New Guide Signposts Insurers To New Technologies For Water Damaged Building Repairs

DisasterCare Platinum has produced a new guide designed to show insurers how cost-savings and efficiencies can be introduced to reduce the impact of restoration works to water damaged buildings.

Online PR News – 22-December-2011 – – The last two winters resulted in some of the largest claims on record in the insurance sector as a result of water damage – mainly caused by roof pipes bursting in homes.

Large costs were incurred by insurers – and policyholders endured a good deal of disruption and devastation due to the scale of losses.

Charles Jeffrey, of DisasterCare Platinum, said: “With this in mind we’ve produced ‘The Use of Technology To Recover Water Damaged Buildings,’ which provides a summary of how technology is able to reduce the time a claim is live – and the potential disruption of restoration repairs.

“The guide available at covers the concepts of drying with heat, conventional drying technology, sustainable drying, and monitoring and evaluation.

“The information is designed to help signpost insurance professionals to some of the innovations within the marketplace, and help them make informed decisions about the processes that can now be introduced for future claims.”

DisasterCare Platinum has also produced a video, entitled ‘A Technology Guide,’ which can be viewed at
