Wooden Vaults

SERVPRO Wooden Vault Storage

Here at SERVPRO we use wooden vaults to store customers belongings while they wait for their home to be restored. After fire, smoke, or water damage we clean and deodorize the items and store them using a barcode system. Each item is assigned a barcode and scanned into our system so if a particular item is ever needed from our vault during the restoration process, we will know exactly which vault it is located in and can get it to the customer in a timely manner. Each vault is cleaned between usage and kept in our climate controlled and preventative pest control sprayed warehouse.

The effects of Fire in Wichita, KS Home

Often the first image that comes to mind for fire damage is the scorched and charred remnants of the conflagrations wrath. While those are the main components of fire restoration water damage and possible mold growth are secondary concerns which, if not checked, can become a huge issue. In the picture the drywall collapsed due to the water used to put out the fire. Which in turn dropped sooty odorous insulation throughout the kitchen.

Content cleaning in process progress picture in Wichita, KS

One of our technicians was very proud of their work and wanted to share it on our website. In the photo the antique sugar can on the left has been cleaned and the can on the right has not yet been cleaned. The soot on these cans is very sticky and it will take multiple passes to make the can on the right shine like the one on the left but we get that work done!

The Difference a Fire Door Makes!

This picture really illustrates how important being prepared for a disaster is but also how effective fire doors are. In the first pic with the door closed you can see some soot on top of the door but not much else damage. In the second photo you can see the devastation from a fire. Fire doors aren't always this effective but in this instance you can be sure that the owner of the building was glad they installed it!

Unsecured Structure in Wichita, KS

This is our crew working after hours to box up the contents of people whose apartments were left impossible to secure following a fire. We received the call after what was already a pretty tough day of work here at SERVPRO but everyone pitched in, including our owners, to safely pack, transport and store all the contents from 3 separate apartments in 3 separate vaults back at our building by the end of the evening.
