Hilton Head, SC; 28, October 2016: In the wake of the devastation left behind by Hurricane Matthew, ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba deployed part of their flood damage restoration team to the Carolinas to begin assisting local hotels, businesses and homeowners in their recovery efforts. The Chicago-based water damage restoration company started working on October 10th in North Carolina, and they've migrated their operations to Hilton Head and the surrounding South Carolina region as of October 16th. Their experience in water damage restoration is greatly helping the overwhelmed residents of North and South Carolina get their lives back together much sooner.
Recent reports from The Weather Channel noted that in North Carolina alone, "14,000 residents have registered for federal aid" as rivers continue to rise after the hurricane left, flooding many major highways and homes across the state. The devastation is massive since the flood waters forced 3,400 people into 43 North Carolina shelters, as Governor Pat McCrory stated in a press conference last week. The local authorities have been struggling greatly to help everyone affected by the hurricane recover from their losses. As flood-cleanup work is a main specialty of ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba, they felt moved to do what they can to help out. They even partnered with another local Chicago franchise, ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons, to make a greater impact.
Director of Operations Neil Zabadneh said that the crew drove nearly 1,000 miles from their headquarters to be part of the flood-relief efforts simply because:
"Weather can be unpredictable, and you never know when disaster can strike. It’s our duty to step in and help those in need. Seeing people get back to their homes or business means the world to us.”
The flood victims in Hilton Head have been more than grateful for the additional support in water damage restoration. One resident commented:
"Neil and his team have been working around the clock to repair my water-damaged hotel. I’m so fortunate we were able to resume operations this week.”
Thankfully, ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba is more than equipped to tackle the cleanup efforts because they deal with full restorations after disasters on a regular basis back in Chicago, projects that go well beyond residential damages. They have time-tested management tactics when it comes to handling disasters in high-rise buildings, hotels, healthcare institutions, restaurants, educational facilities and religious organizations. This hardworking team of professionals will return to Chicago soon, but only after the community needs for flood damage restoration have subsided and the local restoration companies are no longer overwhelmed with work.
