Is your home or business heated by an oil furnace or burner? If so, it could be vulnerable to a puffback.

When Phil & Ryan Mason heard that Companion Veterinary Health Center was collecting items for animals affected by the flooding in Texas, they were eager to support our furry friends in need. Phil Mason and Beth Markowski-Roop delivered and donated blankets and towels, cleaning supplies, puppy pads, food bowls, carriers, toys, treats, and food for cats and dogs. The Companion Veterinary Health Center coordinated the collection with local organization, Friends of Homeless Animals of Rhode Island, who picked-up all items Sept. 1st, and are delivering to victims of Hurricane Harvey. ServiceMaster By Mason was happy to help families and their pets affected by this powerful storm.
Hundreds of ServiceMaster Technicians specializing in demolition, water cleanup and mold mitigation have joined the cleanup effort in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, including our own Jeff Moriarty. After packing our trailer full of state-of-the-art equipment, products and generators, Jeff was en route to Texas. And after weeks of helping home and business owners in Southeast Texas with water cleanup and mitigation needs, he travelled to Florida to help those affected by Hurricane Irma. Jeff has extensive experience and knowledge in extracting and thoroughly drying water from homes and businesses, to effectively clean and restore properties from top to bottom, and restore residents peace of mind.
When a multi-family home was recently damaged by a tragic fire, ServiceMaster By Mason responded quickly to deal with the aftermath from fire and smoke damage, and also water and mold concerns. Our Head Technicians, Shawn, Carlos, Brian and Hector provided temporary power to the property before beginning needed demolition to remove affected areas like drop ceilings, drywall, flooring, plumbing and fixtures, and even debris outside the home. They used the latest products and processes to fully dry-out the entire home, clean and restore items damaged by smoke, and utilized plastic sheeting to isolate any mold growth from spreading to other areas in the home. Their careful and professional services helped to restore this property, and peace of mind of those who call this house their home.
