For those of you that didn’t know already, Encompass actually runs two different businesses—Encompass Environmental and Encompass Contents. (You can find a link to the Encompass Contents website here.) Encompass Contents provides the Western Slope with an important service: contents cleaning. But oftentimes, people don’t know what exactly contents cleaning is. Explaining our industry so that everyone can understand it has always been one of our goals—in fact, it’s one of the reasons that we started this blog. That’s why we’ve given you information about things like our hoarding clean up services and meth decontamination in Grand Junction. Contents cleaning is an important service that can come into play in these kinds of clean up and many more. Contents cleaning and restoration is involved in everything from flood clean up to fire damage clean up, which is why it’s so important for us to talk about.
What is Contents Cleaning?
It’s important to define what we mean by contents before we talk about how we clean them. Generally, we classify objects into two categories; hard contents and soft contents. Soft contents are pretty much exactly what they sound like. They include things like clothing, fabrics, and upholstered items. Hard contents, on the other hand, include things like solid surfaces and wood. The distinction between these two kinds of contents is important because you have to clean them in different ways. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as taking all of your damaged contents and throwing them in a washing machine. Restoring your contents to the way they were before a disaster is a complex process that requires the best possible technologies. But now that we’ve talked a little bit about the difference between hard and soft contents, let’s discuss what contents cleaning is.
Contents cleaning is the process of removing stains and contamination from your hard and soft contents. After a fire, for example, your walls or furniture might be stained with smoke. We provide hard contents cleaning services to get rid of this kind of damage. If there’s a sewage leak and some of your clothes get contaminated with it, we provide soft contents cleaning to make sure that they get back to you as good as new. Disasters like fires often leave behind ugly reminders. These can include stains on your walls or horrible odors that refuse to go away. That’s why our contents cleaning process takes care of both. We don’t just focus on making sure everything looks good; it’s our goal to make sure everything gets back to normal. This means making sure your items have no trace of any odors, such as those of smoke, sewage, and more.
Our Contents Cleaning and Restoration Technologies
For soft contents, our Esporta wash system is the best way to remove stains and contamination. This wash system is the most effective and advanced soft contents cleaner available. Whether your clothes or other soft contents have been contaminated with mold, sewage, smoke, blood, or just about anything else, our Esporta wash system can handle it. Unlike many technologies that clean soft contents, the Esporta wash system can handle Category 2 and Category 3 water damage. This means that it can clean dangerous contaminants that other wash systems can’t. In fact, the Esporta wash system can a clean more than 90% of all damaged contents. Many other contents cleaning companies shy away from the worst contaminants or will send your soft contents somewhere else, but Encompass Contents has the technology to clean them in-house. We don’t send your contents anywhere else because we’re capable of cleaning them ourselves.
For hard contents, we use a Fireline ultrasonic cleaner. If, for example, you have important dishware that gets damaged in a fire or a favorite watch that gets contaminated with sewage, our Fireline ultrasonic cleaner can take care of the cleaning process. The ultrasonic cleaning process involves cleaning with water or solvents. The Fireline ultrasonic cleaner uses ultrasound to agitate these fluids, which then are able to better clean your contents than if you were to just scrub the surface with them. This process removes the toughest stains and contaminants from your hard contents. No matter how attached those contaminants are or how deeply they have penetrated into your items, the Fireline ultrasonic cleaner can remove them. By doing so, the Fireline ultrasonic cleaner ensures that there’s no trace of the contaminants left on your hard contents.
Cleaning electronics is a bit more difficult than cleaning normal hard contents. If you want to save data and make sure that electronics still work after you clean them, you have to be much more careful. Thankfully, Encompass Contents has access to the Fireline ionizer. This technology makes it possible for us to safely and effectively clean electronics without losing your data. Sewage leaks, fires, and other disasters don’t only affect homes, after all. Businesses can stand to lose a lot of important information if a disaster harms their computers and other electronics. This is one of the reasons that having access to cleaners like the Fireline ionizer is so incredibly important for contents cleaning and restoration companies. For more information about our Fireline cleaning technologies, be sure to check out their website here.
