What To Do And Not Do After Storm Damage.
Damage from tornadoes, thunderstorms, flooding rivers and backed up sewage are tough to clean up. Your first view of the muddy mess mixed with contaminated floodwater and debris can leave you feeling overwhelmed not knowing where to start –or if it’s even safe to begin the cleaning process. Storm damage in Houston can be a tricky business, and we know this because it’s our business.
At SERVPRO of Stafford and Missouri City, we're THE professionals for storm cleanup and flood damage restoration. As the experts, we’d like to share with you the do’s and don’ts of storm damage cleanup. Following these tips will help to speed up the recovery process as well as keep you safe.
Do Call to Your Insurance Agent. As soon as your out of immediate danger and have contacted friends and family to let them know you’re safe, call your insurance agent. They will guide you through the next steps in filing a flood damage claim. They may also provide you with a preferred flood damage restoration company that offer services that are covered by your policy. SERVPRO is the preferred water damage restoration provider for most insurance companies.
Do Contact the Remediation Professionals. If not already directed by your insurance agent, or If you can’t get a hold of them right away, call a trusted water damage restoration and mold remediation company. Remediation involves taking steps to prevent further mold damage, complete flood cleanup and sanitization, and restoration of your property to pre-flood condition. Stafford SERVPRO does all this and more!
Do Protect Yourself and Your Family. Severe weather can bring all sorts of dangers into your home, so it’s critical that you are careful upon first entering to survey the damage. Return only if it’s been deemed safe to do so and be extremely cautious. Wear protective clothing to minimize your exposure to toxic black water and jagged debris. Toss out any food that was touched by water –even canned goods. Document your losses by taking photos and listing all the damaged items. If you are working with SERVPRO, we will do this for you.
Don’t Turn On The Your Utilities Until You Get The All Clear. Because of the risk of potentially life-threatening situations, don’t turn on your water, gas, or electricity until you've gotten the okay from the fire department or other authority. During times of severe weather, city officials or the fire department will shut off the utilities for safety reasons. Don’t try to override this precaution.
Don’t Use Electronics in Moist Environments. The risk of electrocution is high with flooding and the uncertainty that the power has been shut off. If you think the electricity is still on, do not enter any flooded or damp areas, and wait until the water damage is completely dry before using electronics.
Don’t Use Fabrics or Furniture Until They Are Properly Cleaned. Anytime you have water damage there is a risk of a mold infestation. Mold is not only destructive to your home and personal items, but it can also cause health problems for sensitive individuals. Be sure to have all water damaged items professionally dried and disinfected before you use them.
Severe weather is common in our area, and Stafford SERVPRO wants to make sure that our neighbors stay safe even after the storm. We are honored to be the preferred service provider for many national insurance companies and hundreds already served in Fort Bend County. Call us whenever disaster strikes; we serve our community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Carpet Cleaning Stafford
We Know Carpet Cleaning!
Even before your team greets a customer, they’re greeted by the appearance of your business.
Make no mistake about it; first impressions are an important part of the sales process. When the first impression is that of a clean and organized business, it puts your customer at ease, and it makes it easier for them to say yes!
That’s why regular commercial carpet cleaning is so important. Maintaining your office carpet in pristine condition lets your customers and sales team know that you’ve taken care of all the details, down to the carpet.
A clean carpet is also hygienic. Accumulation of dirt and grime along with pollen and animal dander that is tracked in by foot traffic can make for an unpleasant and allergenic work environment.
Regular carpeting cleaning is also an opportunity for spot-checking for damaged and worn areas in the carpeting, potentially avoiding accidents.
Call SERVPRO to schedule your home or business carpet cleaning today!
