Contaminated Water Restoration

Learning Objectives

The Contaminated Water Restoration course is designed to teach restoration personnel concepts of contaminated water damage, such as sewage, and its effects and techniques for drying of structures. We also discuss when Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should be used and what PPE to have available.

This course will be of value to Water and Remediation Techs, Estimators, Project Managers, and others involved in disaster restoration.

We discuss aspects associated with this type of work, such as:

  • What are some of the causes of this type of loss and what may this include?
  • What is it we are dealing with?
  • What harm can it cause us?
  • How can we protect ourselves and the occupant?
  • Why is so much more involved than just drying the structure?
  • Why are these types of claims one of the most devastating losses?
  • Remediating buildings contaminated with sewage and other water losses safely, quickly, efficiently, and with the insured still a loyal client at the end of it all can be a challenge but is possible.
  • How do we address these situations as restorers?
  • How can they impact the insured ?
  • Why is coverage for sewer backups and black water infiltrations so important to the insured?
