Ike Church Cleanup

with one comment

Yesterday after Ike’s departure, Susan and I went up the street to the Lutheran church where she works. Since the minister had evacuated to Austin, we were the first ones in to check the place out for damage beyond the obvious – Ike’s wind had taken the steeple down.

Since the church was included with us as one of the lucky few to have power restored already, we returned today to help out by getting most of the water up off the carpet in the church sanctuary, putting my trusty steam cleaner to task. Best as I can estimate, I managed to get over 50 gallons of some rather unholy water up, converting long stretches of carpet from very squishy to barely damp. We expect they’ll probably still need to rip up this carpet to replace it, but getting this water up and out still helped them start their cleanup.

And gave me some well-needed exercise!
