Hundreds of books being packed away into boxes in a library SERVPRO of Springfield / Greene County recently packed out hundreds of books in a local library that was damaged by water during a Polar Vortex

When water damage happens, you must react quickly to protect the structural integrity plus the contents of the building.  In the case of a library the sheer number of contents that have been damaged can be stressful and overwhelming to the library staff.  To compound that stress, the longer the water is present the more hazardous conditions can become for the staff and the more damage can be spread destroying the many books, magazines, electronics and many other resources.  This is why choosing the right restoration professionals for a water damage this size is so important. SERVPRO of Springfield / Greene County has the expertise and tools to get the job done.  Our team has dried out and restored several libraries in the southwest Missouri area and most recently during the polar vortex helped a local library quickly pack out, and remove hundreds of books, magazines amongst many other paper materials, and also get the job drying to mitigate further damage to their library itself. We were able to save hundreds of books by our quick action. 

It is vital for your southwest Missouri library to have a plan in place to be prepared for a water damage emergency.  By developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY  Profile for your library or business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action.
