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.

Mold Damage Cleanup in Your Fort Worth Home

Mold Remediation Mold Damage Cleanup in Your Fort Worth Home Visible Fort Worth Mold Growth Needs Remediation--Call SERVPRO

Remediation in Fort Worth Area Properties by SERVPRO Are Effective

When drywall in your home in Fort Worth becomes wet, it is nothing to ignore. Not only can it be an expensive repair if you let it go, but it can degrade into a potentially unhealthy environment if you do not get it taken care of quickly. Water damage to your drywall can lead to mold growth and mold damage quite quickly.

Mold can cause health effects, so if you have any mold damage from wet drywall in your home, get in touch with our staff at SERVPRO right away. We come out swiftly to assess the mold damage in your Fort Worth home to develop a plan to take care of the moisture problem and clean up the mold as soon as possible.
 
Since buildings with mold can be associated with health effects, we make sure to wear protective clothing while working. Some safety work practices prevent us from exposure to the mold as we disturb the fungi during the cleanup process. Other procedures stop the mold from spreading to clean areas of your home. HEPA filtered respirators for personnel and air scrubbers for mold spore removal are typical devices.
 
SERVPRO staff record conditions in the home like the extent of the contamination and how much moisture saturation there is. Once remediation is complete, an independent indoor environmental professional might record that the mold in the home has returned to normal conditions. This last step is generally needed after a severe and extensive mold infestation has occurred to a structure.
 
Our work practices aim at keeping the mold contamination from getting airborne and then spreading from the source to clean areas. We place negative air machines near where drywall demolition occurs to reduce the number of airborne mold particles, spores, and dust which workers are exposed to and also to make the process of removing mold more efficient.
 
If the mold has grown beyond normal levels, the best solution is to remove the excess mold contamination. It can be accomplished by physically getting rid of anything that has been damaged by the mold (demolition), by vacuuming mold spores into HEPA filters, and by wiping soiled surfaces with a damp cloth and detergent cleaning products.
 
SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth takes care to remove the mold in your home and disinfect the area thoroughly to make your home safe again. Just give us a call at (817) 741-5737 when you find mold in your home in the areas of Keller, Park Glen, or Heritage Trace.

Eliminating Smoke Damage in Fort Worth

10/18/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Eliminating Smoke Damage in Fort Worth SERVPRO has the knowledge and equipment to get rid of lingering odors left behind from smoke during a fire in your home.

Professional Equipment to Rid Your Home of Lingering Odors after Fire Damage

The majority of costs to a Fort Worth homeowner, after a fire, come from lingering odors. That is because most fires do not cause structural damage or even significant damage to a home. The flames usually happen in a single room like the kitchen, and only smoke gets into other areas of the house.

Lingering odors are probably the most challenging part of fire damage in a Fort Worth home to remove. Owners replace burned property and paint over scorch marks pretty quickly. Even property water-logged from fire-fighting efforts can usually be dried using the right equipment and given enough time. It is not always that simple with odors, but SERVPRO maintains the equipment needed to get the job done.

Ventilation Fans – Our technicians start the process using these machines to move up to 5000 cubic feet of air per minute through a home. These fans also serve a second purpose by blowing air through rooms and across surfaces damp from the efforts to put out the fire.

Ozone Machines – These devices force oxygen molecules to react with odor-causing molecules in the air. This forced action oxidizes the molecules, breaking down the odor completely. It is incredibly efficient, but technicians using the devices have to wear protective gear. While engaged, this ozone gas is dangerous to pets, residents, and items with natural rubber. After the devices are shut off, the gas quickly converts back to oxygen.

Pressure SprayersSERVPRO technicians use these machines to apply deodorizing and other cleaning agents directly onto the affected property. They are very useful on upholstered fabrics and carpets that have substantial amounts of odor-causing smoke residue.

Injectors – These devices are small, commercial grade pumps designed to remove odor-causing stains on a rug or piece of furniture. Our IICRC-certified technicians use them with a large needle to inject a deodorizer directly into the stain. We use this device where possible to avoid reupholstering an item like a sofa.

SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth attempts to restore every home to its original, pre-fire condition. That means not just the personal property, but the first breath that homeowners and residents take when they walk back inside after we finish work as well. For more information about what we can do for your home, call (817) 741-5737 today.

Mold Signs in my Fort Worth home

10/10/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Signs in my Fort Worth home This is from a home that received extensive water damage to the roof. The repair was never made and mold quickly grew through the ceiling.

There exist a multitude of different types of mold varieties in the world today. . Mold can be found in many homes and is a cause of allergies and other related ill health effects.

If you think you may have mold in your Fort Worth home or Fort Worth apartment then you may want to ask yourself the following questions. Mold needs a special environment to thrive.  It needs a food source such as drywall and it needs a water source such as leak.

Do you notice water damage?

Mold is created by moisture. Without it mold wouldn’t exist. Mold spores float around in the air and if they land on a wet surface it can grow out of control quickly. If you see a water spot on the ceiling, wall or floor there might be a potential for mold growth.  It might be a wise idea to have the professionals at SERVPRO of Northeast Fort Worth test your walls to see if there exists any hidden moisture.  Water damage can cause the paint to peel or it can also stain the ceiling and this is called cellulosic staining.  

Allergy symptoms can be a sign of Mold?

Allergy symptoms such as running nose, water eyes or sneezing can be a sign of mold within your home. When mold is growing in your apartment it can cause severe allergic reactions when it’s inhaled or touched. Mold can make asthma symptoms worse as well.

Have you experienced more Headaches?

Mold can form mycotoxins which is toxic to humans. These are produced by toxic strains of mold and can cause serious health problems. Symptoms include dizziness, headaches, short attention span, memory loss and trouble concentrating. If your symptoms increase when at home you may need to see if you have mold in that local.

Is there a musty odor?

Does your home smell like a basement or musty?. Even if you don’t see any signs of mold if you smell it then it’s worth investigating further.

Do you have any known leaks?

Because mold likes wet surfaces and needs the moisture to grow, it is very important to know if you have any existing leaks in pipes or faucets. It is a smart idea to check under your kitchen sink and your bathroom sinks for potential leaks periodically.  

Has Flooding occurred?

If there has been a previous flood there exists the potential for mold spores to be present.  Always ask apartment personel or home sellers if there has ever been a flood and mold after the flood.   

All of these questions can lead further to look into getting a mold expert, or remediation company out to inspect your Fort Worth home.  Luckily SERVPRO of Northeast Fort Worth can help you further by coming out to your home and giving a concise and honest interpretation of any potential mold issues.

When a flooding disaster hits your home, it can be difficult to focus and figure out the next step. You may lose some of your belongings, and the repair cost may be too overwhelming.

After performing a thorough inspection, SERVPRO mold removal specialists can contain the affected areas using physical barriers to keep the spores from migrating during the restoration process. We also filter and clean the air with heavy-duty HEPA filtration systems and then spray the colonies with antimicrobial treatments.

SERVPRO technicians use anti-fungal treatments to decontaminate these items too and then return them safely to your house if it is viable.

Quick, Professional Fire Damage Restoration in Fort Worth that Gets the Job Done Right

Fire Damage Quick, Professional Fire Damage Restoration in Fort Worth that Gets the Job Done Right SERVPRO technicians focus on restoration rather than reconstruction after a fire. Contact us for thorough service that will meet your expectations.

SERVPRO Technicians Efficiently Remediate Your Property After a Fire

We recently began restoration on a Fort Worth property, where a fire occurred on the second floor, only causing minor smoke and water damage to the downstairs. About 40% of the rafters and decking in the roof required replacement and much of the area was black from smoke.  

If you find yourself facing a similar fire damage situation in your Fort Worth area home, obtaining qualified professional help is easier than you might think. You are not alone and should never take on the task of renovating your property by yourself after a fire occurs. It can be hard to address every damaged item correctly, especially without the proper training and equipment.  

Until you face this type of tragedy yourself, you may not fully understand the level of damage that occurs. In this instance, nearly half of the roof, rafters, decking, insulation, wiring, ducting, and other materials require replacement while the other portion needs a thorough cleaning and deodorization method performed to restore and remove the odors that exist.

Hundreds, if not thousands of posts from other do-it-yourself restorers, on websites all over the net, describe this as an unmanageable event. Some claim that you must tear down the entire structure and rebuild to get the odor out of your home after a fire. However, SERVPRO technicians perform deodorization and cleaning methods on a daily basis, successfully restoring many homes just like this one.   

SERVPRO is available throughout your local community; we offer customers full-service solutions to fire damage situations of all shapes and sizes. Regardless of how the fire began on your property, we can help provide you with much-needed answers and solutions that get things back to normal as quickly and efficiently as possible. We can also help you prevent future events from occurring, and give quality recommendations that avoid future losses.

Avoid following someone else’s failed attempts at restoring their home alone. Contact SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth for access to qualified professionals 24/7, 365. We respond quickly, helping you restore your Keller, Park Glen, or Trace Ridge home the right way, the first time, call today. (817) 741-5737

Flood Damage Detection and Restoration in Fort Worth After a Storm

9/12/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Flood Damage Detection and Restoration in Fort Worth After a Storm Fort Worth Flooded Homeowners Call on SERVPRO

Fort Worth Properties, Soil Erosion, and Storm Damage

When the waters from a storm in Fort Worth recede, the owners of flooded homes begin assessing their property for what is salvageable. The damage can be tremendous. If factors such as poor construction, termites, and decay had already compromised the structural integrity of the house, the flood could be the last straw. From this end, it is important to act fast when a natural calamity such as a storm comes visiting.

If you are grappling with flood damage in Fort Worth after a storm, SERVPRO has highly trained disaster recovery teams to counter the impact. We follow IICRC recommendations to ensure a quick and efficient restoration process. Thanks to our advanced cleanup tools and products, we had managed to restore many homes to preloss conditions throughout the years - leaving them as neat as before, "Like it never even happened."
 
Houses that are built on concrete slabs where the soil is mostly clay are particularly vulnerable to flood damage. When clay is saturated, it expands unevenly and elevates parts of a slab, leading to cracks or breaks. Additionally, exterior walls can crack, embedded pipes may rupture, and the roof can sag. Everything gets worse when the soil dries and shrinks. In some cases, moving water may erode the ground from beneath and sweep a poorly-secured house off its foundation. It is advisable to evacuate the building if it has signs of cracks. Most cases are not this extreme, but always be aware of the condition of your foundation.

One of the first signs of flood damage is distorted frames on doors and windows, which prevents them from opening and closing. The glass may also twist and break when the house shifts, while excessive water may weaken interior drywall. Drywall that is soft, moldy, or crumbly should be replaced. SERVPRO technicians can remove walls and ceilings that sustained water damage in the process, and then clean and dry the insides to prevent mold growth. Demolition is done only when needed.
 
Most homes use insulation made of foams or fiber. This type of insulation tends to hold water and should be replaced after flood damage. If your home has closed-cell foam or similar type of insulation, it may absorb water and survive the flood. Most types of structural sheathing are also susceptible to flood damage because they are made of porous materials such as wood chips. When these materials absorb water, they swell and lose their strength. In this case, we may have to remove and replace them with new sheathing as well.
 
Recovering from flood damage after a storm can be challenging. During this time of distress, you can rely on SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth to restore your property. As a part of your community, we understand that a natural disaster in this area can be devastating. For urgent or emergencies conditions call us at (817) 741-5737.
