The Technology Sets Us a Part When Performing Mitigation Work

5/24/2019 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Iowa City / Coralville we are using the latest in technology to help us perform mitigation services.

Moisture mapping technology is used to give you the best options available to get you back to "Like it never even happened."

We also do in house training on a regular basis to keep even our senior technicians fresh in the field. We look to organizations such as the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and Restoration Sciences Academy to learn proven techniques that work.

Our biggest piece that sets us apart would be our detailed moisture mapping, documentation, and thorough inventory processes. We have great people who make these things work behind the scenes and it makes the difference if you were to compare. See more by visiting https://tinyurl.com/y42okayc

We Believe Training Is Vital To Success In Restoration

10/26/2018 (Permalink)

Members of our team recently received training from our Program Coordinator, Nita.  Training is vital in our industry. Things are constantly changing. Our team needs to stay up on the newest technology as well as the newest information and requirements from insurance companies. She trained on the use of our proprietary software program that we utilize in the field to collect and record data in regards to clients losses. This information forms the story of the loss for insurance companies and the client for documentation. It is vital to record the information in regards to affected materials and the process of restoring the affected materials. Our team has weekly Monday production meetings to go over any thing of importance but we also do more in depth trainings like these as needed to keep us up to date on information and well informed to make sure we are always ready to help our clients with the most up to date information.
