Pack-Out and Content Restoration

By Luke Armstrong

Disaster doesn’t discriminate, and it doesn’t tend to give a forewarning.  Sometimes it doesn’t matter how far you’ve gone to protect your home, anything still can (and often does) happen!
Flood damageIf the damage is bad enough to cause structural damage, companies coming in to start repairs often offer the option of having everything removed in what’s known in the insurance industry as a pack-out.  They remove the contents of your home or office to another location for cleaning while the space itself is restored.  This is the first step in restoring your items to their best possible condition, and it should be done immediately after whatever water or fire damage has occurred.

Items that are often affected and need to be cleaned or restored include — but aren’t limited to:

* Artwork
* Documents
* Books
* Photographs
* VHS and DVD media
* Clothing
* Electronics (televisions, computers, stereos, etc.)
* Furniture
* Rugs
* Retail inventory
