Water damage

Water damage can be devastating not only on your home but also your life. Whether the water damage is the result of a busted water pipe or storm damage, we can help with our full range of professional water restoration services.

Our goal is to restore your home—and your peace of mind—as quickly and efficiently as possible. When we arrive, we will assess the extent of the damage and decide what needs to be done to get your home dried out. We can even help you navigate an insurance claim.

Fire Damage

Seeing your home and precious possessions consumed by fire can be one of the most severe losses that a homeowner can experience. After such a devastating loss, reassurance comes from having clear guidance and support in salvaging as much as possible from fire and smoke damage. At ServiceMaster of Athens, our technicians are more than talented professionals; they’re caring people ready to get you back in your home as quickly as possible while keeping you informed every step of the way.

Mold Remediation

One of the worst contaminants known is the silent but dangerous growth of mold. Mold can grow indoors on wet or damp surfaces, such as wallpaper, ceiling tiles, carpets, insulation material, wood, and drywall. It can start to grow within 48 hours and if left unchecked, can have serious impacts on both your quality of life and your home’s physical structure. If you see signs of mold or suspect that it has infected your home, we’re here to help remediate the problem and prevent long-term damage.


Life has its ups and downs. Don’t let a backed up septic tank be something that gets you down in the dumps. We’ve handled all sizes of sewage clean-up. We can handle yours. Experiencing a sewage backup or overflow is more than damaging to your home, it can be dangerous to your health. Whether it’s a sewer backup from a breakdown in the neighborhood sewer system or water runoff from a storm, we respond with the right tools, the expert training, and techniques to remove the hazards and water from your home and repair the damages.

ServiceMaster came immediately (on a Sunday!). They were incredibly professional and kind. I had moisture under my flooring, and they came for three days in a row to check fans and offer suggestions for solving the issue as I waited on my insurance company. The best part was how they worked around my work schedule and came at the exact scheduled times each afternoon. I will use them again if needed!

I’m a local insurance adjuster in the Athens area and have had the privilege to work with this ServiceMaster branch. Over the last 18 months, I’ve had nothing but positive experiences with them! They care about their clients, know how to work with insurance, and get the job done faster than any other branch I’ve worked with (and I’ve work with a lot of folks)!

If I have any kind of issues in my own home, I’m calling ServiceMaster of Athens!

Service Masters came in and did not mess around with me. They zeroed in on what needed to be done and did not pad anything. My home looks impeccable now with no sign of mold anywhere. It is ready to be brought back up to where it should have been in the first place. Thank-you for a good job and not taking advantage of me.
