In the rush of evacuating from a life threatening natural disaster, rarely do people have the time to gather up photographs and keepsakes much less loading up furniture and clothing. When families return to their homes, it can be devastating to see the damage. It’s why family heirlooms, photo albums, artwork, and quilts become all the more cherished.
While many things may be lost in a flood, some are salvageable if given the right attention and care. For example, the Smithsonian Institute recommends freezing photographs and books as soon as possible and then taking them out in small batches to air dry.
FEMA’s recommendations are to find and rescue those things with the highest value such as heirlooms, artwork, photographs, and jewelry. Because you face so many priorities after a hurricane, it is important to know there are resources and people who can help you in your efforts to restore valuable water-damaged items in Houston. Many professionals specializing in conservation and restoration are willing to travel.
During the aftermath and cleanup of Hurricane Harvey, Houston residents and businesses can confidently store salvaged and undamaged items in a storage unit. Here at Metro Self Storage, we are familiar with working with people during life transitions and in the wake of natural disasters.
