This past week has been filled with flash flooding, and water occupying basements in the Chicago-land area. Life has been a bit crazy to say the least. The rain began Thursday night, and didn’t let up all weekend. We had our service technicians and plumbers working around the clock Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and even Monday. It has been a busy time, but a successful time for Duane Blanton Plumbing, and all of our customers. It gave our company a great opportunity to challenge ourselves both mentally and physically.
The most important thing has been helping hundreds of families when they needed us the most. The greatest reward felt was the positive reviews, and happy phone call’s our office has received over the past few days. In the month when rain falls most frequently, it has fallen in record fashion in 2013. Chicago has experienced 8.5 inches of rain this month alone. 8.5 inches of rain is equivalent to 40 inches of snow. On Thursday April 18, 2013 Oak Brook, Illinois had a 24 hour rain total of 6.7 inches alone. It’s affected driving conditions, basements, outdoor events, and heavily impacted surrounding bodies of water. If an emergency situation like this arises again, we know we can take it on.
Thank you to all of our customers for your continued support, and for our new customers we hope to see you next time a problem arises. For use in the future call us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 847-855-0000.
