Feathers and Leathers
By Jeffrey M. Nocera



Whoa, whoa..This informational piece isn’t going where you think it is. Get your collective minds out of the gutter, folks. I’m referring to restoring feathers, leathers, and other soft-content items to like-new usage following a flood or other damage. If a Vegas showgirl or Liberace ever experienced a catastrophe, here’s what they would have done:

In most cases that involve heavy smoke or soot damage, highly sensitive fabrics or items such as these would likely be paid at Actual Cash Value (ACV) by the homeowner’s insurance carrier. However, should the owner desire restoration instead of a payout, traditional cleaning techniques such as drying and ozoning them would not yield needed results. Instead, a newly-patented technique using hydraulic pressure and environmentally-friendly detergents to force smoke, soot, moisture, and mold out of damaged items and preserving the structural integrity of sensitive items.

On average, 85-90% of contaminated soft contents that are typically cashed out can be restored using this process. Turnaround time for essentials and emergency needs can be as little as 24 hours, and standard return time for restored contents is fairly fast as well.This cleaning method isn't restricted to priceless delicates; It can be used for regular laundry, leather goods, stuffed animals, draperies and sports equipment. For example, a sewage-damaged collector saddle was taken to a certified provider with a Relative Light Unit (RLU) contamination factor of 829. After application of the cleaning process, it was returned to the owner with an RLU of 7, which is a food/medical grade cleanliness rating.

Priceless collectible or just an item you want to restore, damage does not need to be permanent.
