Commercial Buildings

1/15/2020 (Permalink)

Commercial buildings are damaged more often than one would think. Since there are many people going in and out of the building throughout the day, there are multiple things that could happen. Commercial buildings are usually several stories high. So, this means there will be restrooms on every floor along with washing machines, sinks, water fountains, etcetera. With each use of the restrooms or water fountains, the higher the flood risk is. Not to mention rain leakage through the roof or a busted pipe. In a commercial building, flooding is a high risk and can be difficult to manage and correct but luckily, SERVPRO is here to help!

SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties want you to know that no matter the size or extent of the damage, we can fix it. Call us today!

The 3 Water Categories

1/6/2020 (Permalink)

Water Categories This picture represents three examples of water categories.

In the water mitigation world, there are three categories of water. When dealing with these categories, we must be thorough. The first is category 1, clean water from a precise source. For example, a sink overflowing into the bathroom floor. If the floor is not contaminated with anything dirty and there are no pets. We would probably consider this a “1.” A category 2 would contain a significant amount of biological contaminates. If this water were consumed it could cause sickness or discomfort. This would be something like a dishwasher leak. While the water may not look super dirty to the eye, the chemicals in the water from the dishwashing machine could be harmful to humans and animals. The most harmful is a category 3. Category 3 is grossly contaminated and can contain pathogenic or toxigenic agents. More often than not, the water we deal with is a “1” or a “2.” Call SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties today if you have questions. (817)596-8714

How Can a Storm Affect Your Home?

12/30/2019 (Permalink)

Leaking Window This is a leaky window (one of the common issues caused by storms).

Storms. We know that they are destructive and can become dangerous, especially when water or other debris manages to get inside your home. If this were to happen, a number of issues could occur. If, for example, water enters your home, mold growth, lifted floor boards, damaged furniture, wet walls or insulation could be in effect. These are the most common occurences. But, no worries, SERVPRO is here to help. Here are some useful tips!

You can prevent some of these things from happening by “checking your home for weaknesses”. By this we mean, check your windows for any leakage from previous rain, remove any dead branches from trees around your house, secure outdoor items, and periodically have your roof inspected.

SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties provides the services to find & fix these problems. Be sure to give us a call if you have any concerns regarding your home (817)496-8714.

Let Us Inspect Your Home For Mold

12/30/2019 (Permalink)

Mold Under carpet This is mold that was undetected until the carpet was pulled up and revealed a large amount of mold growing.

Mold can grow pretty much anywhere. Carpet, underneath tile or wood, and many other places. It begins when a surface becomes saturated with water. But, if a surface is quickly dried and restored, then the chances of mold growth are dropped significantly. The real worry comes from a surface that has been wet for a long period of time. In many cases, unfortunately, mold is not visible or noticeable until it begins emitting a bad odor. Once mold has reached this point, it can become dangerous as it releases toxins in the air that we breathe. This can lead to illness and in some cases asthma.

 Since mold is preventable, we highly recommend having one our SERVPRO professionals come and inspect your home. This way, we can prevent this from happening or remove any hidden mold. SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties is here to provide you with our services and bring peace of mind to those in a moldy situation. If you suspect mold, or have any questions or concerns, please give us a call. (817)596-8714

Frozen Water Pipes!

11/27/2019 (Permalink)

Frozen Water Pipes

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!” That means cold weather and high risk of frozen water pipes. If the water pipes in your home run anywhere without electrical heating, or the heating system fails, they are more prone to freeze.

You may be wondering, “why does this matter?”, or “won’t the water in the pipes eventually melt again?” Here’s what you need to know! Frozen pipes are a danger to your home because they can burst from the high amounts of pressure.

 If this happens, water could leak into your house, cause damage to your belongings, or mold could start growing. Here are some tips on preventing a frozen pipe.

1) During winter, turn your thermostat up a few degrees.

2) Open some cabinets in your bathrooms to allow warm air circulation to the pipes in the walls.

3) If water pipes run through the garage, keep the garage doors shut.

Checking Your Gutter System

11/25/2019 (Permalink)

Checking Your Gutter System

Gutter systems are very important for your home. Gutters catch rainwater and direct it to the downspouts and into your home’s drainage system. This process protects the foundation of your house. It is very important that you check your gutter system at least once a month, especially during the rainier seasons.

If the gutters or downspouts are not functioning correctly, issues may occur. Without proper drainage, the soil alongside your home will start to wear away or water may leak into your basement or crawl spaces. Some signs to look for in a broken gutter system are standing water inside the gutters, improper drainage, or pooling at the downspouts. High winds during storms can highly damage gutters as well.

If you discover that your gutter system is failing, find water in a crawlspace of your home, or simply want us to come out and inspect, our SERVPRO technicians are happy to help. Call SERVPRO of Parker & Northeast Hood Counties now!

Foggy weather

3/4/2019 (Permalink)

With the foggy weather comes moisture and mold. The warm weather we enjoy so much is saturated by a significant amount of water, which generated the excessive moisture around you. While many fear what the humidity means for their hair or their skin, have you thought about what it means for your home?

In humid climates, homes run serious risk of damage from collecting all of the moisture the air carries. A common result of high humidity levels in your home is mold. Mold grows quickly, in warm, damp conditions and can fester into an entire colony within 24 hours of their spores attaching themselves to surfaces and feeding. As mold grows and spreads throughout your home, allergens and irritants are released into the air which creates a dangerous situation for you and your family. The allergens and irritants can become toxic, causing respiratory problems and other health issues. That's why it's critically important to take steps in preventing mold growth in the first place, We recommend starting with a dehumidifier for your home. Using a dehumidifier will help you maintain optimal humidity levels that are both healthy and comfortable. Running fans, and checking up on your HVAC system will also help keep the humidity down. Make sure everything is running smoothly and functioning properly to help circulate air flow, and if you need help with an inspection you can always call SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties.

Oh No My Water Heater Broke!!!

3/4/2019 (Permalink)

A water heater breaks, the sink won't stop running or some other clean water source causes damage to your home. You've called SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties and we're on our way, but in the meantime there are some things you can do to help mitigate.

Shut off the water source

Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building

Remove as much excess water as possible

Wipe excess water from wood furniture

Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpet

Remove paintings and place them in a safe/dry place

You may have noticed I said 'clean water source' in the beginning of this post. Water from toilets, outside the home and any other contaminated source pose a different danger. When water damage has been caused by contaminated water we suggest avoiding all contact and washing your hands thoroughly after contact with contaminated items.

It's Freezing!

1/10/2019 (Permalink)

During these cold winter months, keeping warm is a necessity. Keeping your pipes warm is just as important for your household/business. One of the most prominent ways that households flood is because pipes freeze and the metal becomes hard and compressed over night. Once the water is turned back on, the pipes heat up, expand, and bust. This is what leads to flooding water in the house and a massive mess. Nobody wants that! It is important to keep your pipes warm during these winter months to avoid this predicament. House floods can cause some major problems especially during the holiday season. If you have any questions on how to avoid this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us at (817) 596-8714.

Mold Remediation

12/24/2017 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur just about everywhere. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
