Crews from SERVPRO of Prattville raced to Houston, joining a compliment from our branch offices at Montgomery and North Lilburn Georgia, in the effort to aid the people of Houston displaced by the city's worst recorded flooding in 200 years! Restoring a home that has been flooded by grossly contaminated stormwater requires unique equipment, products, and technical training. The equipment you see in the photo above is designed to liberate moisture trapped even in dense materials such as concrete, structural wood, and hardwood flooring by hot air circulation, and then removing it from the premises with powerful dehumidifiers. During the five days we were there, we were able to restore the homes of about 50 families in the Houston area, but without the expert assistance of employees like Greg Gasz, our Large Loss Resource Coordinator, it wouldn't have been possible. A special thanks to the crew members who volunteered to spend five days and nights away from family.
