Our Leadership, Part Two

7/27/2021 (Permalink)

We officially became SERVPRO of Vincennes owners in January 2013. Danny's parents (Leonard and Mary Drewes) and Danny's wife, Morgan. We hit the ground running. I think there were days we were actually running! Our newest addition as of May 2019, SERVPRO of West Evansville has already been extremely busy and we are SO GRATEFUL. Evansville has always been a city near and dear to our hearts, and when the opportunity to purchase it came available, we hit the ground running, again. 

From the beginning, we knew we wanted our SERVPRO to be a company with integrity, and honesty. We wanted to base our business on serving others and serving them well. This is something you will often hear us say, after all, that's what it's all about. 

SERVPRO of Vincennes and West Evansville has become another family to all of us. The people we have brought together are exactly what each business needed. It has been incredible watching this story unfold. 

Our Leadership, Part One

SERVPRO is an amazing company to be a part of, and every owner has a different story! Our owner's story is below!

Entrepreneurship has always been in Danny's blood. He comes from a long line of family farmers and he started his own mowing business as soon as he could drive. For a sixteen year old, it really took off. He is a worker.  He spends a lot of time on the phone and computer nowadays, but if you asked him what he preferred he would say physical labor. 

Fast forward to today. He actually just decided to close the chapter on his mowing business in 2016. We are thankful that our business has grown and we all knew focusing on SERVPRO of West Evansville was the next step. SERVPRO of West Evansville has been an amazing journey and we are loving every step!

Danny saw a huge opportunity in SERVPRO while working under Dave Wolfe (Owner of SERVPRO of Effingham, Illinois) and he ran with it. We would all laugh and say that he decided to drag his parents and wife into it too.

Damages like these can cause you to close your doors for weeks, sometimes even months. Which unfortunately means a loss in revenue. In some cases, a huge loss in revenue.

That is why SERVPRO of West Evansville is here. We want to turn those closed commercial property doors from months to weeks, and weeks to days. We want to take the mess and put it all back together.

Do you have Smoke Damage in your Home?

6/19/2021 (Permalink)

Did you know there are Different Types of Smoke?

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of West Evansville will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Why the Green Team is the Best Team

Did you think that all fire and water restoration companies are created equal?

Well unfortunately they aren't....That's why we wanted to write this post. When people have a "wet basement" or "sump pump failure" most of them call their insurance company or they google what to do. That's okay. We do that when we are looking for companies too. But just because a company is on google and can mitigate water from your basement does not mean that they have any credentials at all! Shocking and scary huh? 

Here at SERVPRO of West Evansville we are IICRC certified and we are a certified firm. That might not explain much but what that means is that we have the highest credentials possible for water damage restoration. 

We are proud of our credentials and we feel that our quality of work shows it.
