Letter from Christine Iossi Library Media Specialist Grant Wood School and Victoria Myers Library Media Secretary Grant Wood School.
We wanted you to know how impressed we were with Blaze Restoration when we experienced water damage in our library last February. Tom Drovesky and the entire team were very professional, which is especially important in an elementary school. They took the time to explain all the steps they were taking in restoring our library. They were very responsive to our questions and went out of their way to assist us. Because of Blaze we were able to get our library up and running in only two weeks. Except for a few empty shelves, you could barely tell that we had experienced an inch of water. We would highly recommend your company to anyone in need of your services.

We certainly bothered him with many questions throughout the entire process, but he handled them with stride. Thank you for all your hard work.

Mr. and Mrs Timothy Waynick - Hampton, IL 
I would like to take a moment and tell you how much your service meant to me and my wife. Having a fire was the most horrific and terrible thing to ever happen to us. The day after the fire we were in shock and wondering what we were going to do. Seeing everything you have worked for is a nightmare come true. Mike, when you arrived the day after, you make a stressful situation more bearable. Your confidence and sincerity in telling us that things would work out made us feel at ease and was comforting. It also was great that you always had time to answer my many phone calls on what was happening and keeping us informed during the remodeling and again putting us back at ease. To see a company that really is genuinely concerned for their customers welfare was overwhelming to say the least and something not seen a lot in today's times. The work done by your company was SUPERLATIVE and most impressive was the fact that you had us moved into our home 2 months ahead of the anticipated time! Mike, the house is just wonderful and you can never tell that a fire had taken place. The craftsmanship was perfect. Professional, honest, and dynamic would best describe your company and the outstanding staff that you have. I would highly recommend to anyone who has the unfortunate experience of a house fire to use your company. Again Mike, thanks a million for your support and kindness during our difficult time. Myself and Helene are very grateful. One last thing, your motto should be as the Marine motto is, SEMPER FI. It is Latin and means always faithful. BLAZE RESTORATION is faithful to their customers.

Suzanne Webster - East Moline, IL
This is the second time we’ve hired Blaze. Both times the guys have done an EXCELLENT Job. I would refer you to everyone. Thanks for the great job! I felt like my job was handled in a timely and professional manner. Rich Reger was absolutely wonderful to work with!

Bonnie Wick - Geneseo, IL
Thank you so much for all your help during and after my broken water hose emergency.  Every single person who came to my home or talked to me via the phone was so professional and thoughtful.  I appreciate how I was treated even more than your expert work skills.  I definitely sing your praises to everyone who asks me about the accident and how it was handled.  Allen, an extra special thanks goes to you for all the help that you offered even when it wasn’t resulting in a monetary gain for the company.  Your humanity will long be remembered.  A BIG THANKS to you all! I’ll smile & think of Blaze each time I sip a glass of wine, too!

When unexpected problems arose, you dealt with them quickly, professionally, and trusting me to be honest.  I was treated with respect, and for that, I thank you.

R.H. Wilkison - Bettendorf, IA

Letter from Christine Iossi Library Media Specialist Grant Wood School and Victoria Myers Library Media Secretary Grant Wood School.
We wanted you to know how impressed we were with Blaze Restoration when we experienced water damage in our library last February. Tom Drovesky and the entire team were very professional, which is especially important in an elementary school. They took the time to explain all the steps they were taking in restoring our library. They were very responsive to our questions and went out of their way to assist us. Because of Blaze we were able to get our library up and running in only two weeks. Except for a few empty shelves, you could barely tell that we had experienced an inch of water. We would highly recommend your company to anyone in need of your services.

We certainly bothered him with many questions throughout the entire process, but he handled them with stride. Thank you for all your hard work.

I can’t remember the young man that I first spoke to but he was the head of the crew and was so helpful. I can’t say enough about the good service I received from your company. Also, to you Anita for taking the time on Thursday morning to call me and let me know about the deductible on my insurance. I will highly recommend Blaze Restoration, Inc. to everybody.

There are not enough words to tell you how much I have appreciated your help, understanding and kindness during the process of remodeling my home. Your company is the few that understand how devastating a fire can be. The first few days after the fire were very difficult for me, but choosing your company to remodel my home was the best decision I have ever made. From day one, everyone from Blaze has been so very professional and accommodating. I want to thank you all for all your help. I have been so pleased with your work. My home looks very nice. I couldn't be happier with the wonderful work your company has done. Many thanks to everyone at Blaze.

I can't think of anything I would have done differently. I appreciated the opportunity to make the plumbing improvements and painting myself as a way to write off part of the extra costs.

We were very happy with all of BLAZE's representatives. Everyone was very courteous, helpful and knowledgeable. The people working for BLAZE and the quality of work you provided are the best we have experienced. You can be certain we will contact BLAZE the next time we need restoration work done on our house. Thank you again for the great job you did for us! Thanks again for the great job you did on our house. We have recommended Blaze to several people who needed restoration work done on their houses and told all of our friends and family about the great service (and people!) we got from your company. I wish all companies were as committed to their customers as you are. Thanks again Mike. We wish you all the best in your business. And of course, we'll be calling you when it's time for some restoration work on our new house.

Mr. and Mrs Timothy Waynick - Hampton, IL 
I would like to take a moment and tell you how much your service meant to me and my wife. Having a fire was the most horrific and terrible thing to ever happen to us. The day after the fire we were in shock and wondering what we were going to do. Seeing everything you have worked for is a nightmare come true. Mike, when you arrived the day after, you make a stressful situation more bearable. Your confidence and sincerity in telling us that things would work out made us feel at ease and was comforting. It also was great that you always had time to answer my many phone calls on what was happening and keeping us informed during the remodeling and again putting us back at ease. To see a company that really is genuinely concerned for their customers welfare was overwhelming to say the least and something not seen a lot in today's times. The work done by your company was SUPERLATIVE and most impressive was the fact that you had us moved into our home 2 months ahead of the anticipated time! Mike, the house is just wonderful and you can never tell that a fire had taken place. The craftsmanship was perfect. Professional, honest, and dynamic would best describe your company and the outstanding staff that you have. I would highly recommend to anyone who has the unfortunate experience of a house fire to use your company. Again Mike, thanks a million for your support and kindness during our difficult time. Myself and Helene are very grateful. One last thing, your motto should be as the Marine motto is, SEMPER FI. It is Latin and means always faithful. BLAZE RESTORATION is faithful to their customers.

Suzanne Webster - East Moline, IL
This is the second time we’ve hired Blaze. Both times the guys have done an EXCELLENT Job. I would refer you to everyone. Thanks for the great job! I felt like my job was handled in a timely and professional manner. Rich Reger was absolutely wonderful to work with!

Herb and Barb Webb - Moline, IL
You are the best!! Your kindness was appreciated!

Charlie Wheeler - Fulton, IL
Your people were the best

Bonnie Wick - Geneseo, IL
Thank you so much for all your help during and after my broken water hose emergency.  Every single person who came to my home or talked to me via the phone was so professional and thoughtful.  I appreciate how I was treated even more than your expert work skills.  I definitely sing your praises to everyone who asks me about the accident and how it was handled.  Allen, an extra special thanks goes to you for all the help that you offered even when it wasn’t resulting in a monetary gain for the company.  Your humanity will long be remembered.  A BIG THANKS to you all! I’ll smile & think of Blaze each time I sip a glass of wine, too!

When unexpected problems arose, you dealt with them quickly, professionally, and trusting me to be honest.  I was treated with respect, and for that, I thank you.

R.H. Wilkison - Bettendorf, IA 
We recommend you highly.


Viola Xander - Rock Island, IL 
If anyone would ask me about your services I would highly recommend your firm.


Marie Ziegler - Bettendorf, IA
The gentlemen who worked on our job were just great and gave us after hours phone numbers, their own, not the service just in case we had problems. We were delighted and very grateful for the quality of service.
