About DKI

In 1974, a small group of restoration contractors joined together to form Disaster Kleenup International (DKI) as a collaborative business and personal network. Twenty years later the company became a franchise. Services provided by franchisees include emergency response, water damage mitigation, fire and contents cleaning, mold remediation and reconstruction.
