It is this understanding of complex major and specialist losses, plus our experience in restoration, that ensures we can provide an effective single source solution for both insurers and customers. We can advise insurers and policy holders; providing reports on a realistic reserve based on an initial inspection.

We provide a combined response, recovery, and restoration service for all types of homes or businesses which have suffered from damage, to limit destruction of the building and contents and provide effective restoration. This process includes:
To prevent long-term damage, it is essential to take immediate action. We will commence with salvaging as much building contents as possible and extracting water or debris, with specialist waste disposal if required. We can provide a contents removal and storage service, safely housed within our large warehouse facility. This is available to store all kinds of overflow items from your home or business whilst we deal with the restoration process.
These will include the installation of temporary power supplies, gas and electrical services, as well as safety testing and security boarding. Specialist target or injection drying of structural elements will also be conducted if the building is damaged by water (either from flooding for fire-fighting efforts).
Post-disaster surveying and testing will determine the extent of the damage. We will conduct inspection reports, surveys and thermal imaging, as well as leak detection and moisture mapping in the case of water damage. We will also review for any initial health risks for those living or working in the building. The results of our analysis are presented in a detailed technical report that outlines the restoration options available.
Preventing any secondary damage from occurring is vital to ensure the safety of those at the site, as well as securing structural elements and contents. This is achieved by controlling the environment within the affected areas.
Elimination of microorganisms, pathogens, mould and spores will help give you confidence in the safety of yourself, residents or employees returning to the site once fully restored.
We will ensure the restoration of the building and its contents, including cleaning and repairing machinery, electronics, furnishings, and critical documents to help restore your home or business to its pre-disaster condition.
Eliminating odour molecules, such as from soot or smoke, will help to remove any lingering evidence of damage.
