SERVPRO Cleans Soils and Takes Care of Contaminated Materials and Odors

One of the effects of flooding is depositing dirty materials inside the affected home leaving behind an unsightly and even smelly environment. You may not believe that your once clean home can regain its preloss conditions after flood damage.

Unlike other forms of flood damage in your Raleigh property, soiling is more manageable, provided there are sufficient cleaning resources. You might even resolve the situation without replacing any materials or items in your house if soiling is the only problem. That is why involving a professional service like SERVPRO helps since we provide sufficient work crews and powerful cleaning equipment to tackle tough cleaning tasks. 

A cleaning exercise after flooding must ensure that:

  • The house looks clean
  • All areas smell clean
  • All surfaces are sanitary

The choice of cleaning agents is the first thing that can help reinstate sanitary conditions in your home. A cleaning product is as good as its chemical constituents since they determine the effectiveness against soils or hazardous materials. Since most cleaning products combine several chemicals, choosing the right concentration is the essential aspect.

The essential chemical agents in a cleaning product include:

  • Antimicrobial action against microorganisms
  • Disinfectant or germicide properties to destroy 99 percent of microorganisms
  • Sanitizers that reduce any microbial to acceptable levels

When cleaning the house or drying wet areas, it is possible to aerosolize contaminants, thus spreading them. One way our SERVPRO crews manage this is by running air filtration devices that remove aerosolized materials from the air since they are layered with filters, including HEPA filters that remove 99.97% of airborne particles.

SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest takes the necessary actions to ensure your home is fully restored after flood damage, “Like it never even happened.”
