This week IAQradio+ will bring to a culmination its series on the Moisture Mob with the Mob’s “clean-up” hitter for a long line-up of subject matter experts from the flooring, roofing and inspection sectors of the industry and how it impacts restoration and IEQ related issues.
Renown flooring inspector from San Jose California will share the hard lessons he has learned over a career spanning almost four decades in the trenches. Roland Vierra is well known in the flooring inspection industry with flooring manufacturers, carpet mills, installation firms, retail outlets and cleaning companies.
When an issue arises involving warranties related to a possible manufacturing defect, installation issue, cleaning problem or consumer complaint, Roland is the “go to guy” called upon by industry insiders who want an unbiased 3rd party opinion to help resolve disputes!
Mr. Vierra’s problem solving projects often come down to moisture related issues at the root of the problem. Understanding product specifications installation standards, substrate characteristics, cleaning protocols and how materials are affected by moisture are a large part of an inspector’s work leading to their client report’s conclusions.
Roland has had a long history of working with the moisture measurement segment of the industry and in fact is known to have been the guy who suggested “A Stick” be developed as an attachment to moisture meters. That idea was long before the digital age and the “selfie” stick, but rather was born from the old adage that necessity is the mother of invention.
Inspectors have the same work related complaints that many flooring installers do, they spend too much time on their knees! Although that is part of an installer’s job function, the stick attachment for non pertaining moisture meters serves as a great tool for inspectors to more effectively diagnose moisture in floors and even roofs, it helps with back aches too.
Join the Z-man, Radio Joe and the Restoration Global Watchdog this week as they interview and banter with Roland “Mr.Stick” Vierra and talk about his life and times from almost forty years in the trenches. It will be an entertaining and informative show on the lessons learned that Mr. Vierra can pass onto IAQradio+’s growing group of loyal listeners to be better at diagnosing and resolving IEQ issues and restoring water damaged buildings!
