Effective Water Removal and Methods to Avoid Recurring Problems

A homeowner might require removal of large amounts of water due to an internal issue like household plumbing or an external issue like flooding caused by excessive rainfall. The faster you can reach out to a professional service the less likely it is that permanent damage can occur to your furniture, fittings or structure. Anything above a minor water spill should be dealt with by trained technicians who have the equipment to remove water from difficult to reach spots.

Time is a contributing factor to successful remediation so for water removal in Dallas homeowners should look to local services. SERVPRO uses technicians exclusively from this community which reduces the expected call out time. It also means that our technicians have experience in dealing with the unique architecture of Dallas properties which helps them to find spots where water is likely to pool and remediate them efficiently.

The primary equipment SERVPRO uses for water removal is extraction units. These come in all shapes and sizes from small portable units to large truck-mounted equipment. Regardless of size, they contain a heating element, vacuum power and are capable of removing gallons over a thousand times faster than traditional air movers or dehumidifiers. Importantly they are also kind to carpets or other weak fabrics.

Although a homeowners primary concern is likely to be removing the water pooling there is also the necessity of putting in place preventative measures. SERVPRO can apply anti-microbial treatments as well as paints and chemically cleaning methods. These all combine to build an effective deterrent to secondary bacteria or fungi growth which can cause expensive secondary damages.

The most effective preventative measure though is making sure the property remains at the correct humidity level. We achieve this by measuring humidity from an unaffected area of the home. This measurement is established as a dry goal and, by using moisture meters and dehumidifiers, we are confident of restoring your property to its normal condition, "Like it never even happened."

Fire Damage Dallas Fire Loss Property Owners Have a Helping Partner in SERVPRO SERVPRO Says to Dallas Homeowners--Watch the Pot and Avoid Kitchen Fires

Common Causes of Fire and Fire Damage to be Aware of in Your Dallas Home

The thought of everything you own going up in flames in your Dallas home is quite a frightening image and many homeowners’ worst fears. However, it can happen, and it is best to know ahead of time the most common causes of fires in the home so that you can try to avoid them. Your entire family should know common fire safety practices to help keep everyone safe.

We can help you clean up the damages and restore your home to the way it was before the fire, helping to erase the bad memories of the event, "Like it never even happened."
 
The busiest room in the home is the kitchen, and it is also the area where fire danger is most likely. While the kitchen is the room which sees the most people, it is usually when they are not there that accidents happen. It is recommended that someone is always in the vicinity when there is food cooking, whether it is on the range or in the oven. SERVPRO techs have much experience with cleaning up kitchen fires and have the knowledge and tools to help you out if this happens to you.
 
Chimneys are another dangerous area of your home if you own a fireplace. Failure to clean up the buildup of creosote in chimneys is the leading cause of fires from heating equipment. You should service your chimney on an annual basis, letting professionals clean the highly flammable creosote from your chimney. Also, keep anything that can catch fire away from any fixed or portable heater.
 
Electricity has safety hazards because of equipment that can malfunction. Almost ten percent of fires involve electrical lighting equipment. When you use appliances, do not plug cords in which are damaged, whether they are bare, frayed, or loose. Also, avoid overloading any circuits by having too much plugged in.
 
Scented candles are pleasant to have burning in the home, but it is easy to forget that they have open flames. Never leave a room unattended with a burning candle, especially if you have pets or young children. Candles need to be placed in a sturdy holder to lower the risk of them being tipped over.

We can help you to restore your home when you call us at (972)227-0800, so don’t wait, as more damage is done the longer the soot and smoke are allowed to sit.

Proven Tips For Texas Home Flood Damage Remediation

Why SERVPRO Proven Tips For Texas Home Flood Damage Remediation When flooding has forced you to vacate your home, contact team SERVPRO. Our technicians will mitigate the situation and start water removal.

Why SERVPRO is a Reliable Flood Extraction Team in Dallas

When your home in Dallas or the surrounding area falls victim to flooding, your first concern after making sure everyone is safe is getting your home back into a livable condition. You need someone who can get all of the work done quickly and competently. Anything less can leave aspects of your home in a less-than-acceptable state, and possibly put your family at risk of unwanted health effects.
 
Why SERVPRO takes the mitigation of flooded homes in Dallas so seriously is that flood extraction teams must know how to use the equipment and in the order in which they must carry out the work. Extracting floodwater from your property is a crucial step toward complete mitigation and restoration. Without it, nothing else can happen, and your family continues needing substitute lodging.
 
SERVPRO flood extraction technicians begin with our Green Fleet's truck-mounted pump to remove standing water. Your flooded home can still contain several inches of water upon your initial inspection. Getting this removed by pumping it out instead of allowing it to drain off by itself can save a significant portion of time and also help make the rest of our mitigation work more effective.
 
When SERVPRO works on a flooded home, our goal is to remove all traces of floodwater from the property and get things prepared for successful restoration. Our work during flood extraction jobs includes the removal of interior structures that became destroyed during prolonged contact with water. Walls made of drywall and paneling, as well as many older types of stucco, carpeting and its padding – these all require removal from the property followed by the installation of replacement materials.
 
We eliminate all of the dampness flooding caused as part of our flood extraction work, making the interior of your home safe for these new materials. Otherwise, water damage and microbial infestation could occur rather quickly. Elimination of these materials also removes a sizable percentage of unwanted moisture from the property.
 
To dry a home after a flooding event, we use highly efficient air movers. These change the air several times in a short period and quickly draw moisture out of damp, but as-of-yet undamaged, materials, effectively preventing their destruction. SERVPRO specialists also use air scrubbers to minimize dust, pollen, and microbes in the air. Removing these can make the air more healthy to breathe, both while we work and for when your family returns home upon completion of mitigation and restoration efforts.
 
SERVPRO of Southeast Dallas County works in Seagoville, Wilmer, and Lancaster, as well, providing timely flood extraction services to families and business owners in need of drying services. Call us at (972) 227-0800 when your property suffers a flooding disaster.
