Our Process

When we receive the call to respond to a disaster we can be on-site within three hours of the call. Here we are able to meet with the insured, adjusters and restoration company. We provide a room-by-room pack out of the entire house. From there, we take the contents back to our facility to begin the bar code inventory and process any emergency clothes that the insured may need. After inventory is completed, we begin to ozone, wet clean, and dry clean the textiles as appropriate. Once everything is odor-free, we then begin the pressing, folding, and hanging of garments. Garments are inspected and then scanned by their bar codes to fulfill their orders. The restored items that are returned to hangers are protected by

eco-friendly and biodegradable poly and stored in our temperature controlled vault until it is time to return them to the insured. Our inventory process gives us a piece by piece break down, ticket break down, tracking abilities, billing and much more. We are always available to the insured may they need any of their items before they return home.


Smoke odor removal is the biggest challenge when restoring textiles to usable condition. We are able to do so with our ozone chamber. We also use special detergents to help this process along. Ozone is a naturally occurring substance found in nature that we cannot live without. Ozone is an activated form of Oxygen with three atoms where the regular oxygen has two. Ozone in our upper atmosphere filters out harmful rays from the sun. Ozone is also produced by lightening during thunderstorms. You probably have experience this as freshness in the air after a storm.

Ozone is very unstable and has an average half-life of 20 minutes. This is why ozone must be produced at the point of use and cannot be stored in a container for later use. Ozone will cast off its third atom to any organic element, thereby oxidizing it or converting it to another substance. In case of odors, it will convert a foul-smelling substance into a non-odorous substance, naturally. Ozone will also destroy molds, bacteria, fungus, mildew and virus.
