When disaster strikes and you discover that your home has been damaged by water, lightning, fire, or another catastrophe, the only thoughts on your mind are what can be salvaged. Our homes are typically the places that contain our valuables, keepsakes, and treasured mementos from childhood to the current day. When the sanctity of that space is invaded and personal items are damaged, it can feel as if your entire past has been destroyed. However, the team at Renovation Pros is just a phone call away at 951-225-1570 to assist you with the restoration of your treasures, furnishings, and the contents of your home.
What Personal Property Can Be Restored?
The process of personal property restoration includes cleaning, repairing, and restoring personal items after they have been damaged. First, it is essential to understand that personal property restoration deals with recovering and repairing items or belonging in the house that were not actually a part of the property. So this covers all your photos, keepsakes, and memorabilia. In addition, this service covers the items inside your home but not affixed to it like your furniture, clothing, cookware, and dishes.
Knowing all the items covered in this process, you can understand the many steps involved in determining what can be restored and how that task is accomplished. For example, items damaged by water or smoke can often be cleaned and sanitized to return them to safety and functionally.
Hard or solid items like dishes and pots and pans are more easily cleaned and sanitized because of the exterior surface. Softer items such as textiles, fabric furniture, and stuffed animals can be more challenging to clean and deodorize. The most important thing to remember when considering property restoration is that your health and safety and that of your loved ones should always be the priority over keeping an item that could pose a health risk due to mold or other contamination.
How Is Contents Restoration Different From Personal Property Restoration?
The critical difference in contents restoration is the type of structure that was damaged. In these cases, the damaged property was commercial rather than residential. So the commercial property owner would contact Renovation Pros to have the contents of the property secured, inventoried, then packed and moved to a secure location for restoration and possibly storage. Again, there is a determination of what can be salvaged via cleaning, deodorizing and sanitizing. It is vital to act quickly to eliminate as much potential as possible for mold growth and further contamination and health hazards.

Many homeowners and business owners are shocked to learn that items like documents, photographs, and books can often be professionally restored. However, without the help of the Renovation Pros, you could be throwing away meaningful treasures from your past and essential documents that you assumed would always be worthless and even become hazardous due to mold contamination. Call 951-225-1570 to engage our staff in the process of restoring your damaged items to ensure the best possible outcome while minimizing your stress.
