SERVPRO of Barrington/North Schaumburg Pins Storm Damage to the Mat

Not Surprising, but Never Boring

We (the owners/operators and employees of SERVPRO® of Barrington/North Schaumburg) are all happy to live in or near Hoffman Estates, and we’ve been here a long time. If someone were to ask any of us about a memorable storm, we’d each have a difficult time coming up with one – not because there are no options, but that there are so darned many.

Storms are exciting to watch, especially from indoors and without fear that the damage will hit your home or business.

So far this year, we’ve seen

  • Tornado warnings
  • Derechos
  • Severe windstorms not quite tough enough to be derechos
  • Heavy rains
  • Lightning
  • Major storms

Some of these storms have resulted in flooding or other water damage, torn-up structures, and ruined roofs.

That’s what we mean by “not surprising, but never boring”. We expect storms and hope they cause no damage, and we always find them exciting to watch --  except when they do cause damage, in which case excitement turns into dismay.

When Storms Strike, Call the Professionals

Call us: SERVPRO of Barrington/North Schaumburg at 847-526-0090.

Emergency services are available 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, 52 weeks/year. Disasters strike anytime. We’re ready to help restore your home or business anytime.

Unlike storms themselves, storm damage does not go away with time. Water damage lasts long after the water has dried, and because the moisture allows mold or other microbial growth to flourish, the damage just gets worse.

We are leaders in remediation and restoration.
