Meeting Room Matt Fabish talking on large scale losses

On May 4, 2023, SERVPRO Duncanville/Desoto owner, Matt Fabish, participated in a full day of continuing education classes for licensed adjusters in the DFW metroplex. The CE program was not only informative, but also a lot of fun! Complete with Star Wars trivia, prizes and food.

Matt spoke to adjusters from around the metroplex on the topic of Large Losses. He had a few points regarding large fire losses; however, the primary focus of his segment was large scale water or storm losses.

In a large-scale loss, there are many moving parts and Matt took the opportunity to review with the attendees how important it is for restorers to meet the appropriate response goals –

  • Reducing business interruption
  • Reducing claim cost
  • Minimizing call backs

The attendees joined in the conversation by explaining their experiences with large-scale loss and water mitigation jobs. From traveling to the site of a tornado or taking a team to work in a hurricane hit region, there are many obstacles to restoring a house, a neighbor or even a town. Matt was able to talk through many of these road blocks that adjusters and restorers come up against in this post covid world. SERVPRO Duncanville/Desoto is proud to have our own franchise owner take the time to lead others in our industry in excellence.

Dirty Ducts?

Dirty ducts...not dirty duck.

Poor indoor air quality is most often caused by the ventilation system. Many times, the HVAC system runs for awhile without maintenance. Dirty ducts can circulate odors, dust, and mold.

Keeping the HVAC and ductwork clean can potentially extend the longevity of your equipment because that allows it to operate at its highest functionality.

After experiencing smoke or fire damage, or discovering mold, duct cleaning is a crucial part of the restoration process. SERVPRO of Duncanville/DeSoto is equipped to handle this kind of damage, and can often restore the HVAC and ductwork to pre-damage condition.

The SERVPRO® Duct Cleaning System is proven and cost-efficient. For more information on duct
cleaning, or to schedule an appointment, contact SERVPRO of Duncanville/DeSoto at 972-224-8800.
