About Us

CRDN is the leading expert in textile and electronic restoration. We serve as part of the emergency response team, working with policyholders, insurance representatives, and contractors to restore peace of mind after a disaster. Our services reduce replacement costs and limit additional living expenses. In short, we help policy owners get back on their feet.

Experts Ready To Serve You

CRDN has always been at the forefront of innovation. Since our founding in 2001, we have set the bar for textile restoration and continue to raise it as we refine our processes and find new ways to serve our customers. CRDN was the first to offer a formalized restoration solution for clothing and textiles affected by smoke, odor, soot, mildew and water.

Founder, Wayne Wudyka, recalls how it all began. "A woman brought a pile of soot covered clothing into my drycleaning business. She was upset, a fire had destroyed her home and she needed someone to restore her belongings.”

Wayne accepted the challenge and thoroughly cleaned and restored all her garments to “like new” condition. Nearly two decades later CRDN continues to help individuals throughout the U.S., Canada, and the UK overcome the setbacks of both small claims and large disasters.

Now, we’ve taken everything we know and learned about restoration and applied it to restoring consumer electronics. We understand that textiles and electronics are more than a collection of "things." That's why we built technology, processes, and a nationwide network of service experts to meticulously restore items to their former glory.

R&R Magazine: Commercial Restoration Electronics & Textiles Best Practices

When a loss due to fire, explosion or storms occurs in a business, it’s critical to return operations to normal as quickly as possible. Oftentimes, a professional restoration company is called in to assess and restore electronics, textiles and window treatments to pre-loss condition. This is because – using best practices – electronics, textiles, and window treatments are often quickly restorable at a fraction of the cost of replacement. Moreover, in many cases, restoration work can be quickly conducted on site with the goal of getting the business up and running sooner.

R&R Magazine: Best Practices for Electronic Restoration

It’s difficult to imagine that home electronics can be restored following a flood, lightning strike, or fire, but they often can be. Through careful post-disaster assessment, tracking, and restoration, home electronics — many of which store critical family data — are often restorable at 30% of the cost of replacement.

There’s an old saying that when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. When it comes to restoring garments and other textiles involved with an insurance claim, a full tool box is required to successfully handle dozens of types of contaminants, hundreds of types of materials, and thousands of types of items.

Floodwaters pose immediate dangers to human health because they often mix with contaminants on the ground, including pesticides, sewage, and trash. Even after the floodwaters recede, the microbes and mold that are left behind on clothing and textiles can spur allergic reactions, irritation, gastrointestinal disease, as well as respiratory and soft-tissue infections.

Serving a Green Purpose

For more than fifteen years, CRDN has restored clothing and other fabrics so families don't have to discard and replace important belongings. By restoring textiles and electronics to pre-loss condition, CRDN reduces the amount of waste and pollution caused by disasters.

  • 65% of our textile restoration work is water-based ("wet cleaning”), which involves biodegradable soaps and detergents.
  • 90% of our locations recycle hangers for production purposes.
  • Many CRDN operators invest in energy-efficient cleaning equipment that cuts water use by more than 53% and decreases dryer gas consumption by more than 57%.
  • Each year, CRDN is responsible for keeping millions of pounds of textiles and electronics out of landfills.
