U.S. Forensic evaluates residential and commercial properties to determine the origin and cause of fires. We assess whether the fire is a result of a construction defect, material, equipment, appliance failure, lack of maintenance, third party contribution, or arson. When warranted, U.S. Forensic utilizes the FARO 3-D laser scanner to obtain 3-D images of the scene.
U.S. Forensic also provides asbestos clearance after a fire.
U.S. Forensic determines the origin and cause of vehicle or heavy equipment fires. We assess whether the loss is a result of a manufacturing defect, improper service or repair, lack of maintenance, improper use, or arson. Fluid samples are taken and mechanical inspection is performed to determine if any mechanical damage was present prior to the fire.
U.S. Forensic utilizes accelerant detection canines. They can survey a large area in half the time it takes investigators due to their superior olfactory senses. Past history confirms that canine alerts yield a high probability that accelerants are present. This provides a more focused and efficient investigation. K-9 Handler testimony is admissible in court.
