Highly Trained Restoration Specialists

When it comes to choosing the right emergency restoration company, the employees matter. At every job our reputation is on the line. Our customers will walk away with a memory of our team, that's either a good memory, or a bad one. The difference between good experiences and bad experiences are the technicians. Were they professionals who knew what they were doing, or was their work sloppy and their word unreliable?

Again, team matters, culture matters.

At SERVPRO of La Mirada / South Whittier we are committed to maintaining a culture of excellence, in the way we handle ourselves and in the work we do. Our technicians come through three different pathways: we RAISE them, we TRAIN them, and we EMPLOY them.

Our technicians are trained and certified through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, known commonly as the IICRC. We also pursue training through employee certification, initial franchise training, e-Learnings and continuing education courses. 

You can learn more about our team by visiting the about us and employee sections of our website.
