Ikea store under water, Jarvis emergency services deployed

All across the Southeastern Michigan, television and print media have been reporting today that Ikea in Canton is closed due to flooding. Jarvis Property Restoration responded to help with water damage restoration. Emergencies are never planned, and retail stores can ill afford to close their doors, especially during peak holiday season. Unfortunately customers who visited the Metro Detroit area Ikea learned today that the store would likely be closed for at least the next twenty four hours.
