Moving & Storage

Moving & Storage

In cases of severe damage from fire, water, mold, etc., an insured's contents must be moved from the affected site and stored elsewhere until restoration work is completed. Often referred to as a "packout", the procedure is similar to a household or office move with one major exception - only restorable or salvageable items are moved. There are a number of reasons for moving items off the premises:

  • If the structure itself has sustained heavy damage but the contents are essentially unharmed, the contents are moved so that the building cleaning and reconstruction can proceed with greater ease. This also prevents damage to the contents from the restoration process itself.
  • Moving contents from an extremely wet building can aid in the structural drying process. Additionally, removing the items from a damp, humid environment decreases the likelihood of their developing mold-related damage.
  • If the structure is not secure, contents are moved to minimize additional losses from vandalism, theft, and/or weather-related incidences.
  • Some contents may be so heavily damaged by water or smoke that they require extensive restoration off-site. Contents are moved only when absolutely necessary; otherwise, Crystal Restoration makes every effort to clean general content items on the premises, such as small furniture, paintings, books and decorative accessories.

If the contents still retain a strong odor after cleaning, they are moved to the ozone chamber at our warehouse for neutralization and deodorization.

If moving and storage are necessary, Crystal Restoration's crew members will clean, inventory, wrap, box and tag every item. Once restoration has been completed, we will carefully return all items to their original location.

Important Note: In any case of water, fire or smoke damage, immediate attention to cleaning and restoration is critical in order to minimize both claim costs and property loss.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I wanted to let you know how happy my family and I are with your recommendation of Crystal Remediation! We called you early on New Year’s Eve day explaining what had happened in our home. You recommended Crystal and said you would have them at the house by 1:30. Really, I thought. 1:30 on NYE? I honestly figured it would be Tuesday after the holiday before anyone would be out. But lo and behold, at 1:30 PM on Sunday, there was Steve and his crew from Crystal at the door. Led by Steve, these men were courteous, kind and genuinely concerned for our well being. Steve immediately set out assessing the damage. His crew stayed until nearly 5pm, setting up the giant dehumidifier and fans throughout the house and said they would be back first thing Tuesday morning to “clean things up”. I put that in quotes because, while the house was a disaster because of the flood, they made it clean and livable! On behalf of my entire family, Thank you.

We finally finished all the repairs at my brother's house from the damage from the experience!! As I was thinking back at everything, I just wanted to express my thanks for all that you did to help with this project. You were so kind and supportive throughout the entire water remediation process. Crystal Restoration did a fantastic job! I appreciated your reassurance that everything would be taken care of properly, and it was. I was very impressed with you and Crystal Restoration and will highly recommend the company to neighbors in Harbor View. Thanks again for everything.

I am writing to you because I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the cleaning job Mark did for me. From the moment he stepped into my house for the first appointment I felt very comfortable. He was very professional, kind and sympathetic. He took the time to explain everything and answer al of my questions. Additionally, he was reliable and always answered my phone calls promptly! He and his staff did a beautiful job, and I could not be happier with the results!
Karen Mancuso, home owner
WE OFFICIALLY LOVE YOU ALL!!! We discovered several inches of water filling our entire basement! We've made many phone calls to address the many issues involved here. Our Public Adjuster, Allen Sabel, highly recommended that we call Crystal Restoration. We are so happy that we took his advice! Within maybe two hours of our initial call to your office, we were blessed to meet Mark. It was Mark's professionalism, mixed with his kind, calming personality, that made us know that Crystal Restoration was the way to go! We just called to cancel all the other restoration companies who gave us estimates! We're looking forward to meeting more of your crew tomorrow morning.
