Insurance adjusters attending Dri-Eaz ASD classes

May 14, 2007

More than 10 percent of Dri-Eaz Education’s Applied Structural Drying attendees in the last two years have been insurance adjusters. Their participation enhances their understanding of the overall drying process, equipment use and proper monitoring and documentation.

“This is affecting the restorative drying industry. Insurance adjusters are now requesting drying documentation that the IICRC S500 Water Damage Standard and Reference Guide says that restorers should be providing.” said Brandon Burton, technical education manager at Dri-Eaz.

“Those who don’t provide this information may find their invoices being challenged and adjusted - in some instances by several thousand dollars. On the flip side, those who have submitted the properly documented information are finding that they are earning higher profits and their invoices are being paid in a timely manner,” Burton said.
