Taking care of your belongings

5/13/2020 (Permalink)

Here at SERVPRO we like to take care of our belongs.  Just as if you get a new house or car or whatever kind of exciting new possession usually you’ll take care of it, maybe clean it constantly or if you’re like me make sure its always looking the way it was when you bought it and organized.  Just like you’d take care of these necessities SERVPRO does the same for its equipment, vans and the office.  Having our vans cleaned up, organized and ready help for a smooth and fast process.  It’s the worst when you get out on-site and you can’t find any of your tools or the equipment isn’t cleaned properly so you end up calling the production manager to get a piece of equipment.  When your belongings aren’t taken care of time on job is wasted and when time is wasted then customers do not feel safe or confident in our work.
