Water Damage

Our top priority is to quickly mitigate and minimize the seen or unseen water damage present in your home. We do this by extracting all the water in the area, applying disinfectant, removing any non-salvageable materials, and using equipment to dry the materials that can be saved. This not only prevents harmful mold from growing in the damaged area, but it also saves you money in the long run.

Fire Mitigation

After the fire trucks leave, your property will likely suffer from not only fire and smoke damage, but also widespread water damage and flooding from efforts to put the fire out. CWF Restoration has the specialized expertise to restore your home to its pre-fire condition. This includes eliminating water damage, repairing fire damage, eradicating smoke odors, and deep-cleaning soot from upholstery and carpet.

Repair and Rebuild Services

In the majority of water and fire damage cases, a home will need to have repair and reconstruction services after the dry out and mitigation has been completed. We offer full-service water and fire restoration treatments, which includes the reconstruction of your affected property.

Crime Scene Trauma Cleanup

We partner with police, local governments, communities, and other groups to clean up crime scenes, including after death or trauma.  Our professionals are fully equipped with the proper supplies, tools and training. These experienced and certified employees will remove any health risks including life-threatening diseases which may be present.

Hardwood Floor Drying

When hardwood floors become wet, they expand and swell at the edges of the boards, which could cost thousands of dollars in repairs. By using our proven drying and restorative method of using a combination of low grain refrigerant dehumidifiers & the wood floor Proven Drying System™, we can effectively dry your wood floor in addition to the wood subfloor underneath it as well.

Sewage Cleanup

Water that contains a significant degree of chemical, biological and/or physical contamination needs to be cleaned up quickly to decrease the chance of spreading disease and producing mold. Response time is critical, so it’s important to get emergency restoration service providers into your home as soon as possible to reduce repair costs.

Storm Damage Repair

Property damage caused by severe weather can be devastating to your family or business. Storm damage restoration can be complex, so you need a company that can deliver repairs you can trust. From roof tarping to water removal and structural drying, CWF Restoration has you covered.

Anti-Microbial Treatments

When water is introduced into a warm, stable environment, bacteria and fungi are likely to grow. When these organisms start growing, they can infest your home and cause harmful disease and promote further damage to your home. We use industry-leading anti-microbial treatments to eradicate and suppress the growth of harmful microorganisms.

I was in a bit of a bind after I was sold a condo that had significant water damage that was not disclosed to me during the sale and not caught by my home inspector. I called another well-known water restoration company, but they could not fit me in for a week; the morning of my appointment, they texted me (not even a phone call) and said they needed to push my appointment because they were backed up from the weekend. I was obviously upset, as I had already waited a week, so my realtor referred me to CWFR. The project manager was at my condo within 90 minutes, did a thorough investigation, then sat with me for almost 30 minutes to go through everything in the contract with me. The quote was FAR less than the other company provided me, CWFR offered financing with 0% interest for 12 months and the crew was at my condo completing the remediation the next day. I have had a lot of bad experiences over the past few weeks as the seller of my condo lied about many things, but working with CWFR and their wonderful, responsive team really put my mind at ease. Thank you to everyone who provided me with support; I will certainly be referring you to my friends and family.

Matt Skoog was amazing. He was very professional and understood our needs and worked to ensure that all of our mold was treated. Service was immediate and attic looks great. He also assisted to ensure that we were not overcharged for services. Would recommend this company.

Dave was extremely responsive answering all my questions, and put together a thorough diagnostic before his crew helped me clean-up damage caused by a pipe leak. They were professional, timely, and were very considerate throughout the process. I highly recommend CWF Restoration.

Jordan and the Mitigation team were very good.• They tolerated many questions and we made good decisions together.Sal and the Restoration workers were excellent.• The job was done to spec, quickly and with skill.• They cleaned up nicely.• I worried that our granite countertops would crack during removal. They said it if did, they have a granite guy who can repair or help facilitate a replacement (at our expense). But they were skilled enough that it didn't break. A huge relief!• The Project Manager will find replacement materials. I handed them a detailed list, but he would have done it.Here's what I don't like:• Estimate is not itemized. it reads, “1 ea. @ 350 Sq Ft,” and so on; then there's one total price.• They needed more $ for the flooring and asked me to sign a change order to purchase it. Also not itemized, just “Flooring @ $xx.”• They purchased more than needed and told me to return it for a store credit. I called the main office and they did return the extra materials and issued me a credit.Still, they seem to be the best around. We shopped two other companies. They're a big, well-resourced and organized outfit. They care about their reputation and asked if there was anything else they could have done better. I'm glad I picked them.Advice:• Understand that counters need to be removed if floors are replaced. There is no guarantee (with anyone) that it won’t be damaged, and you’ll have to shop, pay and wait for a replacement. Nobody mentions that part.• If you want to know what the materials estimate is based on, ask or if you acquire any materials yourself, have it removed from the estimate. But understand that material is just a portion of their operating costs.• If asked to authorize extra charges, buy it yourself and have your own receipt to return extras and get your money back.

Matt came by today to review some mold damage we have from a leaking toilet; he was thorough, friendly and informative. He came out super quickly and scheduled me a crew for the same day to do mitigation work. I'm grateful to Matt for helping me during this really challenging time after becoming a new homeowner!

Matt Skoog is very empathetic, relatable and professional. My only concern is that I waited 3 days after my water/sewage incident to call CFAWR!! Wish I would have called immediately. Don’t hesitate to have Matt assess the damage and recommend a course of cleanup/ restoration, especially if your wood floors have been affected by water/sewage overflow. Time is of the essence!
