“Very efficient, very effective. They were doing cleaning after a fire. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“We had water damage in the basement, and they cleaned it up. They came right in, and they got the fans going and cleaned it up really quickly, and they were very neat about it. I would give ServiceMaster an A.”

Review by

“It was just routine maintenance. They were just very knowledgeable, very prompt, and just got the job done, in and out. It's definitely an A.”

“They just did a clean up. They are very nice. The crew are very nice. It's very positive. It's excellent.”

Review by
05/31/2017

“ServiceMaster cleaned up water damage, and they ended up having to take a ceiling out and had a bunch of fans and stuff going, dehumidifiers. The guys on site kept in constant contact because we didn't know exactly where the water was coming from. We thought it was coming from one location—it ended up not being that—and they checked in all the time, and they made sure they came down. They went to take out the equipment, and they realized that it was too soon to take it out, so they left it, and they always explained everything. I'd give them an A”

Review by
05/31/2017

“They moved out furniture and small properties, so that my house could be repaired after a fire. They came promptly, they knew exactly what to do, they were very helpful, and when I had another need because I had also scheduled to have new windows put in, they moved things around and covered them up so that could all happen as scheduled. They were friendly and helpful, and they did not need a lot of direction. After all, they knew more about it than I did. I'd give them an A”

Review by
05/31/2017

“They were great. I had a little water leak in my basement. They dried it out and replaced the carpet. They did what I asked them to do. They did a really good job. They were easy to work with, they came really quickly, and they finished it—because it was water you want it out of there as quick as possible, so they were very quick. I'd give them an A”

Review by
05/31/2017

“They're pretty good. They cleaned the apartments out. It was exposed to smoke and water damage. They were pretty professional. They did the job. They cleaned everything up. There was no water in the building; there was no electricity. They had a hard time doing what they had to do. They were very good. They did a very good job. A across the board.”

Review by
05/31/2017

“They did a major cleaning after a fire. They were all over my house, and they were all very pleasant, and they did a very thorough job. They were just really polite, and when you have people in your home in every room, cleaning, it matters what they're like, and they were just really good, nice, hardworking people. It's an A”

Review by
05/31/2017

“I haven't had any problem with ServiceMaster at all. They did everything—cleaning, vacuuming, storage, packaging. They were pleasant. They took careful wrapping packaging and storage and stuff like that—haven't had any problems with them. I would rate Service Master an A.”

Review by
05/31/2017

“They were great. I liked the supervisor that was there, and he had a very organized crew, and he was very friendly and very attentive to our needs and very informative. We had a fire, so they were doing cleanup from the smoke. I'd give them an A”

Review by
05/31/2017

“They sanitized the basement, and they took down the mildewed walls, sheet rock. They came when they said they would, and they did what they said they'd do. They did a good job. It took longer than they thought because they had to come back another day. I'd give them a B”

Review by
05/31/2017

“When you have a house fire, nothing seems to work exactly right, so I'm not sure that's a fair place to evaluate anybody. I'd probably give them a B average. They did the clean out and that sort of thing, and we really don't know how to assess them until after we return and get everything taken out of storage and see how that worked out.”

Review by
05/31/2017

“They were drying up my basement. It needed to be aired out because of the water. They were very on top when I called them; they were very much on top of the job that had to be done. So, very reliable, and when they say they're going to be there, they're there at that time. I'd give them a B. The only faulty thing I would say about them is that it's a bit expensive, a little steep on the price.”

Review by
05/31/2017

“They were a little bit off on, from their estimate for their charge, which they did adjust. They were cleaning, deep cleaning—major cleaning. It was for disaster construction. I'd give them a B”

Review by
05/31/2017

“We had a clog in the drain. He didn't quote my sister a price. He showed up and then charged us close to $700, so was it a positive experience, absolutely not. Did he overcharge us tremendously? he did. But it's by the wayside now, so I don't care. But would call them again, absolutely not. I think they sub out and have independent contractors, and I think that they take advantage of people who don't have a clue of what the price really should be to have somebody snake a line. You call any plumber in the city, and you can get it done for a couple hundred bucks. Charging somebody five, six hundred dollars is— but that's how they make their money. So, that's how ServiceMaster makes their money.”

Review by
05/31/2017

“ServiceMaster did some work for me on November 26th for about two hours. They billed my insurance company for about eight grand, and the experience was extremely negative. From zero to ten, with ten being extremely terrible, was a ten. The owner of ServiceMaster didn't—he told me that the fire loss didn't even start in the room where it started. I had to bring him back to the room. I was so embarrassed for him; he was an ignoramus. The service was probably charged three times the amount of time that they put in. I was there. It was extremely negative, beyond the lowest grade. The lady in the field and the office, they were courteous and extremely receptive to my requests, turning stuff around when I asked them to. But I would never, ever refer anyone to ServiceMaster in the future. At least, not the office out of that area. The salesman was an ambulance chaser at the property. When I showed up that morning, they said they were going to do there and do the job in a couple of hours, but they gathered up people and a couple of trucks and came in from another area.”

Review by
05/31/2017

“It wasn't that great, to be honest with you. It wasn't so positive, satisfying. We had the water damage. They started out great, but they ended up lousy. We had floors that had to be completely removed; they didn't remove the corners. They were supposed to be removed because they took all the tile floors out, the bathroom sheets out. They told me a couple times they would do it, and they never came back and did it. That's some of the stuff I wasn't happy with you know. Why would you take all the tile floor out and leave like seven or eight tiles around the toilet seat. It doesn't make any sense. They took the toilet seats out, but they didn't take the floor. They left the tiles attached under the toilet seat area. They removed the toilet seat. They removed all the floor except the corner where the toilet seat was. I don't understand why they did that. I'd give them a D.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“The experience was very positive. We had a water leak, and the ceiling opened up. And what they did was seal the ceiling with plastic and put in big fans to dry out all the floors and everything. They had them on for a couple or three days, and it dried everything out. They dried the ceiling out and all the floors and everything. They were just so efficient and so accommodating. They cleaned everything, and they did a good job. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“We had a water problem. Our water heater broke down and caused a flood. ServiceMaster came in and took care of it very professionally. They made us feel comfortable. They checked on us every day to see if it was drying out the way that it was supposed to. We live in a condo, so we had to make sure there was no mold. And they took care of all that; I was very pleased. They were very courteous. I'd grade them an A. We already did recommend them.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“Our basement pipe had plugged and flooded sewage into our basement. They cleaned that up, cut out bits, loaded up disgusting things, and all that good stuff. They were incredibly hard working. I believe Eric was the foreman, and he had a couple different guys with him. I think one of them was Carolos. I forget the name of the other one. But they were fast, they were efficient, and they were good. And they were nice people too. I would give them an A+. I already have recommended them.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“Everything was fine with them. They started doing a demo. They took down the water damage in the walls and ceiling. They were great in all ways. I have no complaints. I'd give them an A+. I went to work, and they did all the demo. And they cleaned up and everything. It was cleaner than before they got there. They were good. It's very likely that I'll recommend them.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“It was an excellent experience. It was definitely water damage they helped out with. They were nice, polite, and they were extremely clean. They picked up everything. And they just kept in touch with me. I feel very good about it. I'd give them an A+, definitely.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“It was water damage restoration. They were just nice guys, efficient, tidy, and clean—all that good stuff. They basically did what they needed to do, were smiley about it, and left. So that was good. I'd give them an A+. I can't imagine they could have done anything else. I would recommend them.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“I just had a problem with a clog at my business. They have a main line, and it was clogged. There was some water damage. It was OK. I'm satisfied with the service they do. I'd grade them an A.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“They did a good job. They were here stopping a leak. We had a leak in a pipe in the basement. They just did a good job. They had no problems. I'd say I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“They cleaned my brother's apartment. There was mold. I liked that they got it done. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“It was an excellent experience, with no complaints. I'm likely to recommend them. It was water damage they helped with.”

Review by

“I had water damage, and they came in and cleaned up the water. They were quick and fast, and they got everything done. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“They were the best part of this whole thing. The water leak from upstairs came down into the bedroom and destroyed everything in the bedroom, so they were very good to fix it. They were responsive and did what they did when they said. They were great. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“They did some water cleaning for the basement. They showed up when they said they were going to, did the job, were very professional, and did what they said they were going to do. They're an A, as far as I'm concerned.”

“They were cleaning out the storage area. They were just easy to work with. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“We had some water damage, and they removed all the damage materials—the side walls, floors, and moldy areas. They were a pretty quick company. I was satisfied, and there was nothing that went wrong. I would grade them a B. They didn't make a mistake. For what they told me they were doing, that was OK. I asked them to leave the part of the floor they took out, but they didn't. Had they done that, I would have given them an A.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“They've probably done work for me. I have used them for my place and my mother-in-law's place. It was a positive experience, for the most part. They were there drying out a little flooding. There was a little leak in the air conditioning unit. They were very helpful and very accommodating. They got there when they could get there and did the job that they needed to do. That's what I like. There was something I don't like. They removed base boards and disposed of them—I would have removed and re-used them. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“I wouldn't say it was positive. I wouldn't recommend them. I had some water damage in my basement. Nothing happened the way my insurance company told me that it was going to happen. I had to force the issue at every step in order to get anything done. From people I've talked to, and from my understanding, ServiceMaster is supposed to come in when there's water damage, take care of the problem, and clean everything out. That just wasn't the case. It's just a C from me; mediocre.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“Everything was fine. There was no mold. They tested it and said there was no mold, but they wouldn't give me a certificate saying that. They said the only way I could get something in writing was for me to pay for them to do a remediation and treatment on the mold. And they charged me over a thousand dollars for it. Needless to say, I got what I paid for, and I got my piece of paper so I could close. But I will not be sending any more customers to them. I think if they say, ‘You don't have a problem’ they shouldn't be charging you for remediation. But they get you in a situation where you're desperate to get it resolved, and you don't want to call three or four other people to tell you the same thing. So, I just paid and got it done, but I wasn't happy with the experience. I've referred that company to many customers, being in the insurance industry, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. I wouldn't use them again, and it's not because they did bad work. They definitely didn't do bad work. I just think it's deceitful that they would charge someone, when they don't have a problem, to remediate something just to get a certificate to say that they'll guarantee the work. I didn't ask them to guarantee any work. I asked them to test to see if there was mold. And the answer was ‘No,’ so why couldn't they charge me $5 and say, ‘OK we tested it. There's not a problem.’ I thought that was shady. I'd say the quality of work they've done—I've used them in the past—the quality is good.”

Review by
10/16/2016

“I had a flood at my house. I would say that, across the board, since I had a negative experience, it was poor service and poor quality of work. I would not use them again, and I would not recommend them. It was water damage.”

Review by
10/15/2016

“There was water in the house—water and sewage and that sort of stuff. I thought they were very friendly and very good. They did what they were supposed to do. I'd give them an A+ on everything. I'd recommend them.”

Review by
10/15/2016

“It was a very good experience. We had a flood, and they cleaned up the mess. They're very quick and efficient. They were there in an hour; very responsive. They were very, very good. We'd recommend them. We'd give them an A+—they were great.”

Review by
10/15/2016

“They did a mold job for me. They're great people, they did a great job, and I thank them very much. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
10/15/2016

“They took care of a flooded basement. They were prompt, and they worked efficiently. There were a couple of companies that we were working with. Service Master handled their work very well. I'd give them a B+. Overall, we were satisfied with the work.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“They did work for me. They were just very good and very cooperative, and they explained everything very good. They had to take up two of my floors; they had to take some of the plywood out as well as some of the cabinets because of mold. My insurance company recommended them. They’re an A.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“They did a great job. They came in, did what they had to do, got out, left no mess behind. They were courteous. I have nothing but nice things to say. They just cleaned some carpets. I've used Service Master before. Not this particular one, but they were very good, so I chose them. A is excellent.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“The people from ServiceMaster were excellent and did a really thorough job. The house was covered in soot, and they were wonderful. They did a great job. I have experience with one of their competitors, and ServiceMaster was far superior. I’d rate them as an A-worthy company.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“They came when I needed them, and they stayed until it was finished. I would certainly recommend ServiceMaster. I had significant winter water damage, and they basically dried out. I had a three-season porch with tongue-and-groove paneling, and they dried it and had to take up the carpeting and the pads. They did all that. They were A-rate. They were efficient.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“They did some work for me. They're very nice people. I liked the fact that the managers were very helpful. I had a discussion with them regarding the price, and they helped me manage my price the way I wanted. I think they sent people that were qualified. I like the management, and the company itself is a very nice, well-known company to deal with. I'd grade them an A.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“ServiceMaster did a great job. I liked everything they did. They were very professional and got everything as clean as they could. They did a real nice job. They had to take out ceilings in one room, the walls, part of the ceiling in the bathroom and hallway, and part of a wall of a bathroom. That was for water damage and mold remediation. They get an A.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“They did a good job. To be honest, we had them come in because the prior people doing the work did a poor job. We actually weren't living in the house. They did the job, and it was what they were supposed to do. They had to remediate three rooms in our house. Our third-party private adjuster is where we found them. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“I'm mixed on them. I'd been away for a month, and I'd shut my water main off. It was ten degrees out, and I had water running down my ceilings and walls. The remediation team lead thought my insurance might not pay because I shut the water main off. They did a certain amount of work and left at one in the afternoon, and by three, I had relayed the issue to my insurance adjuster, and it wasn't an issue. They did a good job doing as much as they did, so it was positive in that aspect. I called the insurance company, and they were swamped with calls, so I chose them; I asked if they did business with my insurance company, and they did. I'd give ServiceMaster an A.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“They did water damage and mold remediation in my basement. It was fine. They were polite and respectful, and they cleaned up afterward. There was a bit of a curveball with the issue, and they rose to the challenge, so it was a good experience. They did a good job. I think we might have used ServiceMaster in the past. They were a little rough in some areas, and then the insurance adjuster didn't catch it when it should have been caught, so they were a little rough on the walls, but I wouldn't take their overall score down for that, so they were excellent. They did a lot of things correctly, but that would be the one issue—they were a little rough on my walls. An A- is fine for them.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“They did some work for me last year. They came when they were supposed to, they did the job they said they would do, and they were polite. They were great. They did what they were supposed to do, and they were nice through the whole process. They did a couple things for us. We had problems with water, so they had to put holes in the wall and remove wood. Then, they set up fans to dry it all out, and they cleaned it all up. That was in several rooms. They were also hired to look for mold, and they did whatever they needed to do to take care of it, remove it, and treat the area. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“This was a year ago. They were great. They were quick and responsive, they did what they were supposed to do, and they left. There were no problems at all. There was water damage, so they helped clean up the water in a lot of different areas. They had to demolish some, take out insulation, and just do cleanup in that regard as well. There was some demolition involved in the impacted areas as well. I'm in the insurance business, so I'm familiar with them, and that's why I chose them. I would go with an A.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“They did some work about a year ago when we had that winter storm. They were very good. They were pretty quick and thorough. They had hazmat stuff when they went in the garage. They had the blowers in a couple rooms to get the wetness out. The roof inside the garage went out, and they pretty much took everything out. It was a two- or three-day ordeal. After that, it was mostly the blowers being in the room for two days. They did water damage and mold remediation. I'd rate them an A; they were very good.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“They came and did a bunch of work. They showed up, and they were nice and clean. We had water issues at our house where a washing machine drain came loose on the second floor and dripped down into the first floor, so they had to rip out a ceiling. They had to have fans that dried everything out, and they worked tirelessly over a period of time in order to get that taken care of. My insurance company said to call them. I’ll rate them an A.”

Review by
03/03/2016

“Once they got the OK to finally come out, they took care of things as quickly as they could. I was very nervous about mold, and they put my mind at ease by checking everything out downstairs and making sure there was no mold present. When you have something like that happen, and you're nervous enough, they just take care of it real quick, and they’re in and out. I just happened to be local, so I picked them. I'd rate ServiceMaster an A.”

“They were very good. They were prompt—when they said they were going to be there, they were there. They got in, did what they had to do, and got out. I had a leak everywhere in my attic from my air conditioner. There were two companies available, and ServiceMaster was the one that could come; that's how I picked. I'd never had to deal with them before, but they were great. I'd give them an A.”

“They were in and out quickly, and they cleaned up. I didn't pick them; the insurance adjuster did. We had some flooding. I’ll rate them an A.”

“They were great. They were efficient, they showed up on time, they were very clean, and they did a great job. A—no complaints. They did water damage and mold remediation.”

“They were prompt, and they listened. It was a flood, so they took care of water damage and mold remediation. I chose them because I’d used them before. They were an A.”

“I'd say they were excellent—no complaints. They were perfect. I'd have these guys again in a minute. They did water damage recovery for me.”
