Water Damage Trapped water? Let us help remove it! This picture is the wall cavity in the bomb shelter that was full of water/ sludge.

Customer called and stated that she had water trapped in between a wall cavity inside her bomb shelter (yes a bomb shelter!) and she needed professional help. SERVPRO North Arlington was onsite within 30 minutes to help extract the water that way her plumber could cut out walls and find where the water was coming from. Our customer was very pleased with our promptness and ability to assist her in situation that she had no idea how to fix.

Arlington Smoke and Soot Cleanup

Fire Damage Arlington Smoke and Soot Cleanup Smoke and Soot Damage Can Cause a Pervasive Odor in Your Arlington Home

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 North Arlington 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. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Being Mindful of Our Water Usage

7/19/2017 (Permalink)

With the summer time here and the heat increasing daily let's remember to conserve our water usage.

Did you know that 50% of water used outdoors is wasted from inefficient watering methods.

The City of Arlington has teamed up with an irrigation company and is offering 100 free irrigation system checkups to Arlington homeowners.

Registration: http://www.arlington-tx.gov/water/water-conservation/free-sprinkler-system-check-up/

Watering outdoors is not allowed between 10am and 6pm.

Water Conservation Tips for inside the home:

Practice Water Saving Techniques:

  • Scrape food from plates instead of rinsing.
  • Operate automatic dish washers only when full.
  • Don't use running water to thaw meat, defrost food in the refrigerator.
  • Wash vegetables and fruits in a bowl, don't let water run.
  • Capture tap water while waiting for hot water.
  • DO NOT IGNORE WATER APPLIANCE LEAKS

Tropical Cindy is on it's way!

Are you ready for STORM?

With tropical storms and hurricanes starting to show face it is very important that we are prepared and educated on how to keep safe. Though we will not be affected here locally in the DFW area it is still very important that we are informed what is happening in every storm situation.

First and foremost keeping yourself informed with the type of storm that is being projected is very important. So let’s see what they are saying about Tropical Storm Cindy.

Tropical Storm Cindy continues to track through the northwest Gulf of Mexico, bringing potentially life-threatening flooding concerns to parts of the Gulf Coast and South through late this week. Gusty winds, rip currents and isolated tornadoes are also expected. Moisture and energy from Cindy will also spread north and east ahead of a cold front Thursday-Friday, which will result in heavy rain and possible flooding from the South to as far north as the Ohio Valley. A tropical storm warning has been issued from San Luis Pass, Texas, to the mouth of the Mississippi River, which means tropical storm conditions are expected within 36 hours. This warning area includes Houston, Galveston, Texas, Lake Charles, Louisiana, and Lafayette, Louisiana.

Tropical storm conditions are ongoing in the warning area and will spread westward within the warning area through early Thursday. Cindy is expected to move northwestward and approach the coasts of southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas late Wednesday into Wednesday night, before moving inland near the Texas/Louisiana border Thursday.

SERVPRO of North Arlington is prepared to assist in this storm situation! Stay safe.

Hail Damage? Do not wait until tomorrow.

4/26/2017 (Permalink)

What do you do when you have checked the weather, it states no rain in the forecast and then you wake up to pouring rain, lightning strikes, and hail? This was our issue this morning.


So I checked my phone last night there was no rain in the forecast! As I am getting ready to come to work it's pouring outside and the thunder is so loud that my dogs are going crazy. Then I open garage door and there is hail coming down like crazy. Obviously the weatherman didn't get it right today.


If you woke up this morning to the same situation then it is highly possible that you extremely frustrated because of the traffic and because everyone seems to be driving irrationally.


Did your home get struck by hail? If so we are here to help.


Hail damage can lead to roof damage and roof damage to water damage. If you experiencing water damage in your home or business due to our unexpected storm please call us we are here to get you back in preloss condition as soon as possible. Do not leave what can be taken care of today for tomorrow. Leaving a water damage unattended can be very pricey in long run. What may seem very minimal can lead to mold damage. Who wants to deal with MOLD?

We would like to honor all administrative assistance and express how much we appreciate all their hard work.

Administrative week is the last week of April and Administrative Professional day is 4/26/17.

How did administrative professional day begin?

During World War II, there was a shortage of skilled administrative personnel in the United States due to Depression-era birth-rate decline and booming post-war business. The National Secretaries Association, founded in 1942, was formed to recognize the contributions of administrative personnel to the economy, support their personal development, and to help attract workers to the administrative field. Key figures who created the holiday were the president of the National Secretaries Association, Mary Barrett, president of Dictaphone Corporation, C. King Woodbridge, and public relations account executives at Young and Rubicam, Harry F. Klemfuss and Daren Ball.

The official period of celebration was first proclaimed by Charles W. Sawyer as "National Secretaries Week", which was held June 1–7 in 1952 with Wednesday, June 4 designated as National Secretaries' Day. The first Secretaries' Day was sponsored by the National Secretaries Association with the support of corporate groups.

In 1955, the observance date of National Secretaries Week was moved to the last full week of April, with Wednesday now designated as Administrative Professionals' Day. The name was changed to Professional Secretaries Week in 1981 and became Administrative Professionals Week in 2000 to encompass the expanding responsibilities and wide-ranging job titles of administrative support staff in the modern economy. The week-long observance was created in order to space out the bookings at restaurants, country clubs, and other places where administrative professionals would be taken out to lunch.
