We Have State Of The Art Equipment To Restore Your Fort Worth Fire Damage

8/12/2019 (Permalink)

Garage fires are very common in the area and we can offer our immediate response and provide trained technicians to assist you.

How We Handle the Work for Fort Worth Factories with Fire Damage

Fire damage to factories and other industrial facilities can seem overwhelming in their scale. Due to the presence of flammable materials, numerous potential safety hazards, and large buildings, some of our most challenging projects involve cleaning up after fires in industrial settings. We have the manpower and equipment necessary to restore your facility to the way it was before the disaster for even the worst situations but have a few extra tricks for when situations start to get out of hand.

The SERVPRO Network

Part of the reason why we are always ready to handle fire damage to a factory in Fort Worth is thanks to our network of sister franchises that can provide support when we need it most. SERVPRO franchises number in the thousands across the country, and if a disaster is ever so massive as to overwhelm our local capabilities, we can call in additional resources and workforces from other nearby areas. Usually, we only need to call in these forces for widespread flooding or fires that spread across multiple properties, but we may use them for particularly disastrous industrial fires.

Industrially Focused Equipment

Handling smoke and fire damages in large buildings require us to use similarly large and powerful pieces of equipment. Our technicians use top-of-the-line items like dry ice blasters and thermal fogging machines to clean up fire residues with maximum efficiency even in buildings with large floor spaces. We keep these devices (and the materials they need to function) heavily stocked at our local facilities to ensure that more significant buildings receive the coverage they need.

Versatile Certifications

SERVPRO technicians receive a wide variety of certifications from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration before getting placed on any of our crews. Even after they start responding to calls and operating as a full team member, many take the opportunity to pursue additional training and certifications to specialize in specific types of damage restoration, including fire and smoke damage. Our teams thus have the certifications and training necessary to handle any industrial disaster and the safety hazards that may accompany it.

SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth is professionally trained and equipped to handle even the most massive fires with optimal efficiency at a minimal cost. Call us at (817) 741-5737 for our 24/7 services or a quote.

We Will Cleanup Smoke And Soot Residue In Your Fire Damaged Fort Worth Bookstore

7/8/2019 (Permalink)

When smoke and soot from a fire have damaged your bookstore, call SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth at (817) 741-5737 for restoration services.

Commercial Fire Damage In A Fort Worth Bookstore Necessitates Smoke And Soot Cleanup Services

Fire protection is a principal concern for commercial buildings and property managers, and owners take various precautions to protect the buildings from fire, including installing fire sprinkler systems. However, defective or old wiring, loose connections, overloaded circuits, and faulty fuses can lead to sparks or overheating that ignites a fire.

One thing you may have to deal with after commercial fire damage in your Fort Worth bookstore is smoke and soot, which can spread all over the immediate area and cause the discoloration of the ceiling, shelves, walls, flooring, and inventory. Soot composition varies based on the underlying causes. All kinds of soot cause some darkening, and in severe cases, it appears black.

Hot fires that burn products made from natural materials quickly cause dry soot. It has a dusty, dry texture and a minor scent. The heat from a fire can trigger the fire sprinkler system in your bookstore. If a fire smolders on low heat for a while, it can create wet soot. To clean wet soot, it is crucial to combine fire damage and water damage remediation strategies. At SERVPRO, we have the equipment required to deal with water damage resulting from firefighting efforts, such as:

• Extractors with a heater, pump, and vacuum system

• Air movers

• Dehumidifiers

• Thermo hygrometers

A fire in your bookstore can destroy the bookshelves, furniture, books, book journals, magazines, highlighters, and newspapers and leave others covered in soot. This damage can bring business operations to a halt, and you need to deal with it promptly. Our technicians can attempt to clean books that have soot and smoke damage by using dry cleaning methods to remove dry smoke residues. We can also try to remove loose particles by blowing, vacuuming, or brushing the books with compressed air. However, books present a unique challenge we cannot always guarantee their successful restoration.

Our Fire & Smoke Damage Technicians (FRST) technicians can use specialized cleaning equipment, products, and techniques to clean the shelves, floors, and furniture. Some materials in these items are synthetic and create chemical reactions when burned. Removing the chemicals quickly prevents etching and pitting. If your bookstore has carpet flooring, our SERVPRO technicians can vacuum it using vacuum cleaning machines containing a high-efficiency filter.
 
We can also remove smoke odors from the indoor environment through thermal fogging. A thermal fogger heats deodorizing agents into a fog, which mimics the behavior of smoke. The fog travels to areas where the smoke traveled and eliminates odor from hard to access areas and surfaces.

When smoke and soot from a fire have damaged your bookstore, call SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth at (817) 741-5737 for restoration services. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

We Put The Flames Of Worry Out In Forth Worth After A Fire Disaster

Fire Damage to Your Fort Worth Business Needs Our Professional Remediation

The possibility of a fire in your Fort Worth restaurant kitchen cannot help but be always in the back of your mind as an owner. Although the devastation a fire can cause might seem impossible to overcome in the immediate aftermath, our highly-qualified technicians have great success using our inventory of state-of-the-art equipment and restoration best practices mastered in Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) courses.

The safety of both diners and employees is your priority if a fire damages your Fort Worth restaurant. Ensuring that your business recovers from the disaster fulfills our mission to provide industry-leading remediation services to the businesses in our community. Our crews mobilize fast, traveling to your site as soon as possible after your call.

Speed is crucial when mitigating the effects of fire damage. Within the first minutes and hours after the flames extinguish, fire residues pose the risk of progressive and permanent harm to structural components and the contents of your restaurant. SERVPRO crew members evaluate the types of residues found throughout your kitchen, dining rooms, storage areas, and other spaces.

We match appropriate products and methods to the different characteristics of soots coating surfaces. Protein-based soot is common in kitchen fires, depositing a thin and highly malodorous film that is hard to remove without solvents and abrasive tools. SERVPRO technicians can use barriers and air scrubbers to contain the cooking area, preventing the spread of debris to other spaces.

Even if your quick-thinking staff knocked down the flames with chemical extinguishers, secondary effects of the fire could linger. Persistent odors are particularly troublesome in an eating establishment as they interfere with the enjoyment of diners as they order and eat from your tempting menu. SERVPRO employees who complete the IICRC Odor Control Technician (OCT) course follow a research-based protocol to eliminate the stench in your establishment.

If clearing away charred items and thorough cleaning does not do the trick, SERVPRO turns to innovative techniques like thermal fogging or hydroxyl generators to eradicate the noxious smell. Thermal fogging recreates the fire environment, combusting deodorizers at high temperatures, so they attach to odoriferous particles and neutralize them. Hydroxyl radicals produced when ultraviolet rays react with water vapor (H2O) and oxygen (O2) dismantle the odor-bearing molecules. We this cutting-edge technology as a more successful and sustainable alternative to masking agents.

Contact SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth as soon as firefighters release your commercial property for abatement assessment. Call (817) 741-5737 day or night to schedule an inspection and develop a remediation and deodorization plan.

Wondering How You Are Going to Tackle Commercial Flood Damage in Your Fort Worth Business?

Don't let your business get taken over by flood damage. Call SERVPRO today for all remediation needs.

SERVPRO Helps Fort Worth B&B Beat Commercial Flood Damage

Commercial flood damage can be a devastating situation for a business owner. This type of water loss is rated as a category three biohazard and sometimes referred to as “black water,” and it is vital that the cleanup is done professionally to have sanitary conditions for both employees and customers and to avoid secondary damages to the property.

SERVPRO assisted a bed and breakfast commercial property in Fort Worth that received flood damage from some locally heavy storms. Groundwater entered through worn weather stripping on the back door and drenched the breakfast area where guests gathered each morning for a homemade breakfast after spending the night.

The B&B owner cleaned the water up when it first entered the property, but soon realized the job was going to be much larger than merely mopping up some rainwater. She placed a call to SERVPRO late in the evening, and we arrived a few hours later to begin mitigation on the property.

Our technicians immediately scoped the room with our detection equipment to determine areas of water migration. Fast action by the B&B owner stopped water from reaching the subflooring; however, we found elevated moisture levels within the baseboards, very bottom of the sheetrock and under the cabinetry.  

When moisture wicks into sheetrock, sometimes flood cuts are necessary to remove unsalvageable materials and let enough air flow in to dry the wall cavity. In this case, the wicking was minor and not enough to warrant flood cuts. The technicians determined the sheetrock could be mitigated and removed the baseboards and toe kickboards under the cabinets for drying purposes.

Using specific configurations with equipment such as our InjectiDry that forces air into small openings, our air movers forced air into the affected spaces to ensure they reached drying goals to inhibit the potential for mold growth and foul odors. Afterward, our technicians thoroughly cleaned and sanitized the kitchen area to get it ready for reopening for breakfast for the guests.

SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth is ready to come to your property 24/7 to mitigate commercial flood damage. Call us at (817) 741-5737, and our technicians arrive within hours because We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

The SERVPRO Green Box Truck Is Faster To Any SIze Disaster, Ready for Commercial Water Restoration in Fort Worth

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.

Fort Worth's Commercial Water Damage Experts Explain Drying Techniques

4/24/2018 (Permalink)

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.

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

3/30/2018 (Permalink)

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.

Water Damage Restoration for your Fort Worth Business

1/5/2018 (Permalink)

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 Damages Gym Floors in Fort Worth

11/11/2017 (Permalink)

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.

Commercial Water Removal Services for Retail Stores in Fort Worth

10/13/2017 (Permalink)

Are you prepared in the event a water emergency strikes your retail store?

Is your Fort Worth Business Prepared If A Water Emergency Strikes?

Water can cause a lot of damage within a short period. It is an invisible threat that creeps rapidly through spaces and crevices, invading several other areas. Adequate training is essential to avoid further damage.

If you need quick and efficient water damage restoration services in Fort Worth, SERVPRO is here to help. We have a dedicated team of IICRC-trained technicians on standby to respond to your emergency. Our products are up to par with industry standards, thereby ensuring a seamless restoration process.

Water damage restoration fans and air movers are essential for water removal in a flooded store. These high volume fans and air movers create a powerful airflow that moves air quickly around the affected space, promoting evaporation of moisture from under carpets and behind walls, sub-flooring, upholstery, and more.

Water damage becomes a major issue when there is significant flooding in the retail store. This can be caused by a faulty sprinkler system, burst pipe, a sewage backup, or storm flooding. Some 30 percent of all property claims come from water damage restoration, including loss of equipment, inventory, store fixtures, and even furnishings. Immediate drying and dehumidification are important to reduce repair costs, which can necessitate a complete shutdown.

SERVPRO water damage restoration experts provide the quickest recovery while minimizing repair costs, often with little disruption of unaffected areas. Our services also include odor removal and mold remediation. Apart from restoring the building itself, we can also take care of water-damaged carpet and upholstery.

The first part of the restoration process involves inspection by qualified technicians establishing goals, priorities, tasks, and schedules. This is followed by flood damage cleanup, which includes initial cleaning, sanitation, debris removal, and relocation of building contents. We also carry out water extraction from walls, floors, and ceilings using truck-mounted vacuum systems. We have state-of-the-art equipment for carrying out odor removal in hard-to-reach surfaces. Finally, we monitor and maintain proper moisture, humidity, and temperature levels after drying.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources


If your retail store sustains water damage, you can count on SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth for quick and efficient commercial water removal services. We have a wide range of equipment for proper water extraction, as well as highly trained and highly experienced technicians who can handle the job.

Water Damage Abatement At Fort Worth Student Union

9/7/2017 (Permalink)

Common areas for students to collaborate on projects and study are a necessary part of college life. Get them dry after an incident with SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Technicians Quickly Get a Flooded Area Dry to Prevent Any Secondary Damages

Study spaces, book and gift stores, snack bars, and recreational activities are all part of the student experience at Fort Worth institutes of higher learning. When portions of the student union go underwater because of failed plumbing, a full-service water damage recovery company needs to step up to restore the college ambiance.
 
A water main burst in the student union of a university, the commercial water damage in Fort Worth starts inconveniencing hundreds of students and soaking books and merchandise. The two primary concerns are a speedy return to a comfortable study and recreational area for students and a solution for waterlogged spirit wear and books. We offer fast and professional water removal and restoration services and have access to drying and recovery services for merchandise.
 
Once the SERVPRO team is made aware that a crisis occurred at the union, a well-qualified team of water damage mitigation specialists and all the equipment necessary is dispatched to the building. Our work crew follows the same routine each time it arrives at a water event. First, the area is surveyed for safety, power disconnected if there is any chance of shocking the rescue team. Water is removed with truck-mounted pumps and extractors. Moisture levels are measured and monitored as industrial sized air movers and dehumidifiers do their work.
 
While the area is dried out, other members of the crew work to sort the merchandise soaked in the union’s bookstore. Items like sweatshirts, tees and the like can be laundered and dried. Perhaps the staff of the bookstore will reduce the prices, but the spirit wear will survive the water damage nearly intact. The books and school supplies are a different matter.
 
To dry out papers requires a special process called freeze drying. It is a somewhat expensive procedure, so it may not be cost effective for all items. On the other hand, the files and records in the store may be important enough to use the freeze drying or sublimation technique. Regardless, the SERVPRO crew keeps a careful inventory of items damaged, discarded and revived for insurance and tax purposes.
 
One call to SERVPRO of Northeast Ft. Worth gets the ball rolling to dry out commercial spaces, large and small. Our number is (817) 741-5737 and is staffed 24/7.

Commercial Storm Damage in Fort Worth

4/27/2017 (Permalink)

The weather has been very unpredictable the past few weeks in our area.  We have experience heavy rains in a short period of time causing the sewer systems to back up and streets to flood. 

If you see there is a flash flood watch, this means that a flash flood is possible.  A flash flood warning means that a flood is about to happen or already taking place.  If a flash flood occurs, you should make sure everyone gets to higher ground as quickly as possible. 

Your business can prepare for any potential disaster, including flash floods. Keep all essential equipment and documents elevated from the floor.  Ideally, they should be stored on the second floor of the building or higher.  Back-up electronic data daily to cloud storage or to an external drive so the files can still be accessed in the event of a disaster.  

It is a good idea to have a battery-powered radio available on-site.  In case of a power outage, you and your staff can keep updated on the current conditions.  (FEMA) The Federal Emergency Management Agency provides a list of recommended supplies in the event of a disaster, such as a flashlight and first aid kit. 

You can also check with the National Weather Service to get more tips on safety during flooding

SERVPRO of Northeast Fort Worth can help your business get back on track after flooding or other disasters. Call us today for more information or a free inspection (817) 741-5737
