Watertown Area Insurance Agents Attend Cleaning and Restoration Continuing Education Class

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (March 8, 2013) - Local insurance agents learned about fungal remediation practices and guidelines during continuing education (CE) training by Rainbow International of Watertown, owned by Betty Grandjean, Feb. 27. CE class credits are required every two years for agents to keep their licenses.

The class of 24 was taught by Ron Clawson, Rainbow International System Sales Manager, in conjunction with the Professional Institute of Real Estate Training (PIRT).

“Our presentation is designed to teach attendees about fungus and mold development, and how it affects the repair process and the health of the occupants,” Clawson said.

Clawson gave an overview on what fungus is and how to identify it, provided information on how to reduce the cost of a loss from fungi (mold) contamination that results from water damage, and discussed the latest in regulations and industry standards.
