Removal of wet insulation and material affected in the ceiling due to water damage.

Why SERVPRO? Well for a good reason and that is that we provide our employees with the highest level of water, Fire, Mold and Sewage Restoration Training.

For example: Two of our production technicians, Russ and George, spent a week at an IICRC training course. In this course, the guys received specific training in mold and sewage remediation.  The course covered topics such as containment planning and strategies, microbiology basics, respiratory protection, bird and bat droppings, biocide uses, how to safely work in confined spaces, sampling and more.  

It may not sound like fun to most people, but they came back from the course excited about the new information they learned.
