Imagine, for a moment, that the worst has occurred and disaster has struck your home; flood, fire, whatever you can think of. Fortunately for you, your home is insured against that type of disaster. Your insurance company, after assessing the damage, calls in a restoration company to begin renovation on your damaged home. Sure, a contractor can rebuild the home itself, but what happens to the damaged goods inside? “Contents restoration” is the term that refers to the process of removing, restoring and replacing the damaged goods inside your home. This is how they do it.
The first, obvious step is to remove all of the items to be restored from the home. These items are then catalogued and stored safely off-site, where they are assessed for service.
Repair or Replace?
The restoration company only has a certain amount of resources to use on items from the home. Some inexpensive items, such as a plastic lawn chair, might be more easily and cheaply replaced than more substantial items.
Restore and Refinish
After items are assessed, the real work begins. Items are cleaned of stains and odor, whether they came from water, mold, fire, or smoke. Wooden furniture items are refinished, and fabric furniture items are sometimes reupholstered. Special techniques might be used for artwork, electronics, or other specialty items.
Household items are usually finished before home repairs are complete. The contents restoration service will then return the restored items into their storage facilities until home repairs are complete.
The Return Journey
Once the home is habitable again, the restoration team goes to work taking all the restored items out of storage and moving them back into the home. Items are set up for the homeowners to move back in.
Content with Restoration
Contents restoration is, simply put, the restoration of the contents of your home. If disaster strikes, and your property is damaged, partner with your insurance company to find the contractor and content restoration company that’s right for you. Many restoration companies, such as Superior Restoration, are capable of providing both services to clients affected by disaster. Regardless of what path you take, content restoration helps get your life back on track.
