Getting Back to Normal: Content Recovery and Restoration

For many, our most valued possessions are priceless and irreplaceable. Allen Keith Construction understands the importance of content recovery and salvaging as much as possible when it comes to property contents. When valuable contents are damaged, we can often restore them to their original state.

Our team will ensure your items are cleaned and restored to the best of our ability. They will be stored in our clean temperature-controlled storage facility until you are ready for them.

Electronics and Digital Media Content Recovery

Fire and smoke as well as moisture can corrode the interior of your electronics. Because electronic equipment cleaning is a highly specialized field that necessitates the use of a controlled environment, electronics that have been damaged are not necessarily a lost cause. We are often able to recover far more than you expect. Water-damaged electronics must be dried out, and, for best results, the content recovery process needs to begin as soon as possible.

Our employees are trained in damage repair and use of state-of-the-art equipment and techniques such as ultrasonic cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning agitates a solution with mechanical vibrations to aid in the removal of soil from surgical device surfaces and, in some cases, inside lumens. The sound waves in the liquid cause microscopic implosions of bubbles that collapse when they come into contact with surfaces, creating a vacuum-like scrubbing action that dislodges soil from surfaces; this effect is known as cavitation. The bioburden is then removed from the surface of the items submerged in the chamber by cavitation. Because the ultrasonic process is safe, gentle, detailed and fast, it remains a preferred method.

Allen Keith and CleanTech are dedicated to delivering exceptional cleaning and restoration services. Our technology, which uses specially designed processing equipment, cleaning agents, and processing strategies, enables the recovery of many items that other companies may consider unsalvageable.

Photographs and Other Valuables Content Recovery

Electronics are not the only irreplaceable items that we will help you save. Your documents and books are extremely vulnerable during a flood. These sentimental artifacts can be worth a lot of money, and we understand how important it is to keep them safe. We can be on the scene in minutes, providing the key extra seconds that are needed to help you preserve some of your most prized possessions during the content recovery process.

Examples of the types of items we recover:

  • Photographs and Negatives
  • Slides
  • Legal Documents
  • Books
  • Artwork
  • Blueprints
  • Maps
  • X-Rays
  • Audio and Video Tapes

It is critical to begin salvaging water-damaged photos, books and documents within two days, or they will begin to mold and deteriorate. Both the water and the resulting humidity in the air can cause long-term damage. The good news is that there is a way to save water damaged photos, papers and books, but you must act quickly and carefully.

Depending on the type of document, such as designs, high-ink documents, certificates and so on, using paper towels to soak up the water may actually damage it by removing the ink from the paper. Instead, place these items on a table to dry out. Paper towels, on the other hand, are your best friend when it comes to any other type of paper document. After you’ve laid out your documents, start using a fan to air dry them. Weights can be placed on each side of the paper to ensure that it dries flat.
