Ensure You are Protected
When a home experiences a fire, the damage to the building and personal belongings can be devastating and could displace a family with nearly nothing but the clothes on their backs for quite a long time. Even areas unaffected by the fire directly can be permanently damaged, for example the higher floors of a building on fire may not be directly affected by the flames but the rising soot and smoke can very severely damage structures and belongings to a point where they have to be completely replaced. Suffering the material loss is bad enough but if a home or family does not have the proper homeowners and renters insurance, the family can end up at a massive loss if not properly covered and reimbursed. If you rent a home it’s highly recommended that you get renters insurance and if you are a homeowner it’s best to make sure that your insurance will cover any potential loss. Another factor to consider is what the area you live or own property in is susceptible to, such as California being prone to wildfire.
As you may have heard recently, a tragic series of wildfires has erupted on the eastern coastal regions of Australia. As the fire is still ongoing at this point in time we don’t know the extent of the damage just yet but we know that it has affected multiple millions of acres of land including many cities and towns that have been damaged and cut off from access. The Navy was even deployed to rescue people from coastal towns which had been blocked in by the fires. It has also been reported that the fires have destroyed a huge swath of animal habitats and killed nearly half a billion animals. We from SERVPRO send our best hopes to those affected by the fires in Australia.

Protect Your Property
Are you a business owner? Do you own properties or buildings that house either your offices or multiple franchises? If this is the case then you may have unfortunately already encountered issues such as fire damage, water damage, mold infestations, bio-hazards, etc… These occurrences are quite common throughout a building’s lifetime, but the truth is that these occurrences can cause huge damage to the livelihoods of those affected, causing massive halts and delays to business, which in turn causes shortages in revenue and profit. To help our community of local and worldwide businesses SERVPRO is always at the ready to help you your life back on track. Even if your property has not had a history of issues and you worry for the safety of your business or property, SERVPRO can help by helping you prepare an E.R.P. or emergency ready plan which will ensure you are protected for the future.
The Complexity of Water
Water is an interesting substance, as it is vital to life on earth and important to almost every living organism on our planet, and on the other hand it can be one of the most terrifying forces in the form of torrential downpours and tsunamis. Water is a force of nature and it can damage, that’s why SERVPRO is always at the ready in any case of emergency to help you and your property, whatever the scenario may be. Water damage is complex; even a small drip left for a time inside the walls of a building could soak all the surrounding walls, causing direct damage to the material and acting as a catalyst to mold growth throughout the whole building. SERVPRO is constantly at the ready to help anyone we can with these types of issues, this is why we serve 24/7, 365 days a year.
Protect Your Roof
This is a friendly reminder to make sure you don’t have a leaky roof! Remember, a small leak in the roof of your building can lead to huge problems for your whole building. The tiny amounts of water that seep through a roof can do many things such as rot wood, destroy drywall, and flood your home or property. There are many measures you can take to ensure that a leaky roof is not the downfall of your property. The first is quite simple, just make sure that your roof is not damaged and keep it well maintained. The second is a more extreme measure but there are many materials that you can lay the roof of your home or property with that will waterproof and weatherproof your roof. If all else fails, SERVPRO is always ready to help with any type of water problems that come your way. Just give us a call!
