When you hear the words “water damage,” what image comes to mind? Is it a leaky pipe in the kitchen? A flooded basement? A home or business damaged by severe weather?
Those two simple words can mean many different things depending on the cause of the water damage itself.
ServiceMaster by ARTec is equipped to handle water damage restoration of all types, but we’re especially conscious of the concerted effort it takes to handle large-scale water damage restoration, because of its widespread and often dangerous impact.
For both the restoration company and the individuals affected, large-scale water damage restoration requires a different mindset and strategies.
Today, we’re going to discuss the steps you must take when faced with large-scale loss and share reasons why you should put your trust in ServiceMaster by ARTec if such a disaster occurs.
What is Large-scale Loss?
A burst pipe in your King of Prussia, PA home or business doesn’t equate to large-scale loss. Large-scale loss is usually due to something major such as a hurricane or severe flash flooding that affects a vast area.
Large-scale loss can also mean a disastrous event that affects a major commercial entity.
Regardless of the source, large-scale loss events have a major impact and need to be dealt with differently than smaller-scale events.
How Do You Respond to a Large-scale Loss Event?
If you find yourself in need of large-scale water damage restoration, you need a combination of quick action and patience.
We guarantee to be on site within 2 to 4 hours after contact, but during a large-scale disaster, that may feel like an eternity. Just know that our team will be available as soon as humanly possible.
Also, if the large-scale loss occurs due to a severe weather event, your first priority should always be safety. If the disaster has caused evacuation from your home or business, don’t return until you are absolutely sure it’s safe to do so. This means paying careful attention to your local emergency broadcasting system and following its directions verbatim.
Second, try not to let the size of the event cause panic. When a large commercial building or entire neighborhood needs large-scale water damage restoration, the task of fixing it might seem difficult to impossible.
We’ve encountered so many situations that we’re confident in our restoration capabilities, regardless of the size of the event. Once your King of Prussia, PA home or business is in our hands, there’s no need to panic.
Who Do You Need to Work With in the Event of a Large-Scale Loss Event?
If you’re in need of large-scale water damage restoration, you might think you’ll need to work with multiple companies to complete the restoration project.
After all, there are so many different components to something as vast a commercial building – drywall, electrical systems, flooring, insulation, concrete – and one company couldn’t handle all of the necessary restoration work, right?
Wrong! ServiceMaster by ARTec provides a full range of services including electrical work, construction, and plumbing, to name a few. We’ll restore your King of Prussia, PA building from top to bottom with our in-house team of trained, experienced professionals.
