The state of Georgia is known for very active weather patterns where clouds stack up and appear out of nowhere. Vicious electrical storms light up the Georgia sky.
The lightning strikes are random and ruthless when they hit the roof of a home or industrial building. Fires break out causing both smoke and water damage. Since 1996, Paul Davis Restoration South Atlanta has helped Georgians put their lives back together when disaster hits.
For years, Paul Davis Restoration used the industry standard for restoring damaged contents—cleaning each piece manually by hand, one piece at a time. As VP of Sales Doug Blount explained, “We did everything the old way”. PDR employed up to six people to slowly and methodically clean boxes of contents using an array of Q-tips, rags, brushes and picks. It was not uncommon to take up to 1½ hours to clean a single box of contents. Many intricate items could not be restored at all and were claimed as total losses by the insurance company.
Owner Allen McHenry decided to have an outside company take a look at their cleaning process design. After this task was completed by Total Contentz, the PDR management team set out to investigate which restoration equipment they would purchase. After researching several vendors, PDR of South Atlanta chose the Omegasonics Restoration Pro® System. Doug said, “The equipment seemed more industrial and the value was exceptional. The decision was really a no-brainer”.
On PDR’s first project armed with the Restoration Pro® System, Doug and his team were able to save an insurance adjuster $35,000 on an assortment of delicate, extremely intricate figurines and Hummels that were to be total lossed. Doug estimates, “It would have taken a month and a half to clean those boxes with the old method, if we could have cleaned them at all! With our new equipment, we did the job in under one week. We have easily increased what we can salvage and have become a lot more profitable.”
The benefits of the Restoration Pro® System go even further than just the bottom line increase in profits. Says Doug, “Our contents division is growing because we now have a more defined way to market our services. What I would tell anyone in the restoration business is that the (Omegasonics) equipment saves money, cleans better and faster, and is a heck of a marketing tool! I don‘t know how we survived without it. We are tickled. The equipment is just awesome. We absolutely love it!”
