SERVPRO Helps During Storms
Residents in Solano and Yolo Counties have a distinct advantage when it comes to Restoration Services because there is a local SERVPRO franchise that services these counties. SERVPRO of Vacaville/Dixon/ Fairfield/Davis has been providing water, fire and mold restoration services to both residential and commercial customers in these counties for several years. The company has added quite a bit of biohazard remediation work specifically including cleaning for the COVID-19 virus.
As we head into fall and the winter months of the year, naturally our attention turns to the weather and the damage it can cause to our homes and residences. But foul weather isn’t something that is reserved only for the wintertime. In fact, storm events can happen any time of the year throughout different parts of our Country. Whether it be windstorms in the mid-west or flooding along the coast of Florida, there is no telling when Mother Nature will wield her mighty powers and damage can occur in a blink of an eye. In some areas, there are warnings, as with tornadoes or hurricanes, but in others, as is the case of earthquakes that commonly occur along the fault lines that run throughout the state of California, they are swift and without warning and leave behind devastating results.
In the restoration industry, these devastating events are labeled as “Storm Events” and for SERVPRO, there is a specific and coordinated response that is set immediately into place to service the individuals who are affected in the areas where damage has occurred. So while SERVPRO of Vacaville/Dixon/Fairfield/Davis’ first priority is the residents within the communities we immediately serve, we are also part of a broader and coordinated effort of 1,700 franchises across the country that make up an elite Disaster Recovery Team. Just like your local SERVPRO, our Disaster Recovery Team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to your emergency. And our professions are prepared for the unpredictable. Although most of our work involves fire or water restoration, SERVPRO Storm Teams have responded to tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards and floods. On a National Level, SERVPRO crews have aided customers in the following events: 2017 California wildfires, 2017 Hurricane Irma, 2017 Hurricane Harvey, 2016 Hurricane Matthew, 2015 Carolina floods, 2014 Polar Vortex, 2012 Hurricane Sandy, 2010 Nashville floods, 2008 Hurricane Ike, 2007 Chicago floods, 2007 Ohio floods, 2007 California Wildfires and 2005 Hurricane Katrina.
Rest assured, your local and nationwide SERVPRO franchises are always Here To Help.
