NEW YORK, NY — When disaster strikes, it's the police, paramedics, firefighters and other first responders that save the day, but the unsung heroes of every catastrophe are the guys who clean it up. HGTV provides a behind-the-scenes look of the recovery efforts of unpredictable storms and other natural disasters with its new series, "Catastrophe Inc.," premiering Sunday, July 14 at 10 a.m. ET. Long after the floods have receded and fires have been extinguished, the "Catastrophe Inc." crew works relentlessly in the muck and grime to change people's lives by restoring their homes. HGTV's half-hour documentary style series features the masters of disaster clean up: licensed recovery contractors Ed Ranieri and Enzo Maddalena, designer Kari Openshaw and Joe Charboneau, former Cleveland Indians player and all around construction worker.

In the premiere episode, "Fallen Tree Fiasco," newlyweds and first time home buyers Adam and Malissa, experience a major storm — called a derecho — causing a huge tree to fall in their backyard, destroying everything in its path. Mere months after settling into their new home, the Catastrophe Inc. team comes to the rescue to remove the tree, install a better drainage system to prevent future trees from falling and transform the backyard into a patio paradise complete with a perfect grill for entertaining guests.

Following the July 14 premiere, new episodes of "Catastrophe Inc." air every Sunday on HGTV at 10 a.m. ET.
