Her review is below.

"Greatest experience in a very trying time. My house flooded from a broken ice maker line while I was at work. Angel was there within 45 minutes and had the water extracted lightning fast. He came back everyday exactly when he said he would and dried out my house perfectly! Thank you SERVPRO of Olmos Park!"

Why SERVPRO? SERVPRO Uses Industrial Grade Equipment and Cleaning Products on your Home or Business

4/6/2022 (Permalink)

If your home or business has suffered a water damage event, simply cleaning up the water and opening up the windows will not completely dry the space, leaving your home or business vulnerable to future mold growth (known as secondary damage).  SERVPRO of Olmos Park uses industrial grade dehumidifiers and fans to completely dry your home or business.  SERVPRO of Olmos Park uses moister testing devices to make sure your walls, closets, and floors are dry before we leave your home and close out the job.  In addition to drying, commercial grade anti-fungal treatments are applied in order to prevent mold from forming.

If your home or business has suffered a fire damage event, air scrubbers are brought in to the area to "scrub" the air clean and remove the chemical and smoke odor. In addition to air scrubbers, special cleaning agents are used to save as many smoke-affected items as possible in your home or business.

If your home or business has suffered a water damage, fire damage, or mold growth event, please do not hesitate to call us today.

Water Filter Causes Leaky Fridge in San Antonio Area Home

1/25/2022 (Permalink)


A poor connection between the water filter and the water supply line can cause a leak in refrigerator models with a water filtering system. The filter may be installed improperly, the wrong size or model for the refrigerator, or it may be so old that the housing or seals are cracked, allowing water to escape. Either way, it can cause a refrigerator leak and water damage to your kitchen floors and cabinets. When a home owner in the San Antonio area came home from work to water all over her kitchen tile flooring, he called SERVPR of Olmos Park to come assess the damage and perform the water damage restoration process.  SERVPRO of Olmos Park is open 24 hours for water damage restoration emergencies and is available now.

Common Causes of Commercial Building Fires

1/24/2022 (Permalink)


The Top Three Common Causes of Commercial Building Fires

  1. Cooking/Kitchen Appliances

Cooking remains at the top of the list as a cause of non-residential fires at 25% to 30%. The fires sometimes started because of human error while cooking and sometimes by an appliance malfunctioning.

Because kitchens are an extremely high-risk zone, strong effort should be taken to ensure full protection and prevention. Sprinklers, alarms and easily accessible fire extinguishers are an absolute must.

  1. Intentional

Intentional fires is the next common cause of a non-residential fire, with roughly 10% of fires occurring from arson.  Intentional fires are most likely to occur after working hours, between 3 p.m. to 12 a.m.  An arsonist may start a fire anywhere, but bathrooms, trash cans, dumpsters and garages are likely spots.

While you can’t prevent arson completely, you can take precautions to limit the damage and opportunities:

  • Make sure trash cans are emptied every day.
  • If possible, keep dumpsters away from the building so a dumpster fire can’t spread to the building.
  • Keep trees and shrubs trimmed to make them harder to set on fire and so arsons can’t use them for cover while setting a fire.
  • Put up motion detection cameras or lights in dark or normally unused areas so any fires can be caught and put out faster.
  • Install smoke/fire curtains near the doorways of the areas most likely to be used for arson.
  1. Human Error/Unintentional

Human error, or unintentional fires, are also responsible for about 10% of fires. Because there are a vast number of reasons why a fire might occur accidentally, employee fire safety training is extremely important.
