Tropical storms are rapidly rotating storm systems characterized by a low-pressure center, a closed low-level atmospheric circulation, strong winds, and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain.
According to the latest update from NASA, Tropical Storm Barry formed during the morning of July 11 and the National Hurricane Center has issued several warnings and watches. The Dual-frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) measured storm top heights as high as 11.1 miles, which is extremely high and indicative of intense thunderstorm activity south of central Louisiana. Rainfall rates with these storms exceeded 4 inches per hour as well. The National Hurricane Center noted that "Strengthening is expected during the next day or two, and Barry could become a hurricane late Friday or early Saturday."

Containment is crucial during mold remediation projects!
One of the containments placed throughout the home during a remediation project.
Containment in remediation protocols and projects is an industry staple. Mold is a living organism and is actively seeking to expand its environment beyond its present location. As a licensed remediation company we set up containment around a visible mold bloom the moment we step onto the job site. Our true containment in an effective mold remediation is the entire building, not just the immediate area or room where we have visible growth.
The reason we contain the way we do is because the real culprit are the airborne spores that have already spread throughout the building or home. If improper containment is places the spores have the potential to be left behind and create further damage.
Pre and post remediation reports put together by mold assessment consultants help to demonstrate to the customer the improvement in air quality that we as the remediation contractor need to provide.

We are honored to take part in this tournament every year.
Mold Remediation Inspection
As most home and business owners know, the reason for a mold remediation inspection is to identify whether you have a mold problem. The inspection will conclude one of two things:
1. You DON'T have an issue and your concerns are alleviated by the inspection or a report provided by a Mold Assessment Consultant.
2. You DO have an issue and remediation should be performed as soon as possible.
Honestly, we would all prefer the outcome to be number one right? As most of our customers know the answer is usually number two. Our trained team of specialists can perform an inspection and if a Mold Assessment Consultant is required, we work with several frequently that we could refer to provide a protocol.
If you have concerns about microbial growth, give our office a call today. Our team would be happy to walk you through our process. 972-420-4771
Be prepared for the storm!
Emergency Supply Kit
It is important for homeowners to build an emergency supply kit and develop a communication plan for when disaster strikes. In the photo you will find a few suggestions for your basic emergency supply kit. Here are some other things to help prepare you for the upcoming storms.
- Unplug any electronic equipment before the storm arrives.
- Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
- If you are outdoors, get inside a building, home or hard top vehicle (not a convertible)
- Shutter windows and secure outside doors. If shutters are not available, close window blinds, shades or curtains.
If you have experienced water damage at your home or business from the recent storms, give SERVPRO of Flower Mound a call to perform an inspection today. 972-420-4771

Rain rain go away!
SERVPRO of Flower Mound technician extracting standing water from a residence in Allen, Tx.
There was a large storm that came through the DFW area which caused a lot of damage to homes and businesses.
This home in Allen, Tx received quite a bit of water damage that affected multiple rooms. They knew to call SERVPRO in their time of need and our crew was onsite fast in order to avoid secondary damage. One of our technicians is shown here extracting water from the carpet in one of the bedrooms. It's extremely important to remove as much standing water as possible as quickly as possible in order to restore items instead of replacing them.
Once the standing water was removed we were able to float and dry the carpet in order to relay it. This not only keeps costs low but it also reduces interruption for the customer.
SERVPRO green throughout this mold remediation project!
Remediation project completed in Dallas, Tx.
We received a call from a customer located in Dallas that was in need of mold remediation as soon as possible in order to sell his home. He had already reached out to a mold assessment consultant to draft a remediation protocol and was able to provide it to us. The scope of work was very specific but nothing our team couldn't handle!
As you can see from the photo, containment was key in this project and was required on all flooring. Now we personally love the SERVPRO green look however, this was only temporary until we received clearance. Our team completed the work and passed clearance within the timeline of the customers closing date which made him extremely happy!
Another job well done crew!
