Helping after Hurricane Harvey
The Houston Texas area suffered one of the worst hurricane disasters to occur in American history, Hurricane Harvey. Immediately after the storm hit, SERVPRO began planning to send help to the devastated area. Storm teams from across the country began mobilizing franchises. Our franchise was one of the few to make the important decision to leave home and lend our assistance to Texas. We sent a crew of 6 employees on a 20 plus hour drive. While in Texas, our team completed nearly 10 jobs in a 3 week span. Homes were affected by high Bayou flood waters, some homes nearly seeing 6 feet of water. Due to the bacteria in the water, and the high humidity of Texas, mold development was a major issue. Luckily, our crew was able to remove material, clean, and dry out the affected homes. The event is something our SERVPRO will not soon forget, but we are grateful and proud that we had the opportunity to lend our assistance to Texas and families affected by the disaster.
