Our Maryland-based Team:

Our technicians are certified in WRT, ASD, and FRT.

Our owner Ted first owned another restoration franchise on the eastern shore of Maryland for eighteen years, and he has used his experience to shape our customer service. Our priority is to communicate to the resident everything they need to know to comfortably understand our cleaning, drying, and sanitizing processes. As a result, they are at ease and confident that their property is left in a better condition than it was before the accident. We can handle jobs both big and small.  For example, we completed the drying and sanitizing of several apartment buildings that lost their roofs in the Derecho of 2012.

We are proud of the diversity of our service area—from city to country, white to black to Hispanic, and wealthy to struggling. We honor the vital need for respect and care on every job of every size. We have excellent schools and transportation, and we are within an hour of the Chesapeake Bay, as well as the Appalachian Mountains. We were drawn to this area for the many opportunities its dense and diverse population provides.

We support the Anacostia Watershed Society, protecting our local water basin, and Joe’s Movement Emporium, providing summer camp activities to youth. We belong to our local chapter of NARPM and NARI.
