Storm Emergency Services
Storm Emergency Services
Storms are not a common occurrence in Texas. In Dallas, we see just a few days of freezing temperatures in a year. Every few years, a strong hail storm can occur. Otherwise, we have the luxury of enjoyable temperate or warm temperatures for the majority of the year.
Yet, when there is a winter storm in Dallas and Fort Worth, we see a sharp increase in properties that experience damage. From flooded homes due to frozen pipes bursting, to fire damages caused by portable heaters, we are always ready to help.
SERVPRO of Ellis County is always active during storm situations. We offer the following services:
Water Damage (Flooding)
Usually caused by frozen pipes that have burst, but other times by a damaged roof, we are available 24/7 for your water damage. We will extract standing water and place drying equipment in your home. We will monitor the drying process until your home has dried correctly.
Regardless of the reason for the fire damage, we are available to provide the following:
- Roof Tarping: we will tarp the damaged portion of your roof using thick, weatherproof plastic. This will prevent further precipitation from entering your home until the roof can be permanently fixed.
- Board Ups: we will board up any damaged portion of your property, such as doors and windows. This will prevent precipitation from entering your home and deter possible break-ins.
- Temporary Fencing: along with board ups, we can install a temporary fence around your property to deter the public from entering your property and provide an extra layer of security.
- 24/7 Security Guard: when it is impossible to perform immediate board ups or install temporary fencing (for example, if we’re in the middle of an ice storm), we can assign a security guard to protect your property until our technicians can safely provide other emergency services.
Move-Out / Pack-Out for Contents
Sometimes, a move-out or pack-out is needed. This is especially the case when the majority or entire property has been affected by smoke or soot. We will pack-outs your property’s contents and take them to our facility, where they can be cleaned and stored until they’re safe to be returned.
Temporary Warehouse Space
When a move-out or pack-out is done, we will provide temporary storage space to keep your items safe until they can be returned.
If you have textiles (clothing, plush animals, shoes, etcetera) that have been affected by Cat 2 or Cat 3 water or smoke and soot, they can be taken back to our facility for cleaning. Priority clothing can be cleaned returned in as little as 72-hours. Learn more about how we clean and prove the cleanliness of water-affected textiles and smoke and soot-affected textiles.
