Highly Trained Restoration Specialists

Abraham Lincoln famously said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the ax.”

SERVPRO of Northwest St. Louis County believes in a highly trained team. We believe the credibility of our name comes down to the skills of our team. To mitigate homes in St. Louis, or surrounding areas like Maryland Heights or Chesterfield, from water, fire or mold damage, you need people, talented people, who know what they’re doing. 

For this reason our staff is trained in property damage restoration, both residential and commercial. 

Our technicians receive training from SERVPRO corporate offices where they have a highly technical training academy. During a technicians time in training they’ll work on their IICRC industry certifications in Water Damage Restoration Technician, Applied Structural Drying, Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician and Commercial Drying Specialist. 

It’s our aim to be the best and most trained in the industry and we work hard to maintain that standard with all our employees.
