ServiceMaster by Benevento expands services by joining the national ServiceMaster Recovery Management network
VISALIA – ServiceMaster by Benevento has been serving the disaster restoration and disinfection needs of the Central Valley for nearly 40 years, and are now taking their services to the next level. The family-owned franchise has been chosen to be a part of a major expansion of the ServiceMaster Recovery Management (SRM) network, which is a national leader in large-loss commercial disaster remediation and restoration.
The SRM expansion more than doubles the size of the network, from nine to 21 approved providers nationwide. Applicants for the network had to meet stringent requirements involving experience in commercial loss recovery projects, equipment, staffing and capabilities.
“Achieving the SRM brand is a significant step for our company,” Scott Smith, sales manager of ServiceMaster by Benevento said. “As part of the network, we will be called on for major commercial restoration projects throughout the country. These situations involve highly specialized skills, special equipment and experience. Every company in the network is well qualified to manage and perform large-loss restoration jobs.”
As one of the top service masters in the nation, ServiceMaster by Benevento has offices in both Visalia and Fresno. As a part of the SRM network, they are now able to provide and receive assistance from other service masters around the country. Mt. Whitney alum and company president Tony Benevento deems the SRM network will help ServiceMaster by Benevento better serve the local community.
“We now have the capabilities to handle a small water loss that maybe happens in a customer’s home, all the way to a multimillion-dollar loss that happens in a million-square foot warehouse,” Benevento said. “We have the capabilities, the team, the training, and the assets to be able to take care of that. We wouldn’t have had those capabilities before but now we do.”
SRM is often called after catastrophic events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, floods, earthquakes and similar disasters. The company is a single source for all necessary recovery services, including heavy equipment, generators, decontamination and engineering. They clean, remove water, eliminate smoke and other odors, and coordinate repairs so that facilities can reopen faster. Typical SRM customers include major industries, educational and health care facilities, worship centers, hotels and large office buildings.
“Adding these new, approved providers greatly expands our capabilities,” said Drew Draisey, senior director of commercial restoration sales and service for SRM. “We’ll be able to respond faster wherever disasters occur, with much greater capacity and with great consistency of service.”
The expansion will also create more jobs in the local community, as ServiceMaster by Benevento will be looking for qualified people to join the team. They’ve grown from around 50 employees to 75 employees within the last two years, and will continue to add more fire and water restoration technicians, job coordinators, and project managers.
