April 14, 2011

The Georgia Chapter of SCRT held a “Restoration Technology and Diversification Symposium” hosted by The Cleaner’s Coach at Truckmounts & Cleaning Solutions in Norcross, Ga. Fifty-two cleaners and restorers attended.

Jeremy Reets from Reets Drying Academy led a discussion on how to use heat and calculate evaporation potential in restorative drying with a live demonstration in the on-site flood house. Bill Coy from Sensible Life Products, makers of Benefect Botanical Disinfectant, explained how to read EPA-registered product labels and use environmentally safe products made for cleaning and restoration contractors.

Slade Smith with Bio-Reveal discussed the future of real-time microbial testing, while SCRT Georgia Chapter President Cara Agerbeck from Abatement Technologies presented information to members on portable air scrubber technology and the importance of using air filtration devices on restoration projects.

SCRT Technical Advisor Jeff Bishop gave a PowerPoint presentation on successful diversification into the restoration industry. He shared with members many of the possibilities available to grow with or without insurance company PSP programs.

Wrapping things up, Gordy Powell from A1 Bio-Clean provided insight into the challenges of trauma cleanup and bio-recovery services, complete with case studies and photographs of actual remediation projects.
