About SERVPRO of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties

Gene A. & Heidi A. Pehrson

Owners of SERVPRO of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties

Gene and Heidi Pehrson are the owners of SERVPRO of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties. They have been serving the restoration needs of these communities since 2015 and are a locally owned and operated franchise.

Prior to forming this franchise Gene worked as a general contractor in the construction industry for thirty years and Heidi worked as a nurse for thirty years. They bring this wealth of experience and their commitment to excellence to all the customers they serve. In a short period of time, they created an award-winning franchise and hired and trained a dedicated team of restoration professionals.

“We started our franchise late in life and we decided we were not going to compromise our integrity, that we were honest and hardworking in our other careers and this commitment would carry forward to this new chapter of our lives.” Heidi Pehrson

When they are not helping put people’s lives back together, you can find them spending time at their cabin on Northome, raising their grandson, and traveling to warm destinations.
