do on a project ?
Westlife is called in on a project for many different reasons.
Our most important job is to make sure all the environmental concerns of our client are met. Is this a sale of a visibly impacted property? Are there indications of hidden impact? How concerned is the client about conditions existing in the property? Are there health concerns, Legal concerns or lender concerns?
It is Westlife’s job focus to insure that any and all of these concerns are addressed through our involvement in a project.
Westlife’s primary job on a project is to act in our client’s best interest
– and to insure all of the client’s concerns are addressed by our service.
Westlife’s process, once called in on a project, goes usually something like the following:
1) We do a full environmental inspection of the area – or full property – addressing all environmental services we cover, or separate services singlely - depending on client instructions. We ordinarily cover all the living space, including any garage space, and do a full, ground-level, inspection of the exterior of the property, looking for signs of water intrusion. We use all our knowledge, experience, and any instruments that may assist our assessment.
2) We photograph all areas, concentrating on any areas of concern we may find. We then discuss any need for sampling with the client. Westlife does NOT sample without sound reason or client permission.
3) Westlife takes all this information and compiles it into a full formal written report that includes any protocol for remediation for microbial impact found.
Westlife can provide recommendations for remediation contractors, if requested. This allows for competitive biding for scope of work included within our report. Westlife provides continuing phone support during the project to anyone involved in the project – as needed and as permitted by our client. We can also provide on-site supervision when contracted for it.
Separately – NOT as part of our Preliminary Inspection – Westlife provides Post Remediation Verification (Clearance Inspection) to the client for the area remediated. This will vary from job to job, but will be setout within the Preliminary Inspection Report as to what type of sampling and where sampling will be taken. An estimate for clearance costs can be provided after to our initial inspection is completed. At our clearance inspection (Post Remediation Verification) Westlife will fully inspect and evaluate all work done prior to reconstruction.
During our inspection Westlife will photo document the work completed, Insure our protocol was followed during project, Take permitted/recommended samples for data documentation and compile a full written report containing all pertinent information and provide it to our client.
Westlife does NOT perform remediation! Any firm that sets the scope of work, performs the work and THEN attests to quality of work that they (themselves) completed is open to severe ethical issues and conflicts of interest. Our client’s interests are best served through use of a 3rd party inspection/consulting firm - like Westlife - to oversee, document and affirm the quality of their remediation project.
