Is Your Emergency Kit Ready?
Most of us here at SERVPRO of West Evansville do have an emergency kit..do you?
We were actually surprised to learn that 51.5% of US homes have the recommended emergency kit in their home or car. We thought it might be a lot less than that.
The American Red Cross encourages that each household and car have a preparedness kit.
The top items in an emergency kit should be:
- canned food
- can opener
- enough food and water for each person in your household for 5 days.
Be on the look out for our preparedness tips and tricks coming this September ! We will have videos and posts on our facebook page (click the link below in blue!) and youtube page. You won't want to miss it!
We are Proud to have the Best Crews
Most people aren't prepared for a water or fire damage at home. They also aren't prepared for a water or fire damage at work or at their business.

SERVPRO of West Evansville has a large group of well trained crews that are here to step in and help make it “Like it never even happened.”
Our crews will work with you and your insurance company to take care of the documentation and record keeping to insurance that the claim will go smoothly and all will be taken care of. Our management team will also be apart of this to make sure we are being the most efficient with the best communication.
Each day and each job we strive to be the best restoration team you have ever experienced.

A Clogged Downspout could Cause Flooding!
What is a downspout?
A downspout is a pipe that carries rainwater from a roof to the ground. For a downspout to work correctly it must be functioning correctly. Leaves and yard debris can end up causing plugs and clogs in downspouts leading them to back up and not drain as intended. If you see signs of pooling and puddles make sure to clean out and clear out your downspouts to eliminate the blockage and lessen your chances of flooding from rainwater.
Water damage is not fun, therefore SERVPRO of West Evansville is here to give you tips on how to prevent it from happening at your home or office. If you do experience water or fire damage let us take care of it by calling 812-465-2500.
