Flash Flood in Sugar Land

The saying goes "April showers bring May flowers", however, there have not been a lot of showers this past April.  It does not hurt to be prepared for storms though.  Heavy rain storms can cause flash floods which can be tremendously dangerous.  Flash floods can occur with little or no warning and can become deep and fierce very quickly.  These waters move with great strength at fast speeds.  Because of this, they can cause extensive damage, destroying buildings and uprooting trees.  In addition, flash floods typically occur as the result of large or intense storms such as hurricanes where massive amounts of rain are released in a brief period of time. 

Follow your local news source for up-to-date information on weather situations and pay close attention to their warnings. SERVPRO of Sugar Land is here for you! Give us a call for your storm damage needs!

Spring Cleaning Tips

Now that it’s spring, it’s time to do something about the winter clutter that has been building up in your home over the winter months. Decluttering your home can help the transitioning into warmer weather easier and the lifestyle you want. Add a little freshness to your home by trying these ideas to jump-start the spring cleaning! 

  • Start with a schedule: Review your home, and make a list of what is needed. Then you can prioritize and schedule your cleaning to keep from being overwhelmed.
  • Create a checklist: Create a plan of action. Take an area and break it down into sections. Create different tasks that need to be done around the house
  • Organize and pace yourself:  A really good deep spring cleaning should take more than a day. Set aside a weekend to steadily get the major chores done. An average amount of time to clean an area can take about 2-6 hours.
  • Work from the top down:  Start from the top and work your way down. When you begin dusting a room, it would only make sense to start at the top and work your way down. By starting from the top, you will be able to save more time and energy instead of having to repeat the task at hand.
  • Read Instructions: Read the labels on the product you are using.  Be sure to follow the directions to avoid any recommended materials to use or supplies before using the item and be sure not to mix any hazardous cleaning agents together (example: do not mix bleach and ammonia together)
  • Keep up rather than catch up: To make your future spring cleaning easier on you, create a monthly checklist of a task to do. Break it up into rooms or sections followed by a flexible schedule to get these chores accomplished.

SERVPRO of Sugar Land is a team of specialists, trained in cleanup and care for your home. We are always here to help make it “Like it never even happened.” Give our team a call today if you experience any water or fire damage at (281) 313-1338.

When Is It Time To Replace A Hot Water Heater?

3/10/2022 (Permalink)

When was the last time you changed your hot water heater?  Has it been a while?  It’s one of those appliances that may be remained unseen or hidden away in the attic.  However, it’s important to make sure to keep up regular maintenance for many reasons.  Homeowners can wake up in the middle of the night or even come home to water all over their homes.  Depending on the size, it can possibly leave up to 50+ gallons of water.   Below are a few telling signs that it may be time to change out the hot water heater in your home.

  • Typically, a gas hot water heater can last about 8 to 12 years, while an electric model will last slightly longer from about 10 to 15 years. If your water heater is getting up in years, it may be time to replace it before it breaks
  • If a puddle surrounds the base of the hot water heater, it is important to take action immediately
  • If there is no hot water while using the tap, this may be an indicator it’s time to get the hot water heater checked
  • Signs of tinted water coming from your hot water tap means there may be rust in the hot water heater, which may show possible aging and a signal of an oncoming leak
  • Gurgling or popping noises coming from your water heater are caused by the buildup of hard water sediment heating up and exploding inside your water heater tank

It is always good to be prepared, because disasters may strike when we least expect them.  SERVPRO of Northeast San Antonio is dedicated to helping you when disaster strikes.  Give our trained professionals a call if you ever experience any kind of water damage.
