Mild Storm Damage Delays Building Under Construction in North, TX

10/26/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Westfield was called out to a partially flooded building that was under construction in North, TX.  Flash flooding was the source of water puddles in sections of the building.  Fortunately, mainly concrete flooring was affected.  The water, however, had gotten in-depth in some areas and affected a very important electrical room.  SERVPRO of Westfield extracted water from the structure before setting up drying equipment.

After receiving the weekend call for help from the customer, the technicians were able to arrive on site within an hour and a half.  The customer called SERVPRO of Westfield with a level of confidence because we had previously performed restoration for the customer. Our team worked quickly to get this building back functioning in order for the contractors to finish production on schedule.

Houston, TX Forecast - Rain, Rain and More Rain

10/10/2018 (Permalink)

The forecast in Houston, TX calls for several heavy downpours, increasing daily. Continuous heavy rain can heighten safety concerns.

Heavy rain and flooding are considered two of the most common and widespread natural disasters in the United States.  No matter the location, there is always potential for flood damage.  In the last 5 years, via floodsmart.gov reports, all 50 states have experienced floods or flash floods.  Just because you haven't experienced a flood in the past, does not mean you won't in the future. 

Please remember these safety tips:

  • Stay away from floodwaters.  Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet.
  • If you approach a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way.  If you are caught on a flooded road and waters are rising rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground.  Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
  • Keep children out of the water.  They can be curious and often lack judgment about running water or contaminated water.

If flood damage strikes your Houston, TX home or business, don’t hesitate to contact SERVPRO of Westfield (281) 907-0018. Even minor floods have the potential to cause major damage to a structure when not treated quickly and properly, and the cleanup is often an overwhelming task.  SERVPRO is prepared to handle any size disaster.

Flood Water Facts

6/25/2018 (Permalink)

Across the United States, flooding is one of the most commonly widespread weather-related disasters. Whether your home or business is near a coastline, along city streets, in the mountains, near a river or even in the desert, there is always potential for flood damage.

Though you may have never experienced a flood in the past, there’s no level of security to assure that you won't in the future.  In fact, 20% of all claims paid by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) were for policies in low-risk communities. 

According to the American Red Cross (ARC), floods cause more damage in the U.S. every year than any other weather-related disaster.  The ARC offers the following safety tips:

  • Stay away from floodwaters as much as possible.  If you approach a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around, and go another way.  Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet.
  • If you approach a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way.  If you are caught on a flooded road and water are rising rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground.  Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
  • Keep children out of the water.  They are curious and often lack judgment about running water or contaminated water.

If your home or business is ever affected by a flood, contact the professionals at SERVPRO of Westfield at (281) 907-0018.  Even minor floods have the potential to cause major damage to a structure when not treated quickly and properly, and the cleanup is often an overwhelming task.  The SERVPRO system is prepared to handle any size disaster.  The sooner work begins; the sooner your home or business can return “Like it never even happened.”
