What to Expect When SERVPRO Recommends a Pack Out After Flood Damage in Jacksonville

8/19/2018 (Permalink)

If your home is facing a flooding scenario, contact SERVPRO to go over the many services offered, which can include pack-outs.

Our Certified Technicians Focus on Drying Out Your Home and Possessions After Flooding


Severe storms and significant plumbing or appliance fails can fill the lower levels of your Jacksonville home with water. Recovery from this event requires attention to both the structural damage affecting your home and the harm done to furnishings, household goods, and personal possessions. Our on-site water removal and drying technicians are rivaled only by our production facility employees in the skills and experience needed to return both your home and your belongings to preloss condition.

After torrential rains and high winds combine to inflict flood damage to your Jacksonville dwelling, the interior and exterior of your home need considerable attention. We need access to areas where recesses might hide water, and our equipment requires cleared and open set up spaces to achieve the best results. When our crew chief assesses the flood damage a pack out of movable items can be recommended as part of the plan. Our crews are well-trained in industry best practices about inventorying, preparing, protecting, and moving the non-structural property articles to a secure and dry location.

At your home, SERVPRO crew members systematically work to remove water, sanitize flooded surfaces, and achieve structural drying goals on a large, room by room scale. Any furniture and personal property left in the flooded locations can inhibit our efforts. If not packed out the furnishings and other articles also fail to receive the specialized care they need to recover their fresh clean, and dry characteristics. Our production space can be configured to create a series of efficient mini drying and cleaning spaces for the packed out inventory, allowing a customizable approach to the many pieces of property soaked by the flood waters.

SERVPRO employees take the opportunity to evaluate the packed out property, assessing for damage and proposing strategies to clean and dry the items. We have water extraction equipment and laundry facilities available to manage the effects of flooding on everything from your living room furniture suite to window coverings to clothing to papers and books, and more. The employees working on the pack out inventory document the damage for your insurance company and employ cutting-edge technologies to transform belongings you believe are ruined back to their full function and appearance. For example, we have access off-site to resources like freeze-drying methods to restore soaked papers, books, and pictures and technicians trained in electronics drying and restoration.

SERVPRO of Arlington is proud to offer a broad range of flood damage solutions for all types of property. Explore the benefits of a pack out when you consult with our project managers after calling our emergency line at  (904) 721-2230.
