A victim of the Caughlin Ranch fires in wrote this kind letter to the Reno BELFOR team:
“Our house was affected by the recent Caughlin fire in Reno. When visiting a friend whose house on Starr Meadows Loop burned down completely, we met Chris from BELFOR who was there to help her out. He gave us his business card, and soon thereafter we hired BELFOR as our post-fire damage cleanup team.
Having never been through anything like this before, and as new homeowners, we were devastated at the damage, although minor in comparison to many. We didn't really know what to expect from BELFOR, but Chris worked with our insurance company to get going right away. The fire was in the early hours of Friday morning. We met with Chris Saturday afternoon. By Tuesday when we got home from work, BELFOR's crew had cleaned our house and garage top to bottom. No smoke odor, no ash residue. The outside of the house was power washed and the windows sparkled. Every item in our home and garage -- EVERY ITEM -- was clean and odor free.
You exceeded every expectation we could have had. We'd like to especially thank Daniell Brubaker who did such an amazing job, and who was a great communicator throughout the entire process. Also, Ben was there when we got home and he was polite, professional and very knowledgeable. He made us feel really good about BELFOR. Everyone we met from BELFOR was kind and thoughtful and incredibly professional. Thank you all so much.
By the way, our neighbors, who used a different company, are still sleeping in a hotel due to the smoke/ash; and the company they hired still have not done nearly as thorough a job as BELFOR did in one day. It's amazing the difference we see.
We managed to have a pleasant Thanksgiving thanks to you and your team. We know you worked through the holiday, and we are so impressed with your dedication.
Thank you again. We look forward to working with you for the completion of the projects approved by our insurance company. We are lucky to have BELFOR in Reno.”
BELFOR Reno provided free water mitigation services to a family in Reno whose young son is battling leukemia. After a pipe burst under the home and flooded the crawl space, the family knew they needed professional help but was concerned about the costs for those services. They contacted the Northern Nevada Children's Cancer Foundation (NNCCF) who put them in touch with BELFOR. Ben from BELFOR Reno initially assessed the damage, performed the work, came back several times to check on moisture readings, and finally removed the equipment. In an email, the family wrote: "
Ben came over at about 5:30 - went under the house and immediately found the problem. Ben said he would get something scheduled for today or tomorrow. As he was leaving he asked us how our son was doing ... I wanted to take a moment and express our gratitude for your time, effort and kindness ... I was up late into the night wondering how I could repay you for your generosity.”
