Saving Valued Items
A fast-food restaurant had a fire, but this time, the contents pros moved so quickly that the thousands of dollars’ worth of frozen foods had not even begun to thaw. So, the specialists arranged to take the salvageable items to an alternative facility.
A small fortune was saved for the insured and the carrier.
The contents pros performed a “deep cleaning” of the entire place of business.
And of course, every item that could not be restored to pre-loss condition was added to the non-salvageable list, shown to the owner and the adjuster on the case, then properly discarded.
Normally, food that has been in a fire is automatically discarded by the contents pros, but this time the freezer actually protected those items until they could be packed out.
