Soft Content Restoration
Our certified Restoration Team is equipped to return soft contents damaged due to smoke, water, or soot back to pre-loss condition. This often means we can help save items previously considered unsalvageable. First General Services employs a wide variety of content cleaning equipment and processes, specific to the items being restored.
The Esporta Wash System is the only wet-wash device in the restoration industry that is designed to recover soft contents such as fabric from fire and water disasters. The Esporta Wash System restores damaged drapes, clothing & other fabrics.
This process is much more sophisticated than traditional machine washing or dry-cleaning. The Esporta Wash System uses hydraulic and mechanical energy to remove soil and contaminants from soft contents, saving thousands of dollars in replacement costs for both insurance companies and property owners. In addition, the environmentally responsible detergents we use have shown a 99% kill rate of all bacteria, mold, and fungi.
Some soft content items that can be restored include:
- Clothing & Uniforms
- Leather goods
- Business inventory
- Antiques & Collectibles
- Industrial & Specialty Items
- Sports Equipment
- Heirloom items

We proudly have the ability to clean collectibles that were previously impossible to salvage, restore and return irreplaceable and cherished items, and eliminate expensive replacement costs.
