Content Pack Outs are a very helpful thing that a lot of reconstruction companies tend to do. What this means is that in case a situation like a fire happens and they are called in, the company will remove any and all materials in the home that have any chances of being undamaged. What this does is prevent any further problems and protecting you from added costs to take care of once you start building your home up again.
Why use pack outs:
When the restoration company will take the furniture out, they will make sure that it is taken care of by having it cleaned out and dried up. This way, once your home is claimed safe and you want to move back in, you can simply use it again. If they don’t do this, the underlying smoke residue and soot from the fire can still damage the furniture even after the fire is put out. There may even be water damages which can cause severe harm and loss of items.
Using an inventory:
Your restoration team will also make an inventory of all of the items in your home, the ones that have been damaged, and the ones that can be repaired. If you would like them to make repairs, you can also request them to make an inventory of required repairs. They then have it packed and cleaned, preventing further damages and returning them to you as soon as possible, to make sure you are happy with the result. If your home is still unsafe, the items will remain with the company until the home gets the A-Okay.
Boarding up of the items:
If you worry about the security of your items, you can ask the company to secure it from trespassers and thieves by having it boarded up. The home can also be boarded up to prevent any kind of robbery if you want to have it kept like that for security purposes.
Cleaning out your clothes:
One thing that you will need, especially if the home is unsafe and you can’t enter in, is your clothes. If you have your items packed out, you can actually get some help on this. You can request your restoration company to provide you with clothes on an emergency basis, so they will take care of restoring your clothes and removing the smoke and soot off them as a priority. Of course the time it takes for them to do this depends on the degree of damages.
Calling up a restoration company will make your awful experience with the fire and its damages a little bit better. If you feel overwhelmed at all of the work that needs to be done and need help, a restoration team is exactly what you need. Not only will they help you out by providing their services, but they’ll also make it a priority to make the experience as easy as possible for you.
