Why is 24 Hour Services Important to you?
Damage doesn't follow time constraints
In many restoration situations, immediate action is very important, if not crucial to the salvation of your items and the severity of the damage done. Therefore, it is not possible for SERVPRO of Jefferson, Franklin, & Perry Counties to only operate eight hours a day.
Damage worsens quickly
Perhaps the most time sensitive form of damage is water damage.
- Within minutes of exposure to water, your belongings and the structure of your home will begin to absorb the damaging fluids. Paper goods swell and upholstery is soaked.
This is a common side effect of every case of water damage. But when you begin to wait, things slowly go downhill...
- In hours one to 24, drywall begins to breakdown. A musty odor will begin to appear and furniture swells and cracks.
- In hours 24 to 48, serious biohazard contamination is possible and metal begins to rust and corrode. Many other side effects appear during this time.
- After a week, cost increases dramatically and residents are at a serious health risk.
