With a team of both qualified technicians and general contractors, we can help your property through multiple damaging scenarios

We did not become one of the top 100 franchises in the country by not providing an unparalleled customer service experience with every loss incident that affects Raleigh homes and businesses. We have an ever-expanding roster of qualified technicians and contractors capable of helping to return your property to preloss condition regardless of the disaster you have faced. Our team features four master certified technicians in our core niches of restoration, providing experience and knowledge when needed most for damaged properties. The restoration services that we provide can make a difference in the ultimate time and cost of recovery.


Because water damage is a usual threat to the greater Raleigh area, we respond to multiple disasters every year. Our fast response to these situations can make a considerable difference in the overall time and money involved with restoring your property to its original condition. The majority of our technicians have water restoration certifications, ensuring that we always have qualified professionals to handle your emergencies as they happen. We also have a master certified water restoration technician trained through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to appropriately steer this department.

How Does Mitigation Work?

Mitigation is one of the critical tasks that our professionals undertake when we first arrive at a water damaged Raleigh home. This phase of work aims to reduce the overall loss that your property experiences, including the protection of contents and personal belongings throughout the house. Mitigation as a whole describes many specific tasks involving both our qualified restoration technicians and residential contractors to perform repairs and reconstruction as required.

What Tools Best Dry My Residence?

Drying your Raleigh home or business is not a universal approach that always uses the same tools and equipment in the same ways. A careful evaluation occurs during the job scoping phase and after mitigation completes to ensure that the right tools and devices are used to address lingering moisture and dampness concerns throughout the property. While we have stables and fundamental tools to help with the drying process, where their place and how they get used vary from site to site. Some of these standard devices and pieces of equipment include:

  • Air Movers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Positive Pressure Systems
  • Floor Mat Drying Systems


The work required in a Raleigh property after a fire loss must begin as soon as possible. The longer that a structure sits after extinguishment, the more widespread and concentrated fire loss effects can become. Our responding SERVPRO technicians can implement emergency services that start with the arrival of our team. Between qualified restoration technicians and experienced building trade contractors on our roster, we can offer immediate action including: 

  • Temporary Construction Solutions
  • Debris Removal
  • Air Quality Control
  • Content Management

Demolition or Surface Cleaning?

Assessing the property for damage is a careful process conducted by qualified professionals like our project manager and crew chief. We also consult with the homeowner to determine pre-existing conditions within their Raleigh homes or businesses. The objective in thorough inspection is learning whether surface cleaning to remove soiling and residues is cost-efficient against demolition and reconstruction. With a team of in-house contractors capable of assisting in this area, it is often more cost-effective to choose controlled demolition and later reinstallation.

Does SERVPRO Perform Reconstruction After a Fire?

These same contractors can help with full-scale reconstruction, repair, and rebuilding after fire loss effects get removed from your Raleigh property. We can also help with remodeling and renovations to help turn the negatives of fire loss into a lasting positive for your home. We also can steer our clients to reputable construction companies when extreme build back is required.


There is no mistaking the substantial storm systems that can impact the Raleigh area. With many commercial properties spanning thousands of square feet, our involvement as a large loss recovery team can be beneficial. Many restoration teams lack the resources and equipment to manage substantial loss incidents, but with networking through sister franchises, we can pool:

  • Resources
  • Personnel
  • Experience
  • Equipment

Addressing Severe Weather as It Occurs

The Raleigh area has seen multiple hurricane-level storm events over the past decades, requiring restoration teams to stay alert and aware of rapidly changing weather conditions. Our fast response in these situations can help repair structural concerns to reduce flooding and other detrimental conditions resulting from storm loss incidents.

Removing Floodwater and Damages

Flooding is often an unavoidable concern for Raleigh homes and businesses once structural breaches exist. In addition to the damaging presence of natural flooding, water penetration from areas like the roof or siding can be equally destructive. Removing these threats involves multiple extraction tools in our inventory, including submersible pumps, wet vacuums, and weighted extractors.


Disasters can strike all types of commercial properties, leaving hundreds at risk for direct exposure to loss effects or threatening conditions. As a team with the capabilities of addressing larger commercial structures after fire, water, storm, and flood incidents, we can respond quickly to help however your Raleigh property needs. Our professionals have helped to restore and recover massive commercial structures, including:

  • Hospitals
  • College Campuses 
  • Warehouses
  • Hotels 
  • Nursing Homes 

What Does Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned Mean?

More than ever, providing sanitary environments for your staff and customers in your Raleigh business is critical. On the heels of a global pandemic, many companies recognized where they lacked the appropriate focus and attention on surface cleaning and disinfection. Our defensive cleaning program entitled Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned offers the top-tier levels of sanitation, disinfection, and surface cleaning techniques in the restoration industry.

Cleaning and Recovery on Your Schedule

One of the advantages of choosing our premier cleaning services for your Raleigh business is our technicians' flexibility. We understand that the ideal times to perform a thorough cleaning on your property is after you have closed for the day, so we work around your schedule to meet the appropriate times when cleaning best suits your business.

Disasters can strike your home or business without warning, but our SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest team is ready 24/7. Give us a call whenever you need us at (919) 790-1222.
