The Packout:

A crew will come in and box up your home, room by room, using a careful labeling system.

The Cleaning:

While the cleaning process varies depending on the item, you can rest assured that only proven effective techniques are used that won’t do further damage to your items.

If there is a noticeable odor, they will be placed in a special room with equipment that has the ability to remove that odor.

There are also proven processes in place to restore expensive electronics like computers and even restore meaningful items full of sentimental value like photos or books.

The Storage:

Depending on the severity of the fire, your contents may need to be stored at our facility while your property is restored. Again, rest assured your items have been carefully inventoried and will be stored in a climate-controlled environment until your home is livable again.

Returning Items:

This has to be the most exciting part of the process.  Just as crews carefully boxed up items by room, the boxes will be strategically returned to those rooms for you, rugs placed back in their original places, and window treatments rehung.
