Smoke/Odor Damage Restoration
3 credits, CE Course: VA#200121, MD#c36988, DC#00013606
Instructor: Chris Coffin
We would like to offer you an opportunity to lower your loss ratio and improve the service you provide to your insureds. We have created a training program designed to educate you and your staff about how to reduce the size of many of your property losses. The concept is called loss mitigation. In this class, you will learn just how much damage smoke can cause and what steps can be taken to reduce or minimize the damage.
Your insureds are not trained to understand how chemical vapors and acid gases cause damage to household surfaces such as aluminum, chrome, porcelain and marble. When left untreated, even for a short time, the loss worsens, the costs go up and you stand a chance of the insured experiencing more problems than necessary. There may also be security issues and possibly even water damage from fighting the fire. What we need to do is STOP THE LOSS BEFORE THINGS GET WORSE. This doesn’t apply just to fire and smoke damage, but to most property losses.
If a Mitigation Specialist is called within 24 hours, many dollars can be saved. Mitigation Specialists are trained to stabilize the damage and keep it from becoming worse. The result is less damage, lower cost, improved loss ratios and satisfied policyholders.
