A 24/7 disaster recovery business

It makes sense for some businesses and service providers to keep business hours—it lets you know when they’ll be available to serve you, and in turn, they only have to operate during times when their service is likely to be needed. Makes perfect sense, most of the time.

But home disasters aren’t predictable—they can pop up anytime a pipe decides to burst or a destructive storm forms from thin air. In those cases, office hours aren’t nearly as helpful, because between the time one business day ends and the next begins, there’s a whopping 16 hours—that’s the majority of the day!

SERVPRO of West Topeka knows you can’t predict a disaster scenario. That’s why you never have to wait when you have an emergency—you can reach our helpful teams 24 hours a day to get the process of cleanup and recovery underway.

When you have to wait, bad things happen.

After a fire. The opening salvo for a fire is a flaming tower, but that’s not the end of things. Soot and smoke take only minutes to settle into walls, ceilings, and—you’d better believe—carpets.

As minutes turn to hours, the black slime they produce and smell they leave become permanent parts of your home’s landscape, meaning extra time and money have to be invested in reconstructing the surfaces they ruin.

After water damage. Once your home encounters water damage, a stopwatch starts ticking, and when it counts up to 48 hours, you have a mold issue on top of your initial water damage.

Mold growth physically threatens all kinds of organic surfaces in your home and on your possessions, and if left unmitigated it also becomes a rather serious threat to your health, especially if anyone in the home has pre-existing issues with asthma or respiratory difficulty.

And that’s just touching the surface. Flooding, natural disasters and powerful storms can make for sudden scenarios in which you need immediate help—and none of them pay attention to office hours. Fortunately, you’re linked up with the best team in the industry, right here in the neighborhood.

You don’t have to wait when you have a disaster at home. There’s a PRO for that.

When you need help after a home or business disaster, fast service is a priority, and there’s nobody faster or more prepared than SERVPRO. Call us anytime to take advantage of our 24-hour emergency service.
