What ServiceMaster Wants You to Know About Disaster Restoration Services

June 14, 2016

Nobody wants to incur loss due to an unexpected crisis.  Whether it’s a flood, fire, or rodents, ServiceMaster Quality Services is professionally equipped to manage damage control. 

Composure becomes compromised leaving victims of flood, fire, and rodent infestations, stressing over what their next course of action will be. One of the most important benefits of partnering with ServiceMaster is our commitment to provide “peace of mind” to our customers. We promise to do what we can to renew, restore, and protect your home or business.


If you need disaster restoration services — and we hope that you don’t — but if you do, here’s what you need to know first:

Clean-up after water damage – Rain is falling out of the sky and is causing major flooding. The sand bags that were strategically placed to prevent water from rushing in are now washed away.  Water begins to pour through cracks and crevices that you were not aware of until it began to rain. You’ve returned from a long vacation. After unlocking and opening the door, you find yourself dismayed to discover the inside of your home or business resembling a swamp. Was that a crocodile that just swam by? If this water is not removed in a timely manner, the next problem you will encounter will be mold.  

Clean-up after smoke damage – Fires keep you warm when contained. But when out of control, fire brings devastating loss. Whatever is not burned and destroyed is subject to damage from the smoke. ServiceMaster Quality Services professionals are certified and trained in smoke and odor control. Time is of the absolute essence. The sooner you reach out to us the sooner we can get to work. Just how much of your home or business establishment is salvageable? Probably a lot more than you think. But if the smoke, soot, and foul odor is not cleaned within a certain period of time — usually just a few days — the odds of what we save will greatly diminish.

Clean-up after a rodent infestation – After that last rodent is finally caught and removed, and the pest control specialist has departed, there still remains a lot of work to do. It is imperative that all rodent droppings be vacuumed up. Anything contaminated with urine, sanitized or removed. Seek out nesting material, such as torn bits of paper and insulation, and throw this stuff in the dumpster. If immediate action is not taken, a new colony of rodents, with their excellent sense of smell, are liable to sniff their way back to the place of your last infestation. Remove every last bit of contaminated material, no matter what it is, to ensure another infestation does not happen. Please do not attempt to clean up after a rodent infestation. ServiceMaster professionals are experts at this type of clean-up. Our technicians will arrive with protective equipment such as gloves, respirator, and bio-hazard suits.    

With state of the art equipment, and highly trained and caring technicians, ServiceMaster Quality Services can be on site within a matter of hours of being notified of your loss. We will provide a free detailed inspection and evaluate your particular disaster to determine an action plan specific to your need. 

Why wait for disaster before you make that call? We offer several cleaning packages designed to meet a variety of needs — from a simple cleaning program to a full property deep clean.
