Welcome To Our Family Business

Hello and welcome to Cleaning & Restoration Specialist, your go-to source for top-notch water restoration services in San Antonio, Texas, and beyond. I’m Tom Lott, proud owner, and co-founder of this family-operated business.


Born and raised right here in the heart of San Antonio, I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit. College wasn’t my thing; I craved the thrill of owning my own business. So, I took a leap of faith and started a janitorial company. But it didn’t stop there – I had bigger dreams.


My journey into the world of water restoration began when I noticed customers seeking carpet and rug cleaning services. Eager to meet their needs, I dove headfirst into learning the ropes, becoming certified by the IICRC and expanding my expertise to include tile, grout, and upholstery cleaning.


It wasn’t long before I persuaded my high school sweetheart and now wonderful wife, Yolanda, to join me on this adventure. Together, we transformed our small operation into a full-fledged carpet cleaning business, with a dedication to continuous growth and innovation. When customers started reaching out for water damage restoration, we saw an opportunity to expand our services and provide even more value to our community.


Driven by our shared passion for helping others, Yolanda and I have built Cleaning & Restoration Specialist on a foundation of trust, integrity, and genuine care for our customers. Our motto, “water damage is the work we do, but what we do is take care of people in times of distress,” isn’t just a slogan – it’s a way of life for us.


Thank you for considering Cleaning & Restoration Specialist for your water restoration needs. We’re here to lend a helping hand whenever you need us, because to us, it’s not just about restoring your property – it’s about restoring your peace of mind.

Meet the Heart of Our Business

Hi there! I’m Yolanda, the co-owner and heart behind Cleaning & Restoration Specialist, your trusted partner in water restoration solutions. While I may have been born in Midrid, Spain, my journey led me to the beautiful state of Texas at a young age, where I’ve proudly called it home ever since.


My career path took an unexpected turn when my husband, Tom, convinced me to leave my longtime job at USAA and join forces with him in our family business. Together, we’ve embarked on a rewarding journey of entrepreneurship, fueled by our shared passion for making a positive impact in people’s lives.


At Cleaning & Restoration Specialist, I wear many hats, from managing customer relations to ensuring the smooth operation of our day-to-day tasks. But what truly drives me is our commitment to going above and beyond for our clients. Whether it’s providing a listening ear or lending a helping hand, I believe in treating each customer like a member of our own family.


Outside of work, you’ll often find me cuddling up with our beloved English bulldog, Brooks, or supporting our daughter, Brynn, in her endeavors.


Thank you for considering Cleaning & Restoration Specialist for your water restoration needs. We’re here to support you every step of the way, because to us, it’s not just about fixing water damage – it’s about restoring your peace of mind and helping you navigate through life’s unexpected challenges.
