Even though this makes droughts uncommon in the area, this can also mean we experience fairly frequent water damage, storm damage, and flooding.

Blog summary: This SERVPRO blog dives into the usual causes of water damage in hotels that homeowners must watch out for.
A hotel requires constant maintenance and inspection to ensure there are no unpleasant surprises for the guests or the staff. The image and revenue of a hotel are dependent on its aesthetic and functional appeal. A minor leak left unaddressed in a hotel can damage the structure and expensive interiors, ruin guests’ possessions, affect electrical wiring that can become a fire hazard, and entail a massive repair cost that may or may not be covered by insurance. Consequently, all this means unhappy clients and damaged reputation. SERVPRO shares the common causes of water damage in hotels that hotel owners should watch out for.

Blog summary: The SERVPRO article talks in detail about the causes of water leakage in commercial buildings that can lead to serious water damage if not checked in time.
Commercial buildings tend to use larger amounts of water than residential buildings owing to the sheer volume of people who visit the premises. Water costs in general are already high in commercial spaces but can become painfully exorbitant if there are unaddressed water leaks.
Awareness of the common causes of water leaks is the first step towards preventing them. SERVPRO of Grapevine / NE Tarrant County, a commercial water damage restoration company, shares the usual suspects of water leakage in commercial buildings:
Roof leaks pose a grave structural damage risk and can lead to major water leaks that may prove expensive, if not addressed on time.
Rain collars, flashing, pipe boots, and field wraps are effective mechanisms to avoid leaks.
Water pipes are often found inside the walls of commercial constructions while other plumbing pipes are located underground.
Timely maintenance of the plumbing system can prevent these mishaps from occurring.
Minor foundation leaks can explode into a massive, sudden water issue in the guise of floods and structural damage. The reasons could be:
These waterproofing failures allow seepage from clogged drainage, broken pipes, groundwater level rise, and even water features of the above-ground landscaping.
The structural integrity of the basement will be seriously threatened by the high moisture level, as the chloride content of the concrete will cause severe corrosion problems.
Plumbing fixtures in commercial buildings, such as toilets and sinks, are extensively used and are, therefore, more likely to spring a leak.
These common problem areas can be addressed by repairing on time to avoid even costlier repairs and replacement.
Commercial kitchens and toilets struggle with improper items being rinsed down the drainage system. This results in massive amounts of waste and other debris being flushed down the drains, which often clog the systems and slow the drainage.
This eventually backs up and leads to leakages, which may warrant a professional water damage restoration.
Failure of waterproofing membranes in bathrooms and other wet areas of high-rise buildings can lead to dampness and seepage. Damp patches appear on the ceiling on the lower floor and the dripping water can lead to mold growth and structural damage.
Keeping an eye out for these tell-tale signs can prevent a lot of unnecessary damage.
Leak detection systems
The best bet against water leaks is a commercial water leak detection system, passive or active. The common systems used by commercial buildings are:
In case of water damage, commercial businesses must contact commercial cleaning service companies such as SERVPRO of Grapevine / NE Tarrant County for swift and efficient water damage restoration.

Blog Summary: SERVPRO offers four essential steps immediately after discovering commercial water damage in Keller, TX. While waiting for the arrival of commercial restoration services, follow this advice for containing the damage, filing the insurance claim, and contacting a professional cleanup service.
Commercial restoration services become necessary for many reasons, and one common occurrence is water damage. A professional building restoration service mitigates floods caused by a storm surge or excessive rain, appliance leaks, burst or leaking pipes, and roof leaks. Business owners need to know what to do in these scenarios, especially while waiting for the commercial restoration services team to arrive.
Many events could result in serious water damage, but all of them require a prompt commercial cleaning service to set the property right again.
When a property owner discovers water damage, Step One is always to find the source. If the problem is still active, such as a burst pipe or leak, shut down the water source. The company may need to call a professional plumber to control the water or close the water main before continuing.
Water leakage can happen anywhere in a commercial or residential building for various reasons. If the source is not apparent, a professional service may need to help with a diagnostic search through the area.
If a leaking or a burst pipe is the issue, closing the water source will prevent further issues. If not, Step Two is finding other possible sources of the water damage. Important checks include walls and the roof, where pipes pass through, and various openings could present challenges.
Enlisting a water damage cleanup and restoration professional is crucial when a commercial building has suffered water damage. It can be dangerous with floors weakened by standing or running water, and collapse could result in possible injuries. There are also risks with fiberglass insulation, asbestos, and mold spores.
Step Three is for the business owner to notify their insurance company about water damage and start a claim. Some commercial property policies may not cover water damage, so it is crucial to ask for details about the building’s policy coverage. Documenting the damage with photographs is also essential.
Step Four is to find reputable commercial restoration services in the area, like SERVPRO. Sufficient expertise in water removal and water cleanup is essential.
Commercial water restoration companies like SERVPRO have years of experience to cover cleanup, water removal, drying out processes, and tear-out aspects of commercial restoration services in Keller, Texas. They safely complete dry out and removal tasks, minimizing damage and the risk of exposure. The commercial restoration service also offers emergency service and mold remediation as one of the industry’s most reliable fire restoration companies.
SERVPRO of Grapevine is one of the most trusted water damage restoration and mold remediation companies in the area. The professional team is ready to assist with any water damage, from air duct cleaning service to mold removal, commercial water damage, and fire damage restoration service.
Contact SERVPRO for reliable assistance at (817) 595-2506. Their professionals are happy to assist with more information about commercial water damage restoration, flood cleanup, and mold removal in Southlake, TX. They work from 1670 Keller Pkwy. Ste 209, Keller, TX, 76248.
Water is the single most long-term destructive substance in the indoor environment. Water may dissolve or weaken building materials, damage floors and ceilings, and cause microbial growth if water damage restoration is not implemented quickly and professionally.
When water from a leak, flood, storm, or activated fire sprinklers is present at your place of business, step one is to remove the water immediately. The faster the water is extracted the less damage to the building structure and contents. In many situations, simply removing most of the water is not enough. Water trapped in carpet pad, under the flooring and behind the walls can cause permanent damage if not properly dried out in a timely manner.
Once the majority of water is removed, dehumidifiers and air movers will be placed by technicians in necessary areas of the building to finish the dry out process. Combining water removal, with dehumidification and air circulation aids in the prevention of microbial growth from expanding and growing.
A SERVPRO manager will walk the property with the owner or manager and adjuster explaining the water damage restoration process and answering any questions they may have about removal of property, items and demo.
At SERVPRO of Grapevine and N.E. Tarrant County we are here for your water and fire needs 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Call us at 817-595-2506

Blog Summary: SERVPRO of Grapevine / NE Tarrant Co. explains what commercial cleaning services are and the importance of hiring a commercial cleaner for your business
What Are Commercial Cleaning Services?
Whether you own a restaurant, a boutique, an office space, or a supermarket, your commercial property must be regularly cleaned to maximize its function and appearance. Commercial cleaning services range from general cleaning to more specialized services such as mold removal, fire and water cleanup, and air duct cleaning. Below is a more detailed description of SERVPRO’s services.
Water damage could be the result of a flood, water from a sink that has leaked, a pipe that has burst, or a faulty air conditioner.
Buildings, offices, and homes can sustain microbial growth of mold if excess water and humidity are left untreated. Mold can spread and become a health hazard.
Fire damage carries with it the trauma of fire destruction, debris, air quality concerns, and potential health risks to those exposed. Water damage is often a secondary issue when there has been a fire. Fire damage services may include removal of debris, cleaning the fire-damaged areas of an office or home, purifying and making the air fresh and safe to breathe, and remediating any water damage.
In the event of fire, water, or storm damage, the immediate concern is to protect the building, home, or office from further damage and to secure the structure for restoration to occur. Services include but are not limited to drywall, electrical, painting, roofing, tile, and carpet repair.
How Commercial Cleaning Services Benefit Your Business:
To operate at peak productivity, businesses need to provide a clean environment for their team and clientele. Specialty cleaning services include air ducts and HVAC, biohazard and sewage, trauma and crime scene, carpet and upholstery, drapes and blinds, ceilings, walls and hardwood floors, odor removal, and deodorization, and vandalism clean-up.

Biohazards, or biological and chemical contaminants, can pose serious dangers to your health and well-being. Not only do they create unhealthy and dangerous environments, but they put people at risk, which is why it’s integral to deal with biohazards properly in the event that you find one on your commercial property. Biohazards include, but are not limited to, the following.
As you can see, many of these scenarios are glaringly hazardous to general health and safety, and you must be sure to call professionals to deal with the biohazard right away instead of attempting to manage it on your own. The sensitive nature of biohazards means that reverting to do-it-yourself cleanup may pose dire consequences, so it’s best to contact experts like SERVPRO of Grapevine/NE Tarrant County instead.
Common biohazard scenarios include sewage backups, bloodborne pathogens, and illegal drug manufacturing labs/meth labs, which all pose emergencies that require immediate responses.

Sure, you could tell us where the breaker box is in your office, just incase Debbie from accounting trips a breaker by microwaving her left over salmon and Brussel sprouts (ew, thanks Debbie) but do you know where your water shut off is?

Spring is just around the corner – and it seems to be coming sooner rather than later, with temperatures reaching into the 60s by late next week (I definitely plan on giving my car a good deep clean this weekend).

Last week was a busy week for us when it came to commercial properties flooding due to the storms that hit the metroplex on Sunday the 20th, and this week will likely be just as busy! We’ve got an 80% chance of rain on Tuesday, and then a 90% chance of rain on Thursday! Of course, the question still stands: is your commercial space prepared for a weather disaster? What about a burst pipe?
If the answer is no, then you definitely need to consider setting up an appointment for an ERP, or Emergency Response Program, with us. ERPs are really cool, and I’m just not saying that – I promise! ERPs can prepare your business for whatever may happen, whether it’s a burst pipe or a roof leak.

If something happens, give us a call, and we’ll be able to pull that ERP to make the drying process go even faster than normal! Which will save you time and it’ll save you money.
So, give us a call at 817.595.2506 to start your ERP today!
That was some serious weather we had last night! Tornadoes tracked miles worth of damage in Dallas, and we had some serious quarter sized hailstorms.

Those who run their own businesses have a TON on their plate. They’ve got pay roll to worry about, making deadlines, making quarterly numbers – the list goes on. The last thing they need on their plate is a disaster to happen, most times, businesses are woefully underprepared for a disaster to their commercial businesses. Do you have a contingency plan just in case a pipe bursts or a roof caves in due to a thunderstorm?
If not, you may want to consider our Emergency Ready Program, or ERP. With an ERP we can identify problem areas, where your water shut off is, and even create a game plan for our team just incase you happen to have a water or fire damage in the future. An ERP can save your company time and money, so give us a call today to schedule one at 817.595.2506!
Water damage is one of the more devastating things that can happen to your business, short of a fire. Water losses can often close your office which in turn can mean lost revenue and productivity time.
Unfortunately, while there’s not much you can do about storm related water damage, it’s easy to curb any unexpected damage to your business by doing regular inspections of your commercial space. Below are some places to check for water damage on a routine basis.
Rain seeping in through damaged roofs can go unseen and often cause water damage that goes left unnoticed for months and in turn causes mold growth that can cause health problems to you and your staff. Have a roof routinely inspected by a professional to prevent leaks, especially before our rainy spring season.
Your pipes can cause a ton of headaches. If you’ve got a burst pipe it can cause hundreds to thousands of gallons of water to flood your office space. If you have a slow leak, it could cause mold. It’s a good idea to have a plumber come out and inspect your pipes.
Did you know that your sprinkler system can leak? It can! We’ve had a few jobs where a sprinkler had made a lot of damage in commercial buildings. Do regular checks to make sure your system isn’t faulty or broken. It can also save lives during a fire.
If you’ve had any water damage to a commercial property, give SERVPRO of Grapevine/NE Tarrant County a call today at 817.595.2506!
When I worked back in retail, we had an employee only bathroom. However, we all know that with young children if they tell you they need to go now, they need to go now. We usually let small kids use our bathroom if they had a guardian or parent accompany them. One of my coworkers, a sweet older lady who didn’t have a bad bone in her body, bless her heart, let a child go back without a parent. What ensued next has been dubbed the diaper incident by those of us who were there to witness it. The poor thing, it seemed, had an accident on his way to the bathroom and was too embarrassed to tell anyone about it. So, he did his business (number 2) and tried to flush the diaper he was wearing.
Now, if you know anything about diapers and indoor plumbing, you should know they never should be combined. The combination in our pipes lead to a burst pipe, poop ‘splosion catastrophe. And it was a day or two before our plumber could get there. We didn’t know where the water shut off was, and it would have been really nice to know that information.
If you were to have a diaper incident in your place of business, whether it’s an office, retail or warehouse, do you know where your water shut off is? What about your employees? If you’re out of town, do they know where it is? That’s where we here at SERVPRO of Grapevine/NE Tarrant County comes in! We have a special program called an Emergency Ready Profile, or ERP. We can make a plan of action for any event and any situation whether it’s water, fire, or storm damage. The ERP will help you minimize the damage to your commercial space and give us important information in the case of an emergency. The catch? There is none! This is a completely free service to anyone and everyone!
To get started on an ERP give us a call today to schedule an appointment with one of our Business Development Representatives at 817.595.2506!
This Grapevine church experienced flooding when there was a leak coming from the baptism room and going out into the sanctuary completely saturating the sanctuary in standing water. When we arrived on scene, we extracted all the water and placed the air movers we had for emergency services. We then returned the following day with even more air movers (close to 50!). We also placed dehumidifiers to the area. We returned each day to the church to make sure that everything was drying according to plan and fortunately, we were able to get the church back to normal and ready for worship in no time at all!

The rain in Texas has been non-stop for a while, and buildings are not able to handle the amount of water we have been getting. This office supply store has water coming in from multiple areas; it is even soaking up through the floor! Due to the puddles, some areas of the store even needed to be closed off so that customers wouldn’t slip. Our team got on site quickly and worked to control the water while the store called in a plumber and a foundation expert to address the issues causing the leaks. We know how important it is for your store to be able to operate normally, so we immediately got to work extracting water and setting up air movers to keep the space dry. If your commercial space suffers from water damage, call us right away at 817-595-2506.
When disaster strikes, our team is always ready to go. This set of businesses was flooded when a pipe burst in one of them. Since the owners of the business were out of town, nobody noticed the broken pipe. Water flowed all over the floor and even seeped under the walls to affect multiple buildings. There was standing water in 6 suites! SERVPRO® of Grapevine/NE Tarrant County knows how important it is to get your business back to normal as quickly as possible, so we called in a huge crew and got to work right away. We needed a total of 236 air movers, 13 dehumidifiers, 2 power distribution boxes, and 1 generator to make sure every inch of the buildings got dried out!
There is no job too big for us, so if you have a large loss in your business call us today at 817-595-2506.
We bet you didn’t know that we are a Large Loss Response Team, so what does that mean exactly? It means that it doesn’t matter the size of the loss we are always ready to handle it.

We have more equipment, higher certifications, and more experience with a greater eye for detail than your standard commercial loss response team.

We know how devastating a storm can be, and we approach every job with the same care and compassion whether it’s a small house or a 20,000 square foot warehouse.
If you’ve recently been affected by the recent rains, we can help. Give SERVPRO of Grapevine/NE Tarrant County a call 817.595.2506 and know that we are always “Here to Help.”
Winter is coming! And no, we don’t mean the white walkers. It’s not even November yet and the Rockies (including Denver) and parts of Texas have already seen snow, and that could be some foresight into the coming winter months. The Farmer’s Almanac is calling for a teeth-shatteringly cold winter, and El Nino is coming with forecasters already predicting snow for North Texas.
So, with that in mind, it’s important to prep your commercial building for the coming winter this fall.
If you haven’t yet, inspect your roof for damage from the spring and summer months. Although we had a fairly quiet spring and summer when it came to hail and tornadoes we still did have some strong storms with strong winds. If you haven’t detected any water damage from the recent rains, it’s still a good idea to go ahead and make sure there aren’t any unseen holes were water could have gotten in with you unaware.
Check your gutters for any blockages from leaves that have fallen during the fall months. Clean them out to make sure that nothing can overflow and potentially damage your building.
Inspect the insulation of your building, and make sure there is nothing missing, damaged, or has unexpected water and mold damage. Replace and damaged or missing insulation and call SERVPRO of Grapevine/NE Tarrant County to help you deal with any mold.
Inspect your pipes in the early fall before the first freezes, a burst pipe could be devastating for your business. If you do have a burst pipe, give us a call!
If you do have water damage issues this winter, give us at 817.595.2506! We are always here to help!
Commercial Property Water Loss and Extraction
Water is the single most long-term destructive substance in the indoor environment. It can dissolve or weaken building materials, damage floors and ceilings, and can also cause microbial growth if you don’t fix water damage quickly and professionally.
The faster the water is extracted the less damage to the building structure and contents.
The first thing to do if you are dealing with water damage at your place of business is to remove the water immediately. The faster the water is extracted the less damage to the building structure and contents. In situations, this is not enough. Standing water from carpet, flooring and walls can cause permanent damage if not taken care of in a timely manner
Extracting water in commercial buildings or properties, is a very important part of any large water loss. Fire sprinklers, used to stop fire from spreading, can leave you with wet and soggy office spaces.
Water extraction is used to assist in the prevention of microbial growth from expanding and growing. Extraction of water is also needed to keep floors from buckling. The dehumidifiers and air movers will be placed by the technicians in the necessary areas of the building.
A SERVPRO manager will walk the property with the owner/manager and adjuster explaining the process and to answer any questions they may have about removal of property, items and demo.

We Identify Odors
Hotels and many commercial buildings do not always have the ability to open windows and let in clean fresh air. This is one reason SERVPRO of Grapevine/NE Tarrant County has special deodorization techniques. We have a highly trained staff that knows how to identify and eliminate stubborn odors.
We Handle Odors
The techniques we use to handle odors are specifically designed to restore your rooms to a desirable state. Unwanted smells can be trapped in upholstery, carpets, draperies and even hard surfaces. Using fragrance or air fresheners is not the answer to an odor problem. There have been state of the art advances in proprietary cleaning that has changed the way deodorization works.
The professionals here at SERVPRO of Grapevine/NE Tarrant County are ready to take your hotel to the next level of clean. We would be honored to work with you to even schedule routine cleanings to prevent offensive odors from becoming excessive in any room.
