I’ve been with this company about 15 years. One of my favorite parts of this job is to wake up in the morning and feel good about helping somebody. A lot of people need this work and we make a big difference in their houses.
Everyone who is qualified should apply for the program. It’s definitely going to make a big difference in your bill. Clients save a lot of energy. They tell me what a great job we do.
I was in a client's basement when I smelled a strong odor. I knew right away something was wrong.
