SERVPRO grows home damage restoration brand

MILLEDGEVILLE — After renting facilities since 2005, SERVPRO and KC Eady Insurance Repair umbrella owners Jason Latimer and Josh Eady enjoy owning a building on Chase Court.

The residential and commercial property damage restoration experts said the recent move to a smaller facility is worth the trade for a better location.

“It was one of our long term goals to own a building. We felt like it was a good move for us,” Latimer said. 

The insurance repair roots date back to 1988 for the family-run KC Eady business. 

Latimer and Eady purchased the company on Aug. 1, 2005.

“That business specializes in structure restoration in the insurance world,” Eady said. “Anything fire, wind and water that happens that’s what we fix.”

Close to 90 percent of business is residential.

The guys purchased the local SERVPRO franchise two and a half years ago to compliment KC Eady.

“We thought it was a good idea because any fire or water damage we are always working hand in hand with SERVPRO,” Eady said. “SERVPRO is the mitigation side. Now, we say we are a one-stop-shop that handles everything from start to finish.”

If a house floods for instance, SERVPRO is there for the initial on-scene response drying out the area and preventing further damage.

Sales and marketing representative Kelly Moore described the collective business.

“The mitigation keeps the damage from going further. It’s a stop for (customers),” Moore said. “KC Eady puts it back together.”

Eady said big or small the company understands homeowners are dealing with a traumatic event.

“It’s truly a life changing event when you go through something like this especially a fire,” he said. “When something happens to your house it’s a big deal. It messes up your daily routine.”

Latimer said every job is unique.

SERVPRO wants to make the process as smooth as possible.
