At SERVPRO of Palm Springs we called on to deal with some very interesting projects. We have to deal with what we politely term as a collector’s house. These are projects that not only have a lot of physical work that is required but can also pose emotional problems for the client. We try and maintain a sense of caring and understanding, as well as focus and professionalism.
In this picture we see a shot of a person’s kitchen and living area, a large amount of personal items have been accumulated over the years and have affected access as well present additional work for the project. In this case we had a water damage that could not be mitigated until we cleared out all of the items. The hard part is that a technician does not know what is of value and what can be disposed of. Sometimes the owner has attachment to items that have no apparent value to others but still must be sorted and catalogued.
These jobs are not for the novice providers as they present some of the most challenging work that a vendor can undertake.
