Liberty OHM will visit your company to assess the potential obstacles that could be faced. Each person will know their responsibilities during and after a disaster or flood.
Floods can be particularly challenging as the damages is not always superficial. Areas that have been flooded should be inspected by the Liberty OHM to determine what needs to be removed to restore sanitary conditions. Often times, dry wall will absorb the water and the insulation behind the drywall will absorb the water up the wall, higher than the flood level. The insulation will then hold the water within the walls similar to a sponge. If the insulation is not removed, mold may begin to grow and cause more setbacks in the recovery process.
