My plumber insisted I call them after water damage in my ceiling. Presto! They were available within 90 minutes. Matt came in and quickly assessed the damage and gave me a reasonable quote, explained what to expect and scheduled a crew for my available time. Easy peasy in and out and super professional!

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!

Can’t rate this enough. The very first day I moved into my apartment we found the kitchen sink overflowing with black liquid all over the apartment. It was an incredibly stressful day that was put it ease by Dave who came and inspected the situation that night. He is not only good at his job but his customer service was excellent. The cleaning crew came the next day and set up and finished in under 40 minutes. Cannot thank this crew enough for saving the day!!

Our Technology

We are firm believers in investing in our own business to help our customers. A good example of that is our investment in Matterport 3D loss scanning technology. By taking a 3D scan of your loss, your insurance provider rarely needs to set foot in your home.

These scans create exact, detailed measurements as well as full 360-degree views of your loss, which is essential to minimizing costs, extra visits, and downtime before getting put back to normal. In addition, our management team views each loss for quality control purposes.

As of 2019, we are the 2nd largest user of Matterport technology in the country.
