Better Understanding The Pack-Out / Pack-In Process For Home Restorations

What you can see in this video is the ending stages of a common practice of our SERVPRO team in the event of unfavorable conditions or severe damages which could threaten the contents of a home. The service is known as packing out when we remove the contents from the affected area, and the video shows a little of the process of pack-ins, which bring those same contents back to the house and returns them to their original positions once the restoration work completes.

Pack-outs take the contents of your home that are at risk and move them to a nearby facility for storage. In some cases where these contents require restoration work of their own, this separation from the house allows for some concentrated cleaning and restoration work to occur on individual items, pieces of furniture, and other such objects. During this time that the items from your home get stored nearby, our team works to restore the affected areas of your home with damages from the recent incident.

Once the restoration work has completed or is very close to completion, our SERVPRO technicians are ready to bring these removed items back into your home and return them to their original locations. As you can see from the short video, great care is taken to not only return the items where they once were but also to ensure that they look their best for the final presentation of the completed project.

This process involves a lot of patience and some planning, but it is a necessary step to ensure that much of the contents of your home do not get irreparably damaged by the conditions of the house following a disaster or amid an emergency.

Ultimately, this pack-out / pack-in procedure is just a small piece of the restoration process that your home undergoes under our care. It does serve to show how committed we are as a company to your satisfaction, and that is why when you face an emergency of your own, you should think of SERVPRO of Northwest Little Rock.
