Disaster Readiness, Response and Recovery
Accidents happen everyday and if you are not prepared for it, accidents can turn into disasters. If you have a plan made for emergency situations, it will help you to respond quickly reducing the damages that can occur.
The house pictured had an emergency due to a rodent smoke bomb set off under the porch. Something went wrong and a fire started. SERVPRO came prepared to clean it up with our Certified Technicians and Solutions. The crew assessed all damages as a result of the accidental fire. We then properly cleaned all the affected areas being cautious to avoid cross contamination to non-affected areas.
