Our Approach

flooded-21st-floor-condo-draining-waterOn average, we are able to save much of the property in commercial losses because of our “clean and save” policy, rather than demolishing your business.

ServiceMaster Absolute attempts to clean as much as possible on premises with our industrial-sized ultrasonic cleaners, and we offer off-site storage if necessary. We have two ozone rooms to remove the smoke smell from your large furniture and equipment. Our “dragon” dryer is a workhorse tool for drying under structures.

State-of-the-Art Training & Equipment

Our project leaders are Master-IICRC trained, and they attend mandatory weekly training sessions to keep up with the state-of-the-art disaster restoration techniques.

All equipment entering your facility is bar-coded. This way, we can easily and transparently track it and keep your costs down. We are the only ServiceMaster in San Diego, CA providing electronic tracking.

This culture of training has earned us numerous awards for quality control with ServiceMaster and throughout the insurance industry. Owners Karen & Doug Dehart will celebrate their 40th anniversary with ServiceMaster this year. They now have a large fleet of cleaning vehicles and over 30 staff members, and the business still continues to grow.


Regardless of whether you’re dealing with the aftermath of a fire or flood, or even a trauma scene, ServiceMaster Absolute in Southern California is available 24 hours a day to assist you in your recovery from a disaster. Whether it be fire restoration or commercial water damage repair, we have you covered.

We can restore your business from Oceanside to Alpine – even to the Mexican border. Our average response time is just 45 minutes.

We were able to perform commercial flood damage repair on their store overnight, allowing them to get back to business as quickly as possible.


When the largest church in San Diego caught fire, they turned to ServiceMaster Absolute Water & Fire Damage in Southern California for the disaster restoration and commercial cleaning.

In only three days, we restored the 7-story, 750,000 square ft. sanctuary from a burnt, smokey shell into a glistening, clean, and smoke-free environment. The commercial fire damage restoration was completed to perfection and ahead of schedule.

Three weddings were saved as a result, and not a trace of soot was in sight as the brides’ long, white wedding dress trains traveled down the sanctuary’s red carpet.servicemaster-cleaned-fire-smoke-damage-in-united-methodist-church1-300x201
