When a fire or water damage requires the removal of contents, First General Members have the expertise. The moving of contents to a remote location for more specialized cleaning, or in some cases putting the contents in sealed containers, are normal occurrences during a loss. One major concern is always the ability to properly identify the contents and its condition at the time of loss. Our affiliates have the expertise and technology to handle all types of contents and will identify and provide a complete photo library of your contents and their conditions. This process ensures that all items are handled properly from the moment they leave your property, to the minute they are returned to you. First General Services Canada will provide you with a complete chain of custody whether contents are being repaired, cleaned or disposed of.
During restoration, you may have to accommodate temporary housing as this move will facilitate a quicker restoration of the damaged structure. Although this can be a stressful situation, there are many reasons for moving the contents. These reasons are:
- To enable a quicker remodeling process.
- To protect items from potential damage caused by remodeling.
- Contents may require extensive restoration.
- The structure may be damaged to such an extent that contents could also become damaged.
- To secure the property along with the contents.
- The structure may be saturated with so much water the contents could become damaged.
- Most importantly, for your safety.
The move-out process can be broken down into the following categories:
- Photo or video the job site.
- Performing an initial scope and job estimate.
- Packing, tagging, taking inventory and additional sorting of clean and claim items.
- Moving contents to a warehouse, cleaning, deodorizing, and repacking.
- Provide clients with a detailed list of contents.
- Move items back to client when required.
