Our office is licensed with the state of Texas to perform mold remediation services. When a contamination reaches over 25 contiguous square feet we are required to call in a mold assessment consultant to take air samples and draw up a remediation protocol and clear the project once it has been completed. You'll see in this photo it was clearly necessary as this is just one room showing the growth.

Busted Windows, Falling Drywall and Insulation Isn't Our Idea of a Fun Friday Night

Storm Damage Busted Windows, Falling Drywall and Insulation Isn't Our Idea of a Fun Friday Night Broken windows, fallen ceiling, and debris from outside laying on the floor after the storm.

When a severe storm came through Flower Mound several homes and businesses were affected. After the storm board ups, demo, water restoration, roof tarps, and debri haul off were required. All of these were required on this one home.

The hail not only affected the roof causing the ceiling in multiple rooms to fall in but the windows were busted out which caused debris from the outdoors to fly in. You'll notice in the picture a tree branch is laying among the drywall and insulation on the floor.

Our highly trained team boarded up all of the broken windows, removed the debris, restored the structure, and cleaned the carpets. The customer was surprised at the difference from after the storm to when we completed the scope of work. SERVPRO of Flower Mound is here to help 24/7!

Fire Damage Fire in the Kitchen Caused Smoke Damage Throughout this Wylie Home Kitchen where the fire started in this Wylie, Texas home

After the Wylie hail storm causing so much damage, we felt for these customers who have now experienced a fire. Everything in their home was recently replaced and they were now having to go through the process all over again.

The fire started in the kitchen and went into the living room before a neighbor called noticed the smoke and called the local fire department. Luckily the fire department arrived onsite before the flames could reach other rooms. Unfortunately however, the smoke reached every little inch of the home.

We walked through the fire restoration process with the customers and began taking their 911 emergency textiles in order to get them back within 48 hours. The pack out, demo, and cleanup went quickly. The build back is still in progress and we can't wait to post the after photo of their new home!

Besides causing a major business interruption, a mold problem can present a serious health risk for people exposed at your commercial property. Mold infestations can be caused by minor water intrusions, like a slow roof leak or loose plumbing fitting. Every hour spent cleaning up is an hour of lost revenue and productivity.

This office in Greenville, Texas experienced a mold issue behind the cove base and wallpaper in an exit hall. There had been a slow leak from rain water under the door that went unnoticed for a while. A mold assessment consultant was brought in to take air samples and provide a remediation protocol.

Once we received the protocol and discussed the scope of work with the customer we were able to remediate the issue in one evening after the employees had left for the day. After the 48 hour required wait time for clearance the project passed with no issues!
