Water Damage? Leave it to the Professionals

Water Damage Water Damage? Leave it to the Professionals Suffering with water damage? Leave it to the professionals at SERVPRO of Prosper/Little Elm.

Most people don't actively plan on water damage in their homes or businesses, so deciding the proper way to restore a flood damaged property is important.

With so many aspects of life becoming increasingly more expensive by the day, it is no wonder that so many Americans choose to go the Do-It-Yourself route on an ever expanding wide array of tasks. While changing one's own oil or even doing one's own drywall job is commendable, there are still some jobs that are best left to the professionals. Water damage restoration and mitigation is one of them.

Each year, billions of dollars in property damage occur all over the United States due to flood damage. While some of these properties will inevitably be written off, the vast majority are completely salvageable. This means that, even though massive property damage was ultimately incurred, there absolutely never should have been any to begin with. All too often, this is the simple result of the property owner not recognizing the severity of the situation and taking the proper steps to remedy it.

One of those important steps is to mitigate damage after a flood.

Recognizing the Signs of Water Damage

11/29/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Recognizing the Signs of Water Damage There are some areas of your home that will be more at risk for water damage than others.

Water damage can be tricky to spot sometimes, but with these tips and tricks SERVPRO of Prosper/Little Elm can help you recognize whether you’re experiencing water damage in your home or property.

There are several things to look for such as colorations, textures, or even smells caused by water damage. Recognizing the signs of water damage can also help you prevent costly mold damage from developing.

  1. Pooling Water – This one is the most clear sign of water damage. You can usually find these around home appliances like toilets or water heaters. Pooling water can form on the ground from a leaky ceiling.
  2. Coloration – Water damage can cause discoloration on home structures. These are most notable on ceilings or walls. Usually water damage in a ceiling or wall will cause a yellow or brown discoloration. There can also be texture changes in the structure.
  3. Textures – Bubbling or peeling of paint on walls or ceilings is a sign of water damage if no discoloration is spotted. When it comes to flooring, keep a keen eye out for any warping, sagging, or swelling of flooring.
  4. Smells/Odors – Smells or odors are a sign of mildew from water damage that has gone undiscovered. This often happens in basements or under the home.

There are some areas of your home that will be more at risk for water damage than others, and it’s a good idea to periodically check on them so that you catch any water damage before it begins to do more damage to your property.

Some of the most frequent and at-risk places in your home for water damage are the following:

  • Floors
  • Walls
  • Ceilings
  • Roof
  • Building Foundation
  • Home Appliances

If you have discovered water damage in your home, it’s time to call a professional. SERVPRO of Prosper/Little Elm can help you out. Call us immediately at (972) 668-3117or REQUEST HELP ONLINE if you have been affected by water damage.

Mold Remediation in McKinney, TX

Mold Remediation Mold Remediation in McKinney, TX Mold can take over your property and spread within 48 hours.

SERVPRO of Prosper/Little Elm is excited to announce that we are offering mold remediation in McKinney, TX!

All it takes is the tiniest of water leaks or extra humidity (maybe due to all of the rain we’ve had recently!) for mold to take its place in your McKinney home or business. Unfortunately, mold can take over your property and spread within 48 hours. The mold can cause health risks due to allergens and other irritants.

SERVPRO of Prosper/Little Elm can come out and inspect your home or commercial property to diagnose the severity of the mold problem you may be facing. We use specialized equipment and trained professionals in order to properly inspect and make a judgment on your property’s mold problems!

Understanding mold and how it forms is essential when it comes to knowing whether or not your property is at risk.

It isn’t common knowledge, but mold is almost everywhere both inside and outside! Mold spores float around in the air and come into your home through openings such as doors or windows. They can even slip in through your AC or heating systems.

Mold spores being in the air isn’t a problem unless you have higher than normal humidity or moisture in your home or business. Once mold spores are exposed to moisture, they form and grow into colonies of mold. Before we even begin mold remediation, we need to identify the sources of water or moisture. If we remediate mold without identifying the point of moisture production, then the mold will just form again!

You may notice mold in your home by the musty smell it can produce. There are also other signs of mold you can use to determine if you may currently have mold inside your house or business.

If you think your business or home has mold, then SERVPRO of Prosper/Little Elm can offer our mold remediation in McKinney, TX! Give us a call at (972) 668-3117 or request help online through our website!

Tornado Safety – What to Do When a Tornado Hits

11/5/2018 (Permalink)

Being in the middle of a tornado is a scary experience, but SERVPRO of Prosper/Little Elm wants to help you with some safety tips when it comes to tornadoes near your home.

  • Find a Safe Place – find a place in your home that has no windows such as a basement or interior room like a closet and make this the place where you and your family or pets sit out the storm.
  • Listen – If you know a tornado is on the way, listen to a local radio station or put the local weather station on your TV on so you know when the danger has passed or if the danger has increased.
  • Outdoors – If you are outdoors when a tornado is in the area, then seek shelter immediately. If shelter is not nearby, make sure you are inside a vehicle and drive to a shelter. Do NOT park or sit underneath a bridge or overpass, these create wind tunnels. If there are debris flying around, pull over and keep your car on. Put your head down below your car windows and cover your head. You can use your hands and a blanket to cover your head if available.
  • Post-Tornado – After the tornado threat has passed, make sure to let your friends and family know that you are okay. Keep an eye on the news just in case a new tornado lands and you need to start your safety procedures over. Check on everyone who went through the tornado with you to make sure they are not injured or under any emotional duress.

Keeping safe during a tornado can be simple, and we hope that these tips will help you be more prepared if a tornado ever lands near you!

If you have tornado or storm damage on or in your home, it’s time to call a professional. SERVPRO of Prosper/Little Elm can help you out. Call us immediately at (972) 668-3117or REQUEST HELP ONLINE if you have been affected by tornado damage.

We work with your insurance! For a stress-free claims process, SERVPRO can help manage the insurance paperwork and process.
