Faster To Any Size Disaster
24 Hour Emergency Service
SERVPRO of Billings is locally owned and operated by Steven Hanlin.
Water and fire damage, both large and small, requires a fast response. That fast response is what SERVPRO is known for, and it’s our competitive advantage. Our motto nationally is “Faster to Any Size Disaster.” We use that phrase to caption our culture of response and to describe what we do. Companies throughout the country will use mottos or slogans to capture what they feel is their unique contribution to their industry. Sometimes these mottos ring true, sometimes they don’t. Steven takes this motto seriously.
Responding quickly is an important core value of what we do because we’re serving our neighbors and friends, people who live in Billings, Laurel and Broadview, among other areas. Disasters, like serious water damage and fire damage or mold, do not wait for what we like to call, “convenient times;” for that reason, we’re prepared to respond in the gaps.
