Brief History

Disaster Restoration Professionals Sam Simon and Nasutsa Mabwa, partners in the ServiceMaster By Simons’ franchise group in the Chicagoland area, share a special story.  Meeting in the mid-nineties as child welfare workers in Chicago’s inner-city, Sam and Nasutsa committed to serving ward’s of the state and their families. They each worked tirelessly to reunite children with their families.  In some cases, children were placed in loving adoptive homes.

A Company is born

After completing graduate school and following separate career paths, they joined up in 2012 to form a company of disaster restoration professionals that served people in a variety of ways. This included restoring and rebuilding homes and businesses as well as contributing to local organizations that restore and rebuild communities.

It’s in this same spirit of charity and service that Nasutsa and Sam operate their companies.

Water Damage Restoration - ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons

ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons “Thankful” To Assist With Hurricane Matthew Recovery Efforts in Hilton Head, SC

Hurricane Matthew, a level 4 hurricane in SC, dumped 13.6 trillion gallons of water on the U.S. and 11 inches of water in Hilton Head, SC on October 8th. Hurricane Matthew is the costliest storm since Sandy in 2012. According to estimates, Hurricane Matthew caused more than $12.2 million of commercial damage in Hilton Head.

“I have never seen such an intense level of damage when carrying out emergency disaster restoration efforts,” said Sam Simon, Chief Operating Officer, ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons. “The effects from Hurricane Matthew are devastating and we are proud to assist local homeowners and businesses in recovery efforts.”

The damage in Hilton Head was reported to be the worst in the Sea Pines Resort, a 5,200-acre private residential gated community located on the southern tip of Hilton Head Island. ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons led disaster restoration efforts tirelessly, for weeks on end.

On Hilton Head, there were numerous fallen trees, over 1,000 damaged homes, considerable dock damage and massive beach erosion, undoing a costly beach re-nourishment coastline project that recently began in June. In the Sea Pines Community, fallen trees blocked roadways, the majority of homes sustained visible roof damage and standing water was observed everywhere.

The first recovery and restoration crews were dispatched to begin work and cut their way across the island in the beginning of October. ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons was one of 30 franchises out of 75 selected to mobilize to the Carolinas. As Hurricane Matthew advanced further, ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons loaded up restoration equipment, prepared its fleet and crews back in Chicago while closely monitoring Matthew’s progress.

“As the water recedes, local residents and business owners have begun to get back on their feet but the work is far from finished,” Simon said. “Yet we feel gratified and thankful to have been part of the early stages of relief efforts to help them begin the process of restoring their homes and business.”

ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons provides water damage restoration services to properties with pipe freeze and water pipe bursts in Chicago-land after record sub-zero temperatures

As the Chicago-land area is plunged into what is now being called the “Siberian Express” and pipe freeze sets in, ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons is responding to calls for Water Damage Restoration Services in homes and businesses spanning from Chicago to Oak Park and Evanston to Glencoe.  The majority of the water damages stem from water-line breaks.  Water-line breaks are usually a direct result of water pipes that have burst from expansion due to a warm up, especially after a deep freeze.  “We usually don’t see this kind of water damage until January,” said Sam Simon, disaster restoration manager for ServiceMaster By Simons.  “and so far, this is the coldest winter I’ve seen in some time.”

Preparing against pipe freeze

ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons staff reached out to current customers.  We reminded them to safeguard against pipe freeze by performing a number of preventative measures, including turning off exterior pipe-spigots from inside.  Insulating water pipes that run along exterior walls and also opening faucets so that a small stream of water continuously runs also makes a big difference.  These few measures can go a long way in preventing pipe-freeze and the subsequent pipe breaks that occur.
