Spring Storms in Texas
Spring is coming... and Texans know that means storms are coming, too! Whether it was surface water flooding that invaded your dwelling or damage to your roof or siding, your home or business could be permanently damaged if it hasn’t been properly restored.
During a storm the ground can become so saturated that it loses its ability to drain all the water. When this happens, dirt, lawn clippings, litter, animal feces, etc, will start to mix with the water. Whether it is still water or flowing water, these items will contaminate the water so that it becomes a health concern due to the diseases it can carry. It is important that any surface water be extracted from your home or office as quickly as possible.
Hail or high winds can cause severe damage to roofing materials, siding, stucco, windows, and doors, allowing rain to enter your home or business and cause damage. The resulting moisture causes damage to the structure, and if it’s not properly dried, the structure might develop another problem: mold. Mold starts growing in 48-72 hours, so time is of the essence to extract water, remove wet materials and dry out the building to reduce damage and lower the cost to repair.
