Fire Damage

With statistics showing that almost sixty-five percent of fires affect one-family homes, destruction due to fire is a major problem.

Apart from the damage caused by the fire, the smoke and soot it creates will also cause serious problems. In addition, there will be significant water damage due to the water used to extinguish the fire.

Our experts will perform the required tasks to restore your home and make it livable:

Storm/Flood Damage

Flashfloods usually cause a lot of destruction, making it necessary to take immediate disaster restoration steps. Our experts remain extra cautious as flashfloods can carry a variety of harmful pollutants such as pathogens, fertilizers, raw sewage, dead animals, debris, motor oil, and other highly toxic materials.

Due to the involved complexities when different types of contaminants are involved, our experts follow advanced cleaning and disinfection procedures that provide the required and desired results. A few of the tasks that are performed include:
