SERVPRO of Flagler County is proud to announce its continued partnership with Florida Gators athletics through the 2023-24 athletic season. The new agreement, which includes the teamwork of multiple SERVPRO franchises across the state, is with Florida Gators Sports Properties, LEARFIELD's dedicated team representing the University Athletic Association (UAA).
A leader in the fire, water and bioremediation industry for more than 50 years, SERVPRO becomes the “Official Cleanup and Restoration Company of the Florida Gators.” In addition to use of official Gators’ marks, the SERVPRO brand will be represented at numerous official university athletic platforms, including radio game broadcasts, social media content and in-venue signage.

“We’re pleased to call SERVPRO a member of our corporate partner family,” said Scott Stricklin, Athletics Director at the University of Florida. “We appreciate their ongoing support of the Gators and our athletics programming, and we welcome them back in this exclusive sponsorship category.”
In complete collaboration with UF, LEARFIELD’s Florida Gators Sports Properties team extends the affinity of the Gators’ brand to businesses and corporations of all sizes looking to align with the undeniably loyal and passionate collegiate sports fan base.
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.
SERVPRO provides a wide variety of cleanup and restoration services to homeowners and commercial property owners to help address all kinds of property damage. The core areas that SERVPRO focuses on include:
- Water damage restoration
- Fire damage restoration
- Storm damage mitigation
- Mold remediation and removal
Cleaning services may be included as part of a restoration project, but customers can also contract SERVPRO cleaners separately to take on other jobs. This work may cover:
- Air duct and HVAC cleaning
- Odor removal
- Graffiti removal
- Viral pathogen cleaning

#SERVPRO #Remediation #Local
What Makes Us Different?
The Great Freeze in Texas.
When most people think of the bright green and orange logo that stands for SERVPRO they think of a major corporation rather than your neighbor or a small locally owned business. While we are a part of that large umbrella of SERVPRO we are also your neighbor next door, a local business owner, and friend in the community.
Our business is owner and operated by someone in your community. He is present in many local events such as chambers, ribbon cuttings, and school sports!
Being local in the community means we care about our neighbors, our schools, and events that are happening in our neighborhood!
With all of this being said we also fall under the big SERVPRO umbrella that gives us more resources than a locally owned small business as well.
When a storm is set to hit our area or an area around us other small business franchise owners come down to help us and our local community recover quicker, brining their resources with them so we can help everyone possible. These other franchises coming down means you will get the best possible service because they are all trained at the high level required by SERVPRO to be a technician with our business.
So when you need us most, whether is be for a duct cleaning or a major disaster we are here ready to serve you.
"Like it never even happened."
Big but Little Guys Too
Why should you chose SERVPRO rather than one of the other small remediation companies in the area?
We have gotten some feed back about from potential customers wanting to support local and support local companies. Trust us when we say no one understands that more than us.
Here at SERVPRO we do get to sport the big logo that is recognized nationwide with our company and the green and orange colors. Along with that when a disaster strikes we also get the support of the entire nationwide team as well. Other franchises will travel to make sure everyone in the area that was affected will be taken care of. This allows us to take care of each and every customer that has called in and needs help right away. This is a giant benefit to not only us but also our customers in a disaster time.
On the flip side of that each franchise including ours that is a part of this giant company as a whole is locally owned and operated, the best of both worlds. So when you call us at your local SERVPRO you get the best of both worlds. You get the support of a massive company, while also knowing your money is being kept local to support other community members and their family's.
Your Friendly Neighbor
SERVPRO is locally owned and operated within each franchise. Our friendly office staff, technicians, marketers, and owner are attending the same events and shopping at the same stores as you.
We love to see our clients out in public and always answer any questions when we can.
The friendly faces of our company represent our services and how we take care of your home when an emergency happens.
We are always available to look at any concerns with your home and have a flexible schedule.
We are open 24/7 for emergencies and a live person is always going to answer the phone that works directly for our office. This allows us to get our team out to you as fast as possible to minimize the damage to your home. Our staff is always able to help and answer questions you may have in your time of need.

"Like it never even happened."
Every Last One
SERVPRO is known for having a large travel team, which consists of smaller franchises who come from across the country to wherever help is needed.
We at your local SERVPRO participate in that as well. Having a travel team when a catastrophe hits means a lot more behind the scenes work as well for those that stay at home. Our office staff and other technicians have to make sure our guys on the road are taken care of as well as our customers at home base are taken care of as well. We have a balancing act going on during these times, which we are more than capable of handling.
Throughout the year our technicians undergo strenuous training to make sure they are prepared when the time comes. When our team is onsite we make sure we stay as long as we are needed and help every customer possible.
This process is hard on our team as we never know how long our guys will be gone. Rest assured however, we do not leave until we have helped everyone we possibly can and make it "Like it never even happened."
Part of Your Community
SERVPRO is part of your community. Our staff and owner are always taking part in local events that our neighbors and local businesses are participating in.
We love to do all of the same things you and your family like to do. Recently Palm Coast had a strawberry festival where most of our staff participated in games with their families and took home pallets of strawberries.
Here at SERVPRO we are always here for you, whether that be in an emergency or seeing you at a local event. We participate as much as we can to stay involved in our community.
We like to also participate in local charity events but that has been slightly hard with the restrictions of COVID. When we are able to come out into the community and help with those kinds of things we will be there. We cannot wait to see everyone back out in the community and participating in local events and charities.
Why should you chose our company over the competitors?
Why should you chose our company over the competitors? There are many choices out there for every situation today. However not all companies or services are created equal. Some companies put their staff first, some companies put their business first, and some companies put their customers and employees. first.
We are the last of the three. We put our customers and employees first. SERVPRO believes that by treating our employees the right way and giving them the tools and praise that they deserve that they can offer the best service to our customers.
We put our customers first as well. Without our customers we would not have a business or a community. We are grateful for each and every customer we are able to prove services to.
SERVPRO goes above and beyond for their staff and customers to make sure each and everyone is taken care of how they should be. We respect and appreciate everything they all do.
Why You Should Chose SERVPRO
We know there are many different choices when it comes to restoration and rebuild work in Florida. We want you to know the differences in using us versus those other restoration companies.
SERVPRO is one of the largest restoration companies in the industry. We train all of the technicians, project managers, and office staff on restoration and rebuild protocols. All of our technicians are sent to IICRC training and are certified in water restoration and mold remediation.
With many of the smaller companies they are mom and pop companies who are unable to deal with a larger loss. Some of those companies have a limited number of both supplies and technicians.
SERVPRO is able to get as many resources to you as needed within a very short amount of time. During a catastrophe all of SERVPRO has the resources to have traveling teams to come to the hardest hit areas.
The difference between other companies and us is that we have the knowledge to do your job correctly, the man power to get any size job done, and the equipment available to get the job done.

There are several myths in the industry that tile floor does not absorb water and can be dried out without any after effects. The truth is that both the slab and the tile may absorb water. If not properly dried out weeks or even months down the line a tenting affect may take place in the tile. This is where the tile dries out and expands or contracts and forms a tent. The slab will shrink back down to the original size, however the tile will not shrink but rather stay the same size which could be what causing the tenting effect. There are many other factors that can come into play such as what the tile is made of, what temperate the tile was fired at, the amount of time the tile was fired, and whether the tile was glazed or not. All of this comes into play and will be tale tell signs if the tile will tent or not.
