SERVPRO of Gilbert - Gilbert Contents Storage
Restoration of damaged properties is rarely a single step action. In some cases, we have to move contents from properties to an external storage facility to allow smooth restoration of the affected property or protect the items from further damages. SERVPRO provides wooden vaults to store the contents from each property. Each vault has 280 cubic square feet of storage.
As Tom Curran, one of the owners of SERVPRO of Gilbert explains, it takes a process to put together the vaults ensuring every client's belongings are safe and traceable. "Today we are working on a project, putting together twenty-five new vaults," Tom says as the bottom panel of the first vault is laid down.
Using box-shaped vaults helps us utilize the space in our climate-controlled warehouses better because it is easier to arrange them." The contents from any given loss that we have, we store at our warehouse, which is about 14000 square feet," Tom says. The vaults are also stackable allowing us to utilize the vertical space in the warehouse.
Proper record keeping is necessary to ensure every item returns to the property once we finish the restoration. With the vaults, it is easy for SERVPRO technicians to keep records of items and trace them later because items from one property or a section of the property are secured in a single location. "Each one of the individual customers will have the labeled tags of the vault," Tom elaborates the benefit vaults have on record keeping.
In addition to tagging vaults with belongings from one property, our SERVPRO technicians also take further steps to identify the contents in each vault. "We'll be able to inventory them with individual pictures of the contents inside," Tom expounds on how we achieve that. "This allows us to track and see if a customer wants to come view the contents, we can find them at any given time," he says.
