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

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.

Vapor Drive And Mold Damage In Ft. Worth

1/9/2018 (Permalink)

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.
