12/7/2018 (Permalink)

Has a water pipe broken or an appliance water supply line failed? Has surface water invaded your home or office? Has the roof leaked? SERVPRO of McKinney is equipped to handle water damage in your home or office regardless of the cause.

Upon arrival to your home or office, our technicians will:

  1. Inspect the damage areas and determine the extent of the water damage.
  2. Advise you of the extent of the damage and our recommended restoration process.
  3. Begin extracting the water from your home or office.
  4. Place equipment specifically designed to dry the structure, such as dehumidifiers and air movers.

With the use of moisture detection equipment, our technicians will monitor the drying progress daily to ensure progress is being made. If needed, our technicians might add equipment, set up temporary containment or find it necessary to remove some structural materials, such as drywall or baseboards, to improve the drying process.

We will keep you informed throughout the drying process and will work with your insurance company.        

The History of SERVPRO

12/5/2018 (Permalink)

In 1967 Ted and Doris Isaacson started SERVPRO as a painting business located in Sacramento, California. But with a background in the cleaning and restoration, Ted and Doris soon transformed the company into a franchisor of cleanup and restoration specialists. Their business grew and they soon began  selling franchises. In 1979, SERVPRO acquired the Bristol-Myers Domesticare Division and its 175 Franchises.

In a strategic move to place itself within 600 miles of 50% of the U.S. population, SERVPRO relocated the corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, Tennessee, in 1988. At the time of the relocation, the SERVPRO system consisted of 647 Franchises.

In 2005, SERVPRO moved to a 140,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Gallatin to provide more room for expansion.

SERVPRO continues to grow and now has more than 1,700 Franchises operating in the United States and Canada. There will always be a need for experienced, trained and professional cleanup and restoration experts. With a proud history, a successful present and a bright future, SERVPRO will press on toward becoming the premier cleaning and restoration company.

Cleaning the Air in Your Home or Office

11/15/2018 (Permalink)

Following a fire or water loss in your home or office, there could lingering odors in the air. The technicians at SERVPRO of McKinney may utilize deodorizers as odor treatments; but if something more powerful is needed, we have specialty deodorization equipment to eliminate the odors.

Ultra Low Volume (ULV) Foggers will atomize liquid deodorizing agents, producing a fine mist that easily penetrates sites where odor-causing residues accumulate. The ULV Fogger can also be used to apply fungicides and disinfectants. If needed, the ULV Fogger can also be used to inject the fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other difficult-to-access areas.

Thermal Foggers dispense solvent-based products in large volume, dense fogs suitable for confined areas. The fog consists of tiny particles of deodorant solution that pair with and neutralize odor-causing particles.  

The Two Phases of Water Mitigation

11/14/2018 (Permalink)

Following water damage to your home or office, the water mitigation process is done in two phases. After inspecting your property to determine the extent of the water damage, and with your written permission, the technicians at SERVPRO of McKinney will begin Phase 1, which is to extract as much excess water as possible from the affected areas. This might also include removing carpet pad.

Phase 2, the drying phase, will then begin by strategically placing drying equipment, such as air movers and dehumidifiers. We also have specialty drying equipment to use on wood floors. If moisture is trapped behind wet baseboards or drywall, we will remove these items so that your property can be completely dried out. Throughout the drying phase, SERVPRO of McKinney technicians will use moisture detection devices to determine the amount and extent of moisture in the structure, with a goal for your property to be thoroughly dried as quickly as possible.
