Initial Assessment

  • Initial Assessment to determine both Indoor and Outdoor Temperature/Humidity and Document the Extent of Damage.
  • Collection of Environmental Samples, such as Microbiological and Fire-related Particulate Material, to document Existing Conditions and assist with the development of the Repair Scope and Method Approach.
  • Interaction with Industrial Hygienists as retained by the Insured to reach agreements for the Remediation process, including expediting (as it relates to Business Interruption and/or Extra Expense aspects) the Repair Plan of Action.
  • Development of Repair Scope and appropriate remediation Protocol.
  • Development of appropriate Drying Techniques that would respond to the Prevailing Conditions.
  • Determination of the Number, Size, Placement, and Duration of Equipment required.
  • Negotiations related to the Period of Restoration, Manpower required, and Governing Billing Rates.
  • Preparation of a Microbiological Impact Document that reflects Conditions at the Time of Inspection.

Period of Restoration

  • Clerk the Works or Daily Site Monitoring to measure Progress as to whether the Equipment and Labor being utilized is achieving the goals set out in the Remediation Plan.
  • Clerk the Works or Daily Monitoring for proper utilization of Equipment and Labor to ensure the required effort to Stabilize and Restore the Premises in the most prudent manner.
  • Daily Reporting that provides a Brief Narrative of Daily Activity. This includes Manpower and Equipment Counts as well as developing a “Daily Burn Rate” needed to make Accurate Forecasts. This Data also expedites the Post-Recovery Audit of the Contractors’ Invoicing.
  • Daily Measurement and Documentation of Environmental Parameters such as Humidity and Moisture Levels on impacted Materials and Microbiological Sampling to document and establish whether the desired progress is being obtained.
