The Houston, TX area is vulnerable to severe weather including thunderstorms, high winds, heavy rain, and hail, but there are two types of storms that have a history of causing major trouble for Houston area residents; hurricanes and tornadoes. The devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey reminded us just how damaging these storms can be and how important it is to engage in recovery efforts immediately after the storm. The Houston area is also vulnerable to tornadoes which can cause very serious property damage very quickly. For both these types of storms, it is important for Houston area residents to have their homes prepared before a storm hits and be ready to take action immediately after the storm.

ServiceMaster Restoration & Cleaning provides hurricane and tornado damage repair services in Houston, TX to help homes and businesses recover from the aftermath of these storms. Our technicians are prepared to deal with major flooding or water damage, as well as repair structural damage to homes and buildings. It is important to call for restoration as soon as possible after a major storm because the damage will get worse until the restoration can take place.
Tornadoes can occur at any time in Texas, but they are most likely to occur during the late spring and early summer. These storms bring devastating winds strong enough to tear homes and buildings apart, lift vehicles, and knock down trees and powerlines. In the aftermath of a tornado, properties are littered with debris including glass, wood, tree branches, and even downed powerlines. Walking through the debris can be dangerous, especially if there are downed powerlines that may still be active.

As Hurricane Harvey showed us, the Houston area can get hit by a hurricane that causes massive flooding and extensive damage. While hurricanes have strong winds that can damage homes and buildings, the biggest problems are caused by the flooding. Hurricanes dump a lot of rain in a short period of time that causes massive flooding over a large area. The flood water is not only extremely damaging to homes and buildings, but also dangerous as it may contain harmful toxins and microorganisms from sewage as well as debris that can cause injuries.
ServiceMaster Restoration & Cleaning can help with the restoration effort after a hurricane by cleaning up flooding and repairing homes and buildings that have sustained serious water damage or structural damage. You can expect the following when you call ServiceMaster Restoration & Cleaning after a hurricane:
- Water Damage Restoration: We are equipped to remove standing water from homes and businesses and thoroughly dry the affected objects and materials. Once the water extraction and drying process is done, we will restore, clean, and sanitize the affected areas to return them to their previous condition. It is very important to react to flooding right away because the damage from flooding will get worse and lead to further issues like severe structural damage or mold growth.
- Board Ups and Tarping: Like with tornadoes, hurricanes can cause serious exterior damage to homes and buildings with strong wind. We will board up heavily damaged buildings to secure their structural core and provide tarping if necessary to cover damaged roofs.
- Reconstruction: Our technicians can handle the reconstruction of major structural damage from start to finish to get your home or building back to its pre-disaster state. We will also clear your property of any debris.
