Restoration, Recovery & Mitigation of Water-Damaged Buildings After Hurricanes, Fires & Other Disasters
In 2007, I worked in a hospital that was surrounded by the San Diego wildfires. The skies were dark, ashes rained everywhere and air quality was poor. Thousands of residents were evacuated, businesses were shut down and healthcare facilities were evacuated. However, the greatest challenges occurred during the mitigation process necessary to begin clean up and to reopen businesses.
Our hospital needed to start building reoccupancy after a fire department representative recommended that we work with a remediation and recovery consultant to clean the damaged products and buildings. This article provides guidelines in remediation, recovery and mitigation for water-damaged buildings and goods.
