Building Services The Power of Four Erin, Jackie, Paul and Caitlin

These four individuals are a powerful group.  They think outside the box and came up with some great ideas. They love and take pride in what they do. Within the building industry they are coming up with new and unique ways to improve our relations.  Most recently they tolled out a new plan that has really been working for us.  The amount of Emergency Ready Plans this team has prepared are amazing.  The go into buildings and point out all the potential issues, tag specific areas with cautions and help put together a written plan on what to do if an emergency arises. They pass the message on that SERVPRO is here to help.  They give the customer a binder or thumb drive whichever the customer prefers.  We also now have a mobile app for this as well.

General SERVPRO Stools SERVPRO Stools

How fun and playful are these SERVPRO of Brandywine/Wilmington stools?  They are stools on a swivel that help show our SERVPRO Pride.  We have them placed throughout the shop. We even put one in the waiting room.  They were made especially for SERVPRO'S and we could not resist buying them.  We are always in need of seats around the shop. Guys and gals are always finishing up loose end paperwork on their iPad's and this is a great place for them to have a seat.  They are colorful, fun, cheery and quite comfortable.  It seems like a lot of items around the shop have SERVPRO written or painted on them.  What a fun and happy way to show everyone our SERVPRO Pride.

Roof Hole

Fire Damage Roof Hole Roof Tarp

Here is a team of SERVPRO men attending to a hole in the roof as well as the side wall.  In this picture you can see the men working to put down a tarp and securing it with furring strips. They also placed a board over the side window. After a mishap has taken place in a home or building sometimes the structure needs to be secured from additional outdoor elements. Additional elements may be something like additional rain and winds.  The furring strips are placed to help raise, level or help secure the tarp and/or wood. They are placed perpendicular to the joists and then they are nailed in place.  This is a temporary fix until the roof can be properly repaired by a roofer.

School Help

Commercial School Help Stairs

SERVPRO of Hockessin/Elsmere was able to help three schools at the same time to get opened for school in the nick of time.  Schools were closed for the summer time and they wanted them back up in tip top shape for the students to return to a clean environment.  Some of the schools gave little time and strict constraints in order to obtain the desired results!  It was quite a challenge but SERVPRO of Hockessin/Elsmere came to the rescue and the challenge was met! These schools were able to re-open in time and it left both the administration and the staff very pleased with us! SERVPRO of Hockessin/Elsmere felt a strong sense of responsibility to not only the school, but the workers and students who were going to be returning to the school, and we could not have been more happier to help!

Biohazard SERVPRO of Brandywine/Wilmington Makes News SERVPRO of Brandywine/Wilmington cleans up after court house shooting!

A shootout in a courthouse and SERVPRO of Brandywine/Wilmington makes the news.  A disgruntled family makes an attempt during a child custody case that ended very badly.  The city was closed down for hours.  The courthouse needed SERVPRO of Brandywine/Wilmington to respond quickly and cover the windows from the media and curious people.  We were to help recover the bullets from the walls and ceilings.  The mess and blood was everywhere.  We were trusted with information and worked closely with all kinds of entities.  We were able to help get the scene cleared quickly and professionally.  We assisted with pictures, documentation and cleaning.  The State was very happy with SERVPRO of Brandywine/Wilmington. And here at SERVPRO, we send out our whole hearted condolences to all who were affected by this terrible incident.
