- THE MAGAZINE
RSA has completed The Complete Guide to Cleaning and Restoration, a comprehensive textbook for its restoration, cleaning and remediation classroom courses, according to a press release.
A successor to the New Guide to Restorative Drying published in 2006, the new 600-page full-color book covers all courses offered by RSA. This includes courses in trauma scene cleanup, water restoration and applied structural drying, upholstery cleaning, fire and smoke restoration, odor control, microbial remediation and carpet cleaning.
Extensively peer-reviewed by industry experts before publication, the book will be provided to all paid class participants. Participants in the July 31 Trauma Class will be the first to use it, and then it will be rolled out to all other RSA classroom courses over the next couple of months.
“The Complete Guide is a summary of everything we’ve learned in the past 40 years about cleaning, restoring and remediation,” notes Kevin Fisher, Legend Brands Technical Education Manager. “We decided to make the entire book available to every class to show our commitment to the professionalism and growth of our industry.”
The original restorative drying book, first published by Dri-Eaz in the 1980s, was written by Dri-Eaz Founder Claude Blackburn and Dri-Eaz education staff. In 2006 the book was updated and expanded to quickly become the standard reference for the restorative drying industry. In 2009, Purdue University selected the New Guide to Restorative Drying to be one of the textbooks for its newly established disaster restoration and reconstruction program.
“The Complete Guide is the definitive collection of RSA expertise,” says John Ormsby, president of Dri-Eaz Products. “It stands alone as the premier guide for today’s restoration, remediation and cleaning challenges.”
