Water Damage Emergency! 

Call SERVPRO of Marine City / Romeo (586)336-7373

 After any water devastation, safety should be your priority:

  • Is it safe to be in your home?
  • Is the source of water shut off?
  • Are there any electrical and "slip and fall" dangers? (As they are some of the biggest concerns.)

Only after these safety questions are answered can the removal of water and damage be addressed and prioritized.

Even the smallest amount of water damage can cause serious structural damage and compromise the quality of the air. In order to escape future restoration, it is crucial to treat any size water issue as a hazard. SERVPRO of Marine City / Romeo can be contacted 24/7 and respond within an hour to your call. Our trained technicians will answer your questions and ensure the proper drying is started. They will monitor and restore your water-damaged property to new, “Like it never even happened."
