Wolf Disaster Services, a Long Island-based provider of disaster recovery services such as water damage repair, fire damage and mold remediation to residential clients throughout Long Island, Brooklyn, Queens and metro-New York City areas, was recently featured in a June 25, 2014 story on the New York Daily News website regarding their work to aid a Queens homeowner in need.
