Are you Ready for a Storm?
SERVPRO of Alamo Ranch recently sent crews to help with flooding in the Beaumont, Texas area along with the Houston, Texas area. These fast developing storms can cause havoc in your life and can be dangerous and costly.
So people ask us, what did you do in the houses. Well first of all, this water in the home is rising water and is categorized as category 3 or black water. What does that mean? It is the same category as sewage. The water may contain human waste, animal waste, pesticides, and many other chemicals.
So, any porous materials will have to be removed. That means drywall, trim, floor coverings, and cabinets. After removal, it will need to be reconstructed. This is a costly process and you will need to check your insurance. This is generally not covered by normal insurance, but should be covered by flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program.
Check you insurance coverages and make sure that you have what you need. If you have any questions, please call SERVPRO of Alamo Ranch at 210-670-9591.
