Richardson Flood Remediation and Storm Damage Services
Texas weather keeps meteorologists busy. When weather warnings are issued, they often include a flash flooding advisory to let us know that torrential rain is coming.
A downpour from a Texas storm drops many gallons of water in a short window of time. When the influx of floodwater has no place to go, it ends up where it does not belong - inside our homes and businesses.
Storms come on suddenly and it’s hard to predict how much damage will be left in its wake. Because storms don’t happen every day, they tend to catch homeowners and business owners off guard. However, SERVPRO is always prepared for a major weather event in Richardson with a team ready to respond with flood recovery and storm damage clean up.

What You Need to Know About Storm Damage
If being knee-deep in water wasn't bad enough, the force of rushing water damages plumbing and wastewater lines that create an even bigger mess that is potentially toxic. Flooding may bring contaminated water into your home or business.
SERVPRO assesses flood damage on a scale of water contamination. This determines whether or not the home or business carries the risk for toxin exposure when contaminated water penetrates the walls or flooring.
Category 1: "Clean Water"
This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.
- Water from a clean source like a broken water line.
- If left untreated can degrade into category 2 or 3.
Category 2: "Gray Water"
This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.
- May contain bacteria and viruses.
- Can quickly degrade into category 3 if left untreated.
Category 3: "Black Water"
This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.
- May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes.
- Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup.
Blackwater happens when clean water mixes with wastewater containing any of the following: sewage, human waste, garbage, motor oil, fertilizer, etc.
Severe flooding causes extensive damage, and the solution is usually more complex than just letting it dry out with time. The aftermath of storm damage can be overwhelming but an experienced storm recovery cleaning company like SERVPRO knows from experience how to handle it all.
It’s extremely important to remove all floodwater from your home or business to remove toxins and prevent mold growth. SERVPRO uses professional water extraction equipment to ensure that any contaminated water is eradicated, but also to remove clean water and prevent the growth of mold from flood damage.
Water Damage vs Storm Damage
You might assume that all damage caused by a single storm event would fall under the same category (including water damage). It may come as a surprise when your insurance company tells you that not all types of damage qualify under the terms of the policy. This could complicate your claims process or lead to a denial of coverage.
SERVPRO works directly with the insurance company on the property owner’s behalf to move the claims process along. With our extensive experience in working with insurance companies, we know the process well and know how to get it done more efficiently. We’ll even handle the paperwork.
