Your home or commercial facility contains many of your most valuable possessions. SERVPRO of Savannah understands the trauma that follows a loss. When fire damage takes control of your life, we help you take it back.

Some of our Contents services include:

Inventory – One of the first priorities in fire restoration is to complete an accurate inventory to help ensure you can properly account for all your belongings. Your SERVPRO of Savannah technician can provide a detailed room-by-room inventory of contents suitable for filing insurance claims and relieving you of this often stressful and time consuming process.

Move Outs – When the structure has suffered extensive damage, the cleanup and restoration process may need to be facilitated by relocating the contents for cleaning, deodorization and storage while structural repairs are being completed. A professional moving crew can carefully pack and move the entire contents of your home or business.

Contents Cleaning – All of the restorable contents in affected areas will be professionally cleaned and deodorized.  SERVPRO of Savannah technicians carefully inspect and test fabrics in the structure to determine which cleaning methods are most appropriate. SERVPRO of Savannah can provide wet or dry cleaning.

The SERVPRO Duct Cleaning Process

9/20/2019 (Permalink)

The SERVPRO Duct Cleaning Process:

  • The process begins by using patented equipment including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct's shape an diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before vacuuming begins.
  • Next, a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a 16-gallon container.
  • Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97 percent of particles in the airstream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the environment clean.
  • As an optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor to microbial concerns.
  • Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.

Duct cleaning may not always be necessary. SERVPRO will inspect your HVAC system and ductwork and make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This inspection can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your HVAC system and ductwork.

In some circumstances, such as after fire, smoke or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. In these cases, SERVPRO of Savannah can often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.

Ice Cream truck

Ice cream is not just for kids.  Grown ups love ice cream too.  Here at SERVPRO of Savannah, we love to find ways to put a smile on the faces of others.   When the Savannah heat feels as hot as fire, nothing is better than hearing the Ice Cream Truck pulling into your neighborhood.  We brought Jenni's Treats on the Street Ice Cream Truck around to some of our Insurance offices during the heat of the summer.  Sometimes the hardest part is making the decision of which ice cream is their favorite that day.   This is just one small way to make their day a little better.  Ice Cream Truck has been a tradition for several years and our office looks forward to it every summer.
