Highly Trained Restoration Specialists

At SERVPRO of Clay County, we believe in education and good training. We want our technicians to have both, a good conceptual knowledge of the art of remediation and restoration as well as the technical skills to do good, quality work. So, we believe in a highly trained team. To address water, fire, or mold damage in homes and businesses in Clay County, or surrounding areas like Smithville, Claycomo, and Kearney, you need trained people who know what they’re doing.

Our team regular works to sharpen our skills. We do this through regular training and continuing education. We do this to be ready and responsive for Clay County residents. Our technicians are trained in a variety of restoration topics and skills. Our technicians receive their qualifications through IICRC certifications in Water Damage Restoration, Applied Structural Drying, Fire and Smoke Restoration and Commercial Drying (among other topics).
