There’s more to SERVPRO than general cleanup, restoration or construction services. We’re here to take care of you when even the worst natural or manmade disasters strike.

Your local SERVPRO has you covered whether you’re experiencing flooding in your Biddeford-Saco home or the remnants of a large storm hit your business. Here’s what we can offer you 247:

Water Damage

Flooding can occur at any time, and whether it’s an inch or a foot, it can cause serious damage. In fact, floods cause more than $10 billion in damages nationwide every year.

If you’re a home or business owner, it’s likely you will encounter flooding issues in your lifetime, but SERVPRO has the tools to deal with the damages. We’ll help you understand the severity of the damage, so you’re able to make the right choice for restoration.

We have the tools to detect hidden moisture and extract standing water. We’ll also assist you in developing a water damage restoration plan to ensure your home is clean, dry and restored to preloss condition.

Fire Damage

A fire department in the United States responds to a fire every 23 seconds, and there was roughly $8.1 billion in direct property damage and losses nationwide in 2020. If your home or business has sustained fire damage, we’ll jump right into action with our seven-step restoration process.

This starts with an inspection and damage assessment and progresses through all the necessary, in-between steps before starting repairs and construction.

Storm Damage

Storms can bring around anything from floods and wildfires to tornadoes, hurricanes and blizzards. Our goal is always to have you back in your newly restored home as soon as possible.

Storm damage can include more than just flooding, as seen in Maine in November 2021. According to the Maine Department of Transportation, significant flooding happened in the Midcoast area of the state. In Saco, a sinkhole opened up on Summer Street. Additionally, in Biddeford, a large chunk of the wall and adjacent pedestrian lookout along the Saco River was swept away by water during the storm.

Storm and water damage can affect not only the structure of your home but your belongings as well. SERVPRO specializes in content restoration, with the mindset of restoring rather than replacing.

Some of the services we offer include dry cleaning, wet cleaning, foam cleansing and abrasive cleaning. If your home requires a more extensive clean, we also offer move-out services, so we can bring your home back to preloss condition as soon as possible.

Paul Jurgiewich, Production Manager at SERVPRO of Biddeford-Saco

In May of this year our newest Production Manager, Paul Jurgiewich joined our team.  Not only did he come to SERVPRO of Biddeford-Saco with experience in both property maintenance and mold remediation (as a previous industrial hygienist) he brought charisma and unity to our team.

He leads our crews with a safety topic every morning and uses the time to thoroughly explain not only what needs to be done for our customers but also why we are doing what we do.  There is complete transparency into his work ethic and remediation skills. He is the first to volunteer to go to jobs over the weekend when the crew need his help and works late to ensure our customers get their estimates as promised.

His hobbies include bike riding, exploring the outdoors (either on his Harley or boat).  He has a passion for cars and off-roading (maybe more in his younger days) and loves dogs.  

Paul is our seasoned expert in mold and a pro at determining where water and odor losses are coming from.  Give us a call today to set up an appointment with him at 207-283-4428.

Does Cheaper Mean Better?

8/13/2019 (Permalink)

It's 2019 and with the help of Google the world is at our fingertips.  Going on vacation?  Here's over 100+ websites rating the best resorts and destinations of your choice and another 100+ offering you a better rate and deal.  You narrow down your selections based of reviews and pick one that fits your budget! 

Now say someone rear ends your brand new car.  Your insurance gives you a list of places where you can get it fixed.  You may google a few, look at their reviews and move forward with say the top 3.  You get quotes from all three.  Now do you pick the cheapest or the one that seemed most detailed and knowledgeable?

The same idea applies to home insurance claims as well.  Often times we hear homeowners say they have someone who can do it cheaper, or they let us know their adjuster wants them to go with the cheapest company.  It is your home and you always have the right to choose which mitigation company you would like to do the work; however, cheaper doesn't always mean better.  SERVPRO of Biddeford-Saco always follows 18 inches beyond the affected area to ensure we leave no surprises behind.  Leaving water in building materials (especially porous materials) can lead to mold growth (surprise!).  Which can cause health issues for yourself and family.  

Did you know SERVPRO of Biddeford-Saco uses moisture meters every day on-site to ensure we dry every affected material before we pull our industry grade drying equipment.  We also have thermal imaging cameras for areas of question we may not be able to penetrate with a moisture meter.

Did you also know we guarantee our work?
