Coatings are an integral component of fire restoration, most crucially to prevent the recurrence of smoke odor. Coatings implemented post-fire are not finish paints, but can serve as primers while blocking stains and adhering to less-than-ideal surfaces.
We’ve all heard about volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Restoration and remediation professionals use or encounter them in scores of different products every day. These include cleaning solutions, adhesives, aerosols, paints, fabrics, carpets, and building materials.
A recent anniversary – 21 years in the business – was announced by my business-related social network computer program. Of course, I realized that the milestone – completing my second full decade in the restoration industry - was approaching, but I didn’t realize that the programmers at LinkedIn would announce it to my entire business and social network.
