High Flood Waters

This Central Texas home was in an area of severe flooding so when SERVPRO® of Greater Waco was called to help, we had our work cut out for us. We routinely cut the walls to remove the wet drywall and insulation where the water has risen to highest level and as you can see in the picture, the water levels rose pretty high when it flooded this home. All of the affected drywall, insulation, flooring and unsalvageable items had to be removed due to having come in contact with the floodwater. Once demolition was complete, the areas were then thoroughly sprayed with an anti-microbial to deter mold growth.

Leaky Roof, Drippy Ceiling

This is the ceiling of a Waco home after a sneaky leak revealed the damage it had been slowly making when no one was looking. Small leaks in the roof can seem like a harmful nuisance at first but if not quickly dried and remedied, it can lead to bigger problems like ceiling collapse, mold growth and unstable flooring. In this case we had to remove all affected material including drywall, insulation and wallpaper. We also applied an anti-microbial spray to all affected areas to discourage mold growth. We made sure to have this home dried, cleaned and prepped for further repairs “Like it never even happened.”

The aftermath of Hardwoods affected by a flood

This home was flooded with less than 6 inches of water from a rising river. For SERVPRO® of Greater Waco to ensure the home would be safe for the homeowner, all the hardwood flooring plus 1 foot up the wall had to be removed. Flood water is Category 3 water, which is grossly contaminated, and it contains a myriad of harmful contaminants. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco takes pride in restoring homes so that they are safe to be rebuilt and occupied once again. While floods are devastating, having SERVPRO® of Greater Waco on their side is the peace of mind a homeowner needs.

Rising Water has can have many affects on a home

This home was affected by almost 3 feet of flood water. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco removed all wet porous material 2 feet above the water line. While the demo in the home was substantial, SERVPRO® of Greater Waco did not have to remove every bit of sheet rock in the home. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco takes great pride in doing a job right, and this job did not require that all the sheetrock be removed. A flood cut was made and everything below that line was removed, the remaining structure sanitized and properly dried out.

8ft of water!

This home was affected by 8 feet of rising water. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco removed all porous materials down to the studs, sanitized the studs with an antimicrobial spray, and dried the structure to be ready for reconstruction.

Colorado River Flooding in Kingsland, Texas

SERVPRO® of Greater Waco had the privilege of assisting those affected by the Colorado River flooding near Kingsland, Texas.  Flood work is both a physically taxing task and a rewarding adventure. While the work is incredibly strenuous, this is when our technicians earn the title “SERVPRO® Heroes.”  In this photo we completed a 4ft flood cut in a home that took on 3ft of water, we sanitized the remaining structure, and dried out the structure so it can be rebuilt. SERVPRO® of Greater Waco worked with FEMA and their NFIP coverages on several jobs while helping flood victims recover their homes.
