Total Loss Inventory

Streamlining The Recovery Process

Total Loss Inventory refers to items in a structure that have become completely destroyed, unusable, unsalvageable or unsalable due to damage. When damage is caused by external factors such as fire, water or asbestos contamination it can be a stressful and difficult situation. Creating a detailed inventory of contents is an important first step in the recovery process which requires personnel that are specifically trained and certified to work in hazardous environments.

Alliance Environmental streamlines the process of taking a Total Loss Inventory by carrying out the necessary steps quickly and efficiently. This can help minimize the impact of the loss on the company’s operations by allowing the company to recover from the incident as quickly as possible. This can also help to ensure that the company is in compliance with all relevant regulations and that the inventory is disposed of in a lawful manner.

Causes of Damage

Fire is one of the most common types of events that can cause significant damage to items which would require a Total Loss Inventory. The heat and smoke from a fire can also cause secondary damage, such as discoloration and smoke odor. Water damage from floods, leaks, or other sources, can also result in the destruction or deterioration of items. In addition, if asbestos is present in a building, it can cause damage to inventory through contamination, making it unsafe for use or sale.

A wide range of personal property can be impacted by these disasters including furniture, electronics, clothing and textiles, artwork and photographs, books and documents, flooring and carpets, appliances, or personal items such as jewelry, collectibles and keepsakes are just some examples. Items that are destroyed beyond repair and those that are salvageable need to be identified and separated.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Jesus was so kind and friendly while picking up my items to be disposed of. He handled everything with care and had amazing communication with me from the start. He even let me know that if there were any other items they could haul away for us they would get in contact with me.
