Smoke Damage Evaluations

  • structural fire, the synergist, industrial hygiene, certified industrial hygienist, FACS,

When claims of smoke damage and contamination began to pour in to insurance companies in the months following California wildfires, it became clear that these companies needed a better way to assess the validity of the mass of claims. As a result, the insurance companies turned to the industrial hygiene community, and specifically, to FACS to develop a standard assessment and create sampling protocols for these types of claims. This provided support for the insurance companies by helping them appropriately address the damage and help their clients not be at risk of an unhealthy environment.

Since then, FACS has evaluated hundreds of residential and commercial buildings around the state of California in support of our clients’ needs for method-driven and science-based evaluations of wildfire smoke damage and consequential environmental health claims.
