In some cases, building contents must be moved out of the damaged site and stored elsewhere until restoration work is completed. Often called a “pack-out,” this procedure involves moving items (furniture, electronics, clothing, small contents, etc.) and storing them in an off-site environmentally controlled facility. Westfair Restoration Services, Inc. can help you cater for this need.
There are a number of reasons for moving items off the premises:
If the structure itself has sustained heavy damage but the contents are essentially cleanable, the contents are moved so that building reconstruction can proceed more easily (this also prevents damage to contents from the reconstruction process itself).
Trained restoration professionals visit the site and assess damages.Some contents may be heavily damaged by water or smoke and require extensive restoration off premises (Westfair
Restoration Services, Inc. makes every effort to clean general contents such as small furniture, paintings, books and decorative accessories on the premises – contents are moved off site only when absolutely necessary).
We also have the ability to pack contents and move the items into a Pod which can be delivered and left on the property.
If moving and storage are necessary, Westfair Restoration Services will inventory, wrap, and box every item. Once restoration has been completed, we will carefully return all furnishings to their original location.
Important Note: In any case of water, smoke or fire damage, immediate attention to cleaning and restoration is critical to minimize property loss.
