What is content management during Oakland fire restoration?
An Oakland home is made up of both structural items and unique contents. A house fire affects both at the same time. However, the restoration of these two aspects of your home is separate. The efficiency of a fire restoration in Oakland often relies upon how contents are managed. In some situations, the overall timespan of repair may be reduced by keeping contents on-site. These options are usually employed in minor to moderate conditions where the fire is contained to one or two rooms of the property, and the structure is sound. When there is significant structural damage, requiring reconstruction, SERVPRO technicians may opt to remove contents to allow better access to the parts of the structure in need of restoration. Content management is a priority during the scoping and assessment phase.
How are the pack-out procedures completed?
When a property suffers significant fire damage in Oakland, it is usually necessary to pack up the contents. It may seem overwhelming to relocate a home's worth of contents, but SERVPRO can enlist professional movers to transport items from home to a safe storage facility. Usually, a crew chief accompanied by two fire and smoke damage restoration technicians (FSRT) conducts a pack-out procedure. The crew chief is responsible for inventorying, documenting, and ensuring quality controls during a pack out. One technician sorts through salvageable and non-salvageable contents while the remaining technician packs up contents to move out. Your contents are insured during the move-out and storage procedure of fire restoration.
What are other factors essential to good content management?
- Ensuring a clear and clean workspace free from debris
-Identify non-salvageable items to remain on-site
- Use a packing and inventory station to maintain efficiency
Pack-out procedures can be traumatic. Contact SERVPRO of San Leandro at (510) 352-2480 for professional efficiency.
