The damage that a fire or flood can have on the structure of your home is significant. However, the worst losses often aren’t your walls or carpets. They are your personal possessions that have great value to you. We at All About Contents in the Dallas, Georgia area understand how much your personal items mean to you. To help you feel more at ease, we want you to understand the contents cleaning process and how it works.
Step 1: Packing Up Your Items
The first step includes taking an initial evaluation of the contents of your home. During this process, we will determine which items are salvageable and which are not. You will be part of this process. Once these determinations have been made, we will photograph all of your possessions that we will be working on so we have before and after documentation of them. Then, we will create an inventory of everything we will be taking back to work on, securely pack up your contents, and take them back to our facility.
Step 2: Transporting Your Items To Our Facility
When we first pack up the items, we are careful to not cross-contaminate any items. Your items are moved and packed with caution so that no further damage is done to them. We will place your items securely into moving trucks to be shipped out to our contents cleaning facility. We then make sure to safely store them in our facility so we can begin the cleaning process as soon as possible.
Step 3: Contents Cleaning
At the contents cleaning facility, your possessions will be stored until they are cleaned. When it’s their time to be cleaned, boxes will be opened one by one. Your contents will be inspected by our cleaning specialists who will determine the safest and most effective way to clean them. They do this based on the degree and type of damage to your possessions. As they clean your contents, they’ll carefully re-pack them into new boxes with fresh packing paper and bubble wrap. Most of your contents will be cleaned in this way. Larger furniture items will go through a similar process. However, certain items like electronics will go through special processes to ensure they are dried, cleaned, and restored correctly.
Step 4: Bringing Your Items Back To You
Once all of your possessions have been cleaned and you are ready for them, we will load them back onto our trucks to bring them back to you. As they bring your contents back, our team will carefully go over each point on the inventory to ensure that all of your possessions are there. This also gives you the opportunity to inspect the state of your contents while we are there to make sure that everything is there and to your satisfaction.
If a fire does happen in your home, we hope the communication of the contents cleaning process makes it easier for you to get through. It can be difficult to trust someone else with your valuable possessions, but at All About Contents in Dallas, Georgia we guarantee only the best quality service and cleaning available.
