How We Deal With Contamination After A Flood In Your Fruita Home
Dealing With The Contamination In Your Property After Flooding Damages Neighborhoods In Fruita
Once flooding recedes from a house in Fruita, we can begin decontamination, a crucial part of the restoration process. Without decontaminating surfaces and absorbent, washable materials, your family could experience unwanted health effects. Microbes can infest your home because of temporary dampness and large amounts of available nourishment.
Contamination in a Fruita house with flood damage can also spread to the air. At SERVPRO, we do more than spray disinfectants on surfaces to kill germs. We also use machines to generate hydroxyl, which can kill microbes in the air. Hydroxyl is so useful but also safe enough for our employees to steadily work that, unlike with ozone, we can continue the restoration process.
For hard surfaces like the concrete floor in your garage, we spray an initial treatment on, and after a short dwell time, we remove any garbage, plant materials and other objects washed in on the flood. Then we hose it down to rinse it free of smaller-sized debris. After cleaning with mops, sponges, or towels, we apply another application of a disinfectant.
Outside, we also clean up your property to ensure no dangerous debris remains hidden that might harm your children, pets, guests, or others. This debris might come from your own home or neighbor's houses. Mud can cover some of this up, so we might choose to spray walkways and driveways down with a hose to clear the area.
Our building services crew might step in during our restoration work to board up windows that rising floodwaters broke. We do this also to increase your home's security and make things safer for authorized individuals. Microbes and pathogens are not the only threat to your house after a flooding event.
When non-porous items show contamination from flooding, we do not need to wash each piece separately. We can use our ultrasonic water-bath equipment to remove soils, oily residues, and microbial deposits. The process works rather quickly, and often removes stains, also.
After flooding of your Clifton, Palisade, Loma, or Mesa house, call SERVPRO of Grand Junction for professional mitigation, drying, restoration, and elimination of unwanted microbial populations. Our 24-hour services number, (970) 241-8181, is available every day of the year.
