We Care About The Environment

In an era where everyone wants to be "green" or environmentally friendly, BRI is proud to say that we have been operating in this manner ever since the founding of our company in 1994.

Being a family owned and operated business, founder Atilio Bernhardt, is always thinking of ways to provide a safe living environment for his customers’ families, as well as a safe work for his employees (many of which are his own family members). In doing so, BRI selects environmentally friendly cleaning products and energy efficient equipment.  Our technicians are educated in how to properly dispose of liquid and solid waste which may contain harmful chemicals and contaminates which include mold, asbestos, etc.

In addition to operating in a conscious manner ourselves, our technicians often identify and remedy infractions (such as illegal storm water discharges into to sanitary lines) and other inefficiencies (like inadequate storm discharge points which result in sump pumps running more than they should). Beyond those two examples, there are numerous other hidden inefficiencies lurking in and around your home. Customers who employ BRI as a contractor, often find comfort in our environmentally friendly approach. As they witness first hand that we are sincere in maintaining the health and well-being of our clients and the homes in the world we all share.
