The IICRC S760 collaborative standard describes practical principles, methods, and processes to investigate, evaluate, and restore the interior and exterior of structures and improvements, and contents impacted by wildfire smoke emissions. In addition, this standard will also describe the basic principles governing wildfire particle and residue infiltration, distribution and eventual settlement on surfaces. The goal of this standard is to aid the competent professional, restorer, and other trades and professions involved in restoration, in defining the scope of a project and preparation of a work plan. This standard also establishes post-restorative methods and processes to evaluate the execution of the scope of work and verify the cleanliness of structures and contents impacted from wildfire smoke.
