What Is the Best Way to Mitigate Water Damage in North Dallas Homes If It Affects Wooden Items?

Hands holding home You can trust that your home is in good hands with our experienced technicians at SERVPRO.

SERVPRO Avails Resources that Match the Unique Problems that Arise After Water Damage.

If you have taken time to think of the materials in the structure and contents of your home, you have noticed that a significant percentage are made of wood and its derivatives. Therefore, any water intrusion at your North Dallas home is likely to affect a considerable percentage of wooden materials, which can result in a variety of problems, including rotting, stains, and swelling, among others. 

What determines the level of water damage when my Northern Dallas home is exposed? 

A variety of issues can influence the outcome of a water intrusion incident. How the water reaches the materials in question is one such factor. The common ways our SERVPRO technicians have observed water interacting with materials over the years include: 

  • Topical application 
  • Wicking through the materials 
  • Gravity aided flow 

Topical applications, such as when fire suppression sprinklers spray jets of water on materials, might cause minimal penetration if remedial actions such as extraction or blotting with towels are taken immediately. Water flows through gravity forces when a leak originates in an elevated area. For instance, after a leak in an upper level of your house, the water would flow to the ground level areas, thus spreading wetness over large areas. However, the motion involved can limit the amount of moisture that wooden materials absorb since they are mostly semi-porous. Finally, moisture-wicking through materials takes time to spread. However, severe damage is more likely since the affected materials are saturated to the core. 

How easy is it to establish the type of damages caused by water intrusion? 

Although you might have an idea what damage to expect based on the level of water intrusion, estimating that level of intrusion in wooden items might not be easy. One common way to check moisture levels in materials is by using scan type moisture meters, which simplifies the process of tracing moisture spread patterns around your property. However, such tools may be less productive when dealing with wooden materials since they sense moisture up to a depth of around 3/4 to 1 inch.  

If you fail to get an accurate picture of the situation, you are not likely to take the correct steps to mitigate the situation. For instance, your drying efforts might not remove all traces of excess moisture in a block of wood. Alternatively, it might take longer than you expect to normalize the moisture content. Both scenarios can lead to secondary issues such as mold development. Our SERVPRO technicians use other tools such as pin-type moisture meters and thermal cameras when taking moisture readings to confirm the results we get from non-penetrative moisture meters. 

What other challenges does wood present apart from moisture detection issues? 

  • Barriers such as paint and wallpaper hindering smooth drying  
  • False negatives when checking moisture in plywood because of adhesives 
  • The need to use different drying procedures at different stages  
  • Hardwood flooring underlayment interfering with drying 

After establishing the level of wetness in wooden materials, steps such as improving the evaporation rate should help restore the standard 10% moisture content levels. However, if the materials have a finish such as paint or wallpaper, you are not likely to get the results you expect. Such finishes act as vapor barriers interfering with drying procedures. Our SERVPRO crews can help by using specialized tools such as perforation rollers to break the barriers. In case the material is part of a wall or other assembly, we can open up the area so that we can access parts of the materials unaffected by the barriers and thus perform drying as usual. 

Restoring materials such as wet wooden floorboards requires different drying procedures to guarantee the right outcome. After extracting any water pooling on the floor surface, our technicians switch to drying mats to bring down the moisture levels. However, once the moisture content reaches 14%, using drying mats is no longer tenable because fiber structure damage can happen. An alternative drying method, such as using drying chambers, is desirable since it prevents excessive shrinking of the material. Drying chambers can help provide precise drying for various items. For the wooden floors, our SERVPRO technicians create the chamber by attaching a plastic sheet over the wet floor and then circulating dehumidified air inside the tented area.  

Although there is no single approach that can resolve all water damage issues, a resourceful team can help you overcome all problems. Call SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas at (214) 361-7887. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Clogged Drainage Systems Can Cause Flood Damage to North Dallas

Flood in a house with furniture floating Let SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas restore your property to its pre-flood state “Like it never even happened.”

Talk to one of our specialists at SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas. Our flood water removal Technicians Will Help You Handle the Storm Flood Damage in Your Property.

Floodwater can cause lasting damage when it gets into your property. It rots wood paneling, stains furniture, and causes mold infestation. However, if you engage with SERVPRO technicians in North Dallas immediately after the storm, we can work quickly to get your property back to its former glory.

How much does flood damage restoration cost?
The cost of storm flood damage in a North Dallas property varies from case to case, depending on its intensity. When looking for restoration services near you, it is essential to note that the cheapest option is not the best. Quality matters, and you need to rely on the professionals to do an excellent flood damage remediation and restoration job.

At SERVPRO, our pricing system is straightforward and guarantees every client a friendly price. We have a team of certified price-estimators who follow a standardized process of assessing the restoration cost.

What should I do after my home floods?

    •    Follow the authority’s instructions.
    •    Keep off from any electrical cords and switch off the main electricity supply.
    •    Keep your kids from moving floodwater.
    •    Avoid consuming foodstuffs that came into contact with the water.

Can you remove the mud on my driveway?
Our technicians have access to top of the line equipment and tools for effective cleaning. Since floodwater can carry dirt and debris to your doorstep and into your property, we can use a diesel-powered power washer to clean the mud on your driveway and sidewalk. However, the equipment's pressure might not be sufficient to break the bound of the dirt. Therefore, we can add detergent to enhance the cleaning power of the machine.

How long does the drying process take?
The drying process in water cleanup and restoration can take several days. With the help of our advanced equipment and tools, we can dry your property thoroughly. We can place several axial air movers in the affected area to facilitate drying. The equipment removes moisture in affected surfaces and turns it into airborne water vapor. We remove the water vapor from the air using your home’s HVAC system and low grain dehumidifiers. The dehumidifier converts water vapor into liquid and extracts it from the property.

If flood damage occurs in your property, act fast. The longer the contaminated water stands in your property, the more damage it can cause. Let SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas restore your property to its pre-flood state “Like it never even happened.” Contact us now at (214) 361-7887.

Can I Restore My Wet Carpet in Dallas Without Removing It?

flooded living room with floating furniture Extracting water from your home is hard but we can handle it efficiently. Contact SERVPRO for professional remediation and mitigation services.

SERVPRO Simplifies Water Restoration in Dallas Properties by Using Advanced Equipment

A wet carpet can lead to many problems in your house, including bad odor and mold development. A wet carpet is also vulnerable to staining or stretching, among other problems. Removing the carpet from your Dallas house for offsite drying helps improve the efficiency of the process. However, it also presents challenges, including tearing or damaging the carpet in other ways. 

What makes carpet removal necessary during water restoration in Dallas properties? 

Although you might consider the decision to remove the carpet a matter of convenience, some factors can force your hand. Typical reasons include: 

  • Presence of contaminants in the spilled water 
  • Inability to extract all the water that saturates the material 
  • Severe damages such as stretching, tears or delaminating 

Our SERVPRO water restoration technicians use their advanced skills and equipment to manage most of the aspects that force unnecessary carpet removal. 

How can I drain all the water from the carpet? 

Since carpet materials are porous, the fibers absorb and hold water making it difficult to remove all traces of water from carpeted areas. Drying might not be possible under such circumstances. Our technicians have established simple ways to counter the problem. We rely on three crucial factors: 

  • Weight 
  • Sufficient vacuum lift 
  • Sustained action over the affected areas 

When you place something heavy on a carpet, it pushes the water to the surface where you can scoop it off comfortably. Our SERVPRO technicians use weighted extraction tools which provide the necessary squeezing power. The tools have a series of tiny holes on the bottom section that comes into contact with the wet surfaces allowing easier suction of the water.  

Even with the right tools, sustained action is necessary to remove all the water. Our technicians can make several passes on a section of the carpet, ensuring sufficient extraction by using self-propelled extractors that the technician rides.  

With the right skills, it is easier to perform water restoration. Call SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas at (214) 361-7887 to help manage any issue that develops, “Like it never even happened.”

Is Mold an Issue After Flooding in a Dallas Home?

8/23/2020 (Permalink)

living room floor covered in water Flood damage can ruin your home even if you think you’ve taken care of it. Contact SERVPRO for professional removal and remediation services.

SERVPRO techs bring the latest equipment and restoration methods to restore Dallas homes from any size water damage

Floodwater in a Dallas home can enter in various ways. Seals on doors, broken windows, damaged roofing, or other structural issues can allow large amounts of water to enter a home in a short time. One of the critical elements to getting the best outcome for the situation is to bring in a professional service to extract the water and dry the structure as soon as possible and, most importantly, be aware of the development of mold colonies. Unless you live in a hermetically sealed box, microscopic airborne spores are floating in the air, just waiting for the right combination of conditions to germinate and spread. Those are:  

  • Sustained temperatures over 70-degrees Fahrenheit 
  • Ambient humidity levels over 50%
  • Something to eat such as paper, wood or building materials like sheetrock that has not gotten treated with an antimicrobial 

Will Mold From Flood Damage Go Away On Its Own?  

Once mold moves into your Dallas home after flood damage, it will not leave until it gets remediated. The process should be done professionally to avoid spreading spores to other areas of the property. When the conditions are favorable for growth, a small infestation can spread quickly throughout the home and wind up behind walls, under floors, and within the ductwork.

When mold is found on sheetrock or within the subfloor, these areas require removal to halt the infestation. Any existing colonies on structural elements that are not candidates for removal such as framework or studs get the colonies dried in place and then abate through manual removal techniques or the use of blasting using soda or ice.

What is the Difference Between Using Fans and Air Movers to Dry Water Damage?  

When SERVPRO technicians restore a Dallas home with flood water problems, they spend extra time extracting the water. This initial step works to lessen the drying time needed. One of the most significant differences between household fans and the devices used by the techs is the velocity of the air. Even on the high setting, a consumer fan can do little more than dry surfaces. An air mover delivers warm, dry air with so much force it causes embedded moisture to rise, where the dehumidification equipment is waiting to capture it and remove it. Instead of drying only surfaces, the cycle created by the air movers and dehumidifiers results in progressively drier air that works to bring down the interior humidity levels rapidly. 

In cases of a wet carpet from rainwater, the choice to use a company professional extraction and drying equipment can make the difference between getting your carpet restored and having to spend the money to replace it. This is because the longer water waits for cleanup, it degrades and becomes progressively more filled with bacteria. Gravity pulls the water downward into the backing and padding and can seep into the subfloor below; all of these conditions remain when sub-par drying equipment only dries the fibers above. SERVPRO techs use weighted extractor heads to push as much as possible out of the carpet, and then they use specialized drying techniques such as "floating" to force air both over and under the carpet. Another method known as "tenting" works by putting plastic over the wet area and connecting air movers and dehumidifiers to force air in and moisture out. 

Floodwater Can Be Harmful And Need Extra Care to Cleanup  

One of the issues with this type of water is that potential to contain harmful elements such as:   

  • Chemicals
  • Sharp objects
  • Bacteria  
  • Pathogens
  • Sewage

SERVPRO technicians test the water upon arrival, so they know exactly what kind of hazards are present. The application of antibacterial or antimicrobial solutions is standard to make the water safer to handle during disposal. This water has the potential to make humans sick through contact or aspiration of airborne droplets, so the techs wear full-body protective gear, including respirators, to ensure they work safely from start to finish.

Whenever mold has been part of the issue during the cleanup of floodwater in a home, the techs use their moisture detection equipment to monitor the drying process to ensure the interior humidity levels are well below sustainability for spores and colonies. Anywhere that mold got removed gets cleaned and treated with powerful antimicrobial cleaning agents. In cases where repairs need to be made to finalize the restoration, the techs can apply sealants to ensure there is no return of the issue before the renovations happen.

Can My Exposed Beams Be Restored After A Fire In Dallas?

8/10/2020 (Permalink)

The interior of a house has been fully destroyed by a fire We want to help restore your home and leave it, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Technicians Mitigate Fire Damage to Structural Elements with Precision and Expertise in Dallas

A small fire can have a significant impact on a home. Fires in the kitchen area are the most common cause of residential fires in Dallas and across the US. Professional fire mitigation is the best way to handle cleanup and restoration.

Is There a Way Of Cleaning Soot From Exposed Beams?

Many people love the look of open, farmhouse style homes and kitchens. Exposed beams bring a rustic feel to the residence. The homeowner of this residence walked away from a skillet for a few minutes. The skillet caught on fire, and thankfully it was contained quickly. But smoke residue and soot spread rapidly throughout the house and onto the exposed beams. The fire damage to this Dallas home now requires professional cleanup and restoration. Our SERVPRO technicians can safely clean and restored the exposed beam using dry ice blasting.

What is Dry Ice Blasting?

Dry ice blasting is a dry process that uses CO2 pellets. The pellets evaporate instantly when they hit the item’s surface. It’s a non-abrasive and gentle cleaning method. Steel brushes, scrapers, and other blasting material can impact the surface area. In the case of the exposed beams, dry ice blasting allows them to be cleaned in a manner that safely and quickly restored them to preloss condition. Other benefits include:
    •    No waste disposal - Because this method produces no waste product, cleanup is simplified. The coating that gets removed from the beams is what needs to be disposed of. This can be taken care of by sweeping or vacuuming.
    •    Eco-friendly – The process is non-toxic. No hazardous or harsh chemicals get used.
    •    Time and money saver – Dry ice blasting is often quicker than traditional restoration methods. No solvents or blasting material need to be disposed of, saving the client money. Reduced restoration time means decreased labor costs.
    •    No pressure washing – prevents further water from being introduced to the scene.

 You create the type of home you desire. The look and feel of it reflect who you are. When fire damage impacts what you have built, you simply want it back. We want to help restore your home and leave it, “Like it never even happened.” Contact SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas at (214) 361-7887 for quality fire damage service.

Are There Changes to the Professional Response When a Dallas Water Damage Emergency Reveals Long Term Damage As Well?

SERVPRO Prepares Technicians and Managers to Mitigate and Remediate an Active Dallas Water Damage Crisis and Assess and Address the Effects of Long-Standing Hidden Water and Moisture Incursions Discovered.

Every day in your Dallas home, behind walls,  under cabinets, or over ceilings, a secret water drama can be unfolding. Drips and seepage from a cracked pipe or dried-out joint seal quietly and stealthily soak into the building materials and fixtures inside your dwelling. This activity can happen for an extended period of time, and you have no clue that it is occurring as it happens. Structures swell and weaken, still unseen, but threatening collapse. Maybe you notice a musty smell or wonder why the paint is crackling, or the wallpaper is peeling near the ceiling. Floors might start squeaking. You are always wiping up a puddle when you stand at the sink -- are you really that negligent while doing dishes? Or is there something else happening?

How Will Hidden Water Damage Finally Grab My Attention?

If you continue to ignore the subtle signs of water damage in Dallas, it is inevitable that the crisis will someday arrive. The seeping pipe or poorly connected hose eventually blows out completely. Water pours out of the kitchen cabinet or part of the ceiling below the master shower cracks wide open as a waterfall flows. Shutting down the water and calling a plumber stops the current incursion. A new pipe or replacement hose ends the emergency and the persistent slow leak. Still, you have severe damage to building materials and contents and not all date from the most recent bursting of a supply line or a disconnected hose.

Can Neglected Water Damage Be Remediated Long After It Happened?

When you invite SERVPRO to assess the latest water crisis, you might be caught off guard when we tell you many of the building materials we observed show evidence of previously neglected water problems. Even though you are following the right track now, the prior damage to structural components can pose problems for your home's integrity into the future if remediation steps are skipped. What are some things we might see that signal long-standing damage and ways we can help?

Moisture detection and metering

We try to assign one technician the job of using moisture probes and sensors during the water damage project for consistency. Careful outlining of the perimeters of the damp materials and a baseline measurement of moisture levels help us set and achieve drying goals. Comprehensive structural drying allows a determination of whether the remediated materials have the strength and resilience to perform their function:

    •    Subfloor Straits: Are subfloors stable and smooth, or did long-term wetness cause swelling and distortion significant enough to recommend replacement? Even tile floors, which you might believe are impervious to water, can permit long-term damage to the subfloor if grout cracks or caulk along fixtures or the wall is missing, allowing water to percolate down to saturate the plywood. A "wavy" subfloor that does not respond to sanding or refinishing continues to break up grout lines and pop up tiles. Persistently we subfloors in other rooms of the house contribute to uneven wear and tripping hazards on a hardwood or laminate surface.
    •    Insulation Inadequacy: Is insulation capable of providing the R factor expected to keep your home's temperature moderated if it was wet and packed down? Even if it dried completely, it likely is no longer efficient, and your energy use and bills will rise. Replacing insulation is a reasonably inexpensive solution that saves money and keeps your home comfortable in the long run.
    •    Mold Damage Dilemmas: Did we spot evidence of mold damage of dry rot? Mold is not just unpleasant to view and smell; it also consumes organic materials such as wood framing, insulation, and drywall. Supportive structures can become substantially weakened if mold lived and dined on them. Appropriate mold remediation must complete, or you also risk a fungal growth rebound any time moisture is available -- even when the humidity is high. If the damage is substantial, some replacement of structural components might be indicated.

Does the Restoration Company Have Needed Certifications and Licences?

It is always smart to check the credentials of any contractor you hire, but when comparing commercial water restoration companies in Dallas, confirming not only basic licensing but also advanced certifications is prudent. It is not uncommon for secondary surprises to arise during what seems like a routine water removal project. For example, your home might need the following in addition to water extraction and structural drying:

What Do I Use to Clean Black Cobwebs After a Fire in Dallas?

7/25/2020 (Permalink)

After the first responders leave, call SERVPRO to clean up your Dallas home after a fire

Black webs, also known as soot tags, are not uncommon after a fire when petroleum-based products or synthetic materials burn. During a fire, the soot forms and bonds together in long strands and the result are the formation of these black webs on ceilings and within corners. The reason for these specific locations is due to the typically lower temperatures after a fire rolls through the area, and the soot tags are attracted to these cooler areas. One thing Dallas homeowners should not do is remove the webs themselves as it can further damage walls and ceilings.

What Can a Fire Damage Restoration Company Do That I Can't?

There are many reasons to outsource the fire damage restoration of your Dallas home to SERVPRO. The technicians have extensive training and advanced equipment to ensure the best outcome for both the structure and contents. In the case of smoke damage on surfaces, the techs take preliminary steps to ensure the correct cleaning agents get chosen by:
    •    Testing residues to determine if they are dealing with dry or wet smoke
    •    Scoping of services to ensure cleaning methods chose will not mar surfaces
    •    Use of specific equipment such as dry cleaning sponges to carefully lift away dry smoke

What are Ways to Prevent Fires in My Home?

There are many ways for homeowners to lessen the chances of fires occurring in their homes. A good fire prevention plan begins with going over with your family what to do in case of a fire. Practice leaving and agree on a meeting place and see how quickly all family members can get there. Many insurance agents have checklists for home inspections, and you can ask for a copy for your own use. If not, make a list of each room in your home and look for the following:
    •    Overloaded outlets
    •    Extension cords under rugs
    •    Improperly stored flammable chemicals and cleaners
    •    Test smoke detectors monthly or consider upgrading to an environmental monitoring system
    •    Make sure all family members know basic fire prevention skills

How Does SERVPRO Know What My Insurance Covers During Cleanup?

In many cases, the cleanup after a fire comes with an insurance claim. SERVPRO technicians communicate with both homeowners and insurance adjusters to ensure that all the restoration services the techs perform get done within the scope of coverage. Additionally, when charred building materials or contents require disposal, it does not happen without approval. Items that need disposal get a detailed report created indicating the nature of the loss, the condition of the article, and photographs to back up the statement. This writeup can assist in the filing and expediting of insurance claims. The techs know this is a situation that can feel overwhelming, and they attempt to help lessen the stress on the property owners wherever possible.

Is it True You Can Paint Over Fire Odors?

Fire odors are pungent and stay until neutralized. Many homeowners assume they can paint over smoke damage and make it out of sight, out of mind. Unfortunately, that tactic works to eliminate the visible, but the strong odor can remain. SERVPRO technicians have a multi-layered approach to the removal of the instantly recognizable smell that fire leaves behind. The techs clean surfaces with the appropriate cleaning agent and then use equipment such as thermal fogging units or hydroxyl generators to eradicate odors from airborne soot particles. If any scents, however, mild remain within the loss area, the techs can use professional sealants to lock away the odor and prep the walls for priming and painting.

Air quality is a huge concern during the mitigation, and air scrubbers typically run during the cleanup efforts. If the HVAC ran after the fire or there is a reason to suspect soot is within the ductwork, the techs have the equipment and comprehensive training to clean the ductwork throughout the home thoroughly.

Post-Fire Restoration Actions

Once the team finishes the mitigation efforts for the loss within the home, the SERVPRO crew chief goes over the actions taken within the loss area, including items that required disposal, any controlled demolition needed, and the things that got successfully restored through the professional cleaning process. If any repairs need to get done to bring the home to a fully restored status, the homeowner and/or adjuster gets given that information also.

SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas at (214) 361-7887 stands ready to assist any size fire damage restoration needs. The certified techs are available 24/7 and use their knowledge and expertise to bring your home back to its preloss condition.
