All hands were on deck for this project.

The Greater Philadelphia area was hit with a huge storm that created a ton of damage throughout the tri-state. A local Giant Supermarket needed immediate emergency response from our team when the entire store flooded from the storm. Throughout the aisles and underneath the shelves, water found its way everywhere!

The most important thing to Giant management was getting the store operational, so they made a call to SERVPRO Team Paparone, and we coordinated all personnel, equipment, and drying documentation across multiple SERVPROs.

The store was able to open the next morning, pending a health inspection from the city!

REMEMBER: Response time to any size water damage is crucial!
