Our SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville  family takes great pride in helping our customers recover from fire, water and mold damage. Needless to say we were very happy to receive a thank you note from a customer we worked with over a year ago.

Later that morning we sat at the family dining room table to discuss the challenges that lie ahead. The smell of fire was still on their clothes and in the air.  Our team is trained to treat our customers like family. That morning, we became family.  Fire damage to a family home or business can be a very dramatic event.
