Removing Contents Supports Water Mitigation Efforts

Leaks and flooding devastate more than the structures and fixtures inside your home. A wealth of other household goods and personal possessions share the chance of ruin through fluid saturation and excess humidity. Water damage professionals certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) master strategies to restore a house’s structure and contents. AdvantaClean of Westchester, Rockland and Stamford frequently suggests using our pack-out and inventory service to help accomplish these goals.

The Point of Pack-Out Services

Contents water mitigation in White Plains requires strategies that halt the damage caused by clean or dirty fluids to a wide range of articles. Removing non-attached yet affected items from the wet structure solves many challenges mitigation technicians from AdvantaClean of Westchester, Rockland and Stamford face.

  • Packing out water-damaged areas of soaked items as an initial intervention, incredibly bulky and heavy furnishings, streamlines mitigation activities such as extraction, drying, and cleaning operations for the structure’s building materials.

  • Removing water-saturated porous contents reduces the damaged building’s workspace humidity levels, speeding drying times and stopping staining and re-wetting dried structures from dripping padding and fabrics.

  • Setting aside wet contents either at a dry staging space within the White Plaines house or AdvantaClean of Westchester, Rockland and Stamford’s production facility permits detailed inventorying, evaluation, and contents-specific water mitigation, remediation, and restoration by IICRC-trained content restoration technicians. 

  • Securing the inventory of eventually cleaned, dried, disinfected, and deodorized contents in a climate-controlled setting supports appropriate claims decisions by your insurance carrier and keeps items safe until they can return to the water-damaged home after in-home water mitigation, remediation, and restoration efforts complete. 

Pack-Out Steps

  • Retrieval

Our team retrieves the wet and otherwise damaged contents for you, boxing loose items up and moving larger articles with whatever effort is needed to remove them from the structure. If possible, pictures taken during the pack-out ultimately help technicians return things to their proper places at the project’s end.  

  • Evaluation and Restoration

  • Technicians sort and inventory the packed-out items, noting the articles’ condition and working with you to prioritize which things receive accelerated evaluation and interventions. 

  • Non-porous household goods like dishes, pots and pans, toys, and plastic items and furniture receive appropriate cleaning and drying, 

  • Porous and padded furnishings can benefit from accelerated drying in smaller, contained rooms or polyethylene “pods” after examination for cleaning needs. 

  • We route electronic devices, books and papers, artwork, and textiles (floor and window coverings, clothing and linens, stuffed animals) to experts, either in-house or subcontractors, who received training in specific water mitigation and drying tasks.

  • Organization and Storage

Periodically, for the pack-out operations, we create and edit inventories to organize your property. Once our team finishes all water mitigation, cleaning, and restoration for the packed-out items, the crew inventory the lots for a final time and move them to storage. 

  • Pack-Back

When your White Plains house is ready to reunite with its contents, we schedule a pack-back. The items return to fill your property, from practical tools of day-to-day living to treasured heirlooms and other articles that carry priceless memories for you and your family. Your input and our documentation ensure the correct placement of articles.
