What We Stand For
Since 2008, our minority business and family-owned disaster restoration and cleaning company has proudly served Chicago and the surrounding suburbs (view company history).
We do so with a deep, professional commitment to our work and a personal dedication to the people we help every day.
We believe in building long-term relationships throughout the community by earning our clients’ trust and loyalty. Truly caring for our customers and our team members is an affirmation of our sense of responsibility to those around us. Very few businesses are in our position to support people when they need it the most. We’re grateful that we can respond with services that make a positive, lasting difference.
Here at ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba, we stand for and by our Act of Kindness policy. Our goal is to help employees create a better work environment by engaging in kind actions with our clients and other members of the public. By performing kind acts for others we increase motivation and productivity among work groups as well as company loyalty when it is part of the work culture. These acts also help lower stress levels and improvement of overall mental health.
We want our clients to experience our human and compassionate side and honest practices. Keeping in mind the following when performing an act of kindness:
Give a reason to share.
Don’t be predictable.
Consider the future.
