No matter what state you live in, there is bound to be a type of disaster to hit you. Weather is so unpredictable that we never know what to expect until we are in the thick of that situation.

Here at SERVPRO of Gig Harbor/North Tacoma and SERVPRO of Mason County, we believe in providing all the needed information to you in hopes it helps in disastrous circumstances.

Next week, May 10-14 is Hurricane Preparedness Week. Our social media accounts will be giving you some tips on how to prepare for a storm in your area. Here on this blog, you get early access to that information.
