Aquire Restoration, Inc. Merger in Madison, WI

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Aquire Restoration of Madison, Inc. “Acquires” Capital Remediation, Inc.

Madison, WI – July 1, 2016 – Substantial growth and a friendship amongst owners generates a merger of two restoration companies to create one with a management hierarchy that provides the highest level of customer service in the restoration industry.

Aquire Restoration of Madison, Inc. has been in operation for five years and has seen unprecedented growth thanks to following their core values and beliefs.  In order to continue operating with customer satisfaction as the number one priority, a merger was required to combine industry expertise, assets, and to continue putting our customers/clients’ needs first.

The management team will consist of: Jeff Edmunds; President of Aquire Restoration of Madison, Inc., Josh Duggan (formerly President of Capital Remediation, Inc.) will assume the Vice-President role and Jason Schmitt will continue to be the General Manager of Operations.

“You’re only as good as your last project,” says Mr. Edmunds, “but we want to be remembered by our customers and clients as providing a level of service that has never been seen in our industry.”

“Many restoration companies have gone out of business or scaled back their operations in the last year while, Aquire Restoration, Inc. and Capital Remediation, Inc. have grown by leaps and bounds and continue to grab market share. This merger is the perfect meshing of two companies that have the same strategies, but with slightly different strengths.  We believe we are creating one company to serve all the restoration needs of the residents and businesses of Southern WI,” says Mr. Duggan

Also, with this merge comes a new facility. Due to the number of employees, assets and operations that will be combined together, neither current facility would be sufficient to house the new larger company under either existing roof.  As of July 5, 2016, Aquire Restoration of Madison, Inc. will operate solely from 925 Applegate Road, Madison, WI 53713.  Office hours will continue to be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, with, as always, emergency services available 24 hours a day to respond to any type of property damage.

“The increased staff will allow us to create a second-shift team to provide a higher level of customer service while not charging after-hours services calls until after 10 p.m. – which is unprecedented in our industry,” says Mr. Schmitt.

Our new facility, being the most centralized location out of any restoration company in the area is located on the south side of the beltline between Park Street and Fish Hatchery Road.  “This location will allow us to have the latest technology and processes in the industry” says Mr. Edmunds, “Quality isn’t expensive…It’s priceless!”

Water Restoration: Frozen Pipes, BURST!

We just wrapped up on a project that started in November. Frozen pipes had burst in the second story level which caused extensive water damage in this rental property. The family had left for the weekend, and unfortunately turned their furnace off. Upon their return the water had seeped from the 2nd level bathroom, down into the kitchen and leaving traces of water in the basement as well.
Initially we removed water from the premise, dried the structure, removed wet building materials. Then started the rebuild.

We were able to save the baseboards in the upstairs bathroom but needed to replace the vinyl flooring.

In the kitchen we initially pulled the cabinets off the wall, ripped out the drywall and insulation and replaced it. We also replaced the kitchen ceiling made it a drop ceiling and installed faux-tin ceilings!

Water Damage: Bathroom Restoration

After an unfortunate leak which came from the second story bathroom into the main floor bathroom, down through the ceiling this homeowner was faced with water damage on their ceilings, walls and floors.

Kitchen Fire: Before & After

After an unfortunate kitchen fire incident this homeowner was left with smoke damage and darkness throughout her kitchen. Soot covered her belongings and the scent was very strong.

After packing out her belongings (into salvageable vs. unsalvageable) we replaced and cleaned her belongings so we could get this homeowner back to her regular life!

 

The final product looks great! So glad we could restore and remodel her kitchen for her!

 

Fire Restoration: Garage Fire

We just wrapped up on a garage fire, which started from a car that started on fire, parked in front of the garage.

We had to get a new garage door, and redo some work within the inside as well.

Electric Garage Fire

In August we had the unfortunate occurrence of an electrical fire in a homeowners garage.

The fire started in one of their electrical sockets in the garage, and quickly after igniting the fire consumed the garage and started towards their kitchen (which was directly attached). Firefighters luckily came in time to put the blaze out before doing major damage to the house itself.

Our primary focus when we arrive on the scene is to make sure the building is secure. So we do so by boarding up the windows, doors and open areas to protect the structure from further damage.

After board up, it’s time to address the contents of the home. What has been damaged? What cannot be restored? What can be cleaned, deodorized and restored to pre-loss condition?

Documentation and removing all contents from the affected area is the next step in fire restoration.

We will also soda blast the affected areas. Soda blasting is using “baking soda” or bicarbonate soda in conjunction with air for the removal of fire and smoke damage. It not only removes the visual damage but has natural deodorizing properties as well. Since fire, smoke and ash are typically at the high end of the pH scale, baking soda works fast in neutralizing the odor.

After contents and home are cleaned and restored the homeowner can move back into their home!

This is the best part of our job. Bringing happiness, safety and comfort back into their life!
