Meet the Fleet

Whether an adjuster on their way to give a job estimate, or our crew members in transit to extract water from a flooded home, our bright green trucks and vans donned with the orange SERVPRO logo are hard to miss amidst daily traffic. These easily-identifiable vehicles help us get to you as quickly and safely as possible, whenever and wherever you need our assistance. 

Our sizable box trucks are essential in transporting drying and dehumidification equipment to-and-from jobsites by our helpful crew members. These spacious vehicles not only allow us to remove and dispose of damaged materials or waste, but also aide in transferring furniture or other belongings from the site and back to our warehouse, where they will be cleaned and stored. The interior of our vehicles are cleaned and organized regularly to ensure that your possessions are safely transported and well-taken care of.

Tools Of The Trade

Air Movers Our large supply of air movers allows use to take on multiple jobs at once.

Here at SERVPRO, we use a variety of tools and equipment to help us do our jobs in the best way possible. From demolition to disinfecting to drying out structures, we always have what we need. When it comes to equipment, the two most important pieces are dehumidifiers and air movers. These are used on every single water job we do. It is imperative that the structure is properly dried out by the dehumidifiers and air movers before any reconstruction can take place. On category 3 jobs, we may use an air scrubber in addition to the dehumidifiers and air movers. The air scrubber will help filter the air and eliminate airborne microorganisms. Some other pieces of equipment we might use are hydroxyls, ozone machines, ULV foggers, floor drying mats, or HEPA Vacuums. The equipment that is used on a given job varies by the details and scope of the work to be performed.

SERVPRO of Evanston | All 10's

7/6/2016 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Evanston Customer Satisfaction Survey completed on June 27th.

Whether it is Fire, Water, Mold, Biohazard, or Odor, any delay in starting the restoration process can lead to additional/secondary damage, as well as extra expense for the property owner.  As such, SERVPRO prides itself on being “Faster to Any Size Disaster.”

But there is certainly much more to disaster restoration than simply showing up quickly.  Once we are on-scene, we make it our mission to treat each and every property (home and/or business) as if it were our own.  We know that our customers are allowing us access to what is probably their most valuable asset and we treat it as such.

One look through our files shows that our customers seem to appreciate our efforts. 

From the office staff, to the crews in the field, our goal on every job is the coveted “All 10’s,” which is a Customer Satisfaction Survey where every item is rated as “Strongly Agree.”  Perfection doesn’t always happen, but as the old saying goes, “Shoot for the stars, and at least you will hit the ceiling.”  Or in our case, shoot for perfection, and at least every customer will be happy they called SERVPRO.

When you have a need for restoration services, call SERVPRO of Evanston, anytime, 24/7, @ 847.763.1541.
