Home Contents Emergency Cleaning and Restoration
After a disaster strikes, your interior or structure are not the only things that require remediation. Your personal belongings need immediate attention, too.
Fire, smoke, water, and mold all pose a danger to your possessions and the health of your household. Our contents services — home contents pack-out and residential contents cleaning — are designed to protect your belongings, mitigate damage, and restore items to like-new condition.
Why Content Restoration?
Fires and floods cause obvious, immediate damage to structures and properties — but they may also lead to less obvious, secondary damage. Aftereffects of a disaster such as smoke, soot, and mold may pose health dangers and reduce the useful life of your belongings. Contents cleaning restoration lets you continue to enjoy your prized possessions.
For example, after a fire, your home and possessions are likely to have smoke and water damage. Without proper remediation, water from firefighting efforts may quickly lead to mold growth.
Smoke damage is much more than odors or discoloration — it’s the deposition of toxic materials. Fires don’t necessarily burn cleanly, especially in a home. Microscopic materials left over by a fire may threaten the health of people in your household, especially those who are very young, old, or immunocompromised.

Frequently Asked Questions about Residential Contents Restoration
Can you restore my valuable/meaningful/treasured/heirloom item?
Our restoration services are wide and varied. Contact your local Rainbow Restoration to learn about specific items.
What can I do to ease the restoration process?
One of the simplest things you can do to begin the recovery process is to create a home inventory beforehand. No one likes to think a disaster may happen, but occasionally, they do. Just like stocking up on food, water, and toilet paper to prepare for certain crises, a home inventory would be invaluable in the possible event of a fire or flood. When dealing with insurance claims, it saves time and can result in more accurate reimbursements for your possessions. Learn how to create your own home inventory now.
Are there things that can’t be cleaned or restored?
Our teams understand what you must be going through, and will do their best to save and restore your valued possessions. However, sometimes the damage is too great, and sometimes the damaged item isn’t a good candidate for restoration. Throughout the process, we will be honest and upfront about what you can expect from our services.
