Allow SERVPRO to Gently Restore Your Crime Scene Property

Did you know that your homeowner's or commercial insurance will pay for weather-related damages to your home? But, did you know that it will also cover a meteor falling from the sky onto your home or some other space junk? Interestingly, look at your policy because you may also be covered in the case of a grisly crime scene. When you watch TV, you often see people whose job it is to clean up crime scenes. Well, who pays for that? If a crime occurred in your home or office, your policy might likely cover the remediation clean up services.

Crime scene cleanup is a service that we don't think about until we have to.
