There’s No Time to Wait When You Have an Emergency

Imagine, if you will, a scenario. Back in the prehistoric age (aka before the internet), if you wanted to read a book that wasn’t on your shelf at home, you had to go to a place called the library, where they kept lots of books.

Instead of being able to instantly read whatever you want on your phone or tablet, you had to get dressed, drive downtown, browse through some weird card system that was somehow a combination of boredom and math, and then find your book (hopefully) on the proper aisle. And there was a chance it might just be gone. You could try again in two weeks.

Waiting for something you want is annoying. Waiting for something you need is potentially dangerous.

When disaster strikes at home, there’s no time to wait, because waiting means further and worsened damage. That’s why SERVPRO is always right on the other side of this screen—24 hours a day, seven days a week for emergency services.

After a fire. Waiting to deal with a fire means you have to contend with more than burned wood and possessions. It also means you have to manage the effects of soot, the resulting sludge that covers your walls and belongings after incomplete combustion during the fire. In only minutes, soot attaches to carpets, drywall and other surfaces, and only a few hours later, its stains, along with the smell of smoke, become permanent.

After water damage. Water damage is gutting—it soaks whatever it touches, bringing instant degradation to all manner of things. But you have a window of about 48 hours to eliminate the water and extract the moisture from affected areas before mold also becomes a problem. Having to wait for service means giving mold a head-start, and for your sake and the sake of your home, that can’t happen.

Additionally, your home could incur sudden damage from things like natural disasters, storms and more, and those things certainly aren’t working a 9-to-5 schedule. When something happens, you need help right away. And you can trust SERVPRO to be at the ready. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster not only in slogan, but in function.

When you need help after a home or business disaster, fast service is a priority, and there’s nobody faster or more prepared than SERVPRO. Call us anytime to take advantage of our 24-hour emergency service.
