Water Damage

Flash flooding happens in the blink of an eye. Whether it be an inch or a foot of water, any water damage at all can produce a serious impact. In fact, floods cause more than $10 billion in damages nationwide every year.

If you own your own home or are a business owner, unexpected flooding problems can cause major headaches to your family and your business. Thankfully, SERVPRO has the tools you need to tackle the damages and help you get back on track. We will help you understand the extent of the damage so you are able to take the proper steps towards full restoration.

We have the skills and tools to detect moisture and dry up standing water quickly. We also can assist you in developing a water damage restoration plan to ensure your home stays clean, dry and is restored to its preloss condition.

Fire Damage

A fire department in the United States responds to a fire every 23 seconds, and there was roughly $8.1 billion in direct property damage and losses nationwide in 2020.

If your home or business has sustained fire damage, we’ll jump right into action with our seven-step restoration process.

This process is a very thorough, step-by-step procedure to make sure we assess and understand the extent of the damage to help return your space back to its original condition.

Storm Damage

Storms can wreak havoc on our homes, especially when you aren’t expecting the severity or location of the damage. Our goal is to always be there for you and to help you bring your home back to its pre-storm condition as soon as possible.

With tornado season looming here in Texas, it is more important than ever to have a plan in place in case of a weather emergency. If a major storm hits Allen and overwhelms local resources, we have access to equipment and other materials from our other 1,950 locations to ensure a quick and reliable response to your needs.

Storm and water damage can damage the structure of your home, but storms can also damage personal belongings and possessions. SERVPRO specializes in content restoration, with the mindset of restoring rather than replacing. Your family heirlooms and fine furniture are important to us as well!

Disasters come in all shapes and size—there is no one size fits all! Whether you’ve experienced a tornado, severe thunderstorm, fire or a flood, odds are you’re going to need the services of a restoration company.

When the time comes, you’re going to need to act quickly to decide who is going to be your restoration partner.

There are some vital questions you need to ask when looking for a service and restoration company:

Are They Trustworthy?

Sadly, not everyone who shows up after a disaster is here to help. Disasters bring out scammers, and all they want is a quick buck without having to do the work. Local contractors with ties to the community are in it for the long haul.

We’ve been around the block, so to speak. We’re part of a national company that has been in business for over 50 years, and we’ve been helping people that entire time. We have millions of satisfied customers to prove it.

Moreover, national brands like the PGA Tour trust us to get their facilities and tour stops and restored should a disaster strike an event.

How Fast Can They Get to Me?

Speed is important during an emergency. You’ve got to reach someone right away, and they should have the resources to respond to your needs immediately. Especially if it’s a large local disaster.

When a storm rips through town and creates a mess, we’re on call 24 hours a day to respond to your restoration needs.

Is a Fleet Available If Local Resources Can’t Handle It?

SERVPRO of Allen is locally owned and operated, which means there’s always a team right here in Allen ready to act. But if there is a surge of activity at hand, your local franchise is backed by the full, nationwide network of SERVPRO franchises.

We’re experts at sending disaster response teams from across the region to support a franchisee that is experiencing significant demand. This ensures every homeowner gets the attention they deserve.

When you call SERVPRO, you can rest easy knowing you’ve got the trusted leader in the restoration industry on the other end of the line. When disaster hits home, contact us to get our local experts and nationwide network on your side.

Why SERVPRO®? Our Tech Is Tops. | SERVPRO® of Allen

12/18/2020 (Permalink)

When you picture after-storm clean-up, something like this might come to mind: a mop and a bucket. A big dumpster full of torn-out drywall. A bunch of fans pointing at a wet carpet.

Those may all be part of the picture, but they’re only a part. At SERVPRO, our cleaning and restoration services are powered by advanced technology.

Let’s Talk Water

When it comes to water removal, SERVPRO uses several technologies to detect and extract water, then dry the remaining structures and their contents.

Moisture Meters. At SERVPRO, we deploy moisture-detection devices to “see” moisture that may be hiding in the wall, under the floor or elsewhere. A hygrometer can detect humidity in a room, leading us to make a deeper investigation. Infrared devices point our technicians toward problem areas using the principle that wet materials tend to be cooler than dry ones.

Drying Out. For removing water, SERVPRO uses a variety of drying-out equipment, including industrial-grade fans and dehumidifiers. The speedy air movement handily removes moisture from the air and pulls it from substances, protecting them before they’re overly damaged.

Clean Chemistry

When it comes to removing odors—and the microbes and other substances that cause them—SERVPRO again invests in technology that’s proven effective.

First, machines remove airborne contaminants such as mold spores or particulate matter from smoke. Next, we apply OSHA-approved products to destroy germs and contaminants. Our products are EPA-certified against harmful bacteria, fungi, molds and—most recently—COVID-19.

New advances are constantly being made in restoration technology. At SERVPRO, we invest in keeping up with the trends. But even though we use the latest cleaning technology, we do stick with one old-fashioned principle: When we restore and clean your home or business, we keep your health and satisfaction front of mind.

From emergency cleaning and restoration to routine disinfection, we’re there for you. Contact us at any hour for assistance.
