An assembly-line ultrasonic contents restoration processing system allows a staff of 3-4 technicians to increase production by 500%. Disaster restoration companies usually clean fire, smoke, and water damaged contents manually. The ultrasonic process does a more thorough job of cleaning. Contents restoration companies recover more contents for homeowners. Insurance companies save millions of dollars in total loss claims. Restoration companies are more profitable due to increased efficiency.

If you are a contents restoration company not yet using the latest technology in ultrasonic cleaning, then you are potentially missing on countless amounts of clients, jobs and money.
With today’s technology, using an ultrasonic cleaning machine is the ONLY way to reduce cleaning costs, improve cleaning time/effectiveness and reduce the number of cash outs on highly damaged items.
After a disaster has struck, such as a residential home fire, the insurance company and homeowner work together to find a suitable restoration company. Insurance professionals are now only choosing restoration companies that use modern ultrasonic equipment because of their ability to quickly clean fire damaged contents and restore them to pre-loss condition.
Some of these items may be impossible to restore by hand. Cleaning a box of contents by hand would normally take about hour for an experienced contents cleaner. Inside a typical box, you may find everyday items such as statues, fine china, a T.V. remote, etc… The cleaning technician would use specialized brushes and sponges to reach every crack in and around the item. This process is often long, tedious, and expensive.
In one hour, a team of workers single worker can clean an average of 10-12 of these boxes using ultrasonic equipment. Ultrasound reaches those hard to get nooks and crannies in a fraction of the time, allowing a worker to use their time more effectively on other projects. Because of the extreme difference in cleaning time, insurance companies now pay a lot less to restore a home filled with damaged items. If you are a restoration company not using the latest in ultrasonic technology, you simply cannot afford to stay in the dark ages of inefficiency and hand cleaning.

When State Restoration called to ask if they could try out a Restoration Pro by Omegasonics® to see how it would handle a contents job, we said, “Sure, send us your crew and we will set them up.”
So Eileen Zark brought over her crew and five palates from a job she was already doing. We gave them about 30 minutes of training, then we stood back to watch the fun…
The contents pros did just what we showed them and they cut through the job like a hot knife through butter. “Amazing…” she said. The workers were having a blast and she confided that she had been doing contents work for about 8 years — the last 4 of which were really wearing her down…but this was totally different! Hey — who wouldn’t be bummed out by cleaning things with Q-tips, toothbrushes and rags?
So how did Eileen and her crew do?
Well, they used to clean about a box per person, per hour. Xactimate pays around $30 to $40 per box. And we asked, “Eileen, about how many boxes did you get done in an hour with Omegasonics Restoration Pro®?”
She said, “About 20 to 25 boxes…,” Depending on where you are in the country, and judging by the Xactimate numbers, you already know that makes it as much as $1000 in just one hour! Imagine what she could do in a day (actually she did all five palates in just 2 days)!
Some of the benefits of ultrasonic cleaning include being SAFE for the environment, SIMPLE to use, and SAVES on money, time, and labor.
Even though ultrasonic cleaning is widely used in the restoration industry, many restoration professionals are not fully aware of how to maximize the unique advantages of an ultrasonic cleaner’s wide range of power and effectiveness. One area in which ultrasound is a must is when the job calls for mold remediation.
There have been many medical studies proving that health problems can occur if individuals are exposed to even the smallest amount of mold. In fact, 35% of adult asthma is due to mold in the home or workplace. When a house has been damaged by water, using ultrasound to restore contents can greatly reduce the per-component cost of cleaning. The damage may develop at an extremely slow pace and even minor water spots can eventually mar a surface. However, with water damage in extreme cases such as flooding, devastating results can develop very quickly. This type of damage is a huge contributor to property loss no matter the speed progression of the damage.
Restoration professionals must act quickly when water disaster strikes because it has been proven that mold can grow within 24 hours after water damage has occurred.
Restoration specialists, such as UltraCare Restoration located in Simi Valley, CA., recommend responding quickly to chronic moisture problems because water damage can accelerate the growth of mold. To get this moisture under control, they recommend using powerful dehumidification and ventilation machines. These types of units can even be bought at stores such as The Do It Center or Costco.
If your home or work place has been water damaged and you fear mold will result, please contact your restoration specialist immediately for a complete safety audit. We have a comprehensive list of world class contents processing companies for your convenience at Omegasonics.com/CertifiedContentsProfessionals. Insurance adjusters throughout the U.S., Canada and Australia have sought them out because they are your first line of defense against costly “cash outs” and “total losses.”
Going green is good… but not when it comes to mold!
