Residential Content Cleaning & Restoration Services

When your home suffers damage that was the result of a flood, a fire, smoke, or other common causes, the consequences often go beyond the structure of your property itself. It is often the case that the valuable contents of your home are also damaged. This can include items that have significant financial or sentimental value. The good news is the fact that many of these items can be restored. This is made possible by a process that is known as content cleaning. It is one of the areas of service that our team at ServiceMaster Fire & Water Damage Restoration is well-versed in. We are the Lexington area’s trusted professionals when it comes to residential content cleaning. When disaster strikes, you can count on us to quickly respond so we can get to work saving the valuable property items that mean a great deal to you and your family.

We recently had a busted pipe in our bathroom while at work, and we had major water damage. Servicemaster was there within a couple hours or our problem to start the process of drying out the house. Derek and his crew were very friendly and helpful in explaining and walking us thru the whole process from beginning to end. If we ever have another emergency like this Servicemaster will be the only people we call!

My insurance agent gave me a list of numbers and Service Master respond to my call within a couple of hours and had someone at my house started on my flooded basement by midmorning. Everyone I spoke with throughout the process was professional and knew what they were doing.

Highly recommend this company! Tuesday afternoon, I came home on my lunch break and stepped into ankle deep water thanks to our water heater busting. We have a one story house on a slab and every single room in the house was flooded. Within a couple hours we had someone from ServiceMaster come out to our house to take a look and he was very nice. He left with the promise that he was going to get his guys out that night to start the cleanup process and he made good on that promise. Within 20-30 minutes of leaving our house, he called to let us know when his guys would be coming. They moved all of our stuff and hooked up so much equipment to help dry our house. I am grateful to these employees for how long they stayed at our house in order to get everything done. Thanks to the quick response on their part, our baseboards and drywall were saved. Thank you for making this terrible situation not so terrible!

Content Cleaning - What Is It?

Content cleaning is a sophisticated process where our certified content restoration professionals take all the necessary steps to clean, deodorize, and disinfect items that have been damaged from water, sewage, smoke, or fire. Our service helps you to save items of value to you that might have been a loss without the assistance of our experienced and knowledgeable professionals. When you leave your possessions in the hands of our dedicated team, you can rest easy knowing that they are being looked after by skilled experts who know how to handle them and return them to their pre-damage state.

Our Emergency Content Cleaning Process

Here at ServiceMaster Fire & Water Damage Restoration, our team utilizes an extensive range of residential content cleaning equipment and processes. To restore the valuable contents of your home to their pre-damage state, we make use of the following methods:

  • Ultrasonic cleaning
  • Specialized drying chambers
  • Spray and wipe methods
  • Dry cleaning methods
  • Immersion cleaning
  • Ozone treatment
  • Deodorization methods

Once the time arrives to clean your belongings, we open the various boxes one at a time and decide on which cleaning method will be the most effective for each type of item. The methods that we choose depend on several key factors. These include whether the content is hard or soft. We also considered whether the items should be hand or machine-washed. Beyond this, we consider which cleaning chemicals are appropriate to use on the specific materials in question.

Our Content Cleaning Service Can Restore These Items and More!

At ServiceMaster Fire & Water Damage Restoration, our residential content cleaning services begin with a contents pack-out. Once the contents of your property have been safely packed up and moved to our secure facility, our team will take the time to carefully cross-reference all packing materials and meticulously unload your belongings.

Our pack out process goes as follows:

  • Carefully compiling a detailed inventory of your items
  • Packing and transporting your items to our facility
  • Providing you with an inventory copy
  • Conducting the cleaning process
  • Carefully returning your items to you once the rest of the restoration work has been completed

Examples of items that we can restore with our content cleaning service include:

  • Appliances
  • Photos
  • Electronics
  • Artwork
  • Furniture
  • Clothing
  • Fabrics
  • Toys
  • Rugs
  • Books
  • Documents

Though you might be feeling a sense of hopelessness when your valuable items are damaged in a disaster, our team of content cleaning professionals can help. You will be surprised to learn how effectively we can restore these types of property items.

When we return your items to you, we use the same meticulous protocols that we utilized during the pack-out process. We understand that as important as it is for you to have your home’s structural damage repaired, you also value saving as many items of personal property as possible when a fire or flood occurs.

What Things Cannot Be Cleaned or Restored?

Our residential content cleaning team understands that you are going through a tough time when your home and valuable possessions have been damaged by fire or water. With this in mind, you can count on us always doing our best to save and restore them. Though this is the case, the unfortunate reality is that sometimes the damage is simply too great, and specific items may not be good candidates for restoration. Throughout the process, you can count on us being upfront and honest about which items can be restored and which ones cannot. Being straightforward with you regarding these important matters is very important to us.

How We Determine If Items Can Be Cleaned, Restored, Recovered

Our content recovery team carefully analyzes all affected items from your home to make the determination as to which ones can be classified as recoverable. When we deem an item as being unrecoverable, it is because it has simply taken on too much damage for any of our content cleaning methods to work effectively.
