Fires are devastating to the victims. Typically they have enough to deal with without trying to replace household items. Some small relief can be found in the personal items that can be cleaned and returned to victims of a fire. But, sometimes items can’t be replaced at all — or, at least, that’s how it seems. That’s where All Nation Restoration comes in.
All Nation Restoration is a company that offers a very unique service. They are called in to help clean and restore items that have been damaged by fire or water used to put out the fire. Homeowners, businesses and insurance companies all love what All Nation Restoration can do. They keep down the cost of replacing things, and in some cases save items that could never be replaced.
Doing It by Hand
Originally, All Nation Restoration had a full staff of six that could work through about fifteen boxes of damaged goods per day. They would clean using cotton swabs, brushes, rags and solvents. In most cases they could get items clean, but sometimes the smell of smoke or mildew would not be eliminated entirely. Items with more intricate features, features which many keepsakes tend to have, were nearly impossible to get completely clean. That’s where Omegasonics ultrasonic cleaners enter the picture. Faster restoration, Better Results Imagine being able to reduce your staff by half while over quadrupling the output of that staff. Sound impossible? Well that is just what All Nation Restoration was able to do with Omegasonics’ ultrasonic cleaners. They now carry a staff of three to four and are capable of doing close to sixty boxes a day! How? By using ultrasonic cleaners. The results speak for themselves. Not only are speed and efficiency improved, but the pieces come out almost like new. Not only are they able to save things like plates, keepsake figurines and kitchen items, they can also save electronics! Steamatic has been able to increase the amount of items they are able to recover, up from around 70% to near 90%! Ultrasonic cleaners can help you, too; Check out our lines of cleaning, drying and soaps today!
A fire occurred at a 4-plex residential property located in Bastrop, Texas. Over the four month restoration, the roof structure was re-framed over two of the units, while three of the units were stripped down to studs and re-worked from the “rough-in” stage through to completion.
Total scope of work performed by All Nation Restoration surpassed $275,000, with the restoration completed in four months.
After a fire in a Austin Senior Living Community, All Nation Restoration was able to quickly restore 17 resident units, as well as the affected common areas. Half of the affected area was stripped down to stud walls, upgraded to current code (including installing a sprinkler system in the entire affected area), and re-built from there. The other half of the affected area was stripped of the finishes (wall coverings, floor covering, paint) and restored.
Our portion of the work was approximately $750,000 and was complete in two months. This quick project turnaround was very important as the residents of the 17 units were displaced while work was ongoing.
Following a fire at a precast manufacturing plant in Lakeway, Texas, All Nation was contracted to perform the facility restoration. The 30,000 square foot/50′ tall warehouse is precast construction with bar joist/metal deck roof structure. One-third of the roof decking was fire damaged and required replacement. The structure was then soda blasted and sealed with shellac for smoke and odor control. Additionally, all windows and overhead doors were replaced, the wood shop and offices were entirely re-built, the majority of the roof blocking was replaced and the entire TPO roof system was removed and replaced.
The total scope of work performed by All Nation Restoration was nearly $825,000. The entire scope of work on this project was completed in one month. A quick response was critical to this client as down time prevented them from meeting customer demand.
A fire occurred at a plastics distribution facility in Georgetown, Texas, requiring restoration services for the facility. The entire 40,000 sq-ft building was affected by fire and/or smoke. During the four month restoration, nearly 6000 sq-ft of the facility required new structural columns and beams as well as new 2×12 roof framing, miscellaneous block work and a new roof. The remainder of the structure was cleaned, dry ice blasted, and re-painted to mitigate the smoke damage.
The scope of work performed by All Nation Restoration exceeded $340,000 for this four month restoration project.
