Burbank, CA
I was very pleased with the service that was provided by Service Master. I called and filed a claim for my back retaining wall that had collapsed close to 10 pm on March 28, 2020. I was concerned because of the alleyway. Service Master came out by 12 midnight to board it up. I felt more at ease. Thank u Service Master!
