Whats Next?

Because every project is different, there can sometimes be factors to consider that are not listed below. Depending on the amount of damage, job flow and timelines will vary. The following is a worksheet we hope will be helpful through this process.

Emergency Work Phase:

• Extraction and setting of drying equipment. Removal of necessary affected material, clean up and setting equipment
• All commercial properties, businesses or multi-living residential structures, as well as single-family homes built before 1985, will need to be tested for asbestos and lead
• Testing results will typically be received within 24-48 hours after samples were retrieved
• If Asbestos testing results are negative, we will remove the necessary affected material
• If testing results are positive, an abatement company will begin abatement
• Manipulation and/or removal of contents in affected areas. SEE CONTENTS AND STORAGE PHASE BELOW
• Repair Manager will be scheduled to assess
• SEE RECONSTRUCTION PHASE BELOW Note: Please contact our office with the date your insurance adjuster is scheduled for inspection
• Monitoring and checking the drying process will continue daily or as needed. (Average dry time is 3-5 days)
• Equipment will be picked up when dry

Contents and Storage Phase:

• Photo documentation of your belongings will take place before pack-out starts. All items are stored off-site in our facility
• Contents crew will start wrapping and boxing up items in affected areas
• Items will be inventoried by area of room removed from; They are not individually listed and itemized
(Examples: Left side of the entertainment center, Family Room – Right top shelf, Master BR closet … )
• Total loss items will be individually listed, itemized and photo-documented
• Total loss list will be emailed to you as soon as detailed inventory has been completed
• Contents will be returned after repairs have been completed

Reconstruction Phase:

• Repair manager will submit the scope of work needed to insurance or property manager for approval
• Service agreement will be signed by you and your repair manager
• Repairs are scheduled to start
• Change orders are to be approved and signed by you and your repair manager
• You will receive an estimated time to completion of your job based on all known factors
• Upon completion of repairs your project manager will schedule a walk-through to check that your home has been returned to pre-loss condition
• Final walk-through will be scheduled
• Certificate of Completion to be signed by you and your repair manager and payment for repairs collected at final walk-through

Note: If contents were packed and removed from site, the return will be scheduled between you and your project coordinator
