There are many popular and effective methods to cleaning personal contents, the contents that advance restoration specialize in cleaning include by are not limited to, furniture soft and hard, clothing/all textiles, electronics, dinnerware, books, and photographs. Advance Restoration takes great care to clean items by recommended cleaning methods to ensure items are returned to their pre-loss condition.

Some of those methods our technicians are trained in using include the use of, dry sponges/chem. sponges which can be used for cleaning books and other paper products or important documents. Wood soap and polish is used on wood furniture. Upholstered furniture is cleaned using either a dry clean method or steam cleaning method depending on fabric specifications. During our cleaning process we use a Hydroxyl Generator system in our cleaning room to assure all odors and the particles/compounds that make these odors are neutralized. Once the cleaning process is complete, contents and or structures can sometimes require further treatment for odors where the use of the Hydroxyl Generator or an ozone treatment may be necessary for additional deodorization.

Ozone deodorization is extremely effective for more serious odors. This is the primary method for clothing, upholstered items, papers, books or any other porous material affected by an odor. The machine takes oxygen out of the air (O2), charges it electrically and turns it into Ozone (O3). Ozone is highly reactive and combines with malodor molecules to chemically alter their structure and rid the property of odor.

Because ozone has the ability to penetrate into fabrics and surfaces to the same extent that the odor did, it is the most effective means of long-range deodorization and it is permanent. There is no residual odor from the process itself and no damage to the property. Ozone also kills bacteria and fungi and works as a sanitizing agent. It is a permanent method – once the item is deodorized, the odor cannot and will not return.
