If you've read my articles before, you know that I lean toward minimally invasive drying. This article is no different: if you're a contractor who thinks he can make more money by replacing and repairing, put down the magazine and go get busy with your sledgehammer.
Because today's customers are more concerned with indoor air quality, air filtration is often used for customer - and employee - safety and peace of mind. Air filtration devices, or AFDs, are needed in water restoration work whenever the job involves.
I was watching TV and noticed a story about an upscale hotel in Las Vegas that had a flood on a custom wood floor. The maintenance staff used an airmover to "dry" it out. The floor eventually had to be replaced, and I found myself screaming at the TV the entire time: "Where are the drying panels? Why are you tearing this out? Why haven't you called a restorer?" Then my wife handed me the Ritalin bottle, and I calmed down.
Over 30 authors – over 40 articles…from attorneys, contractors, consultants, instructors and others, both inside and outside the restoration industry. R & R, C & R and Cleanfax, opened their archives and gave us the best they had, other chapters were created just for the “Get Paid!” book and its readers. And every one of them has ideas for how to get paid what you are owed.
