At SERVPRO® of Panthersville, our commitment to the community though our charitable donations is as important as providing emergency cleaning and restoration services for twenty four hours a day. We want to be judged not only by the service we provide, but also for what we do to improve the quality of life for all people in the places where we live, work, and nationwide.

Our charitable donations include organizations that benefit Veterans, African Americans, Firefighters, and individuals who suffer from Autism, Alzheimer's, and Breast Cancer illnesses. The company's Management Team also participates in local walks in honor of Autism, Alzheimer's, and Breast Cancer patients, and we volunteer service with the American Red Cross for their Home Fire Campaign by installing smoke detectors in people's homes.

SERVPRO® of Panthersville Mentors Other Small Business Owners

Having a Mentor to help guide you can increase your probabilities of success. Mentors cannot make decisions for you; that is your job. But their expertise can be invaluable. Generally, they work with business owners voluntarily, that is, for the satisfaction of helping out.

SERVPRO® of Panthersville shares our professional skills with other small businesses to help them grow and create jobs. More often, Restoration Owners and Managers are so busy in their daily operations that they fail to notice and react properly to changes taking place around them. As a Mentor, we search for other entrepreneurs in the Restoration business to assist online, and once connected we serve as a coach and guide. This volunteer opportunity is extremely flexible. Subsequently, we set the schedules and expectations with our Mentees.

SERVPRO® of Panthersville participates as a volunteer for the American Red Cross in their Home Fire Campaign, wherein the goal is to reduce the number of fire-related deaths and injuries in the US by 25% by the year 2020. The American Red Cross responds to approximately 64,000 disasters annually, in which the vast majority of them are home fires. Statistics reveals the following occurrences:

  • Seven (7) people die daily from home fires wherein most of them impact children and the elderly.
  • Thirty six (36) people suffer injuries as a result of home fires daily.
  • Over $7 billion in property damages occur annually.

Home Fire Preparedness

Household members should comply with the following instructions to be thoroughly prepared for home fires:

  1. Install the correct number of smoke alarms. Test them once monthly and replace the batteries at least once annually. If the American Red Cross provides the smoke alarm through its Home Fire Campaign, then it uses a lithium battery in which it will last for ten (10) years.
  2. Teach children the sound of smoke alarms and what they should do when they hear one.
  3. Ensure that all household members know two ways to escape from every room of your home and know the family meeting spot outside of your home.
  4. Establish a family emergency communication plan and ensure that all household members know who to contact if they cannot find each another.
  5. Practice to escape from your home at least twice annually. Press the smoke alarm test button or shout “Fire!“ to alert everyone in your home that they must evacuate within 2 minutes.
  6. Ensure that everyone knows how to call 9-1-1.
  7. Teach household members to STOP, DROP, and ROLL if their clothes catch on fire.
