There are so many issues left behind water after flood damage in a home. Once the water enters, the loss begins almost immediately and compounds from there. Flood water is never clean and often has toxins, sludge, and sewage resident in the mess that just landed in someone's living room. 

SERVPRO technicians understand the importance of testing the water, causing flood damage in a Brooklyn home. They have numerous types of chemical treatments to neutralize different types of bacteria and microbes correctly, and testing points them in the direction of the proper application.

Moisture Supports Microbial Growth

The removal of moisture is crucial in stopping the spread and growth of harmful bacteria and microbes. Mold spores germinate quickly, and colonies spread unless dealt with swiftly. Because the technicians hold a license for Mold Remediation: #00055, they know the early warning signs. Technicians use a combination of both extraction and the use of dehumidifying equipment to remove moist air and replace it with warm, dry air. The use of air movers works to pull moisture up and out of walls and flooring and used in tandem with dehumidifiers. 

Safety First 

When a home receives a flood loss incident, it is typical for the temporary relocation of the residents during mitigation. This is because floodwater has the potential to be harmful to both pets and humans; it comes into contact with. SERVPRO technicians wear full-body protection gear including respirators with HEPA filtration during the cleanup and disinfection process.

Stout Application of Antimicrobial Treatments

Bacteria is a significant contributor to odors at a property. The actions of drying and disinfection of the surfaces go a long way towards the goal of odor elimination. When testing shows the presence of different types of bacteria and microbes, the SERVPRO technicians often choose a broad-spectrum disinfectant, so a single application kills nearly all the microscopic intruders and radically reduces odors.
