Other Home Repair Issues
Course 50

About the course

Many losses, especially fires, can leave an unacceptable odor behind if not properly handled. The lesson begins with a discussion of odor control and the proper standards to use. Fire-damaged items with protected pattern damage are discussed next and some examples are shown. Ways to avoid incorrectly estimating these items as cleanable are reviewed. Water and flood damage issues are covered next as well as the immediate steps that should be taken to remediate the damage. Vehicle collision with a structure and earthquakes apply similar stresses. Both types are reviewed including a detailed review of how cracked concrete can be repaired. The lesson ends with a review of the types of damage caused by high winds such as hurricanes and tornadoes.
