We would like to offer you an opportunity to lower your loss ratio and improve the service you provide to your insureds. We have created a training program designed to educate you and your staff about how to reduce the size of many of your property losses. The concept is called loss mitigation. In this class, you will learn just how much damage water can cause and what steps can be taken to reduce or minimize the damage.
Your insureds are not trained to think about things like water migration. They don’t understand how gravity and capillary action cause water to spread rapidly into non-affected areas. When left untreated, even for a short time, the loss worsens, the costs go up and you stand a chance of the insured experiencing more problems than necessary. What we need to do is STOP THE LOSS BEFORE THINGS GET WORSE. This doesn’t apply just to water damage, but to most property losses.
This course will demonstrate how water can damage carpet, wood floors and other building materials, how long until damage occurs and what steps can be taken to reduce or minimize the damage. The course will also illustrate water removal and explain the principles of drying and dehumidification. Mold growth, the use of antimicrobials and odor control will also be covered.
