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.

Mold Remediation Performed at a Local Lewisville Business
SERVPRO of Flower Mound is licensed with the state of Texas to remediate microbial growth in your home or business.
SERVPRO of Flower Mound was called out to a local business in Lewisville to perform an inspection due to a musty odor. Our crews arrived onsite and performed a moisture inspection with our infrared cameras. These infrared cameras are perfect for when you need to see hidden moisture as they detect heat patterns and reliably measure temperatures to pinpoint the affected areas.
Once the affected areas were taped off to show the scope of work that was needed a small 1x1 exploratory section was removed in order to see what we were dealing with behind the drywall. We found microbial growth and informed the property manager on what the plan of action would be.
A remediation plan was put into place, our crew was very detailed in their process, and we achieved clearance to restore the property back to preloss condition. Check out our Before & After section to see the clean result!

Commercial property takes on water
A Community in need deserves SERVPRO of Flower Mound indeed
Mitigation is defined as the act of mitigating, or lessening the force or intensity of something unpleasant. The management staff at one local assisted living facility took the message to heart when they noticed water getting in through some windows. As the deluge of rain fell from the heavy black storm clouds technicians at the SERVPRO of Flower Mound office received the call and began deploying resources. Before the clouds had a chance to retreat technicians were on site working quickly and around the clock. Within a few days the project site was brought back to preloss condition with limited business interruption.
