How To Create an Emergency Readiness Plan with Property Damage Restoration Experts Like SERVPRO

9/27/2021 (Permalink)

Blog Summary: The team at SERVPRO of Coppell and West Addison provides cost-effective property damage restoration for Texas, and a foolproof emergency readiness plan can make it far simpler when the time comes to call in the professionals.

SERVPRO is a multinational property damage restoration chain with branches in more than 1,700 locations. The company works at a local level through its franchises, and the pooled resources help it tackle any emergency restoration as the action happens. SERVPRO’s trained teams handle fire and smoke damage, wind damage, storm damage, burst pipes, and more; twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

SERVPRO Recommends Four Aspects For a Foolproof Emergency Readiness Plan

The local experts at SERVPRO know that a natural disaster is a challenging time for everyone, especially if property damage comes into play. These professionals do everything they can to make the property damage restoration process as easy as possible, including working directly with insurance companies. One of their top recommendations is to have a foolproof emergency plan in place before these disasters strike.

Here are four considerations for a business creating an emergency readiness plan:

#1 Prepare a Custom Checklist for Fire Restoration or Storm Damage Restoration

When a catastrophe happens, people quickly become lost, confused, and hopeless. Preparation can make anyone feel more in control of the events, even in disastrous circumstances. Each home or business owner will have a unique plan for the premises, but adding a professional property damage restoration company like SERVPRO to that regimen is an excellent place to start. 

As one of the top restoration companies, SERVPRO prides itself on offering some of the best services to its customers, regardless of the scope of the damage. The company has been running for more than 50 years, so Texas residents know that their storm or fire damage restoration services are dependable.  Whether residents need help in five months or five years, SERVPRO will be ready and waiting.

#2 Time is of the Essence With Water Damage Restoration

One of the most important variables in any emergency preparedness plan is time, especially with flooding or other water damage restoration. Standing water wreaks havoc as it seeps through walls, between shingles, and into basements. A plan in case of a fire can save family members’ lives, just like an emergency action plan for floods or catastrophic plumbing leaks can save homes, belongings, and valuables.

#3 Commercial Cleaning and Restoration Can Restore Cities

When a natural disaster happens on a larger scale, entire towns and cities might be reeling in its wake. A robust property damage restoration provider like SERVPRO is instrumental in getting homes and businesses in these areas safe and functional in the aftermath. They also provide impressive commercial cleaning skills to move the repair and restoration process quickly.

When disaster destroys a home or business, salvaging important documents and possessions can feel impossible. Don’t worry; experienced companies like SERVPRO offer professional drying services. The benefits of these services also extend to items like irreplaceable documents and restoration services for other belongings or furnishings.

#4 Check the SERVPRO Readiness App

Technology makes action plans easier, and SERVPRO offers just such an app. It helps home and business owners access their “ready plans” from any device during an emergency. The Ready Plan app is completely free to install and use, connecting those who need it to SERVPRO’s help and storing important information like utility shut-off locations, emergency contacts, and more.

Call SERVPRO of Coppell and West Addison at (972) 233-8400 today, or connect to them on the app or via SERVPROofcoppellandwestaddison@gmail.com for professional property damage restoration and emergency response services.

Restore Your Home Safely with Professional Mold Remediation from SERVPRO in Addison, TX

8/12/2021 (Permalink)

Blog Summary: Working with an experienced mold remediation company is vital to prevent spores from spreading. Here are four reasons to choose SERVPRO of Coppell and West Addison for mold removal services in Addison, TX. 



When it comes to mold removal, it’s best to work with certified professionals. Improper mold remediation can spread spores to other parts of a building, and mold is notorious for hiding in hard-to-reach spaces. Even a small patch of unaddressed mold alongside high humidity can quickly lead to the need for mold removal all over again.

Mold remediation experts like the team at SERVPRO of Coppell and West Addison also know the state laws concerning inspection, documentation, and appropriate removal processes. Here are a few more reasons to turn to SERVPRO for mold remediation services in Addison, TX, and the surrounding community.

4 Reasons Why SERVPRO is the Best Choice for Mold Remediation Services

#1 SERVPRO Has Highly Trained Technicians that Understand Mold

While some mold services might advertise “full mold removal,” SERVPRO’s technicians know better than to make claims like that. Mold moves around by relying on tiny spores that are invisible to the naked eye. It is impossible to fully remove all the mold spores in a space.

Mold spores are everywhere. They can be brought in on clothes, pets, float in through open windows and doors, and even get pulled into HVAC systems. Mold spores will attach to moist environments and begin multiplying rapidly. While mold spores are found in every building in Addison, removing established colonies and reducing moisture levels can prevent them from becoming problematic.

#2 SERVPRO Knows the Steps to Take to Remediate Mold Properly

The first step SERVPRO’s technicians take to remediate mold in a home or business is to find the moisture source that allows the mold spores to multiply. Essentially, the mold needs moisture to thrive. When that moisture source is found and removed, the mold won't be able to keep a foothold.

#3 SERVPRO Has the Tools to Get the Job Done Right

Advanced technology and tools allow the SERVPRO team to detect mold in places that home and business owners might not see on their own. They also have mold containment devices, like negative air chambers, to prevent further mold contamination. This helps stop mold spores in their tracks.

After detection and containment of the mold, the SERVPRO team will begin using specialized air filtration tools like HEPA vacuums to help catch any released spores. Tools like this reduce the spread of mold spores and stop them from finding another damp place to hide and grow in.

Advanced antifungal and antimicrobial treatments will be brought in to reduce the mold colony. If the mold has damaged the drywall or carpeting in the area, the SERVPRO team knows how to remove and dispose of the materials safely.

#4 SERVPRO Restores Items Affected by Mold

After addressing the mold growth with a multi-faceted approach, the SERVPRO team will begin to clean and restore the items in the space. That could include furniture, clothing, home decor, curtains, and more. SERVPRO even offers deodorization as part of the mold remediation process to help remove musty, moldy odors.

SERVPRO of Coppell and West Addison offers a range of clean-up and restoration services, including water damage restoration, fire restoration, mold remediation, and storm damage restoration. Water damage and mold often go hand in hand. The SERVPRO team will know what to look for.

Is your home ready for the winter weather?

12/6/2020 (Permalink)

Let SERVPRO of Metrocrest help you if disaster strikes because of cold weather. (972) 233-8400. https://www.SERVPROmetrocrest.com/

Here in the Dallas area the temperatures are getting low. Are you prepared for this kind of weather? Cold weather can have a huge impact on your property if you are not ready. While you cannot control the weather, you can take the appropriate steps to be prepared.   

It is important to protect water pipes from freezing by simply allowing water to drip when temperatures dip below freezing. If pipes are under a cabinet, leave the cabinet doors open, allowing warm inside air to circulate around the pipes.

Inspect your property, especially walkways and parking spots, for proper drainage to alleviate a potential flood hazard.

Make sure your chimney flute is cleaned and the vent is open. With the cold weather comes fires in fireplaces.

Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Winter is the time most house fires happen. It’s the time of year when we’re blasting the furnace and building fires. We are also much more likely to have our home closed tight, so carbon monoxide is a much bigger hazard.

Check your drainage. Make sure the soil around your foundation has not settled, creating areas for water to pool at your foundation. If you find a low spot, simply fill it in with some soil. 

Seal your masonry and hard surfaces. Your patio needs attention, too. If you have a concrete patio, driveways, or walkways, make sure they are protected as well.

Paint, caulk, and seal exterior wood. All the wood trim on the exterior of your home needs to be protected from the elements. 

Check your home’s heating and air conditioning system. Before the weather turns cold, take this time to change your filters, at the very least. Better yet, investigate an annual maintenance agreement. It is much better to find an HVAC problem in the moderate temperatures of the fall than it is to find your furnace does not work on a frigid winter day.

Shut down the pool and the sprinkler system and drain outside faucets. Make sure your pool is properly shut down and prepare the system for winter.

Make sure your attic does not become a critter hotel. It is going to get cold out and your attic is the perfect winter home for squirrels and birds. These critters can cause a lot of damage and potentially some health problems.  

Cover your patio furniture. Get your patio furniture protected, but make sure you wait until a clear, warm day to cover it, so you don’t trap moisture on it.

If winter weather strikes your property call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

SERVPRO of Metrocrest are the experts at Handling Mold in the Dallas Area

8/5/2020 (Permalink)

If your home or office suffers from mold, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest to help with your mold remediation. 9972) 233-8400

The technicians at SERVPRO of Metrocrest undergo comprehensive training to identify areas of mold and how to safely remove it. Our technicians use an array of moisture detection equipment to locate areas of raised moisture behind walls, under floors, and within ceilings.

Depending on the level of infestation in your home or office, our technicians will remove items too damaged for restoration and then bring the humidity down to levels too low for mold growth. We do this through the use of professional grade drying and dehumidifying equipment. We also spray antimicrobial solution to help stop the mold growth on all the affected areas. There are some instances in which hard scrubbing, sanding or soda blasting on surfaces will be needed to remove the mold colonies.

When mold damage has persisted for an extended period of time the severity of the damage to your home or office might be too considerable to overcome. In these cases, the only suitable solution is to remove these elements and replace them with new materials.

If your home or office suffers from mold damage call the professionals at SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Signs of water damage in your bathroom

7/27/2020 (Permalink)

If your property suffers from a bathroom water damage contact SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Water damage in your bathroom is not always easy to find since water is a normal occurrence in bathrooms.

There are many hidden culprits such as cracked shower tiles, or leaky seals around a toilet bowl where tiny leaks can end up causing large amounts of damage to the floorboards, walls, and ceilings.

Knowing what to look for is vital for any property owners. The following tips will prevent extensive water damage in bathrooms.

A Soft Floor

If you know your home was built with a wooden floor truss system, the sub floor is most likely made of plywood. If the plywood is subjected to moisture, the subfloor will rot, and the floor will begin to feel soft or spongy in places. This could lead to your entire floor collapsing if left unattended.

Trust Your Nose

If you smell something musty or damp, it could be due to moisture damage lurking behind the walls. Although many older homes have this smell, rooms with actual damage have a more prominent smell. Sometimes you might not be able to see it but be sure to trust your nose.

Warped Walls

When drywall absorbs water, it begins to swell and becomes soft. This is another clear sign that may point to an extensive problem. Over time, the damaged area starts to crumble, especially around the baseboards. If you run your hand across the wall and it feels uneven or looks crooked when you look at it, you could have water damage behind the walls.

Visible Mold

Mold is built from the inside out so that by the time you can see it, no matter how much you scrub, the problem will not go away. You will need the help of our specialists to return your home to a safe place for the whole family.

If your property suffers from a bathroom water damage, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest to help make things, “Like it never even happened.” (972) 233-8400.

Time is money in the workplace. Both employers and employees cannot afford lost work time due to sickness.
What can employers do to promote a healthy work environment in light of COVID-19 or any other infectious diseases?
A simple and efficient path to promote workplace health includes the following items:
1. Encourage hand washing with real soap for at least 20 seconds.
2. Put hand sanitizer in numerous stations around the office or facility.
3. Provide disinfectant wipes for employees to wipe down surfaces such as keyboards, mouse, desk, chair, pens, stylus, pencils, touch screens, etc.
4. Allow employees to wear disposable gloves.
5. Remind employees of the company's sick policy. Sharing COVID-19 or Influenza with workspace mates or the production crew could be very costly to all involved parties.
6. Coordinate with the facility cleaning team regarding special measures to be taken during flu season or during periods of significant employee sickness.
These measures are very basic yet they go a long way to keep the workplace healthy and happy.

Time is money in the workplace. Both employers and employees cannot afford lost work time due to sickness.

Workplace Specific Health Strategies

What can employers do to promote a healthy work environment in light of COVID-19 or any other infectious diseases?

A simple and efficient path to promote workplace health includes the following items:

  1. Encourage hand washing with real soap for at least 20 seconds.
  2. Put hand sanitizer in numerous stations around the office or facility.
  3. Provide disinfectant wipes for employees to wipe down surfaces such as keyboards, mouse, desk, chair, pens, stylus, pencils, touch screens, etc.
  4. Allow employees to wear disposable gloves.
  5. Remind employees of the company's sick policy. Sharing COVID-19 or Influenza with workspace mates or the production crew could be very costly to all involved parties.
  6. Coordinate with the facility cleaning team regarding special measures to be taken during flu season or during periods of significant employee sickness.

These measures are very basic yet they go a long way to keep the workplace healthy and happy.

When is the right time to call in a professional cleaning service to clean, disinfect, and sanitize the workplace?

Seeking consultation and assistance from a highly trained, well-informed, and experienced cleaning professional to address workplace health and hygiene is both proactive and pre-emptive. Losing multiple teams or crew members to an outbreak of an infectious disease for a week or two could crush production efficiencies. An office or sales force outbreak could slow or halt sales generation and depress a revenue cycle. The cost of an absentee employee is so much more than paid sick leave.

Qualified cleaning professional like SERVPRO of Metrocrest can provide prevention strategies for a business as well as for a school, daycare or church. People recognize SERVPRO as the industry leader for water and fire damage restoration and disaster recovery.

When a water damage happens, regardless of the source, you need a professional service like SERVPRO of Metrocrest. We have years of experience and training to return your home to normal as quickly as possible.

Significant water damage in your home is not something many people even consider possible. Broken plumbing such as a leaking faucet can cause thousands of dollars in damage before the homeowner is even aware of it. Fortunately, SERVPRO of Metrocrest has the skills and equipment to take care of it. 

First, we inspect the damage of your home. Once that is done, we remove any standing water with our water extractors.

Our next step is to examine the property no longer under water. There is always some water trapped in carpets and wood floors, so our technicians will use special vacuums designed to remove water without damaging the nape of the carpet or surface of the wood. If the standing water was high enough, there might be some amount behind the walls as well. If we find excess water, we use extraction wands to draw it out. 

After all the water has been extracted our technicians will set up drying equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers to assist and quicken the natural drying process.

If you have a water damage big or small call SERVPRO of Metrocrest. We are a 24/7 restoration company, always here to help!

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

Spring Cleaning Time in Farmers Branch, TX

Call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400

It's spring cleaning time in Farmers Branch, Texas!  This is the season when we brush off the stunted growth of winter by cleaning every surface. This annual ritual will restore and renovate the appearance of your home or office, but there is another even more important reason for performing these tasks - your family/co-worker’s health.

Did you know that your home/office is a huge germ collector in the winter months? The windows are closed, and air doesn't move much, so when people come down with colds and flu, germs have as heyday bouncing around and collecting on every surface. This greater exposure to germs impacts the healthfulness of our homes/Office.

Once those warm spring breezes begin to blow, lift the windows so clean air can fill your home/office and replace the dust and stale air winter creates. A good and thorough house/office cleaning, including those areas that we typically clean less often like carpets and rugs, curtains, upholstered furniture, tops of door frames, can help remove the dirt, allergens and germs floating around your home to make it healthier and safer for all who live and visit there. SERVPRO of Metrocrest can come in and take care of all your spring cleaning needs. Call us at (972) 233-8400 to schedule your carpet and duct cleanings.

Cold temperatures can take a toll on your home or business. It is important that you prepare your home for the cold weather to limit risks of potential damage. When preforming maintenance and ensuring that you are limiting risks of damage it is important to be thorough while inspecting your home or place of business.

Make sure that you replace any broken windows and re-putty any loose windowpanes, seal around windows and door trims or use weather stripping for windows that are opened. Check in the attic of your home; weather strip & insulate the access door from your attic into your home, seal around your chimney with metal flashing or a high temperature sealant, seal around plumbing vents, seal any holes between the heated space and the attic and insulate any exposed water pipes.

Does Your Coppell, TX Home Have A Mold Problem?

11/18/2019 (Permalink)

If you find mold damage in your home of business, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. 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.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

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.

10 MOST COMMON PLACES FOR MOLD GROWTH IN YOUR HOME

5/9/2019 (Permalink)

When it comes to your home or business mold is not something you want to mess around with. Mold can become extremely hazardous to your health, and if left untreated can cause costly structural damage to building materials. If you find mold growing in your home, it’s important to call in a professional company, Like SERVPRO of Metrocrest, who has the experience and expertise to have the mold completely removed by using the correct process.

Mold is a living organism that belongs to the fungi family. There are over 100,000 species of mold, and all of them can be harmful if not properly taken care of.

If oxygen and moisture are present, mold can virtually grow on any organic surface such as paper, wood, insulation, food, and carpet padding.  Because mold will eat or digest what it is growing on, if left untreated, mold can even cause structural damage to buildings and furnishings.

10 Places to Watch for Mold Growth in Your Home:

  • Underneath kitchen sinks
  • Attics & Crawl Spaces
  • Underneath or behind refrigerators
  • Behind walls that also house plumbing
  • Stacks of damp or wet newspaper or cardboard boxes
  • Around air-conditioning units
  • Wallboard or around windows that leak
  • Under carpeting that may have become wet
  • Bathroom shower or under sink

You can prevent damage to your home or business, its contents, save money, and avoid potential health problems by controlling moisture and eliminating mold growth.

Reminder: With any type of water damage in the home drying the affected areas within three days or less will help prevent the growth of toxic mold that can make you extremely sick.

We hope you never have to experience mold in your home, but if it does happen contact SERVPRO of Metrocrest and speak to one of our experienced team members who can help you quickly find a solution to your mold issue, and make it Like it never even happened.”

Getting your property prepared for the cold in Addison, Texas.

12/6/2018 (Permalink)

Cold temperatures can take a toll on your home or business. It is important that you prepare your home for the cold weather to limit risks of potential damage. When preforming maintenance and insuring that you are limiting risks of damage it is important to be thorough while inspecting your home or place of business. Install foam-rubber gaskets behind electrical outlets & switch covers on exterior walls. If you don’t use your fireplace, plug the flue with an inflatable plug. Make sure that you replace any broken windows and re-putty any loose window panes, seal around windows and door trims or use weather stripping for windows that are opened. Check in the attic of your home; weather strip & insulate the access door from your attic into your home, seal around your chimney with metal flashing or a high temperature sealant, seal around plumbing vents, seal any holes between the heated space and the attic and insulate any exposed water pipes. If water damage occurs in your home due to extreme weather or anything else, make sure to call SERVPRO of Metrocrest to help with all your water restoration needs.
