In and around Houma, there have been many emergency situations where ServiceMaster Quality Services was contracted to protect a property after a disaster. Our emergency services boarding up windows and doorways will secure your property until repairs can be made or other options can be explored.

Why Property Security Matters After Emergencies

If your home or commercial building has been compromised by fire or other situations, you are still liable for what happens on your property whether it is livable or not. If vandals come on to your property, they can cause further damage to the structure or steal your personal belongings from inside the building. If someone comes into the property and gets injured, you may be held liable in the court system for their injuries even if you are not living on the property. There are those who will take advantage of people enduring such hardships, making the situation worse. By utilizing our board up services after an emergency, you can prevent anyone from entering your home and causing additional problems.

Additional Tips for Safety After Disaster

It is important to deal with the different aspects of your property protection after an emergency situation. Here are some quick tips to keep in mind:

  • Contact your insurance company. Let your agent know exactly what has occurred and find out what they recommend.
