About EPS

Mission Statement

We shall exceed expectations, provide superior quality, and continue to stay on the cutting edge of available technologies and methodologies. Safety, value, cleanliness and client satisfaction are paramount.

Who we are

EPS was founded in Lithia, Florida on May 5, 2005. In 2010, we expanded our operations when we opened our second branch in Nashville, Tennessee. In 2014, we opened the Gainesville, Florida branch, and in 2017, we added our Lakeland branch.

Our mission is to provide top-quality interior and exterior residential and commercial mold remediation, prevention, water extraction, leak detection, inspection, and general contractor services.

We will provide ongoing comprehensive quality control to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.

We view each contract as a personal agreement, not between a business and its customer, but between partners that desire to create a close and mutually beneficial long-term relationship.

STEVE BLAKEY/Lakeland, Florida
Steve Blakey is a retired Sheriff’s Deputy and Florida native who resides in Lakeland. His transformation from deputy to damage restoration owner was an easy decision. Steve wanted to continue helping his community and realized that being able to save a person’s home and possessions from water and mold damage was just as satisfying, but a lot less dangerous.
