A knight stands outside a castle, at attention This is another one of our employees. He works in Sales and Marketing.

Everyone’s got a passion he or she lives for. Maybe yours is selling artisanal cheeses, or perhaps artisanal tea. Maybe it is artisanal craft brews, or artisanal bricks, or even artisanal spelunking head lamps, (etc.)

Ours is protecting your business from whatever cold, unfeeling force of nature wishes to damage it. That means restoring, cleaning, or even reconstructing your business after a flood, after a fire, or even after a COVID exposure.

It means cleaning up and remediating mold damage, and restoring your floors, ceilings, and walls, and getting all the yucky, dangerous spores out of your formerly-pristine air ducts by cleaning it to our industry's most professional standards. If that sounds like the kind of business you’re looking for, get in touch! We’re just a phone call away:(704) 925-1019, and we can be onsite in less than four hours, which gives you plenty of time to get some cookies or lemonade ready for when we get there (hint-hint!), and we’re open 24/7!

A flood map of Salisbury, NC This will be the most important map you see for the next three hours.

Floods can be some of the most sudden, destructive natural disasters, especially since they’re not as much a regional occurrence as hurricanes or tornadoes. Anywhere there is water, whether it’s a river, lake, or creek, a flood can happen.

But you may not need to get all worked up and afraid–you may not even be at risk! Salisbury has only a few areas that are susceptible to flood damage, and has only a mild risk in the rest of the town. If you’d like to see what the risk is where you live, follow this link: Salisbury Flood Map. You can put in your address and select the layers you want to see to find out what floodplain you’re in, where the flooding goes, and how deep the flooding has been within the past year, hundred years, and five hundred years.

An All in One Candy bar This bar is much like SERVPRO: It can cleanup, restore, and reconstruct your home after a disaster.

JD Power’s Annual Survey on home restoration and reconstruction found that one of the most important factors in selecting a damage restoration company is finding a business that handles everything in-house, instead of having to procure the services of multiple companies to handle cleanup, restoration, and reconstruction. Well, if you’re one of those intelligent, prudent clients with discriminating taste, you’re in luck! SERVPRO of North Rowan is the Damage Cleanup and Restoration + Reconstruction Company for you! One call can have a franchise professional at your property in mere hours with a van full of top-of-the-line industrial equipment, ready to knock out every step in the cleanup and restoration process and get you back to as close to preloss conditions as possible and make it “Like it never even happened.”

A bird's eye-view of an outdoor flea market They almost look like a grille from here. It's synchronicity, folks!

What Time does SERVPRO North Rowan Close?

12/7/2021 (Permalink)

A sign on a business door titled, "Sorry, we're closed, but still awesome" You will NEVER see a sign like this at SERVPRO, unless you stumble upon my secret stash of kitschy closed signs under my desk.

Ah, what a question. Many people have been asking this lately, so we’re making an official blog post statement: We Don’t.

That’s right, folks! We’re open 24/7. We do not close.

You might be thinking, “But SERVPRO of North Rowan Blogwriter, how can this be? I’m pretty sure people can’t work 24/7 without rest!”

Well, you might not be able to, but we ate all our vegetables growing up, so we’re stronger than you. Also, we might take shifts.

So what does that mean? It means if you get home at 5:15pm to find out your basement flooded, you don’t have to frantically check Google Maps to see if we’re open. We are. It means if you get home at 5:30pm at find debris spread all over your above-average yard from a storm, you won’t have to try sixteen times to get Siri (or God forbid, Cortana) to check if we’re still open. We are. And finally, it means if it’s 12:30am, and you’re having nightmares and need someone to call to chat with, you don’t need to check the YellowPages to see if we’re open. We are.
