Lakeland SERVPRO Assists in Storm Response
Recently, SERVPRO of Lakeland participated in a large-scale storm response that affected hundreds of thousands of homes across the central United States. SERVPRO of Lakeland assisted local franchises in the greater Nashville area that were affected by ice damming.
After several days of frozen temperatures and harsh weather, homes experienced frozen gutters that prevented run off and caused back up of water. This affected inner wall cavities, wood flooring, and carpeting caused water damage throughout many homes. SERVPRO of Lakeland responded quickly to the flooding and helped save homeowners thousands of dollars on potentially costly mold issues and reconstruction.
Over the course of eleven days, SERVPRO of Lakeland assisted dozens of customers by extracting water, placing air movers and dehumidifiers, and performing necessary demolition of water damaged drywall and flooring. SERVPRO of Lakeland General Manager, Robert Lay added, “this type of response transcends the traditional house flood response. Neighbors join together and show the strength and resolve that the term ‘community’ stands for across the nation. We acted not just as a hired hand, but as a friend, neighbor, and shoulder to cry on. It was an honor assisting these homeowners.”
