We Can Respond Fast to Your Disaster | SERVPRO® of East Brownsville & South Padre Island
If you are faced with a huge cleanup after disaster strikes your home or business, time becomes an especially precious commodity. Since it is your home or livelihood on the line, you don’t have the benefit of waiting for help—you need it right away.
We know that a fast response is very important, which is why responding faster to any size disaster is more than just a slogan to us.
When it’s your belongings or business on the line, you do not have the luxury of time when it comes to disaster cleanup. This is especially true when water damage has come into play, which can happen from various events such as flooding, appliance and/or plumbing failures, storm damage and fire damage, as water is used to put out the fires.
It only takes mere minutes for water to spread throughout your property, where it will saturate anything and everything in its path. The walls, the floors, upholstery and your belongings are fast casualties of water.
The effects of water damage within the first 24 hours include:
- Drywall beginning to swell and break down
- Metal surfaces beginning to tarnish
- Furniture beginning to swell and crack
- Dyes and inks from cloth and paper items spreading and staining
- The beginning of a musty odor
As time goes on, the damage will continue to worsen. Between 48 hours and a week later, you could begin to see:
- The growth and spreading of mold and mildew
- Swelling and warping of doors, windows and studs
- Metal beginning to rust and corrode
- Paint beginning to blister
- Wood flooring swelling and warping
- The possibilities of serious biohazard contamination
If water damage is left unchecked for over a week, it will lead to dramatically increased restoration costs and time, as well as impact structural safety.
As a locally owned and operated franchise, we can provide an immediate response to any size disaster, which can help minimize the damage and help keep the cleaning and restoration costs manageable.
Our trained cleanup and restoration specialists can be dispatched to your property or business at any time, no matter what day or time it is.
We are close by and ready to respond whenever the call comes in. A major perk of being part of a national network of over 1,700 franchises is that we have access to more resources for the cleanup and restoration projects that may be larger or stem from major storm situations.
Remember, if you need us, we’ll be there—no matter the time or day. The team of highly trained restoration experts at SERVPRO® of East Brownsville & South Padre Island is available for emergency cleanup and restoration services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
