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.

Post Recovery

  • Undertake Audits and Negotiations to ensure that Invoices conform to the Remediation Scope and Agreed Upon Rates.
  • Verification (including Environmental Sampling), that Structural Drying and the Remediation Protocol has been successfully completed by the Contractor.
