If a tragedy such as a fire or flood were to strike your home, your priceless possessions would more than likely suffer serious damage. One area of our business that we focus on is contents restoration.
This means that if your possessions are in need of repair or professional cleaning after a flood, fire, or other disaster, we can help.
Tracy Bachtell, Senior VP of Business Development, recently wrote an article in Claims Magazine about soft contents restoration and how through the years, technology has dramatically improved this area of restoration services.
Specifically, the Esporta wash system is one advancement that has changed the way—and set new, higher standards—when it comes to soft contents restoration. The Esporta precisely controls time, temperature, cleaning agents, and hydraulic action by incorporating computer-controlled, pre-programmed wash recipes and environmentally friendly cleaning agents.
According to Bachtell: “The results suggested that the technology removes as much as 99 percent of organic contaminants and is capable of cleaning previously thought impossible in the restoration of soft contents. Restoration professionals must now provide evidence of the capability to clean and disinfect at the microscopic level. Third-party independent lab testing can be used to explore the capabilities of limitations of cleaning technology. In addition, Esporta operators use the ATP field testing device to examine individual articles within soft contents claims before and after treatment to verify microscopic decontamination. Restored soft goods need to stand up to the three tests of clean: if it looks clean; if it smells clean; and if it is clean at the microscopic level.”
The system has more than 20 pre-programmed cleaning protocols that can be specified on a touch screen. This lets the operator design a specific combination capable of cleaning smoke, soot, sewage, and other harmful substances. Some of the different items that can be cleaned include leather shoes and purses, luggage, seat cushions, toys, sports equipment, and more.
