Paul Davis Franchisees Go To The Rescue Of Hurricane Harvey And Irma Victims

September 20, 2017 // // Florida and Texas - When June marked the beginning of hurricane and storm season that runs through November, Hurricane Irma slammed south Florida and beyond with Category 3 and 4 winds, rain and flooding. Now, Paul Davis offices from across the country and large loss specialists with tractor trailers and highly specialized drying and mitigation equipment have converged throughout south Florida counties, as they did with Texas and Hurricane Harvey, to assist hundreds of property owners with emergency services.

According to Gordon Berken, the Paul Davis office owner in Broward and North Miami for more than 25 years, franchise office owners and crews from throughout Florida along with Ohio, Wisconsin and beyond will provide emergency board ups, roof protection, tarps and immediate help while starting the specialized process of wind, water and soon mold damage clean up services for residential and commercial properties.

In addition to Berken’s office, Paul Davis National, the company’s large loss provider sent its semi-tractor trailers and hundreds of pieces of equipment from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, plus remote offices to the region. Jeff Goldman, Paul Davis of the Midwest office owner has transported his trucks, crews, and vast array of desiccant drying, water and mold damage equipment, plus decontamination and microbial solutions to the region. Since 1994, Goldman is renowned in the industry for his knowledge and expertise in the large loss restoration field. Paul Davis offices from Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie and Miami Dade counties are on jobs with crews and subcontractors from local areas.

With any property damage after a storm or hurricane, Berken recommends contacting a restoration professional that specializes in water damage clean up and restoration with technicians who are certified from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification. Also, Berken advises consumers to be aware of unlicensed contractors when making repairs, contact insurance companies when taking stock of Hurricane Irma damage, don’t accept price-gouging claims, and understand that the Hurricane's strike brought particular risks to the vulnerable and elderly, among many others.
