Highly Trained Restoration Specialists

There is a direct connection between training, quality of work and customer satisfaction. 

In any industry "hackers" exist — and by hacker we mean those who act out of ignorance rather than precision. A hacker has watched a video or knows enough about restoration work to be dangerous — but this isn't skill and no one in need of emergency restoration services should have to entrust their property to a "hacker."

Our team members are not "hackers," they're skilled technicians with experience and training. We understand that the credibility of our name is on the line every time we respond to a new project. In these moments, whether responding to water and fire damage or some professional cleaning need, training and skill makes the difference.

To mitigate and restore properties in Rhode Island you need talented and trained people who know what they’re doing — this is our team. Our technicians receive training from the SERVPRO corporate offices where they have a technical training academy. During a technicians time in training they’ll work on their IICRC industry certifications in Water Damage Restoration, Applied Structural Drying, Fire and Smoke Restoration and Commercial Drying.
