Commercial fire damage in Fort, Worth, Texas If your commercial property experiences fire damage, contact SERVPRO today!

Fires can be devastating to small businesses in Fort Worth, TX. Not only do they cause extensive damage to equipment and property, but fires often disrupt daily operations, leading to heavy financial losses. Fortunately, fire insurance policies are available, offering many financial benefits. 

  • Coverage for physical damages
  • Replacement or repair of office fixtures
  • Protection against lost business income
  • Compensation for costs of doing business in a temporary location

In some situations, this type of policy covers lost data, the interruption of digital operations, and other computer-related business dealings. Ask your insurance provider for specific information. 

Identify and Reduce Risks

If you own the property or building where your business operates, you may work closely with your insurance company or a fire restoration professional to identify the most common risks and take steps to protect your premises. Even if you don't own the building, you can look for problem spots such as overloaded power strips and extension cords, stacks of flammable materials near heat sources, aging appliances, and indoor smoking areas. You may be eligible for fire insurance that covers your business contents.

Look Outside of Your Business Walls

Fires are generally unexpected and very destructive. In fact, many businesses did have appropriate preventative measures in place before suffering damage. Fires aren't always the result of something that occurs within the workplace. Sometimes, the emergency is caused by the activities of neighboring businesses, extreme weather, rioting, or vandalism. You may require coverage for the costs of smoke cleanup even if flames never reach your building. 

Understand Your Coverage Needs

As you consider your business needs and discuss coverage options with your insurance provider, be realistic about your needs. Too many business owners purchase minimum coverage and then don't have the necessary funding for complete fire restoration services. Ask your insurance representative about replacement cost versus cash value terms and eligibility requirements. Make sure you have enough coverage to get you through the entire restoration process. 

Small businesses may be particularly susceptible to damages, but the right fire insurance coverage offers important protection. Learn more today to make sure your business has the coverage it needs.

Some of the Regular Water Damages SERVPRO Sees in Fort Worth Hotels

Water damage can happen anywhere in a hotel, but some areas and types of damage happen far more often than others. When problems go beyond simple cleanup and sanitation matters, your cleaning personnel or company may be ill-equipped to handle the consequences of significant water damage. SERVPRO of South Central Fort Worth, Edgecliff Village specializes in fast and complete hotel services, ensuring rooms stay clean, undamaged, and pleasant-smelling after the incident. If these common problems happen in your building, call us or use our Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) system to get a crew of technicians to your location.

Overflowing Sinks and Bathtubs

One of the reasons SERVPRO is called into hotels when a guest causes a sink or bathtub to overflow. Determining when and why these problems happen can be difficult. At the same time, guests remain in their rooms, so it may not be uncommon to only find out about the matter days later or when water starts to leak elsewhere and cause further damages. SERVPRO inspectors create a detailed assessment of the situation to understand what specific problems might come from these scenarios and estimate our work times and costs.

Water Line Leaks and Breaks

With so many water lines running throughout the building, it may not be uncommon for them to leak or burst, especially when they are ancient. Be sure to call us as soon as you suspect that a water line may have been ruptured, as the speed of our response may be critical to prevent as much damage as possible. To avoid most water line problems in your hotel, make sure that pipes receive semi-regular maintenance and checkups.

Left-Open Windows

If guests can open windows in your hotel rooms, they may sometimes forget to close them before a storm rolls through the area. Rain pouring through an open window can cause significant damage to the carpet and upholstery; however, the worst effects are preventable by calling SERVPRO.


SERVPRO of South Central Fort Worth, Edgecliff Village can handle both small, isolated incidents and large-scale disasters throughout an entire building. For the best outcomes, call quick after an incident!
