Wolf Disaster Services: Restoring Homes and Lives

By Marina I. Jokic

Certified with the IICRC Institute of Cleaning and Restoration and AAA-accredited with the Better Business Bureau, Wolf Disaster Services handles fire and flood remediation in the state of New York. A well-known and reputable company, Wolf is run by Richard Murray who started his company in an effort to help the local community. His own home having been badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy, Murray wanted to become a resource for similar victims of natural disasters.

"Our home in South Massapequa was badly damaged by Superstorm Sandy, and we did not have many honest, local resources to turn to," Murray said. "Most of my job is spent consulting and guiding homeowners on finding sources of water damage and how to correctly diagnose a mold problem."

Wolf Disaster operates differently than large chain companies. Murray tries to provide customized solutions to his customers that address their unique situations. Instead of adopting a one-size-fits-all approach, Wolf Disaster tailors its services to a wide variety of cases to provide the most efficient solution at a competitive price.

In addition to repairing water and fire damaged homes, Wolf Disaster is licensed by the state of New York to manage mold testing and remediation. Providing professional black mold removal includes air sampling, swab testing, hidden moisture evaluation, thermal imagining, and assessment. After the initial visit and inspection, the company drafts a work plan, schedules the work, and prepares the area according to strict EPA guidelines.

In the case of fire, volatile compounds and in many cases carcinogens are the byproducts of the damage. When common household and structural elements of a house are burned by fire, carcinogens are released from the burning materials. Depending on what was burned, the lingering odors can be irritating to the residents and should be cleaned by professionals as soon as possible. Another common side effect of fire damage is water and mold damage. In order to extinguish a fire, a house may have to be flooded by water. If not professionally dried, soaked areas and materials are highly susceptible to mold.

"The decision you make now to hire a professional restoration contractor will have ramifications for years to come, [so] choose wisely and make the right decisions [from the get-go]," Murray said. "Don't make decisions based on fear; [we] know how you feel, we've been there too."

With 24-hour emergency assistance, Wolf Disaster is well equipped to handle any type of situation and respond in the nick of time. Staying abreast of the latest technology used in the industry, the company also prides itself on its prompt and accommodating customer service and financial transparency. If you ever have the misfortune of enduring a natural disaster or a freak accident that wrecks your home, Wolf Disaster will be there in your time of need.
