Water Damage Flooded Gym In Crockett Texas Gym Is Closed Until Further Notice

When your house floods, the water can wreak havoc on the structure of the house, your personal belongings, and the health of the inside environment. Flood waters contain many contaminants and lots of mud. High dollar items can get ruined all at once, even with just an inch of water, for example: carpeting, wallboard, appliances, and furniture. A more severe storm or deeper flood may add damage to even more expensive systems, like: ducts, the heater and air conditioner, roofing, private sewage and well systems, utilities, and the foundation.

After a flood, cleaning up is a long and hard process. 

First thing is to call your insurance agent. If your insurance covers the damage, your agent will tell you when an adjuster will contact you. 

Second thing is to call SERVPRO of Lufkin/S. Nacogdoches County and let us help with the clean u and restoration.
