Many restoration projects require an inventory of your contents and furnishings. These are packed and safely transported to our climate-controlled warehouse for cleaning, restoration, re-packing and storage until we fully restore your facility. At ServiceMaster Professional Clean, we assure you that our Professional Cleaning Restoration technicians are trained to treat your possessions with the utmost care.

  1. Sign an authorization form
  2. Identify your immediate need for items (i.e., emergency clothing, etc.) These items may need to be cleaned quickly for your use.
  3. Identify items to keep in your possession.
  4. Assist with “restore versus replace” decisions, especially regarding valuables, family heirlooms or sentimental items.
  5. Be available on site for pack out and for re-delivery of your possessions.
