New Homeowner’s Guide to Emergency Restoration  

couch under water

As a new homeowner, you’re proud of your house and property and you want to take care of it. After all, it represents a significant investment and it’s filled with your most valuable belongings. But the harsh reality is, no matter where you live, you could be the victim of a disaster or other incident which will require significant emergency restoration services. The most common types of home damage include:

  • Water Damage - Though often the result of severe weather, serious water damage can also be caused by leaky plumbing or a damaged roof.
  • Mold – most often a result of water damage, mold can also occur in areas of high moisture or highly humid environments like bathrooms and kitchens. It’s important to address a mold infestation immediately because it can quickly spread throughout your home in as little as 48 hours, and it can be a serious health threat. Mold remediation is something that needs to be left to experts with the right equipment and expertise.
  • Fire and Smoke Damage - A fire can cause significant structural damage that needs to be assessed for safety, and smoke is an insidious element that goes deeper than just the surface. Fast restoration efforts can save much of your home and belongings.
  • Storm Damage – Tornadoes, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, snow and ice can all result in downed trees and limbs, roof damage, collapsed outbuildings, and more. The professionals at ServiceMaster of Buncombe County can cleanup and repair the damages in a timely manner.

As a new homeowner, it’s important for you to be aware of the types of damage that could occur and know what to do if it does. Keep the experts at ServiceMaster of Buncombe County on speed dial and contact us anytime, day or night, for a free estimate and fast service.

    ServiceMaster is one of the best mots honest businesses in town. After my Dad experienced a groundwater flood in the bottom level of his house from the above-average rainfall in 2018, we gave Chad and his team a call. They were booked to the gills with clients who were experiencing similar issues, but they made time to come out and look, help us confirm the issue, and get us set up with dehumidifiers and air movers to dry things up. They were honest about their prices and flexible about payment, super responsive and just good down-to-earth WNC kind of people. Thanks so much ServiceMaster team!
