When a major loss such as a fire or flood occurs, a coordinated response by a team of professionals is required to mitigate the loss, assess the extent of damage and determine an accurate scope of work for restoration.

At the same time there may be health and safety related concerns for first responders, building occupants and restoration personnel due to contaminants directly (such as sewage contamination or poor air quality) or indirectly (such as the onset of mould due to water damage or disturbance of asbestos-containing materials during restoration) related to the loss.

The key to dealing with these myriad of issues while at the same time keeping costs under control is having qualified and experienced professionals respond in a timely manner and provide adjusters, insurers, restoration contractors, the insured, and other materially interested parties with the information they need to conduct the work required safely and quickly. This also ensures due diligence and enables faster estimating / reserve-setting times.
