Community Outreach – Golf Tournaments

We are always trying to give back to our local communities and this quarter was no different as Zipco once again participated in multiple golf tournaments during the summer and fall, supporting various local charitable organizations.

We sponsored and played in the second annual Welcome House Charity Golf Tournament held at Milburn CC in September. The event raised over $100k for Welcome House, a group that supports men recovering from drug and alcohol addition. See more about this organization here Welcome House

Zipco also played in the Liberty Hospital golf tournament in September at Staley Farms, benefiting the hospital and it’s charitable foundation. This tournament also raised close to $100k. Check out the mission of the hospital’s foundation here Liberty Hospital Foundation.

Another golf event was the Thomas O’Sullivan Foundation tournament at Swope Park, benefiting an organization that provides funding for research, education, advocacy, prevention and detection of colon cancer. We also supported the Kansas City Claims Managers Council tournament at Hillcrest benefitting Cabins 4 Kids, Construction Safety Group KC tournament at Shoal Creek, and the Northland Regional Chamber of Commerce tournament at Paradise Point.

New Service Offering – Textiles

Zipco Restoration & Contracting is now a 100% full-service restoration contractor as we add textile cleaning to our array of services. As an Esporta Certified Operator, we utilize a patented restoration technology that is capable of restoring over 90% of the soft contents in a house and over 85% of the soft contents that were previously considered non-restorable (and thrown away) when using traditional cleaning methods used by restoration dry cleaners.

We are now able to restore articles of value – sentimental and priceless articles – that people have lost due to flood, fire, mold, whatever the disaster. Esporta’s next generation patented technology is ushering in a new era in soft contents restoration.

We are planning an Open House in November to show off this new technology so stay tuned.

26 Ways to Prep Your Home For Winter

Mild weather makes fall the perfect time to get your home ready for the colder months ahead. If you live in an area susceptible to heavy snow and cold temperatures, these winterization steps could save you from expensive damage and keep your energy bill low.

Preventative maintenance keeps snow and ice from causing structural damage which, aside from threatening physical collapse, can also promote mold growth and cost a lot more to repair than it would have cost to maintain. By spending some money up front to insulate and seal your home, you could lower your monthly energy bills for years.

These tips are especially important if you recently moved into your home—be as thorough as possible in your first year of homeownership and you’ll likely have to do less in the coming years.
