If a large-scale disaster strikes your area, how long can you afford to wait before you call in the professionals to help?
To homeowners and business owners who have endured a major disaster, every hour without proper mitigation is another potential hour for secondary damages to take their toll. In fact, the first steps taken in a disaster situation can mean the difference between recovery and total loss.
With a nationwide network more than 1,500 franchises strong, the SERVPRO® System strives to be faster to any-sized disaster. The SERVPRO® System is strategically located throughout the United States to be able to mobilize and respond as quickly as possible following a disaster. In recent years, the SERVPRO® Disaster Recovery Team™ has been called on to help lead the charge in the cleanup and restoration of some of the country’s largest disasters.
2010 Tennessee Floods
After more than a foot of rain fell in just over 24 hours, rivers and creeks in Middle Tennessee swelled to record levels. While the rain was still falling, Storm Teams from across the country poured into Nashville, ready to reinforce local SERVPRO® Franchises’ restoration efforts.
2010 New England Floods
Several states in the Northeast endured record rainfall, including Rhode Island, which endured what its governor deemed the worst flooding in more than 200 years. The SERVPRO® System responded by quickly mobilizing and sending hundreds of crews to help.
2009 California Wildfires
During this wildfire and the wildfires of 2008, SERVPRO® Franchises from as far away as Virginia came to help residents and businesses that suffered extensive damage caused by heavy smoke and soot.
2008 Hurricane Ike
Hurricane Ike spread devastation across much of the western portion of the Gulf Coast. SERVPRO® Storm Teams from Texas to New Hampshire converged to help get people’s properties restored as quickly as possible.
2005 Hurricane Katrina
Hurricane Katrina struck the southeastern United States, causing major damage to both property and human life. Within hours of landfall, SERVPRO® crews from all across the U.S. were on the scene to help turn devastation into restoration.
And for the countless other largescale disasters that go unanticipated, disrupt your business, change your life or even reshape an entire community or nation, the SERVPRO® Disaster Recovery Team™ is specially trained, equipped and staffed for whatever could happen. Because after 40 years of making it “Like it never even happened,” it’s what they do better than anyone else.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
