What is a GMO?

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
Most GMOs have been engineered to withstand the direct application of herbicide and/or to produce an insecticide. However, new technologies are now being used to artificially develop other traits in plants, such as a resistance to browning in apples, and to create new organisms using synthetic biology. Despite biotech industry promises, there is no evidence that any of the GMOs currently on the market offer increased yield, drought tolerance, enhanced nutrition, or any other consumer benefit

 

PROPERTY PRESERVATION FAQ’s

What is “Property Preservation” ?

Property Preservation is what has become known in the Real Estate field as services that will return a property, (whether foreclosed or not), to a saleable condition, or what the industry refers to as “Conveyance” condition. In simple terms, we clean property. Our job is to prepare a property so the realtor has the ability in turning the lenders asset over as quickly as possible. This can only be done by preparing the property to be presented in the best aesthetic light possible.

How long does it take you to clean properties with massive amounts of garbage?

For most properties we have services completed within 72 hours. Of course securing a property does take a precedence and this service is always completed within 24 hours. We have completed services on properties with up to 600 yards of debris within our 72 hour time frame.

What do you do with all the stuff you find?

When we do come across items like clothes, cars, TV’s, photographs, tools etc., these are considered personal property and there is a legal proceeding that has to be completed prior to our company removing them. Once the client has completed this proceeding we are given a written documentation authorizing our company to remove items.

Items like clothing, shoes, dishes and household appliances we donate to a local charities. We do work with the Big Brothers and Sisters, Salvation Army, F.I.S.H. Battered Women’s Shelter, Little League, organizations donating to their thrift stores. We try to find homes for anything that someone could use versus throwing things in the landfills.

What about the garbage you remove?

We do our best to recycle. When we evaluate a property, we have one employee walk the property and collect the aluminum cans and plastic bottles. We separate all metal for the salvage. All hazardous materials like paints, liquid chemicals are sent to an environmental disposal company. Tires and batteries are sent to a recycling company. With technology advancing so rapidly TV’s and computer monitors are constantly being left behind, these are classified as “E” waste and have to be taken to a disposal company specifically equipped to process them in an environmentally safe manner. Of course, there are disposal fees for these items. There are expenses incurred in the recycling process so recycling companies have to charge for their services. The exception being aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and metals.

How about vehicles left on a property?

First we ask the local Sheriff to perform a “VIN check” to determine if the vehicle is stolen or not. If the vehicle is on a “hot sheet” then we turn it over to the authorities. If it is not we have the vehicle towed and stored. At that point we send a registered lettered to the last registered owner so they may claim it. If after 30 days they do not claim it or the letter is “return to sender” we can go through the legal proceedings to claim it. We try to find organizations that need transportation help and make a donation. Generally most vehicles left behind are not worth repairing. If this is the case we have them towed to the local scrap yard.
