Chicago Restoration Company Helping New York and New Jersey After Superstorm Sandy

Local restoration company goes to east coast to help victims of Superstorm Sandy.

On October 30th after a long day pumping out flooded basements, repairing plumbing, and removing black mold from homes in Chicagoland, the owner of asked one question of his team. "Who's coming with me to New York?" asked Mario Majewski. There was a pause, and then one by one his team of expert disaster restoration technicians each stepped forward and told him they were going with him.

Before they left, I was able to ask Mario a few questions. Who am I? I'm Alex, his computer guy who couldn't tell you the difference between black mold and cheese. Anyway, I asked Mario what was going on and he said "I need more trucks", and whether I knew anyone who drove 18 wheelers. I referred him to my brother in law who is a trucker and within a couple hours Mario ended up with enough trailer space to take a majority of his warehouse of restoration equipment on a trip.

Mario said, with a tone in his voice I hadn't heard since 2001, "They've been hit pretty hard and I've been getting calls all day from friends who need equipment". Those friends are small water damage restoration companies scattered throughout New York and New Jersey. Without any hesitation, he and his crew got the semi-trucks loaded and they were off on a late night trip to the east coast.

It is now Halloween and I wasn’t able to get in touch with my boss all day except for one text he sent me that said, “we r ok, big mess, ttyl”. That’s Mario -- hard at work helping others. In fact, I don’t know of any other person who is as quick to help others in a crisis. In fact, I see that in his team too now that I think about it. It must rub off on the people around him.

So, I don’t know how long he and the crew are going to be out there but I do know he’s thinking about everyone back home here in Chicago. He’s probably thinking of how to clone himself because he’s the type of guy who likes to make sure people are taken care of. But I’ll say it here and now, his team is awesome too. Mario believes in them because they are the best at what they do. That’s why he was able to leave a skeleton crew behind to handle water damage and mold issues in Chicago.

I think a person like Mario is one reason why America is so great. I’m proud of him and the team, as well as all the other people who are coming together to help those in need. Good luck and don’t worry. We’ve got things covered here at home. See you when you’re done.
