About Us

We’ve been in the fire and water restoration business for close to 30 years. We’ve ranked as one of the largest flood and fire restoration firms in the southeast. We weren’t always big, but we were always great at our fire and water restoration (that’s how we were able to grow).

Al Bradham purchased Carpet Care Services in 1994. It was a one-man, one-truck operation, which is now known as Carpet Care Services and DisasterCare®. Today, they are working hand in hand. DisasterCare® has become one of the largest flood and fire restoration firms in the southeast with many employees, a fleet of trucks, state of the art inspection tools and over 2000 pieces of drying and restoration equipment. Al and DiasterCare® have traveled the nation in times of major disasters, including Iowa, Florida, Texas, Washington, and many places in between.
