"I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it has been having the crew at our house over the past 2 weeks. We had a small kitchen fire (almost) on Christmas Eve night. There was some bad smoke smell but we caught it before there were any flames from our wall oven that just decided to overheat. We called our insurance dealer and I talked to the Adjuster to set up a meeting when we returned from our break on the beginning of January. We met with Kyle and Adjuster at the house and discussed what should happen next. After an hour or so from meeting with Kyle the plan was executed with Margo and the whole crew stepping in and completely washing down the house and giving it the clean-up of a lifetime. Your whole crew has been so respectful of the situation and babysitting the animals at the house. Thank you for such great staff that you have; your crew has gone above the call to make a great result from a bad situation. We will be meeting with Kyle next week to go over the last few details, it is nice that your team is professional and takes pride in what they do in these situations. Thanks again for the help and high fives all around for making this a very good experience."
