Packing for Restoration
When your belongings have been damaged by water, fire, mold, smoke, flood, or any other disaster, it takes a dedicated and experienced team to restore them back to their pre-disaster condition. After a disaster occurs, it is often a very emotional and confusing time for you and the whole family. We know how much it means to regain items that you thought have been destroyed forever.
Our highly trained, IICRC-certified technicians are detail-oriented and handle every single item cautiously and with the utmost care. We use only high quality equipment, safe and effective treatments, and the appropriate cleaning methods to restore most damaged contents to like-new condition. We provide restoration for all of your most important belongings, including valuables, artwork, rugs, furniture, electronics, garments, appliances, documents, and so much more. We have spent countless hours restoring irreplaceable items and keepsakes and have successfully recovered and restored contents for many distraught families.
We work with you and your adjuster to determine which contents can be restored, and which must be replaced. Your contents claim is actually covered under a separate section from the property claim of your policy, so we will help you prepare and submit your property insurance claim quickly to ensure a timely payout.
After an immediate phone assessment of your emergency, a restoration professional will be dispatched and on-site within 4 hours to assess the needs of your loss and prepare a restoration estimate. Upon coming to agreement on our services, we will schedule our technicians to take inventory of all the salvageable and non-salvageable contents and will then begin the content damage restoration process. Depending on how extensive the damage is to both your home and the contents and the safety of the environment, we will either perform the restoration on site or our team will carefully pack each item and transport them to our content restoration facility.
The techniques we use to restore your items back to their condition include cleaning, sanitizing, deodorizing, hand washing and drying, air drying, fixing, polishing, reupholstering, repainting, resurfacing, refinishing, drying, ultrasonic cleaning, and any and all appropriate techniques necessary that will get the job done right for you. After all of your items are restored and in working condition, we will then return them back to you with care and make every effort to put each item back in its right place so you can have your home back to normal again.
So whether it is just a few contents or a whole house full, we are here, dedicated, and ready to help you every step of the way.

Tips for Dealing With Content Damage
- Do NOT throw anything away until one of our professionals has inspected it to see if it can be restored. At first glance, some items may seem beyond repair, but you will be surprised for what our team can do for you.
- Be careful with fragile items to avoid damaging them any further before we can inspect them.
- If water damaged, remove what you can from the water and try to lay the items out to dry as best you can.
- When dealing with fire damage, use extreme caution in handling any of your contents and try to handle as little as possible until one of our experts can evaluate it.
