Veteran's Day 2017
We would like to thank all who have served in our armed forces. We send our prayers out to those who gave their lives for our great nation. Without the men and women who have served we would not have many of our freedoms we enjoy today as a nation. We know that as a nation we may seem divided , but when we have issues or disagreements we will make it due to our resilience as American's. Please , when you see a veteran this year, don't just walk by but thank them for their service. They served proudly under any administration. Even if we have disagreed with our current or past commander in chief, the men and women of our armed forces who served so proudly. To our Veterans, from our family , we salute you and thank you for those who sacrificed for us.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN 2017
We would like to wish from our family to yours a safe and productive Halloween. With all of the people out on the streets we urge from a parent to another please drive carefully. Also wear reflective materials so that others can see you. We recommend the color SERVPRO green. It is bright and very noticeable this time of year. Also don't forget that it is starting to get a little colder. Please make sure that you stay warm. Those pipes could freeze and you could have a serious water damage. These types of problems tend to happen when we least expect it and when we are having fun. If you do encounter a problem please don't forget to call the company that makes it "Like it never even happened."
We would like to wish everybody a happy and safe Nevada Day Celebration. SERVPRO of Reno Southwest will still be open. We will be handing out candy to anybody who wants to show up during our actual state birthday, October Thirty-first. Please drive carefully on the roads because there will be plenty of kids and parents out on the streets. Please drive thru neighborhoods. Treat it as if it is your kids out there trying to get their fill of their favorite candies. We are here to help if any disasters occur while we celebrate our wonderful states birthday. For many it will be a 3 day weekend and please keep the roads safe. If any issues arise over the weekend please call with any questions.
2017 World Series
In celebrating America's pastime between the Houston Astros and the LA Dodgers, Taco Bell, has promised to give FREE Tacos to everybody if a player has a stolen base. In last nights game, Cameron Maybin, had the series' first stolen base. We have attached a link to Taco Bells twitter feed about their giveaway!!!! Enjoy!!
Congratulations to the Houston Astros. This is their first World Series title in franchise history. This was a great series that played all the way to the 7th game. Hats off to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a well played series. It could have gone either way. Fortunately for the Astros more went their way. The last 2 years we have enjoyed baseball a its finest where the series goes to the 7th game. I'm looking forward to 2018.
The Story of Labor Day
Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and began as a tribute to workers who have allowed the United States to proper. At first it was a holiday adopted state by state. Over time the celebration began to catch nationwide and, in 1894, Labor Day was approved as a national holiday to be observed on the first Monday of every September.
There is some dispute as to who is truly the father of Labor Day. Traditionally it was attributed to Peter J. McGuire, a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor. However, historians in recent years believe a New York Central Union secretary named Matthew Maguire could have come up with Labor Day first.
McGuire or Maguire, it is still a great holiday celebrating workers of this United States!
Have a wonderful Labor Day and celebrate your right to this day off with family and friends.

I would like to thank all of the emergency personnel who helped in controlling the Prater fire as well as all of the police officers that kept everybody safe and away from the fire. Many of us live in the area and had to evacuate along with our neighbors. If anybody in the area needs any assistance or has any questions as to whether they need our services please feel free to call and we can assess the damages and then make any necessary recommendations. Also contact your insurance agent to ask any questions. They are well equipped to answer your questions. Please continue to be safe out there during the next few days because we are still experiencing thunder storms. As usual we will make it "Like it never even happened"
As we have been pushed into a hot, hot hot summer season we must remember that there is quite a bit of cheat grass that has grown due to our wet winter. Anything can ignite it and can cause serious damage to our area. We have the Earthstone fire, which is believed to be caused by man, Winnemucca Ranch fire, cause unknown and several others in neighboring areas. Please be careful out there. If you are going caming please make sure you take proper precautions to turn off the camp fire. If you do smoke please make sure you turn off your cigarette butts. Please do not use fire works due to our hot weather and high winds. We all live in the area and we would like to make sure that nobodies home, pets or self is put in any danger. Thanks again and if there is any smoke or fire damage please call the team that can make it "Like it never even happened."
Here is another great example of our work from our staff:
"Your staff was so efficient and organized. I can not praise them too highly. They came when they said they would, they called when they said they would. They were incredible representatives of your company, especially Robert Harrison, crew chief."
This brings smiles to our franchise that another customer is happy with our work. This also just shows how much our employees will treat your home is if it is their own. It is also great that our office staff cares about our clients like family. Thanks again for all of the hard from the office, field techs and all the way to the crew chiefs who lead the way at the front lines of your personal home. Thanks again for the letter Jane and if anybody needs us to make it "Like it never even happened" do not hesitate to call.
2017 Memorial Day
We would like to thank all of our men and women who are currently serving. We would like to thank the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation. Without these individuals who have given their life, my family, would not have an opportunity to live in this country. If you are out this weekend please remind yourself that this weekend is not about sales or an extended weekend so we can have a barbecue. Please stop for a few minutes to remember the men and women that have given their life so that we can be in a free nation. Without their work our nation would be a different place. Without our countries support of the military they cannot survive. Please if you can donate your services, products or time to a special veterans group that is near and dear to your heart. Have a blessed weekend!!
We would like to thank all of the women in our lives who we would consider Mother's. Have a blessed weekend and please enjoy your special day. We would also like to say thank you to everybody who runs, walks, sponsors or volunteers at the Mom's on the Run. I would like to say thank you. My own Mom lost her battle last year to breast cancer. Without organizations like Mom's on the Run her life would have been cut shorter. Thank you again to all of our special ladies in our life. They put up with our good and bad days. They also help us when we need them most. Please make sure that you make them feel special because they are. Remind them of how important they are and how vital they are to your life.
