Sometimes Its Better To Restore Than Replace
Regardless of the size, a fire in one room can damage belongings throughout an entire home. Personal belongings are treasures of life representing hard work and accomplishment. Photographs, books and other life momentos have a value that cannot be measured. When confronted with a fire loss, we at SERVPRO of Cincinnati East understand the concerns about losing such treasures and about the expense of trying to replace them.
