Water Damage - Hurst, Texas

Water Damage Water Damage - Hurst, Texas A Hurst, Texas home flooded when a sink overflowed

This Euless, Texas home suffered water damage when sink overflowed. We were called in to perform the water extraction.

Avoiding a sink overflow isn’t hard to do. You just have to keep in mind that most overflows happen due to a clogged drain. If you can keep your drain clear, water should be able to flow to the sewers as it’s intended to. Here are a few tips on just how to do that:

  • Don’t dispose of food scraps through your sink. They may fit in the drain, but as more and more food particles accumulate, they can form a solid clog that will restrict water movement.
  • Just because fat, oil and grease look fluid doesn’t mean they’ll go right along with water to the sewers. These substances can deposit and solidify in your drainage pipe and cause a clog later on.Visit ceasethegrease.org to learn more about proper grease disposal and avoid FOG related clogs.
  • Avoid getting hair into your sink. Like solid food particles, hair can accumulate, ball up and create a barrier that prevents the escape of water into the sewage system.
  • Always have a drain cover to filter out large, solid objects that may fall into your sink’s drainage pipe. Remove them only when cleaning your sink.
  • Don’t let your kids play with water in your sink. Children can get very creative and they’ve been known to try and flush small toys down sink drainages. Action figures and toy cars are some of the most difficult clogs to clear, so educate your kids on this subject early on.

Water Extraction and Cleanup - Euless, Texas

4/28/2017 (Permalink)

4/28/2017

We received a call from a Euless homeowner and we were onsite within an hour to help. The faulty hose on the washing machine was the cause of several flooded rooms in this home. We were able to extract the water immediately and begin the drying process. The drying was complete within 4 days and the homeowners were very satisfied with our quick response and service.

Washing machine flooding is one of the top insurance claims filed by homeowners. Here are a few ways to avoid this disaster:

  • Installing a washing machine valve shutoff kit
  • Switch out rubber hoses for braided hoses
  • Don't leave the house while machine is running
  • Twice a month, run your machine on a hot water cycle without anything in it. This can possibly clear any grease or blockage from the pipes.

Fire Damage - Bedford, Texas

4/28/2017 (Permalink)

4/28/2017

An electrical fire in the attic was the cause of severe damage to this Bedford, Texas home. The insurance company called us out to assess the damages . We determined we needed to tear out the ceiling in order to properly clean the area. We deodorized and sanitized the home and prepared it for reconstruction. The homeowner was very pleased with our service.

Avoid overloading your home's electrical circuits

  • Minimize the amount of electrical equipment you plug into each outlet. Minimize your use of power strips as much as possible, trying instead to limit the use of each outlet to the 2 plugs it provides.
  • If your home is very old, it may have very few circuits, as plug-in appliances and equipment were not as numerous when the home was built. Have an electrician run new wiring and install new circuit breakers on your electrical panel.
  • Replace or discard any frayed wiring
  • While electrical tape can be used to provide temporary protection against arcing or melting of exposed conductors, it should not be used as a permanent solution.
  • Replace any old wiring in your home
  • If you are relying heavily on extension cords or if your circuit breakers trip regularly, you are likely drawing more power than your old wiring can handle. Have an electrician inspect your home's wiring as soon as possible.
  • Older homes may contain aluminum wiring, which poses a more significant risk of degrading and causing fires than copper wiring.
  • Having an electrician replace all or most of your home's wiring will provide a virtual guarantee against electrical fires for decades.
  • Ensure that every electrical product you use is UL-listed
  • Some products, like extension cords and batteries, are often counterfeited using extremely flimsy and cheap copper that poses an immense fire risk. On these types of products, UL utilizes a holographic logo that is difficult to fake817-595-0004 or 817-595-2506Follow us on Twitter @SERVPROHEBG

Water Cleanup - Hurst, Texas

4/28/2017 (Permalink)

4/28/17

This home in Hurst, Texas had several rooms flood when a toilet in the guest bathroom overflowed. When we arrived, we were able to extract the water and begin the drying process. When our job was complete, the owners were very pleased with our service and quick response time. Below is a list of quick ways to stop an overflowing toilet and avoid a flooded home.

How to Stop an Overflowing Toilet

  • Quickly remove the lid from the toilet tank and set it aside. 
  • Reach inside the toilet tank and press down on the flapper valve. The flapper is the rubber piece in the bottom center of the tank. Doing this will stop more water from getting into the bowl and should prevent it from overflowing over the sides.
  • Once you’ve got the flapper valve secured, stop the tank from filling by lifting up on the float that operates the tank fill valve. If after about a minute the water level drops back to normal, you should be able to let go of the float and let the bowl refill without worrying about it overflowing. 
  • If the water level doesn’t start to drop after about a minute, continue to hold the float while you shut off the water at the toilet supply valve, located near the floor or in the wall behind the toilet.
  • Once the Toilet Has Stopped Overflowing
  • Stop using all toilets, sinks and other plumbing fixtures.
  • Try to use a plunger to see if you can remove any blockages from the drain.
  • Try to find the source of the problem, starting from the fixtures in the bathroom and working your way up.
  • If only one toilet is blocked, the problem is most likely just with that toilet. If multiple toilets are affected, you might have a blocked system drain or a failing septic field. 
  • If you can't stop the overflow on your own, call a plumber. And if it's too late, call SERVPRO!817-595-0004 or 817-595-2506Follow us on Twitter @SERVPROHEBG

Water Damage - Bedford, Texas

4/28/2017 (Permalink)

4/28/2017

 

A home in Bedford, Texas had a dishwasher that overflowed and flooded the kitchen. Hand soap was accidentally used instead of detergent and the simple mistake caused a huge mess. We were called in to clean up the damage. We first extracted the water and then we used our advanced drying equipment to dry the floor to prevent any further damage or mold growth. Due to the extensive damage at the base of the kitchen island, it had to be replaced. The following list shows how to handle an overflowing dishwasher:

  • Cancel the cycle so the dishwasher drains the water. Place towels on the floor under the machine to catch the water and suds that are still spilling out. Then remove all the dishes and put them in the sink.
  • Slide out the bottom rack and liberally pour table salt on top of the suds to break down the foam. Run a quick rinse-only cycle and check for remaining suds.
  • If there are still tons of suds pouring out of the dishwasher, add more salt and repeat the rinse cycle until the foam stops coming out of the machine.
  • Once the foam starts to dissipate, toss a tray or so of ice cubes onto the remaining suds and allow them to melt. Push the cancel button to drain the melted ice. Run another quick rinse cycle, and repeat the ice cube-rinse sequence until all the suds are gone.

Water Cleanup - Euless, Texas

4/28/2017 (Permalink)

4/28/2017

 

The damage to the bedroom and bathroom in this Euless, Texas home were due to a toilet that had overflowed. We were able to respond quickly and perform the water cleanup to prevent any permanent damage. Once the water was removed, we used our advanced drying equipment to dry the carpet and baseboards.

The following is a list of reasons why our carpet drying techniques are so important.

  • Excessive moisture can cause damage to the structural integrity of the carpet itself.
  • Walking on a wet carpet can contribute to wear, shortening the carpet’s life expectancy
  • If carpet is still moist after cleaning and it has traffic before it is dry, the carpet is more apt to get dirty at a faster rate
  • If carpet stays wet, it can mold and mildew, damaging the carpet fibers and backing, as well as creating a health hazard
  • Moisture that is left in the carpet can make the carpet delaminate, which means the backing comes apart
