Cooking fire in condominium near Saginaw, TX

12/31/2018 (Permalink)

A cooking fire in this kitchen shows the black soot left behind in Saginaw, TX.  As you can see in this before picture the microwave melted and left behind a mess to clean up. SERVPRO of Northwest Fort Worth was called immediately!  Our highly trained technicians assessed the damage to begin cleaning.  Smoke and soot affected the kitchen as well as the air ducts, walls, ceiling, and floors.  After testing the walls, ceiling, air ducts for smoke and soot, cleaning was completed as well as, removal of microwave and cabinets.  Our equipment was set up to help deodorize and remove the offensive odor left behind.  When the job was complete the customer was very satisfied!

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Northwest Fort Worth will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

Fire Extinguisher tips for Homeowners

11/5/2018 (Permalink)

Most people pass by fire extinguishers as you walk  the hallways at work or school.  The question is do you know how to use a fire extinguisher?  According to FEMA, the majority of Americans don't know how to use an extinguisher, even if they have one at home.  Fires double in size every 60 seconds, so you don't want to be wasting time reading an instruction manual in an emergency situation.  

Three questions to ask yourself before attempting to put a fire out with an extinguisher:

  1. Are you taller than the fire?
  2. Do you have the right fire extinguisher for the type of fire?
  3. Is the fire extinguisher pressurized?

If you answered yes to all three questions, then you are ready to put out the fire with the extinguisher.  Position yourself with your back to an unobstructed exit so you can get out quickly if necessary.  Safety comes first! 

The discharge range for extinguishers can run from 6-20 feet.  You want to be far enough away to not be in danger of being burned, and close enough that the discharge will be effective.  

When dealing with a fire extinguisher just remember the acronym PASS.

  • Pull the pin
  • Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire
  • Squeeze the trigger
  • Sweep from side to side

The next step is to slowly back away even if the fire appears to be extinguished, don't turn your back on it.  There could be hidden fires or unseen hot spots that can ignite into a large flame at any moment.  If you have any doubt about your ability to fight a fire.... EVACUATE IMMEDIATELY!

If you have never used a fire extinguisher before check with your local emergency services/community organizations who offer classes.  It is highly recommended that you do so.  Now you know the basics to pass along to others.   

City of Saginaw, Texas receives new member from the State Farm Arson Dog Program

7/9/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage City of Saginaw, Texas receives new member from the State Farm Arson Dog Program Sheldon, an arson detection dog, is the newest member of the Saginaw, TX fire department.

Meet Sheldon. He is the newest member of the Saginaw Fire Department from the State Farm Arson Dog Program. Sheldon is a 2 year old Goldenlab who has completed a 5 week, 200 hour canine-accelerant detection course. He is the 8th active arson dog in Texas and in his first three weeks already assisted on two jobs. One of the best parts about the State Farm Program, only shelter dogs or dogs dismissed from other service programs are used. Sheldon was in another program but couldn't resist a pork chop and therefore failed. 

According to the U.S. Fire Administration, an estimated 16,800 fires are intentionally set in U.S. residential buildings every year, resulting in an estimated 280 deaths, 775 injuries and $593 million in property damage.

Fire Damage Home Inventory App | Prepare Now for Disaster Recovery | Haslet | Fort Worth | Saginaw SMART Phone apps make home inventory process simple

Disasters happen every day.  Our team at SERVPRO of Northwest Fort Worth has had the opportunity to help many people, often on the worst day of their lives after a fire strikes their home.  We always start with the most immediate areas of concern first: safety of all the family members, security for the property, and then mitigating damage as much as possible.  Depending on the situation, we can often dry out the existing structure without a huge reconstruction project.  It all depends on what happened, how long any water remained standing and how long before we were called into action.   During the mitigation process, we are often able to restore personal belongings as well.  Many times, the simple process of drying everything out and cleaning off any residue will restore items to a usable condition.  However, there are often considerable amounts of personal goods that are beyond repair and must simply be discarded and replaced.   We can assist homeowners with this process by working with them and their insurance agent to define the damage and outline a reimbursement.  This process is simplified when a homeowner has an inventory of their personal property.  In an ideal situation, there will be photographs, descriptions, and proofs of purchase for the items.  The more information you have, the better, and there are many automation tools available today to assist. The key to this process is taking an inventory BEFORE disaster strikes.  You might check with your agent to determine what they recommend if they have any tools you can use.  We did identify 5 companies that offer such tools.  We included their links below, and some relevant information about reviews, recent updates, etc.  We recommend trying out a few different apps, and try to enter information on one room in your home and see how it goes.  Mobile apps will often have a website companion site that can be useful in managing and updating information.  Spending some time now can help you save time later.  Instead of having to come up with an inventory after you’ve lost everything and aren’t thinking straight, you’ll have a detailed report to hand over to the agent and adjuster.  This will allow you to focus on the thing that matters to you most - your family.  We’ll worry about the structure, and do our very best to make it “Like it never even happened.”

Holiday Decorating Safety Tips for Residents of Fort Worth, TX

12/13/2017 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Holiday Decorating Safety Tips for Residents of Fort Worth, TX For many people in the Northwest Fort Worth area, decorating the Christmas tree is a favorite part of the holiday.

SERVPRO of Northwest Fort Worth wishes you a safe and happy holiday season!

Every year residents and business owners in Haslet and Saginaw decorate their homes and businesses for the holidays. Seasonal decorations enhance the festive mood of the holidays, but can also be safety hazards. Reduce the risk of fire damage in your home or business by following these simple safety tips.

Decorative Lights

Choose decorative lights that are properly labeled and have been inspected by an independent testing laboratory. Some lights are designed for indoor use only or outdoor use only, so place the lights according to the labeling. Inspect light strands before placing them. Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than the number of light strings recommended by the manufacturer. Plug your decorative light strands into a surge protector. Remember to turn off outside decorative lights and Christmas tree lights before leaving or going to bed.

Candles

Candles are widely used throughout the holidays, and statistics show that more than half of all candle fires start because the candles were too close to flammable objects. Consider using flameless candles in your decorating. Keep traditional candles at least 12 inches from any flammable materials, and remember to extinguish candles when leaving a room or going to bed. Use sturdy candle holders that are not likely to tip over. Place candles on clear, uncluttered surfaces.

Christmas Trees

The majority Christmas tree related fires are caused by electrical problems. If you have an artificial tree, be sure it is fire retardant. If you prefer a cut tree, pick a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched. Make sure that the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, such as fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents, or lamps. Do not place your Christmas tree in front of an exit. Make sure the tree has plenty of water every day. Dried-out trees can be a fire hazard and should not be left in the home or garage, or stored leaning against the exterior of your home. After the holidays, properly dispose of your cut tree right away.

Enjoy the holiday season!

Safety Tips for Deep Frying a Turkey - Fort Worth, TX | Fire Damage Restoration Experts - Haslet, TX | Fire Prevention Tips - Saginaw

Fire Damage Safety Tips for Deep Frying a Turkey - Fort Worth, TX | Fire Damage Restoration Experts - Haslet, TX | Fire Prevention Tips - Saginaw Deep Frying a Turkey in Fort Worth, TX

Nothing says Thanksgiving in Texas like deep frying a turkey!  As a fire damage restoration specialist, it would likely make the most sense to encourage you to fry the bird up right in your garage, or why not the kitchen?  You're careful, right?  There's no way your curious cat won't try to tip over the boiling oil and spread it all through the kitchen....

While we are experts at cleaning up after such a disaster, we would rather spend Thanksgiving with our families, too, so we thought we'd share a few tips we found online.  However, since you've taken the time to read this far, why not store our number in your phone in case you need it: 817.232.3333.  Remember, you would call us AFTER the fire is out.  If you see flames, call 911 FIRST!  Once the fire department says it's safe to begin cleaning up, then call us and we'll assess the situation, and make a plan.  Here's what you can do to hopefully avoid the situation altogether:

Turkey Frying Tips from the Fire Restoration Experts

  1. Don't Setup Near the House - In fact, make sure you're about 10 feet away from any structure, keep animals and kids far away, and don't leave it unattended.  If you need a BRB, phone a friend, and have them stand watch.
  2. Make sure the turkey is thawed and dry.  If there's excess water, then it can cause the oil to bubble vigorously and overflow.  It could then spill on the burner and cause a fire.
  3. Use a flat area.  The oil in the pot must be even and steady at all times to be safe.  Keep it on a flat, level surface and be careful with the amount of oil you use.
  4. Temperature monitoring is key.  Be cautious as the lid and handle can be hot and cause burns.  Make sure you have a way to keep track of the oil's temp as many fryers don't have their own thermostats.
  5. Be Prepared.  Just in case...   Have a fire extinguisher available (multipurpose, dry-powder) handy just in case the oil catches.

It's hard to be ready for everything that can go wrong, but if you take a few extra minutes to plan, then you can be enjoying some very tasty turkey while watching the Cowboys win on Thursday!  

If you do have any trouble that gets out of hand, call 911 first! Then call us...  our number is answered 24/7/365 and we'll head your way as soon as we can.  In the meantime, be safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

Grease Fire Tips for Fort Worth, TX Restaurants and Cooks | Haslet and Saginaw Fire Restoration Experts

Fire Damage Grease Fire Tips for Fort Worth, TX Restaurants and Cooks | Haslet and Saginaw Fire Restoration Experts Commercial Grease Fire

I'm sure you've heard this by now, but grease fires are VERY different from other types of fires.  Whether you're at home, or working in a commercial restaurant or helping to make burritos at church on Sunday, knowing the basics can help you in a crisis! 

Grease Fire - Action Plan

When grease does catch, here are some of the things you CAN do to help:

  • Put the lid on the pan to choke out the fire.  Fire needs oxygen, and if you can eliminate its source, it will burn out.
  • Use baking soda to smother the fire.  Flour and other items will NOT work.
  • Use a Class B dry chemical fire extinguisher  A commercial kitchen should have these handy, and you can get one for your home from Amazon from the link above.
  • Call 911

Grease Fire  - Don't

  • Don't use water to attempt to extinguish the flames.  It will simply spread the fire, and won't help.
  • Don't attempt to move it.  The grease could splash, and you might spread the fire, or burn yourself in the process.
  • Use anything other than a Class B dry chemical fire extinguisher or baking soda.  Other solutions will NOT help!

One the fire is out, assess the situation.  Depending on the severity, it may be prudent to call us at SERVPRO to check it out.  We have IICRC training to understand fire damage, and we know the best ways to mitigate it.  Put our number in your phone today so you have it handy, 817 232 3333.   When disaster strikes, get somewhere safe, call 911 first, and then call SERVPRO!  

Home Inventory App for Disaster Recovery Preparedness - Fort Worth - Haslet - Saginaw

12/30/2016 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Home Inventory App for Disaster Recovery Preparedness - Fort Worth - Haslet - Saginaw Know Your Stuff App Screen Shot

Many disaster preparedness checklists include the step of making a home inventory.  This seems like a daunting task to document the items in your home, but as you start, it's clear that taking the time to do this would be valuable.  There are a number of tools available on the market, and one in particular seemed worthy of a review.  Today I tried out "Know Your Stuff" from the Insurance Information Institute.  

I have an iPhone 7 Plus, and am running the latest iteration of the operating system, iOS 10.2.  The app name is "Know Your Stuff" and was initially released November 19, 2015, and was last updated December 9, 2016, version 2.1.3.  It was easy to establish a new account, and I was able to access my information on the app, or via a web browser on my desktop.  

Home Inventory App - The Good 

The app seems to have most of the elements you'd want to have in a home inventory tool.  It allows you to take a picture of the item in question, add the make, model, serial numbers, description, notes, and more for every item.  You could also easily group things together like "pots and pans" and just reference the brand name of the set.  

The app allows you to store information for multiple homes, and create multiple rooms within each home so that it's very organized as to where everything is.  

Home Inventory App - The Bad

The biggest downside I found was that it would not allow me to add pictures directly from the app.  As with other iOS apps, it includes the feature to "take a photo" or "Choose from Photo Library."  I tried about a dozen times, and it never allowed me to "take a photo." The app always crashed at this point, and anything I was working on was lost.  However, if I took the picture first, then went into the app, and picked "choose from Photo Library" then it worked fine. It seemed to upload the picture at full resolution as each photo takes a while to upload.  This is an area where I think the developers could get some input from underwriters and have a better understanding of what clarity of photo is valuable in assessing a claim.  I'm guessing that having a 5MB photo of a $300 computer printer isn't really necessary.

Home Inventory App - Considerations

As you think about which app to use, the biggest thing to worry about is the time you invest in taking the inventory, and will the information be accessible when you need it.  I entered a couple of items, and created a report and it was a nice, robust, detailed list of items.  I could envision taking a home inventory with a couple hundred entries and saving the spreadsheet myself in Dropbox, iCloud or some other secure cloud storage.  This would keep the inventory safe should a disaster strike.  

The other thing to consider is the app developer and their commitment to updating it.  In this instance, the Insurance Information Institute has been around for nearly 60 years and includes a huge list of participants.  I would expect that they're going to continue to support and enhance this tool so that it will be around for many years.  The photos from the report I downloaded were saved on Amazon's cloud servers, and I would believe that these will be safe and secure for the foreseeable future. 

What's the bottom line?  I'd give this app a B for now.  It seems to have most of the features I'd want to have, but needs to be able to take pictures while I'm adding items.  If you find another inventory app worthy of review, please let us know and we'll check it out!  

 

Fire Damage Restoration - Prevention Tips for Fort Worth, Haslet and Saginaw

Fire Damage Fire Damage Restoration - Prevention Tips for Fort Worth, Haslet and Saginaw Fire Extinguishers Ready for Sale - Fire Damage Prevention

One of our specialties is helping people recover from a fire in their home.  This is an extremely difficult time as people have often lost numerous personal belongings.  Their home may be compromised, and they might have to leave for a while during the fire damage restoration process.  

As you think about fire prevention in your home, remember that the most important thing is to get yourself and loved ones to safety.  Your home and belongings can be replaced, but you can't!  

Key Fire Preparedness Tip

We recommend getting a fire extinguisher for the home.  As you consider extinguishers, pay special note as to how they're labelled: A, B, or C.  Each type corresponds to a different type of fire:

  • A: Trash, Wood, Paper
  • B: Liquids, Grease
  • C: Electrical Equipment

Many extinguishers today cover all three types, but it's important to note and understand.  Some extinguishers are refillable, and others are not.  They will be clearly labeled, so keep this in mind as you shop.  It might be worthwhile to get more than one as the National Fire Protection Association recommends you have one for each floor.

Using an extinguisher isn't difficult, but dealing with fire is dangerous, so only attempt this once other family members have been evacuated.  Someone should still plan to call 911 even if you plan to use the fire extinguisher so that a professional can ensure the fire has been completely put out.

Fire Damage Restoration Process

Once the fire has been extinguished, it's time to give us a call.  We have many unique pieces of equipment we can use when cleaning up after a fire.  Even if it's relatively small, there could be water that needs to be removed and dried.  Smoke can leave behind odors, and we have a few options we can use to remove the smell of smoke from your home.  You'd be amazed at how successful we can be at removing the damaged sections and helping you get back to normal.

We recommend putting our number in your phone now so you have it in case of emergency: 817.232.3333.  We're your fire damage restoration experts in Northwest Fort Worth.

The THIRD thing to do when you have a fire in your home

4/23/2015 (Permalink)

What is the the first thing to do when you have a fire in your home?  GET OUT!  Get your family to a safe location away from the fire, and take care of step two: Call 911.  These are obviously the first two steps to take when there's a fire in your home.

Have you put much thought into what you should do third?  Who do you call after the fire department leaves?  That's where SERVPRO comes in!  

One of our specialties is dealing with properties that have had a fire.  We can assess the damage, and make a plan to get you back in your home.  

The first thing we'll do is to make sure the property is secure.  If the fire department had to open up any windows or doors to gain access, then we'll board these up, and do it according to the city or county ordinances.  Using an expert like SERVPRO will help you avoid paying any fines that might be assessed by doing something wrong in the aftermath of a fire.

We spoke to Haslet Fire Chief, Kirt Mays, and he agreed that there are many hidden dangers after a fire, and it's important to have an expert on hand to help assess the situation.  There could have been dangerous fumes released in the course of the fire, or there may be problems in the structure of the home that need to be fixed prior to anyone trying to move things out of the home or begin repairs.

The next step is to work with your insurance company and outline a plan to begin clean up and make repairs.  SERVPRO can handle the cleanup operation, and even bring in contractors to make repairs.  We'll help to get you back in your home, like it never even happened.

Why not take a minute right now, and put our number in your cell phone, 817.232.3333.  We're available 24/7, and while you may never need to call us, you'll have it at your fingertips if you do.
