Water Damage Remediation – Beyond the Basics

Learning Objectives

Restoration contractors deal with some sort of water-moisture problems in the majority of claims they do. Doing water damages quickly, efficiently, and with the customer still being pleased at the end of it all can be a challenge but is possible. The presentations and hands-on demonstrations will benefit everyone involved in water damage restoration work.

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:

  • The channels and importance of effective communication
  • Understanding the role of the Owner, property manager, the Broker, Adjuster, and the Restoration Contractor
  • An overview of the restoration and drying process from start to finish
  • Hands-on demonstrations
  • How to prevent indoor or environmental issues during and after the restoration process
  • Tips on being more productive and efficient in dealing with water losses
  • Contents: wet or dry – they need to be considered and dealt with
  • Evaluating the loss and determining the scope of work needed
  • An overview of how to deal with structural materials and reconstruction
  • How to prevent liabilities associated with hazardous materials such as mould, lead, and asbestos

This is a great refresher for staff who haven’t had the IICRC WRT course for several years as we discuss the latest techniques, guidelines, and processes. Also, it’s a great course to give a basic overview and primer for newer staff.
