Helping People Recover
Helping people recover from fire damage, storm damage, water intrusion, and other unforeseen property catastrophes is highly rewarding work. The horror of a natural disaster, the unpredictable property mishaps that happen in home and business, the immediate summons of rapid response to prevent further damage and costly delays, the challenge of facing new situations daily, the opportunity to roll up your sleeves, get your boots dirty, and the therapy of good, honest work are motivating and exciting.
Flexibility is Vital to a Building a Successful Restoration Team
Compleat Restorations is a 7 days a week, 365 days per year company with a proven response time of 2 hours or less. Restoration workers agree to an on-call rotation schedule that includes holidays, weekends, and all hours of the night. Moreover, a large loss or catastrophic weather event requires “all hands on deck” including leadership and administrative staff – everyone gets involved to help get folks back to normal life and business as quickly as possible; it’s a team effort.
Willingness to Learn the Science of Smoke Restoration and Water Damage Dryout
In addition to a strong work ethic, this industry demands a scientific approach to water damage mitigation and fire damage restoration. Becoming a restoration expert requires specialized training and certification through IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification). Just as certified accountants, plumbers, and mechanics project a higher level of competency in their fields, and just as members of the American Medical Association and American Bar Association set themselves apart through training, experience, and comprehensive examination — IICRC certification helps to immediately identify the cleaning, restoration and inspection industry’s most skilled and dedicated technicians and businesses.
