How can SERVPRO Help You with Water Damage Cleanup of Your Chicago Home?   

Water damage cleanup of your Chicago home can be a complex process depending on the extent and type of the damage. One of the biggest challenges for SERVPRO restorers is to control the contamination that might accompany certain water damage situations.

Since water promotes and sustains microbial growth, the primary mitigation steps that SERVPRO techs take during water damage cleanup of your Chicago home include-

  • Drying the structure as soon as possible
  • Removing any contaminated material from the premises

In certain situations, however, SERVPRO water restoration experts might need to use products that may help slow or control microbial contamination growth.

How do SERVPRO Techs Use Professional Decontamination Products During Water Damage Repairs of Your Chicago Home?

SERVPRO techs use appropriate methods and precautions while using decontamination products during the water cleanup of your Chicago home. We only use EPA registered broad-spectrum disinfectants if water damage presents a potential for microbial contamination. SERVPRO techs use the product according to the product labeling and follow application methods specified on the label of the product.

Once the techs apply the disinfecting product, it needs to have a sufficient dwell time to be effective. The technicians also ensure temperature and pH are maintained so that the disinfectant remains effective throughout the application time.

Disinfectants generally are applied on the subfloor, tack strips, walls, and wall bottom plates. Such organic materials encourage microbial growth and the development of odors associated with microbes. Restores also apply deodorizers to help with the odor issues, if any, after the decontamination process is completed.
