Why you should know that Flagler disasters are safe in the hands of SERVPRO
SERVPRO has been providing restoration and cleaning services for more than 50 years and has an operational footprint that stretches across the entire country. What began as a modest painting business in 1967 has grown into one of the largest restoration service providers in the nation. SERVPRO now has more than 2,000 branch locations equipped to assist both residential and commercial interests. Although SERVPRO is not a Fortune 500 company, it has been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 ranking of the best franchise opportunities in the nation. In fact, SERVPRO has earned the magazine’s top spot for cleaning and restoration franchises for 19 straight years.
SERVPRO offers cleanup and restoration services to address water, fire, and smoke damage, and it can provide decontaminating and deep-cleaning services to affected areas of the home. The company also provides mold removal and construction services if needed. In many cases, customers will use SERVPRO to repair damage that is covered under their homeowner's insurance, such as damage caused by storms or kitchen fires. In addition to its residential services, SERVPRO also conducts restoration and cleanup jobs for commercial property owners, which can include specialty cleaning services to address biohazards and viral pathogens.
Homeowners looking for qualified professionals to handle their restoration and cleanup needs may be interested to know that SERVPRO is an approved Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) Training School, providing its employees with ongoing professional training opportunities. That being said, certifications will vary depending on the location, and SERVPRO technicians may not always hold the latest certifications. Homeowners may want to check local SERVPRO restoration reviews from former customers or contact their nearest SERVPRO branch to check the certification status of a particular location.
How It Works
Although there are many SERVPRO cleaning services available, many customers will find themselves turning to the company in an emergency situation where time is of the essence. For instance, homeowners who have standing water in their home due to a failed sump pump or water leak may require swift remediation to prevent mold from building up in their home’s walls and flooring. Homeowners may also want to quickly repair fire damage to remove smoke odors and soot as well as get rid of any damaged materials so they can rebuild as soon as possible. In these scenarios, homeowners can call the local SERVPRO of Flagler County to set up an inspection of the damaged area and build out a scope of work. The company will send out a technician to conduct an on-site inspection of the customer’s home, taking pictures to document the extent of the damage, measuring floor space to determine how much equipment will be needed, and devising a plan of action based on the level of service the customer requires. After reviewing the affected area and determining the extent of work needed for mitigation, SERVPRO will create a scope with a breakdown of the costs required to remove damaged materials, clean and decontaminate surfaces, and restore the area to its original condition. If homeowners opt to use SERVPRO’s services, they may have the option to pay in full themselves or, if mitigation work is covered under their homeowner's insurance, ask their insurance provider to foot the bill.
