ServiceMaster by Critical Case Studies: Water Heater Line Break in Earp, CA

Homeowners lost their living room, dining room and bedroom furniture. ServiceMaster A Plus Restore was there to help client with water damage removal, demolition, and repairs to the entire home.
ServiceMaster had to remove 2 feet of all the bottom of the interior walls, flooring, and kitchen cabinets as well as remove all the furniture and belongings. Project took a week to complete, with a full staff at the clients home. People in and out, trucks and cars delivering material and supplies, and the project went on with out a snag.
