Storm Season Northern Midwest
As Midwesterners, we are accustomed to subzero temps, nasty snowstorms and blizzards, the occasional
ice storm, or my favorite, the “wintery mix” (insert sarcasm here). I had no idea so I googled “what
months average the most snow in Iowa?” As a born and raised North-Iowan I already knew the answer
but figured what the heck. Just as I suspected the second half of January and into February annually
yield the most snow. It seems nowadays that we have become somewhat reactionary versus proactive.
We go, go, go and sometimes miss the easy preparation that could’ve ultimately thwarted off disaster.
From strengthening the den roof to keeping snow weight from caving in the roof to wrapping and
insulating pipes we’ve had trouble within the past, things get missed. It’s ok though SERVPRO has your
back. We have teams that are built just for this. We fill the gas tanks in our service vehicles every night
just in case our on-call service technicians need to jet out at 3:00 a.m. to extract water from broken
frozen pipes. We have our shelves stacked with the most up-to-date tools and technology to assist in the
moment of need. That 50-year blizzard rolls through and caves in the roof of your man cave or she-shed,
no problem. We have the most powerful and efficient generators that are made to be able to assist with
powering lights or generating heat. We have everything covered so rest easy and remember, SERVPRO
has your back.
And for the cherry on top, you ask?!? We have a 1-4-8 response motto. Meaning you say?
Within one hour of a service call to our 24/7/365 dispatch, you will have a callback. Within four hours of
the initial call for help, we’ll have a team together and on our way. Within eight hours the team will be to
your disaster working hard to return your life to “Like it never even happened."
