|Main Body||This Complimentary Session Provides an Overview of the Following:|
1.Update on regulations and guidelines, general liabilities and due diligence responses to water damage and mould growth.
2.Review of the categories of water damage.
3.What needs to be completed during a flood assessment.
4.The remediation monitoring and documentation process.
Flood incidents in buildings can result in many inconveniences such as business interruption, accessibility issues and damages to building materials. Immediate response is key to limiting these inconveniences and limiting secondary damages such as microbial growth.
Employers, property managers and facility managers face both regulatory actions and civil litigation if they do not effectively prevent or manage situations of potential mould growth.
Understanding the three categories of water damage will aid in decisions for removal versus salvaging building finishes. Assessing the extent of water damage and monitoring the remediation efforts will provide documentation that all affected areas have been adequately remediated.
