Why Bigger Is Not Always Best for Flood Extraction

You might be in the camp of people that would assume when standing water exists in your home that the best solution is the most powerful piece of equipment in the extractor inventory. While it would stand to reason that larger water removal units could relocate this flood damage more efficiently, there are multiple reasons why smaller submersible units are a better fit for the extraction needs of your residence.

Challenging Damage Areas 

One of the first considerations that our responding technicians must make about flood damage in west Texas homes is the location of these effects. Accessibility is one of the most significant disadvantages to engine-driven pump systems attached to trucks in our SERVPRO Green Fleet. With a larger intake and discharge hoses and attachments, confined spaces limit the functionality of powerful truck-mounted pumps.

Longer Discharge Lines 

A unit is only as good as where it can move standing water to, and while truck-mount systems can pull water at 300 psi, it requires a much shorter discharge hose length for the diameter. While higher volumes can get moved, you have to ensure that you have the right positioning of the intake unit, or it might be ineffective. Submersibles often only have a 2” discharge line, allowing it to span greater distances once water gets collected.

Multiple Units 

While we might have more than one extractor truck in our Green Fleet of service vehicles, several do not typically roll out to the same job site. Our technicians can place multiple electric submersible pumps in clean water residential flooding emergencies to simultaneously move thousands of gallons of water during their runtimes. Our electric sump pumps utilize little power, so we can run multiple units off of a generator at the same time when flood damage severs electricity to the structure.

With extraction being such a vital element to flood recovery after an emergency, choosing the right tool is vital to saving customers time and money. Bigger is not always better, but our SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock team can ensure that you get the most efficient tool for the job. Give us a call anytime at (806) 780-6311.

My Home is Flooded After a Storm. Where Can I Get Help to Restore it to Normal?

7/31/2020 (Permalink)

Reach out to SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock Technicians for Professional Storm Flood Damage Restoration in your Home.

During a storm, heavy rains may lead to flooding, and powerful winds can ruin your west Texas home's roof or other parts. Some post-storm damage can also create health and safety hazards. Once you notice flooding in your home, act immediately by contacting professionals to prevent further damage.

Why should I contact professionals?

Water is pervasive, progressive, and can cause irreversible damage to costly building materials and possessions. You can prevent this by handling the storm flood damage in your west Texas residence within the first 48 hours. Our SERVPRO team can take several steps to prevent long-term damage. We have state-of-the-art equipment and products that help us handle flood damage of any magnitude. We have decades of experience and skills that help us provide effective and prompt restoration services.

Is your inspection process thorough?

We inspect the affected property to determine the proper steps needed to restore it to its preloss condition. We use advanced equipment and tools to conduct the assessment. Our technicians can use borescopes to look into cavities and other hard to reach areas. The devices help us examine the construction method and determine visible contamination. We also have motorized inspection cameras that allow us to inspect the ductwork.

How do you remove moisture in hard to reach areas?

The drying process is a significant step in restoration. Our technicians can remove the water using portable pumps. We can then use structural cavity drying equipment that helps us to direct airflow into wall cavities, replacing the moist air with warmer, dry air. The machine increases the surface temperature and lowers the vapor pressure, leading to a high evaporation rate. We can direct air into wall cavities, below cabinets, and other structural cavities by drilling small holes in ceilings, walls, or under the cabinets.

Do I have to worry about odors?

If you begin the restoration process quickly, you can minimize the chances of odors persisting in your property. However, if there is an existing odor, we can use various products to combat the smells, including:

  • Odor counteractant beads
  • Thermal foggers
  • Hydroxyl machines 

After a storm strikes, dealing with the aftermath can seem overwhelming. SERVPRO of Southwest Lubbock can take the right steps to stabilize and restore your home to normal. Call us today at (806) 780-6311.

Facts About Flood Damage

7/28/2020 (Permalink)

Rivers, streams, and lakes are almost always overflowing their banks, given a couple of rainy days. 

With only a few inches of water, you can have many hundreds to thousands of dollars’ worth of flood damage in your home or commercial building. A flash flood can often bring a wall of water that is 10 to 15 feet high. New construction in your neighborhood can change runoff patterns in the area and can increase our flood risks. Most insurance plans do not include flood damage, and this must be purchased separately, in most cases. 

Some Other Interesting Facts About Flood Damage 

Prevention Tips:

 The average cost of flood damage is around $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the type of damage and where the water came from, so any tips that can help prevent this has to be worth the time to try them.

  • An inspection and flushing your water heater once a year, by a plumber, can contribute to preventing it bursting on you and flooding the area.
  • Replacing the rubber hoses on all appliances that use water with metal braided ones can help to avoid the failing of the rubber ones as they can get hard and burst. Check all hoses, even the metal braided ones every year. 
  • Leaks from toilets are often indicated by a little leakage from the base. Ask everyone in the family to stand in the bathroom, after flushing and watching for any tell-tale leaks. 
  • Do you know where to locate the main water shut-off? If a pipe burst, inside, you need to be able to get it turned off quickly. 
  • If you have a sump pump, now is a good time to get it checked and think about a backup unit. 
  • Always be looking for signs of plumbing leaks, such as on ceilings and walls; you are looking for stains and moisture on those walls and floors. 
  • Leaking or even broken pipes are often gushing water, and it is not noticed because it might be hidden. Check out your water usage when no faucets are turned on; locate the water meter and take a reading, then use no water for an hour or so and read it again. Has it moved? If so, you have a leak someplace, so get a plumber to check it out. 
  • Always monitor your monthly water bill. If it goes up a lot one billing cycle, you might have the need for a plumber to come in and check all connections. 
  • Since a lot of water comes from inside your home and can damage many walls, floors, furniture and provide the moisture needed for molds to grow, doing whatever can be done to prevent leaks is a good exercise to undertake.

Tips for Cleaning Your Crawlspace After a Flood

Flooded home after a storm

A home flood can occur any time there is a storm. While there are things you can do to protect your home during storm season in Lubbock, TX, floodwater may still get in. It’s important to mitigate the damage not only in the spaces you can see but also in the spaces that are not readily visible. You should always check your crawlspace for flooding after a heavy rain.

Appropriate Safety Precautions

There are several safety precautions to take when you know your home has storm damage. Anyone who enters standing water should wear proper protective gear:

  • Rubber boots
  • Heavy gloves
  • Face mask 
  • Protective coveralls

You should also turn off the electricity to reduce the risk of shock. Use good judgment -- if you think any part of your home may be unsafe, stay elsewhere. Leave wading through floodwater in your crawlspace to the technicians from the flood restoration company that you hire to mitigate the damage.

Accurate Documentation

You should report your home flood to your insurance company, but an adjuster may not be able to make it to your house quickly if there are a lot of problems in the area due to the storm. To capture the most accurate evidence of the damage, it’s a good idea to take pictures or video of the flood’s impact on the crawlspace and other affected areas. This can be valuable when you are filing your claim.

Thorough Cleanup

Ideally, your sump pump will kick in when the water in your crawlspace starts to rise, so that should take care of a lot of the major extraction. The area must be completely dried and disinfected before the job is done, though. A thorough cleanup helps prevent mold growth and the subsequent damage it can cause to the structure of your home. 

Home flood cleanup must cover both the areas you can see and those you cannot see. Don’t forget spaces such as your crawlspace when assessing damage.

How To Prepare Your Business for a Flood.

7/29/2019 (Permalink)

Review your insurance policy and find out what costs your policy will cover prior to a flood.

Flooding can occur with little warning, and if you haven’t prepared, it could be time-consuming to restore your business in Lubbock, TX. Knowing how to prepare your business for a flood can make you feel more confident about handling a disaster of any kind.

1. Backup Important Documents

After a flood, it’s often necessary to access certain documents, and not being able to quickly and easily access what you need when you need can slow down the restoration process. In addition to storing your documents in a water-resistant container that is high off the ground, having extra copies of your documents can also be helpful. Many business owners choose to make electronic copies and paper copies to ensure that important information is not lost.

2. Check Your Insurance Policy

Restoration is often necessary after flooding but having to put a project on hold because of the cost can be a major setback. It can be useful to review your insurance policy and find out what costs your policy will cover prior to a flood. Additionally, knowing what resources are available to business owners in your area after a disaster can give you a better idea of what costs you might be responsible for as the owner of your business.

3. Contact a Mitigation and Restoration Company Before Damage Occurs

If you know that your area is likely to sustain any type of damage from a flood, especially if severe damage such as black water damage is likely, it can be useful to contact flood damage restoration experts before your property is affected. After a disaster, you may feel as if you don’t have the time to research a company. However, by contacting professionals before a flood, you can ask questions without feeling stressed or rushed.

By preparing for flooding, you can help to protect your business from major damage. As you prepare, it can be helpful to backup documents, review your insurance policy and contact a restoration company prior to a flood.

7/3/2018 (Permalink)

This Lubbock home’s basement flooded due to heavy rains.

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall.

There are a number of reasons why your basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Hitting golf balls on the range? Enjoyable. Golf ball sized hail hitting your windows? A disaster. The weather around Lubbock is unpredictable and can sometimes have a devastating impact on your home. Although you can’t stop the weather, we can limit the amount of damage done by violent storms. Here are a few tips for preparing for a storm:

  • Trim the trees, wind could knock down any lose or dead branches
  • Secure the backyard, any furniture or objects left outside should be secured and ready to endure heavy winds
  • Clean the gutters, if gutters stay full they could become clogged and cause water to seep in under the roof
  • If flooding is a concern, move poisons or garden chemicals kept outside to above ground level and that important items inside are kept in a safe place
  • If there’s a large hail warning, consider boarding your windows and staying in the room with least amount of windows

If, even after all these precautions, mother nature still managed to cause a mishap let us take care of it for you. At SERVPRO® of Southwest Lubbock we are open 24/7 and can assess and fix the damage in no time. Like it never even happened!
