How We Salvage Items With Fire Damage in Amherst
Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration Is a Cornerstone of SERVPRO Services
Practically all fire events are destructive, leaving homeowners with ravaged homes and destroyed belongings. While a blaze is capable of ruining a broad range of possessions, it's also possible to keep the contents of your home out of the trash heap.
If you're a homeowner dealing with fire damage in Amherst, you probably think that many of your possessions are a lost cause. However, when you call SERVPRO, we'll work to restore your belongings and save you money. Here's how we salvage a variety of items, even those affected by fire damage.
Electronics and Appliances
It's not just flames that can destroy electronics and appliances, but the soot and smoke that's left over after a fire emergency has ended. In fact, soot and smoke can erode metals and finishes, wreck circuitry, and make appliances and electronic devices malfunction. Our SERVPRO technicians will carefully assess your electronics to see if they can be salvaged and then rid them of damaging soot deposits. This cleaning is only done to the exterior covers. For actual electronic repair work, we can refer you to a competent partner.
Books and Documents
Even if flames didn't directly contact your paper documents and books, smoke could leave them with markings and odors that stick. We have industry leading tools that can restore paper of all types, even collectibles. The method that we use will depend upon how fragile the document or book is -- the sooner you call SERVPRO after fire damage has occurred, the greater the chances that we can salvage delicate items.
Rugs, Carpet, and Furnishings
Though it may appear to be ruined by water from fighting the fire or smoke and soot, don't automatically assume that your area rugs and carpet will have to be thrown out. Though we may need to replace your carpet pads, we're usually able to clean, deodorize, and restore a wide variety of rugs and carpet types. We can eliminate many odors by placing hydroxyl generators to purge the air of odor causing particulates as we go about our tasks of fire damage restoration.
