SERVPRO Can Offer You the Professional Assistance Necessary to Determine What to Discard or Salvage

When a fire ravages your Wilmington home, you might have a difficult time determining whether to remove everything for disposal or try to find ways to save some of the contents. The decision is rarely easy since several factors play a role, including:
• Level of damage on the items
• The monetary or sentimental value of items
• The level of work needed to salvage items

How does SERVPRO help determine what to save?

Scoping a property thoroughly after fire damage incidents in Wilmington is crucial in determining the appropriate response. Our technicians perform several steps during the scoping process to understand the loss better. We establish crucial details, such as:
• Depth of charring in wooden materials
• The type and amount of residue deposited on materials
• The items that have a sentimental value to you
During the scoping process, we also separate items into categories of salvageable, unsalvageable, and questionable based on the level of damage we identify.

Does professional restoration increase the chance of saving valuables?

Saving items affected by fire requires several processes, including cleaning, deodorization, and resurfacing, among others. Our technicians help by utilizing specialized techniques when performing these steps or liaising with specialized restoration services, which perform precise procedures for us, thus improving the outcome. Advanced cleaning procedures help with stain removal, removal of residues from surfaces without causing additional damages, among other things.

There is a variety of specialized restoration services out there offering services such as restoration of electronics, furniture refinishing, dry cleaning, document restoration, and art restoration. Our crew chiefs make the necessary plans, including contacting the specialty restorers and creating a schedule for them to collect the item at the job site or our warehouse in case of a move-out.

We attempt to restore fire damaged content to preloss condition whenever possible, "Like it never even happened."

The right response helps make fire loss bearable. Call SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere at (302) 992-0104 to help. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
