Established in 1979, Jarvis Property provides disaster recovery and restoration services for customers across the commercial, government and residential segments.

The group carries out demolition and mould remediation operations, as well as temporary roof repairs and water extraction in the event of a fire or a storm.

Jarvis Property offers planning and disaster recovery programmes, which allows business owners and government agencies to respond quickly to an emergency and reduce damage caused by power interruptions, smoke and bad weather.

The company maintains a fleet of cleaning and recovery equipment, including generators, air-movers, scrubbers and semi-mounted desiccant dehumidifiers.

Jarvis Property operates from three locations in the US, namely Michigan, Florida and Iowa.

Matt Jarvis noted: “By staffing highly-trained professionals, we can become the leading experts in the disaster restoration industry”.

Formed in 1948, BMS Cat provides restoration and reconstruction services to customers worldwide.

Its operations, which deal with fire, storm and water damage, include the ventilation of structures, the drying out of affected areas and the removal of destroyed or unsalvageable items.

The group also carries out document recovery and transport disaster response services for clients.
