Maybe it was a hurricane or a tornado. Maybe it was a lightning strike or an electrical fire. Or maybe it was a flood of river water. If your home went through a disaster, many important belongings and documents can be severely damaged. With professional contents cleaning technology, All About Contents is often able to salvage many of your belongings and restore them for future use.
Content restoration can apply to a whole range of different items that may become damaged after a disaster such as a storm, flood or fire. Content restoration services are just as important as reconstruction in the rebuilding phase, because they include everything housed within the four walls of a property– you know, your STUFF?!?
Like the personal property restoration process, the contents restoration process comprises several steps. After securing the building or structure, the next step is to pack and move the contents of the building to a new location for restoration and storage. At this point, the restoration contractor will create an inventory list of the items that have been packed up and moved off-site. Industry leading software will create a usable and manageable list of all your items
Before it’s time for your things to get cleaned, the next stage in the contents restoration process is organizing and making decisions. All About Contents will open the boxes one by one and our cleaning professionals go item by item and decide the best method for cleaning it (porous, fragile, metal, etc..) The goal of cleaning is to remove any signs of smoke or water damage from your possessions, with no unpleasant or lingering odors from items.
Many times, hard contents like dishes will be cleaned in automated machines, such as ultrasonic and deodorized for smoke odor. Any hard contents that cannot be cleaned in a machine will be hand cleaned with an environmentally-friendly degreaser and odor counteractants. Soft contents will be cleaned in with technology that has enabled us to salvage items that were previously considered unsalvageable and has greatly enhanced our capability to restore your life back to normal.
Once everything has been cleaned, your contents are put in an ozone room for deodorization. In some cases, they undergo thermal fogging. This is a process that replicates the particle size of smoke and is an additional counteractant for the elimination of any residual odors. After this, contents that are unable to be machine dried are added to our drying chamber with air circulation. Throughout the entire process, your items are being tracked start to finish.
At this point, the contents are placed in a fresh clean box with lots of protection to go to a climate controlled storage until you and your family are ready to bring everything back to move in again.
Recovering from a disaster is about much more than just the external parts of a building or property. Items from inside the building form the basis of lives, meaning it’s just as important to ensure that they’re restored to their condition before the disaster.
