Considerations Before, During, and After Restoring Equipment
This blog will provide a deep dive into restoration considerations, to ensure that the right recommendations are conveyed, and decontamination processes are not viewed as an environment outside of the OEM’s design requirements.


 
The Aftermath of a Fire: The Contamination You Cannot See
After a fire, it is easy to spot contamination in the form of soot and/or water (from sprinkler systems). However, smoke and soot can spread to areas of the facility not directly affected by the fire, depositing products of incomplete combustion on highly sensitive equipment.


 
Disinfecting Agents & Their Effect on Equipment
Concerns regarding high-touch surfaces have become top of mind for various entities to control the spread of COVID-19. While there is an advantage to fogging, this type of application can quickly become the cause of future equipment breakdown.


 
The Benefits of Equipment Restoration
Whether you’re an insurance adjuster or a business owner, the goal of minimizing production downtime and business interruption is at the top of the priority list following an incident. This is when alternative options to replacement, such as technical equipment restoration, are critical to understand.


 
Computer Server Damage Restoration
Following a fire, water, or other type of incident, the contamination deposited on equipment can adversely affect electrical, electronic and mechanical assemblies. Sometimes the contaminants are visible, such as dark soot, while others blend in with existing debris, making themselves known over time.


 
How Restoration is Different from Cleaning or Repair
After a disaster or incident, business owners need to restore operations as quickly as possible. In many cases, cleaning is the primary focus, and when it comes to the building, that may be enough to resume production. However, this approach will not restore functionality or confidence when considering technical equipment.


 
Is a Manufacturer Considering Voiding an Equipment Warranty or Service Contract? AREPA Can Help
An incident causes contaminants to settle on sensitive, newly purchased analytical equipment and professional decontamination followed by functional testing was performed. Since the equipment was fairly new, you would like the warranty to remain intact. What can you do?


 
Fact vs. Fiction: 5 Common Misconceptions Regarding Equipment Losses
After a loss to business-critical equipment, claim professionals and business owners alike focus on restoring productivity as quickly as possible. To do this, it’s important to make sure you understand all the options and know the truth behind some common misconceptions surrounding equipment restoration.


 
Corrosion vs. Rust – What’s the Difference?
Corrosion and rust are often used interchangeably. While corrosion and rust are both a result of oxidation reactions (where an element combines with oxygen), there are differences between the two. Read on to learn more about these differences.
