indoor water damage and flood cutting The flooding in your home may not always require a flood cut but oftentimes they can be an integral part of the mitigation and rebuilding process.

If you have experienced a flood in your Nacogdoches home, then you know just how quickly they can cause damage and how widespread that damage can be. If you are fortunate enough to have never experienced a flood in your home, then there might be a few things you are unfamiliar with.

One of the most common repair processes is flood cutting, which is used after there has been sitting water in your home. Much like the name suggests, flood cutting is the process of removing around 2-3 feet of drywall and insulation that have been affected by water damage. After the removal is done, professionals can then replace the drywall and insulation.

The flooding in your home may not always require a flood cut but oftentimes they can be an integral part of the mitigation and rebuilding process. They will help eliminate the spread of mold and bacteria but removing the affected drywall pieces, which can be exceedingly difficult if not impossible to completely clean.

So, if you have had a flood in your Nacogdoches home, do not hesitate to contact the pros here at SERVPRO of Lufkin/S. Nacogdoches.

Deep East Texas Reconstruction

1/27/2020 (Permalink)

Deep East Texas businesses that suffer major property damage can rebuild economically and successfully. But it does involve following a few basic guidelines.

When your business or commercial property suffers damage from fire, water, wind, or other natural causes, your immediate concern should be ways to protect your property from more damage. When a storm is over that doesn’t mean the potential for damage is over. For example, broken windows should be boarded up. Compromised doors should be secured from more weather damage and (if possible) from entry. A damaged roof should be covered with roof tarps.

Be Careful About Entering

At SERVPRO of Lufkin/S. Nacogdoches County we always advise business owners to use caution before entering a damaged commercial property. After major damage always get the go ahead to enter from the fire department, police, or other immediate responder in charge. Check for power lines, gas leaks, and structural damage. If any of your electrical equipment is wet, contact an electrician.

You do want to get in as soon as you can so you can prepare loss information for your insurance claims and get estimates of the damages. Take your time examining the property and write down all the damage so you can present a complete list to the insurer.

Once you protect and secure your business or commercial property, professionals at SERVPRO of Lufkin/S. Nacogdoches County can begin the restoration process. Many business owners need reconstruction work to get their property back to its preloss condition. Other critical steps business and commercial property owners should take are:

Call your insurance company


Your insurance agent should be among the first people you contact about any commercial property damage. He or she can be extremely helpful. Insurance agents go through the process of dealing with property damage all the time. They’re experts at assessing damage and making sure you do what you need to do to properly file and collect an insurance claim. Each insurance company has certain policies and procedures you want to be certain to follow.

Thoroughly examine the damage and talk to your local building department


After assessing the damage to your business or commercial property, contact your local town building department for information on the required building permits. Permits are always required for any demolition or permanent repairs, reconstruction, roofing, filling, and other types of site development. Regulations vary from Lufkin to Nacogdoches and other towns.

Protect your commercial property and yourself from contractor fraud


Only hire licensed contractors to do repairs on your commercial property. Check with your local building department to ensure the contractor is licensed. If you hire a contractor, don’t pull the permits for them. If the contractor makes this request, it may be an indication that the contractor is not properly licensed.

Take photographs of damage caused by the storm or weather event
Photographs of the after-storm condition of your commercial property can provide proof of damage for insurance and other purposes. Take the photos immediately after the damage and before repair work begins. Keep all your receipts for insurance purposes.


Prepare long before a storm hits

Don’t wait for a fire, flood, storm, or other natural disaster to begin preparing. Take a complete set of photographs of your commercial property in its current condition to serve as “before” pictures. Date those photographs and store them off site. If and when a storm strikes your business, you can take “after” pictures to show the full extent of the damage.
