Call SERVPRO of Metrocrest to help with your fire restoration needs (972) 233-8400.

It’s important to have a fire escape plan that the entire family understands, in case of an emergency. Home fires can be very dangerous and there are several things you can do to prevent them:

Do not ever leave heat sources like candles, stoves, and space heaters unattended. **Also, don’t leave them on overnight or while you sleep.**

If you are going to smoke, try to smoke outside. If you are indoors, do not leave smoking materials where children can access them and fully extinguish your cigarette or cigar before throwing it away.

Make sure your smoke detectors work. Replace the batteries every year to keep them in top condition.

Mold Prevention During the Winter Months for the Dallas Area

2/11/2021 (Permalink)

Call the professionals at SERVPRO of Metrocrest if you need mold remediation. (972) 233-8400.

The wet season in the winter months is one of the best times of year for molds to grow and expand. Often mold is contained near sources of water where it can easily grow and reproduce. As it grows, mold can breakdown and compromise the integrity and strength of the source in which it lives.

Mold spores are microscopic and are naturally found in the air we breathe indoors and outdoors. When large amounts of spores grow, one’s health may be compromised. Mold can be killed, but if it is not removed properly, it can remain in the area just cleaned and the dry spores can be released into the air. Mold remediation services can help eliminate the mold in your home and personal items affected by water damage.

If you require mold remediation services in your home or business give SERVPRO of Metrocrest a call! (972) 233-8400. We will return your home or business back to “Like it never even happened.”

Is your North Dallas home ready for the cold weather?

2/10/2021 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of Metrocrest for your water restoration needs. (972) 233-8400

Winter is in full swing this week in the Dallas area. Whatever part of North Dallas you are in, most people are experiencing very cold or freezing temperatures this time of year. Everyone wonders what needs to be done to protect their pipes in freezing temperatures. It is important to protect your pipes and your plumbing system in cold weather.
If you will be away from home for days at a time, make sure that all of your pipes are kept warm, especially in spaces that receive little or no heat. If any pipes will stay exposed to freezing temperatures, open one faucet with a very small drip to keep water moving through the pipes.  
On the outside of your home, cover up your outside faucets with foam or towels to insulate them.   
When water freezes in a pipe, it expands the same way a soda can would. If it expands enough, the pipe bursts and could result in serious damage. In North Dallas, just like other warm climate areas, our pipes are more vulnerable to freezing because most of them are in areas outside of the main insulation. Pipes and valves on outside walls or in the attics are the most common trouble spots.


If you experience a water damage due to frozen pipes, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400 to help with your water restoration needs.

SERVPRO of Metrocrest is ready for Wind and Rain Damage in Dallas, TX

2/9/2021 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of Metrocrest for your storm damage needs. (972) 233-8400

SERVPRO of Metrocrest knows, as we all do, that strong winds are usually coupled with heavy rains here in the Dallas areas.  SERVPRO of Metrocrest is always ready to respond to your water damage needs, residential or commercial, relating to wind and flooding rain.

Damaging Winds Basics

What are damaging winds?

Damaging winds are often called “straight-line” winds to differentiate the damage they cause from tornado damage. Strong thunderstorm winds can come from several different processes. Most thunderstorm winds that cause damage at the ground are a result of outflow generated by a thunderstorm downdraft. Damaging winds are classified as those exceeding 50-60 mph. 

Are damaging winds really a big deal?

Damage from severe thunderstorm winds account for half of all severe reports in the lower 48 states and is more common than damage from tornadoes. Wind speeds can reach up to 100 mph and can produce a damage path extending for hundreds of miles. 

Who is at risk from damaging winds?

Since most thunderstorms produce some straight-line winds as a result of outflow generated by the thunderstorm downdraft, anyone living in thunderstorm-prone areas of the world is at risk for experiencing this hazard. 

People living in mobile homes are especially at risk for injury and death. Even anchored mobile homes can be seriously damaged when winds gust over 80 mph.

If your home has suffered from wind damage, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.
