About Contents Restoration
Contents Restoration is an important business. It not only helps to restore damaged property, but it also helps restore people’s lives and livelihoods. While property damage can take many forms, what’s important to the owners is that their lives are returned to normal, and that they get their property back, as fast as possible.
Of course, when property can be returned depends on the type and severity of the damage. Not every item, such as those actually burnt or melted in fires, can be restored, but a great number of items that would have typically been determined to be unsalvageable, can now be quickly restored and returned to the owner with SERVPRO of Upper Darby’s Ultrasonic Cleaning Services.
About Ultrasonic Cleaning
Ultrasonic cleaning is the most efficient and effective way of cleaning contents. The secret is cavitation, which means millions of microscopic bubbles are repeatedly formed and immediately collapse. This action causes the bubbles to penetrate into every niche and crevice. There are no scrubbing or abrasive chemicals!! The process involves submerging the items into a pre-wash station, then into the wash station, then it moves to the third machine you see pictured above where it is rinsed.
SERVPRO of Upper Darby specializes in restoring contents damaged by mold, water, or fire. Our expertise and “restore” versus “replace” mentality can help you save money while preserving precious belongings that cannot be replaced. We also pretest your contents to determine what items are able to be restored back to their preloss condition before the damage.
SERVPRO Upper Darby utilizes several methods of cleaning your contents, including:
- Wet Cleaning - An effective cleaning method for removing moderate to heavy residues.
- Dry Cleaning - Used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean prior to wet cleaning.
- Foam Cleaning - Used for upholstery fabrics that might shrink or bleed if wet cleaned.
- Spray and Wipe -Effective for items that can’t withstand wet cleaning.
- Immersion Cleaning - Contents are dipped into a bath of the cleaning product.
- Abrasive Cleaning - Involves agitation of the surface being cleaned.
Types of Contents Restoration
The damage that occurs to property during fires, floods, and other disasters is often much more severe than it first appears. Fire is destructive and an item that is physically burned or melted cannot be restored. However, property that has been engulfed in smoke, covered in soot, stained or discolored by water or contaminated by chemicals or molds can usually be restored to functional (or even good-as-new) condition with SERVPRO of Upper Darby’s Ultrasonic Cleaning Services.
Benefits of Ultrasonic Cleaning for Contents Restoration
The benefits of restoring property with SERVPRO of Upper Darby’s Ultrasonic Cleaning Services:
- For Insurance Companies: The cost of restoring an item versus reimbursing the owner for the item’s full value is dramatically diminished.
- For Property Owners: Property is restored and returned quickly, whereas traditional cleaning methods can take weeks and cause additional property damage. Most people are happy simply getting their property back, especially if it means getting their lives back to normal as quickly as possible and even more so if the items have sentimental value.
How Common Damage Occurs
Damage to property and personal possessions can occur in many different ways. While damage as described above is common, fires are particularly troublesome as they can often result in multiple forms of damage. For example:
During a Fire:
Fires can produce vast amounts of smoke that leave soot deposits on property. Depending on what has burned and the temperature of the fire, the soot produced by the fire may not only be mixed with a variety of chemicals and toxins. Additionally, physical properties of the soot can range from a fine powder to a thick sludge. Furthermore, because the particulate matter that makes up soot (and the chemical residue) is microscopic, it can not only penetrate deep into tiny crevices on the surface of an item, but it can also “sink” deep into the item itself. This is especially true of electronics which can actually attract soot and dirt because they can generate magnetic fields or become charged with static electricity.
Directly After a Fire Loss:
The water that was used to extinguish the flames can discolor the surfaces of many types of items. Additionally, water can cause severe physical damage since the materials from which many items are made can actually absorb surprising amounts of water.
Well After a Fire Loss:
Many types of materials and even the items themselves can retain significant levels of moisture. Moisture absorbed by an item that has not been properly dried, or that remains on or near the surface, may quickly become a breeding ground for molds and bacteria or other potentially hazardous residues.
