    • Paul Davis doesn’t just do the clean up, they also put everything back together.


    Colleen told us a story about Scott Brooks, a former fire fighter, who walks through the houses with the clients.  One job, Scott went through the house for 3 weeks to find a wedding ring, even though Paul Davis didn’t get the job.  But that is what makes Paul Davis special.   


    Colleen started in April of 2016.  Previously did online marketing.  Fell in love with the company due to the owners.


    Paul Davis wants to give back.  They donate a large meeting room to non-profits.

    Paul Davis has installed thousands of smoke detectors for those that don’t have them.  


    First priority for business buildings.  This means that Paul Davis gets to know your building and your needs before a disaster happens.  Then if a large disaster happens and they guarantee that they will send someone to your job before others.


    Let us be that call, to your best friend, and be there when you need us.
