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.

Hardwood Floors are both appealing and durable. They add that nice rustic and earthy touch to our homes. Although they can withstand a lot of wear and tear in their lifetime, hardwood floors often need care and upkeep to last. With the right products and regular upkeep, keeping your hardwood floors in pristine condition is no big deal.
Your biggest enemy when it comes to hardwood floors is water. Those wooden panels nailed to floor – believe it or not – are chunks of trees, cut to size and dried. When water begins to make it’s way into your hardwood floors, those wooden fibers begin to expand, eventually warping your wooden floor. Once this happens there’s really no going back, and you’re looking at an expensive and time-consuming floor replacement.
Wooden floors are sensitive, so it’s important to be cautious of any kind of moisture – from simple spills, abundant humidity, and water seepage from under the floor. In it’s most rudimentary form, water damage is simply the appearance of stains. There are a couple of home remedies to remove these stains. Using toothpaste or a combination of oil and cigarette ash will buff these white stains away. For a more severe stain, you may have to remove the finish on your floor.
In order to prevent small amounts of damage, be sure to coat your floors in a water-resistant finish before installing them. This will help prevent water from soaking in to the grains. You can also wax with a waterproof seal to shore up your defenses. In order to keep your floors in good shape, its ideal to re-apply water-resistant stain every 12-18 months.
If your wooden floors are suffering from major water damage, many professional cleaning services such as Service Master Solutions offer special drying services that can greatly reduce water damage to floors.

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)!
