Five Tips to Stay Safe in a Winter Storm

12/9/2020 (Permalink)

Winter storm If your property suffers from a winter storm call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400

The following are 5 tips to keep yourself and your property safe during a winter storm.

*Follow the storm trackers on your local news. If your local news tells you a blizzard is coming, take the warning seriously.

*Charge your electronic devices. If you know that a storm is coming, make sure you charge your cell phone, laptop and any other electronic device you have.

*Stay inside and off the roads.  Driving is dangerous not only because of road conditions, but also reduced visibility.

*Prepare to go without power and heat. Having an emergency supply kit ready for a winter storm is a great idea. Be sure to include candles, matches, flashlights, batteries, warm clothes for everyone in your family and plenty of non-perishable food. Also have a stock of bottled water on hand.

*Keep an eye on the accumulated snow on your roof. The average roof should be able to hold about 20 pounds of pressure per square foot. A foot of fresh snow is equal to about five pounds per square foot. This means that it will take about four feet of snow to cause significant stress to your roof.

If your house suffers any damage as a result of a winter storm call SERVPRO of Metrocrest to help with your needs. (972) 233-8400.

Is your home ready for the winter weather?

A snowman in the snow and cold 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.

When a Biohazard Cleanup is Needed – Call SERVPRO of Metorcrest

When there is an accident or traumatic death that occurs in your life, many people are at a disbelief and not sure what to do or where to start.  Some insurance policies include biohazard clean-up. Typically, an insurance adjuster will be required to do an assessment before reimbursement is offered. This can be a challenge for even a seasoned insurance professional to judge the full extent of the damage. Not only are biohazard situations unique, but they are often difficult to remediate which can make the adjuster’s job is also more challenging. SERVPRO of Metrocrest has a staffed certified biohazard technician that knows how important it is to make a difficult situation easier for the insurance adjuster the person dealing with the trauma.

SERVPRO of Metrocrest knows that safety should never be overlooked when it comes to biohazards. Our certified biohazard technician always uses the proper protocol when it comes to handling and disposal of all the biohazardous waste. We always follow local and federal safety regulations and hospital grade cleaners.

If you need assistance with a biohazard cleanup call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Prevent Water Damages Before They Happen

11/29/2020 (Permalink)

Be careful where you plant plants and trees that have intense roots. If you are not careful, they will grow right into your sprinkler system, drainage field, and pipes.

If you see lots of leaves, sticks, and such up in your gutters, they need to be cleaned out. On a rainy day, a clogged gutter can send water spilling into your home’s foundation and through the roof, which could cause some serious water damage!

With so many water pipes hidden behind walls and in the floors in your house, you might not know there is a leak until the damage is done. It is a good idea to keep a close eye on your monthly water bill. If you see it starting to creep up, or get one that is uncommonly high, it’s a pretty good sign that you may have a leak somewhere.

It is inevitable, kitchen and bathroom clogs are going to happen. Chances are at some point in your life you’ve used one of those powerful chemical drain cleaners to get things moving again. But as convenient as they may be, most folks don’t realize those caustic chemicals are also eating away at their pipes. If you rely on them a lot, you could be setting yourself up for leaks. That’s why owning a drain snake is a good solution to clear away clogs.

You should definitely avoid pouring grease down your kitchen sink. It doesn’t matter if you flush it with hot or cold water. It can still congeal and cling to your pipes and could still cause some serious damage and blockage.

If your home suffers from a water damage, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Water damage in a building in the town of Addison

10/11/2020 (Permalink)

water damage on the ceiling of an office SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400

The town of Addison’s service center had a water leak from a terrible rainstorm. The rain came in from the roof and leaked down through the ceiling, walls, and effected the flooring in a few offices. When the facilities manager noticed the water damage, they called the one company they can always count on, they called SERVPRO of Metrocrest. As soon as the facilities manage called our office to report their damage, our technicians were in their office within 30 minutes. The SERVPRO of Metrocrest tech walked the affected area with the facilities manager, and they made a game plan on how to get the water damage dry as effectively and quickly as possible. As soon as the plan was approved by the facilities manager, our tech got to work by first extracting the water out of the carpet and then setting up air movers and dehumidifiers to begin the drying process.

If your home or office suffers from a water damage, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.
