Trust SERVPRO with Water Damage Restoration of Your Reading Home

Water damage at your Reading home can be due to many reasons such as burst pipes, ceiling leaks, basement flooding, or even sewer backup. While SERVPRO techs can handle minor water damage without much hassle to the homeowners, a move-out might be necessary if the damage is extensive.

A pack-out after water damage to your Reading property involves moving the contents of your home to a remote location, typically our warehouse. SERVPRO technicians take utmost care during this process to avoid any secondary damage. Moving the content can significantly speed up the water damage remediation process at your Reading home.

When is a Move-out Necessary During Water Damage Repairs at Reading?

A pack-out can be a stressful process for the homeowner, but in some cases, it is the best option. Here are a few such cases-

  • If the water issue is due to structural damage to your home that needs to be repaired, a move-out can hasten the remodeling process. The sooner it begins, the sooner you can come back.
  • If you have expensive belongings in the house that are sensitive to secondary water or mold damage, SERVPRO professionals might suggest a pack-out. Expensive paintings or antique furniture can be protected better if they are removed to a curator for restoration or to our facility.
  • If the water damage is due to extensive flooding and the water contains contamination, moving out may be the best option to protect both the residents and the contents

SERVPRO technicians work with you and explain the risk-benefit aspect of a pack-out so that you can make an informed decision.
