Commercial Flood Damage

Following a catastrophic event, a local retailer suffered flood waters of about 4 feet deep. Notice the silt damage to the carpeting and floor. The after picture is reflective of the final stages of mitigation before repair work was to start. SERVPRO, with the proper resources and knowledge, put the customer's mind at ease and stayed in touch daily about the progress being made on the job.

Drooping Ceiling

If your ceiling begins to drip and you notice it caving in, building a 'T' structure with spare 2 by 4 boards as seen here may provide just enough support to keep it from caving in. 

SERVPRO Tip: Take a screwdriver and create a single hole into the drooping ceiling to release the trapped water. 

Winter Storm Inga

The Winter Storm of 2018 froze many pipes in the Houston area. Most homeowners in Houston had little to no idea on how to protect their property from the bitter chill resulting in their pipes bursting and causing large water damages like the one seen here.

Winter Storm Tip: If there is a Winter advisory in effect leave your faucets dripping and cover your exposed outdoor pipes to prevent a bust.

Hurricane Michael in Florida

There is no job too big or too small for SERVPRO of South Pasadena. When customers were in the need of help after Hurricane Michael, we loaded up and headed to Florida. We will always be there when you need us the most, no matter the distance. We are a phone call away (713) 472-4162.

Loose Window

Buildings that are taller are more exposed to the elements and at a higher risk for wind damage than those closer to the ground. The high up window seen here was loosened enough that water was able to seep through the cracks during a very windy storm.

Check for Wind Damage: Wind damage caused by flying debris can be destructive. Storm damage caused by wind cracks windows, creates holes and damages personal property. Wind damage weakens walls and causes wall slant or cracks, resulting in more repairs. Call our dedicated professionals SERVPRO South Pasadena. We are here to help 24/7. 

Hurricane Force Winds

A common sight here in the Houston area is the scene of palm trees being pushed back by the wind amidst buckets of rain. Hurricane force winds have the ability to push back or even rip shingles from the roof of a home. In more extreme situations, they can even knock over trees, cars, and other loose objects leaving behind devastating damage. This is why it's important to routinely inspect your roofs for water leaks, holes, and missing shingles.

The ROOT of the Problem

Not even the biggest oak trees are a match for mother nature under the right conditions. This large oak tree was uprooted during a heavy windstorm and crashed directly on top of the unlucky residents who were only feet away. Thankfully, no one was injured. One of the many reasons this tree fell was because of its root system. Upon closer inspection you may notice all the roots are very small. It is possible the tree was sick with root rot which is caused when plants sit in moisture for too long. Another reason for the tree falling was due to the supersaturated ground. Recent storms had dumped enough water to turn the soil into a loose, slushy mixture for the root system to grip onto. Once the heavy winds came, the tree had met its fate.

Fallen Branches

One of the greatest hazard during a storm or windy day is flying debris. Large branches, like the one seen here, can fall on your roof and create a sizable hole opening you up your attic to the elements. Older neighborhoods are typically at a higher risk due to the higher number of taller trees. We advise homeowners to trim lose branches and remove dead trees from around their home to prevent damage.
