Contents – Storage and Manipulation Services

Once a home or business have been damaged by either Fire, Water, Smoke or even Mold, the process of mitigation and cleaning can’t take place until the home or businesses contents have been removed in the affected areas. This process in the restoration industry is called “Contents Manipulation and Storage”. This process enables a cleared worksite for the following:

  • Remediation –The reversing or stopping of environmental damage like mold growth.
  • Mitigation – Which may include the demolition and removal of damaged materials, IE: burned, water damaged or mold infested walls, ceilings or other adversely  affected materials close to the immediate work areas.
  • Restoration – The entire construction phase of the rebuilding process.

Contents are separated into three (3) categories; Damaged, Restorable or Safe to Store.

The determination of whether specific contents are damaged or restorable will be the decision of our on-site supervisor and the customer. The decision of salvageability or not will always be discussed with the customer and the final decision of the customer.

If specific contents that have suffered damage and are determined salvageable, then steps will be taken to save the item. Whether an item has been exposed to Fire, Water, Smoke or Mold a cleaning process will be required. All cleaning is conducted with eco-friendly cleansers with the utmost professional care to refresh all items to their pre-loss condition. Once the necessary cleaning has been completed, all items are then stored.

Whether items require cleaning or not, all items are inventoried and stored in climate controlled secured remote warehouses or mutually agreed upon onsite storage facilities. Most cleaning, transportation and storage fees are paid for through insurance claims and typically not out of pocket for the customer. Contact your insurance provider for more information.

Once the restoration and rebuilding of your property is complete, a mutually agreed schedule is made to have our staff deliver all contents to your property and placed back to its original location via our inventory specialists. Vanguard has been a part of helping homeowners and businesses alike to get their lives back, and contents is just one integral part of that.
