Major Catastrophe Assistance - SERVPRO is Here

Flood at a Large Warehouse Flood at a large warehouse during the February 2021 Winter Storm

In February of 2021, a major winter weather event affected a wide swath of US unofficially called Winter Storm Uri.  States not accustomed to winter weather of this sort and of this duration like Texas were hit hard compounded by a power crisis resulting in electrical blackouts.  Something of this size caused major damage most notably with pipes that froze and burst.  This happened immediately and for months after as pipes were weakened. This was the costliest recorded natural disaster in the history of Texas.

In each local area, there were not enough specialty companies like plumbers and water mitigation companies to help the mountain of people needing help.  It is during this time that many "new" companies pop up overnight to take advantage of the situation and people in desperate help.  Many of these fly-by-night companies not only don't have the right tools to get things done and leave things often worse off but gouge trusting customers.

SERVPRO is a trusted, nationally recognized company with more than 1,700 locations across the US.  It is a time like this when we use the power of our numbers to come to the aid of people and companies in dire straights.  We have great relationships with just about every insurance company out there with numerous contracted national account agreements.  SERVPRO has been around for 50+ years and has the experience, knowledge and family like culture that makes us the choice when it comes to major disasters.
