Neighborly®, the world’s largest franchisor of home service brands, is doing all it can to continue helping homeowners in the aftermath of the harsh winter storms wreaking havoc on countless communities across the United States.
Neighborly, based in Waco, Texas, is the parent company of 28 home service brands represented by nearly 4,500 franchise locations, all focused right now on doing their respective parts to fix the winter damage currently being inflicted on homes and businesses.
Since Monday, Neighborly brands including Mr. Rooter Plumbing, Rainbow International Restoration, Aire Serv and Mr. Electric have been responding to a significant influx in home service requests related to burst pipes, flooding damage and other emergencies caused by the weather. As the ice and snow begin to melt, Neighborly expects that even more damage will become apparent and require maintenance from its service professionals.
“Our hearts are with everyone whose homes and lives have been affected by this extreme weather,” said Mike Bidwell, President and CEO of Neighborly. “Our headquarters and many of our team members were hit hard as well, so we know the severity of damage spanning the southern region. It’s in times like these that our home services are truly essential, and we’re proud to be able to provide some relief wherever we can as we all navigate these serious conditions.”
