Right now there are several fires raging across California. As we write this, the BART public transport system has been shut down in the Oakland area of San Francisco. There are people’s houses being burnt to the ground as we speak and, as that happens, all of their important documents are being destroyed. Those documents would have helped them to gain everything they deserve when they file an insurance claim. [Read more…]
One of the worst parts of having your home flooded or damaged by fire is losing the precious contents of the home. How do you explain to a child that their favorite stuffed animal is unable to be cleaned? What about that dress you had bought to wear at your daughter’s wedding?
Although the new technology isn’t a magic cure-all for damaged “soft contents”—which means clothing, linens, or other items that include textiles—many items can now be cleaned and restored back to pre-loss condition.
Which is amazing. Most people see their items damaged by soot, smoke, fire and other contaminants and assume all is lost. But an interesting perspective is provided in the September 2011 issue of Claims magazine, in an article authored by Tracy Bachtell, EVP of Business Development for Paul Davis Restoration, Inc., our parent company.
In the article, Bachtell says that “the Esporta wash system is one such example of technology that is, by some measures, radically changing the rules of the soft contents restoration game.” It could be one of the technological advancements in recent years that are enabling insurers to improve their standards to adapt to the increasingly higher expectations of their customers.
There’s a lot of technical information in the article, which you can read if you click here, that most home or business owners don’t need to know. All that they have to know is that we use this new technology to clean and restore your damaged goods.
And before you think that this new Esporta system is using harsh cleaners that will harm you, your family or the environment, don’t worry. The system uses patented, environmentally safe cleaning agents and hydraulic cleaning action to clean most soft contents.
So what does this mean for you, our customer? It means that we can restore 85 percent of your contents that are usually deemed irreparable and to be thrown away, and reduce the claim to your insurance company.
