Disasters happen in homes all too often. In 2021 alone, the United States experienced an average of 17 natural disaster events. That doesn’t take into consideration things like fires or flooding from burst pipes and plumbing issues, which often require pack out services for your home goods.
Did you know that more than 250,000 homes in the US deal with burst pipes every single year? Up to 20% of insurance claims are directly related to water damage. Those are some pretty big numbers!
When a disaster happens in your home, there is a specific process to go through. You’ve got to call in a company that can help handle the cleanup and the restoration process.
The thing is, restoration companies don’t just restore. Many are there for you from the time the disaster happens until the restoration is complete. This includes a cleanup and pack out process that has to happen somewhere in between.
Dry 24 Water Restoration offers pack out services for restoration of your property and not just the walls and floors of your home.
What is Pack Out?
Pack out” is a term that refers to your personal property. When your home is damaged, the things inside your home are likely affected as well. Everything, including water, smoke, or fire can damage your personal property.
You don’t have to hire multiple companies to come in and take care of business. Choose one company that will help you restore your home or business and restore personal property as well.
That’s what Dry 24 Restoration offers. Our pack out services are an essential part of your restoration process, and we can help you with belongings as well as the home or business that was damaged.
How Does Pack Out Work?
The process for pack out includes packing up the items that can be salvaged, moving them to be restored, and then returning them to you in like-new condition.
Here is a quick summation of the complete process.
- We will walk through and inspect belongings with you, determining the extent of the damage.
- As we inspect, there may be some things that we let you know we can’t restore.
- We will thoroughly document items that we can restore to their prior condition.
- We pack out all items that need restoration and transport them to our facilities.
- Items that don’t need to be repaired but need to be moved for the restoration of the home or business can be loaded securely and moved while structural restoration occurs.
- We pack up and move everything with complete documentation and inspection. If cleaning immediately is necessary, we take this step as well.
- When we pack out and move items, we handle them securely and safely. They will have a specific location where we will restore them.
- When we complete restoration of the packed out items, we load all items are back up and return them to you.
Why is Pack Out Necessary?
When damage happens in your home, there can be a massive mess to take care of. Imagine a home that has experienced a fire. Restoring the home itself is going to take some detailed work.
Disasters also impact the items in your home. While you can move them around, it’s actually much easier to get them out of the way for the restoration of the home. It’s the same concept with other types of damage to the home.
Pack out not only clears the area for restoration, but it also takes care of cleaning and restoring each and every item available. It might be the only way to salvage something that’s important to you.
The pack out process is also a great way to assess the complete damage that happened from your disaster. You can document the non-restorable items as well as the items we pack out for restoration.
So the necessity is two-fold really:
- Get things out of the way for structural cleanup and restoration
- Restore and repair the personal belongings affected
What Can Be Retrieved & Restored By Pack Out?
Restoration after some sort of disaster ultimately falls into two primary categories. You have the structure itself, which falls under structural repair. Pretty much anything else involved or damaged can be considered for pack out. This includes furniture and personal belongings. If you want to get technical, we can retrieve anything. With that in mind, however, it’s possible that we won’t be able to fully restore every item. This will depend on the extent of the damage.
Here are some examples of what a pack out might involve:
- Home furniture
- Personal items
There are more things that could go on this list, but this should give you a general idea of what pack out covers.
