We’ve said goodbye to 2014, and hello to a new year. For many, a new year brings new changes. At ServiceMaster by Rice, we think change can be a great thing, especially when those changes mean improving aspects of your home. We offer a wide variety of home restoration services that we will highlight in both this week and next weeks blog posts. If you realize that you need assistance with any of the services we mention, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Water & Flood Damage

At ServiceMaster by Rice, we understand that every single type of water damage is unique. It doesn’t matter if your water damage was caused by a natural disaster such as a flood or from a pipe exploding in your basement, we can fix it for you.

When you experience water damage we will first identify the source of the problem and look at the damage. The next step is evaluating your carpeting and flooring. We look at the condition of the damaged carpeting and flooring and find the best way to treat it. Your walls, ceiling, and cabinets get evaluated as well. Sometimes you may need part of your wall or cabinets removed to ensure it gets properly treated. Finally, we do a thorough drying of the entire area. This happens after the source of the water has been removed and everything that is salvageable is saved.

Fire Repair

A fire occurring in your home can be a scary thing, and cleaning up after your loss may be one of the last things you want to think about once one happens. After a fire strikes, let ServiceMaster by Rice handle the cleanup. We’ll do the entire fire repair process ranging from assessing fire and smoke damage all the way to controlling the odor in your home. We have worked on large fire losses, repairing structural damage, cleaning up water and smoke damage, and more. When a fire happens in your home, you can’t go wrong having our experienced professionals clean it up for you.
