The worst of nature often brings out some of humanity’s best qualities. Diligent teamwork and neighborly support were on the forefront of recent cleanup and relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey left extensive damage on the Texas Coastal Bend.

Just days after Hurricane Harvey made initial strike, a large team of Gerloff Company’s fire and water damage restoration specialists set out to assess damage and begin restoring communities. The task at hand required a couple weeks of work, as multiple properties were restored from the damage they endured.

To accommodate the hard work of the Gerloff restoration team, Aries Residence Suites made available enough space to comfortably house more than 25 Gerloff personnel. The team stayed at the Three Rivers extended stay man camp. The comfort and privacy of the individual sleeping quarters and bathroom facilities were noted as much appreciated by the Gerloff team.

Aries is well accustomed to providing temporary housing for individuals working long, hard hours away from home, as a large part of their customer base is oil field workers. Comfort and hospitality are highly valued at Aries. The company understands the importance of having a truly comfortable, even homely, place to relax after a hard day’s work; and a hard day’s work certainly defines the efforts put forth by the Gerloff team.

Gerloff Company was quick to act, providing multiple commercial properties with water extraction services-using quality equipment and techniques to remove water from the premises and dry and restore building interiors and contents. Gerloff’s immediate response not only decreases the likelihood of long-term damage in the form of mold, mildew, etc., but also helped to ensure community business and livelihood could quickly resume.

The immediate accommodations made by Aries helped the Gerloff team’s immediate response be executed with ease and convenience. The renowned personability of the Aries staff also surely helped in keeping spirits high in a potentially stressful time. A Gerloff employee noted in an interview that the team has stayed at several different man camps in the past, and several employees stated, in comparison, that Aries is “the best one they have ever stayed at.” In true Texas spirit, the staff at Aries Three Rivers make genuine hospitality a priority.

Also in true Texas spirit, Mr. Darren Gerloff, Gerloff Company CEO, prepared food and drinks to provide to families and individuals in the affected area during the first weekend of the cleanup effort.

While nature and its fury may be unpredictable, these two companies stand prepared with consistently professional teamwork and generosity.
