Contents and Textiles Cleaning and Restoration

Zipco Restoration & Contracting is now a 100% full-service restoration contractor as we added textile cleaning to our array of services late in 2019. 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.

Love your country. Love each other.

Is Clover Erupting In Your Lawn Too?

How To Get Rid Of Clover In Your Yard:

If four-leaf clovers bring good luck, three-leaf clovers bring stress to gardeners and homeowners everywhere. Clover is commonly considered a weed since it grows so abundantly in North America and throughout much of Europe. Although it does have some uses, it grows fast enough to overtake many turfgrasses, and its small white flowers distract from a lush green lawn. There are plenty of ways to get rid of clover without using synthetic weed killer, and we’ll go over the most common and effective methods.
However, keeping a lawn free of any kind of weed takes a great deal…. Read More

How Exactly Do You Catch Covid-19? There Is a Growing Consensus

Wall Street Journal:

Surface contamination and fleeting encounters are less of a worry than close-up, person-to-person interactions for extended periods. Six months into the coronavirus crisis, there’s a growing consensus about a central question: How do people become infected?

It’s not common to contract Covid-19 from a contaminated surface, scientists say. And fleeting encounters with people outdoors are unlikely to spread the coronavirus.

View From The Observation Deck

The pandemic lockdown has enabled me to get a few projects done around the exterior of the house this spring and summer. The family was outside four straight weekends performing mostly manual labor. It created an opportunity to work with all four of my kids in the yard tearing out shrubs and stumps, cutting down dead or dying trees, trimming trees, moving dirt, moving river rock, making two new planters, digging posts and putting in vinyl corner fence. I even rented a hydraulic stump grinder and my neighbor and I demolished 8 stumps on our properties. That was fun, actually. We talked about driving the neighborhood and offering to grind some stumps at $25 apiece since we had to rent it for half a day minimum. The kids’ labor was free for the older two, but I paid the younger two since neither has been able to work this summer until recently. I am happy to report that 3 of the 4 have great work ethics…the youngest….well the jury is still out on him. Easily distracted, but I also was paying by the hour so perhaps he is smarter than me. It’s not a high bar. I enjoyed the bonding time with all of them and they all can look at what they did and take some pride that they helped improve our property while we all learned a little bit more about each other.
