Remembering Harvey

8/17/2018 (Permalink)

Hurricane Harvey dropped more than 20 Trillion Gallons of water on Texas and Louisiana last August. As the anniversary of the immense devastation that wrecked the Gulf Coast last year looms, we remember those whose lives were drastically changed by catastrophe. Houston as a city pushes on, to rebuild and to remember, and to honor those who are no longer with us. Not only will we remember the devastation, but we will also remember those who put those into harms way just to help the victims with nowhere to go. The amount of support that came from surrounding areas was immense, and we should all take a moment to thank those people as well. Altogether Hurricane Harvey changed so many people's lives and wrecked so much damage, and as this anniversary passes, let us take a moment to think of the victims, as well as the survivors of this tragedy.

Hurricanes are coming!

6/29/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Hurricanes are coming! A hurricane is a type of storm called a tropical cyclone, which forms over tropical or subtropical waters according to the National Ocean Service.

The hurricane season is upon us, so be sure to pay attention to the news when they begin to announce what storms have formed and what their trajectories are. Although there is not much you can do to stop a storm from heading your direction, there is plenty that you can do to help prevent additional damage to your home if you are in the hurricane's path. According to the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management, here are some things you should be doing at the beginning of every hurricane season.

  • Keep handy a supply of lumber, plywood, timber, etc. for battening down purposes.
  • Check thoroughly the roof of your house, hurricane shutters, hooks and latches and repair where necessary.
  • Trim trees that touch power lines or hang over the house and other buildings.
  • Have simple first-aid equipment such as iodine, bandages, eye lotion, etc. at home.
  • Latch down securely all small buildings in the yard such as outdoor kitchens, pit latrines, tool sheds, barns, etc.
  • Keep the number for a great, professional, experienced restoration company on hand and somewhere safe, that way you can contact us if you end up needing our services.

These tips will not prevent any damage from a hurricane from occurring at all, but they can definitely help mitigate that damage that could possibly occur and help save you money in the process! Not everyone is in a storm’s pathway, but if you are, please, be sure to take precautions and be on alert this hurricane season! If you do happen to live in a storm-ridden area take these recommendations into consideration and ensure that you have someone there when you need them.

Preparation is Key!

Storm Damage Preparation is Key! Pictured is Beltway 8 in Houston, Texas after the immense flooding during Hurricane Harvey.

While it isn’t quite the hurricane season yet, it is still a great time to consider how well protected your home is. With floods being one of the most common natural disasters in the country, it is always a good idea to be prepared in the case that your home could be flooded. Here is a list of questions to ask yourself very quickly:

  • Do you know your flood risk?
  • Does your family have a contingency plan in place in the event that your home is flooded?
  • Do you have flood insurance?

The main thing to know, is that floods do not just happen as a result of a hurricane, or because you live near a body of water. While certain factors can make you more likely to be at risk, it is good to know that floods can happen anywhere, at any time. They can be caused by a whole list of factors, and often occur suddenly, causing immense amounts of damage. This is why planning ahead in the event of a flood is the best idea, so that you know who to call and you can get a jumpstart of the long process of remediation. No one wants to consider the possibility of having their home involved in a flood event, but it is always better to be prepared for anything instead of caught off-guard. For more information on how to prepare yourself for the upcoming hurricane season, take a look at Ready.gov's webpage on flooding. If you or your family has a home that was involved in a flood event, call (210)-858-9696 to see how we can help!

Storm Damage Flooded basement in Saginaw, Michigan Flooded basement in Saginaw, Michigan as a result of a recent storm

Michigan got hit with a bad flood affecting many people's houses, so SERVPRO of Stone Oak was quick to respond and help out many people that were in need. The well trained crew worked diligently and made sure to meet all of the customers expectations. 

The crew worked on many basements that were flooded out as well as demoing full houses. Most of the basements still had water inside of them so extraction of the water was the first step that needed to be done. After the water was extracted the crew had to demo the items that were ruined such as cabinets and drywall. Drying equipment was then placed to dry down the floor and concrete or cinder block walls. The last step that was done was the spraying down of antimicrobial to ensure no mold could possibly form.
