Winds reaching 115 miles swarmed the East Coast last weekend in what was known as Hurricane Irene. With much fortune, the damage was far less severe than what was initially expected.
With a storm this size, the flooding of homes and business is typically one of the lingering effects.
In combination with insurance companies, restoration companies play a significant role in restoring water-damaged contents.
Because ultrasonic technology is routinely used in the cleaning process, important household items such as keepsakes, computers and toys to name a few can now be completely restored.
In years past, an insurance company’s flood analysis would show that only 65-70% of damaged contents could be restored. These items would then be cashed out. However, when ultrasound is used, that same percentage increases to over 90%… saving both money and memories.
“Our goal as a restoration contractor is to return items back to homeowners, not have the replaced,” said Adam Weigand, owner of Paul Davis Restoration of Columbus, OH. “Omegasonics has given us the ability to accomplish this at a very high rate of success, which not only validates our participation in the restoration process, but also leaves the homeowner blown away with what we can save for them.”
Ultrasound utilizes environmentally safe cleaning soaps, heat, water, and sound waves. Restoration professionals across the country have found ultrasonic cleaning technology to be more cost effective and less labor intrusive. Most importantly… it does a better job of cleaning.
