Following the events of September 11, 2001, SERVPRO Franchise Professionals were called in to assist with cleanup and restoration of the Pentagon.  As everyone can remember, it was a difficult, emotional, and uneasy time to travel, or simply go to work.  In spite of the emotions and difficulties involved in the restoration effort, SERVPRO Franchise Professionals dried nearly 300,000 square feet in addition to providing fire, soot and smoke cleanup and restoration services. Upon compeltion of the drying assignment, SERVPRO Franchise Professionals provided mold remediation services in other sections of the facility.  Despite the size of the project, the emotional sensitivity of those involved at the time, and other unique aspects of the project, SERVPRO Frachise Professionals met the challenge and completed the project in just 90 days.

Holiday Weekend

8/28/2017 (Permalink)

After leaving a property vacant for a few days, the property owner returned to find this unfortunate mess.

With the holiday weekend upon us, many people will be heading to the beach for one last summer weekend!  However, if a water damage were to occur while the house is unoccupied, you could be coming home to a disaster!  

As a tip, you should consider shutting off the main valve that controls all the water for your home in order to protect against catastrophic water damage. Everyone in your home should know where the main water shutoff valve is located so they can stop the water in an emergency. And you should turn it off whenever you leave home, even overnight.  

If you forget to shut off the main water valve, and you do walk into a water damage, here are just a few tips of what to do:

  • Shut off the source of water if possible
  • Turn off circuit breakers for areas of the building if possible
  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping or extracting

We hope everyone enjoys the unofficial "end of the summer" holiday weekend!  Should you or someone you know need help with a water damage, SERVPRO of Fox Chase/Torresdale professionals will be available to help 24/7!
