Our Latest Projects
Marinette School District – Marinette, WI

Project Name: Marinette School District
Location: Marinette, WI
Square Footage: 30,000
Type of Project: Fire/Smoke Damage


Perfection Cleaning & Restoration recently completed fire damage restoration and smoke damage cleaning at Menekaunee Elementary School. As part of the greater Marinette School District in Marinette, WI, we understood the urgency from district officials to have our trained professionals on-site right away to begin extensive cleaning and restoration. Time was of the essence when working at the 30,000 square foot elementary school to prevent further damage to structural materials and school contents.

Our crews arrived in February and got to work right away. The project manager divided the school’s blueprint into several zones before work began, so crews could focus on specific areas in an organized, efficient manner. This also ensured that the project was kept on track and finished within 10 days. Professional, detailed structure cleaning and repairs preceded necessary duct cleaning throughout the entire school as the smoke damage was extensive in all areas of the building.

Additionally, Perfection cleaned all contents damaged in both the classrooms and the storage areas located throughout the elementary school. Several air scrubbers as well as our commercial duct cleaning equipment assisted our crews throughout all aspects of the job for a streamlined, stress-free experience from start to finish. Marinette School District officials were so thrilled with our prompt response time and professional service that they had the following to say after the job was completed:

“We are extremely happy with the quality of work and timeframe of this project. You are truly a very professional company to do business with.”

Water Damage Restoration Crews In New Jersey!

Perfection Cleaning & Restoration’s Mobile Catastrophe Unit has responded to the East Coast!

After witnessing the devastation that Hurricane Sandy caused along the New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Delaware seasides, we realized that we needed to act rapidly to ensure we could help property owners with extensive damage. Our team was ready to respond at a moment’s notice and we quickly sent several capable, experienced crews in professionally equipped water damage cleanup vehicles. Our water damage company arrived in New Jersey overnight and has since been working around the clock, performing advanced water damage and restoration services for affected residential and commercial customers. We have been helping property owners affected by the New Jersey storm with all water damage cleanup and water damage restoration needs since arriving on-site and will not leave until the job is finished.

If water damage cleaning isn’t completed promptly and by a professional, experienced company, property owners run the risk of significant damage after time. Our crews also perform New Jersey mold remediation services in addition to our expert water damage and restoration.
