Faster To Any Size Disaster
24 Hour Emergency Service
During the recent Polar Vortex, we received many calls from frantic Property Management companies searching for a restoration company to clean multiple units due to pipe breaks or collapsed roofs. During that period of time our experienced crews worked around the clock, sacrificed sleep and rest to make sure that each apartment, townhouse, and condo was cleaned, dried and/or packed out. We were happy to come to the rescue and provide fast and efficient service.
When a company advertises daily that they provide 24-hour emergency service they must live up to that. SERVPRO of Oak Lawn was able to do just that.
A disaster like the polar vortex is not something we necessarily want to experience but we know that disasters like it and worse will happen which is why our teams are trained and prepared to tackle any size disaster and strives to provide the best possible service every time.
