The team behind Viking Restoration DKI pours more than 16 years of experience into their work as they collaborate with Disaster Kleenup International. This network of restoration contractors helps victims of disasters rebuild their lives with an eco-friendly approach. When floods, fire, and mold strike, Viking restoration techs respond day or night with their upkeep efforts and carefully inspect their work to ensure safety.
In addition to providing general restorative services, they offer a unique approach to fire and smoke damage in their ultrasonic cleaning and processing area. In this tidy laboratory-like setting, techs don white coats and rubber gloves before meticulously scouring soot-sullied items, such as dishes, electronics, and precious porcelain doll collections, to make them good as new. They can also deodorize furniture, clean carpets, restore antiques, and help clients store their belongings throughout the process. Once the goods are spick-and-span, techs wrap fragile items in paper and foam and store them in wooden crates until customers are ready to move back into their newly restored homes.
Southern Maine Storage’s 223 units line up in single-file lines to impress residential and commercial customers with their varying degrees of square-footage. The fully paved, overgrown safes stretch up to 10'x30' to accommodate overstock merchandise, boxed belongings, and haunted sofa cushions. An outdoor parking area provides refuge for cars, boats, and campers during the off-season, and an electronic security system staves off would-be thieves with its high fences and moat of alligators. After signing up for at least one month of storage, customers receive a 24-hour personal access code that allows them to check on their wares anytime throughout the week. Southern Maine Storage’s store also carries locks and complimentary hand trucks and pallets to alleviate the anxieties of moving.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
