Pipe Burst Saving The Day in Casa View

Casa View's Treasured Store Suffered Water Damage

Another local business was struck by water damage last weekend due to a pipe burst. This store is located within the main shopping district so being closed for days was bad news for this retail store. Multiple rooms and ceiling tiles had heaps of water damage, this was read through our moisture detector. We sent out technicians that started to clean out contents and begin reconstruction. The equipment was installed in the same day, with each room getting a good number of fans to air out moisture. 

The fans were left over the weekend, with each day one of our technicians doing a check up. The store owners were expecting a longer closure week, however they were informed that we could possibly be getting out of the store earlier than expected. Thanks to our great clean out process we were out faster than expected. 

Keeping Your Home Safe From Fire

Home Fire Damaged Protecting your East Dallas Home

Kitchen fires can start small and quickly escalate into a full-blown disaster. Other areas of your home can feel the impact of the fire, and there is also the risk of bodily harm. Knowing what to do in a kitchen fire emergency and how to prevent one from happening ensures that your safety remains a priority. This blog will discuss in detail the importance of kitchen fire safety for your peace of mind.

What Are the Most Common Causes of a Kitchen Fire?

Many factors can cause a flame in the kitchen to become out of control, such as leaving something unattended on the stovetop or grease buildup igniting. Electric appliances in poor conditions can also create fires, such as toaster ovens and microwaves. Cooking oil and other flammable liquids can also pose a fire risk.

How to Put Out a Kitchen Fire

Regardless of the cause, a kitchen fire requires an immediate response.

If you can, you should first unplug or turn off the heat source; this includes the stovetop, oven, or any electrical appliances. Doing so will prevent the fire from spreading to other areas. You can try to smother the fire with a wet towel. Then, consider opening doors and windows to ventilate the space. 

Microwave and Oven Fires

If you find yourself face-to-face with flames in your microwave or oven, there are three easy steps you can follow to extinguish them:

1. Turn off the heat source. Doing so will prevent the fire from spreading.

2. Cover the flames with a damp towel or baking soda. This will help to smother the fire and prevent oxygen from reaching it. Let the fire burn out in the enclosed space. 

3. Call the fire department if the fire is out of control. It’s always best to err on the side of caution and let the professionals handle it. 

Oil or Grease Fires 

NEVER throw water on an oil or grease fire!

Putting out an oil or grease fire is not as simple as using water. Using water feeds the fire. The best way to put out an oil or grease fire is to smother it with a lid or a fire blanket. You can use baking soda if neither of these items is available.

Don’t hesitate to call the fire department if the fire is widespread. They can handle large-scale fires if a fire extinguisher isn’t sufficient.

The last week started off with heavy rainfall, with the likes that Dallas hasn't seen in decades. The rainfall lasted all day which led to homeowners and business owners trying to make sure no water got inside their properties. However, the rainfall proved to be heavy and was starting to enter the businesses and homes. 

A few businesses unluckily got hit with standing water entering their business. Walking into their businesses next day was not a good sight.

SERVPRO of East Dallas' White Rock Lake Fun Facts

A view from White Rock A stunning view from White Rock Lake. A popular destination.

SERVPRO of East Dallas has some White Rock Lake Fun Facts:

Before it was a lake, White Rock Lake was a collection of farms owned by the Daniel and Cox families. The first record of the Daniel family farm is in the Family Bible of Thomas Walker Daniel. He and his wife Frances Herndon Daniel seem to have moved to the White Rock area in the late 1830s and early 1840s. Daniel's son had a good friend during the civil war named Cox. When the war was over, the Cox family moved to land adjacent to the Daniel family.

Construction on White Rock Lake began in 1910 in response to a water shortage in Dallas. After the lake was completed in 1911, residential construction around the lake increased, and in the early 1930s the Dallas Park Board, with the help of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), began developing the lakeshores into a municipal park. The White Rock CCC Camp was established at Winfrey Point and included eight barracks buildings. For several years, the men of the CCC deepened and widened the lake, built numerous limestone rock buildings, and made recreation improvements to the park.[3]

At the outbreak of WWII, the U.S. Army used the CCC camp as induction point for new recruits.

By 1992 White Rock Lake Park was a center of recreational activity for central Dallas, providing picnic areas and bicycle and jogging paths.

All that is left of the Daniel and Cox farms is the old "Daniel-Cox family cemetery." The Daniel family fell upon hard times and when the cemetery was renovated, the Cox family contributed funds to renovate the cemetery so the current sign reads "Cox Cemetery".
