Extending the Family Feeling: Justin’s Story
Working in restoration is definitely not for everyone. For some however, it’s their niche. Justin is part of the team at SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties, and he enjoys making it “Like it never even happened.” Every day is different in the realm of restoration, but that’s what keeps Justin on his toes and looking forward to each day serving the community through SERVPRO.
After arriving at the office and participating in the daily team rally, Justin hits the town to begin completing his tasks for the day. These tasks can range anywhere from working in a crawlspace remediating mold to extracting water from a basement flood. No two days are the same, and that’s what keeps working at SERVPRO interesting for Justin.
“I appreciate getting out in our community and having the chance to meet new people and build special relationships,” Justin explained. “Our SERVPRO crew is like family and we like to extend that to others.”
Justin recalls helping a woman in the community who slipped into a depression after her mother passed. “Because of the depression, she kind of let things go,” Justin recalled. “SERVPRO was able to help, not only clean her house of the clutter and debris, but also allow her a fresh start in her home.”
He also had the opportunity to help a friend during the winter months. “My friend had gotten stuck in a muddy field and by the time the vehicle was freed, the entire thing was covered in mud. The SERVPRO team was able to take care of him and get him out of the pinch. He really appreciated it.”
Justin not only meets community members through SERVPRO, but in other platforms as well. Being enlisted in the Indiana National Guard, he is given the opportunity to reach even more members of the Henry and Randolph Counties. Justin also enjoys attending fundraisers, especially when they involve food! In addition to work and community activities, Justin loves spending time with his wife, two daughters, and dogs. He likes to go to the YMCA, play basketball with a group of friends on Monday nights, and completing small building projects at home.
SERVPRO appreciates having Justin on the team. Thank you for all that you do, Justin!
