Do I need to disinfect my home after flash flooding?
Floodwaters are different from the water that leaks from a faucet. Typically, floodwaters have a high concentration of bacteria which can set up house in your home and multiply rapidly. Your water restoration process must include sanitizing and disinfection to avoid the proliferation of microorganisms. Our SERVPRO team incorporates those steps as they are essential to a successful job. When our crew arrives wearing its personal protective equipment, we assess the scope of the damage and outline each step to achieve restoration. Water extraction, drying, sanitizing, and disinfecting are building blocks in protecting your home.
Some disinfecting methods available to our SERVPRO crew may include the following-
- Thermal foggers- this equipment lets us saturate your home with disinfectant and create a fog that penetrates hard to reach corners and personal belongings.
- Ultra-low volume foggers- these foggers can be portable and disinfect the air in your home before falling onto your furniture and other surfaces. They can be quicker than other techniques.
- Anti-bacterial solutions- we apply these solutions by following guidelines established by the EPA and recommended use by their manufacturers. Disinfecting solutions can be beneficial when treating surfaces directly.
