The sudden, overwhelming impact of a catastrophe must be handled with care, speed, and efficiency. Guardian Restoration is sensitive to the traumatic effects of disasters and balancing them against the need for comprehensive action. As such, we offer a full-service approach that consolidates the various specialist expertise and equipment needed in one place with the main point of contact. We also coordinate with your insurance company and help you file a claim based on our assessments.
In effect, Guardian Restoration acts as a buffer between the raw aftermath of the catastrophe and the recovery, repair, and restoration process to give you as much peace of mind as possible in difficult circumstances.
Regardless of whether your property has been hit by a natural or man-made disaster, its effects usually fall into the categories or fire and smoke damage, water damage, and mold and biohazards. In reality, these often overlap. Each case is unique not only to the catastrophe – such as hurricanes, lightning storms, ice storms, explosions, floods, infrastructure failures, and transport accidents – but also to your property. By following an industry-tested protocol, Guardian Restoration quickly creates a comprehensive recovery plan that addresses every aspect of the damage to a carefully managed schedule. These aspects can include but are not limited to:
• Full assessment
• The gathering of appropriate personnel and specialist equipment
• Containing the area
• Boarding up and/or bracing structures
• Immediately addressing structural damage or threats to structural damage
• Contents removal and pack-out of belongings
• Water extraction
• Ash and soot removal
• Mold and asbestos removal
• Debris removal
• Drying and dehumidifying
• Contents repair
Keeping you informed
Guardian Restoration regards providing regular updates through our project manager – and being available to answer any questions or concerns – as essential to the rehabilitation process. We understand that your property and possessions aren’t merely ‘items’ but represent a significant part of your life. We provide the expert detail to assist with insurance claims and make the entire process as painless and as compassionate as possible.
What you can do
Firstly, your safety is paramount. Evacuate the property if there are any signs of structural instability or electrical or chemical hazards. Monitor any public announcements about evacuations of entire areas and be vigilant to any emerging dangers. The end of the immediate catastrophe is not the end of the danger. If – and only if – it is safe, you can photograph the damage. Please wear protective items such as gloves to prevent contamination. If there is internal flooding only, open the doors and windows, and remove rugs and carpets that have come loose. But above all else, there is no need to be heroic. Please wait for our Guardian Restoration experts to arrive on the scene.
Guardian Restoration’s catastrophe response is tailored to maximize the chances of a full recovery of your property and contents. Our project managers are the steady hand to guide you through the aftermath of a disaster. Our emergency services offset the emotional turmoil with a caring, dependable and transparent service to get your life and property back to normal.
