Restoration and What We Mean When We Say "Like it never even happened."
If you find water, fire or mold damage to your property, you should call a restoration company for help. But maybe you don't quite know what a restoration service does. And as you search and compare, you find that SERVPRO of North Hollywood claims to restore your property "Like it never even happened." But what does that claim really mean?
At its simplest, it means we restore your home or business to its preloss condition. Here's how:
Yes, we extract water and dry out water damaged ceilings, carpets and furniture. We clean and deodorize smoke and soot from fire damaged walls. We remove mold from attics and crawl spaces etc. We even clean dangerous stuff that no one really wants to clean.
This is all part of the cleanup and remediation process. In other words, we remove the source of the problem to mitigate further damage to your property. As long as water is left to soak, soot corrode or mold to fester, the damage may grow worse over time.
But we're not done.
The water is dry. We wiped away the soot and removed the mold. Done, right? Nope. SERVPRO of North Hollywood is a licensed contractor with the resources to help you rebuild. Because what comes next is just as important: restoration.
By definition, restoration means "a return of something to a former, original, normal, or unimpaired condition." In other words, the end result is that anyone who enters your home or business would be hard-pressed to know there was damage. From patching and repainting walls to rebuilding entire rooms, we'll restore your property to its preloss condition... or better.
But sometimes mere words or a definition fail to do this process justice. The photo accompanying this post is a perfect example. On the left, you can see the smoke and soot damage covering everything: ceiling, cabinets, walls and more. On the right, we've removed the fire damaged property and replaced it with shiny fixtures, counters, cabinets and paint.
Of course, not every water, fire or mold disaster requires such a wholesale overhaul. But when you call SERVPRO of North Hollywood, you can feel secure knowing that when we say "Like it never even happened," we mean it!
