Case Study: Content Recovery

Project Manager: Courtney Reese

THE DISASTER

An electrical fire on the front porch caused fire and smoke damage to the whole 3800 square foot home. All contents in the home needed to be evaluated for smoke and fire damage. The home included a rec room with full-size arcade games, an entire room with NASCAR memorabilia that required extreme care with cleaning and inventorying, a weight room with several large pieces of equipment, and a full built-in bar needing to be disassembled.

THE RECOVERY

We coordinated the move out with various subcontractors on-site, including Golden West Games to handle the arcade games and pool table, World Wide Moving to dismantle the custom bar and bed frames, a specialty gym equipment company that could dismantle the work out equipment and reassemble once complete, a furniture refinisher for several wooden furniture pieces, and a textile company was contracted to handle soft goods throughout the home.

We evaluated and inventoried all content for salvageability. All salvageable content was brought back to our facility to be cleaned and stored until repairs were completed, roughly 15 months.
