  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Move any paintings, art objects, computers, documents, and other sensitive valuables to a dry place.
  • Don’t enter affected areas if electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers, or electrical equipment are exposed to water. Always avoid electrical shock hazards.

Flooding and Staying Safe

4/11/2019 (Permalink)

Deep East Texas is prone to the yearly flood situation and as we have seen with the past few years, hurricanes are always a concern to bring heavy amounts of rain in our direction.

In the event that your home has flooded, it is strictly important to conduct a list of safety checks before returning inside.  The Department of Housing and Urban Development has produced an in-depth document outlining these safety steps.  Some steps include:

  • Checking the roof for dips across the surface
  • Checking external walls to determine if they are no longer plum
  • Checking the foundation from the outside to see if it has been damaged
  • Making sure electricity and gas have been shut off

If flood waters do reach inside your home, they can cause multiple safety hazards and threats. Mold is a real possibility and a valid concern for your personal safety. And if you have an older home, there is also the risk of lead or asbestos contamination. Flood water contains multiple health hazards and just because the visible water is gone, it doesn’t mean the contaminants are no longer a threat.

Checking on your home after a flooding event is, obviously, natural. But even just a few moments of exposure can have significant risks for you health. At SERVPRO of Lufkin/ S. Nacogdoches County, we provide emergency water disaster services for all of Deep East Texas. We have given our mitigation specialists extensive training for safely entering these types of situations and for getting the remediation process started.  It is our hope you never have to experience this type of natural disaster or other types of water damages but if you do, we are a phone call away at (936) 559-0404 and are always ready to help.

Old Appliances Can Cause Water Loss Incidents in Your Home

General Old Appliances Can Cause Water Loss Incidents in Your Home When did you last check the health of your washer?

The Deep East Texas Area is surrounded by different bodies of water and at this time of the year, heavy rains can cause huge issues for your home. But, sometimes, the worst water loss issues in your home come from inside. An old or aging dishwasher or washing machine can cause massive damage in a short amount of time, leaving your home in a damp state.

Like all things, appliances have a finite lifespan. As frustrating as it is to have to replace one, for majority of their use, they function as a convince on our lives. So just as you might see a doctor once or twice a year for a routine visit, so should you have your appliances regularly service. Regular service and maintenance can prevent threats to your home, but even still hoses become disconnected, and seals wear out inside of the appliance itself. When these situations occur, high volumes of water could end up in the affected areas and require you to seek…..

From the moment that our experienced SERVPRO of Lufkin/ S. Nacogdoches County professionals get the call, we respond quickly. We understand that the longer water soaks into construction materials, the more irreparable damage that occurs. Once we arrive, we assure that water to the appliance has gotten stopped and assess the full scope of the damage that our team faces in a thorough inspection.

Extraction begins shortly after that with the use of various sump pumps and wet-vacs. Larger pools of water damage could require the use of truck-mounted pumps from our SERVPRO fleet. Once the water has gotten removed from the floors, we set out to thoroughly dry the area, clean it, and deodorize.

Community Belonging to the Community The beauty of our community never ceases to amaze!

On March 30th and 31st, SERVPRO of Lufkin/S. Nacogdoches County had the privilege of being a part of two incredible community events in our local area.

First, Raguet Elementary School's Color Run, benefitting the school's ability to fund literacy initiatives, learning excursions, and family fun nights throughout the year. Young runners and their families gathered at Pecan Acres Park for the event and SERVPRO of Lufkin/S. Nacogdoches County had a hand in the fun. Prior to the run, students got to Slime some of their teachers with SERVPRO color Slime. Our own Patrick Castillo even got to be a part of the sliming. 

Next was The Helping House Family Kite Fest at the Nacogdoches County airport. The festival benefitted The Helping House, whose goal is to provide networking and support for all families in the Deep East Texas area who are affected by autism and other sensory and developmental delays, whether your child is a full-time student at The Helping House or not. The event was a blast and the turnout was amazing.

Being Prepared for Spring Weather in Deep East Texas

3/26/2019 (Permalink)

General Being Prepared for Spring Weather in Deep East Texas Texans know all too well, a storm can and will surprise us.

Spring in Texas is ripe for any number of weather-related incidents. Anything from Heavy thunderstorms, to tornadoes, to flooding, Spring storms can be tough on homeowners. Since 1980, losses from thunderstorms have increased to an astounding fifteen billion dollars in 2018. Hail storms alone last year cost home owners one billion dollars according to the Insurance Information Institute.

Obviously, we are unable to predict what the weather will be, but with careful planning, you can take the appropriate steps to be prepared when storms hit.

  • Cut down dead or dying branches from trees near your home that could fall during a storm.
  • Always have an emergency kit prepared with a first aid kit, flashlights, extra batteries, non-perishable food, water, and a radio in case of a lengthy power outage.
  • Surge protectors are relatively inexpensive and can save your electronics from being destroyed during a power surge.
  • Keep tabs on the health and stability of your home’s roof, especially after East Texas’ winter months of freezing precipitation. Also, keep your gutters clean and free of debris backup which could flood portions of your lawn and, potentially, your home.
  • Finally, make sure loose items on your decks and patios are tied down during heavy storms.

These simple tasks can help protect your home during the uneven weathered Texas Spring months.
