Before ultrasonic cleaning technology came along, if your property was damaged in a fire or flood, most everything had to be thrown out and new items purchased.

It was painful enough just replacing those things you could go out and buy, like appliances, dishes, computers, electronics, clothing, and other common household items.

But what about those irreplaceable items, like family heirlooms and your children’s favorite stuffed animals? Those items can’t be replaced. Ever.

Now, however, thanks to recent advancements in ultrasonic cleaning systems, many of those items you once would have thrown into the trash can be salvaged, and at a fraction of the cost of buying new.

After a fire, your belongings will be oxidized, overheated, covered with soot, and waterlogged from attempts to put the fire out. Today, restoration companies that specialize in fire damage can now eliminate the soot and smell from most of those items and return them to their original condition, thanks to ultrasonic cleaning systems and technology.

Those items that are too large or require special cleaning—like large appliances and computers—can be cleaned as well. And yes, they can salvage your precious family heirlooms as well.

The same is true if your home or business is subjected to water damage from a flood. After a the waters subside, your property be covered in mud and smell like dead fish; left alone, bacteria and mold will begin to grow on those items, making them a health risk as well.

Having a mobile restoration company come in and begin ultrasonic cleaning means most of those items can be saved, and they will not be a health risk now or in the future. They will be restored to pre-flood condition, with all the mud and smell cleaned away.

Restoration companies charge only a fraction of what it would cost if you had to buy all of those items again, and they do it using safe, gentle, environmentally responsible ultrasonic cleaning systems that won’t damage even the most delicate and fragile of your items. Mobile units can be used to clean and return your smaller items to you right away.

For larger items, they have central facilities set up that are equipped to handle the size and weight, and still do a thorough cleaning job. You may be surprised to learn that small appliances, large kitchen appliances, radios and other electronics, computers, dishes, kitchenware, drapes, clothes, toys, and even mini-blinds can be cleaned and returned using ultrasonic cleaning technology.

Being the victim of a fire or flood is painful enough for you and your family without the added misery of shopping for a whole household’s worth of belongings, or throwing away Aunt Erma’s favorite carnival glass fruit bowl because it’s covered in soot and too delicate to scrub clean. Fire damage and water damage can now be effectively removed with ultrasonic cleaning techniques. Thanks to this technology, a tragedy, if it strikes, is at least a little less stressful on your family.
