Going The Extra Mile
When disaster hits your home, it is important to us at SERVPRO to ensure that nothing else gets damaged in your home when we are performing mitigation services. There are a few steps we may take to protect your contents as well as unaffected areas of the home. At SERVPRO we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to ensure your home and your belongings are safe.
One thing we may do is set up a containment barrier to separate the affected area from the unaffected area. This can be done by using poles that keep the containment up or by just taping the plastic barrier to the ceiling. By doing this we are eliminating the possibility of any dust or debris being blown into the unaffected area while our equipment is running. This can help eliminate cross contamination.
In addition to setting up the containment barrier, we will also use plastic sheeting to cover any items that are still in the affected area such as couches, beds, clothes, etc. Keeping these things covered stops them from being affected by any dust or debris. By keeping them covered, it eliminates the need to have the items cleaned at the end.
One last thing we may do is use boxes to put any content from the room that may have not been affected but will be in the way of the work that needs to be performed. Smaller items such as toys, pictures, games. These are small enough to fit in a box and be placed in another room, providing more space for the SERVPRO techs to complete the job.
