24-Hour Emergency Board-up: American Restoration Specialists will come to your site and stabilize the situation so further damage isn’t incurred. By tarping exposed areas and boarding up missing wall/window panels, the exposed area is protected from elements famous to Willamette Valley climes. This is NOT a job that should be attempted other than by professionals. There are many invisible dangers when dealing with a catastrophic loss. Trained restoration professionals know what situations may pose a threat. Damaged structural components, dangerous chemical byproducts, slippery surfaces and heavy tarp payloads make it nearly impossible for the DIY homeowner to adequately address the situation in a timely manner.
Rapid water/moisture removal: Once the damaged site is adequately protected from further exterior attack, American Restoration professionals start stabilizing the interior. Often rooms are water-damaged as a result of fire and storm activity. With an arsenal of nearly a hundred air-movers and dehumidifiers, American can quickly start the process of drying out damaged interior elements and preventing further building/ content deterioration. In cases of severe damage, contents must be packaged and moved to our warehouse for cleaning and storage while workers dismantle damaged structural components and prepare to restore the room to as-built condition.
Site inspection and damage estimation: The site must be thoroughly inspected and detailed estimates of damage drawn up for the homeowner and reconciled with the adjuster. American Restoration uses Xactimate software -- the same package used by Northwest adjusters. This expedites damage reconciliation between American Restoration inspectors and insurance adjusters. After working with the adjuster to finalize claims, American and the homeowner are free to adjust work to be accomplished through a list of change-orders. These permit owners to emphasize beneficial changes to new construction rather than simply replacing the damaged structure.
American Restoraion crews can now begin the process of cleaning and rebuilding your site. As this process proceeds, you will be kept informed on a regular basis as to what steps are being taken to remove and replace structures and fixtres.
Ozone machines and fans help remove smells. And shellac is painted on smoke-impregnated lumber to seal in the smell. New cabinets are installed and, soon, the property is better than new.
