Storage Is Important

6/9/2022 (Permalink)

Storage Keeping an organized storage is important.

We know your personal items mean a lot to you. Usually when you’re storing them away, it’s important to know they will be safe from harm and will remain in storage until you need them. SERVPRO® of South and Southwest Lubbock is all about safety and helping to restore items and spaces that are damaged. Here’s a few tips we have when it comes to storing your items safely and smartly.

Security: Video surveillance? Key pads? Your own lock? These are all things to pay close attention to. When putting your storage away, it’s recommended to do an overview and look closely as to what kind of security your things have. The more security the better….better safe than sorry!

Flooring/ flooding: Look for high flooring when deciding your storage unit. Higher floors will keep your items safe from potential hazards such as flooding. You can also cover your items with plastic covering to keep them from debris.

Damaged goods: Maybe a disaster struck and your items are destroyed? Let us help! We offer 24/7 emergency service for water and fire damage repair. We use advanced water removal and drying equipment to get your space dried fast.

Have water or flood damage? Call us! 806-780-6311

Record of Items: KEEP a record of your items as a written list to keep track of everything you have to ensure nothing is going missing. Whether you’re storing a few or a lot in your storage space, it’s easy to forget what you have when you’re not in front of it every day.

Insurance: Making sure your possessions are insured and protected are crucial before you put them away in storage. Even if you don’t have homeowners insurance, many storage companies offer insurance and this is a category you won’t want to be cheap on.

We know how much your possessions mean to you and if you ever experience any damage in your storage unit or home, give us a call, we are happy to help!

Snow and Ice Damage in Lubbock, TX

10/11/2021 (Permalink)

Fall has just begun but it is already getting cold here in Lubbock, TX. And colder weather means snow and ice. It is not uncommon here to see snow in October and many people do not know the damage snow and ice can cause to their home. 

Heavy snow fall can cause an overload on your homes roof and in some cases cause your roof to collapse. To prevent this, we recommend getting your home and roof inspected before every winter.

Ice dams can form on your roof, getting water under your shingles and possibly into your homes. To prevent this, we recommend cleaning out your gutters before winter and getting your attic insulated and ventilated.

Icicles forming on your home may be pretty, but they can possibly damage your gutters and your shingles. To prevent this, we recommend using a roof rake to carefully remove any icicles. Insulating and ventilating your attic will also reduce the number of icicles you get on your home.

There are not many things better than sitting inside with your family on a cold evening, drinking hot chocolate and watching movies. SERVPRO® of South and Southwest Lubbock is here for you and we hope that this information helps you so that you do not have to worry about damage snow and ice can cause to your home.

If any damage happens to your home this winter give us a call at (806) 780-6311 for quick emergency recover. We will make it look “Like it never even happened.”

Wind Damage in Lubbock, TX

10/11/2021 (Permalink)

The windiest time of the year here in Lubbock, Texas is January through June. It is only October, but it is never too early to prepare your homes and commercial buildings so that you can limit the amount of damage the West Texas winds can cause. 

Strong winds can cause the shingles on your roof to loosen or even fall off. Strong winds can cause trees, tree limbs or other objects to fall on top of your home or commercial buildings and cause immense damage. Strong winds can cause your windows to break and even the doors to the outside of your home to come off. Strong winds can also cause old homes and buildings to collapse because of the weakened materials the house was built with.

Some ways to help limit the damage the strong winds can cause to your home is:

  1. Get your home and roof inspected yearly
  2. Think about installing impact-resistant windows
  3. Trim the trees in your yard
  4. Secure your shingles with nails or staples
  5. Bring any furniture that you keep outside inside

These are just a couple of ways you can try and limit the damage wind causes to your homes and buildings. 

You can never prevent damage from happening to your home or commercial building 100%. That is why SERVPRO® of South and Southwest Lubbock is here 24/7 to help you. Visit our website for more information or call us at (806) 780-6311 for immediate help.
