What is Matterport and Why Does it Matter?

For the most severe water damage and fire damage losses, Octagon Cleaning and Restoration uses Matterport 3D scanning technology allowing property owners and insurance adjusters to inspect a damaged property at any time and from anywhere. We are committed to providing the most accurate and efficient loss documentation. 

The Matterport 3D platform provides the most comprehensive loss documentation possible by:

  • reducing time spent in the field 
  • rectifying discrepancies in damage claims 

3D scanning speeds up the approval process by closing insurance claims faster and eliminating incomplete documentation, insufficient photos, and time-consuming manual measurements.

What is Matterport?

Matterport Technology is a 3D camera system used to create realistic, fully immersive experiences. Our technicians use this tool to capture imagery, collect measurements, and process data to create 3D renderings of your property.

Viewers can explore the damaged property from various viewpoints, examine the extent of the damage, and inspect the space without physically being there. Our technicians scan the damaged property once, and then the details are available at our fingertips (including precise measurements!). 

Matterport 3D Technology

Our restoration technicians create highly realistic virtual environments. The renderings are interactive without sacrificing quality. You can virtually explore from a first-person perspective, examine the space from any angle, and get a 360-degree view.

This powerful and efficient tool captures virtual images of the space and digitally collects measurements from various viewpoints. It then processes the data all for the single intent of creating a virtually-rendered space with extreme precision.

The Matterport 3D Platform During COVID-19 

Many insurance companies prevent or limit adjusters from entering properties due to COVID-19 making it difficult for the insurance claims process to move forward. Our qualified technicians are equipped with the proper PPE and are trained and infection control procedures. They will capture the loss in real-time, with a 3D interactive walk-through, scope the job, and provide an accurate sketch of the property. As the country starts opening back up, technologies like Matterport wil be the way of the future.
