Fire damage, including smoke and soot, effects not only the structure of your house but also your belongings. SERVPRO of Beverly/Cape Ann understands your family’s furniture, clothing, keepsakes, and other belongings make your house more than a structure; they make it home. Our team wants to help clean, protect and restore those special items after such a catastrophic event.

Content Restoration

SERVPRO of Beverly/Cape Ann specializes in restoring contents damaged by water, fire, or mold. Our expertise and “restore” versus “replace” mentality can help you save money while preserving precious keepsakes. We pretest your belongings to determine what items we can restore to pre-fire condition. We use several methods of cleaning your contents, including:

  • Dry Cleaning - Used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean prior to wet cleaning.
  • Wet Cleaning - An effective cleaning method for removing moderate to heavy residues.
  • Spray and Wipe -Effective for items that cannot withstand wet cleaning.
  • Foam Cleaning - Used for upholstery fabrics that might shrink or bleed if wet cleaned.
  • Abrasive Cleaning - Involves agitation of the surface being cleaned.
  • Immersion Cleaning - Contents are dipped into a bath of the cleaning product. 


If your home requires extensive restoration or cleaning due to fire damage, SERVPRO of Beverly/Cape Ann can conduct an organized, efficient move-out of the affected area. A move-out will provide several benefits, including:

  • Quicker remodeling
  • Protection of items from potential damage
  • Preservation from potential future damage

When the restoration process is completed, we collaborate with you to coordinate the move-in according to your needs and depending on your insurance coverage.

Electronic Cleanup

Fire-damaged electronics can present a serious hazard. Do not attempt to turn on or operate any electrical device that you suspect has been damaged by fire. Smoke residues can contain acids that will corrode metal surfaces. If the residues are not removed, corrosion causes electronic failure in the device rendering it useless. We will coordinate the restoration of your electronics, including:

  • Televisions
  • DVD players
  • Computers

The key to restoring electronics is taking prompt action to prevent further damage, they will be cleaned and inspected by a qualified electronics technician.

Depending on the type of documents and the level of fire, smoke, or soot damage, there are five options for the restoration of documents:

We can help ease the worry and confusion during the recovery process by offering our Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS), which provides a detailed and accurate list of your belongings.
