SERVPRO mobilizes to cleanup winter storm damage in southern states
Last week, many Texans faced unprecedented freezing temperatures and loss of water & electricity during an extreme winter storm that caused $18 billion in damages. Homeowners, businesses and even hospitals in the South were unprepared to deal with the freezing temperatures. As temperatures warm up again, some Texans are now facing burst pipes, flooding, and structure damage. In fact, the President has declared 77 Texas counties eligible for federal disaster relief through FEMA.
When a major natural disaster like this occurs, large numbers of customers are in need of storm damage services at the same time. It is also critical to start the restoration process immediately with qualified experts, especially when dealing with burst pipes and flooding. In hot climates like Texas and here in Florida, unmitigated water damage can quickly lead to other problems such as mold growth.
In times of tragedy and disaster, you can always look for the helpers. While SERVPRO locations are independently owned and operated, they are part of the national SERVPRO franchise network and have the resources to mobilize quickly when disaster strikes. Unlike standalone restoration companies who may be overwhelmed with calls, SERVPRO has branches around the US that volunteer to send their trained crews and equipment to help customers as quickly as possible.
The SERVPRO Storm Team has been activated and over 80 crews from outside the local area have already deployed to provide much needed help in Texas and other southern states. When disaster strikes, you can count on the professionals at SERVPRO to properly clean up storm damage whether it’s from hurricanes, flooding, or a historic winter snowstorm. We know recovering from storm damage is stressful, but we are ready to make it "Like it never even happened."
