MEMPHIS, Tenn. –  Superior Drain Cleaning of Visalia, Calif., has been named the 2011 top-performing plumbing contractor for American Home Shield, the nation’s leading provider of home protection plans. Superior Drain Cleaning, which has answered the plumbing needs of residents and businesses in Visalia since 1990, earned a $25,000 bonus for its performance in American Home Shield’s 2011 Contractor Quality Bonus program.

“Our contractors understand the importance of customer satisfaction. They work hard and do a great job delivering quality service,” said Dave Crawford, president of American Home Shield.

According to owner Brian and Tami Shirer, the company earned such high regard by making sure the first interaction with every customer is a lasting impression.

“We have a service to provide to our customers and we go into every job with the mindset of providing them with the best service we can,” said Shirer. “It is important to stay connected and positive, and make sure they understand the steps necessary to complete the job. To be recognized as the best in the nation, based on responses from customers we serve, lets us know we are providing quality service and an overall positive experience.”

Shirer indicated that the company’s keys to success include staying in contact with the customer keeping a positive attitude and making sure the customer is comfortable with the service provided.
