Flood Response

016DST’s team has been providing comprehensive flood response consulting to clients on various flood related issues for decades.  Whether the required scope of work consists of third party verification or full range inspection and remediation supervision, DST has the capability, resources, and expertise to meet any of your flood response needs.

Flood Response: What You Need To Know

The source of the flood water as well as the composition of the flooded building materials both influence the appropriate remediation action. Standards such as those developed by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) are typically referenced.

Appropriate identification of water impacted building materials and required remediation actions are essential to limit the risk of mould development. In the event that mould is encountered and is suspected to pre-date the flood event, DST has the ability to time-date the mould growth. This is of particular value to insurance providers.

Other considerations include:

  • Potential presence of hazardous materials (e.g. asbestos within building materials)
  • The possibility of elevated concentrations of bacteria such as Legionella from standing water in sprinkler lines or fecal coliform from sewer backups

 

Methods & Equipment

Some of the methods and equipment used by DST to rapidly and accurately identify the extent of water damage and any associated health & safety risks include:

Flood Response Services

  • Hand held moisture meters (pin and pinless)
  • Infrared thermal imaging
  • Boroscope investigations, using small diameter holes or cracks to inspect cavities without requiring destructive cut-outs (popular for schools, health care environments, etc.)
  • Temperature and humidity readings
