What our Customers say...


A totally professional experience from start to finish. Pick up and delivery were seamless and the quality of care to our rugs exceptional. Forrest and I agree. 5 Stars to SERVPRO!

I'm the Property Manager at Palmetto Pointe Apartments here in Newberry. I've had several storm related incidents due to frozen pipes at the complex. Anytime I need them Mel and his crew are always there at any time that's needed. I highly recommend them. They have great rates for cleaning and I use them for personal use as well.

They are there for you when you need them, anytime! Quickly came and took care of our flooded chapel, after all the rain. Then, made sure it was right, days later.

SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens helped my family tremendously when we needed our carpets cleaned. Their worker was friendly and on time and made the whole experience a pleasant one. They even took an oriental rug to their facility to clean it and returned it promptly. Kimberly and Mel have a wonderful community spirit and volunteer and help wherever needed. I highly recommend their SERVPRO services!

SERVPRO’s name is perfect! They serve with understanding, compassion and professionalism! They helped me at one of the worst times in my life. My business and home were destroyed by fire! They came to our rescue and stayed through the night. They cared not only for my property but every single person affected. I cannot express my gratitude to this outstanding company! They are the BEST!

Excellent work, these people did a great job. Had a fire in my home, and they cleaned it like it never happened!

We had a water line to break in our bathroom. And left a huge mess in our bathroom and bedroom. Our insurance company called SERVPRO. I must say Kimberly and Mel took charge. Thanks to there company for there knowledge and expertise. Great job.

I want to thank you guys for taking care of our back up last week in our Admin. Office area. I called and you guys were here in 10 minutes and took care of it.

Thanks, Terry Wilbanks NCMH

I want to thank SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens County for the quick and effective carpet cleaning service I had this morning. I own a consumer-level carpet cleaner and this would have been an exhausting 5-6 hour job for me. But Chris came in and knocked it out in about an hour, and he got up stains my machine couldn't touch. He was also professional, friendly and explained everything. Thank you SERVPRO, Kimberly, Mel and Chris! From now on, I think my carpet cleaner is just gonna continue collecting dust out in the garage.

My mom’s water heater burst and flooded three rooms. It was a disaster. We called SERVPRO and they were onsite within one hour. Their quick response significantly reduced the amount of damage. Thanks to SERVPRO for doing a great job.

Nice job with our carpets. Great employees

I purchased a home to resale and came by to check on things when I discovered a toliet in my upstairs bathroom had overflowed and did damage to the ceiling in the kitchen. I called Mel with SERVPRO to come out and check the damage it caused. Mel determined that the damage was minimal and he felt confident that I would have no mold issue and the clean up that I did was sufficient for the water damage. I was happy that I wasn't going to have to spend any more money. He was honest and that meant more to me than anything.  I would recommend SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens Counties to anymore. Honest company - Thank you Mel for being so kind to me.

Thank  you 

Angie Beaty

We had a major kitchen pipe burst, Mel, Kim and the entire SERVPRO team came to the rescue!!. They are all so friendly and willing to help in anyway possible to get your house back in order.

SERVPRO did a professional cleaning and carpet cleaning of a new listing for me. The change is incredible. The professionalism and service they provide is above the standard. I highly recommend them and I will continue to send them my business.

I had my bedroom carpets cleaned by SERVPRO, and they are the best! Great employees, from schedulng to the actual cleaning. I cannot say enough about this company, Mel and Kimberly have built a company that employs the best!

Kimberly and Mel with SERVPRO are top notch! The whole downstairs of my house was flooded. They handled it in a very efficient and timely manner. Even referred me to a flooring company for new flooring install.They took the headache and hassle out of this horrible situation. Two thumbs up for these guys!

Not only has SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens Counties done water mitgation work, carpet cleaning, and general cleanup for my wife and me personally, but also for many of my State Farm customers. From water mitigation to fire restoration and more I have confidence that if I can get SERVPRO involved early the whole claims process seems to go easily. Thanks for helping me keep the promise. Good job MEL AND KIMBERLY!

Thank you for sending Mel (3rd) to clean our carpet. He did a GREAT job! Will recommend your services to others.

We just moved into a house and had some stains left in one room of white carpet. Christopher came out and advised us that he might not be able to get 100% of the stains out but would really do his best. It came out beautiful and about 95% gone! Most people will never be able to see it! We really appreciate the professional friendly service! Keep up the good work!

Working with Kimberly was so easy. They came in cleaned our carpet and took my rugs for cleaning. They look great.

Kimberly and Mel Kitchens are the best in the restoration business! They genuinely care about their clients and meeting their needs in a timely manner. I have worked with them professionally through insurance and personally. Amazing folks, doing amazing works!

When I found pieces of my bathroom ceiling on the floor, I suspected that we had a leaky roof. I contacted Kimberly Kitchens with SERVPRO. Yikes, rain was in the forecast. Within an hour Mel K was there to determine damage. His prompt att'n saved us from unnecessary costly repairs. Mel and Kinberly operate their business using the Golden Rule. A big thanks to them both.

Had a major issue in a guest room at the Hotel - Holiday Inn Express with water going everywhere and was able to reach out to SERVPRO Newberry & Laurens and they were here in less that 25 minutes and started extracting water to minimize the damage caused by the unfortunate mishap. The job got completed in a timely manner with minimal time down. Thank you so much for your quick response!

Great customer service from SERVPRO. They were able to get to our house quickly after a flood in our kitchen. They are reliable and professional.

Wonderful team to work with. Always reliable service we can not do without for the apartment complex and rental properties that are scattered throughout Newberry County!

Great experience, would recommend anyone!

Fantastic, job well done.

I could not have been more pleased. The technician was professional, helpful, and thorough. Did not think my carpets could ever look that good again!


I’ve used them several times for cleaning carpet and rugs. Very thorough and professional. I highly recommend them!

Mel and Kimberly have always done a great job for me. When I first started using them I would always have them do quotes for me. Now, I just call them up and ask them when they can start the job.

I’ve used them for duct cleaning in my home and carpet cleaning for my business.

Everyone acted very professional. After Mel showed up I immediately felt less anxious. They have the personality suited for the job. The crew did an amazing job and was incredibly professional throughout the experience.

The first step of getting everything out and getting it dry was so important. Before SERVPRO arrived, it was a mess and I was very surprised that in just a few days we had it looking like this... I am absolutely happy with what SERVPRO did for us. As bad as it was it was turned around very quickly.

I have known Mel and Kimberly Kitchens, the owners of SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens Counties, for several years. I am extremely impressed with their professional team of technicians and staff. They truly care about each and every customer. Anything from air duct cleaning to water removal and damage repair they can do it all.

What a GREAT TEAM!! Thank you for all the encouragement and work provided to my small business!

We have rental property and are very pleased with SERVPRO. Occasionally, I will add a place or two while they are close and I have never been disappointed. Vicki, always answers the phone with a positive attitude!

I had a wonderful experience with the SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens Counties. They did such a nice job. Chris and Rob made the biggest difference. The house had been closed for several years and now it smells so fresh. They made such progress in the house and just didn’t stop, all the way from the baseboards to the insides of the cabinets. I was very, very happy with their work.

We appreciate everyone’s hard work even in scheduling the appointment. Mrs. Vickey was so sweet and kind when scheduling our appointment. We just appreciate everyone so much.

I would absolutely recommend this service to friends and family and even to myself. We plan on using them in the future for a grout cleaning and to clean my parents’ house.

Thanks to you and your guys at SERVPRO for a job well done!

Don't know what we would have done if ya'll did not show up when you did. All your employees were professional and courteous. Chris and Dianne were excellent packers!

SERVPRO was both expedient and professional in dealing with my water damage emergency. The water heater had ruptured and poured countless gallons of water onto the floor; ruining floor covering, furniture, walls and baseboards.

The drying process helped me salvage a lot of family articles that otherwise would have been lost.

The insurance claim process was also made easy with Mel Kitchens providing detailed information to adjuster and following up as needed.

Mr. Kitchens and SERVPRO personally followed up with me to ensure the issue was remedied and I was 100% satisfied.

I had been out of the house for about an hour and a half running errands. I returned home to find water all over my house. The caring and compassionate representatives with SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens Counties were so professional. Mel and Little Mel took care of everything and made you feel like you weren't by yourself. They really acted like part of the family and their work was very much appreciated.

I recently had a fire in my rental property. Mel met me there the next morning. Turn key work! This was a huge plus for me, as the property is located 35 minutes from me. Mel helped me through the insurance process and understanding all of my options.

My mom and dad have wanted their carpet cleaned for sometime. I reached out to my friend, Kimberly Kitchens, and she scheduled her son to measure and to do the work immediately. The cleaning was completed today, and my parents could not be more pleased with the outcome. Not only was the job superb, but Mom and Dad may adopt Lil Mel. He and his assistant were kind, courteous and professional. Mom was thrilled to get a hug from "cute Lil Mel" when he arrived and another as he was leaving! If you want superb cleaning and great customer service, call them.

I was panicking after having found a busted pipe in my home on a Saturday morning. Not knowing what to do, I immediately called Mel Kitchens and SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens County.  They sprang into action right away and Little Mel and his partner were outstanding!  They took care of the damage and explained everything working non-stop until the job was complete.

I came home around 10:30 pm to find water coming out of the front door of my house. My water heater pipe had busted and water was pouring into my house. The first phone call I made was to SERVPRO. The dispatcher was very friendly and professional. She informed me that a team would be right out. Less than an hour the guys were at my house and didn't skip a beat. They went straight to work removing the water. The next morning I contacted my State Farm Agent and they said to let Mel and the SERVPRO team do what they needed to do and that they trusted them completely. The guys were back early the next morning and began taking out the floors and carpet. They SERVPRO team was very fast, friendly, efficient and professional. If you ever have water damage, I highly suggest you contact SERVPRO. Mel and his team were absolutely awesome.

We have been thoroughly satisfied with the wonderful service that SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens Counties has provided us. We had a kitchen fire several years ago and Kimberly and her staff went the extra mile to explain and guide us honestly, with such professional integrity through the complete clean up process. She really gained our trust in her and her team so we have continued to use them over the years for carpet cleaning. 

"Late on a Friday, we discovered a leak in the master bath of our home caused by our two-year old son's overzealous twisting of the hot and cold faucet valves just days before. Our house is a modular, and the water built up and was held in the moisture-proof insulation barrier sheeting. Hundreds of pounds of wet, blown -in cellulose insulation was just waiting to start growing and spreading mold. Luckily, we caught the leak shortly after it started, and SERVPRO was able to send a crew as soon as we realized that we couldn't do the work ourselves on Saturday morning. A crew of three professionals arrived, took our concerns seriously, and brought in the right pumps, diagnostics equipment, and materials to remediate our problem immediately. Their professionalism, cleanliness, and attention to detail was phenomenal. They were courteous and took the time to explain their mold prevention efforts and walk us through what they were doing. It's good to know that there are still companies with staff members who value doing quality work with pride and efficiency. Thanks SERVPRO! You saved me and my family from what would have surely been a massive mold infestation." 

SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens guys are great at what they do. Anytime they have done work at the hospital they have done a great job for us. I would tell anyone that needs their carpet cleaned to to call SERVPRO. Thanks for the GREAT job you have done for the hospital.

I recently used SERVPRO and I could never have been more pleased with the service I received. The staff was wonderful from the office down to the guys that picked up my rug and cleaned it to perfection. Upon returning my rug the guys made sure it was placed exactly where I wanted it in the room. I would highly recommend SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens Counties to anyone who wants perfection. Thank you SERVPRO 

"Palmetto Bone and Joint" has been very pleased with SERVPRO for many years. They always come in a timely manner. We have used them for carpet cleaning, tile floors and also repaired our water damaged building. Very professional and would recommend them to anyone.

 Team SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens Counties, Thank you for doing such a great job cleaning my little Pakistani-Persian carpet. I used to think that SERVPRO only did whole-house projects and disaster relief. Then a few years ago, a friend told me about your carpet cleaning service and I have been entrusting my finest carpets to you ever since. Indian, Chinese, antique Persian carpets, as well as machine made rugs. You have even come to my house and cleaned wall-to-wall carpet located on the third floor. With each job I have been impressed with your professionalism and I have always been pleased with the results. But, when my husband brought this little carpet home from your shop,I exclaimed with delight at how great it looks! The colors are richer and the fringe brighter. I'm very happy. "Thank you" for a job well done! Thanks also to the members of your team--they are always so pleasant and helpful.

When we walked into our home to see water pouring from our ceiling, our first thought was panic and disbelief. Our insurance agent called SERVPRO immediately. They came and jumped right in, pulling up carpet and putting their fan system in place to minimize any more damage. They had a sense of urgency, support, assurance, and kindness that put our family at ease ensuring us that our house was salvageable and would be back to normal soon. Our pipe bursting was difficult, but SERVPRO made the rebuilding process easier. When we reflect on the experience, SERVPRO held our hands as we returned our house into our home again.

 Thanks for everything!

I have had the pleasure of using the services of SERVPRO twice. My initial contact was a scheduled appointment to clean my carpet. The employees arrived on time and did an outstanding job. They were helpful in all areas. My second request was an emergency HOT WATER HEATER TANK PIPE'S BUST. The house was flooded. SERVPRO arrived with all their equipment used to extract the water, removed the damaged carpeting and linoleum, and base boards to avoid mold and immediately began the drying process. This operation was monitored for 5 days. SERVPRO has a superior operation, managers and staff. Efficiency accompanied by courtesy is a rare combination but this exists at SERVPRO! Thanks to all of you!

We love sharing letters and testimonial from our satisfied customers. Here is one we received from a lady who suffered from water damages.

"SERVPRO Is the Best!

When you’ve had a plumbing disaster of epic proportions, there are only four words you want to hear. As I was about to dissolve in the three inches of standing water in my office, teary-eyed and shaking, SERVPRO of Newberry said those four words to me: “We can fix that.”The upstairs toilet had not leaked, but spewed, through the night. The rug in the upstairs bedroom “squished” when you walked on it, and the floor was covered with water. The bedroom was directly above my office, and downstairs I discovered worse damage. It seemed to be raining from the ceiling fan, and rain was pouring from the corner. My heart sank. Old houses are hard, and we have an older home, built in 1924. Read More 

In May 2013 I found myself in need of SERVPRO again. My husband and I received a phone call that our home was on fire. We arrived home and saw the firemen working hard to save the house, which of course meant large amounts of water. I called our insurance company to apprise them of the situation. I asked them if I could call someone to help with the water removal, (I already knew I was going to call on Mel and his crew.) My insurance company informed me of their preferred vendor. And of course it was SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens County. So on a beautiful spring Friday evening, Mel and his crew showed up at our very wet smoldering home and went to work. They immediately started drying things out with de-humidifiers, and machines that pull water out of wood floors. They were back first thing in the morning, hauling out downed drywall, wet insulation, mattress and furniture. SERVPRO arranged for all of our clothing to be picked up and professionally cleaned and stored. SERVPRO took all of the salvageable furniture to their warehouse for storage until we could restore the house. Over the next few weeks, Mel and his crew would check on the moisture levels and finally determined it was okay to remove all their equipment. They continued to store our furniture until mid-summer when we could bring it home. When you hear the SERVPRO commercial “like it never happened”, believe it!
