For Business Owners

FLOOD AND FIRE RECOVERY are specialised disciplines which are distinct from the general building work often required in the aftermath of water or fire damage incidents. This also applies to contractors dealing with contamination issues.

While many of our accredited members work on both commercial and domestic properties, the BDMA is introducing a Commercial Damage Management accreditation category for those who specialise in recovery and restoration of commercial premises.

Businesses have specific priorities and want to feel confident that anyone involved in dealing with the aftermath of a disruptive incident understands the need to work closely with them to factor in and resolve issues of business interruption, contract commitments, etc.

There are many examples of damage management contractors being instrumental in reducing down time, or avoiding the need to move operations to alternative premises, by carefully planning the recovery around the needs and priorities of the business customer and working with them collaboratively to ensure the most cost effective outcome.

Business owners are encouraged to use this site to learn more about damage management and when and how technicians can help in dealing with damage caused by water, fire or contamination, in order to get a business back on track as quickly as possible.

Visitors can confirm the status of anyone claiming BDMA accreditation by checking against the list of Accredited Individual Members.  If the person is accredited by the BDMA their name, company and level of accreditation will be listed. Please contact the BDMA by email via if you need further clarification.

PLEASE NOTE: While many companies employ accredited BDMA practitioners, this does not mean the company itself is accredited. Only organisations listed as Accredited Corporate Members can claim this status.
