ESI has developed thousands of protocols that provide a complete and comprehensive understanding of the claim related and non-claim related issues for you and your clientele. When dealing with mold remediation, sewage mitigation, and asbestos abatement, it could save everyone involved time and money by having a protocol developed with pre and post inspection and testing.
Having a third-party environmentalist develop a protocol will help with the following:
- Knowing the level of mold/biological or asbestos contamination in the breathable airspace is critical information PRIOR to anyone working. This knowledge will play a vital role in keeping people out of the hospital and courts of law.
- Determining a normal indoor fungal ecology for the building envelope as well as the outdoor fungal ecology is a vital piece of information needed when asked to perform post clearance testing.
- Documenting and understanding health concerns and sensitivities of the occupants is extremely important in identifying the proper remediation and/or restoration techniques.
- Knowing the specific building science will have an impact on the remediation methods required, including any natural gas entering the building envelope and HVAC zoning. This is critical when designing isolation chambers and/or negative and positive air pressure zones.
- Determining if there are any contributing factors other than claim related issues that may impact occupants or cross-contaminate non-affected areas of the building.
- Determining if the building interior or exterior have pre-existing conditions that could cause future problems with the remediated and/or restored areas once the claim is closed.
- How to pass clearance tests
- When, Why, & How to use an environmental company
- What are microbial and biological contaminants?
- Top 10 ways to protect all parties involved during mitigation efforts
- Building science cause and effect
- Understanding why remediation protocols are important
- Understanding claim related vs non-claim related
ESI is also happy to tailor a seminar to fit your specific needs.
