Our loss adjusters will carry out a full property evaluation in order to be sure that nothing at all is overlooked from your insurance claim.

With the majority of fires and floods, there can be further hidden problems (such as smoke damage) that might not be discovered to begin with.

Fire Restoration

A fire starting in your property or business is one of the most unpleasant ordeals ever. Our Durham fire restoration professionals are right here to help return your building back to its original condition in the smallest time frame that we can manage, to reduce disruption to your home or business life. With our convenient helpline, we are here to answer your concerns night or day.

Once you make the initial call to our helpful and friendly call centre, we can arrange to secure your property or home and make certain the surrounding area is safe. This will not only prevent any further damage, but also remove any danger to the public.

Fire damage is not the only problem to deal with, as water and smoke damage will always play a major part in the destruction as well when the fire is extinguished. Our Durham MMS building contractors have all of the skills and experience to restore your property back to its pre-loss state.

Water Damage Repair

There are a number of reasons why your property or home could be damaged from water. This could be down to localised flooding due to severe weather or an escape of water from a burst pipe. Either way, our Durham flood restoration team are here to help you in your emergencies.

Not only can water damage cause a risk to your home, it can also be a risk to your health. It can stimulate the growth of life forms such as bacteria and mould. There is also the danger of secondary damage for example dry rot, if your home has timber frames.

Our Durham water damage repair specialists would begin the restoration process by identifying the source of the water in order to prevent it from causing more damage. The drying process can then be started with the use of the very latest drying technology such as our specialist dehumidifier equipment. Once your property is completely dry, we can then start the process of restoring your property back to the way it was before.
