The Importance of Cleaning dryer vents

4/23/2019 (Permalink)

According to FEMA, failure to clean home dryers causes 34% of home dryer fires. Home dryer fires cause $35 million in property loss and can even cause injury or death. To reduce the risk of these fires happening in your home, SERVPRO® can help clean dryer vents and ducts that may have lint buildup.

Other tips for keeping your dryer vents clean from the National Fire Protection Agency include cleaning the lint filter before and after each load of laundry and making sure the outdoor vent flap will open and is not restricted by snow, a bird’s nest or other potential obstacles. It is recommended to check your outside vent flap once a month.

Heavy rains flood local school

4/17/2019 (Permalink)

Spring rain season is here and is in full force.

SERVPRO of Sherman/Denison technician's were contacted from a middle school in our area.

Major rains caused the water to rise and come up through a pipe and disperse muddy water throughout the school. Many classrooms and halls were saturated in a muddy residue from the rising water.

Our crews spend several hours extracting several inches the muddy water throughout the building for several hours and finally reached the point of pulling cove base and setting the drying equipment. 

The school was allowed to reopen the very next day. 
If you experience a flooding due to heavy flooding rains give SERVPRO of Sherman/Denison a call today if you receive any storm damage to your property

EMERGENCY WATER DAMAGE TIPS

Shut off the water source if possible or contact a qualified party to stop the water source.  Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building when access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock. Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.  Place aluminium foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.  Move any paintings, art objects, computers, documents, and other sensitive valuables to a dry place.  Don’t enter affected areas if electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers, or electrical equipment are exposed to water. Always avoid electrical shock hazards. Don’t use your household vacuum cleaner to remove water; this could cause electrical shock or damage to the vacuum cleaner.  Don’t turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet or enter rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.

When Fire Strikes

3/11/2019 (Permalink)

Even a small fire can cause odors for years to come if the affected areas are not properly cleaned and deodorized. Fire, smoke and soot damage in your home or business can create unpleasant and potentially permanent problems.As various materials burn, the smoke produced travels throughout the structure, leaving odorous residues and deposits on surfaces and in hard-to-reach places. Unless fast, professional action is taken, these residues and deposits can cause permanent damage to contents and may result in resurfacing odors.

Emergency Board Up and Roof Tarping

Did you know that some insurance companies deny at least part of a fire insurance claim if it finds that a property owner did not try to protect their property from secondary damage?  This can be avoided by hiring a contractor to do emergency board up and roof tarping.  

After fire damage, many properties experience damaged roofs, windows, doors, and even damaged outer walls.  This type of damage makes a building susceptible to secondary damage. Weather can come in and cause water damage and mold.  Easy access also makes it easy for theft to occur.

For these reasons, we recommend emergency fire damage services as soon as the fire department has left.  We can:

  • Attach a weatherproof roof tarp.
  • Board up damaged doors, windows, and outer walls.
  • Send a security guard to protect your property 24 hours a day.

After your property is secure, we can inspect your property and begin fire damage cleanup and remediation services.
