The Contents Cleaning Process

Once it’s time for your things to get cleaned, we open the boxes one by and our cleaning professionals go item by item and decide the best method for cleaning it. The method chosen is based on several factors: are they hard or soft contents? Do they need to be washed by hand or is machine wash okay? What sort of cleaning chemicals can be used on this type of material?

Many times, hard contents like dishes will be cleaned in automated machines, such as ultrasonics and deodorized for smoke odor. Any hard contents that cannot be cleaned in a machine will be hand cleaned with an environmentally-friendly degreaser and odor counteractants.

Soft contents will be cleaned in our Esporta Machine, which has been proven to restore 85% of all soft contents, including badly damaged dry clean only fabrics. This technology has enabled us to salvage items that were previously considered unsalvageable.

Once everything has been cleaned, your contents are put in our Ozone Room for deodorization. In some cases, they undergo thermal fogging. This is a process that replicates the particle size of smoke and is an additional counteractant for the elimination of any odors. After this, contents that are unable to be machine dried are added to our drying chamber. Throughout the entire process, your items are being tracked start to finish.

At this point, the contents are placed in a fresh clean box with lots of protection to go to a climate controlled storage until you and your family are ready to bring everything back for move in again.
