect us to spend some time tracing back the leak to make sure we address all damp areas. Our employees employ moisture meters and scanners to locate any hidden water pockets and to help set drying goals. Mastering the use of this technology is one of the goals we have for our team members when they attend IICRC training.

If water is trapped, we use carefully chosen strategies to release it without creating a considerable disturbance of the affected area of your business. Small holes may be drilled in drywall or cinder block mortar joints to let the water move through. If possible, a wand from an extractor passed through an opening in a wall evacuates moisture. SERVPRO technicians learn a wide variety of methods to remove water during our extensive training.

Once standing water is eliminated, SERVPRO crews in Fort Worth use air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to dry out the damp areas. Throughout the steps, we are vigilant for any signs of mold growth because of the length of time it took to discover the water damage in the first place. If mold infestation is discovered, we use EPA protocols to contain and remove the colonies and any mold infiltrated materials.

SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth covers all the bases when it comes to water damage restoration. Call (817) 741-5737 to set up an assessment for your commercial building.

Water Removal and Cleanup After a Shower Leak in Your Fort Worth Bathroom

12/31/2017 (Permalink)

Water Damage Water Removal and Cleanup After a Shower Leak in Your Fort Worth Bathroom It is important to stay vigilant to potential water damage in/or resulting from your shower or tub. Water damage can quickly result in mold.

Team SERVPRO Thoroughly Remediates Water Damage After an Event in Your Home

A hot shower at the end of a long day in Fort Worth is a welcome thing, but when the shower water begins to escape and to pool where it should not be, you have a problem on your hands. The shower pan or shower base is a waterproof floor which includes the drain and is made to protect the shower area subfloor. Made usually of concrete and tile, terrazzo, metal, or concrete, if it has missing tiles or is sloped poorly, you are dealing with water damage in Fort Worth from a shower leak.
 
If for any reason your shower has caused a leak in your bathroom, the issue needs to be fixed right away. Continual exposure to moisture quickly creates mold in your bathroom, and you need help with the water removal as well. SERVPRO can come to your aid whenever you need us.
 
Once our techs have entirely removed any standing water and then dried out your home again, we can perform the restoration services. These include all the tasks that are needed to return your home to its normal condition before the loss. The restoration process can include any repairs to the structure and contents, final cleaning, final inspections and all of our equipment being removed from the job site when done. We also ensure that all of your belongings are put back into place.
 
One thing SERVPRO staff has to watch out for in a water damaged bathroom is the condition of any ceramic tile which was affected. The grouted joints are usually waterproofed when installing over plywood. However, any cracks make it vulnerable to water damage. The tile often is unaffected, but water can penetrate the grouting, causing warping or expansion of the subfloor, which causes the tiles to come apart at the joints and become loose. We need to repair your subflooring in this case and reinstall the tiles afterward.
 
SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth is thorough when it comes to water removal and restoration of any damage left behind by the leak. You can trust us to take care of your home in Trace Ridge, Heritage Trace, or Keller when you call us at (817) 741-5737.

Water Damage Fort Worth Flood Damage: Sudden But Solvable With SERVPRO The devastation of a flash flood cannot be solved by a home shop vac and a mop.

Flood Damage

Flash flooding in the Fort Worth area causes worry and concern for residents. Often occurring without much or any advanced warning, the flood waters inundate roadways, trapping people in the vehicles. The water saturates the ground, resulting in damage to lower levels and foundations requiring professionals restoration.

Ft. Worth flood damage resulting from the remnants of hurricanes and tropical storms or just “pop up” thunderstorms is a real headache.

If the storm interrupts power do not delay calling SERVPRO for assistance, thinking we work only when your home has live electricity. Our service vehicles come equipped with truck-mounted pumps and water extractors, offering more suction than stand-alone models. We also generate power to operate the equipment within our response vans and trucks. We get to work immediately, pumping out water standing more than two inches above your flooring and then using our commercial grade wet vacuums to pull additional moisture out of corners, recesses, and other hard to reach places.

During the water removal process, our team monitors moisture levels with meters that measure the water absorbed by building materials and contents as a percentage. Following guidelines learned during IICRC training, team members set drying goals and use proper equipment and experience to ensure those goals are achieved. SERVPRO Applied Structural Drying specialists are experts in using air movers, heat, and dehumidifiers to bring moisture down to acceptable levels.

Our work crews are also familiar with the possibility of hazardous substances infiltrating your home along with the floodwaters. Because the water sweeps over pavement and ground, and may also back up from storm sewers and drains, we are vigilant for signs of contamination. SERVPRO trains our responders to identify, contain, and properly dispose of water that may contain human or animal waste, chemicals, or other contaminants. We treat non-porous surfaces soaked with gray or black water using professional and proven antimicrobial products. Our team also identify and advise homeowners to discard porous items that cannot be cleansed of chemicals, bacteria, viruses, and other hazardous pathogens.

The devastation of a flash flood cannot be solved by a home shop vac and a mop. You need the skills and tools provided by SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth to recover from this serious water event. Call (817) 741-5737 as soon as possible to get our flood abatement specialists on the job.

Water Damages Gym Floors in Fort Worth

11/11/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Water Damages Gym Floors in Fort Worth If your health club gymnasium floor sustains water damage, contact SERVPRO for an assessment and restoration services. Call quickly for best results.

SERVPRO Technicians Offer Their Water Damage Remediation Expertise to Businesses in the Area

Local Health clubs in the Fort Worth area have many different offerings for members -- pools, weight areas, running tracks, and gymnasiums, among other designated areas, spread out around locker rooms, lounge areas, and offices and member check-in desks. Water can migrate from an overflowing lap pool or a shower area into other spaces through walls and under subfloors. This influx causes issues that we can help mitigate.
 
Areas of your health club suffer from unexpected and potentially devastating commercial water damage in Fort Worth when one of the pools adjacent to a basketball court overfills chronically. The moisture makes its way through tile grout lines improperly sealed, and day by day soaks through common walls to saturate the plywood subflooring of the floating maple playing floor. You probably had no idea the water seeped in from the flooded pool area until the floor began to show evidence of harm. Our teams of wooden floor drying experts can help manage this complex problem.
 
A floating floor has a better chance of recovery than a nailed down floor when moisture makes it swell, but either kind needs the saturated subflooring dried completely. SERVPRO technicians train extensively in hardwood and subfloor drying strategies, completing coursework at regular intervals based upon IICRC industry standards. The maple floor has some expansion ability by design, but a 150-foot wide gym may see 25 inches of total expansion if the moisture level in the wood rises by just 4 percent. Before this catastrophe happens, warping and buckling the surface beyond repair, we need to rapidly reduce the moisture content of the subfloor as well as the floating maple boards.
 
SERVPRO crews use a variety of techniques to get the moisture out of all layers of flooring. Drying mats pull moisture from more than one level. Areas of the gym floor may be raised to allow the flow of our industrial strength air movers to reach under and through the flooring levels. Powerful dehumidifiers also operate to reduce the moisture content of the air in the gym so that the water vapor moves out of the wood and into the air.
 
As we work on limiting the moisture, SERVPRO crews also evaluate the subfloor to identify any areas requiring repair or replacement. Plywood is a surface made of layers of cellulose pressure treated and formed into a flat surface. If it separates, a form of delamination, it is unlikely to be trustworthy as a secure surface over which the springy maple flooring can float.
 
Water damage linked to flooding in other areas of your health club needs remediation by the skilled technicians of SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth. Call for an assessment at (817) 741-5737.
