Bringing Antique Bowls Back to Life
At SERVPRO of Chattanooga we promise to go over and beyond until the job is done. We ensure that you are updated in a timely manner about the status of the work that is being done. Our team strives to have professional yet relatable interactions with all our customers.
One job that our team recently worked on was where the house was struck by lightning and caught fire. During the job our team faced the initial issue of soot damage. Our customer had lost hope about saving these antique bowls that were passed down in the family because they didn't think we could save them. We were able to clean them and our customer was so appreciative that we could bring back something of meaning after having to deal with all the other losses from the fire.

We used something called an ultrasonic tank to clean these items. Ultrasonic energy causes the rapid formation and collapse of small bubbles in the liquid; known as cavitation. A huge burst of energy creates bubbles that quickly increase in size until they burst against the surface of the item. As you can see from the before and after picture the bowl looks good as new!
