    Content Recovery / Restoration FAQs

    What items will you keep in your possession during our content restoration process?

    Pets and valuables should be kept safe with you during our restoration process. You should bring cash, medications, jewelry, and other important items with you. Be sure to take any flammable materials, firearms, ammunition, gasoline cans, etc., with you as well.

    How should you keep track of items that cannot be restored?

    We recommend you make a list of items (including food items), deemed unsalvageable, make a copy for your insurance policy and keep one for yourself.

    Should you be out of the property during the recovery process?

    The decision ultimately lies with you, but you should consider these factors when deciding whether or not to move out of your house temporarily. During our recovery process, there may be uncomfortable noise from our equipment, and odors from our restoration equipment. If you choose to leave, we suggest you redirect the delivery of mail and other items to your new address. Also, notify utility companies, such as phone, electric, water, gas, etc., of your temporary move and request a suspension of your services for its duration.

    Will you have access to your possessions while they are put in storage?

    Yes, with advance notice we will be happy to schedule a time for a restoration technician to come out and give you access to your belongings. A service fee may apply in certain cases.

    What is the process for special items like artwork, heirlooms, etc?

    Our specialists can assist you in restoring valuable items such as, antiques, art, or collectibles. For items that need some special attention, we can also help you locate a qualified restorer while working with your insurance claims representative.
