Contents Restoration Examples
When disaster strikes, you not only have to worry about the safety of your family, home, or business, but you also have your belongings at risk. What will happen to your furniture, important paper documents, electronics, and valuable, sentimental items like antiques and collector’s items?
Even if insurance covers the cost of replacement, some items are irreplaceable. Enter HRS’s content restoration team with experience helping restore your valuable property following a fire, flood, or other disasters.
If your furniture is solid wood it can usually be restored, unless it was submerged in water for an extended period. The wood must be cleaned and dried before a determination can be made. If your furniture has a veneer on it, it is not likely to be salvageable. If your wood furniture was damaged in a fire and is covered in soot, professional restorers can vacuum off the soot and recondition it.
If your home or business is affected by a flood, restoring your fabric furniture will be especially difficult. Mold spores can permeate the porous fabric, quickly making it a mold removal and water extraction job. A professional restorer can remove the fabric and apply replacement fabric if the metal parts of the furniture are unaffected.
If your fabric furniture was damaged by fire, a professional restoration company will vacuum it, treat it with baking soda and specially formulated fabric cleaners to make it as good as new.
Photographs, Important Paper Documents and Books
The sooner a professional restorer can begin working on water and fire-damaged photos, documents, and books, the better. We have helped restore marriage licenses, birth certificates, books, and family photos. HRS Restoration Services can remove moisture so mold does not have a chance to take hold. We may use a combination of sponges, fans, and dehumidifiers to completely dry out these items.
Documents damaged by smoke and soot will be cleaned using a combination of chemical sponges and HEPA vacuums. HRS may also use ozone or other substances to deodorize books, papers, and photographs.
Artwork and Sculptures
We understand how valuable your artwork and sculptures are, and we take great pains to patch, repair, and renew these items. We use vacuums, degreasers, and other cleaning agents to remove smoke and soot.
If the artwork and sculptures are waterlogged, it is of the utmost importance to remove the glass, frame, and backing so the artwork does not adhere to them. A content restoration company like HRS Restoration Services will act quickly to air out the artwork and return it to its pre-incident state.
Water can quickly corrode electronics, so time is of the essence when it comes to preserving your digital files and personal electronics like laptops and flash drives. The restoration process is complicated by other factors such as humidity levels, the severity of the water damage, how long the device was submerged, and even how the device is made.
Following smoke damage, electronics are prone to short-circuiting or premature failure. HRS employs technicians with electronics restoration experience. These professionals will remove electronic items and relocate them to a clean and safe environment. At this point, they will assess smoke, fire, and water damage and work diligently to clean and restore them to working order.
HRS Contents Restoration Process
A professional contents restoration company should follow a series of steps. First, professionals will secure the premises and identify which items can be restored. Next, they will pack up and move the items to a secure location. Then, content restorers make a record of the items to guarantee safekeeping. After documentation, cleaning, deodorizing, and sanitizing is completed. The final step of contents restoration is to return items to the home or office or leave them to be stored in a secure facility.
Secure Premises and Identify Items to be Restored
Our contents restoration services in Denver will include an assessment and evaluation of the items in your home or commercial property to determine which can be restored. By noting the kind of damage that has occurred, and the current state of each piece, we can make an informed decision about how to proceed with the restoration process.
Pack up Items to Move to an Off-Site Location
We carefully prepare your electronics, furniture, paper files, artwork, and collectibles to move them to a secure area away from your home or business. Once they have been moved, our contents restoration team begins the restoration process to return these items to their pre-disaster state. Using state-of-the-art technology, experience, and IICRC and EPA-approved processes, we can rescue and renew crucial business property as well as sentimental items from your home.
Document Items to be Restored
HRS Restoration Services will itemize all the items to be restored so you can rest assured that your items are safe and accounted for. We will note what services are to be performed on the item so you can understand our process. Accountability and safekeeping are important steps in contents restoration.
Clean, Sanitize and Deodorize Items
All items to be restored will be cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized as quickly and efficiently as possible. The type of cleaning agents used will depend on the composition of the item, and the extent of damage it has undergone. Mold and water damage can be especially destructive, and the quicker we are called in to assist with these items, the higher the chance of recovery will be.
Return Items to Premises or Keep Secure in Storage
The final step of our contents restoration process includes returning your possessions to your home or business or securing their final storage in a facility. We take great care transporting your possessions to your home once reconstruction and restoration are finished.
Contents Restoration FAQs
What Does Contents Restoration Entail?
Contents restoration involves assessing, and evaluating what items are damaged, removing them to an off-site location, inventory and documentation of tools, technologies and cleaners used, and safeguarding their return to your home or office. The main steps of the contents restoration process remain the same no matter what items are being restored, but the labor and length of time will vary.
How Long Does Contents Restoration Take?
Contents restoration takes skill, patience, and experience. We know your items are important to you, and getting them back into your home or business in their pre-incident state is our utmost goal. We work with your insurance company and any local authorities to ensure our contents restoration process commences as soon as possible following a disaster. Keep in mind that antiques and artwork may take longer to restore than electronic items and fabric furniture. Furthermore, if the damage was severe, it may increase the time it takes to restore the contents of your home or office.
How Much Does Contents Restoration Cost?
The amount you will pay for contents restoration depends on the number of items, the extent of the damage, and whether your damaged items will be covered by insurance. If you suffer a flood and have separate flood insurance, your items will be covered by your policy. However, the repair and replacement of flood-damaged items are not covered under your general policy. If the damage to your items resulted from your failure to maintain your home or business, the cost to repair may fall only to you.

HRS Restoration Services – Denver
When disaster strikes, HRS’s 24 hour restoration services are here for your emergency cleaning and professional restoration needs. In addition to water extraction and water damage restoration, HRS offers the following emergency restoration services:
Water Extraction & Water Damage Restoration
Discovering water damage in your home or business—whether from a flood, a dishwasher malfunction, or a sewer backup—can feel devastating. And it can be a serious problem if not dealt with properly. In addition to causing damage, water can also spread contaminants that may lead to disease. A quick response to water intrusion is imperative due to the invasive properties of moisture:
- Within minutes, moisture-sensitive surfaces swell and disfigure. Paper goods (books, documents, pictures) can be ruined and stains from furniture start to appear on carpeting, which can be permanent.
- Within hours, drywall softens and warps, and wooden furniture can be permanently damaged. If carpet becomes delaminated (the primary backing separates from the secondary backing), it can cause irreparable damage.
- Within days, fungi and bacteria begin to grow and spread. Foul odors start to permeate your property.
HRS’s IICRC certified clean-up crews are composed of expert technicians—including Master Water Restorers—who will ensure you receive the highest quality water removal and water clean-up services. Once the cause of the water emergency is mitigated and clean-up has been completed, our construction team can provide the building services you need—such as drywall, painting, flooring, electrical, and plumbing—to return your home or business to its original state.
Our local water restoration specialists are standing by 24/7/365 to help you through your water emergency!
Fire Damage & Restoration
A fire can be the most traumatic and devastating experience a home or business owner ever faces. In a best case scenario, it can cause minor smoke damage; in a worst case scenario, it can obliterate an entire structure. HRS will help you navigate these stressful circumstances and bring your property back to a safely inhabitable state.
The fire damage restoration professionals at HRS are available 24 hours a day! By carefully following our proven procedures, we ensure your property is brought back to the safe, comfortable space that existed before the fire damage and smoke damage. This begins with a property inspection to assess the level of structural damage and content damage. We will report our findings to you and answer any questions you may have so you are fully informed and understand what results can be reasonably expected.
In simple terms, returning your home or business to its pre-fire state consists of three general elements: structural damage restoration, content restoration and/or removal, smoke mitigation, and odor mitigation. Making sure your property is structurally sound is a priority. If there are stability issues, our professional restoration team can provide full construction services to rectify the situation. We will also remove any of your belongings that have been burned beyond repair, including items containing synthetic materials. Any items that are salvageable will be repaired and returned both to minimize cost to the home or business owner as well as to help lessen the anxiety of loss; unsafe items will be disposed of. Finally, our disaster clean-up team will remove all smoke residue, including the pervasive odor. Our IICRC certified Odor Control Technicians will use odor removal techniques include thermal fogging, high-level ozone deodorization, and hydroxyl deodorization.
Mold Inspection, Testing, & Remediation
No homeowner or business owner wants to hear that they have mold. Mold spreads quickly and can cause severe respiratory problems, especially in infants, children, the elderly, and those with health issues. Depending on the extent of the mold, a property can even be declared uninhabitable due to the threat it poses to the health of the occupants.
Mold occurs in damp areas and is often caused by water damage or flooding. Mold can also be the result of a current water leak or improper water leak clean-up from a previous issue. Mold can be present in carpet, wall interiors, floorboards, and ceilings, as well as easily spotted locations. HRS’s experts will determine the source of the mold, remove all traces of the mold, and repair or replace the damaged structures, ensuring the issue that caused the mold is remediated.
Due to the possible toxicity of the mold in your home or business, it’s important to have mold removal handled by professionals. Our mold remediation specialists are IICRC certified in Applied Microbial Remediation, ensuring all aspects of the mold abatement are handled safely.
Trauma clean-up and bio-cleaning is not a subject people give much thought to until they need the service. When dealing with a crime scene at your home or business, or with the aftermath of a fatality, the emotional toll can be overwhelming. HRS professionals can help ease the burden of the situation by eliminating all trace of the death or incident. This includes removing unsafe items and substances such as blood, other bodily fluids, and filth, all of which can contain biological hazards. Sanitizing a trauma situation involves eradicating microscopic particulates such as bacteria and viruses to ensure a clean and healthy space. HRS Disaster Restoration follows IIRC s540 standards, providing the highest industry standard of trauma and crime scene clean-up. Our highly trained technicians will decontaminate your property, working in coordination with fire departments and police to help you through this process as efficiently and quickly as possible.
Our bio-cleaning professionals also specialize in remediating hoarding situations. Hoarding can be dangerous because it can put those in the vicinity at risk of fire, poor sanitation, and even structural issues in their home or commercial property in extreme cases.
Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings, both residential and. It can be found in numerous construction materials, including concrete, asphalt, roof shingles, pipes, siding, wall board, floor tiles, joint compounds, adhesive, and insulation. The US banned the use of asbestos in the manufacturing of most materials in 1978, which is why we assume properties constructed before 1980 could have asbestos present. However, it’s important to note that in our increasingly global marketplace, many building materials are imported from abroad, and not all countries have the same stringent guidelines as the US. Because of this, it is possible to come across asbestos in newer structures, especially commercial buildings.
The hazardous nature of asbestos abatement calls for professional remediation to ensure safe removal and disposal. HRS will extract all asbestos from your property to bring it back to a safely inhabitable space. Once the asbestos remediation is complete, our restoration team can rebuild the affected areas.
Dealing with a disaster situation at a commercial property type requires an additional skill set. Unlike a residence, commercial buildings have employees and, often, patrons that are affected by an incident such as a water event or smoke damage. HRS will provide the necessary remediation services efficiently and discretely. Regardless of when the damage occurs—during business hours or in the middle of the night—HRS is available to remedy the situation. Water damage … storm damage … mold remediation … fire/smoke mitigation … HRS’s professional technicians are ready to bring your property back to its pre-disaster state.
Even well-maintained properties can experience the need for emergency restoration services. Whether you manage or own a hospital, school, apartment complex, office building, hotel, church, or retail establishment, HRS can handle your situation and our IICRC technicians can give you the peace of mind that your property will be professionally repaired.
