Recovery from Hurricane Harvey - Important Steps

Below you will find important steps to take post flood as well as phone numbers that may help as you rebuild. 

  • Consult with a licensed electrician regarding electricity in your home. 
  • You must take pictures of the damage to your home. Remember to photograph everything, including serial numbers.
  • Contact your insurance company (Flood, Homeowners, Auto) and the City of Houston to inform them of flooding.
  • Contact FEMA. There are several programs available to Harvey survivors. 
  • The city has begin the trash cleanup process for our neighborhood. Remove all items damaged by water. This includes wood floors, carpets, baseboards, sheetrock (remove 18 inches above the water mark) and any furniture touched by the water. Mold can set into the wet materials within 48 hours.  If space allots, place all belongings which you wish to keep in the backyard.  All remediation debris and trash should be placed between the sidewalk and the street so that the solid waste department can reach it for pick up.  The solid waste department requests that debris is separated into 3 piles for pickup: heavy/junk, electronics, and tree debris. Hazardous waste such as paint and other chemicals will not be picked up and should be taken to the Environmental Service Center at 11500 S. Post Oak Rd. Houston, TX 77035
  • There will be increased mosquitos as well as wildlife attracted to the debris. Please make sure to get plenty of repellant.
