SERVPRO Saves Your Valuables After A Wilmington Fire
Restoring Personal Belongings Affected by Fire Damage Helps Restore Your Wilmington Home
The saying goes “where there's smoke, there's fire,” and many times, the smoke is just as destructive as the flames. At SERVPRO, we mitigate damage to both your Wilmington home and the contents inside. We know that your family's belongings are what makes your house 'home' and without them, things are just not the same. Our goal is to make things “Like it never even happened” for you.
When a family's home in Wilmington sustains fire damage, SERVPRO technicians working on the house's structure to remove damaged areas also take the items inside into consideration. We box things up, room to room, in clean boxes and label each with its inventory sheet's number. We take the majority of these items to our facility to clean and restore them.
We can set aside any items that your family needs immediately so we can work on those first, making sure that you receive them as soon as possible. Soot can spread its griminess with the slightest touch. We have the equipment to remove residue, even in the deepest grooves and minute details of your belongings.
We use ultrasonic cleaning techniques that act in a way similar to hydrogen peroxide, with its bubbling action, to remove foreign substances after fire damage. While we can clean hard surfaces in your home with special cloths that trap soot particles, textured items require more attention. A short time in the ultrasonic cleaning equipment works well at removing soot that manual cleaning might take hours to accomplish.
We can restore and clean items that can be immersed in water and also dry quickly. Your Grandmother's china and knick-knacks from your parents' vacations can once again find their place in your home and look just as lovely as before. Many customers find that years of dust that accumulated on their belongings no longer dulls them. Our equipment is this effective. Therefore, if antiques should not receive this treatment to maintain their patina, please inform us, so we know to use other restoration methods. While these might take longer, the final effects are our goal and your satisfaction with our work.
Once cleaned, some items might require deodorization. We use special chambers to do this with hydroxyl generators that remove the odors still embedded in these things. We only use ozone on completely dry items, and both methods are equally effective.
