I NEED TOOLS

BAYOUCITYRELIEF

There are supplies and tools that are essential in helping clean-up and demo a property after flooding. You will want to use wet vacs, squeegees, dehumidifiers and fans to remove the moisture as soon as possible after water recedes. You will need crow bars to remove base boards, wood flooring and cabinets. You'll want carpet knives to remove wet carpet. You'll need a drywall saw to cut your sheetrock about one foot above the water line. It's also good to apply a mold removal and prevention spray after removing these items. You'll need plenty of heavy duty trash bags to haul trash and debris. Be safety conscious, so always wear a mask for dust and mold, along with safety goggles and work gloves.

We have received donations of many of these items and can provide a Clean Up and Demo Tools Kit upon request. In order to receive these items, please fill out the Work Request below and indicate if you would like to pick up the supplies or need them delivered.

I NEED A CREW

BAYOUCITYRELIEF

There are volunteers from Houston and across the nation who are helping provide clean-up and demo after the flood. Crews arrive at your property and provide debris removal, carpet removal, cut out and remove wet sheetrock, and provide some mold remediation and prevention. They will bring all the supplies and tools for the job. Currently there are an enormous number of relief requests so sending crews can take several days. In the interim, it is suggested that you begin the work if possible using the tools and resources in the FAQ Section.
