Pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins. We had a huge turnout for this year’s SERVPRO Spooks It Forward county wide pumpkin decorating contest.

From insurance offices, to realtors, to city officials: our pumpkin contest raised a lot of money and awareness for local charities in the community. The winner this year was from Chad Smallwood’s State Farm Office. Their pumpkin got over 300 Facebook likes surpassing the competition. SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties donated $200 to the Pulaski County Animal Shelter in honor of the winning office! The winners also got a Thanksgiving style lunch for their office.

SERVPRO has come full circle –the grocery store effect.
A look at our Commercial fire damage at the Kroger in Somerset, Kentucky. We cleaned and removed smoke and soot damaged items and areas.
On a recent trip to Birmingham, our marketing team got to meet with Stan Richardson. Stan spoke of SERVPRO’s first ever commercial job. A grocery store in their previous placement in Alabama had caught fire and needed remediation fast. Stan and the SERVPRO team had never done commercial work before so it was a completely new experience. Stan got a team together, and they cleaned the fire up within ten days of the initial first notice of loss.
Now, fast forward more than twenty years later, and SERVPRO completes some of the biggest commercial jobs in the restoration field. We travel far and wide sometimes for commercial work, but we are most proud when we can help our local communities. SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties partnered with another local SERVPRO and completed a fire job in Somerset, Kentucky recently. And, what are the odds, it was a grocery store. SERVPRO has come a long way from the first commercial job, but the motto has always been the same. Whether it’s Somerset, London, or even Birmingham, Alabama; we are here to make your disasters “Like it never even happened.”
