Water Damage Standards

Article Summary: 

The article discusses the changing standards for water damage restoration in condominiums. Condominiums have historically used preferred vendors for water damage restoration, but the insurance industry is getting stricter due to rising claim costs. The ANSIIICRC S500-2015 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration is the current industry standard, but a new revision is expected in 2021. The new standard will emphasize "in-place drying" and give restoration companies more authority in determining drying goals. However, using knowledgeable and certified restoration companies is crucial for successful in-place drying. Condominiums should have an emergency response plan and identify a reputable restoration company with certified employees to handle water damage effectively.
