Content Restoration And Storage

Your photographs and family heirlooms comprise a wonderful and sentimental part of who you are in this world.  So, when catastrophe strikes—and your home and belongings suffer fire, water, soot, or smoke damage—you want someone on site that has the experience, dedication, and compassion to save as many of these possessions as possible.  This is where Insurcomm’s content restoration and storage division shines.

Content Restoration

In the aftermath of a fire or flood or natural disaster, a nightmarish landscape of personal belongings litters the scene.  Emotions often run high, while hope sinks down low.  What you need at this delicate time is the confident and empathetic and capable presence of Insurcomm’s content restoration and storage division which is directed by Jeremy Boston.  “During your time of need, and when you are most vulnerable, if I know you’re looking for some personal item, I will sift through debris and soot and find it! I understand that it’s the items you can’t buy that mean the most.”  

Our Process 

Insurcomm’s process is straightforward, realistic, and centered on the well-being of you, the customer.  First, Jeremy and his certified team of content restoration experts assist in working alongside your insurance company to determine what items are salvageable and what are not. Those items that can be cleaned and deodorized are packed out, while non-salvageable items are documented, either by a third party for insurance purposes or in-house by Insurcomm, and then properly disposed of.  Insurcomm’s mitigation and reconstruction teams then arrive on the scene, as your items are inventoried, cleaned, deodorized, re-inventoried, and stored in Insurcomm’s state-of-the-art storage facility.  Finally, after your home is back to its original—if not better—condition, Jeremy and his team move all contents back and restore order and, as Jeremy says, “happiness.”

“My goal is to help ensure a smooth transition between the customer and the work Insurcomm performs…there are a lot of moving parts from contents to mitigation to reconstruction, and I am there to help ensure that it all works harmoniously and in the best interest of the customer.”  

Your One Point Of Contact

When disaster strikes and you make the call to Insurcomm, you can rest easy knowing that their philosophy of “whatever it takes, they will bend over backward to ensure the very best result” is shared by each and every employee on staff.  This is the Insurcomm Difference—a difference that leaves you feeling like a member of the Insurcomm family—and this is what guides our philosophy at Insurcomm as well as each and every member of our team.                

       


Certified Trauma Specialists: Yet Another Reason Why Insurcomm Is Your One Point Of Contact

Trauma, as it relates to the uncomfortable reality of death, is a difficult and highly emotional experience for everyone—be it a loved one, a police or fire officer, a doctor or nurse, or a member of a sanitization, disinfection, and remediation team. Dennis Cote and Jeremy Boston, two of five certified Trauma Specialists on staff at Insurcomm, rank as the kindest, most capable, and yet sensitive professionals in the business.

Insurcomm Biohazard Cleanup

Together with their team, they make it their goal to provide thorough and compassionate service.  And in their wake, when the job is complete, they not only leave behind a safe, clean, and deodorized scene, but they earn the trust, confidence, and often times the friendship of all those affected by such a tragedy.  “The gratitude is overwhelming and represents the best part of my job…people truly appreciate the work we provide and the manner in which we conduct ourselves throughout this difficult time.”

Putting The Customer First

It is widely known that the business of cleaning up in the aftermath of an unattended death requires dedication, sensitivity, and an exact and proven protocol.  The owners of Insurcomm—Neil Robbins and Mike Brown—have added yet another dimension to this proven formula which is that of support.  “We protect our team, both physically when they are on site and emotionally when they leave the site…if the stress level proves a little much for our employees, we provide safety nets through the Employee Assistance Program that are designed specifically for them…we are a tight group, like a family, and this commitment represents the backbone of our business.”

The Realities of Trauma

Both Dennis and Jeremy—when faced with the realities of bacterial risks, bloodborne viruses, medical waste, and odor removal—maintain an open and consistent line of communication with their cleanup team.  “I am always asking my guys, ‘Are you okay…you need anything…you need to take a minute…’ because tending to their well being is paramount to our overall success and leads to a job well done.” 

Insurcomm Puts You First

Client Interview: Chase Home For Children

  Insurcomm Client Interview: Chase Home For Children

Hello, Meme…so, to begin with, how did you hear about Insurcomm and what led you to them?

After having experienced extensive water damage on multiple floor levels within the Chase Home, one of our Board members, a former employee of Insurcomm, called Insurcomm and they respondedInsurcomm Client Interview: Chase Home in Portsmouth New Hampshire Restored by Insurcomm within 30- minutes with a team of professionals. Insurcomm was on the job from 9pm until 2am working to stabilize the damage and begin the cleanup process. A Project Manager then connected with me the following day and worked with our insurance company to develop a plan of remediation and reconstruction—one that was thorough while also maintaining the privacy, safety, and well-being of our residents.

Tell me about the damage that the Home sustained:

Insurcomm Client Interview: Meme Wheeler Of The Chase Home Shows The Work Of InsurcommThe damage was extensive and involved a multitude of restoration services, all of which were provided by Insurcomm. It was a good feeling knowing that one company handled the entire job in all of its complexities. This building was constructed in 1910, which presented even more issues for the Insurcomm team than just the apparent water damage. We needed extensive lead remediation and asbestos tile removal. Each of these challenges was met with resolve and a high level of competency on behalf of Insurcomm.

What was the most enjoyable part of working with your Insurcomm Team?

First, they were always available…I never felt that I had to spend time tracking them down or trying to contact them. Second, Insurcomm always followed through on the work promised…as a matter of fact, they consistently went above and beyond expectations. They even made upgrades that insurance was not going to cover, thereby helping to support the Chase Home for Children.

What did the Board, the staff, and the children think of the job and of Insurcomm?

Overall, and after months of professional, courteous, and highly skilled labor, the Board of Trustees and Directors, and myself, were ecstatic at the beautiful result…it looked to everyone as if Insurcomm had provided us with a brand new building,Insurcomm Client Interview: Meme Wheeler of the Chase Home Shows Off The Work of Insurcomm and for this we are grateful. Even our Chase Home residents have a new sense of pride in their temporary home…thank you, Insurcomm!

Would you recommend Insurcomm?

Absolutely…I have already spoken highly regarding Insurcomm’s services to my colleagues, and even to friends and family. I let them know that if they want a company that will give 110% of the best service possible, and if they want a company that cares deeply about the work and those affected by the disaster, then Insurcomm is their first and final call!

Thank you, Meme, for a wonderful interview and for the kind words…what a pleasure to have worked hard on your behalf! ~The Insurcomm Team
