Pack Out Services Speed up Restoration
Imagine that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach as you survey the damage to your home and property after a disaster. Fire and water cleanup and restoration can take care of the building, but what about those precious items from everyday living – like grandma’s cedar hope chest, the upright piano passed down from generations, photos of the kids, or the rare books collected from your favorite uncle?
The contents inside a damaged building also need cleaning and restoration, and that’s one phase of the emergency pack out services offered by ServiceMaster Restore®. Each disaster is different, but in most cases, removing the inside contents from the damaged site to storage will help the entire restoration project get finished quicker.
Before the fire and water damage restoration starts, before the drying process and construction repairs can begin in your home, your furnishings and belongings need to be inventoried and assessed. You keep those critical things that are needed, like money, credit cards, personal medications, emergency supplies and perhaps a lockbox that you’ve kept important papers in. Then the ServiceMaster Restoration by All-Action team works with your insurance company to provide content packout services.
- Identifying recoverable items at the damage site
- Taking a specific inventory of the items using a trackable barcode system
- Professionally and carefully packing the items in storage boxes
- Transporting them to a safe and secure climate-controlled warehouse.
Pack out services don’t end there, however. At our warehouse, we begin the meticulous task of content restoration, which includes neutralizing odors and deep cleaning using a variety of methods safe for the specific item. Even expensive electronics can be safely cleaned and restored, once they arrive in ideal conditions. Further repairs are completed, getting your possessions to pre-damaged condition whenever possible. After that, the contents are again repacked in clean boxes for storage until the entire restoration project is complete.
Our goal is to relieve your stress, restore your belongings, and get your life back to normal. The final stage of packout services includes delivering your items back to the repaired home and getting everything set back up.
