1-800-BOARDUP is a national disaster recovery organization with locations all across America. The focus of the organization is to assist victims of the disaster on one of the worst days of their lives. The network of trusted and proven professionals assist first responders, secure property, and provide valuable resources to victims struggling to rebuild their lives. Established in 2002 by Michael Hosto, a Red Cross Disaster Action Team Captain, and headquartered in Jacksonville Beach, FL.
Our BoardUp team is run by Tom Railing for the Southern Pennsylvania location with Bradley Dunham being our BoardUp connection for the fire and police departments. From this, we are creating relationships with fire departments all throughout our area. Having these relationships are so important because fire damage goes beyond what you can see. Mold can form as quickly as 24 hours after a fire, even if the building materials have been thoroughly dried out. If you have just experienced some type of fire damage, you know that sometimes the smoke, soot, and water used to put out the fire can cause damage just as serious as the fire itself.
Their training and experience help the crew to quickly inspect and contain the property by securing the structural integrity, protect it, and begin the restoration process. Our emergency response team will remove harmful carcinogens and leftover smoke odors using specialized air scrubbers and other expert equipment.
This team is on call 24/7 for any type of emergency, not just for fires. They can help with anything from trees falling onto houses after a storm to pumping out basements full of water. Do you need help?! They are the guys for you!
