SERVPRO Is Unique When It Comes To Working Together!

5/16/2022 (Permalink)

 

One of things that make SERVPRO of South Louisville so unique is how we work with our agents and customers to identify whether a claim should be filed.

SERVPRO has learned that insurance companies do not look favorable on zero paid claims. The insurance companies have found that people who turn in small claims are in effect using their policies as a home maintenance program.

We tell our agents to call us so we can put eyes on the situation. We can tell within a few minutes whether the claim will meet or exceed the customers deductible. This in turn helps the customer avoid higher rates, and the agent avoids a loss that in the long run could affect retention.

SERVPRO was recently asked by an agent to look at a customer‘s basement that had a sump pump malfunction. After reviewing the loss, the damage would not have met the insureds $2500 deductible. This insured avoided a claim and had SERVPRO of South Louisville do the water mitigation. Both parties were happy and we have a very satisfied agent and customer.

Sprinkler Water Damage to Downtown Louisville Skyscraper

SERVPRO of South Louisville was recently called out to a skyscraper building downtown that had their sprinkler system burst on the twenty-fourth floor, the damage from the water affected all the way down to the twentieth floor. For SERVPRO of South Louisville this was an "all hands on deck" job.  All of the production staff, the marketing team, and several office staff were at the building helping to perform the remediation work. 


There were large amounts of standing water on the affected floors that needed to be extracted.  Our team of certified technicians removed all of the damaged ceiling tiles, extracted the water, and removed any other damaged items in the office areas. 

The next step was to set up air movers and dehumidifiers to begin the dry out process. The equipment was set to get all of the moisture out of the affected areas, the air movers keep the moisture in the air moving around to get closer to the dehumidifier so it can be removed from the air. 

Emergencies like this happen on a regular basis, SERVPRO of South Louisville has the experience and the team needed to take care of the problem and make your residence or commercial building is back to normal, "Like it never even happened."

Mattress catches on fire and can cause severe damage. Following the fire the house was full of smoke damage and the residents were forced to move into a hotel since their home was not safe to stay in. Customers are always anxious to get back into their home and out of the hotel.

 Calling SERVPRO of South Louisville is the first step to getting back to normal.  The customer called us and explained that 9 rooms, 3 bathrooms, and the kitchen were all affected by smoke damage. SERVPRO was out the next day with a crew of 25 people pulling up hardwood floors from the water to put the fire out, chem spongeing the ceilings and walls to remove all of the smoke damage. 

Our crews were there from 9am and left at 6pm and the entire house was spotless! The customer let us know that our crews were quick, professional, clean, and precise with their work and that was the only way they were able to complete it so efficiently. Call SERVPRO of South Louisville for any of your restoration needs.

Winter Is Gone and Spring Has Sprung!

As winter goes on and we go back and forth with temperatures from the 40's to below freezing, the ground will go back and forth from freezing to thawing during those fluctuating temperatures.  As this happens during the winter months and into the spring, this will cause the ground around the exterior of buildings and houses to pool water. 

When we have rain or snow melting this can cause leaks around the foundation of your home or business.  You should do checks on the exterior and interior of buildings and houses to make sure there is no water coming in and causing water damage. 

Once the areas are checked you should go back and add soil and/or sod to those areas to fix the pooling of water and fix drainage to take water away from the foundation.  On the interior if cracks or leaking occurs you should take measures to fix any of those areas where water is coming in.  Once the cracks have been fixed any water damage should be mitigated properly to decrease your chances of any secondary issues such as mold.

Taking these steps will help keep your building or home dry on the inside and keep water from pooling around the perimeter.

We are a localized restoration service that gets the job done quickly and efficiently. Call SERVPRO of South Louisville to book a service.
