SERVPRO Offers a Premier Flood Damage Restoration to Little Rock Homes
Flood damage to your Little Rock home after a storm can be a complex mess to clean up. Professionals like SERVPRO have the necessary equipment, training, and experience to restore your home after a flood safely. Apart from the structural damage, floodwater can bring microbial contamination that needs to be addressed promptly.
SERVPRO follows the IICRC S500 guidelines to restore flood damage to your Little Rock homes. After ensuring the safety of the occupants, the first job is to remove any standing water from the property. The next step is to dry the structure as quickly as possible and decontaminate the building if contaminants are present. SERVPRO techs use several chemical agents and biocides to disinfect your home after flood damage.
When do SERVPRO Techs use Biocides During Water Cleanup After Flood Damage to your Little Rock Home?
According to the IICRC S500 guidelines, biocides should only be used in combination with cleaning and drying. SERVPRO techs use approved biocides to control the growth of microbial contamination along with drying equipment. Although many chemical agents are antimicrobial, most do not kill the wide variety of fungi and bacteria encountered in the average flood situation. Hence, it is important to choose the suitable biocide for the right case.
The IICRC states that the biocides should be used if-
- Drying is too slow and can’t prevent the growth of the microbial contaminants, and
- If any pathogenic organisms are present
SERVPRO techs use several biocides, including chlorine-based formulations, peroxide-based formulations, or formulations containing quaternary ammonium compounds.
