Hurricane Emergency Management in North Texas

Hurricane Emergency Management in North Texas

For those of us living in Dallas County, hurricane preparedness is different than for those living close to coastal areas, such as Houston, Galveston, or Louisiana.  Many of us living in Collin County don’t typically live in flood zones, so we don’t tend to prepare as readily as our coastal neighbors.

Yet, understanding how to prepare for a hurricane is still important.  Dallas County is often a safe destination for evacuees. It’s important for us to know evacuation routes, where shelters will open in our city, and where we can drop off food and supplies.

Emergency Management offices are important sources of information and news for information and planning in Dallas County and surrounding counties.

Small Business Week Celebrates SERVPRO of Richardson

5/2/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Richardson Vans Lined Up SERVPRO of Richardson has been a trusted leader in the restoration industry since 1986.

Small Business Week Celebrates SERVPRO of Richardson

As we celebrate Small Business Week, our family is reminded of our own business, SERVPRO of Richardson.

Although SERVPRO can be found in every state across the country, each franchise is independently owned and operated -- many of them by families, like ours.

The Weaver family began SERVPRO of Richardson in 1986.  Our small business consisted of its two owners doing everything on their own -- from answering the phone to leaving our small office to do the job itself.  Back then, SERVPRO was only in the business of carpet cleaning. Our phone rang a few times per week, and no one was up to answer a 3 A.M. water damage emergency call.  We were trying to establish ourselves in the Dallas market along with the relatively new restoration industry.

Our family has been in Texas for almost ten generations, and we've always lived and worked in or around our home in Dallas Texas.  We can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Today, our headquarters is only minutes away from downtown Dallas and only a hop away from every major highway.  We chose this location to have a direct path to any job in DFW.  Plus, we're only minutes away from the great food and entertainment Dallas has to offer.  We also have a second office on the border of Richardson and Plano off 75 and George Bush. 

SERVPRO of Richardson has grown in the last 30 years.  We now offer 24 hour emergency service to any home or business.  We still do carpet cleaning, but we've added other services as well:

Residential Services

Commercial Services

Esporta

We are one of the few Esporta certified and trained businesses in North Texas.  This makes us uniquely qualified to sanitize clothing and other textiles that have been affected by Category 2 Water, Category 3 Water, Mold, and Smoke and Fire Damage.  With an 85%+ success rate, we have among the highest rate of success in the textile restoration industry.

Storm Damage Cleanup

In the past 30 years, we have traveled to many areas of our country that have been devastated by natural disasters.  We have responded to hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, and even major hail damaged communities.

Commercial Services

We have contracts and agreements with many businesses and commercial properties in North Texas.  From being their go to SERVPRO franchise for any size disaster to having their air ducts or commercial carpets cleaned, we are always available.  If you are a business also interested in a long term partnership with us, just give us a call. We offer free consultations.

Reconstruction

Our reconstruction division is the newest in our family of services.  We decided to add this division to our company after talking to many customers who wished we could finish their projects from start to end.  Many times, properties are permanently damaged by a water damage, fire damage, or mold. While we would be available for restoration and mitigation, reconstruction was not part of our offer. 

In the end, we listened to the call of our customers and opened reconstruction to become one of the few full service restoration contractors in North Texas.  We take our slogan, “Like it never even happened,” to heart!

Check out our before & after photo gallery of work we’ve recently done.

Restoration Industry Experts

We have grown to be a trusted expert in the restoration industry, and we’re now also a full service restoration provider.  We have a great group of employees that help us accomplish this every day.

We’ve grown from our first two employees.  Today, our family employs 30 full time and highly trained technicians.  Our staff loves the work they do -- some of them have been even been with us for nearly 15 years!  Our work is not easy and many days are long, but the amount of time we spend with each other makes us tight knit.  We have seen each other get married, have their first child, and even welcome grandchildren. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Like it never even happened,” only happens here.

Thank You for 32 Years!

12/22/2017 (Permalink)

Billy and Mary Weaver, 1986

Our franchise was started 32-years ago as a family owned and operated business. We still are to this day. Back then, we had one service -- carpet cleaning. Today, we offer seven core services, and we're preparing for more in the upcoming year. 

The past 32-years haven't had a dull day. In the emergency restoration industry, we simply never know what will happen. From a water damage at a large business or a fire at a home to a major storm hitting a portion of our country, we have to always be ready when our phone rings. 

This past year, our office traveled to Rockport and Houston to help with the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey, and we spent nearly three months working for those who called for our help. Communities there continue to recover. We'd like to acknowledge the strength of our fellow Texans as they rebuild, and we'd also like to thank other SERVPRO franchises, restoration companies, and volunteers from around the United States as they helped our fellow Texans. 

2017 was a busy year for our franchise. We saw our SERVPRO family grow. Our team has many new faces, and our seasoned employees are mentoring a new generation. Our employees come from all walks of life with a unified purpose--to help. Our technicians have responded to calls at every hour of the day, during all holidays, without complaint. We always say that it takes a unique person to work in our industry and enjoy themselves. The jobs are not always pleasant to see (or smell), but if the spirit of stewardship lives strong in that person, they can always perform their work and be satisfied in having helped. Those are the people our franchise has hired.

We are grateful for our employees and customers, and we look forward to a happy and safe 2018. Thank you for 32 years, Richardson.  We look forward to many more. 

Our 30-Year Anniversary: Thank You, Richardson

Billy and Mary Weaver months before opening SERVPRO of Richardson in 1986.

We opened our doors December of 1986.  Back then, our owners were expecting their son; he turns 30-years-old himself in a few months and now co-owns this business.

 

This place has changed in three decades.  We started cleaning carpets with our two original owners.  Today, our range of services has grown to include water and fire damages, mold remediation, restoration, cleaning such as biohazards, soft contents, and, yes, still carpet, but with much more modern machinery.  

 

Even with our growth, our first dollar made hangs in a frame in our entrance hallway. Our first check received, also for $1.00, is nearby.  It's important for us to remember where we started and retain our humility.

 

SERVPRO of Richardson is an independently run, family owned business, and the values we hold continue to drive out daily operations.  Our goal is to provide service of the highest quality to our clients in their time of need.  A vital component to our first class service comes from our employees. Our technicians and managers are always trained in the latest restoration and reconstruction techniques, and they have a passion for helping clients put their homes and businesses back together after an emergency situation.  Without our employees, our business simply wouldn't be what it is.  Over the years, they too have become part of our family.

 

It's been a great adventure so far, and we haven't done it alone.  

 

To the thousands of clients that have given us the opportunity to restore their homes and businesses, thank you.

 

To our employees that helped us grow our business, thank you.  

 

We appreciate your support more than we can express in words.

 

We're grateful to have been part of the Richardson community for the past 30 years, and we hope to continue making it "Like it never even happened" for many more.
