Local Businessman Launches ServiceMaster Restore Denbigh

With BDMA and Crime Scene Cleaning qualifications, as well as being a qualified electrician; Chris decided to invest in ServiceMaster Restore because of its high reputation within the area. Additionally, Chris understands the difficulties clients can face during the moments following a disaster.

Chris said: “Disasters can happen at any moment and can be a stressful time for any individual or business. I think it’s important to realise the extra care and attention that is often required when carrying out work; either direct for a home, business owner or for an insurance agent.

“It’s important to me that they should all be treated with the same respect and integrity, whether I’m in someone’s home, business or working on behalf of a company.

“As a family-run business, my plans for ServiceMaster Restore Denbigh, are to ensure that we provide an excellent service to our clients and develop the ServiceMaster Restore brand. I am dedicated to building strong relationships with all local contacts.”

As the business grows, Chris is looking forward to the opportunity to grow his local workforce and potentially employ local people.

ServiceMaster Managing Director, Alan Lewin added: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Chris on board with this exciting opportunity. His work ethic and passion to help people during a crisis is exactly what this brand is all about. We wish him every success and cannot wait to watch his business bloom.”
