Did your Tulsa home or building recently damage due to a fire, storm, or water leak? Is there extensive mold or smoke residue and other unpleasant problems that need to be remedied? As disaster restoration experts, we often see such problems in buildings and residences of every age and size. As a property owner, it’s likely that you feel devastated and skeptical about how much property restoration costs. It is a headache when you must stop using your structure for shelter or business activities and plan a transition to another temporary location. It is costly to lose the usage of your facility and to equip another place with what you need. While these damages may ultimately be covered by your property insurance, a secondary location won’t have the comforts they are used to. If this is your dilemma, you need to contact Reset Restoration at your earliest convenience. We can schedule an appointment as soon as possible and come to the site to begin assessing the damage. Our professional disaster restoration team wants to help you and your loved ones or employees feel like you’re back on the road to recovery.

For Distressed or Damaged Properties in Tulsa – We Can Help
Based in Tulsa, Reset Restoration is a disaster restoration company that specializes in mold removal, mold inspection, storm damage, water damage, fire damage cleanup and repair. We are proud to perform disaster restoration services to the damaged buildings of residential and commercial customers in the area. We take each service call seriously and promise to do our collective best to restore your property to its previous condition. All it takes is your initial contact.

Before we perform our initial inspection on all affected areas, please don’t assume the worst!
When a fire is able to penetrate a building, there will be immediate damage to the ceilings, walls, and floors in the affected rooms. Because smoke travels through air passageways, there can be extensive smoke damage in places where no burning occurred. Once the fire is extinguished, we can wear special equipment and start assessing the damage. If the fire department used tons of water to stop the fire from further ruining your property, the exteriors and interiors may sustain fire and smoke damage on top of water damage. Once we complete our ventilation and drying processes, we must remove all debris. These are multiple steps that must occur before we can start planning how to rebuild or remodel the facility. Due to insurance delays and availability of labor, it could be months or years before your building is fully restored to its former condition. Extensive smoke damage may require removing more materials, even interior insulation, than you first anticipate.
Water is the universal solvent, but it spreads rapidly and causes much damage. When there is a storm, a flood, or a leak, the saturation and moisture can do ruin some structures to the point that they must be gutted. Water can cause integral damage, especially to stick-built structures. There can also be mold, rot, and pest infestations in other facilities even if the skeleton of the building is made of concrete or metal. When you have water damage, you need to get the damage assessed and begin professional services such as water extraction and drying. These normal processes associated with disaster restoration and mold removal can prevent the spread of mold and help your family or Tulsa business to salvage some materials and property that would quickly become useless.
Survey the Extent of Water Damage
There are a whole set of environmental and construction problems that come with water damage. All of these must be solved before you can resume occupancy of the facility. Imagine a water pipe breaks and extensive flooding occurs within the building. Unfortunately, water starts climbing the walls and expanding throughout the structure. There is the typical damage to flooring, carpeting, walls, doors, and building contents. There will be furniture, artwork, paper files, and supplies that need to be removed. That comes later! First, we must stop the water from leaking and plan how to speed up the drying process. We have disaster recovery teams that come in and work systematically through the building to document the initial visble damage. Once all the water is removed, we conduct another assessment. Along the way, we will take photos and build up a list of the damage that has occurred in every part of the facility. Our meticulous process is guaranteed to help each client aggregate information that will be crucial to making a successful insurance claim.
Wherever water or moisture is left uncontrolled, there is the potential for mold to expand. The longer moisture is left untreated, the more mold can multiply, which threatens air quality and lends an unpleasant smell to ceilings, floors, and walls. If you don’t mitigate mold, it can spread through the home or building’s ventilation system and make other parts of the building appear “sick” as well. When you partner with us, we are standing by to send in a team of experts and have them check every attic, air duct, and occupied space for mold. Different types of mold may require treatment. Once we have completed the documentation process, we recommend which mold removal technique will remediate the problem and prevent the mold from re-colonizing the building’s interior. Some mold removal processes are more cost-effective than others, and, therefore, it’s important that we know what your budget limitations are. Tulsa property owners like you should keep in mind that the mold will return if there is too much moisture in the air after we perform the dirty work. Furthermore, property insurance carriers may pay only a percentage of mold removal expenses. Keep in mind that we can develop the estimate and wait until you get approval from your carrier before we commence our work.

At Reset Restoration, we understand that being unable to use your facility is frustrating.

However, you may not fully understand the cost of rebuilding until all mitigation and debris removal processes are complete. Reset Restoration employs a talented team of construction and design experts who are qualified to estimate rebuilding costs.

Remodeling Your Tulsa Property After Mold, Water, or Smoke Damage
While it’s possible to think of Tulsa mold removal, fire dmage remediation, and water mitigation as temporary services, they are really an investment in lnog-term property upkeep. We create a plan to efficiently remove all the undesired debris and outdated furniture and decor. Then, we plan where to touch up or install new fixtures, structures, and finishing materials to restore the prpoerty. When you’re planning the rebuilding process with a design and build team like ours, there is a big question of whether to just restore or remodel. For example, an older building may have featured a type of woodwork that is no longer performed by local carpenters. In this case, it would cost more to bring in an expert to perform the woodwork restoration than it would to install new wood finishes to complete the job. We can write up estimates for every room in need of disaster restoration, hleping you to compare the costs of rebuilding with the costs of remodeling. We can suggest different materials for each aspect of the job, which will help you control your costs and still achieve a brilliant new look when the rebuild/remodel process is finished.
