Prepare for the Season
As we enter the end of 2017, we also enter into the bad weather season in Philadelphia. While this feels like holiday fun, we have to stay prepared. As we've begun to experience rain, snow, and sleet here at SERVPRO, we've begun to get calls reporting water damage. With the importance of being quick to respond to salvage what we can. We had to act fast of course to prevent mold, but we ask for your vigilance as well. Before consistent rain hits, clean your gutters and if you are able, get your roof examined for any damage. We would like to have people prepared this season to prevent you from suffering a water damage. But if you do suffer from one, don't stress. You can call us here at SERVPRO of Society Hill at 215 772 1203 and we will make it "Like it never even happened."
Stay Up On Your Storm Watch
We all worry about losing power or being stuck somewhere when it comes to storms. Here at SERVPRO of Society Hill we worry about all the above but the most important is keeping the storm outside and keeping your residential house or place of business dry. The last thing you want to do is have to walk down to a basement with four feet of water in there or a second floor ceiling leaking due to a faulty roof that should have been replaced years ago. It can be a very painful process to see your home get torn apart and very uncomfortable as a temporary living situation. With this being said SERVPRO of Society Hill always recommends to stay up on your maintenance of your home or business. A replaced roof or a better sealed basement structure could be the difference between a week of heartache and thousands of dollars rather than just taking the simple precautions. Now we understand there is also the uncontrollable when it gets bad enough such as a hurricane and can destroy anything in its path. In either scenario when the worst happens just know that SERVPRO of Society Hill is on your side.

While you can't control the weather, you can take steps to be prepared, and help take the sting out of winter weather.
