Giving Back by Serving Friends and Neighbors: John’s Story
SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties franchise owner John Mantor and his wife Delmy had always wanted to own their own business. They were introduced to SERVPRO by a friend, and after comparing franchise options and aligning them with family and lifestyle priorities, John and Delmy quickly discovered that SERVPRO was the perfect fit for their family.
John’s typical day at SERVPRO may feel like a whirlwind to onlookers, but he appreciates the opportunity to serve others and so he accepts the whirlwind that comes with this opportunity. No two days are alike. John’s busy days include scopes and estimates for potential clients, staff training, and helping clients with disasters.
“I love working with the public. It gives me great satisfaction to assist them to get their property back to "Like it never even happened."” John shared. “My customer is often distraught, but I know I can help them get through this situation.”
In one instance, John had an elderly couple who experienced extensive water damage. Water damage is difficult enough, but to compound the problem, there was also hoarding going on. It took several months to remove trash and debris, and then clean and sanitize the structure so that it could be rebuilt. In the end, this SERVPRO client had a beautiful home once again.
“It was an amazing transformation, and I am so glad we were able to help them!” he expressed.
John has had several instances where he was able to help family and friends in moments of distress. From a gallon of paint spilling over in a car’s interior to assisting when a trauma scene cleanup was required, SERVPRO of Randolph and Henry Counties has been there to help.
John loves working for SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties and appreciates the great system that SERVPRO provides and the flexibility his job allows.
“Spending time with my family is very important to me. Serving God and living for Him is my most important endeavor,” he expressed. “I enjoy playing and watching sports and coaching baseball.”
John is able to balance family life and his church life, while still allowing time to work with teens through Babe Ruth baseball programs and serving the children of the community through the Breakfast Optimist club. He loves giving back to the community where he works and lives!
