SERVPRO is the Best Choice for Cleaning Your Contents!

9/8/2023 (Permalink)

A fire in your home can be devastating especially when some of your valuable contents get damaged! Your items are valuable to you and we here at SERVPRO understand and respect that! We take pride in taking care of your items as if they were our own. 

                Contents such as clothing or other items that have been damaged, but not destroyed by a fire can sometimes be restored by dry cleaning and other methods to remove soot and smoke smells. This process is called content cleaning, and we here at SERVPRO are content cleaning experts!

                There are two ways we classify contents soft or hard. Soft contents include items such clothing, bedding, leather goods, uniforms, etc. These consist of items that are made from fabric or other soft materials. Hard contents include items such as furniture, electronics, antiques, sports equipment, etc.

                There are several different cleaning methods that are used depending on the type of items that need to be cleaned and what would be the most affective. Dry cleaning is often used to remove light soot/residue on pre clean clothes. Wet cleaning is used to remove heavy residue. Foam cleaning is used for upholstery fabrics and the spray and wipe method is used on items that may be damaged by the wet cleaning process. There also is immersion cleaning is used for contents that can be submerged in cleaning products. Abrasive cleaning is only used on some hard surfaces when other methods have not been successful.

                Prior to cleaning your contents we will send out a fire restoration crew chief who will examine your belongings and determine which items are salvageable and unsalvageable, this is called content analysis.

                In some cases pack outs are needed and this requires us to pack out all your damaged salvageable belongings and move them to our facility for cleaning. Items that have been cleaned are then kept in a storage container until they are ready to be packed back and delivered back to the homeowner.

                Here at SERVPRO our team of highly trained fire restoration team members are eager to help you and your family in a time of need. We know how valuable your items are and we have the system, equipment, cleaning products, and knowledge to restore your belongings. If you experience a fire and need assistance please call us at 518-677-3444.
