Disaster (Fire & Smoke) Restoration (FSRT)

So your company has decided to enter the fascinating field of fire damage restoration. You’ve worked enough claims to see how varied and complicated the list of services can be. You’re beginning to question whether there’s any “rhyme or reason” to processing procedures or sequences.

Relax, you’re in good company. In fact, we were asking those same questions back in the 60s when we entered this rewarding field. Thankfully, we learned the answers, and began organizing them into the industry’s first course, taught in 1975, entitled Disaster (Fire& Smoke) Restoration. Eventually, Clean Care Seminars wrote the Fire and Smoke Restoration outline and exam and gave it to the industry through the IICRC. We’ve been teaching that course for certification ever since.

Over the last 25 years, and expecially the last 5 years, we’ve seen dramatic changes in restoration technology. We’ve collected over 600 slides and numerous videos of actual disaster situations. Nowhere will you find a more carefully developed course for professional restorers. Indeed the entire restoration industry has changed dramatically in recent years.Scientific studies and new information has revealed significant health hazards associated with improperly restored structures and contents. The new attitude is:

  • Restoration isn’t just a “job” that someone must do: it’s a profession with an expanding body of science to be studied and applied for the benefit of consumers and their families or coworkers.
  • Recently, Dr. Mike Berry, US EPA , challenged restorers to excel in their profession through education. He emphasized restoring for health and safety, rather than for appearance only.
  • Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) issues have overwhelmed restorers and insurers alike. Disaster damage creates many safety and health problems, if restoration isn’t accomplished properly.
  • Liability for improper restoration is increasing. Law suits are being filed against restorers and insurance companies alike.

“So just what’s included in this course?” you ask. Check this partial list of what you’ll learn:

  • In Module 1 we’ll cover general concepts. We’ll define what insurance companies expect. We’ll discuss restoration alternatives, determining value, and depreciation. We’ll talk about soiling associated with fires, and on-going damage caused by acid residues (corrosion, yellowing). We’ll cover chemicals and equipment, load lists, and the all-important subject of safety.
  • In Module 2 we’ll cover structural restoration, including: ceilings and walls of all types. We’ll explain restoration procedures for 14 types of fixtures found in homes and businesses. We’ll discuss all categories of flooring, along with unfinished areas (attics, crawlspaces, basements), and exterior pressure cleaning. Then, we’ll get into general procedures for HVAC restoration.
  • In Module 3 we’ll cover contents. This includes soft furnishings (upholstery, bedding), window treatments (draperies), wood furniture (case goods), appliances, electronics, dry cleaning and laundry, personal items, high-value items, kitchen accessories, books, and miscellaneous services.
  • Module 4 gets into structural deodorization, including general concepts, and summary procedures for both confined areas (grease fire) and overall contamination (gutted structure).
