New Water/Mold Standards & Ripple Effect CE Class Open!

Posted by:
Candace Johnson

Recently, a team of over 20 J.C. Restoration staff members attended a training class at our facility on the new water and mold standards – and their impact on managing risk and claims for customers. The class was built around the ANSI/IICRC S500 Water Damage Restoration Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration (2015).

ANSI/IICRC S500-2015 provides a specific set of practical standards for water damage restoration.  It does not attempt to teach comprehensive water damage restoration procedures; rather, it provides the foundation for basic principles of proper restoration practices.

ANSI/IICRC S500-2015 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration is a procedural standard. It is based on reliable restoration principles, research, and practical experience. In addition, there has been extensive consultation and information obtained from numerous sources. These sources include, but are not necessarily limited to the scientific community, international, national and regional trade associations serving the professional restoration industry, chemical formulators and equipment manufacturers, cleaning and restoration training schools, restoration service companies, the insurance industry, allied tradespersons and others with specialized experience.

WHY should you care about this?  Well, it helps the best restoration contractors handle your water loss better.  Also, these new standards are included in our Water Damage Restoration CE Class, this September – The Ripple Effect.
