A nearby Friendly's gave us a call recently about a pipe burst in their restaurant.  When the pipe burst it destroyed the entire carpet and even some of the seating in the building.  Being a larger establishment, the owner found it in their best interest to give us a call.  They mentioned they have used SERVPRO in the past at one of their other locations, and said they wouldn't trust anyone but us to get the job done.  In total, the work took about 3 days to complete.  Everyone was very happy, thinking the job was going to take much longer due to the amount of damage.

If and when a problem arises, please don't hesitate to give SERVPRO a call--we're here to help!

The best way to reduce business interruption following a disaster is to plan for it now.  

As many as 50% of businesses may never recover following a disaster, according to the latest industry research.  Of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place.  Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind.

By developing a SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile for your business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action.  Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation and can help minimize how water and fire damage can affect your business.  

Are you ready?  Preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it's a small water leak, a large fire or an area flood.  The best time for planning for such events is not when the event happens, but well before it happens.  No one ever plans on a disaster, but you can plan for it.  Now is the time to ask yourself, "Are you ready for whatever could happen?"

The SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile is a start up approach that provides the critical information needed to begin mitigation and recovery services.  To schedule your free ERP, call SERVPRO of Langhorne/Bensalem today!
