Keep an eye on rusting water heaters

When thinking of appliances that use water in your business, what appliance comes to mind? Bathrooms? Dishwasher? Maybe your water heater? Often tucked away in a closet or in the attic, we sometimes forget that they’re there working everyday 24/7 to maintain hot water so it’s ready for you to use. An aging water heater lives on borrowed time and can be a cause for water damage in your business if left unchecked. Rust is a major factor that can lead to water heater failure. To prevent this from occurring, water heaters contain an anode rod. This rod is highly reactive and as a result the water will begin to consume this rod before it begins to breakdown the steel lining inside of your water heater. These rods however last only around five years before the water inside the tank completely eats them away. Soon, the water will begin attacking the steel lining within the tank which could lead to leaks. If you have any questions on this, give us a call at 940-241-3434.

Closet with water damage on the carpet with clothes still hanging up

Be careful leaving your house alone

A common cause of loss we see on the job site comes from failed water supply lines. One accident we encountered came from the toilet supply line on the second story. The family just left for vacation which allowed this burst line to flood their home for over 24 hours before a neighbor began to notice water coming out from the garage. During this time, the water had managed to affect all three rooms on the second story as well as all adjoining hallways and stairways. You can however take preventative steps to protect yourself from experiencing a similar ordeal. When making your selection on new supply lines be sure to opt for the braided stainless-steel lines. These lines are stronger than conventional plastic supply lines and can provide additional peace of mind. If you have any questions about how to handle or prepare yourself for future water damages, give us a call at 940-241-3434.

Wall and ceiling has smoke and soot damage on it

Temperatures of Smoke

Let’s talk about how hot smoke can be. Convection is when heat is being transferred by air movement. The hot air will begin to rise since it is not as dense as cooler air thus as a fire continues to burn it pulls in the cooler air at lower levels and heats it up. As this process continues a pattern of constant movement and circulation in the building which are called convection currents. Now you may have heard to drop down to the floor if ever caught in a smokey room. The smoke won’t stop until it is met by the ceiling and then continues into other rooms. Smoke will move into adjacent rooms as the upper portion of the room fills to the doorways. Hot smoke moves by pressurized air with force and therefore is called driven smoke. As hot smoke collides with materials in the building it deposits residues which causes soot. Call us for any smoke damage at 940-241-3434

Women suffering from allergies blowing her nose

Your allergies at your business or home could be caused by contaminated air ducts

Air ducts that haven’t been properly cleaned could potentially be holding dangerous contaminants. One such hazard could be mold. If moisture enters your duct system mold spores can develop rapidly clinging to the ducting system and quickly circulate through your entire system which in turn leaves no room unaffected by a mold build up. Unclean air ducts can also be a danger to anyone with asthma or respiratory problems. Dirty duct systems can be a host to not only dust but also dangerous fungi and pollens which can increase your chances of developing respiratory illnesses. Breathe easy knowing that SERVPRO of Highland Village can tackle any duct cleaning job whether commercial or residential!

Whenever you call SERVPRO of Highland Village, this is one of many tools we bring along for finding water in places that may not appear to be damp on the surface but are still soaked through. The Flir E6 is an infrared camera we use to measure the location and amount of water behind a wall, ceiling or floor, no matter the building material. This is an expensive, but necessary piece of equipment to show us exactly where to start the necessary restoration process. 

Two SERVPRO dehumidifiers

Have You Met Our Dehumidifiers?

These are just two types of dehumidifiers we have here at the warehouse. The one on the right is called Dri-Eaz Evolution (AKA 'The Evo'). This is one of our more energy-efficient dehumidifiers that puts out less heat than our other dehumidifiers so it won't raise the indoor temperature of your home or business as much as our more industrial equipment. The one on the left is called Dri-Eaz 7000XLi (AKA 'The Big Dehu'). One of our more powerful and heavier dehumidifiers, this is mainly used for bigger commercial jobs and extremely humid environments to pull as much moisture out of the air as needed. Most of our equipment can be rented out as well for personal use.

Our "Mystery Machine"

Our first big purchase here at SERVPRO of Highland Village is an all-american Ram Roadmaster. Picking our van is one of the most important parts of the SERVPRO business because without it, we wouldn't be able to reliably service our community and their restoration needs. With plenty of room in the back for all our technical equipment, she's proven her use on multiple occasions so keep a sharp eye out for our own "Mystery Machine" in your area.
