A large restaurant burned to the ground and the businesses on either side received smoke damage from the air traveling through a common duct area ventilation systems. ‘O My Sole’, the shoe store on the South side, chose the FreshStart process to solve their problem . . . the Coffee Shop owners on the North side of the restaurant chose the tradition chlorine bleach “wipe down’ method to solve their smoke damage problem.
The next morning at 10:00 AM ‘O My Sole’ was open for business with only minimal disruption and a minor loss of display merchandise and inventory. Four days later the Coffee Shop was still not open for business, although several workers had been working 24/7 in their attempt to reach every little nook and cranny where the foul smelling smoke had penetrated.
The FreshStart by Prompt Care ® Patented, Federally Registered gaseous state decontamination process penetrated exactly where the smoke traveled and the entire process took less than ten hours. As the owner of ‘O My Sole’ also pointed out, the ‘chlorine wipe’ would have destroyed all the boxes containing their inventory and probably many of the shoes as well.
The key to the overwhelming success in this example was the owner’s immediate call to Prompt Care. Since nothing in the store had been moved . . . the treatment reached exactly where the smoke had traveled. Had the contents been moved, it is possible that the process might not have saved as many boxes/shoes. The reason he called so quickly . . . earlier we had treated his home for allergens . . . he was already a satisfied customer.
