Pre-Loss Condition For Disaster Restoration

While damage or loss of property during a storm, water damage, fire, or a natural disaster may be inevitable, by being prepared, you can quickly reduce the resulting downtime you will have to face. When you document your business’s pre-loss condition and contents, you get to manage your expectations better and aid the commercial restoration and reconstruction process significantly.

Think of the list as a guide for disaster restoration crews and your employees, giving them a framework to base their operations on. Everything can be bought and implemented in one go and just the way it was, reducing the time it takes for repairs.

Maintaining the list can be slightly tricky, though. There are numerous considerations, from making a list of assets, their condition, value and usage tof its positioning, the extent of use, and more. The goal is to show insurance agents, employees, and disaster restoration crews what the asset was and how it was placed, to begin with. 

The process can be quite exhaustive with a detailing list, a bunch of cameras, and compilation software. Furthermore, it can be quite confusing if you don’t have specialized equipment. You need 3D imaging technology to ensure that the pre-loss condition map reflects the essence of your property. 

3D Imaging for Recording Pre-Loss Condition

911 Restoration uses 3D imaging to help our crews understand how to go about the restoration process and aid the insurance companies in determining the extent of loss and finding the source, be it on-site or for remote insurance adjusters. While the 3D Imaging technique was used in the medical field on a micro-scale first, not it is also being used on a macro scale by construction and restoration services extensively. 

Instead of buying this technology, you can call 911 Restoration and schedule a pre-loss condition for disaster restoration, allowing us to create a cost-effectively 3D map of your property. It would be best if you considered storing the map on the cloud so that it is accessible, even after extensive damage to your property. 

Pre-Loss Condition Documenting Process

The process involves using top-of-the-line 3D imaging cameras to capture your entire property from every angle and creating a digital, 3D map on supported software such as Solid Works or Autodesk Maya. Every inch is closely analyzed and recorded. Experts start from the entrance and detail every asset as they move into the corners of your commercial property. 

This can also be done to support residential disaster restoration services

Whenever you make any changes to your business’ infrastructure or the layout, you should consider updating the pre-loss condition map to represent restoration services and insurance adjusters properly. 

Benefits of Documenting Pre-Loss Condition

As the cost to businesses due to disasters increases, there are numerous benefits of maintaining a pre-loss condition record for your business. These include:

  • Promote remote insurance process, facilitating the adjustment process
  • Allows for real-time information to flow to get the job done quickly
  • Commercial restoration crews can constantly update a copy of the pre-loss condition to give you regular updates about how the restoration process is coming along. You can analyze the entire process remotely. 
  • Improves asset and process reporting before and during disaster restoration. 
  • Helps quickly identify potential problems by comparing the property’s current conditions with the pre-loss ones. This is also true for water damage, fire damage, mold, and other disasters.
  • You can get a physical and digital definition of your property. These measurements can help you plan future operations and improvements accordingly.
  • Gives you a unique perspective on your property. 

Commercial property restoration can get confusing and frustrating very quickly. The map is relatively similar across the property. There are also a large number of assets that may get lost during the damage without leaving any trace of their existence. 

Insurance providers usually don’t reimburse for assets that weren’t recorded. By creating a pre-loss condition report, you can easily avoid facing this issue and similar ones in the near or far future.
