These salt and pepper shakers were in a house fire. They were covered with soot. We were able to clean these shakers in our ultrasonic tank allowing them to be cleaned inside and out. The ultrasonic waves penetrate the soot as well as get into every nock of the item. This removes the soot, the source of the odor, from every part of the item. Choosing SERVPRO of Marshall, Sedalia and Columbia to help you clean your contents gets you the opportunity to get more of your items restored back to pre fire loss condition. Not every restoration company has these tools to help their clients.
