Our Process

After receiving your emergency water damage call, we will send a team to your Forest Acres property within the hour.

Drying is one of the most important steps in the water damage restoration process because it will significantly reduce the risk of future damages and mold growth. After the area is dried, our team will clean and sanitize all affected areas – this step can be adjusted based on the type of water that has entered your forest Acres home of business. Once all of the previous steps are complete, we will begin the restoration process. This will include replacing and restoring and structures that have been damaged or removed – like drywall, insulation, flooring, carpet, etc. In some cases, the restoration process could include restoring an entire room, depending on the damages.

First class service! My only regret was not calling them 4 or 5 hours earlier. Brian, Chris, and team were quick to assess the situation and work with me on a custom remediation plan. They explained everything, including pros and cons of the various options, clearly and completely. I hope I never need this type of service again. But, if I do, I know who to call.

First Response did a superior job of remediating water damage to my home. They were the second company that I called but the only one that I will call in the future. They take their jobs seriously and completely understand the meaning and value of delivering outstanding service. Not only did they correct the problems created by the first remediation company, but they went above and beyond to ensure that their work was done properly and expertly. Robert and Josh and the entire team earn my highest recommendations for service and expertise.

May 31, 2012 my husband and I were notified that we were being forced to move out of our home, at no fault of our own. Needless to say, this news caused a lot of stress for us! My employer, Robert Pulliam - President of First Response, understood the emotions I was going through and offered the company's services to assist in the process of moving. He also allowed me the time off needed to prepare for the move. My husband and I worked diligently over the next month to have everything packed up and ready to be moved out. On the afternoon of June 29th, Robert and a couple of our co-workers came to our home and moved everything out. It was such a tremendous blessing to have the extra man-power!! First Response has extraordinary leadership and support staff, and I am certainly proud to be part of such an amazing group of people!
