Who We Serve


Homeowners who have experienced fire and/ or flood loss (no matter the extent of damage) oftentimes find themselves frustrated, anxious or scared.

We understand that and are here to help. A home is a refuge, the one place that offers a haven from a sometimes turbulent world.

And our household items are our memories in physical form, with stories and emotions attached to each item.

Consider the meals and conversations shared around the kitchen table, the crib that your children have slept in over the years, the stockpot your grandma used to cook your favorite meals that you now prepare for your own family, and that stuffed animal that comforts your child at night. These little things mean A LOT.

After all, Mom taught us that it's what's on the inside that counts. That's why our restoration service focuses on everything inside the structure, the items that make your house a home.

Insurance Adjusters

We serve Insurance Adjusters who are looking for a reliable contents cleaning company to restore their clients' items rather than discarding them and spending more money on brand-new items.

Contents Cleaning, by comparison, costs much less and is just as important to your clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is one of the most common restoration FAQs we hear. The answer is no! It is your choice which restoration company you use. Even if it is implied by your insurance adjuster, you get final say which company you want to restore your property to pre-damage state.

Fire & Smoke Restoration FAQs

Fire and smoke recovery includes cleaning and removing soot present on your belongings. Much of the time, fire damages are also accompanied by losses due to water and chemicals from firefighting efforts. We then provide water damage cleanup, drying, and restoration services.

Water Damage Restoration FAQs

As a matter of fact, no. Your insurance company prefers you call a restoration company to begin water cleanup and fix your water damage as quickly as possible. If possible, turn off any water valves you can access.

If applicable, call a plumber to fix the leak. The faster our crews arrive, the more destruction we can help prevent to your business or property. You'll still want to call your insurance company, but you shouldn't wait for an adjuster to arrive before beginning any kind of water damage restoration.

If you plan to file a claim, they'll need an assessment of the damage and restoration estimate anyway. Calling us speeds up the process. 832.415.9116

Storm and Hurricane Restoration FAQs

Contact a restoration company immediately. Restoration companies get multiple calls from businesses impacted by severe storms and natural disasters, so it's important to get on their list as quickly as possible.
