What is the process of content restoration?

A wet home affects both the structure and the contents, so Frederick homeowners use professional services to recover them. Often items in the house need moving, either to an off-site storage warehouse or to an unaffected room where cleaning or drying can occur separately. The process of moving content is challenging without a proven content management solution. SERVPRO technicians record information in a digital inventory that can be revisited throughout the service and after to provide a transparent and accountable system for managing your possessions.

What are the challenges of content management?

- Items that could break during transit

- Storage and tracking of contents throughout the restoration procedure

- Lack of detail and documentation of the condition of things in the home

How does content management affect restoration?

There are many aspects where content management and water damage restoration in your Frederick home overlap. The ability to assess whether items are salvageable or non-salvageable, for example, focuses on contents but can also affect the overall time-frame of restoration. SERVPRO takes time to document and inspect items to ensure that they are given the correct treatment in the home. We frequently use professional movers when large amounts of content need storing in a separate warehouse, and our warehouses are highly organized to ensure items do not get lost.

What are the solutions to content management issues?

- Photographing and videoing the condition of contents before packing

- Efficiently cleaning, packing, and loading items when off-site storage is necessary

- Organizing warehouse space and storage ahead of time to ensure efficient delivery of contents

Protecting your contents is as valuable as drying your home. Contact SERVPRO of Frederick County at (301) 662-1747 today.
