United Services Has 2 Employees Earn WRT (Water Restoration Technician) Certification

United Services by Permaco, Inc, headquartered in Lake Bluff, IL, has announced that two of its employees, Jeff Dickens and Michele Donahue, have just been certified as Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) by the IICRC.

Lake Bluff, IL - March 6, 2013

The Water Damage Restoration Technician course is designed to teach restoration personnel that perform remediation work to give them a better concept of water damage, its effects and techniques for drying of structures. The course gives residential and commercial restoration professionals the background to understand the procedures necessary to deal with water losses, sewer backflows, and contamination such as mold. In order to complete the course, students must sacrifice many hours and great deal of time and study to reach this level of certification.

The IICRC is a nonprofit certifying and standard-setting organization dedicated to raising industry standard through technical proficiency. By administering a strict process of certification, the IICRC provides a means by which consumers can receive the highest quality of service from trained knowledgeable, professional technicians.

“We understand the value in our employees having the proper training and utilizing up-to-date technologies when it comes to providing top quality property restoration services.  I am very pleased to add two more certified technicians to our team,” said United Services President, Gary Swenson. 

United Services has been providing insurance restoration services for residential and commercial properties in Northeast Illinois and Southeast Wisconsin since 1981 and has been a Member of DKI since 1995.
