Customer Reviews

"We found the service to be excellent. They took care of everything all we did was pick up the cleaned items they could salvage. They also worked with the insurance company. We had lost our apartment to fire damage and with ServiceMaster we didn't have to worry because between ServiceMaster and the insurance company everything was taken care of. We would most certainly recommend them."  - E. Clarke


"Chris O'Dwyer was awesome as the lead on my job and his trades were professional, on-time, courteous and did a great job. I needed the work done in a very tight time frame and the ServiceMaster team delivered. I couldn't be happier."  - M. Milovick


"Awesome friendly & efficient restoration workers during clean up as well as office staff who treated you and your 'disaster' as top priority." - J. Gibson
