SERVPRO of East Dallas water extraction team We have the equipment ready for any size job!

Over the weekend SERVPRO of East Dallas was called out to a local business in Deep Ellum. This business suffered from water damage due to a storm surge. The rain water came in through the roof and soaked the floor.

When we were called out there was standing water throughout the whole building. The water must first be removed and water service must be turned off. The water damage extraction process could take some time, depending on how server the water is. 

Once the water is removed the equipment can start being installed. This requires air movers, fans, dehumidifiers with water monitoring. This process may take some days to remove any water that is within the floors and walls. Different types of reading tools can tell us when all water is removed. SERVPRO of East Dallas was able to restore the building and bring the water moisture to zero! Give us a call today, we love to help out!

Fire Extinguisher Tips

SERVPRO East Dallas SERVPRO of East Dallas Fire Tips

Always be ready when it comes to fire safety, these tips could save lives!. Enjoy time with your loved ones, and keep yourself and your family safe from fire.
Here is a significant fact that we should consider in our spaces.

How many fire extinguishers should I have?
Every home needs at least one fire extinguisher, and most should have at least two or three. The number of fire extinguishers you should have in your home depends on the size of your house, if you have a garage or workshop, and if your household is multi-level or not.
The minimum recommendation is to have a single extinguisher rated 2-A:10-B: C or higher in your kitchen, garage, or workshops, near doors used as an escape route, and on every level of your home.

Flames need fuel, oxygen, and heat to burn. Fire extinguishers are designed to remove one of these elements by applying an agent that either cools the burning fuel or releases or displaces the surrounding oxygen. Fire extinguishers contain either water or a smothering material, such as CO@; by pulling out the safety pin and depressing the lever at the top of the cylinder, the fire extinguishing material is released under high pressure.

Don't hesitate to call us; we would love to take care of you! SERVPRO of East Dallas is always at your service

Storm Damage in Casa View

Technicians Arriving Storm Damage Isn't Always Pretty, But SERVPRO Can Help!

We know that storms are always chaotic and that knowledge is invaluable when a disaster approaches; having a plan to keep us safe is of the utmost importance, so here are some tips about thunderstorms.

thunderstorm is considered severe if it produces hail at least 1 inch in diameter or has 58 miles per hour wind gusts.

Every thunderstorm produces lightning, killing more people each year than tornadoes or hurricanes. Heavy rain from thunderstorms can cause flash flooding, and high winds can damage homes and blow down trees and utility poles, causing widespread power outages.

Severe thunderstorm watch:

Severe thunderstorms are possible in and near the watch area. Stay informed and be ready to act if a strict thunderstorm warning is issued. 

Warnings indicate imminent danger to life and property. Unfortunately, people are killed or seriously injured by severe thunderstorms every year despite warnings. While some did not hear the warning, others listened to the warning and ignored it. The information in this section, combined with timely watches and warnings about severe weather, may help save lives. 

The above is of the utmost importance since sometimes we do not measure the great chaos that this can cause; hoping you consider all these factors.

If you are in that situation, don't hesitate to contact us, and we'll be right away.

SERVPRO East Dallas Black Water Is Extremely Dangerous, Stay Away!

Should you experience a flood in your home after a storm or otherwise, our team of technicians will inspect your home or business to determine the appropriate plan of action for the type of water encountered. It's very possible you have 'black water" in your home that mustn't be touched.

"Black water", aka category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided. Examples include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

A Leaky Roof Can Cause Long Lasting Mold Damage

SERVPRO East Dallas Helps Storm Damage We are here to help when your leaky roof starts to cause more damage.

After heavy storms, it's important to check your attic for moisture. Mold can grow in a matter of days if an area has the right conditions. After a heavy storm in the East Dallas area, a home owner was hearing a drip coming from the roof into the attic. The drip caused just enough moisture to cause mold to grow in the attic. If a leaky roof that has caused water damage is not properly fixed, "secondary damage" (mold growth) can occur. The certified professionals at SERVPRO of East Dallas were called in to address both the moisture and the mold issues. SERVPRO of East Dallas is mold certified and able to perform mold remediation as well as the water restoration. In addition, we were able to work with the home owner's insurance! If you have experienced water damage and/or secondary damage due to an area storm, please do not hesitate to call right away. We are here to help.

SERVPRO East Dallas SERVPRO of East Dallas has the equipment necessary to complete any size disaster.

If your home or business has suffered a water damage event, simply cleaning up the water and opening up the windows will not completely dry the space, leaving your home or business vulnerable to future mold growth (known as secondary damage).  SERVPRO of East Dallas uses industrial grade dehumidifiers and fans to completely dry your home or business.  SERVPRO of East Dallas uses moister testing devices to make sure your walls, closets, and floors are dry before we leave your home and close out the job.  In addition to drying, commercial grade anti-fungal treatments are applied in order to prevent mold from forming.

If your home or business has suffered a fire damage event, air scrubbers are brought in to the area to "scrub" the air clean and remove the chemical and smoke odor. In addition to air scrubbers, special cleaning agents are used to save as many smoke-affected items as possible in your home or business.

If your home or business has suffered a water damage, fire damage, or mold growth event, please do not hesitate to call us today.

Candles are a great way to light up, add nice decor, or make a home smell like fresh flowers. However, According to the NFPA, from 2014-2018, there were an estimated 7,610 house fires that were started by candles per year that caused an annual average of 81 deaths, 677 injuries, and $278 million in property damage. Save your Casa View home with some of these alternatives! 

Flame-less candles

For those who just want the aesthetic of a candle and no scent, flame-less candles are a great option! They are typically battery-operated and give the same flame-like feature as real candles. 

Wax warmer

Wax warmers are a great alternative because you can get that amazing scent that comes from real candles without the hazard. Warmers are typically either battery or outlet operated to melt the wax.

Diffuser

Calling all of our essential oil fans, this one is for you! With hundreds of combinations to try, diffusers are a great option for the whole house. 

Stick diffusers

The most low maintenance option is a stick diffuser. Put your scent in the vase and let the sticks do the work. 

If you still plan to opt for a candle, be sure to trim the wick before each use to minimize sparking, place the candle where it can’t fall or be knocked over, and always blow out the candle anytime you leave the room or plan to leave the home.

SERVPRO of East Dallas is a fan of diffusers!
