Thank You For the Wonderful Reviews!

A hand written letter from a customer We often receive hand written letters from our customers. It really makes our day!

We would like to take a moment and reflect on and celebrate the many, many, five star reviews we have received on Yelp this year. We are always so excited to hear of the great experiences our customers had with our team and services. Our employees have been very proactive in requesting customers to leave us positive reviews and in turn our customers have been amazingly receptive to leaving them for us.  Our customers have even taken the time to "shout out" specific employees in their reviews who went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service and our franchise began rewarding employees for being named in reviews.  It has been a very positive year for Yelp reviews for us and we are hoping to receive even more reviews as the year progresses. 

Mold Found in Your Home or Business?

6/7/2022 (Permalink)

Employees suited in personal protective equipment before mold removal Personal protective equipment is necessary when it comes to mold removal.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise mold removal and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Review card of services with all 10's "You all deserve better than 10. Great experience with all your staff." -SERVPRO customer

We love our customers and thankfully our customers love us.

We always ask our customers to complete a Certificate of Satisfaction or a COS, as we refer to them here at SERVPRO of NE San Diego. The Certificates of Satisfaction are very important to us as they allow us to review how we performed on each job.  What did we do well? What can we improve upon on the next job?

The Certificate of Satisfaction included with this blog is from a very satisfied customer we helped with some water damage in San Marcos.  Thankfully on this one it looks like there weren't any lessons to be learned or any areas where we needed to make improvements.  This customer was incredibly happy with the work we performed and even wrote "You all deserve better than 10. Great experience with all your staff," in the comments section.

We are very happy that our customer was satisfied and also very proud of our staff for providing excellent work. Your reputation is everything in the restoration industry.
