After starting in St. Louis, Missouri in 1981 as a catastrophe cleaning and restoration company, CATCO quickly became a regional all-star, mastering restoration services related to water, smoke, and fire. With a certified team of professionals, CATCO tackled everything from smaller jobs like, duct cleaning or refurbishment of personal property, like musical instruments and electronic equipment to large scale restoration projects involving infrastructures like roads, building foundations, and bridges. CATCO’s goal was always to put its clients lives back together in the wake of disaster.
