Faster To Any Size Disaster
24 Hour Emergency Service
If your home was damaged in a flood, you don’t have time to wait. At SERVPRO of Western Lancaster County, we are available and ready for fast 24-hour service for all your flood damage needs.
Discover the Damage That Water Can Do
If you think water might just leave a stain or two, think again.
Within minutes, water spreads, leaving stains on walls, floors, upholstery, and belongings. Any paper in the home swells and warps. Within the first day, the drywall starts to weaken, metal tarnishes, furniture cracks, and a musty odor sets in.
If water damage continues for more than 24 hours, then mold and mildew are a threat. Additionally, metal can rust, furniture can warp, paint can blister, and biohazard contaminants become a potential reality.
Finally, if more than one week passes, the structural safety of the property is at risk. Extensive restoration work becomes necessary.
