man on telephone Homeowners in North Richland Hills can rely on us for immediate assistance whenever disaster strikes.

Disasters have absolutely no sense of timing, right? Anything that can go wrong will go wrong, and at the worst time too. 

A flood, tornado, heavy rainfall, or plumbing issue like clogged sewer lines, broken water pipe, cracks in valves, etc., lead to water pouring down the ceilings and walls and pooling in your basement. When not taken care of instantly, mold and mildew take root. 

If you’re dealing with any type of home emergency, whether it’s damage from a grease fire, mold growth, or ceiling leak, all you want is a quick response. 

When tragedy strikes, you can count on SERVPRO of North Richland Hills. 

With more than 50 years of combined experience in cleanup, repair, and restoration services, we’re a top-rated company with a proven record of satisfied clients. At SERVPRO, we’re always the first to return your call. 

Act Now: Call Our Fort Worth Mold Remediation Service 

Mold growth is one of the greatest unseen hazards for homes in Fort Worth. The uncontrolled growth results in poor indoor air quality and can weaken the home's structure. Moreover, mold can quickly spread to other areas of your home if not contained in time. And if you’re looking to sell your home, mold issues can severely impact your ability to sell it quickly and for top dollar. 

Call a full-service remediation company to stop mold in its musty tracks. And no one’s better at remediating mold like SERVPRO. Our technicians understand mold and offer proper mold removal services instead of simply covering it up. 

From customer Kelly M:

During one the most difficult times of our lives, SERVPRO showed up and helped us navigate through the wreckage the tornado created to our brand new home in Preston Hollow. We are so thankful for the professionalism and swiftness of Rebecca, Melanie and Robert. Team ServoPro made an amazing difference during a trying time for our family. Thank you!

Mold Inspection and Abatement Process

Mold remediation involves identifying location, the extent of damage, safe removal, and finally, sanitation of the space. In cases where moisture has penetrated within the structure or where the material can’t be dried thoroughly, it's essential to tear out the moldy parts and then perform a repair or restoration.

It isn’t a DIY job because it requires trained expertise that SERVPRO mold specialists can deliver. Our services include mold cleaning, sanitization, mold odor removal, and restoration.

From customer Stephanie M:

Arthur and Patrick ROCKED setting everything up and ensuring the process would save the flooring if possible.  Not only were they good at their jobs, they were friendly, polite, and courteous--things lacking in today's customer service industry.  Hands down, I will absolutely speak praises for SERVPRO NRH, especially in regards to Arthur and Patrick and Jeremy.

Call SERVPRO of North Richland Hills for Odor Removal

2/10/2022 (Permalink)

woman holding her nose A professional odor removal service like SERVPRO knows how to safely get rid of unpleasant odors.

Odor removal is one of the most challenging aspects of damage restoration. Foul stenches can linger for a long time after a fire or flood. The problem with getting rid of bad odors after a disaster is that the source of the unpleasant smell is not always apparent. In these cases, you should call SERVPRO — your local experts in odor removal.

Getting rid of foul odors isn’t connected with water damage or fire damage restoration. Instead, a pungent smell or malodor can result from rodent infestations, pet urine, gas, blocked sewer lines, cigarette smoke residue, or mold growth. 

In some cases, the presence of rancid or funky odors can indicate the air is unhealthy to breathe. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that large mold infestations can cause a stale, musty smell. A report in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives warned that if you see or smell mold, you must clean it out immediately. 

Your Trusted Odor Removal Experts

There are several reasons to call SERVPRO if you live in North Richland Hills and require odor removal. Here are three reasons to choose us if your home has a severe odor problem related to an emergency.

1. Save Money

First, trusting professionals to handle odor removal is cheaper in the long run. You could waste money on various cleaning agents, only to have the foul smell remain. Also, you may have to buy more chemicals than you need to remedy the odor issue. 

2. Eliminate Odors for Good

Our trained professional technicians have experience in knowing how to remove stubborn household odors at the source. For example, we don’t use masking methods like air fresheners to deodorize a building. Instead, we only use high-quality absorption, adsorption, disinfectants, and sanitizers to eliminate foul smells at the source.

3. Avoid Handling Toxic Chemicals

Extreme care is necessary when handling certain chemicals for odor removal. Additionally, it’s vital to have the required protective gear and equipment to protect your health. Also, cleaning up toxic waste after a flood can be risky when dealing with unknown biohazards. A professional odor removal service like SERVPRO knows how to safely get rid of unpleasant odors.

Four-Step Odor Removal Process 

You can rely on SERVPRO for water and fire damage restoration because our odor removal techniques use a trusted four-step process:

  • Remove the odor at the source and improve air quality.
  • Clean all surfaces from contaminants.
  • Use odor penetration techniques to deodorize porous materials and remove bad smells.
  • Seal surfaces to prevent offensive odors when removing them is impractical or too expensive.

Odor removal is a part of our Fort Worth fire damage restoration services. If your property has been damaged by fire, you can call us on (817) 589-1499 for a free inspection and no-obligation quote. Or contact us online. Additionally, SERVPRO also specializes in all types of odor removal, whatever the source.

Choosing Cleanup and Restoration Company: Top 3 Tips

12/9/2021 (Permalink)

drywall restoration services If you’re in need of the best cleanup and restoration company in North Richland Hills, look no further than to SERVPRO.

According to the EPA, the average household’s leaks can cause a near waste of 10,000 gallons of water every year. With such leaks occurring in a home, it’s vital that homeowners are aware of the potential dangers of water damage — even after the leak is fixed.

Water damage can devastate a home’s structure and weaken its foundation. Just as much (if not even more destructive), is the occurrence of fire damage as well. But no matter the issue at hand, you can always rely on the professional service of a cleanup and restoration company. The only problem is knowing which company to choose.

How Do I Know Which Company to Choose?

Finding the right restoration company can be difficult. When water damage occurs, choosing a Fort Worth water damage restoration company can become a mission in and of itself. 

For this reason, SERVPRO has provided three tips below for you to keep in mind when looking for the right contractor.

1. Experience

Experience is probably the most important factor you have to look out for when choosing a cleanup and restoration company. Experience will show you how well a business has thrived due to their services as well as how knowledgeable they are.

Say you’ve found two different Fort Worth fire damage restoration companies. But one has been in operation longer than the other. You would likely choose the one that’s been operating for longer. As you’re looking for a cleanup and restoration company, however,  you shouldn’t just look at how long they’ve been in business. 

Make sure to also look into what services they provide and how often they provide those services.

2. Pricing

When it comes to the price, you don’t want to end up with a company that’s too expensive. On the flip side of that coin, you also don’t want to choose a company that’s priced too low.

While you do want to save money, choosing a cleanup and restoration company that’s priced too low can turn out to be a mistake. Low prices are often an indication that certain companies won’t provide the best work. With that being said, be on the lookout for a company that offers its services at a reasonable price.

SERVPRO always offers its services at reasonable rates when it comes to Fort Worth water damage restoration. Give us a call today at (817) 589-1499  to find out. 

3. Client Testimonials

What is arguably the most important thing to look out for in a cleanup and restoration company are client testimonials.

Testimonials will provide insight into how well a company treats its clients. More so, they will also explain how exemplary a certain company will perform a specific job. 

If, for example, you find yourself needing Fort Worth fire damage restoration, looking into reviews and testimonials for a company you found can show you how well they perform their job.

Looking For The Right Contractor? Look No Further

If you’re in need of the best cleanup and restoration company in North Richland Hills, look no further than to SERVPRO. We’ve been in business for 35+ years and offer a myriad of services ranging from fire to Fort Worth water damage restoration.

If you wish to inquire about our services, call us at (817) 589-1499. Or visit our contact page.

How to Prevent Mold in Your Attic

10/29/2021 (Permalink)

mold inside of vent In Fort Worth, storm season brings increased moisture into homes which can sometimes lead to mold. Here's how to prevent it.

After storm season in Fort Worth, water and moisture in walls can sometimes lead to concerns about mold in your home. The idea of mold in your attic can lead to immediate concerns about what this means for your home and your family. 

The good news is that it doesn't mean you have to live with mold for the rest of your life. There are certain steps you need to take in order to get rid of the problem once and for all.

At SERVPRO of North Richland Hills, we want you to feel safe and happy in your home, which is why we have prepared the following information you need to know about mold.

What is Mold?

To sum up, mold is a type of fungus that grows on wet surfaces and releases spores into the air.

How Do I Recognize it?

Even though mold can appear in various colors, usually, it is black, grey or green. It should be noted that you might find it on other objects as well, because mold can affect many parts of your house.

What to Do When I Find Mold in My Attic Space?

First of all, you need to find the source of humidity. The best way would be to identify and repair possible leaks in your home – roof, windows, etc.

Mold damage can be identified by the presence of visible mold on surfaces or discoloration. 

It is important to act quickly because mold can damage your walls and floors, making them weak. Moreover, if your home is left untreated for an extended period of time, it might lead to serious complications in the long term.

If the problem is not eliminated yet, we recommend that you call our professional mold removal service and ask for help.

How is Mold Treated?

There are many ways to get rid of mold. First, you might want to get rid of the source that causes humidity. For example, if there is a leak in your roof, you need to get it fixed as soon as possible.

Secondly, you should use dehumidifiers and air conditioners to remove the excess moisture in the air. Also, make sure you use fans if it is possible!

If the problem persists, we recommend that you contact our local professional mold removal and odor removal specialists for help.

Just like every other type of treatment, know that there are two methods used by SERVPRO franchises:

Air Spore Treatment (AST). It includes unique equipment that diffuses a microbial agent during the process of mold growth. The best part is that the spores don't damage your property or furniture!

A Life-Cycle Mold Treatment (LCMT). It implies small holes in the drywall and filling them with a sealing compound. If there are bigger damages, you might need to replace some parts of the wall.

While mold can be a serious issue, rest assured that there are ways to remediate any problem areas in your home. Whether you need an initial mold inspection or are ready for remediation services, you can rely on our professional Fort Worth Mold Remediation service team to take care of it so that you can enjoy a healthy and safe living environment. We offer a variety of services, including water damage restoration as well as fire and smoke damage repair. Call (817) 589-1499.

SERVPRO is a Reputable Company for Fort Worth Damage Restoration

3/16/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of North Richland Hills - image of Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned seal on window SERVPRO is one of the top-recognized brands in the damage restoration industry.

These days, people are smarter than ever about doing their research before making a decision. We sincerely appreciate this trend. As many businesses are acting in good faith, some care more about making fast money than building long-term relationships with customers. SERVPRO believes that trust is earned.

SERVPRO - A Big Name in Restoration

SERVPRO is one of the few top-recognized brands in the cleaning and restoration industry. Though we’ve earned our place, we don’t take this for granted. We got here through consistent and reliable service and our commitment to this has not wavered.

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned

Fort Worth businesses have done their best to keep their facilities safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, but sometimes a staff member comes up positive for the virus, and with contact tracing, they discover that several people have been infected.

The public can be apprehensive about coming into a business where there have been recent cases of COVID-19. SERVPRO works to restore public confidence by doing a complete commercial cleaning.

When the job is complete, businesses can post on social media that their facility is now Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned and display the SERVPRO shield on the premises.

The Reviews Are In

SERVPRO is the leading provider of:

This, plus many more professional cleaning and restoration services, including reconstruction. 

After decades of service in the Fort Worth area, we’ve accumulated several positive customer reviews (both Yelp and Facebook) and testimonials. It’s always nice to hear a “thank you” at the end of a job, but when our customers take time out of their day to leave us this feedback, we know we’ve fulfilled our mission in a meaningful way.

The Choice of Top Insurance Carriers

Insurance companies are very meticulous about the property loss process and for good reason. Insurance companies have the burden of needing to allocate resources wisely so that they can best serve all of their customers.

One of the ways to ensure that claims are properly managed is to steer their clients toward the most reputable cleaning companies and contractors. Because SERVPRO has built a solid relationship with many top insurance companies, we get many referrals from them.

Why Is SERVPRO Reputable?

How did SERVPRO become a trusted name in cleaning and restoration?

  • Accreditation - SERVPRO holds several certifications including IICRC. We are also licensed and bonded.
  • Fast response - We are here around the clock, every day of the year to respond to any emergency. We live up to this motto: “Faster to any size disaster.”

  • Thoroughness - We do a comprehensive inspection and testing so we can best address each situation. We create an action plan specific to the needs of each job and don’t stop until we’ve done every task.
  • Continuous education - SERVPRO provides advanced instruction on the latest cleaning techniques.
  • Commitment - We believe so strongly in the role that the restoration industry plays in public health that we work to recruit the next generation of restoration specialists. We visit schools to share what we do with young minds.

Why SERVPRO is the Leader in Fort Worth Water Damage Restoration

3/11/2021 (Permalink)

water damage restorations services in Fort Worth SERVPRO offers professional water damage restoration services to residents and businesses in the Fort Worth area.

Water damage recovery easily becomes an overwhelming responsibility for property owners. Aside from the gallons of water spread over the square footage of your space, you also have drywall, flooring, personal belongings, and sometimes electronics damaged from being soaked.

If you feel like you’re in over your head, you’re not alone. Many Fort Worth property owners come to the realization that they need the help of a professional to cope with the aftermath of a flood event.

SERVPRO has been helping home and business owners recover from water damage for decades. Time and time again, our team makes it, “Like it never even happened.” We work tirelessly to achieve three things: restore the property to preloss condition, prevent secondary damage (like mold growth), and do the entire job with efficiency so you get back to life as usual as soon as possible.

  • Comprehensive restoration - Typically, a property owner has to hire more than one service to manage flood damage: at least one company to do the cleaning and another to recover the damage. With SERVPRO you get both. We do a thorough cleaning, mold mitigation, salvage what we can, and repair the rest. No need to hire additional contractors. We do it all.
  • Insurance approved - We’ve build a relationship with so many insurance companies because of how many we’ve worked with over the years.

How to Choose a Water Restoration Company in Fort Worth

3/11/2021 (Permalink)

Fort Worth water damage restoration services If you find signs of water damage in your Fort Worth home or business, contact the experts at SERVPRO for professional water damage restoration.

When you first discover water damage, it’s best to act on it soon. The longer you wait to have repairs done, the more secondary damage there could be (such as rotting materials and mold growth).

But even with this urgency, you want to take some time to make sure that you partner with the right water restoration company. Those that lure you with cheap quotes are likely to be cutting corners, and this costs you more money in the long run.

SERVPRO is here to help Fort Worth citizens protect their property investments by advising them to hire trustworthy services. We’ve put together a quick guide to help you navigate the process.

5 Signs a Water Restoration Company is Reliable

Here’s an overview of what to look for when choosing a Fort Worth water damage restoration company.

1. Availability

More often than not, a reliable water damage service is on call 24/7. How well can a business complete a water damage recovery if they aren’t available? Also important is proximity to your property. A nearby business is able to respond faster and be timely with recovery daily tasks.

2. Transparency

An accurate estimate is based on a complete walkthrough of the damage. The quote should be in writing and include a cost breakdown with an expected timeline of the repairs. When a service makes a point to be detailed in their estimate and clearly communicate what you can expect, this is a sign that they can be counted on to follow through.

3. Credentials & Endorsements

Some ask friends and family for referrals before they search for service companies on their own. Also, reviews online can be useful but not all feedback is objective, so read these critically and watch for responses to customers from the business.

Ask businesses if they are insured and bonded. More specifically for water damage restoration, ask if they have ANSI/IICRC certifications as these businesses have met industry standards.

4. Professionalism

Presentation is everything. A reputable restoration company has updated and sanitary equipment, industrial-grade cleaning products, and sufficient personal protective wear. 

Prompt responses and handling your concerns efficiently show that you matter as a customer. SERVPRO assigns our clients a single point of contact so they aren’t passed around from person to person.

5. Insurance

A water restoration company that understands the insurance process makes all the difference. SERVPRO has extensive experience working with insurance companies and we work on your behalf to make the claims process go as smoothly as possible.

SERVPRO Earns Your Trust

For decades, homeowners and businesses in Fort Worth have relied on SERVPRO for dependable and timely service. When it comes to water damage restoration, we meet all of the above-outlined criteria. (See testimonials.)

You should have peace of mind when you hire a water damage restoration company. That’s why we are transparent and available with any questions or concerns you have about the process. Contact us at (817) 589-1499 any time.

SERVPRO Provides Professional Cigarette Smoke Removal in Fort Worth

2/11/2021 (Permalink)

professional cigarette smoke removal Restore and refresh your property with professional cigarette smoke removal services from our Fort Worth SERVPRO.

While not as common as it was decades ago, cigarette smoking is still a part of American life. Smokers may be “nose blind” to the odor that cigarettes leave behind, but most people are used to smoke-free air.

Whether you are prepping a house for sale or an apartment for rent in Fort Worth, you need to have the air clear of cigarette smoke so that even the most sensitive of noses won’t detect it.

With SERVPRO cigarette smoke removal, the new inhabitants will never know a smoker was ever there. We make it "Like it never even happened."

How SERVPRO Gets Rid of Stubborn Cigarette Odor

The longer smoking goes on indoors, the more it penetrates through the air ducts and fibrous materials (furniture, drywall, curtains, etc.). Sometimes it even stains materials in the room with a yellow tinge. 

Below are the core components of SERVPRO cigarette smoke removal.

  • Evaluate - We start out by doing a thorough assessment of the affected space so we can account for all the areas that have become a source of the odor.
  • Cleaning - We thoroughly clean upholstery, carpet, furniture, curtains, blinds, walls, countertops, etc. with our industrial-strength cleaners. 

Fabrics and soft-goods with stubborn stains and odors are restored in our state-of-the-art Esporta Wash System.

  • Air duct remediation - The longer a home or building has been smoked in, the more likely it is that the HVAC system will harbor cigarette smoke remnants. 

We clean out the air ducts so that you can run the air conditioner cycling the odors.

  • Air scrubbing and deodorization - As a finishing touch, we use HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers to grab airborne cigarette odors. 

We also apply industrial-grade deodorizer treatments to anything in the room that is still harboring cigarette odor.

By the time we have finished, no one would guess that a smoker was there. The work is not complete until the room and the air are neutralized and smell completely fresh.

Contact SERVPRO for Cigarette Smoke Odor Elimination in Fort Worth

Restore and refresh any property with cigarette smoke odor removal. We apply our Fort Worth fire damage restoration professional techniques to rid your spaces of cigarette smoke once and for all!

How to Remove Soot from Fabric

2/11/2021 (Permalink)

how to remove soot from fabric During a fire, soot can cover the fabrics inside your home. Contact SERVPRO in Fort Worth for fire damage restoration including fabric recovery.

Not only is fire destructive by reducing things to a pile of ash, but the soot left behind is also damaging. Soot is acidic and known to cause corrosion and discoloration.

Soot stains because it is oily. If you have an heirloom quilt, a designer suit, or a favorite dress that is peppered with soot, is it worth trying to save? Before you toss it out, try these tips.

Steps for Removing Soot from Clothing

To keep the stain from getting worse, follow these steps for how to remove soot from fabric.

  • Remove loose soot - Shake off the excess soot before it has a chance to add more to the stains. Be careful not to shake the soot onto other materials that might stain. Take it outdoors or shake it into a trash bag (or another disposable plastic item).
  • Flush out the soot - Using cold water, rinse both sides of the fabric to force the soot out. High-pressure water can be more effective with this.
  • Pretreat - Mix a solution of water and stain remover like sodium percarbonate (Oxiclean). Submerge the fabric and leave it to soak.
  • Wash - Without rinsing out the pretreatment, put the item into the washing machine by itself. Launder the item on the highest temperature setting. You may use laundry detergent and bleach for white items (or color-safe bleach as needed). Borax and washing soda are also effective at fighting stubborn stains in the washing machine cycle.
  • Observe - After the wash cycle is complete, remove the item and examine it. If the stain is still there, do not place it in the dryer as this will set the stain. Instead, use these other treatments:
    • Alcohol - dab the stain with rubbing alcohol using the sponge. Avoid rubbing the stain as this pushes the soot further in. You’ll want to extract the stain with a dabbing motion.
    • Salt - Pour salt over the stain and let it sit for several hours. The salt soaks up some of the soot.
    • Formula 409 - Douse the material with Formula 409 to dissolve the soot.
  • Wash again - After applying one of these methods, launder the item in the washing machine again.
  • Check again - Once no signs of soot or stains appear on the fabric, you may dry it in the clothes dryer.

Taking Care of your Fire Damaged Contents in Texas

Contents with Smoke Damage

Fire damages will affect both the structure of your home and your belongings, as well. Smoke and soot can ruin furniture, clothing, and keepsakes-- the very things that make a house a home.

It may be necessary to contact professional help when it comes to restoring items affected by fire damage, or water damage and mold growth, too. The expertise of such a company can help you save money in the long run, all while preserving those precious, irreplaceable heirlooms. There are several methods that can be used to clean your items:

  • Dry Cleaning. For cleaning lighter residues as well as for preparation before wet-cleaning.
  • Wet Cleaning. Effective for removing both moderate and heavy residues.
  • Spray and Wipe Cleaning. Used for items that cannot be wet-cleaned.
  • Foam Cleaning. For upholstery and other fabrics that can shrink or bleed if wet-cleaned.
  • Abrasive Cleaning. Uses agitation of any surface being cleaned.
  • Immersion Cleaning. A bath of cleaning product is used; items are dipped in and soaked.

Electronics that have been damaged by fire often present serious hazards. No device should be turned on if it could possibly have been damaged by fire. Smoke residues contain acids that corrode metal surfaces, and if they are not removed, that corrosion can cause electronic failure in that device. Taking prompt action will prevent further damages to your devices. Some of the devices you should be careful of include:

  • Computers
  • Television sets
  • DVD players
  • Cell phones
  • iPads and Tablets

When documents, such as photographs, contracts, wills, etc. are damaged by water or fire, extreme care will need to be taken to ensure the document is not completely lost. Although in some cases it may not be possible to return every document to pre-fire condition, a professional restoration company can certainly save a good deal of them and minimize additional damage. Depending on the type of document and level of damage, there are five professional methods used for document restoration:

  • Air Drying.
  • Freezer Drying
  • Dehumidifying
  • Vacuum Freeze/Vacuum Thermal Drying

When you have suffered a fire, handling the damages following that fire can be overwhelming. The SERVPRO of North Richland Hills team can help you in caring for your belongings and premises during this process.

Carbon Monoxide: A Silent Cold Weather Killer

12/20/2019 (Permalink)

Never run a vehicle or other fueling engine or motor indoors, even if garage doors are open.

You can’t see or smell carbon monoxide, but at high levels it can kill a person in minutes. Often called the silent killer, carbon monoxide (or CO) is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels, like gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, and propane burn incompletely.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, each year more than 400 Americans die from unintentional CO poisoning. It is estimated another 20,000 visit the emergency room, and more than 4,000 are hospitalized due to CO poisoning. All people and animals are at risk for CO poisoning, with some groups including unborn babies, infants, and people with chronic heart disease, anemia, or respiratory problems being more susceptible to the effects of carbon monoxide. An excess of CO, leading to CO poisoning, can result from faulty furnaces or other heating appliances, portable generators, water heaters, clothes dryers, or idling cars left running in garages. Taking some basic, precautionary steps can help eliminate the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Protect yourself by reviewing the following tips provided by the United States Fire Administration.

  • Have fuel-burning appliances, like oil and gas furnaces, gas or kerosene heaters, fireplaces, and wood stoves inspected by a trained professional every year.
  • Open the damper for proper ventilation before using a fireplace. Never use your oven or stovetop to heat your home.
  • Make sure all fuel-burning equipment is vented to the outside to avoid CO poisoning. Keep the venting for exhaust clear and unblocked.
  • If you need to warm a vehicle, remove it from the garage immediately after starting it. Never run a vehicle or other fueling engine or motor indoors, even if garage doors are open. Make sure the exhaust of a running vehicle is not blocked with snow, ice, or other materials.
  • Make sure vents for the dryer, furnace, stove, and fireplace are clear of snow and other debris.
  • Only use barbecue grills outside, away from all doors, windows, vents, and other building openings. Some grills can produce CO gas. Never use grills inside the home or the garage, even if the doors are open.
  • Use portable generators outdoors in well-ventilated areas away from all doors, windows, vents, and other building openings to prevent exhaust fumes from entering the home.

American Red Cross Disaster Responder Program

SERVPRO® Pledges Ongoing Support to the American Red Cross Disaster Responder Program

Red Cross recognizes SERVPRO for their contribution to disaster preparedness and recovery efforts

 

Haltom City, TX.  June 1, 2016 -- The American Red Cross recently recognized SERVPRO®, a cleanup and restoration company, for participation in its Disaster Responder Program1.  As a Disaster Responder Program member, SERVPRO pledges a donation to the Red Cross in advance of disasters, allowing the organization to respond quickly and effectively to nearly 66,000 disasters annually, most of which are home fires. SERVPRO is entering their third year of partnership with the Red Cross; their donations to the organization to date exceed one million dollars.

According to statistics cited by the Red Cross, seven people die in a home fire each day in the U.S. Aiming to reduce deaths and injuries caused by home fires by 25 percent by the end of 2019, the Red Cross launched a Home Fire Campaign in October of 2014. The support of SERVPRO and other Disaster Responder Program members allows the Red Cross to pursue their home fire prevention goals while they continue to provide critical services to disaster victims.

 

“One of the reasons home fires account for the majority of the disasters the Red Cross responds to annually is that the risk for home fires exists all year long,” said Jeffrey Stokes, owner of SERVPRO of North Richland Hills. “Statistics compiled by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)2 show the majority of home fires are related to unattended cooking accidents – and cooking is something most people do every day.”
