We are not pretending to be Specialised Restoration Technicians!! Don’t be fooled.

Easily become a certified restoration technician in just 3 days! Score 75% or higher on a 160-question multiple choice exam after running through the questions in the morning for optimal memory retention. Don’t settle for just qualifications – a qualified technician should have at least 3 years of experience and multiple certifications, reaching the coveted Master Certification Level. Beware of those one-course restoration warriors who claim to do a “proper” job. Our industry lacks government support, leaving the cost of training on the shoulders of business owners. With high staff turnover, it’s rare for employees to stay in the industry or with one company for long, leading to a lack of skilled restoration workers. At our company, we only hire, or train “Restoration Technicians”, creating a specialised team focused on cleaning and restoration rather than destructive methods. We stay in our lane – let the builders build, the roofers roof, and the restorers restore.
