Do you have an emergency right now? Call us at 800-277-4787

We bring order and assurance to chaotic situations.

A storm, flood, or fire disaster does not work with you on your schedule. More often than not it hits you when you least expect it. A fire in your home or business can destroy your livelihood, your home and your quality of life. Mold can be detrimental to your health and can spread like wildfire through any residential or commercial building. Working with professionals in these trying times can make all the difference.

Has disaster struck? After calling your insurance agent, the next call should be to Disaster One.

While a Disaster One team is on its way, make sure the affected building is safe. Limit movement after a fire or water damage as some structures can become unstable. The key to limiting fire and water damage is speed. Emergency services within the first 24 hours after a fire has been put out or a flood happens can stop damage from spreading, stabilize your building structures and result in a more efficient, affordable restoration process.

As a fully licensed, insured and bonded general contractor, Disaster One is capable of handling any type of restoration project precipitated by natural or man-made disasters including emergency response, repairing water damage, storm damage, fire damage, smoke damage, and mold remediation repair and restoration.

Disaster One serves the Tampa Bay area, Sarasota to Tarpon Springs, New Port Richey, Lakeland to Winter Haven, and Orlando. Whether you need restoration from a burst pipe, fire, smoke, storm or flood damage, our priority will always be getting you back to pre-loss condition with the least possible discomfort or down time. We are available 24/7, 365 days a year.

  • 7 tips for avoiding contractor scams after a hurricane

    Hurricane damage
    In the wake of a hurricane or even a tropical storm you’ll see a lot of contractors offering to help with repairs. Some are very reputable, some…not so much so. How do you avoid being scammed? Disaster One offers the following advice:
    • Be suspicious of any high pressure contractor who tries to rush you to make decisions, particularly if the repairs are not an emergency or the work is temporary
    • Ask for references; an ethical contractor will be happy to provide them
    • Do not deal with a contractor who asks you to pay for the entire job upfront
    • Immediately dismiss any contractor who claims to be backed by FEMA – they do not endorse individual contractors
    • Look for the business name and phone number on the vehicle of anyone who approaches you about repairs
    • Ask to see the contractor’s driver’s license – write down the license number and the license plate number of their vehicle
    • Never allow a contractor to discourage you from contacting your insurance company; you should contact your insurance company immediately
    If you ever experience flood or storm damage, Disaster One is here for you with 24/7 emergency response. Integrity is #1 in our mission statement and we encourage you to check our references. Call us any time at 800-277-4787 any time you need our help.
