Mild Storm Damage Delays Building Under Construction in North, TX

10/26/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Westfield was called out to a partially flooded building that was under construction in North, TX.  Flash flooding was the source of water puddles in sections of the building.  Fortunately, mainly concrete flooring was affected.  The water, however, had gotten in-depth in some areas and affected a very important electrical room.  SERVPRO of Westfield extracted water from the structure before setting up drying equipment.

After receiving the weekend call for help from the customer, the technicians were able to arrive on site within an hour and a half.  The customer called SERVPRO of Westfield with a level of confidence because we had previously performed restoration for the customer. Our team worked quickly to get this building back functioning in order for the contractors to finish production on schedule.

Commercial Building: Water Damage Detection

10/23/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Commercial Building: Water Damage Detection Even on your lunch break, give SERVPRO of Westfield a call, we're here to help (281) 907-0018.

Being the owner of a commercial property in Houston, TX and the surrounding areas, you will likely be responsible for maintaining its pipework including repairs if things go wrong. Since most office buildings and businesses remain unoccupied at night and on weekends, the potential for water damage can be very high on these premises.

Detecting Water Damage

Leaks can be caused either suddenly as in the case of bursting pipes, which can be detected instantly or gradually by a hose or pipe leaking slowly over a period of time. Underground leaks are another common problem. To find out if your business has a water leak look for the following signs:

  • Do you hear the sound of running water?
  • Are any wet areas or running water visible?
  • Can you detect an unusual drop in water pressure?

If you find yourself answering yes to any of these questions in Houston, TX and the surrounding areas, there is a good chance of an undetected water leak present at your business. SERVPRO® of Westfield is available to come out to your place of business and check for moisture in your walls, floors, and ceiling. If you do in fact have a water leak, we will be able to successfully help with the structural drying of your business.

Fire Safety Tips: Pets Are Important Too

10/17/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Fire Safety Tips: Pets Are Important Too For some, pets are considered family too.

At any given moment, a fire emergency can take place in the North Houston area or abroad, and though unexpected; it can be beneficial to already have a plan in place for everyone in your home to evacuate and meet in a safe location. While you should always be most focused on keeping yourself and your family safe, you can also spend some time on pet preparation so that you can have a better chance of getting your pets out of danger as well. 

For some, pets are considered family also. You can be better prepared to keep your pets safe during a fire emergency by following these safety tips:

1. Practice Evacuating 

In the confusion caused by a fire, it can be hard to think of everything you need to do right away. If you have a plan in place and practice it a few times, you can be better prepared to handle a fire emergency. This can not only be helpful for pet safety, but also for the safety of everyone in your household. 

2. Notice Where Your Pets Are 

An important part of the planning process can be noticing where your pets usually spend their time. It can be especially helpful to note where they hide when frightened. You don’t want to put yourself at risk by spending too much time searching for your dog or cat during a fire emergency, but you can be better prepared to get yourself and your pets out as soon as possible by having a checklist of areas you can look. 

3. Keep Collars and Leashes Handy

Fires can be especially frightening to pets. By keeping their collars and leashes handy, you can more easily guide them out of the house. If you are unable to find them, it can be easier for the fire department to get them out if they are wearing collars. It can be a good idea to hang leashes by the door you are planning to evacuate through.

Our SERVPRO of Westfield Technicians are highly trained in property restoration.

When a commercial building must shut down due to water damage, their first priority is to reopen to support their customers, employees, and owners. SERVPRO of Westfield got a call from the facilities manager of a Houston, TX commercial building, regarding water damage due to seeping flood water. We arrived promptly and began with a quick inspection to confirm the complete area of water damage. 
 
In this particular commercial building, majority of the office consisted of carpeted area. Our technicians used an extraction wand to draw out nearly all of the water. We set up dehumidifiers to draw the damp air outside. We installed air movers at key points to force warm, dry air across the floors and walls. Our technicians directed and controlled the level of this air flow to prevent additional damage while drying out the building. 

If disaster should ever strike your business make sure to call SERVPRO of Westfield, we are here to help you get back to business as quickly as possible.

Mold Prevention

10/11/2018 (Permalink)

Mold can grow anywhere: on carpet, clothing, food, paper, and even in places you can't see, such as the backside of drywall, areas inside walls around leaking or condensing pipes, and above ceiling tiles.

Not only is having a mold problem difficult and costly to fix, but mold can also possibly produce allergens and irritants.

So what can you do if you're concerned about mold growing in your home? The best approach is preventing mold before it becomes a problem. The key to mold prevention is simple: moisture control.

9 Tips to Help Prevent Mold:

  1. Identify problem areas in your home and correct them. You can't mold-proof your home, but you can make it mold-resistant. Do you notice frequent condensation on an upstairs window? Is there a water stain on the ceiling from a persistent leak? Preventing mold from growing or spreading might be as simple as ripping up carpet in a damp basement, installing mold-resistant products, or repairing damaged gutters. 
  2. Dry wet areas immediately. Mold can't grow without moisture, so tackle wet areas right away. If you've experienced a flood, remove water-damaged carpets, bedding, and furniture if they can't be completely dried. Even everyday occurrences need attention: don't leave wet items lying around the house, and make sure to dry the floor and walls after a shower. Don't leave wet clothes in the washing machine, where mold can spread quickly. Hang them to dry — preferably outside or in areas with good air circulation.
  3. Prevent moisture with proper ventilation. It may be that your routine domestic activities are encouraging the growth of mold in your home. Make sure an activity as simple as cooking dinner, taking a shower, or doing a load of laundry doesn't invite mold by providing proper ventilation in your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, and any other high-moisture area. Your energy-efficient home may be holding moisture inside, so open a window when cooking or washing dishes or showering, or run an exhaust fan.
  4. Equip your home with mold-resistant products. Building a new home or renovating an old one? Use mold-resistant products like mold-resistant drywall or mold-resistant Sheetrock, and mold inhibitors for paints. Moisture-resistant drywall is especially valuable in areas prone to wetness, such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements, and kitchens.
  5. Monitor humidity indoors. Purchasing a moisture might be great, but you can also detect high humidity by simply paying attention to potential problem areas in your home. Telltale signs of excessive humidity include condensation on windows, pipes, and walls.
  6. Direct water away from your home. If the ground around your home isn't sufficiently sloped away from the foundation, water may collect there and seep into your crawlspace or basement.
  7. Clean or repair roof gutters. A mold problem might be a simple matter of a roof that is leaking because of full or damaged gutters.
  8. Improve air flow in your home. According to the EPA, as temperatures drop, the air is able to hold less moisture. Without good air flow in your home, that excess moisture may appear on your walls, windows and floors.
  9. Keep mold off household plants. The moist soil in indoor plants is a perfect breeding ground for mold. Instead of getting rid of your plants, try adding a bit of Taheebo tea to the water you give to your houseplants.

For areas that have already fallen victim to mold, there is hope. SERVPRO of Westfield is a leader in the North Houston community in mold remediation and here to help! Please call (281) 907-0018 and we will make it “Like it never even happened.”

Houston, TX Forecast - Rain, Rain and More Rain

10/10/2018 (Permalink)

The forecast in Houston, TX calls for several heavy downpours, increasing daily. Continuous heavy rain can heighten safety concerns.

Heavy rain and flooding are considered two of the most common and widespread natural disasters in the United States.  No matter the location, there is always potential for flood damage.  In the last 5 years, via floodsmart.gov reports, all 50 states have experienced floods or flash floods.  Just because you haven't experienced a flood in the past, does not mean you won't in the future. 

Please remember these safety tips:

  • Stay away from floodwaters.  Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet.
  • If you approach a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way.  If you are caught on a flooded road and waters are rising rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground.  Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
  • Keep children out of the water.  They can be curious and often lack judgment about running water or contaminated water.

If flood damage strikes your Houston, TX home or business, don’t hesitate to contact SERVPRO of Westfield (281) 907-0018. Even minor floods have the potential to cause major damage to a structure when not treated quickly and properly, and the cleanup is often an overwhelming task.  SERVPRO is prepared to handle any size disaster.
