Work-Life Balance

SERVPRO is always Here to help®; with having an on-call employee, we are always a phone call away. As a company, we pride ourselves on respecting our employee’s family time. Whether their human family or fur babies, we understand that work can be stressful. When our employees go home, we want them to leave SERVPRO at their door. We always encourage our staff to invite their kiddos when events come up. We do this so that our employees can share these moments with their loved ones. If this kind of balance is something you are looking for, please email your resume to jbrecht@SERVPRO.me.

Fire Damage Cleanup- The Seal Coat

When fire damage affects your home or business you can depend on SERVPRO of Iowa City/Coralville to help with the cleanup process. We will come in and provide a plan of action for the cleanup. One of the items on the plan of action after removing affected materials might be to seal the structure before rebuilding begins. This seal coat locks in any residual odor that might still remain in the structure and not allow it to penetrate through that seal coat. This picture shows after we have seal coated a lower level of a residence. After this seal coat is applied reconstruction can begin.
