Floods are the most common hazards in the United States.  Whether you live and work on a coastline, along with city streets, in a basin, near a river, or even in the desert, there is a potential for suffering flood damage. 

What FEMA suggests you can do now:

  • Have qualified professionals to evaluate the furnace, water heater and electric panel if susceptible
  • Install “check valves” in sewer traps a prevent flood water from backing up into the drains of your home
  • Seal walls in basements with waterproofing compounds to avoid seepage.

What FEMA suggests when a flood is imminent:

  • Move essential or unreplaceable items to an upper floor, when possible
  • Turn off utilities at the main switches if instructed to do so
  • Disconnect electrical appliances. Do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing in water

If a flood does strike your business or home, give SERVPRO of Sugar Land a call.  Even minor floods have the potential to cause major damage to a structure, and the cleanup is often an overwhelming and daunting task.  SERVPRO of Sugar Land has the tools and equipment to help you during a traumatic time.

Mother Nature has the ability to cause extensive and expensive damage to your home or business as some of us may have experience from the winter storm back in February.

Here are a few tips to prevent storm damage to your property

  • CLEAN THE GUTTERS down sprouts can be clogged by dead leaves or branches.  Consider cleaning the gutters twice a year.
  • Inspect your roofs – give the roof a good look for any loose or missing shingles. If there are damages spotted it is encouraged to get this addressed and fixed immediately.  By taking immediate action, this will help prevent further damage such as future water or mold damages.
  • Check the trees on your property – tree decay, soil erosion, heavy rains, and windstorm can cause a tree to fall.  By keeping an eye out for these signs and help pruning trees can avoid possible future damage.

Does Your Sugar Land Home Have A Mold Problem?

6/28/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO employee working Give the experts a call today - (281) 313-1338!

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all molds from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all molds, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  •  Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  •  Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

If you see any signs of mold, call SERVPRO of Sugar Land Today - (281) 313-1338

Summer Vacation? Protect your Sugar Land Home

SERVPRO employee working here to help No matter how big or small the damage is, SERVPRO of Sugar Land is always here to help!

Summer break has just begun and what better time than now to take a vacation!  Summertime is the prime time to travel and a survey shows about one-third of American families are taking the opportunity this summer to go on a summer vacation (pre-COVID 19).  But in case of an unexpected disaster, be sure to have your home prepared.   Below is a list of things to do to make sure your home is secure when you're off spending time with your family on vacation.


Make arrangements with an Emergency Contact: 

  • Close friend or neighbor 
  • Provide emergency contact
  • Turn on porch lights
  • Collect mail - burglars look for home's with overflowing mail

Protecting your Home:

  • Consider getting motion sensor lights, this way, if anyone gets too close to your home, lights will automatically turn on. 
  • Purchasing an electric timer may be helpful for your home.  This allows you to save energy and keep your electricity bill cost lower. 
  • Keep watch, use the emergency contact above to keep an eye on your home, and check it each day to make sure everything is okay. 
  • A security system is one of the best ways to protect your home while on vacation

Taking Additional Precautions:

  • Shut off gas and water at the meter, supply tank, or appliance
  • Turn off all water valves to any appliance with a waterline 
  • Unplug all electronics to prevent any electrical shortages
  • Make sure smoke detectors working properly before leaving
  • Adjust your thermostats to 75-82 degrees, this will help control air usage.
  • Be careful what you say.  Leaving for vacation is exciting but saying too much may create your home as a target for invasion.  Resist the temptation to broadcast your vacation on social media - tell your friends after you return.
  • Tell your alarm company- alert the company you will be out of town, especially on an extended trip.
  • Lock everything down and secure valuables.



Don't let your summer vacation turn into a water staycation.  If an unexpected water event or disaster happens, you know who to call.  Give the trusted professionals at SERVPRO of Sugar Land a call!
