Critical Control is a family owned company. Headquartered in beautiful Petaluma, California the company now services a growing portion of the United States.
As a teenager in high school, Zac Copper (founder), started with a squeegee and a bucket of soap water. He went around knocking door to door offering window cleaning and other home services during the summer time to help raise money for college.
Initially called Northbay Maintenance, the business would be rebranded a few years later to Critical Control. After hiring several friends, the business continued to grow and the rest of the Copper family joined shortly thereafter.
As a family, they obsessed about the client experience and creating a company that they’d be proud to build together. Today, the business has grown to provide the highest caliber disaster recovery services to their residential and commercial clients across the nation.
Whether it’s being called out by governments and Fortune 500 companies to assist on complex projects across the nation, or helping their local communities on day to day emergencies such as pipe breaks, water damage, fires and more you’ll see the same family DNA embedded in everything we do.
Make it happen means never letting “no” be the answer. You’ll see our thinking caps on as we tackle some of the most challenging projects around the nation, our sleeves rolled up from not being afraid of the hard work, and our teams working hand in hand because frankly, nothing gets done without an amazing team.
Elevate means challenging the status quo when you know it can be better. It’s the constant improvement and growth our team makes through peer groups, shared sessions, training and overall a desire to be the best in the industry. It’s a state of movement, not a destination. We realize Critical Control needs to be constantly elevating to keep up with changes in your business.
Do the right thing – they are 3 simple questions we expect every one of our team members to ask themselves while out on the job.
It’s through this customer and value-centric lens that our company and entire team operates. It’s how we make sure we do right by our customers and can sleep soundly every night knowing Critical Control did the right thing.
Make it happen, elevate, do the right thing.
They are 8 short words, but they represent a lifetime of work. Critical Control’s Core Values call for an awakening and change in the restoration industry. From our teams on the ground, to the ones traveling the country this very minute, from our customer service representatives to our logistics and support teams, you’ll see our values hard at work for our customers.
