Restoring your homes after water, fire, and mold damage isn't our only commitment to the members of our community.

SERVPRO of Alexandria is also committed to keeping our streets clean! 

We recently became members of the Adopt a Block program in Alexandria. We adopted a section a South Van Dorn Street, that extends for 2 blocks from Pickett to Stevenson. To maintain our membership in this program, and our commitment to a cleaner Alexandria, we will complete several litter clean ups throughout the year, and report them to the City of Alexandria.

Know that when you decide to contact SERVPRO of Alexandria for all of your restoration needs, that we are committed to all members of this community, in more ways than just one. 

SERVPRO of Alexandria Gives Back to our Great Community in Which we Live and Work

Donation SERPVRO of Alexandria makes several conscious efforts throughout the year to give back to different organizations in our community

A community is defined as “a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.” As our company continues to grow from the support and continued business from members of our community, we realize how important it is to give back to the great communities in which we live and work! 

In April 2021, our SERVPRO team contributed a sizable donation to the Fraternal Order of Police of Virginia.  

The organization attempts to improve the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those they serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement, and employee representation. This was a small token of our appreciation for their continued dedication to those in the line of duty. 

THANK YOU to all respectable state and local officers, past and present!

Adopt a Block Our dedication to the individuals in our city extends past helping you inside your homes and businesses into keeping our streets CLEAN as well!

We are EXCITED to share that we are now a part of the Adopt a Block program through the City of Alexandria.  

We have officially adopted a 2 block section of South Van Dorn Street, stretching from South Pickett Street to Stevenson Avenue. Being a part of this program means we must clean this section of road at least 3 times a year and report the number of bags of trash we collect, in addition to any street lamps that are out, sidewalk repairs needed, or storm water drain problems. Our pickups will typically coincide with "Earth Day" in April and the "Day to Serve" in Autumn.

It is so important to us, as a company, to give back to our community and build stronger relationships within our team. 

We will participate in our first street cleaning on Earth Day, April 22nd, and can't wait to share our experience with you!

IICRC logo We are an IICRC Certified Firm

SERVPRO of Alexandria is an IICRC firm. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) creates the standards for the restoration industry and provides training and certification to restoration companies. 

IICRC Certified Firms must

  • Present accurate information to consumers and conduct business with honesty and integrity.
  • Require a technician on all jobs who has been formally trained and passed all required tests.
  • Require a continuing education program to keep technicians up-to-date on the latest changes in the industry.

  • Maintain a written complaint policy and agree to Better Business Bureau or similar arbitration to resolve disputes, and accept the conclusions and recommendations of arbitration.

The IICRC Develops The Standards For The Restoration Industry

The IICRC has been the driving force in establishing the main industry standards and reference guides for professional carpet cleaning, water damage restoration and mold remediation. These IICRC standards take years to develop and require the coordination of experts in the field: manufacturers, industry organizations, insurance professionals, training schools, contractors, and public health professionals.

Every five years, the standards are reviewed and updated. The water damage restoration field changes rapidly with advancements in technology and science, and therefore the standards must evolve to keep pace.
