General Happy New Year! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from your friends at SERVPRO!  

2016 was a great year and we are excited about what 2017 has to offer.

In December we moved offices and we are finally settled into the new warehouse.  It's taken quite a bit of time getting everything organized and settled in but now we are good to go.  

One of our water technicians, Gazmend, has left our franchise to join the Phoenix Police Department and we couldn't be more proud of him.  We will sure miss him around here but we are excited for him to be able to live out his dreams of being a Police Officer.

Our owners, Ray and Tammy, will be Grandparents for the first time in April and we couldn't be more excited for them.  So far it looks like 2017 has some great things in store!

We wish you all the best in 2017 and, as always, want you to know that we are here for you for any of your restoration needs.  Whether it's a quick question or a free estimate, please never hesitate to call us.  We are here for you 24/7.

Restoring Your Glendale or Peoria Commercial Property After A Water Damage Event

10/4/2016 (Permalink)

Flooding and water damage events at Peoria and Glendale commercial properties are often complex with numerous issues that require a knowledgeable and flexible response. Whether we’re dealing with a relatively small water cleanup scenario or a large scale event, we work quickly to assess each unique situation and isolate the damaged area. In many instances, normal operations can continue in a temporary space while we restore your facility.

Restoring Commercial Properties Presents Unique Challenges

Our professionals are trained to be mindful of legal and environmental concerns and strive to fully restore the damaged area while working within your budgetary constraints. We understand that every hour spent cleaning up is an hour of lost revenue and productivity. So when an emergency situation arises in your business, give us a call and we’ll be there fast with the help you need.

About SERVPRO of Peoria/W. Glendale

SERVPRO of Peoria/W. Glendale specializes in the cleanup and restoration of commercial and residential property after a water damage event. Our staff is highly trained in property damage restoration. From initial and ongoing training at SERVPRO’s corporate training facility to regular IICRC-industry certification, rest assured our staff is equipped with the knowledge to restore your property.

Flooding and How the Quality of Water affects You.

9/26/2016 (Permalink)

If you experience flash flooding and water rises above the main level of your home, you need to be aware of the quality of the water soaking through your drywall and damaging your floors. This water is called “Cat 3” or Category 3, the worst quality of water measured. Cat 3 water can contain chemicals, carcinogens, sewage, and dead animals. It is important you do not come in direct contact to Cat 3 water. As a professional restoration company, SERVPRO® of Peoria/West Glendale at 623-376-9779, is experienced at extracting the water and removing all materials affected by this type of water. We also use EPA registered antimicrobial solutions to kill bacteria and make the structure safe for human habitation. Our technicians are trained to take care of your possessions and we will be with you every step of the way.

The Responsibility of the Homeowner in a Water Loss.

9/26/2016 (Permalink)

It seems obvious, but the absolute first thing you do when encountering a pipe burst and water pouring through your home is to turn off the water. You need to have at your disposal a water meter wrench (you can get one for less than $20.00 from your local hardware or Big Box store).  Some houses and most commercial properties have a main water shut off valve inside the house, but most do not, and it is important to train everyone from teenagers to seniors how to use the wrench to cut off your water meter. The difference between a 500 gallon water loss and a 5,000 gallon water loss can be enormous. Next call us, SERVPRO® of Peoria/West Glendale at 623-376-9779 and your insurance agent. We can refer a competent plumber to repair any damage to water pipes. If you call a plumber first, beware of those who offer to have “someone they trust” come to remove the water and dry the house. In Arizona it is not unusual for an independent water restoration company to pay referral fees up to $1,000 to the plumber who gets them the job. This fee is added to the cost of the job, which will ultimately drive up insurance rates. Our goal is to return your house to pre-loss condition as affordably as possible. Just remember this: We are….faster to any disaster!

Welcome!

Welcome to Our Blog

Hi SERVPRO friends, my name is Kelly Kordick and I am a Marketing Representative for SERVPRO of Peoria/W. Glendale. 

I grew up in the country 10 minutes South of Des Moines, Iowa.  My graduating class size was 32 people and K-12 was all in the same building.  I was active in the local 4-H program and I served as Vice President for two years and showed my horses, Bambi and Rodeo.  As much as I loved the country and my small town, I always knew I wanted to move away and go to college at Arizona State University.  Growing up in Iowa I developed a love for the sport of wrestling, which followed me into my college career where I was the wrestling manager at ASU.

I have been a part of the SERVPRO family for 6 years.  I started working for SERVPRO of Peoria/W. Glendale when I was a junior at ASU majoring in Business Marketing.  I thought it would be a great job to help build my resume so when I graduated I would have some experience under my belt.  Little did I know I would end up loving SERVPRO and so many different aspects of the job! 

I work in the marketing department as well as doing a lot of administrative tasks and have also had the opportunity to join our SERVPRO Storm Team where I travel to disasters.  I can't wait to tell you all about my experience with Hurricane Sandy and all of the other storms I helped with.

Feel free to e-mail me at kordick.kelly@gmail.com if you have any questions or if you'd like to see any specific content on my blog.  I'd love to hear from you :)
