Why Does SERVPRO Specialize In Antimicrobial Treatments?

3/9/2022 (Permalink)

The restoration and remediation industry is a specialized one indeed. Rapid advancement in the techniques and technology used in the industry has been occurring for the past few decades. SERVPRO, as an industry leader, is on top of its game and completely familiar with any and all techniques, technologies, treatments, chemicals, and more. To get your property back to the condition it was in before your loss, we operate effectively, reliably, and quickly.

In many cases where water damage is or was a problem, more than simple staining may occur. Any time that liquid is involved, mold can end up being a result, as well. In cases where mold and other contaminants are present, specialized treatment must be used. Here, antimicrobial treatments are a recommended method.

Treatments That Discourage Germs

Antimicrobial treatments, germicides, and sanitizing agents can be used to treat areas as part of the remediation process following water damage. To remove contaminants and/or odors from your property, and clean it thoroughly, cleaning agents that are approved by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will likely be required.

SERVPRO uses the following:

  • To control excessive odors, deodorization products are utilized.
  • To stop the growth of mildew, fungi, bacteria, and other microorganisms considered harmful, disinfection products are utilized.

Finding The Problem

Before drying and follow-up treatment can begin on an area that has been affected by moisture, it must be detected in the first place.

Sometimes, but not always, it's evident when an area of your home has been damaged by moisture. Professionals use the latest technology where measurement equipment and moisture detection are concerned. We use specialized equipment to measure, detect, and monitor the moisture levels in a property. We can detect water through a floor, ceiling, or wall thanks to infrared cameras and other recent advances.

SERVPRO uses the following:

  • The moisture saturation extent is measured by hygrometers, sensitive moisture detectors, and other meters.
  • For thorough water removal, the water or moisture location is identified, quite possibly with the use of an infrared camera.
