We Help You Get Back To Business In Oak Cliff After A Water Damage Disaster

7/8/2019 (Permalink)

When you experience water damage such as a busted water line. We have the equipment and fast action to mitigate the water damage.

Getting Your Oak Cliff Restaurant Dry After A Loss Incident

Water loss incidents are far more dramatic in an Oak Cliff business, as a higher volume of people end up displaced without a prompt response to get the situation resolved. With an establishment in the food and beverage industry, you have added levels of concern involved in the recovery of your business after water damage spreads through the inside. There are many ways that your staff and the custodial team can get this situation under control if they act quickly before the damage becomes too severe.

As much as many business owners have trusted our SERVPRO professionals to help overcome water damage to Oak Cliff buildings in the past, the full measure of our expertise and resources is not always necessary for smaller scale water emergencies. The first step, as with any loss incident of this variety, is to determine the source and work to stop the flow of water to this breach or vulnerability until the appropriately qualified repair personnel can arrive to complete this task.

The focus now is on getting the restaurant dry so that you can avert a more damaging condition like mold or microbial growth, which can become very damaging to both your reputation and standing with the health department. Mold does not seat in dry locations, meaning that getting the work started to clear out moisture and dampness is wise. While you might not have the commercial grade drying and recovery equipment available to our SERVPRO team at your disposal, there are machines that you can rent that can help you to make this task more thorough when dealing with water damage.

From local home improvement and hardware locations, you can often find a selection of:

Air movers and drying fans
Dehumidification units
Extraction tools

Depending on the situation in your restaurant, different tools and equipment might be necessary to get the building dried out. You can trust our SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas team to arrive quickly to help if the situation gets out of control or you need a second look at your recovery efforts. Give us a call anytime at (214) 463-5880.

Common Water Damage Problems For Dallas Offices That SERVPRO Can Fix

One of the most pressing problems for our nationwide corporate clients with water damage in their offices is minimal interference with daily operations from our crews. While some large-scale damages like floods might shut down an entire area or floor of a building at once, most of our work involves localized and minimally intrusive solutions for common water damage issues in office buildings. Here are several common issues we come across, and how we take steps to stay out of the way when we handle them.

Leaks
Leaks constitute a majority of the water damage calls we get from Dallas offices because they are both hard to predict and time-sensitive issues. SERVPRO responds Faster to Any Size Disaster, even small leaks that might seem unimportant and minimally intrusive to your daily business. However, without a fast reaction to the problem, a small leak could cause hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of damages. We come in shortly after your call to identify the source of the leak, cut it off, apply localized drying processes to the area, and clean up any visible damages we can identify. This entire process can often happen within just a few hours of your initial call.

Small Floods
A busted faucet or malfunctioning break room appliance can cause a small flood in part of the building before you have a chance to shut off the water. While these issues do typically require the help of a certified damage mitigation company like SERVPRO to stop mold growth and other complications from happening, we take care to cordon off only the affected areas while drying any remaining moisture out.

Sprinklers
Whether for a real fire or an accident, sprinklers going off in your office can sometimes cause severe damages. Depending on how long the sprinklers were activated for and what parts of the building they soaked, we may need to implement more intensive drying solutions such as heavy-duty air movers and dehumidifiers. If the damage is light, however, we may not even need to interrupt a workday to do our job.

SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas has years of experience helping corporate clients overcome everything from day-to-day maintenance and leaks to large-scale flooding and storm damage. Call us 24/7 at (214) 463-5880.

You Can Depend On Our Experts At SERVPRO To Restore Your Fire Damaged Dallas Restaurant

2/11/2019 (Permalink)

We are ready 24/7 to respond to your call!

Responding To Fire And Smoke Damage In Your Dallas Restaurant

A fire breaks out in your Dallas dining establishment. It is short lived as sprinkler systems, and alert employees douse the fire quickly. The smoke and soot that a commercial kitchen fire produces can spread fast, moving into other areas of your restaurant even though the flames did not damage those spaces directly. Well-qualified technicians, following fire restoration industry best standards, implement a plan that manages all aspects of the recovery and gets you back in business.

Commercial fire and smoke damage are a Dallas restaurant owners greatest fears. Not only does the emergency expose employees and customers to immediate danger, but an inexpert restoration effort can also drive customers away if the lingering effects of the smoke and soot are not eliminated. Even if your establishment has a trusted cleaning company or on-staff housekeeping staff, our skills and training are critical to complete all aspects of smoke and fire cleanup and restoration.

SERVPRO sends IICRC-trained and certified employees and fully equipped service vehicles as quickly as possible after your call for help. A seasoned crew leader assesses the damage and prioritizes the tasks. Water and chemical extinguishing substance removal is first, followed by an evaluation of the smoke damage.

The protein-fueled fire usual in kitchens creates a noxious smelling smoke that deposits a thin, extremely adhesive soot on surfaces. SERVPRO professionals use appropriately matched cleansers on this lacquer-like coating. We also choose tools that help our crew loosen and dislodge the residue, employing agitation and careful abrasion to remove the smoke damage. The team does not limit our efforts to the kitchen. Every surface in all the spaces -- dining areas, restrooms, coat checks, front desk, lounges, and the rest -- are inspected, cleaned, and treated.

Smoky odors persist in the air and settle on surfaces, particles carrying the smell working their way into crevices and fabrics. SERVPRO handles odor eliminating systematically, removing foul-smelling objects and cleaning thoroughly to begin. Advanced odor elimination technologies like thermal fogging and hydroxyl generators seek out the smallest odor bearing particles. These options neutralize the smell at the molecular level, ridding your restaurant of this last sign of smoke damage, not merely covering up the stench.

Rely on SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas to handle all the challenges of restoring the smoke and other fire damage in your commercial property. We are ready 24/7 to respond to your call at (214) 463-5880.
