Natural Disasters & Mobilization
Natural Disasters are the unexpected expected. They are the fast spinning phenomena that receive a lot of hype in a short period of time but create severe long-term damage. Natural disasters can be, but are not limited to, hurricanes, tsunamis, cyclones, earthquakes, mudslides, wildfires, volcanic eruptions, floods and other extreme weather conditions. In the wake of a natural disaster, communities are left with the problems of extreme infrastructure damage, public health safety and contaminated water throughout homes and businesses. As a ServiceMaster Restore Commercial Response Team (CRT) member, we at ServiceMaster Elite are qualified and trained in aiding through clean up and emergency restoration, after a natural disaster has struck.
Prior to a disaster striking, members of our Ops Management team are meeting with business owners and creating plans or establishing businesses as a part of our Commercial Priority Response Program. Our customized program is altered to fit each business needs with a proactive and innovative pre-loss agreement. Members of our Commercial Priority Response Program will automatically be given priority response for water mitigation and disaster restoration needs. If you are a business in regions where natural disasters strike often, consider reaching out to ServiceMaster Elite to establish your business within our Commercial Priority Response Program, (888) 245-0354.
Following a Disaster
Immediately following disasters, trained members of our Ops Management team, through use of moisture meters and infrared cameras, are inspecting businesses to help determine the extent of damage. Upon pinpointing these areas, signing an agreement for work to be completed, and communicating with insurance; our certified and trained technicians are brought onsite to complete the process, potentially including removing wallboard, flooring, insulation, sanitizing and disinfecting, and placing the proper amount of equipment to accomplish a well-balance drying method of the entire structure. Our goal is to work quickly to return your business to pre-loss condition, so you can re-open your doors promptly.
