Ultrasonic Contents Restoration for Your Personal Belongings
Contents cleaning and restoration is as important to our customers as our other emergency restoration services, if not more, and we’re proud that our content restoration services are just as important to us, too. While we’re working hard to restore your damaged property from a disaster (large or small), we’re able to clean your personal property at our secure, full-service facility dedicated to restoring and preserving your most treasured possessions.
In fire damage situations, personal belongings are significantly at risk beyond the initial damage. Ash and soot will quickly discolor and tarnish appliances and personal property. Water and moisture damage will erode electronics. Wood materials can quickly warp. Clothing? Blankets? Family Heirlooms? The rather large amount of damage that can occur after a disaster is significant. This is why contents cleaning is so important.

What is Ultrasonic Contents Cleaning?
Ultrasonic cleaning is an amazing technology that uses ultrasound to remove contamination from your personal property. The technology uses (in our case) a combination of non-toxic, biodegradable soaps and sound waves (20–400 kHz) to clean a vast selection of products—everything from musical instruments and jewelry to golf clubs and firearms. Ultrasonic cleaning is so powerful because it uses the sound waves to agitate contamination and particles with high pressure, and it works on metals, plastics, glass, ceramics, rubber, and other materials. The cleaning process reaches each little gap in your property and removes various contaminants, from mold and biological impurities, to dust, dirt, oil, soot, wax, and more. With this technology, your personal property doesn’t need to be disassembled prior to cleaning—the ultrasonic sound waves and the cleaners will reach into the smallest of cracks.
You can find this technology in use at dental and medical offices, car detailing shops, and even in homes. Duckstein Restoration uses the industry-leading solution to deliver the highest-quality contents restoration possible.
