Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

The Packout Process

2/25/2021 (Permalink)

Floods, fires, and storm damage to your home are stressful and devastating. It is not just the floor and walls that are damaged, it's also your furniture, your clothes, and your valuables. It is sometimes the sentimental items that mean the most to our customers.                                      

Pack-outs are a vital component to the mitigation work that our team can do. We arrive with production trailers full of packing materials, boxes, blankets, and other protective gear to keep the contents removed from your property safe through the travel to our nearby facility.

Salvageable vs. Unsalvageable:

Our packout process is begins with our team “packing out” your property’s contents to be temporarily relocated for the duration of the restoration process. When you have a disaster, one of the first things we do is send a team to sort and box your belongings. To ensure every item is accounted for, we scan and catalog every item into our system before placing them in labeled boxes. This process also ensures customers get all of their belongings back!

Unfortunately, some items—either due to the type of item or the amount of damage it sustained—aren't able to be saved by our team. These unsalvageable items are cataloged the same as all of the other belongings, but they are generally disposed of instead. However, before we take any such action, we always meet with you to review the unsalvageable items so you can make a final decision!

We know how important it is to save sentimental items. Our technicians work hard to ensure your belongings are treated with the respect they deserve, while working diligently to restore your property to it's preloss condition.

While much of the restoration work by our SERVPRO team can happen onsite, many individual contents require specialized attention, cleaning, and deodorization, that best occurs in our care.

Once your belongings are safely at our facility, they are moved to one of our many temperature-controlled storage pods where we will safely keep them until you are ready for your belongings to be packed back in your time.

If you have a disaster and need a team of local professionals, call SERVPRO of Piscataway today at (732) 752-4445!
