Trouble in Houston

10/7/2019 (Permalink)

High floodwater on roads Turn around, don't drown! This much water can sweep away your car with ease.

60 inches of rain can put almost anything underwater! During tropical storm Imelda, the city of Houston, TX experienced severe flooding. SERVPRO of Highland Village sent a storm team down to provide some relief in the area, where we saw extensive damage. We were almost unable to make it past several roads because the water was too high, even a few days after the water had started to recede.

Toxic Water

Unfortunately, flood water of any kind is classified as "category 3," and considered to be toxic. Anything the water touched should be removed and disposed of as quickly as possible. For one home in the area, this meant removing all cabinets, carpet, wood flooring, doors, and more. We also performed flood-cuts 18 inches above the baseboards, which entails removing any drywall that had absorbed the contaminated water. 


It is important to clear the property of any moisture as quickly as possible in an attempt to hinder the chance of mold growth. SERVPRO of Highland Village works fast to mitigate in order to decrease the chances of further damage or contamination spreading.
