The RRP rule requires that renovators are trained in the use of lead safe work practices & that renovators and firms be certified. Our easy to understand and short EPA presentation (informational only, not for certification) will help your company understand the rule, who and when it applies, recording keeping requirements and more! Learn the Facts about Lead Based Paint, The RRP Rule, The Steps to Lead Safe Renovation, Repair and Paint & the Impact on customers, loss ratios & cost of doing business.

Water Damage 101 FREE

We would like to offer you an opportunity to lower your loss costs and improve the service you provide to your clients. We have created a training program designed to educate you and your staff about how to reduce the size of many of your property losses. The concept is called loss mitigation. In this class, you will learn just how much damage water can cause and what steps can be taken to reduce or minimize the damage. What we need to do is STOP THE LOSS BEFORE THINGS GET WORSE. This doesn’t apply just to water damage, but to most property losses. If a mitigation specialist is called within 24 hours, many dollars can be saved. Mitigation specialists are trained to stabilize the damage and keep it from becoming worse. The result is less damage, lower cost, improved loss ratios, and satisfied customers.

Take Control Of MOLD FREE

Mold contamination continues to receive increased attention in the media and is a rapidly growing concern for homeowners and property managers, as well as insurance companies. Without proper mitigation of a water loss, mold can start to grow in as little as 48 hours, and mold contamination has been identified as a major contributor to building-related illness and poor indoor air quality. Mold remediation is not a difficult service to perform, but principles like containment, negative air pressure and protection from exposure must be clearly understood.

Despite the rapidly growing body of knowledge about mold, mold remediation remains the subject of a lot of confusion. We offer this educational class so that when you select or recommend a remediation company, you can make an informed and intelligent decision.

Smoke and Odor Damage Mitigation FREE

This class explores the chemistry of fire and the effects of smoke on various structural building components and household contents. In addition to smoke, chemical vapors and acid gases produced by the fire cause damage to contents if left untreated for even a short time. This course will identify the items in a property that are at risk and how emergency corrosion mitigation can prevent or minimize further damage. Also, odor mitigation methods such as ozone and air cleaning are explained in this course.

Trauma, Vandalism & Crime Scene Clean up FREE

Without the proper guidance and advocacy, families often face the cleanup themselves because they are unaware of the services that Trauma Practitioners perform. Consequently, when a self clean up occurs, it is often handled badly or illegally. Our community landfills are common dumping grounds for infectious and contaminated waste that should never have ended up there. Learn about the Trauma Restoration industry. (We won’t show Trauma pictures, we promise)
