Advanced Disaster Recovery, Inc. Acquires Fairfield, N.J.’s AstroCare To Expand Disaster Recovery Services

Advanced Disaster Recovery, Inc. announced has acquired AstroCare Fire and Water Restoration, a Fairfield, N.J., firm with more than 65 years of  experience assisting families and businesses in rebounding from catastrophes. 

AstroCare joins Advanced DRI and A. Molly Restoration in the Advanced Disaster Recovery, Inc. family of businesses. Combined, the companies possess more than a century of experience in emergency  services, including restoration and recovery from disasters such as fire and flooding. The addition of AstroCare’s staff, advanced equipment and expertise enables Advanced Disaster Recovery, Inc. to  increase the capacity to respond when the owner of a damaged home or business calls in distress. 

“The flexibility that comes with the greater pool of experts in a variety of areas means we can provide  services more smoothly and, ultimately, return customers to their homes and businesses in the shortest  time possible,” said Advanced Disaster Recovery, Inc. CEO Greg Boatwright. “At the same time, they  can rest assured that the restoration has been carried out to the highest standards and that the house or  office will be returned to a safe, clean and excellent condition.” 

The addition of AstroCare’s staff and resources also brings on board a contents cleaning division, with  experts who pack and remove belongings from a damaged structure and take them to a warehouse where  the staff cleans them, removes odors and stores them until the home or office is ready for them to be  returned.  

AstroCare owners Wendy Grisee Demboski and Sally Grisee-Dixon will continue to be active in the new  combined company.

“We are well aware of Advanced Disaster Recovery, Inc.’s stellar reputation, and we know that the  combined forces will continue to serve loyal AstroCare customers with the same expertise, knowledge  and dedication that have gained their confidence over the last several decades,” said Wendy Grisee  Demboski. 

Founded in 1955, AstroCare has built a solid reputation in the restoration and cleaning industry. The  company provides a variety of services, including pack-out and storage of belongings, smoke and odor  removal, water extraction, drying, mold remediation, painting, decoration and building repairs. The firm  has restored homes and businesses damaged by fire, soot, water damage, and even plane crashes. The company earned “Top Performers Awards” for the New Jersey area for five consecutive years – from  2016 through 2020 – by Contractor Connection, a third-party administrator service that helps clients  locate firms that can help them. They have also won multiple “Service Excellence Awards” in the  industry. 

Advanced DRI has delivered exceptional emergency and disaster-recovery services for more than 40  years. In December 2020, the firm merged with A. Molly Company, which had been bringing  environmental damage relief and home restoration to northern New Jersey for two decades.  

The firms combined under the Advanced Disaster Recovery, Inc. name and now serve a region including  the New York, New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. Its experts provide emergency recovery services for  wind, fire, smoke and water damage; catastrophe response; contents restoration; environmental issues;  mold remediation; healthcare and environmental services; flooding repair; and construction services. 

“With AstroCare’s staff, resources and expertise joining the Advanced Disaster Recovery family, we will  continue to serve customers who have come to trust both companies for effective, high-quality  workmanship and excellent customer service,” said Advanced Disaster Recovery, Inc. Vice President of  Business Development Angelo Ferrante. “We know that clients contact us at some of the most stressful  times in their lives, and our friendly, helpful staff and highly skilled experts get the process moving  immediately to help them return to them to their normal lives as swiftly as possible.”
