NBD is not an acronym for anything specific, however the founder, Jack Schwartz coined the term “No Bad Days” on the banner for our first industry Property & Liability Resource Bureau Conference and local parade float in 1994. Our goal is to provide the best service possible in helping people and companies during an often times tragic and overwhelming period in their lives.
NBD developed for the insurance claims industry an industry database and process for stolen and damaged media (i.e. CD’s DVD, BETA and VHS tapes) that was used by more than 70 National Insurance Companies. Since 1993, NBD has been a pioneer by developing solutions for customers, such as:

At the insistence of two national insurance companies, NBD also became a pioneer by developing residential and commercial content electronic inventory pack-out and restoration protocols.
From 1993 to 2010 our company chose to remain a specialist in specific markets. As the commercial demand for equipment repair and restoration expanded, NBD attended classes, hired technical staff and purchased equipment to control the environments while servicing major equipment. With this knowledge and equipment, hiring structural repair personnel enabled NBD to provide “turnkey” service solutions to our customers. Today, we continue to expand our knowledge offering to a wider base of customers.
Yes, as long as the environment inside the place where cleaning is to be done has climate control storage available. In many cases, NBD personnel can do all of the necessary restoration on site. There are, however, circumstances and certain contents that do not allow for this process. For instance when odor and/or soot are particularly heavy or on specific electronics, because of the detail needed for cleaning or if the moisture levels in an area cannot be properly controlled
The evaluation and pricing of antiques and collectibles depends upon many factors, including: type of policy, parameters set by adjuster, and if a like kind and quality piece is available in the market currently. NBD will work to help the insurance company and the insured in determining the correct value. NBD can facilitate appraisals of antiques or items collectible in nature using our vast resource network.
Cleaning and restoration depends upon the type and extent of damage to the documents. If the fire was light and the paper products have a light dusting of soot and odor, then yes. If the fire and/or water loss was more extensive, then most likely they cannot be restored to the exact condition they were in prior to the loss. There will be some cockling and wicking that cannot be reversed at a cost effective price. The document or book helps to determine if it should be restored. The value of all restored documents and books will be safe to handle using NBD’s restoration process.
