2018 Recap of the year of SERVPRO
It's a new year so let's look back at 2018 and see what it looked like for SERVPRO of Chambersburg. If one thing stands out overall from this year it is RAIN. We experience a large amount of rain over and over again. April showers we expect every year but we were inundated with high volume call in Franklin County PA in April, June-August. According to the national weather services (https://water.weather.gov/precip/ ) we had approximately 20 inches then our normal for the south central Pennsylvania area.
What kind of services calls were there? Sub pump failure was the biggest issued homeowners were faced with. Either their pump wasn't able to keep up with the rate of rain they were getting or they simply stopped working. Then as homeowners were attempting to fix their pumps they were learning how the big box stores like Lowes, Home Depot were all sold out.
Once the pump was up and working again the water in their basement was able to drain most of it then SERVPRO can in with the extractor and removed the remaining water then dried out the basement with air mover and dehumidifiers.
