How Does a Move-Out Help With Flood Damage in Coram Properties?

A move-out is a good way to remove the contents from a home undergoing flood damage restoration for cleaning and disinfection in another location outside of the work-site.

When SERVPRO technicians perform a move out for a Coram home with flood damage, it is an exacting process, and the technicians keep it organized through detailed notes and photographs. After the completion of the necessary actions to return the home to its pre-flood condition, the technicians move the items back into the house to their original placements whenever possible. 

Items Cleaned Before Moving

SERVPRO technicians often save steps when conducting move-outs by cleaning items before carefully wrapping and packing. This eliminates the need to unpack at the storage location and clean on-site there. In this manner, the stored contents remain safely put away from the potential for damage until after the completion of restoration services on the property. 

Where Are Items Stored?

There are different alternatives for the storage of the contents from the flood loss affected areas. If only a portion of the property has impacts from floodwater, it is feasible to place contents in a coordinated manner in a secure location on-site such as a garage or another area of the home.  Another alternative storage solution is a secure storage pod. However, pods are not cost-efficient if there are numerous items needing placement, and there is a need for more than a single pod.

Types of Home Contents Generally Not Salvageable

During flood loss mitigation, SERVPRO technicians check each item for restoration potential through their proprietary cleaning and disinfection methods.  However, furnishings made from composite wood frequently do not react well to the absorption of water and are usually a loss. This type of item is not typically included in a move-out and with the permission of the property owner or adjuster, discarded as a flood loss item.
