Articles selected from Restoration and Remediation Magazine
R&R Magazine is a leading source of information on drying, disinfection, and remediation. As is common with trade magazines, some R&R articles are written by product manufacturers and sales representatives and consequently often reflect a certain bias. That said, often such articles are still useful and R&R always provides an author’s bio for the benefit of readers.
DDRS coordinators have selected assorted articles from R&R Magazine that cover interesting technical topics. Some may promote specific products. Neither R&R nor any product suppliers pay DDRS a fee to post their articles for discussion.
DDRS discussion or reference does not imply an endorsement of the products in the article. DDRS does not itself accept product advertising, and is funded by non-advertising support and/or donations. We are simply highlighting information about products that our readers find useful. We encourage readers to more fully understand the pros and cons of the products they use.
