Plantation Owners Stay, Pack-Outs of Possessions by SERVPRO Can Salvage More and Cost Less After a Fire Loss
Understanding How Move-Outs Work during Fire Damage Restoration in Plantation
Though we strive to offer fire damage restoration services while the customer's contents are at the site, some situations may force us to recommend move-outs. It means we have to move the items to a remote location for the restoration process to take place smoothly. Move-outs are labor intensive since we have to move, pack, unpack, clean, repack, and move the contents back. We have to come up with a detailed inventory and be careful to avoid breakage when performing such services in Plantation.
Let us start by looking at some of the reasons as to why move-outs may be necessary during fire damage restoration in Plantation. Some contents may suffer additional damage if the cleanup and restoration work start while they are still in position. For instance, if the flooring or roof is severely damaged, the structure may be unsafe and force us to remove furniture from the house. Another instance is when the building is saturated with water, and the resulting high humidity is likely to cause avoidable damage to expensive upholstery and artwork.
It is important to note that not all fire damage restoration jobs require move-outs and we avoid them as much as we can when we consider them to be unnecessary. We enhance good relations with customer and adjusters. Remember, a damaging fire incident brings along many losses, so avoiding the additional expenses can be appreciated by both the adjusters and clients. We always look for ways of minimizing the number of times we handle your items to avoid breakages. If we have to perform them, then we must know what you consider to be most important.
We have a system known as the Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) that helps us to track all your items during a move-out. We tag each item and give it a unique serial number. The CCIS makes it possible for us to categorize contents as restorable, non-restorable, and questionable items.
