Fire and Smoke Damage Refresher

Learning Objectives

Fire and Smoke Damage remediation services are a key part of most Disaster Restoration companies. This course is a great refresher for staff who haven’t had the SRT course for several years. Also, it is used as a basic overview and primer for newer staff who have yet to take the IICRC SRT course. Either way, the course and hands-on demonstrations will benefit everyone involved.

This Course will be of value to Disaster Restoration and Remediation Techs, Estimators, Project Managers and others involved in disaster restoration.

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

  • Assessment of a Fire and Smoke Damage property and contents
  • A variety of Cleaning procedures we can possibly use
  • Various procedures and cleaning tips, techniques, and processes
  • Deodorization techniques and equipment
  • Discussion on the basic tools of our trade
  • Hands on demonstration of various aspects of this work
  • An overview of common PPE to be used on Fire and Smoke Damage job-sites

Dealing with fire and smoke damage jobs require both technical abilities and procedures. We will spend time discussing the principals of fire and smoke damage and how to restore the property to its pre-loss condition. Also, we will do an overview of how to restore and deodorize contents and structural damage and how to deal with soot residue.

We will also discuss different restoration techniques including ultrasonics, ozone, Hydroxyl, Thermal and ULV Foggers, etc. We will look at some of the obstacles that can hinder removal of smoke odours such as not dealing with the source removal properly or performing work such as proper HVAC cleaning, etc.
