What Is a Pack Out and Why Is It Important

Have you been affected by fire, water damage or mold in your home or business? If you have, you will want to do a pack out of your contents before starting to restore the damaged area. What is a pack out and why is it important?

Let’s talk about what a pack out is and why it is important: A pack out consists of the packing up of all your contents in the affected areas of your home or business, such as artwork, electronics, furniture, and so on. It is important to have a prioritized list of what you would like them to seek out and remember, not everything will be salvageable. The contents of your pack out can be stored at an onsite or offsite climate-controlled storage location. We recommend keeping all valuable items on your person, such as jewelry, passports/important documents and guns to name a few. A pack out is important because it ensures no further damage to your property while the restoration process is being done.

Having technicians that know what they are doing will make the pack out a smooth and stress-free process. The certified Technicians at JW Home Care will take proper care of the contents being packed out, while also assisting with the restoration process. JW Home Care’s Technicians will carefully sort items into two categories: Salvageable and Unsalvageable.

Keep in mind that most Insurance companies will cover the cost of a pack out as well as the cost of offsite storage. Make sure to talk to your adjuster to confirm whether or not your policy provides such coverage.
