We Give Your Contents the Care They Deserve
To many, the word “home” means much more than its dictionary definition, which is “one’s place of residence” according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Instead, what makes your house your home is the contents and belongings that lie inside. At SERVPRO, we’ve seen countless instances of emergency water events such as leaks and floods significantly damage homes and the cherished contents that they hold. We understand the value that you and your family place in your belongings, which is why our team strives to take the utmost care of your home’s contents after a water damage event, working to restore them rather than replace them.
We also know that every water loss is different and requires a unique plan of action. As a result, we offer multiple different types of contents restoration services that fit a variety of scenarios in order to provide the best protection for your belongings. Continue reading to take a closer look at the ways in which we look after and care for your home’s water-damaged contents.
Here at SERVPRO, we provide 7 types of contents restoration services in order to ensure that we have a service that will fit your needs, depending on the nature of the water damage that your home’s contents have sustained. Depending on the volume of residue, we may use dry cleaning or wet cleaning if the residue is light or moderate to heavy, respectively. In the event that the damaged contents cannot be restored with wet cleaning, spray and wipe or foam cleaning may be utilized. Foam cleaning is often appropriate for fabric items. Immersion cleaning or abrasive cleaning may also be a good option, depending on the type of items affected.
Move-Out and Pack-Out
When the amount of water damage to your home’s contents is significant, our move-out and pack-out services may be useful, as they help prevent your belongings from undergoing any further damage during the process of restoration. After the job has been completed, we also provide move-in day services, but these may vary depending on your insurance.
