DisasterCare Platinum Adopts Technological Approach To Support Insurance Industry

Online PR News – 28-October-2010 – – DisasterCare Platinum is bucking the trend to invest in the latest technological advances within the restoration sector - delivering cost savings for insurance companies and reducing disruption for policyholders.

The specialist restoration service, which caters for higher value and technically complex insurance claims resulting from flood and fire damage, has developed a new range of services to deliver optimum performance on site.

DisasterCare Platinum partners with a select number of insurers to deliver a nationwide restoration service, which moves away from more commodity-based restoration projects and is tailored towards more challenging projects.

Services offered include;

- Drying with heat utilising THERMODRY™ trailers. This technology recently proved its worth on site at a Grade II listed building, which flooded following a mains water burst in West London. Professionally deployed and correctly-monitored, this method of drying with heat ensured no threat to the structure and interior of this older building.

- Intelligent Systemised Drying (ISD). Although not as high-tech as other equipment utilised by DisasterCare Platinum, these gauges show relative humidity and temperature – and engage the policyholder to provide ‘remote monitoring.’
- Thermography. Infrared thermography and thermal imaging technology can speed up restoration works and reduce their impact on a property - making repairs less intrusive and more accurately targeted. For example, a camera can be used to identify the source of a leak beneath a ceramic tiled floor without having to dig it up, resulting in dramatic time and labour savings and less disruption.
- Directional drying. This highly-targeted system deploys warm drying air only to the areas where it is needed, reducing drying time, energy use and labour costs.

- Air injection system. This involves drilling directly into water-damaged slabs and injecting warm air into moisture-affected areas, thereby speeding up the drying process.

A video interview with Charles Jeffrey of DisasterCare Platinum gives an insight into some of the technology and can be found at http://www.disastercare.co.uk/videos.htm or DisasterCare Platinum’s own YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/disastercareplatinum

Charles Jeffrey, of DisasterCare Platinum, said: “We have invested heavily in this latest technology to ensure clear lines of communication with insurers, to optimise the cost of claims - and to help the policyholder in difficult times.

“We find the insurance industry is very receptive to the use of new technologies and recognises the benefits offered.”
