Nothing can be more devastating than a fire. That is why the service that companies such as Paul Davis Restoration provide their community is so essential. Fire restoration can help a family who has suffered a fire in their home recover precious items and keepsakes that would otherwise have been thrown away due to fire damage.
Paul Davis Restoration and South Atlanta
Paul Davis Restoration was purchased by Allan McHenry in 1996. Once the purchase was complete, Allen put together a team of industry experts to help him run the disaster restoration company. One of the key players was Doug Blount, VP of Sales. Doug had extensive experience in the restoration industry, working for his father as an estimator from the young age of 13.
Cleaning Up After a Fire
Items that have been in a fire can have varying degrees of damage. Most items that make it out will be covered in soot or ash. Smoke can also leave very difficult stains to remove. Any item that has been in a fire will carry with it the smell of smoke. All of these things make fire restoration very difficult.
Paul Davis employed a team of six people to do clean up. This process involved methodical scrubbing using cotton swabs, rags, brushes and picks. The process was slow and labor intensive, allowing only one box to be cleaned in an hour and a half. Sometimes items were very badly damaged and could not be restored by hand at all. Doug knew there had to be a better way.
After doing some research, Doug came across the Omegasonics Restoration Pro® System. The Restoration Pro® System consists of four stations for cleaning:
- 5200 Pre-Wash station for removal of heavy soot
- 5224 Ultrasonic Wash for detailed removal of soot, corrosion or other contamination
- Rinse-Detail station for removing soap residue
- 6900 Tunnel Dryer gets the contents dried in eight minutes or less.
Since moving to Omegasonics Paul Davis is saving money both for himself and for insurance companies. They were able to recover an assortment of delicate figurines that were believed to be a total loss. They have also reduced their hand cleaning by 70 percent and reduced cash-outs to their clients by over 50 percent.
Once again, Omegasonics proves that the cost effective and efficient way to get even your seemingly hopeless possessions clean is with ultrasonic technology.
