Storm Damage in the Plainview Area

This Photo illustrates the method of using "flood cuts" to remove ruined drywall material after a storm soaked this Plainview home. The contaminated Black Water rendered the building components hazardous plus the removal quickened the drying process, thereby mitigating secondary water damage. Notice that we left the baseboard heating intact as we strive to restore rather than replace whenever possible.

After a Storm Flooding in Plainview Your Home Must be Sanitized

Ground water flooding from a storm can bring microbes and harmful chemicals into your Plainview home. Proper personal protective equipment must be worn, and non-porous surfaces must be cleaned to restore a sanitary living environment.  "Sanitary" is a level of clean that can be described by the following:

  • Enough soils and contaminates removed to protect general health.
  • A ‘clean’ environment is sanitary.
  • Cleaning must always achieve at least a sanitary level.
  • Requires extraction & containment of soils.
  • Requires right cleaning agents.

Hurricane season is just around the corner

Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) today May 24, 2018 released their forecast for this year's Atlantic hurricane season, predicting a near normal or above normal season. What does that mean? 

Well.... The forecasters predict a 70 percent likelihood of 10 to 16 named storms with winds of 39 mph or higher.

Of those named storms, the forecasters predict five to nine could become hurricanes, including one to four major ones.

Hurricanes have winds of 74 mph or higher and major hurricanes are considered to be at least Category 3.

An average hurricane season brings 12 named storms, of which six become hurricanes.

  • Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
  • Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning and dripping.
  • Always use a candle-holder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy, and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
