It is important for homeowners to be prepared for damages, both by understanding their risks and having a plan for what to do in the aftermath. Picking a restoration company is an important and often overlooked part of this process. It is important to do your research and pick a company that you can trust to restore your home.

What to Look for in a Restoration Company

Finding a restoration company to work with can be difficult, but knowing you made the right decision will provide you with ample peace of mind once the time for restoration comes. In order to make the best decision, it is important to know the details that matter about your restoration company:

The Damages They Can Handle

Because there are many facets to every type of damage, it is important to choose a company with a wide scope of service. By being certified in many types of restoration, we have the competence and the expertise to handle it all. Whether your fire damage also requires air purification or water damage leads to structural issues, we’ll be able to help with every step.

When They’ll be There for You

House damages do not stick to a schedule, so finding a company that will be there for you whenever you need them is very important. That’s why we have an emergency line that’s available 24 hours a day; regardless of when you need to call in, our team will be here for you.

The Quality of Work You Can Expect

Count on Us to Respond to Your Disaster Fast | SERVPRO® of Pueblo

When disaster strikes your home or business, you don’t have the benefit of waiting for help when it is your home or livelihood on the line—you need it right away.

We understand that a fast response is crucial, which is why responding faster to any size disaster is more than just a slogan to us.

Why Responding Quickly Matters

Time becomes a precious commodity when it’s your belongings or business on the line. This is especially true where water damage has been involved, which can happen through various means such as flooding, appliance and/or plumbing failures, storm damage and firefighting efforts.

It only takes a matter of mere minutes for water to spread throughout your property, saturating the walls, floors, upholstery and your belongings, which all become casualties of water damage.

The effects of water damage within the first 24 hours include:

  • Drywall beginning to swell and break down
  • Metal surfaces beginning to tarnish
  • Furniture beginning to swell and crack
  • Dyes and inks from cloth and paper items spreading and staining
  • The beginning of a musty odor

The damage will continue to worsen as time goes on. Anywhere from 48 hours up to a week later, you could begin to see:

  • The growth and spreading of mold and mildew
  • Swelling and warping of doors, windows and studs
  • Metal beginning to rust and corrode
  • Paint beginning to blister
  • Wood flooring swelling and warping
  • The possibilities of serious biohazard contamination

If left untreated for more than a week, water can lead to dramatically increased restoration times and costs and can also have an impact on structural safety.

How We Can Help

We can provide an immediate response to any size disaster, which can help keep damage to a minimum and help keep the cleaning and restoration costs manageable.

We have trained cleanup and restoration specialists that can be dispatched to your property or business at any time, no matter what day or time it is.

A major perk of being part of a national network of over 1,700 franchises is that we have access to more resources for the cleanup and restoration projects that may be larger or stem from major storm situations. Also, since we are a locally owned and operated franchise, we are close by and ready to respond whenever the call comes in.

Remember, if you need us, we’ll be there—no matter the time or day. The team of highly trained restoration experts at SERVPRO® of Pueblo is available for emergency cleanup and restoration services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
