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.

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.
