Content Restoration and Fire Damage

After a fire, your most important job is to get the damage cleaned up as quickly as possible. SERVPRO of Stone Oak offers content cleaning services to help you restore the valuables inside your home or business after a fire incident.

Non-porous items, such as clothing, can be dry-cleaned

If your clothing has been near the fire, it is possible that they will smell like smoke. They might also be covered in soot.  In these instances, the clothes might feel like they are ruined. That is not the case! Sending your clothes to a professional dry cleaner can save your clothing.

The clothing should be dry-cleaned at least twice before being worn again. This will ensure that any residual odors are removed as much as possible before wearing them again.

High frequency sound waves are used to clean some items

Ultrasonic cleaning is an option for some items that are not porous. Porosity refers to the ability of an object to absorb moisture, so porous materials include clothing and carpeting. Non-porous objects include glass, mirrors, and ceramics.

The process involves placing the item in a tank with water and detergent solution, then vibrating it at high frequency with sound waves until dirt is loosened from the surface. This can be effective for removing dust from non-porous items like electronics or kitchenware, but it's not suitable for clothing or other textiles because they're too absorbent.

Content cleaning is an important part of fire mitigation

Content cleaning is an important part of mitigating fire damage because it reduces the amount of material that must be replaced. SERVPRO of Stone Oak can help with content cleaning and smoke damage.

Our SERVPRO technicians are highly trained to mitigate fire damage and clean up after a fire. We use specialized equipment to clean smoke and soot from interior structures as well as personal possessions, including clothing, furniture, and treasured family heirlooms. The goal of content cleaning is to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition as much as possible. If part of an item cannot be saved, we will work with you to replace those items within your insurance policy limits.
