MEMPHIS, TN - (Marketwired - October 07, 2016) - With Hurricane Matthew wreaking havoc on Haiti and quickly making its way to U.S. landfall, the disaster restoration experts at ServiceMaster Restore share important resources and tips for home and business owners to keep in mind immediately following the storm.
"Many people evacuated with little time to prepare their homes, and some have been sheltering in place. Regardless, it's important to know what to do when you have to face the damage," said Peter Duncanson, director of system development with ServiceMaster Restore, one of the largest disaster restoration companies in the United States and a ServiceMaster (NYSE:SERV) company.
One of the best resources, he says, is the American Red Cross Emergency app, which is proudly sponsored by ServiceMaster. The free app provides expert advice on what to do before, during and after a range of disasters. To download, text "GETEMERGENCY" to 90999, search "American Red Cross" in the app store or go to redcross.org/apps.
With years of experience responding to hurricanes and other natural disasters, Duncanson says ServiceMaster Restore franchises are equipped to guide home and business owners through the restoration process. "We know how devastating hurricane damage is and we want to arm home and business owners with the information they need to navigate what could be a very costly and dangerous situation," he said.
