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.

SERVPRO of Metrocrest are the experts at Handling Mold in the Dallas Area

Mold on a bedroom wall If your home or office suffers from mold, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest to help with your mold remediation. 9972) 233-8400

The technicians at SERVPRO of Metrocrest undergo comprehensive training to identify areas of mold and how to safely remove it. Our technicians use an array of moisture detection equipment to locate areas of raised moisture behind walls, under floors, and within ceilings.

Depending on the level of infestation in your home or office, our technicians will remove items too damaged for restoration and then bring the humidity down to levels too low for mold growth. We do this through the use of professional grade drying and dehumidifying equipment. We also spray antimicrobial solution to help stop the mold growth on all the affected areas. There are some instances in which hard scrubbing, sanding or soda blasting on surfaces will be needed to remove the mold colonies.

When mold damage has persisted for an extended period of time the severity of the damage to your home or office might be too considerable to overcome. In these cases, the only suitable solution is to remove these elements and replace them with new materials.

If your home or office suffers from mold damage call the professionals at SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Signs of water damage in your bathroom

7/27/2020 (Permalink)

Water damaged wall with SERVPRO fans on it If your property suffers from a bathroom water damage contact SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Water damage in your bathroom is not always easy to find since water is a normal occurrence in bathrooms.

There are many hidden culprits such as cracked shower tiles, or leaky seals around a toilet bowl where tiny leaks can end up causing large amounts of damage to the floorboards, walls, and ceilings.

Knowing what to look for is vital for any property owners. The following tips will prevent extensive water damage in bathrooms.

A Soft Floor

If you know your home was built with a wooden floor truss system, the sub floor is most likely made of plywood. If the plywood is subjected to moisture, the subfloor will rot, and the floor will begin to feel soft or spongy in places. This could lead to your entire floor collapsing if left unattended.

Trust Your Nose

If you smell something musty or damp, it could be due to moisture damage lurking behind the walls. Although many older homes have this smell, rooms with actual damage have a more prominent smell. Sometimes you might not be able to see it but be sure to trust your nose.

Warped Walls

When drywall absorbs water, it begins to swell and becomes soft. This is another clear sign that may point to an extensive problem. Over time, the damaged area starts to crumble, especially around the baseboards. If you run your hand across the wall and it feels uneven or looks crooked when you look at it, you could have water damage behind the walls.

Visible Mold

Mold is built from the inside out so that by the time you can see it, no matter how much you scrub, the problem will not go away. You will need the help of our specialists to return your home to a safe place for the whole family.

If your property suffers from a bathroom water damage, call SERVPRO of Metrocrest to help make things, “Like it never even happened.” (972) 233-8400.

Types of Storm Damage in the Dallas, TX Area

7/21/2020 (Permalink)

A home damaged by Dallas, TX storm If your home suffers from storm damage call SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400.

Flood damage, wind damage, and hail damage are all possibilities here in the Dallas, Texas area. If storm damage hits your home or office, here are a few tips to help:

Flood Damage & Recovery
If your home or office space is near water, or in a low-lying area, flood water damage is a risk. Heavy rains and flooding may cause water damage. If the land around your home or business cannot redirect the additional water, flooding can happen. Even homes and businesses at higher elevations can sustain flood damage if frozen pipes break. As soon as you see flooding in your home, contact SERVPRO of Metrocrest (972) 233-8400 to start the water mitigation process.

Wind Damage Restoration
Tornadoes often cause severe wind damage. This was the case in late 2019 when a tornado tore through the Dallas area and left it unrecognizable. Roof damage from strong winds may lift roof shingles, causing cracks, or even removing parts of an entire roof. Repairing roof damage may prove difficult for homeowners and business owners after a disaster due to damages that is not easily seen. If you have wind damage, make sure to ask for a professional to check your roof for moisture and signs of roof leaks.

Hail Damage & Recovery
Hail damage may be the most overlooked cause of major storm damage. Hail can damage not just your roof but also your siding, exterior walls, and windows. You may think your home or office has survived a hailstorm without damage, but hail damage can be difficult to identify. It would be a good idea to hire a roofing professional to inspect your roof and exterior walls for damage.

Impact Damage & Recovery
During a major storm it is not just wind, hail, and rain that can cause major damage to your home or business. Trees can cause horrendous damage just like weather can. Big trees are a huge bonus in a yard because they can produce shade but during a storm, they can cause damage. You will want to make sure that your trees are at least alive and there aren’t any branches that extend over your home or are breaking off. If you happen to have a tree fall on your home, not only could it damage the roof of your home or business , but the force from high winds and size of the tree could cause it to enter the home and damage the walls, flooring and content inside.

SERVPRO of Metrocrest is just a phone call away. We are here to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No matter the size of your storm damage we will work to make it “Like it never even happened.”
