High School Sideline Jackets Restored
Sideline Jackets restored with the Esporta Wash System!
When a high school experiences a loss in one of their storage rooms and needs their textiles restored, we are here to help!
SERVPRO of Flower Mound/Lewisville is an Esporta Certified Firm with several Certified Operators on staff to restore textiles 24/7. When we received the call that the sideline jackets were in the affected room we were onsite fast to load them up and bring them to our facility for restoration. We were able to restore 100% of the jackets and return them back to the facility before the cold weather hit!
Thank you to the Athletic Department for trusting SERVPRO of Flower Mound/Lewisville to provide quality service. We look forward to seeing the athletes wearing these jackets throughout the colder months!
Don't Let a Busted Pipe Ruin Your Day!
Behind the scenes of the break room our team is restoring at a commercial facility.
It's Monday morning, your pumpkin spice latte is extra hot, and you're ready to have a great productive day! Fast forward to an hour later when a busted pipe in the ceiling causes water to flood the entire first floor workstation and break room. No need to stress, just give SERVPRO of Flower Mound/Lewisville a call! (Luckily this customer had our number from a previous event and knew exactly who to call!)
Our restoration team was onsite fast in order to remove the standing water and stabilize the environment. After the affected areas were extracted we placed air movers and dehumidifiers to begin the restoration process. It might not be the ideal work environment however, our team made it safe for all employees to maneuver throughout the facility which provides little to no business interruption.
If you experience a loss at your business, give our office a call! 972-420-4771
Restoring Your Sentimental Items After a Fire Loss
Sometimes after a loss contents are deemed "unsalvageable" due to their small monetary value however, sometimes these contents have the highest sentimental value to our customers. After a fire it's customary for an insurance company to make decisions whether it is more economical to clean and restore contents or to go ahead and pay to replace them. After they have done their review and it turns out to be more cost effective to replace then those contents are deemed "unsalvageable".
This scrap book was removed from a house fire by our restoration crew and because it was covered in soot and smoke, the scrap book was deemed "unsalvageable". This customer is a widow and the photos inside contained memories of her and her husband throughout their years together. Our cleaning team took it upon themselves to clean the scrap book along with every photo inside in order to return it to the customer.
SERVPRO of Flower Mound/Lewisville takes pride in our work and strives to go above and beyond for all of our customers. If you experience a loss in your home, give our team a call and know that we are here to make it "Like it never even happened."
Spending time exploring our beautiful city
City Hall has a veterans memorial on the front left side for everyone to spend a moment.
Some of you may not know that prior to our franchise name change we serviced the residents of Lewisville, Tx. When our corporate office announced we would be able to add Lewisville onto our franchise name we were elated!
The city of Lewisville is beautiful and the people within this community are amazing. With over 100,000 residents spanning 36 square miles it has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. The commercial side of the city is very diverse with its top employers being JPMorgan Chase, Lewisville Independent School District, and Nationstar Mortgage.
We took some time to explore the city and see everything it has to offer. There are so many beautiful areas throughout Lewisville that we had to snap a few pictures. Check out our Facebook for a glimpse!
Using a Portable Fire Extinguisher
Educate yourself prior to a loss happening.
A portable fire extinguisher can be a life and property saving tool when used correctly. In order to operate a fire extinguisher, the NFPA suggests remembering the word PASS.
- Pull the pin. Hold the nozzle pointing away from you and release the locking mechanism.
- Aim low. Point the fire extinguisher at the base of the fire.
- Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.
- Sweep the nozzle from side to side.
Read the instructions on the fire extinguisher and become familiar with them before a fire breaks out. Encourage your co-workers to do the same. Remember, extinguishers do have their limitations! It is also important to ensure you have the correct type of extinguisher for your business. Keep an eye out for our next blog discussing the 5 different classes of fire extinguishers.

Fire Prevention Week
Residential escape plan in the event of a fire.
This year's theme for Fire Prevention Week is "Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practice your escape!" Keeping this in mind, remember to make a home escape plan with all members of your household and practice it!
Draw a picture of your home just as you would see in a commercial space with red arrows showing the best exit routes. A home escape plan should have two exits from each room in your home (typically a door or window). Make sure those exit routes are clear of clutter and windows can open easily.
After you have your exit routes planned, discuss where everyone will meet once safely out of the house. Practice this a few times to ensure everyone is familiar with the plan. For more information, visit www.fpw.org!

Flower Mound Chamber of Commerce Annual Clay Shoot
This is the team who took 1st place at the clay shoot this year!
Flower Mound Chamber of Commerce has an annual clay shoot benefiting our local first responders and we are honored to be able to a part of it!
