Sixteen years ago today, Danny and Karen Aller started SERVPRO of Edison with one van, three Dehumidifiers, twelve Air Movers, and one employee waiting anxiously for the phone to ring.

Since that day, SERVPRO of Edison has helped countless families and businesses recover from unexpected disasters.  Whether the water damage was caused by something as catastrophic as Hurricane Sandy or as mundane as a leaky faucet, SERPVRO of Edison was ready for anything.  We have seen a lot over the years – basement floods, kitchen fires, moldy homes, and sewage backups – you name it, we’ve cleaned it. 

We have been consistently expanding our knowledge base and equipment inventory.  Now, in addition to Water Damage Restoration, we are able to serve the Edison area with Carpet Cleanings, HVAC Duct Cleanings, Mold Mitigation, Odor Remediation and Smoke Damage restoration.

Over time, SERVPRO of Edison has become a staple in the community. SERVPRO of Edison participates in local events such as street fairs, and enjoys sponsoring other local events such as golf outings. SERVPRO of Edison is also a member of the Metuchen Chamber of Commerce.

Today, SERVPRO of Edison has a warehouse full of equipment, a fleet of vehicles, and a crew of highly trained technicians who are on call 24/7, ready for whatever disaster comes next.

We have come a long way in 16 years.  Here’s to many more years to come.
