What Should Be Cleaned & Restored vs. Replaced
Our friendly insurance adjusters at National Underwriter Property & Casualty say when determining whether soft-surface-content items such as fabrics and carpets should be remediated or discarded, it can be difficult to determine.
SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/OBX works directly with your insurance adjuster, as the restoration contractor. We are able to classify the indoor space that has been affected by a water loss into zones based on the amount of water damage. These zones are determined based for example areas of the structure that were not affected by the water loss or those directly affected by the water loss.
After the classification, cost effective remediation methods are tailored to the expected condition of the items in each conditional area.
This process helps to determine the amount of aggressive cleaning needed, thus helping to keep the costs at a minimum. Read More: Determining the fate of soft-surface items

This technology not only saves the insurance company money, but it also helps to prevent filling up landfills with chemicals & man-made fibers. How it's Done
