Tornadoes and Severe Storms can Allow Flooding in Dallas Homes

Dallas residents often get reminded about their proximity to the most severe portion of tornado alley that affects the entire Midwest. While there is little that a homeowner can do to prevent the formation of one of these devastating storm systems, the effect on your home can allow elemental damage like heavy rainfall and runoff to enter your house unabated. The resulting flooding requires immediate attention from trained professionals like our response team.

Tornadoes can quickly damage roofs and siding on your property, but the flood damage in Dallas that can result is often more challenging to contend with than reconstruction of exterior components might be. Our SERVPRO professionals have advanced equipment to allow us to extract floodwater from your home quickly to help make an efficient path to vital drying efforts. The faster that our experienced team can get to work on this mitigation, the less likely homes are to experience secondary damage such as mold and microbial growth.

From the moment that our experienced professionals get the call about the emergency, we prepare our SERVPRO Green Fleet of service vehicles to roll out from our facility with the equipment and personnel to help. We can offer emergency board up services and tarping services from the time that we arrive so that our other professionals can successfully extract the water and begin drying efforts without continued water penetration into the affected areas.

Our advanced equipment like portable sump pumps and gas-powered extraction machines can work to remove the pooling water from your property fast. We can then set up our drying equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers to begin removing moisture and dampness from this area of your home as well.

While our objective is to protect and preserve materials where possible, flooding often leads to reconstruction efforts for the highly damaged regions of your home. Our professionals can work to make this transition from mitigation and restoration to reconstruction as seamless as possible.

Tornadoes might not hit your home all the time, when they do, it requires immediate attention to protect your property from flooding and other elemental damages. Give our SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas rapid response team a call today at (214) 361-7887.

Why SERVPRO Rely On SERVPRO To Mitigate Your Dallas Home SERVPRO experts can help you identify what is causing the water leaks in your home.

Why SERVPRO Specialists Use Infrared Imaging Devices for Water Damage Mitigation in Dallas

There are many reasons why you can rely on the technicians at SERVPRO when your home in Dallas needs mitigation experts to protect it from harm. Our training and experience, the equipment we use, and our quick response time ensure we do the best possible work on homes to stop any existing damage from worsening or spreading to currently unaffected regions of your property Damage never clears away on its own volition. Helping families move back into their own house as quickly as possible after a disastrous event means a lot to us.
 
When SERVPRO technicians mitigate a home in Dallas that has water damage, we use infrared imaging devices. These handheld pieces of equipment work well in helping us locate water leaks, materials that are retaining moisture, and other damp locations within the home. Infrared imaging does this because they can pick up on any minute temperature differences in materials and on surfaces. Water cools almost all materials enough to produce the differences in temperature needed for these sensitive cameras to pick them up and show them to us on the screen.
 
After we locate water leaks, drips, or damp materials, we can determine the exact amount of moisture content in each with a moisture meter. While the infrared devices give us a starting location for where water is intruding, these highly accurate devices provide us with a starting point for achieving our drying goals.
 
After we dry the areas involved without desiccant machines, localized heaters, and air movers, we can search for microbial activity. Microbes need only a short period of exposure to water before beginning to grow. Locating colonies after we cut off their water supply and dry the area to increasingly hasten the changes in their environment facilitates any additional work needed in this area. Mitigation of your water damage situation should always include a thorough assessment of the environment, so future damage remains controlled.
 
SERVPRO of Northwest Dallas can help make your home's water damage disappear, “Like it never even happened.” Contact us by calling (214) 361-7887, any day of the year, day or night.
