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

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.

While a Disaster One team is on its way, make sure that 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’s Greensboro NC office serves the greater Piedmont Triad of North Carolina including Winston-Salem, High Point, Burlington, Asheboro, Mt. Airy, Mocksville, Lexington, and more.

  • My Disaster One Story – From Sandy

    Flooded Living Room
    As part of our 40th anniversary celebration, we’ve invited our clients to share a memorable Disaster One story with us. The following story is from Sandy, an insurance agent. “One of my insureds had a water claim and their insurance carrier assigned a disaster company to take care of her. The disaster company had so many claims that they could not give her the proper attention she needed. They had started the process of cutting the walls out, taking baseboards up, and setting up fans to dry her out. Then they just left her there for weeks, always promising to come back and send a crew to start packing her out. They never came. The carrier fired this disaster company. I started calling to try and find another disaster company to take over where this company left off. I was turned down by other companies; they did not want to get into a messy situation, trying to figure out what the other company had done. I called Ron Johnson in Disaster One’s Greensboro office and he said, “Sure we will help.” He sent someone over that day to inspect the damage and to scope out what needed to be done.  After that was done they went into action packing out my insured, helping her get moved out, and being there when they said they would be there. Ron and his crew saved the day for my insured; they took on a job when no one else wanted to touch it.  They kept me advised on their progress and when I would be able to get my insured back into her home. No job is too tough for Disaster One.” Thank you, Sandy, for your kind words and for choosing Disaster One to serve your insured.
  • Disaster One Celebrates 40 Years of Restoration

    Disaster One 40th Anniversary
    Q: What do Kanye West, Orlando Bloom, Tom Brady, Liv Tyler, Ludacris, Kal Penn, John Mayer, and Disaster One have in common? A: We all turn 40 in 2017! That’s right – founded in 1977, Disaster One has been restoring futures for 40 years by providing disaster restoration services to homes and businesses affected by water damage, fire and smoke damage, storm damage, and mold damage. Over half a million new businesses are started each month, but about 50% of them don’t survive five years according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. And only a small portion – one-third – survive 10 years or more. That makes Disaster One’s 40 years in business an even more astonishing accomplishment.

    Great team of dedicated people

    Dedicated Disaster One Employees“I’m most proud of the team that we’ve put together,” said Disaster One president Rasmus Fenger while reflecting on the company’s milestone anniversary. “There is no ‘secret sauce’ in restoration – we have to do so many different things, and do them all well. Only by having a great team of dedicated people can it all come together.” Today, Disaster One has grown from a small carpet cleaning service in Greensboro, NC, to a leading full-service restoration company with over 135 full-time employees in 9 offices serving the entire southeast United States. The company boasts three of only 655 people nationwide who have received the coveted Certified Restorer© designation from the Restoration Industry Association. In the past five years the company nearly doubled its number of locations, opening branches in Wilmington NC in 2012, Roanoke VA and Tampa FL in 2013, and most recently Myrtle Beach SC in early 2017.

    Looking to the future

    Looking to the future, Fenger stated, “We plan to keep growing, but not just for the sake of getting bigger. We grow so that we can be an exciting place to work and so that we can continue to be stronger and serve our clients better. This growth will include geographic expansion throughout the Southeast, but also, and perhaps more importantly, growing the branches we already have.” “The feedback we get from happy clients means the world to me – not just what we’ve done but the way we’ve done it,” Fenger continued. “The only thing that could slow us down would be if we have trouble finding the right talent to help us grow, so we’re always looking for talent.” At Disaster One, we’re humbled by the long-standing trust our clients have placed in us and we always strive to honor that trust by providing a great Disaster One Experience. Clearly, we’re not going anywhere and we’ll be here when you need us. Call us at 800-277-4787 any time you need our help, 24/7/365.
  • NC Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 7-13, 2017

    Hurricane Preparedness Week 2017

    North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper has proclaimed May 7-13 as Hurricane Preparedness Week.

      With many NC communities still struggling to recover from last October’s Hurricane Matthew, it’s already time to start preparing for the 2017 hurricane season. “Last fall, North Carolinians experienced first-hand the life-changing devastation of Hurricane Matthew, and we know from experience that any storm should be taken seriously,” said Gov. Cooper in a statement issued by the North Carolina Department of Public Safety. The National Weather Service has developed a unique focus for each day of Hurricane Preparedness Week. Disaster One urges all North Carolina residents to familiarize themselves with these preparedness steps: Sunday: Determine your risk – “Find out today what types of wind and water hazards could happen where you live.” Monday: Develop an evacuation plan – “The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone.” Tuesday: Assemble disaster supplies – “You’re going to need supplies not just to get through the storm but for the…aftermath.” Wednesday: Secure an insurance check-up – “Call your insurance company or agent…to make sure you have enough homeowners insurance.” Thursday: Strengthen your home – “If you plan to ride out the storm in your home, make sure it is in good repair.” Friday: Check on your neighbor – “There are…many ways you can help your neighbors before a hurricane approaches.” Saturday: Complete your written hurricane plan – “The time to prepare for a hurricane is before the season begins.” Disaster One responded to calls for help with hurricane damage and severe flooding in and around Lumberton, Fayetteville, Wilmington, and Raleigh, NC following Hurricane Matthew. While we hope you don’t experience this in 2017, rest assured we’re here and ready to respond whenever you need our help with storm damage repair.
