Scott and his team make sure to explain every step of the details they were taking care of, and he told me about things to expect. During this time, when I lost my entire kitchen — ceiling, floors, walls, cabinets and counters.

Not Your Average Restoration Company

We wanted to know what makes New Hampshire’s number one restoration company so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, John.

The first question we had for John was what makes Burke Emergency Restoration unique compared to their competition in New Hampshire. Here’s what he had to say:

“We take care of people, and our history speaks for itself. Our reviews are a perfect indicator of what someone will expect when dealing with my company! We approach things differently than our competitors. We train our field people so they can run a job in its entirety. This includes the ability to make decisions on the job site. We always have a decision-maker on-site, and that’s why training is of the utmost importance!”

John went on to say:

“We are in an industry where there are a lot of competitors, which means that we need to do a better job so that we can stand out. We are a family-owned business. My son works here, my wife works here, and we are deep in the community! Relationship building is a huge thing here.”

We also asked John about Burke Emergency Restoration’s mission and how they work to make the world a better place. John told us:

“Our mission is to provide top-notch service and make sure that we have happy customers! We want to leave clean work sites, to keep open lines of communication and to ensure we are doing things correctly the first time and are providing the highest quality of service possible!”

John told us that they give back by giving to the book bank and by volunteering at a local soup kitchen.

Building Success With Happy Customers

When we asked John what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Burke Emergency Restoration, he said:

“We drill it into everyone that the most important thing to have is a happy customer. We go out of our way to go above and beyond on every call. We treat clients with respect and empathy. We are here to take care of the people!”

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Burke Emergency Restoration has. Here’s John’s advice for them:

“Take care of your customers! If you do not do quality work, it will come back to bite you! Invest in people, the right equipment and training, and above all else, do whatever it takes to have a satisfied customer! Remember, we are a service business!”

John ended our conversation on this note:

“Thank you to the community for allowing us to serve you! I appreciate my staff for everything you all do!”


Congratulations to the team at Burke Emergency Restoration for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, John, for taking the time to speak with us!

It is because of excellent reviews like this that First Response Restoration is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Restoration Company

We were excited to learn all about First Response Restoration and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with Cole Partenza, who co-owns the company with his father, Steven.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that has made this family-owned business stand out over the last 30 years. Cole told us that they try to only grow as much as they can without losing any of the remarkable quality they are committed to providing their customers with.

We asked Cole about the First Response Restoration business mission, and he said:

We will map out a game plan ahead of time so the learning curve is greatly reduced during a disaster… We work with all national and local insurance companies for insurance claims.

Washington DC’s Top Rated Local® Restoration Companies Award Winner: Paul Davis Restoration of Suburban Maryland & Washington DC

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Paul Davis Restoration is the number one restoration company in all of Washington DC for 2019!

From water damage restoration to mold remediation, Paul Davis Restoration of Suburban Maryland & Washington DC is your premier source for all of your restoration needs.

Paul Davis Restoration of Suburban Maryland & Washington DC has received dozens of reviews on three verified sites with an average rating of 4.71 stars, earning them a spectacular Rating Score™ of 93.07 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for being ranked the number one restoration company in all of Washington DC!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Everyone at Paul Davis was amazing and so easy to work with! Our insurance sent them out for damage clean up after pipes burst, and we were so impressed with the team that we didn’t think twice about using them for the rebuild/remodel work! Every team member showed up on time, completed the work as expected and made the whole process a breeze! I cannot say enough good things about this company! Thank you, Paul Davis, for getting our home back in order and even better than before!” – Christine F.

Not Your Average Restoration Company

We wanted to know what makes Washington DC’s number one restoration company so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with Vice President of Business Development, Tom Plant.

The first question we had for Tom was what makes Paul Davis Restoration unique compared to their competition in Washington DC. Here’s what he had to say:

“Paul Davis has been around since 1966. Our primary business, literally since 1966, has been to provide emergency services and restoration to people who have suffered water damage, fire damage or storm damage. It’s not as though we came from another industry because we thought this was an interesting business to be in; we’ve always been in this business. We think we understand what the customer really needs, and we think we’re pretty darn good at providing that service.”

Tom went on to say:

“We’ve gotten where we are thanks to a lot of training and putting in the effort to find the right people to work for this company. It definitely takes a special person to get up in the middle of the night and go a long way to help somebody, and not everyone on the street is excited about doing that for a living. We’re very careful about who we hire, and we want to make sure those people are really focused on taking care of our customers.”

We also asked Tom about Paul Davis Restoration’s mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Tom told us:

“This year, we’ve made a concerted effort to actually get more involved in the community. We have some core values that we focus on and talk about on a daily basis. It’s all based on the Golden Rule — treat others like you’d expect to be treated yourself. If we do that on a daily basis with each and every customer, people will really respect that and appreciate that. I’ve always said to our people, ‘Treat each customer as if they’re the only customer.’”

Building Success With the Right Team

When we asked Tom what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Paul Davis Restoration, he attributed it to the really good people they have on their team who serve their customers the right way. Many of their customers are pretty traumatized, and the team at Paul Davis goes out of their way to provide the best possible service for them. Tom added:

“If we make them happy and they feel good about it, then we do ask them very kindly to give us a good rating…”

Apart from building the kind of online reputation any business would envy, Paul Davis Restoration has spread the word about their service through advertising in Frederick Lifestyle, by visiting potential customers face to face, by posting about interesting topics on Facebook and LinkedIn, and by educating their customers through lunch and learns and seminars. They are also very involved in their community, where they participate in community events, four different Chambers of Commerce, the Rotary Club and nonprofit events to help out the less fortunate.

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Paul Davis Restoration has. After we asked what advice he has for them, Tom emphasized the importance of taking care of your customers, being proactive about asking for reviews and building a solid online image.


Congratulations to the team at Paul Davis Restoration for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Tom, for taking the time to speak with us!

Tennessee’s Top Rated Local® Restoration Companies Award Winner: PuroClean Certified Restoration Specialists

PuroClean Certified Restoration Specialists has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across three different verified sites with an average rating of 4.93 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 95.25 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking as one of the top three restoration companies in Tennessee!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“I came home from work one evening and found that the ceiling had fallen down in my son’s bedroom from a roof leak. I did not have a clue what to do, and my co-worker suggested PuroClean. They came out immediately! Not only were they quick to come to my needs; they were also extremely professional and courteous, and they had my home spotless before they left. I would recommend PuroClean to anyone!” – J.S.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that PuroClean Certified Restoration Specialists is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Restoration Company

We were excited to learn all about PuroClean Certified Restoration Specialists and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Marcus Fors.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes PuroClean Certified Restoration Specialists stand apart from its competitors. Marcus said that they believe in quality over quantity. He said that many other companies will frequently take on more jobs than they can actually handle, and will pick and choose the best jobs, sometimes, missing or no-showing for the other clients. That’s not the case at PuroClean. Marcus said he will always tell people if they are too busy. They want to be able to offer top-notch service to everyone they work with.

Marcus told us about the importance of treating the clients’ homes like their own and giving them the respect they deserve:

“We really just walk into every customer’s house thinking that it’s ours. We wouldn’t do anything to a customer’s home that we wouldn’t do in our home. I try to emphasize that in my guys; they pick a time, and they try to do it right.”

Marcus went on to tell us about his qualified staff:

“Our guys are certified in everything that we do. There are some companies out there where the owner has all the certifications for water, fire and mold, and then they send their minions out to go do the work. My guys are actually certified in what they do. So, they don’t have to call me and say, ‘Hey, I don’t know what’s going on, or what do we do next?’ They know what they’re doing, and they’ve been doing it for a while. We have a great group of guys, and I think that’s what makes us different.”

Building Success By Networking Locally

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, PuroClean Certified Restoration Specialists has spread the word about who they are and what they do by networking locally. Marcus said that they have a marketing and sales person on staff, and that he still goes out and networks himself. Marcus is also a member of BNI (Business Network International) and the local Chamber of Commerce.


Congratulations to PuroClean Certified Restoration Specialists for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Marcus for taking the time to speak with us!

They took the time to explain everything in detail to my elderly mother. I have used them in the past, so I knew they would do a good job. Thank you very much to the team. Highly recommended.” – Diane S.

A One-of-a-Kind Restoration Company’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

SERVPRO of Branford has managed to build the kind of reputation any business owner would envy, and to learn a little more about that reputation and this one-of-a-kind business, we sat down with the CEO John Luciani.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes SERVPRO of Branford unique compared to the many other restoration companies in Connecticut. John told us:

“What makes us different is that we are there for our customers every step of the way. If you need to use SERVPRO, you’ve often had something catastrophic happen to your home, business or property.

“When you provide exceptional service, you get an exceptional reputation in return. We make sure to be transparent and open with our customers so they know who we are and what we can do for them.

Making the World a Better Place by Helping People in Need

We also wanted to know what their mission is at SERVPRO of Branford and how they work to make the world a better place. John shared with us

“Why do we do what we do? To help people in need. If you’ve had to use our services, you’ve most likely experienced water damage, fire damage, mold, biohazards, etc. — an emergency of some sort. For most people, this is not an experience they’ve ever had before. We strive to make sure that customers are taken care of in this time of need. Whether it be helping with insurance claims, walking customers through the process or just having a SERVPRO representative on-site with them, we want to make sure that our customers feel taken care of and heard. Our overall mission is to focus on excellent service, fairness and mutual respect. We make the world a better place by running towards disasters to help out!”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, SERVPRO of Branford has grown through community involvement and person-to-person interactions:

“Though we believe in a strong online reputation, we also believe strongly in quality person-to-person interactions. …That’s what makes us stand out; we put an emphasis on having our representatives involved in our local community. Our team is involved in multiple organizations and associations across Connecticut. We’re always out in the community trying to meet new people and grow relationships!”

It’s clear that John knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“We recommend being honest with your customers and letting them get a feel for who you really are! We like to use social media to promote our team and our company, so that members of the community can get to know us. Another thing we’ve found to be beneficial is to LISTEN to your customers. If you get a negative review, use it as a learning experience, and be sure to make things right with the customer. Honesty and openness can go along way online.”
