SERVPRO of Black Hawk County Employee Photos

Devon Burgess

Devon Burgess

Devon Burgess joined SERVPRO of Black Hawk County in March 2018 as a production technician. Devon hasn’t wasted anytime discovering all the facets of cleaning up after a water pipe break or the steps in demolition after a fire. But it’s no surprise of his determination, for Devon’s naturally a ‘fix it’ type of guy. Learning from his mom to first try and figure it out, by taking it apart and identifying the problem before giving up, Devon has taught himself to repair and do maintenance especially on electronic items. Recently leaving that field of work, he really enjoys the physical labor of SERVPRO’S mission and the gratification of helping people put it all back together again.

At home he enjoys gaming, computer programming, and watching movies with his wife and two daughters.
