Protective gear, Uniforms and Accessory cleaning
Restoring what you never knew could be
AIR has invested in the technologies and employee training and certification that make it one of the foremost contents restoration authorities in the country. By carefully qualifying, testing and selecting the right restoration technology partners, we have assembled a world-class restoration services laboratory where we tackle some of the most challenging cleaning and restoration tasks. And just like our mitigation and reconstruction work, our contents cleaning work is completely guaranteed to be effective or you will not be charged.
AIR specializes in the cleaning and restoration of the following contents categories:
- Soft goods: Patented, hydraulic action that thoroughly cleans uniforms, turnout gear and other large soft leather or fabric items from any contamination including hazmat and biohazards.
- Hard goods: Ultrasonic cleaning of metals, glass, plastics for various equipment, even firearms.
- Electronics: Disassembly and cleaning using deionized water and controlled drying for items such as 2-way radios, defibrillators, laptops, tasers, flashlights and other first response gear that are exposed to contaminants during their use.
Soft Goods-Turnout gear, Uniforms, Accessories
What used to be a badge of honor, a firefighter’s sooty, dirty turnout gear, is now a recognized health liability to anyone exposed to it after its use in a fire. Several studies are available documenting the links to firefighter cancer rates and diseases related to contaminated turnout gear (a.k.a. “Bunker Gear” or “Firefighter PPE”).
By utilizing our Esporta Wash System®, firefighter turnout gear can be safely cleaned in compliance with NFPA 1851 standards and returned to service unharmed. The nature of Esporta’s patented hydraulic washing action does not subject the gear to the kind of wear associated with mechanical action washers and extractors.
This cleaning action helps to extend the heat resistance and overall life expectancy of the ensemble and more importantly, the firefighter wearing it. We also offer the required inspections and repairs of this gear, per NFPA 1851, to back up our promise. At AIR, even leather contents such as helmets and boots are able to be cleaned and restored.
Trust AIR to clean, deodorize and fully decontaminate uniforms and accessories soiled in the line of duty.BEFORE & AFTER
Based on the same technology used in medical and precision industrial settings, AIR’s ultrasonic staged cleaning system enables us to clean and restore hard goods of nearly any composition — from police enforcement weapons to brass and woodwind instruments. These items can be cleaned from contamination from both normal use and tarnishing as well as severe fire/smoke/soot contamination, and be sanitized for use in any food services environment.BEFORE & AFTER
Contaminants from regular use in first response environments, or heavy exposure from acute events such as a fire can translate into costly replacement of mobile electronics like 2-way radios. AIR has the ability to affordably disassemble, clean, sanitize and dry electronics. Further, we guarantee the asset’s pre-loss working condition for 90 days, utilizing our unique deionized water wash bays and drying chambers. Retiring heavily contaminated electronics is now a practice of the past, given this unique alternative.BEFORE & AFTER
Esporta Wash System
Utilizing the innovative, patented Esporta Wash System®, AIR can reclaim 85% of the soft goods that are normally discarded in a disaster. We utilize pre-programmed wash recipes depending on the type of contents being washed and the type and amount of contamination. The patented cleaning process holds items in place while forcing them through the eco-friendly chemical and water formula, rather than fatiguing materials as happens with typical mechanical action washing machines and extractors.
Ultrasonic Hard Goods Cleaning System
AIR’s ultrasonics system offers superior cleaning capabilities and unsurpassed efficiency. Starting with a pre-rinse station, moving to prewashers, ultrasonic cleaner, rinse station, sanitization module and finally to dry, AIR can quickly turn around any hard good (like an entire home’s worth of fine china, silver and crystal damaged from smoke) in a matter of hours. Even musical instruments can be quickly processed and turned around.
Deionized Water Electronics Cleaning
AIR’s electronic cleaning systems give us a fail-safe, systematic restoration procedure that ensures consistency and high quality results in an efficient manner. Our electronics cleaning, drying and deodorizing system is capable of handling nearly every type of consumer and professional electronic equipment from portable two-way radios to laptops and microwaves and even large, oversized LCD TVs.
