ServiceMaster Restore Warns Homeowners to Practice Fire Prevention Leading up to the Holiday Season


ServiceMaster Experts Weigh In: Majority of House Fires Occur in December; Cooking Is Leading Cause

Transitioning to cooler temperatures means more time spent indoors, more home cooked meals and, unfortunately, the beginning of the most common month for house fires. ServiceMaster Restore, the leader in emergency fire and water damage cleanup and part of the ServiceMaster (NYSE: SERV) family of brands, recently polled more than 350 franchise owners across the country, revealing alarming insights about Americans' lack of preparedness when it comes to fires.

According to the 2014 ServiceMaster Restore Franchise Fire Prevention Survey, December is the most common month for house fires, with cooking as the leading cause -- making one of the happiest times of the year for homeowners also among the riskiest.

Nearly all ServiceMaster Restore franchisees (97 percent) agreed that homeowners are inadequately prepared for a cooking-related fire, with 85 percent believing that most homeowners don't even own a fire extinguisher. In fact, according to 94 percent of the experts, most homeowners don't have a fire evacuation plan in place.

Homeowners are even less prepared to deal with the aftermath of a fire, making two common costly errors. According to the survey, 86 percent of ServiceMaster experts say many homeowners attempt to clean fire-damaged areas themselves, which can cause more damage to belongings; 82 percent say homeowners discard burned items without taking an inventory of the damage, which causes them to lose valuable records of their personal property.

"Over the course of more than 50 years in business, we've seen it all when it comes to house fires," says Peter Duncanson, director of disaster restoration training for ServiceMaster. "The truth is, while every situation is different, there is one constant: People are largely unprepared to prevent or manage the aftermath of a fire."

In an effort to keep families safe this holiday season, ServiceMaster Restore is providing Americans with its expert tips to ensure that this holiday season is a safe one:  (For the complete article, please follow this link:

The little known secret in the insurance industry is that you have a choice in contractors should you experience damage to your home. It is not your insurance agent's choice. It is not your insurance adjuster's choice. It is not your insurance company's choice. It is your choice who enters your home and performs repairs for you.

ServiceMaster Advanced Cleaning and Restoration is an approved vendor for virtually all of the insurance companies that operate in our regional area. At one time or another, over nearly 30 years, we have worked with virtually every insure company that has ever written a policy here. In fact, many of them recommend us because we have been pre-qualified to work for them, meaning we are on their mitigation "program". This means that we have met their standards with regard to insurance, training, procedures etc. and that they are comfortable dispatching a claim to us, if the homeowner agrees.  This is the important stipulation. The homeowner must agree and contract directly with us. 

ServiceMaster Advanced is one of a small handful of companies locally that are approved as such. We appreciate the business that the insurance programs send to us; however out of the few that are approved as such, we want to stand alone as the best. We want to earn your business be deserving of your trust, not only, because the insurance company recommended us, but because our reputation and policies are such that you would have hired us anyway. We want to stand alone out of all of the recommended companies, that you will tell your insurance agent, company or adjuster that you want ServiceMaster Advanced Cleaning, Enterprise number 7027, (251) 653-9333, to service your home.

In Mobile, Alabama due to the tremendous amount of rain, floods and the likelihood of natural disasters such as hurricanes and tornados; there are a lot of players in the mitigation and water damage repair business. Some small companies are not approved to work with any insurance carriers, and they resort to paying plumbers for leads. They raise the price to cover this payout, and many times it is double the prevailing drying rates. Even within ServiceMaster, there is confusion as some of the telephone numbers lead to the ServiceMaster Carpet Cleaning franchise, others lead to the janitorial franchise and you could even wind up calling an inexperienced franchise who is new to the business. How can you be assured that you are getting the real ServiceMaster disaster franchise? It is simple, you save this number 653-9333.
