Most buildings have a high value of contents which are always to be considered after a disaster has occurred. As a restoration contractor, the mitigation and restoration of these contents is always a priority to our emergency response teams. Contents left unattended after a fire can become non-salvageable if untreated. Water damaged contents can swell, disfigure and grow mold if they are not dried out. Electronic items can corrode leaving them vulnerable, permanently damaged, and even a potential fire risk. Most electronic items can be salvaged when dried properly. Furniture can swell, delaminate, and cause permanent staining to carpets and flooring if left untreated. Clothing can transfer dyes and stain other garments and flooring if left untreated. In the case of fire and smoke damage most white plastic materials will turn yellow when smoke, soot, and water are combined. This combination often creates an acid, which will permanently damage the finish and corrode the metallic properties of appliances. Perishable items, like canned and packages of foods become contaminated and should be considered non-salvageable. Contents that are non-salvageable will be labelled as such, logged, and disposed of to eliminate the possibility of potentially harmful consumption. Sentimental items like timeless photographs can be salvaged. Important documents can be secured in a freezer dryer so that fungi's (molds) are unable to destroy them. Valuable silver wear and china can be easily restored if dealt with promptly; like a building structure, contents can be saved to be cherished if restored promptly after a disaster has occurred.
