Water Remediation Company

Water Remediation Company

From Brisbanes CBD to Northern NSW, and Toowoomba to Redland Bay

Disaster Recovery Qld has been servicing water effected properties since 2011.
Water Remediation Companies in these areas have exploded in the past 5 years due to the impact of the weather.

Building companies have bought out national water restoration companies and decimated the Specialised Restoration Provider. Insurance companies are looking for faster, less payouts, and more cash settlements to remove liability and responsibility they advertise to their policy holders.
Our company has also taken a beating, we have loss key staff members to builders and national building/restoration companies in the attempt to provide better services for their clients. This sounds like a good plan, but without significant support and guidance we are seeing a lack of standards and “finished” claims.

Disaster Recovery Qld is family owned and operated with the owner Phill McGurk continually demonstrating 25+ years of experience to our staff members through on-line educational, an industry specific learning management system (LMS).
Disaster Recovery Qld proudly supports CARSI (www.carsi.com.au) the leading provider of CEC’s (continual educational credits) within the Cleaning and Restoration Industry Internationally.
Our technicians are provided with Certifications from the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certificates), the industries highest and only government recognised “Best Practices” for cleaning and restoration contractors.
