Your Belongings and Storm Damage
Storm and water damage affects not only the structure of your house but also your belongings. SERVPRO of North Tempe understands that your home is more than a structure; your family’s furniture, clothing, keepsakes, and other belongings help transform a house into a home.
That's why we do everything within our power to restore any and all personal belongings affected by a flood, fire, mold infestation, or other disaster.
When a storm flood or house fire strikes, it can damage or destroy every keepsake you own, from photographs to important documents to heirlooms. Our disaster response team has decades of experience cleaning, sanitizing and restoring not only your home, but your keepsakes and personal items as well.
We use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings, from wet and dry cleaning to spray and wipe, foam and abrasive cleaners. For electronics, documents, photographs, and other sensitive materials, we use specialized cleaning equipment to carefully restore the item without causing any further damage.
Sometimes, our cleaning services require a move-out / pack-out, whereupon the resident of the affected home needs to be temporarily relocated to allow us to perform our process. We always take inventory of your belongings to ensure that everything is returned to you once the restoration process is complete.
Storm and water damage need to be addressed right away. If you've been the victim of either, contact SERVPRO of North Tempe today (480) 456-0000
