Benefits of a Locally Owned and Operated Franchise
SERVPRO is a franchisor with restoration franchises all over the United States. This means that each and every one of our SERVPRO franchises are locally owned and operated! But what does that mean?
In many cases, locally owned businesses are more likely to spend their money at other local businesses when it comes to purchasing products or services for their company. Because of this, SERVPRO can help local areas not only by offering restoration services but by keeping money circulating throughout the local economy.
Our locally owned franchises also allow for more locations, meaning that in most cases, your local SERVPRO franchise is never far away. This allows us to reach your location faster than any other restoration company-- being closer to your location means that we can respond immediately-- day or night-- with our 24-Hour Emergency Service. Since we can help faster than other companies, that means we can also save you money, since faster clean-up likely means that water or fire damage will be less extensive.
SERVPRO’s locally owned and operated franchise system also means that we’re able to specially train our restoration professionals in whatever type of restoration the local area needs most. For example, in areas that are prone to flooding, our main focus is water damage. In hot, dry areas, we may put more emphasis on fire damage. However, all SERVPRO professionals are ultimately proficient in both types of restoration, so there’s no need to worry, even if you have fire damage in an area that tends to flood!
SERVPRO also helps the areas of their locations by helping others to continue their education when it comes to water and fire damage, mold, restorative drying, and mitigation awareness. These classes are offered to franchise staff, insurance agents and adjusters, and real estate professionals, which means that even your real estate agent will know what to do if you’re considering buying a house to restore!
In addition, SERVPRO staff also has access to even more education through voluntary e-Learnings. This means that no matter where you’re located, your local SERVPRO team will always be up-to-date on industry standards and the best cleaning processes for whatever damage you may have in your home or commercial space.
As you can see, there are many benefits to having a locally owned SERVPRO in your area, both for you as a customer and for the community. We hope that next time you need restoration services, you’ll consider your local SERVPRO!
