How did you first become involved in ABRA?
Mongan first got SERVPRO of Roanoke, Montgomery & Pulaski Counties involved in ABRA back in 2017 when he was interested in learning more about the industry. His goal was to gain more knowledge on the Bio Recovery Industry that went beyond the trauma and crime-scene cleanups, and more into the environmental disinfections such as outbreak response and advanced decontamination. After much research, he found that ABRA was the association with the most knowledge on the subject matter and he attended the certification class being held by another SERVPRO franchise in Maryland.
How has your experience been working with the association thus far?
Mongan expressed that the knowledge and experience that is available through the connections and network that ABRA has to offer has been a wonderful asset, and also has brought better recognition to the company. He also found the SteraMist System by TOMI Environmental Solutions through the association which has been a great tool for bringing the company to the next level in Bio Recovery and Remediation jobs.
In your opinion, why should other companies look into joining the association?
“There are years of experience you can pull from. From the most basic of trauma cleanups to the most extreme bio-hazard, there are always knowledgeable peers available who are willing to give you advice.” Mongan expressed there is always more to learn, and the association is a wonderful resource for any company interested in the Bio Recovery field to do just that!
