Rely on the Trained SERVPRO Experts to Remove Bio-hazardous Conditions from Your Property

FEMA reports that floods are one of the most extensive water damage problems for a building. Floods cause sewage from sewer lines to back up into homes and businesses through drain pipes. The common signs within your home or business that you have a sewer problem are dirty water backing up out of a drain or the toilet, or a gurgling sound coming from the pipes. Did you know that you are responsible for the maintenance and repair of your building or sewer lines to the exterior? A sewer lateral is a pipeline between the city's main sewer line which is underneath the street of your structure to your interior drainage system.

A sewage bio hazard can be the result of a crack, age, or blockage from plants and tree roots. Shrubbery and trees with deep roots can grow into sewer lines causing a significant amount of damage. The blockage of an underground sewer line can be the combination of city and private property trees. As a result of this, the costs of its repair is divided between the two entities. If any type of blockage occurs in sanitation lines, it will cause a back-up into your property through the floor drains, most likely in your or first level. 
 
Sewer water is defined as contaminant water and any contact with it, even if it is for a short period, is a health hazard. Contact with this type of bio hazardliquid can lead to diseases and illnesses, not to mention its destruction of your valuables. Cleaning up sewer water is urgent, and it needs to be done immediately because its secondary damage is mold, mildew, contamination of household items and much more.
 
Steps needed to clean-up a sewage backup in your home or business is best handled by a professional from SERVPRO.

A wet vacuum should be used, floors and walls need to be mopped and cleaned, disinfectants must be used, and plumbing fixtures have to be flushed out.

The Principle of Cleaning After A Fire Damage

Surviving the aftermath of the fire damage can be quite a relief. However, the replacement and repairs can be very detrimental. Luckily, there are some insurance companies out there who would help with the costs. However, dealing with the aftermath does require some skills and expertise. The cleaning process isn't an easy task. Keep in mind that it requires extensive inspection, identifying types of residues and services, removing the residues, and disposal. All of this should be taken care of by a fire restoration specialist. After all, doing this on your own can be very dangerous, exhausting, time-consuming, and expensive.

Fire damage doesn’t not have to be a headache. This situation is mainly because the SERVPRO tech can take care of everything. They can start by inspecting the areas near the source of the fire and see how far the damage has moved through various structures. There are different types of smoke residues, and the SERVPRO specialist can select a cleaning method that can effectively remove these residues. Another thing to note is that the type of surface that has undergone the fire damage may require specialized cleaning method and products that are safe to use on the surface. The fire restoration experts may have to be cautious to preserve the materials or surface during the cleaning process.

Since smoke residues can bind to the surface that they come in contact with, the fire experts can use a dry and wet screening process to release these particles away from the affected surface. The restorer can adequately get rid of the debris and cleaning waste. Once everything is completed, the technicians can walk you through your home to make sure that you are satisfied with the results.

SERVPRO Technicians Offer Several Cleaning Methods When Remediating Mold

Damages caused by mold infestation can cause great inconveniences ranging from unsightly surfaces, musty smells to health issues after prolonged exposure. Whether the problem turns out to be easy or hard to deal with depends on the method used to remove the mold from the affected home. 

Several cleaning methods can be useful in remediation of mold damage. Each method has specific benefits over the others. If you are dealing with the problem on your own, lack of equipment or limited skills might restrict you from using some methods. Professionals like us, on the other hand, are not limited in these areas, increasing the chances of a positive outcome from the remediation.

Before starting the remediation process, our SERVPRO team inspects the property establishing which areas are affected. Depending on what we observe, we can opt for dry cleaning methods. We prefer this when there are light mold residues. We can also use it as a precursor to wet cleaning which involves using cleaning solutions and agitation. The two methods are perfect for hard, flat surfaces such as walls.
 
Sometimes the infestation might affect contents such as seats or other upholstery that cannot withstand wetness or vigorous agitation. Our SERVPRO technicians can opt to spray and wipe or use foam to clean the affected areas. We use equipment such as thermal foggers that make it possible to reach all sections of the areas we clean. With the mist they produce, it is possible to kill the spores without introducing too much wetness in the area. 

In case we have to immerse the items, we clean, we have to ensure they are dry enough to prevent further infestation. Our SERVPRO team relies on high-quality dehumidifiers, drying mats and air movers, which help deny mold the moisture needed for further proliferation. 

There are obvious benefits of involving a professional in your fight against mold and especially the chance to inhibit growth over a longer period. You should call SERVPRO of Lyon & Storey Counties,(775) 463-7378 and we can help you find the right solution.
