Update To The First Freeze of 2022

1/3/2023 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Trucks At Local Church This church was so happy whenever we were able to have it back open before weekend services.

Last week we informed our Newsletter that Dallas was going to experience the first freeze of the year. This freeze was going to be below 10 degrees weather with some possible sleet. We knew this freeze could bring some problems when it comes to water damage. When the weather gets to that temperature pipes tend to get frozen and burst. This pipe burst can bring water damage to any building that may suffer from it. 

Sadly a local church in the East Dallas area experienced this disaster bringing water into the building from the pipes. SERVPRO was called into the area within a couple of hours of the situation. We needed to extract water and install equipment to keep this church in stable condition. Thankfully this process took around 4 days and the church was able to be open for any weekend services that they may have had. 

If your home or business experiences this kind of water damage, please feel free to give us a call to have the damage estimated. We service all of East Dallas and Balch Springs are.

The Worst Fire In Dallas History

Fire Burned Down Businesses and Homes Lives Were Lost, On This Tragic Day in Dallas History

50 Years Ago, The Worst Fire In Dallas History Occured

Dallas at the time was still reeling from the Kennedy assassination and was still abuzz with the fallout when the fire stole the headlines. News coverage from the time stated that the fire started in the basement of the restaurant and was eventually ruled  arson. One person would go on trial but was ultimately acquitted.

According to a 2015 synopsis of the fire on the City of Dallas’s news website, more than 750 firefighters fought through the early morning hours to put out the flames, including firefighters from Station 18 and Gaylord’s father, Jerry Henderson. Henderson was one of the firefighters inside when the floor of the building finally collapsed, sending him and several others into a fiery fall.

Gaylord said as the morning progressed, her mother and her family got the news that they always feared.

“Later on, of course, there was a knock on the door,” she said, saying her mom opened it to see a Dallas Fire captain and several of her father’s good friends. “They came in to tell her that it was confirmed, the four firemen were lost.”

East Dallas Home Suffers Kitchen Fire

11/21/2022 (Permalink)

Fire Team in Dallas A kitchen fire can be a fire that starts quick and can consume the whole house.

When it comes to cooking in the kitchen it is known to be careful due to the dangers. From hot pans to boiling water to sharp knives, there are few places in most homes with as much potential danger as the kitchen. All these can cause fires but do you know the #1 causes of fires in Dallas?

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that around 173,200 home structure fires annually started as a result of cooking between 2013 and 2017 (according to their most recent report, released in November of 2019). Cooking fires alone accounted for an average of “550 civilian deaths, 5,020 reported civilian fire injuries, and $1.2 billion in direct property damage per year.” So it goes without saying that cooking fires are a very serious matter and should be avoided whenever possible.

When the NFPA lets us know what not to do as it relates to kitchen fires, most things boil down to one simple idea — don’t leave cooking food unattended. Whatever reason you have for leaving the room while cooking, just remember that you are leaving an active heat source and combustible material hanging out on their own, and that’s a recipe for disaster. Keep a close eye on food on the stovetop the entire time it’s cooking, and if you leave the room while food is in the oven, come back to check on it regularly.

If you are tired, have consumed alcohol, or are taking medication that make you drowsy or forgetful, avoid cooking when you can. If you must cook, practice extra care and never leave the room. It is when we are sleepy and decide to go lay down on the couch while our pan heats up or our casserole bakes that we are asking for trouble. SERVPRO of East Dallas is if you experience any type of smoke or water damage. 

Signs of Water Damage in a Dallas Home

11/16/2022 (Permalink)

Yellow Stains on Floor This is a clear sign of water damage on the floorboards.

SERVPRO likes to help out the community when it comes to water damage. We aren't afraid to give some tips on what water damage looks like and what to look for. 

Water Stains on the House

Water stains are the first sign you should be looking for, they are usually yellow looking spots on walls and the ceiling. Check those areas to find water damage.

Swollen Drywall

In some occasions, drywall will absorb some of the excess moisture in a property, which will cause it to bubble up and become swollen. Go around and look at the walls to see if you have any of these symptoms. 

Rotting Wooden Items

Speaking of materials that tend to accumulate/absorb water, you should also take a good look at any rotten wood in the house. Verify that the wooden furniture, fixtures, and more, are in good condition.

A Nasty, Humid Smell

The smell of excess humidity or mold presence in a place is unmistakable, as it has a strong scent of unfresh, rotten eggs, mixed with a dirty, wet dog. Smell the property intently to notice this disgusting odor.

The Sound of Leaks Around the House

Of course, if you hear water dripping around the house, there may be a leak. However, if that leak has been there for a long time, then you can almost bet that there is some water damage in the property.

Paint in Bad Shape

The paint job on the property also suffers when there's excess humidity or water damage. For that reason, it's important that you notice its condition: if it's bubbling, discolored, or it's peeling off, there may be some damage.

Located near Downtown Dallas, we are ready to help you if you see any of these signs in your home or business.
