When disaster strikes, your home and possessions can be left wet, stained, burnt, contaminated, dirty, and odorous. Emergency services like the fire department can sometimes introduce water damage when putting out a fire. Cleaning and restoring your contents is a process that must be handled meticulously to ensure the best possible outcomes for property owners, especially for irreplaceable items like family heirlooms, sensitive documents, expensive equipment, electronics, and artwork.

Content cleaning and recovery can include multiple trades and craftspeople for just one item, completely customized to meet the needs of homeowners across the United States. ATI provides services such as ultrasonic cleaning, deodorizing, and document drying to complement our emergency services.

Recovery and restoration services salvage and restore your building and its contents to their original condition after a disaster. These services are focused on repair to damage. Recovery or restoration is often covered under insurance policies, while renovations are not. Renovations are typically reserved for the building itself, not the contents within a building.
