Why SERVPRO One Person Can Make All The Difference Tabitha Ferris - Project Manager

In the fast-moving world of real estate, one little glitch can make or break sealing a deal.  And at times, if there is a serious glitch involved, a realtor might be lucky enough to have that one person step in to save the day for all parties involved.

Tabetha Farris (Tabby), SERVPRO of Jefferson City’s project manager, was that one person.  She put an agent’s clients at ease during an incredibly stressful time.  The home they were purchasing was vacant, and within 3 days of closing, a sizable water leak in the basement was discovered.   The agent was so pleased with the work Tabetha did. She shared the fantastic and extremely professional job Tabby did explaining the details of the restoration process to her clients, further complimenting Tabby on her professionalism and putting her clients at ease.  She worked tirelessly communicating between both buyers, sellers and their agents with status updates.  Tabby’s efforts strengthened the realtor’s opinion of SERVPRO of Jefferson City and she truly believes Tabby saved the sale of the house, further stating that SERVPRO of Jefferson City is now listed as a primary contact in her phone.   We at SERVPRO of Jefferson City are so proud to have Tabby on our team.

Be prepared for whatever weather we get in Missouri!

We all know how crazy the weather in Missouri can be at any time. There is never a better time to be prepared than before the storm hits! Be sure you know the difference between a watch and a warning.                                              

      Make sure your prepared with these tips from ready.gov

Flood Watch = “Be Aware.” Conditions are right for flooding to occur in your area.

Steps to Take

  • Turn on your TV/radio. You will receive the latest weather updates and emergency instructions.
  • Know where to go. You may need to reach higher ground quickly and on foot.
  • Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit. Include a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.

Prepare Your Home

  • Bring in outdoor furniture and move important indoor items to the highest possible floor. This will help protect them from flood damage.
  • Disconnect electrical appliances and do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing in water. You could be electrocuted.
  • If instructed, turn off your gas and electricity at the main switch or valve. This helps prevent fires and explosions.

Flood Warning = "Take Action!" Flooding is either happening or will happen shortly.

Steps to Take

  • Move immediately to higher ground or stay on high ground.
  • Evacuate if directed.
  • Avoid walking or driving through flood waters. Turn Around, Don’t Drown! Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down and 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away.

Water Damage Signs That You Need To Hire A Water Damage Repair Professional Avoid entering a room that has a water-logged ceiling.

Your Jefferson City area home was flooded.  There’s little doubt about it. You arrived home from work to find puddles of water on the floor with objects floating about, all caused by a broken pipe. You turned off the water to your Jefferson City home and are about to call in a water damage repair professional to take on the cleanup job. But do you? Or is it something that you can handle yourself? Let’s go over some of the criteria in order to help you make this decision.

Your Jefferson City Basement Is Submerged In Several Inches of Water

A submerged basement can lead to a number of problems, all of which an expert water damage repair company can deal with. They can pump out the water, work with a plumbing company to repair the problem (if it was a damaged pipe), and then restore everything in your basement until it looks just as it did before the flood.  SERVPRO of Jefferson City experts can even identify secondary problems, such as the beginnings of mold before they even begin.

Your Carpeting Is Soaked

It can be tricky to remove water from carpeting. The pad underneath is most likely soaked and will probably need to be discarded. Since mold can easily grow in these waterlogged conditions, you want to call in a water damage restoration company to restore your carpeting back to how it used to be. There’s no need to rip out the carpeting and have a new one installed if SERVPRO of Jefferson City could save it!

Your Ceilings Are Sagging

A sagging ceiling is a sign that water has ruined the structural integrity of your building. You should never go into a room with a sagging ceiling because you don’t want to be underneath if it were to collapse. If you see problems of this magnitude, then you need to call your local water damage repair company SERVPRO of Jefferson City. They will be able to remove the water, shore up the ceiling, and then conduct any necessary restoration.

You Want the Experts to Handle the Job

Sometimes you just don’t have the time to deal with a flooded basement no matter how minor the incident.  If this is the case, then go ahead and call SERVPRO of Jefferson City.  It’s their duty to help. Call for your free inspection today, 573-635-5883.
