What Area Do You Serve?

How Big of a Problem Is Fire Damage?
Fire damage can be extremely unsafe and unhealthy in a number of ways. Damage done to infrastructure can weaken its support and may cause a collapse after the fire which can seriously injure or kill someone. In addition, water damage caused by fire hoses can further weaken infrastructure and lead to mold and mildew problems.
Airborne soot particles are extremely hazardous to your health. If breathed in they can cause a variety of respiratory issues that can lead to asthma, bronchitis, heart attack, cancer, or even death.
How Much of a Health Hazard Is Water Damage?
Standing water should be removed immediately as water can comprise the strength of infrastructure and cause the eventual collapse of important support structures that could cause injury or death. Unwanted water and moisture buildup can also lead to mold and mildew accumulation which can cause mild to severe respiratory and eye and skin irritation to those exposed.
Should I Call My Insurance Company Before Contacting A Restoration Company?
Yes. Although, you are not required to use the restoration company that your insurance provider recommends. You have the right to choose whichever restoration company you want. It is best to contact your insurance provider, and, speak with your agent regarding your policy and options before contacting us.
What Is A Deductible?
The deductible is the amount of money you owe the restoration company after your insurance company has paid their share (in accordance with your policy).
