After a Fire, What Is Content Cleaning?

No one wants to experience the shock and fear of an unexpected fire incident. At SERVPRO of Colorado Springs Southeast, we understand how devastating it can be to lose everything in your home or business. That's why our team is dedicated to helping you through this difficult time, beginning with a thorough inspection of your property and belongings.

It's never fun to experience a fire loss incident.

It's never fun to experience a fire loss incident. The damage can range from minor smoke damage to catastrophic structural damage and cause you to lose everything in your home, including sentimental items like photos, treasured heirlooms, and family memorabilia.

One thing that all fire losses have in common is the need for cleaning up after the flames have been put out and the smoke has settled. In almost every single case, the safest and most efficient way to handle a fire cleanup job is by calling your local SERVPRO experts for help. They have the training, experience, and equipment necessary to handle a fire cleanup job of any kind and can go about it safely.

Some belongings can be cleaned and restored

As you deal with the aftermath, remember that your belongings can often be cleaned and restored rather than replaced. For example, if your clothes were in a closet and were protected from fire exposure, then dry cleaning is an option that can remove smoke smell from clothing. Other items may have been affected by smoke or soot but are otherwise salvageable. These items can be cleaned with ultrasonic scrubbers or content cleaning processes at companies like SERVPRO of Colorado Springs Southeast.

Specialized cleaning methods and equipment

When you call SERVPRO of Colorado Springs Southeast, we'll make every effort to restore your belongings using specialized cleaning methods and equipment. We'll work with you to determine the best course of action, provide a written estimate and time frame for completion, and provide a detailed report of the work performed. As a locally owned and operated business in the Colorado Springs area, our team is always nearby and ready to help!

Inspection is the first step in content cleaning

The first step in content cleaning is a thorough inspection by one of our production specialists. We will discuss the condition of each item and make an estimate for cleaning costs. Our experts can also help you decide how to dispose of damaged items or store them until they are ready for use again. We offer pack-out services where our team removes your belongings out of your property and keeps them safely stored away at our warehouse during the restoration process.
