Being in the restoration industry, SERVPRO of East Dallas is on site at all types of losses. Especially when dealing with a fire or storm loss, we frequently encounter the men and women who serve our community as first responders. 

When crisis strikes, our police departments, fire departments, and EMS crews answer the call. Our military defends us and our freedom. These men and women are true heroes, and we can never express enough gratitude for what they sacrifice for us.

As a means to honor them and their families, SERVPRO is the title sponsor of the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl, the college bowl game that honors our first responders.

This year, the game is set for Monday, December 30th. For the first time, the game will be played at SMU’s Gerald J. Ford Stadium in Dallas, Texas. Kickoff is set for 11:30 am, and will air on ESPN. The game is slated to be a matchup of schools from the Big 12 Conference and Conference USA.

For more information on the game, for details on how first responders can receive free tickets, or for instructions on how you or your company could sponsor first responders' tickets, visit the game's website at www.firstresponderbowl.com

Smoke Damage Restoration

soot covering the interior of an attic crawlspace Fire damage doesn't necessarily mean burned.

Fires are destructive. When most people imagine a fire impacting their home or business, it's likely that they think of flames. However, even if a portion of your property isn't burned, it can still suffer from damage as the result of a fire.

For example, this photo shows the interior of an attic. Nothing in the attic was actually burned, as the fire took place in the garage below. However, the access door had been left open, so smoke billowed into the space above, coating the rafters, ceiling, and insulation with soot.

SERVPRO of East Dallas removed and discarded the damaged insulation, threw out any materials that couldn't be restored, deodorized the space, primed and painted the beams, and placed new insulation into the attic, removing all trace of fire damage.

Storm Readiness - Make an Emergency Kit!

red emergency kit Emergencies happen. Prepare for them before they occur.

This hurricane season has been a doozy. There are currently six tropical storms swirling around in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
Within the last month, Hurricane Dorian nearly obliterated the Bahamas, and Tropical Storm Imelda wreaked havoc on both Texas and Louisiana.

There is nothing we can do to prevent storms from happening. However, we can take precautions and do what we can in order to be prepared in the event a storm or disaster strikes our area. 

In the "Build a Kit" section of their website, ready.gov offers a list of suggestions of items to have prepared in case of a general disaster.

Sealing all the items you assemble in airtight plastic bags keeps them safe from water, and having a way to easily carry around your supplies is helpful in the event that you need to move from your location. 

Some suggested items to include in your emergency kit are: water, non-perishable food, batteries, a map of your local area, a NOAA weather radio, a first aid kit, and a flashlight. There are additional items that you can consider, and some that will depend specifically on the needs of your family (Do you have pets? Do any of your relatives require medication? Are there babies who require formula? etc).

SERVPRO of East Dallas: Smoke and Soot Cleanup

1/30/2019 (Permalink)

Call (469) 998-6444 for Smoke, Soot and Pervasive Odor restoration services in your East Dallas home.

Smoke and soot facts:

Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure penetrating various cavities in your home, causing hidden damage and odor.  Smoke typically flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor. 

Did you know there are Different Types of Smoke?

  • Wet Smoke - Plastic and Rubber
    • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.
  • Dry Smoke - Paper and Wood
    • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.
  • Protein Fire Residue - Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire
    • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of East Dallas will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred.  Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, SERVPRO of East Dallas produces a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
