No one really wants to think about having to deal with the aftermath of a fire or flood, but the ugly truth is that these potentially catastrophic events happen somewhere on a daily basis, turning lives upside down in the process.

Whether it happens to our homes or our businesses, the results can be devastating. Imagine the gut-wrenching feeling of seeing our great-grandma’s favorite Italian  vase covered in soot, expensive stereos and computers filled with river mud, or our children’s favorite stuffed animals smelling of smoke.

In the past, what could be salvaged had to be hand-cleaned; this process was slow, expensive, and only partially effective, often doing more harm than good on delicate items. Today, though, restoration companies are using ultrasonic cleaners to return items to pre-loss condition at a fraction of the cost and time.

Almost anything damaged by floodwaters, mud, soot, excessive heat, carbon deposits, oxidation, or smoke can be salvaged using ultra sonic cleaners. The technology lets us recover items that we used to just throw away, saving a tremendous amount of money over replacement costs. Restoration companies equipped with ultra sonic cleaning stations can restore everything from large appliances, computers, stereos, electronic equipment, electric motors, and televisions, to delicate hand-painted plates and vases, plastic, brass, crystal, and china.

Because ultrasonic cleaners use high-frequency sound waves to clean and restore items, trained professionals won’t damage even the most delicate surfaces, making them ideal for restoring nearly anything. And because the sound waves can get into cracks and crevices that can’t be reached by hand or other cleaning processes, not only can you get the small soot and dirt particles out, but also the molds and bacteria found in floodwaters. Our eating utensils are safe to use again, and toys are safe for the kids.

Fires and floods are tough enough on us as it is without the added stress of trying to figure out where we’re going to come up with the money to replace all those things insurance won’t cover, or deal with the loss of irreplaceable family heirlooms or business data stuck on a computer hard drive. But with the help of a restoration company using ultra sonic cleaners, you can save much of what was damaged, and begin putting your life back together knowing your precious memories and valuable business data aren’t lost forever.
