Some homeowners prefer to be home to meet their service staff and answer any questions they may have.

will I always have the same service person?
 We make every effort to send the same staff members each time. Occasionally there might be a change in the staff members due to illness, day off, vacation or they may no longer work for us. Therefore, it is not possible for us to guarantee the same individuals for each service. In the event of such an occurrence we will find the best replacement to fit your needs. This is one of the reasons we like feedback. Not only do we need to know how our staff member is/are doing, but what your specific needs are. We provide an extensive training program to each of our service technician to ensure consistent techniques.
