If you remember the age before mobile phones, you probably also remember a time when waiting for things was normal. If someone was traveling to meet you at home, they’d call you when they left, and then you probably wouldn’t hear from them again until they arrived—and that was standard procedure!

These days we expect instant gratification in just about every area, and we definitely aren’t accustomed to waiting anymore. And there are also some things for which waiting shouldn’t even be an issue, like sudden damage to your home or business.

That’s why you never have to wait on SERVPRO when there’s an emergency—we know that waiting only leads to more issues, so we’re available any time, day or night.

After a fire. Your home will sustain immediate damage to its structure, walls and floors, but it will also be covered in microparticles of soot, which is both sticky and tiny, and which becomes entrenched in carpets in mere minutes and starts corroding other materials right away.

In a matter of hours, soot causes irreparable staining and ruination of walls, ceilings and furniture, and the longer you have to wait for service, the worse it gets. Not to mention the smoke smell that becomes embedded in your home, and water damage that occurs from fire department hoses and sprinkler systems.

After water damage. The clock is ticking: You have 48 hours, maybe less, before mold starts to grow in your soaked home. Mold is a threat to your health and breathing, and if untreated, it can even eat away your walls and weaken framing. This must be dealt with right away to avoid putting yourself and your home at risk.

And aside from these examples, you may experience emergencies related to weather or natural disaster, which can create immediate, massive needs in your home or business. Why should you have to wait to get help?

You can rest easy, knowing that if something arises you can call SERVPRO for 24-hour emergency help. We don’t simply say we’re Faster to Any Size Disaster, we prove it by being ready anytime you call.

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.
