There are certain messes that require professional intervention: fire, flood, mold, biohazard, and other situations resulting from a weather-related or other disastrous event.

As damage to your business or home can result in loss of business, loss of property, and disruption of day-to-day life, it is important that you have a knowledgeable professional that you can trust to restore your property quickly and efficiently. We turned to our friends at MacFawn Fire & Flood Restoration for their advice on starting the restoration process:

1) Identify and address the source of the issue to prevent further damage.

2) Take your own photo/video documentation for your records.

3)  Get professional help immediately and keep communication lines open at all times throughout the process. A third party can help advise and advocate for you on how to properly navigate the process with your insurance company if applicable.

With mold, MacFawn Fire & Flood Restoration, according to their website, states that the “key principle for mold remediation projects is to correct the root cause of the growth. Even the best cleanup will be ineffective if the moisture problems are not addressed. We work to provide a clean and dry environment that obstructs new spore colonization".
