Commercial Fort Worth's Commercial Water Damage Experts Explain Drying Techniques If moisture sits inside your business' warehouse for too long items stored there may get ruined.

Commercial Water Damage Experts

Drying out wet materials and contents inside your Fort Worth warehouse is an essential part of the restoration process. After standing water and moisture in carpet gets extracted, building materials must be dried so that more damage does not occur. To help speed up the natural evaporation process air moving and dehumidification systems get implemented.

If moisture sits inside your business' warehouse for too long items stored there may get ruined. If moisture resulting from a commercial water damage incident in Fort Worth does not get removed within 24 hours, mold can develop on building materials and contents such as tools or products stored for your company. Mold can cause health effects with some people and commonly develops inside a building that contains excessive moisture in the air and building materials.

When drying out moisture inside a structure, our SERVPRO technicians use air movers and dehumidifiers to create an environment that speeds up the drying of wet materials. The pieces of equipment get arranged in places that do not impede foot traffic and hinder business operations. The air movers get set up so that they push air in a counterclockwise motion hitting walls at a 45-degree angle to push the wet air away from the walls. The dehumidifier then pulls water out of the air, dispenses it in liquid form, and exhausts out warm, dry air that gets used in the air flow created by the air movers.

As water naturally evaporates off of wet materials the air close to it holds moisture. The air movers push this moist air into the center of the room where the dehumidifier can remove the water vapor. However, we do not position the air movers directly at the dehumidifiers because that would reduce the quantity of warm air coming out of them. Dehumidifiers instead get placed so that air movers can intake the hot, dry air exhausted out of them after water vapor is removed.

The correct positioning of drying equipment can reduce the time it takes to dry out moisture inside your warehouse thus saving your company money. Calling SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth at (817) 741-5737 after a loss can prove to be beneficial to your business.

Luckily, professional help is nearby to get your office back to its pre-storm state quickly.

Mold Damage Mitigation In Fort Worth

4/8/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Damage Mitigation In Fort Worth Mold can appear in many colors or just give off a smell when it hides behind walls and cabinets. Contact SERVPRO when you see or smell mold.

Team SERVPRO Follows a Proven Process When Remediating Mold Damage


Mold is often a significant problem inside your Fort Worth home if it goes unnoticed. A fungus develops from spores then grows structures called hyphae. Hyphae grow in all directions including down into the materials, out across surfaces, and up.
 
Hyphae produce more spores so that the fungi can reproduce. SERVPRO's mold damage technicians in Fort Worth have experience in finding mold and dealing with it. If mold issues do not get handled, then it is possible that spores float to other rooms and turn into mold.
 
If there is a presence of spores, mold only needs three things to survive. A fungus needs an organic food source, moisture, and the correct temperature to form and thrive. Once mold exists the area must get treated because it can cause health effects with certain people.
 
The first step to mold remediation is first to determine if mold exists or not. SERVPRO's restoration team inspects your home to see if mold growth has already occurred. The team asks to see if the structure had recent water damage and they look around to see if they can visually see mold in the form of black dots or white fuzz.
 
If a fungus exists inside your house, we follow a few vital steps when completing the mitigation process. First, we establish containment, so the environment outside the affected area does not get contaminated. Before any work begins, we section off the contaminated area with a thick, plastic containment chamber.
 
The containment chamber then gets a hole cut into it, and an air scrubber gets set up on the hole to create negative air pressure. All of the air then gets sucked into a HEPA filter. The filter traps all fungi particles and mold spores preventing them from spreading to other areas inside or outside the building.
 
Once the containment chamber gets established, any affected material gets removed. Any dust created during demolition gets filtered through the air scrubber so that it does not contaminate anything. For professional help mitigating a fungal issue, call SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth at (817) 741-5737 24/7.

Why You Should Choose Professional Water Damage Restoration For Your Fort Worth Retail Store

3/30/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Why You Should Choose Professional Water Damage Restoration For Your Fort Worth Retail Store When facing water damage in your store, it is best to bring in professionals immediately to minimize any downtime. Contact SERVPRO right away.

SERVPRO's Quick Actions Can Help Reopen Your Store Doors More Quickly After a Water Damage Event

Your Fort Worth retail store hinges on having the right goods for the shoppers that happen into your store. While every day is a new challenge to bring people in through the doors and get them to spend some time perusing your wares, something seemingly as trivial as a water emergency could significantly gum up the works. Instead of worrying about customer retention and attracting new business, you are now worried about how long your establishment has to keep its doors closed and the effect that this has on your bottom line and the employees that count on their paycheck every week.
 
Commercial water damage in your Fort Worth store can present itself in several ways. The real struggle with an occurrence like this is to get it cleaned up, and the area restored as quickly as you can. Without professional restoration services, like those provided by our SERVPRO team, you might not have the ability to reopen your business for quite some time and still might not have corrected the full problem that you had initially faced.
 
One of the primary concerns that you face is the apparent potential loss of profits from having to close the business while restoration efforts are underway. With our experienced SERVPRO team, your doors can reopen more quickly, allowing this perceived loss in profits to be a little less extreme than it could have been with your intentions of trying to clean up the mess on your own.
 
The threats to your stock and structure are another concern that needs to get considered when it comes to professional restoration. The longer that water sits against structural components and stock in your store, the more damage that it does. It does not take long before the damage is irreparable to the stock items and structural components weaken to the point of requiring replacement.
 
Your employees count on your retail store to pay their bills and provide for their homesteads. The longer that your business has to remain closed for the cleanup process, the longer that these dedicated employees are without the pay that they need to survive. This reality should give you an excellent mindset to choose professional restoration services to thoroughly and promptly clean up the mess and restore the damages to the business.
 
There is no time to lose when water damage affects your business. With the threat of compounding damages and the loss of profits, choosing professional restoration services like our SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth team is a smart choice. Give us a call today at (817) 741-5737.

When Fire Damage Takes Your Fort Worth Family Rec Room Out of Commission

3/9/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage When Fire Damage Takes Your Fort Worth Family Rec Room Out of Commission When a fire damages your home, call on the professionals at SERVPRO to return your home to its pre loss condition "Like it never even happened."

Rely on SERVPRO to Restore Your Home and Its Contents after Fire Damage

Enjoying a relaxing time with friends and family in your Fort Worth home's rec room helps you stay more productive at work while also enjoying quality family time at home. Most of the time, this stays an uneventful passing, but unfortunately, accidents can happen, also.

When activities in your Fort Worth home get cut short because of fire damage, we can help undo the damage and restore your property. At SERVPRO, we stay on top of the latest developments in the restoration industry, meaning we can always help those in our community when they need us the most. The three main aspects of fire damage all require attention and skilled technicians who can mitigate the situation thoroughly and with professionalism.

It is only through the removal and replacement of charred materials and burnt personal belongings that some aspects can regain their appearance and functionality. When walls burn, removing the damaged sections prepares the area for reconstruction work. Inventory lists of damaged clothing, toys, books, and other items help replace like-kind items, helping your family get everything back to normal faster and with less effort.

Smoke from a small fire in your rec room can travel quickly to all other parts of your home. This smoke leaves not only soot and ash in fine layers on surfaces, making everything a grimy mess, but it also invades the smallest crevices in your home's interior. Although we remove the visible remnants of the smoke, protecting your family from this carcinogenic stew, much can remain in the smaller, less-accessible areas in your home.

Hidden soot can cause problems as the particles disintegrate and become airborne again. Not only do they produce an ongoing foul odor, ruin your food's appeal, and make your home smell terrible, they can also expose your family needlessly to the same carcinogenic compounds found in the original soot. We often use thermal fogging to rid homes of such problems. The fog follows the same pathways of the fire's smoke, and wherever the chemical agents encounter soot, reactions between the two changes the soot into an inert substance, unable to enter the air again. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) handles this and other related tasks after this and other types of disasters.

We partner with qualified specialists who can restore electronic equipment after a fire. Both heat and smoke that entered into the housing of your devices can cause problems. After any disaster that might affect your video games, computers, or other gear, these should remain unpowered until after a thorough inspection. Circuit boards and other connections can short out if you power on damaged equipment, rendering your equipment useless or in need of expensive repairs.

Wanting to help families in our area recover as quickly as possible from the trauma of fire damage, SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth can be contacted by dialing our local number, (817) 741-5737, at any time, day or night, 365 days a year.

Fire Damage from Hair Straighteners and Curlers in Your Fort Worth Home

2/27/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Fire Damage from Hair Straighteners and Curlers in Your Fort Worth Home Leaving hair straighteners and hair curlers unattended is a fire hazard and can leave your home in need of fire damage restoration services.

Rely on SERVPRO to Restore Your Home after Fire Damage

For many people, a hair straightener or hair curler is an essential daily beauty aid. These devices can, however, pose a fire hazard if they are unattended. If you regularly use one of these items in your home in Fort Worth, you should avoid leaving it plugged in when it is not in use, and always ensure you are placing them on a non-flammable surface to avoid combustion. The fire risk that straighteners and curlers pose should not be underestimated, as if left alone even for a short while, small fires can spark and spread, causing additional damage.

Fires from these devices are no less scary than any other fire, and the fire damage they can leave behind in your Forth Worth home can be devastating. You may wonder how your home is ever going to look the same, or where to begin. That is where our technicians at SERVPRO come in. We are here to help you after a disaster like this anytime you need us.

When cleaning your home after fire damage, there are four fundamental elements which are required to suspend residues so we can remove them. Temperature is first, as heat increases how fast the chemical reactions in the cleaning products are. We choose the right temperature depending on the solution for cleaning and the material being cleaned.

Agitation is the next step in SERVPRO’s cleaning process. We agitate surfaces by using brushes, towels, water and air pressure, and the sonic vibrations found in ultrasonic machines. Agitation loosens residues from surfaces and spreads the cleaning products over the surface.

The professional cleaning products go through several chemical reactions with surfaces and residues. We choose the right cleaning product depending on what action we desire, like emulsifying, dissolving, oxidizing, bleaching, or changing ph. The amount of dwell time which is needed for professional cleaning and deodorizing products varies depending on the kind of residues and products.

SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth takes the time to thoroughly clean and sanitize anything in your home in Trace Ridge, Heritage Trace, or Fossil Creek that is salvageable after a fire. Just give us a call at (817) 741-5737 as soon as the fire is out so we can help you restore your home.
