IICRC Photo Contest - Leather Before IICRC Photo Contest - Leather After

Before: Urine stain on an aniline leather cushion.

After: Casing was removed from the cushion and soaked in a bucket of water for 24 hours. The leather casing was then removed and hung to dry before it was placed in a dryer to mill the leather – similar to the process a tannery uses to prepare the skin of the cow during the tanning process.

IICRC Photo Contest - Teddy Bear Before & After Before: Teddy bear thought by the insured company to be a total loss item.

After: Because it meant so much to the child, they allowed us the opportunity to attempt to salvage it. The insured was greatly pleased that we were not only able to remove the smoke odor but we were also able to remove nearly any evidence that the teddy bear was ever even in a fire loss.
