Water Damage Call Us When Roots Are Causing Water Damage Problems For Your Fort Worth Home Reach out to us at (817) 741-5737 and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”

Roots Can Get Into Your Fort Worth Pipes Without You Knowing

Regardless of where you live, including Fort Worth, being a homeowner comes with both great joy and great responsibility. The general upkeep of your home depends on your efforts, but there are also neighbors and elements beyond your control that put you at risk. Something as simple as a beautiful tree whose roots grow underneath your crawl space can compromise your plumbing and cause an almost imperceptible leak that slowly erodes your foundation and adds humidity to your living room without you noticing.

When you find water damage in your Fort Worth home, it is best to reach out to a professional team to assess the extent of the damage. Our SERVPRO technicians arrive upon receiving your call and can assess whether the humidity you sense in your living room is only limited to that area or if it has spread to other rooms. Furthermore, we trace the moisture to its origin and work with you to ensure the root compromising your plumbing is taken care of and the source of the leak repaired.

If the root in question is affecting your flooring, our SERVPRO team can help you restore it. For hardwood floors, we concentrate on returning them to their natural moisture level to prevent further buckling. If you have carpet, we use a wand to extract any water residue and make sure it is dry. Even beyond these obvious solutions, we take inventory of all your belongings in the living room including furniture, books, instruments, and decor that may also need to be restored. Our hygrometers help us determine whether they are also victims of excess moisture and we restore them appropriately.

SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth is equipped to handle your water damage needs even when they are not catastrophic. It does not take a flood for your home to need the expert services of a trained team and we are just a phone call away. Reach out to us at (817) 741-5737 and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”

Commercial Water Removal Services for Your Fort Worth Business

When it comes to water leaks in your Fort Worth motel, what you don’t know can hurt your structure. Plumbing leaks are known as a top cause of foundation damage. However, although some leaks are apparent, some are almost impossible to know they are there without looking under foundation slabs or behind walls. When you know what some of the warning signs are that you have a leak, you can avoid the expense and hassle of extensive water damage.
 
When you do suspect you have a water leak in your Fort Worth business building, you need water removal services from a professional remediation company. At SERVPRO, we have extensive experience with all types of water damage, so you can rest assured when you hire us you are getting the best service for your business.
 
One sign something is wrong is a water bill that has had a sudden increase. Some plumbing issues are difficult to spot, so this could be your first indication that you have a problem. Since water use can have fluctuations over a year, you should compare your bill with the same month from the year before to see if something could be amiss.
 
The presence of mold or mildew is a clear sign you have an issue with a water leak. Mold thrives on moist conditions. Keep an eye out for dark spots on floors or ceilings and pay even more attention to any musty odors that are coming from the motel rooms that could indicate excess moisture. Mold can affect guests' clothing, a fact that can lead to negative reviews.
 
When you call SERVPRO with a problem, even if you are not sure where it is, our technicians can help you find it. With special moisture sensors which can detect hidden dampness, we can find the leak source so we can fix the problem. We can then work on removing excess water that has built up, plus clean up any possible mold damage. We also understand how inconvenient disruptions are to your daily business, so we do everything we can to keep the interruptions for you and your guests at a minimum.
 
Other signs you could have a water leak include damaged wallpaper, paint, walls or flooring. When moisture has had a chance to build up inside the walls of your motel, it can lead to cracking, bubbling, warping or sagging. Floors with water damage can create the materials to become soft or spongy. SERVPRO techs can also lightly fog corridors, common areas, and rooms with a pleasant scent to improve the ambiance of the motel.
 
SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth knows that your business in Fossil Creek, Trace Ridge or Park Glen cannot afford downtime due to a water loss emergency. That is why we are available at any time when you dial (817) 741-5737, so do not hesitate to reach out to us as soon as you find a problem.

Your Water Damaged Fort Worth Home Might Have Areas Cordoned Off for These Four Reasons

3/22/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Your Water Damaged Fort Worth Home Might Have Areas Cordoned Off for These Four Reasons   Water damage from a leaking roof, washing machine or pipe can be devastating and needs immediate clean up. Contact SERVPRO to remediate the damage.

SERVPRO Technicians Have Safety in the Forefront After Water Damage in Your Home

Sometimes, a Fort Worth water damage case may prove so severe as to warrant a quarantine or exclusion zone within your home. While we do not make these calls lightly, SERVPRO has to institute such safety precautions for some situations to protect both you and your home while we conduct restorations. While our technicians are typically more than able to explain the full reasoning behind such precautions, it might pay off to know what situations can commonly lead to this decision. 
 
Electrical Hazards 
 
If your Fort Worth home has water damage in a broad area or standing water in a room, this area typically must be cordoned off due to the potential presence of electrical hazards. When outlets and large electronic appliances come into contact with volumes of water, they create a major hazard to anyone not protected by specialized clothing like that worn by SERVPRO technicians. 
 
Mold 
 
If our inspectors find a mold of a dangerous species or spread, they may create a quarantine area to stop its spread and shield residents from potential health effects the mold can cause. We are well-qualified to handle mold situations, so worry not if we do find a problem. We simply incorporate mold remediation into the present cleanup job and keep moving. 
 
Septic Tank Spillage or Other Waste Hazards 
 
When a septic tank has spilled, or some other disaster involving biological waste has occurred, we typically bar access to this area to prevent contamination from occurring. Tainted water sources carry large quantities of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that can create serious health effects even through simple proximity. If you know that your septic tank has ruptured or spilled, be sure to inform our personnel before they arrive so adequate preparations can be made. 
 
Structural Damage 
 
More severe water damage has the potential to cause structural damage to the home. If our trained inspectors find signs of this, they may ask you and your family to vacate the area immediately. Structural collapse can happen suddenly, and without prompting, so it is best to stay away from the at-risk area until we have had enough time to ensure its safety. 
 
SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth is trained and equipped to deal with water damage of any variety. Call us at the first sign of trouble at (817) 741-5737.

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

3/22/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO 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

The Importance of Fast Extraction for Your Keller Store

Store owners place much faith in their buildings when they place the orders to supply their shops with items and goods, and your Keller store is no different. While you might have made the substantial initial investment a long time ago, every item that you have for sale within the shop represents part of that financial arrangement that you have with your supplier to make good on your end of the agreement. When water loss incidents occur within the store, you need to act immediately to protect this investment from irreparable damage. Our professionals can help.

While you cannot predict when you might need water removal services in your Keller store, the faster that you can secure this service, the less of the items and stock throughout your store that can become directly impacted. Our SERVPRO professionals can work quickly to offer effective mitigation solutions including fast extraction when you need it the most. We have multiple tools and pieces of equipment to remove excess water from your building.

When we first come into your building, part of our team works to set up the extraction equipment required to begin removal and restoration efforts while another portion of our crew can work to remove at-risk contents from the affected area. Without a widespread situation, much of these moved items can get stored in a different area of your store unless they require focused drying and cleaning attention.

Our SERVPRO technicians on site determine the best equipment for the severity of the water damage, ranging from mobile wet-vac units with extraction wands to gas-powered trash pumps and our extractor truck. With effective removal of excess water, our team can get to work on thoroughly drying the damaged area and protecting your building from potential reconstruction or remediation needs.

While there are many concerns when your store suffers a water loss incident, the investment that you have made in the stock and contents of the shop is a priority for our SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth team as well. We have efficient extraction and drying equipment to get your doors back open quickly. Give us a call anytime disaster strikes at (817) 741-5737.

How Our Crew Will Restore Your Keller Home After A Flood

3/14/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage How Our Crew Will Restore Your Keller Home After A Flood If you have any flooding in your home, call us today at (817) 741-5737.

Removing Flood Damage In Keller Homes

Keller residents are accustomed to storms rolling in out of a perfectly beautiful afternoon. They make for some interesting skies to watch and photograph, but the resulting floodwaters can cause homeowners thousands of dollars in restoration costs.

Since flood damage to Keller homes comes from outside the structure, the water contains soil and anything else that might be outside the home like animal waste, pesticides, and fertilizer. The presence of these contaminants means SERVPRO restoration teams have to take additional precautions to protect anyone entering the home and to return it to a clean, safe condition.

Team members start by spraying all standing water and exposed surfaces with an anti-bacterial agent to reduce the threat to breathing and physical contact. In addition to the standard rubber boots with every water incident, our specialists also wear rubber gloves, eye protection, body suits, and respirators if needed.

If the floodwater brought in a large amount of soil and debris, it might be necessary for our teams to remove it with shovels and other hand tools. After they remove the trash and other waste, SERVPRO technicians can start removing the water.

We use commercial pumps to clear out homes regardless of the type of water, but with an outside flood, our personnel has to direct the removed water and contaminants into the nearest sewer access point. If the system is overwhelmed by the flood, then restoration teams pump it into a tank truck for disposal in a water reclamation plant.

Now, our teams switch to extraction wands and other devices to draw water out of carpets and off floors. There is no way to 100% guarantee that a carpet is safe for use after a flood, so our teams remove and dispose of the carpet and carpet pad after removing the water to reduce the weight and make it easier to remove. After drawing water off wood flooring, vinyl, or concrete, specialists spray the floors with a strong, anti-bacterial cleaner to eliminate any remaining threat.

Our goal at SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth is to return every Texas home to its owner in a clean, safe condition as close to its pre-flood state as possible. If you have any flooding in your home, call us today at (817) 741-5737.
