The Right Cleaning Product for Your Flooded Frederick Home

In natural flooding situations, many of the exposed construction materials and contents must get removed and discarded when contamination of your Frederick home occurs. Surface elements, like drywall and flooring, are often unsalvageable, even with the fast and confident response of our flood recovery professionals. Protecting the framework and support materials requires cleaning and disinfection of these areas so that build back can happen more efficiently when the mitigation phase completes.

Our owner Art Hall has brought his decades of construction experience to help recover flood damage in Frederick homes, but these steps cannot begin without the controlled demolition and initial cleaning of the exposed areas. Selecting the correct cleaning product for the job depends on multiple factors. We must determine the type of material damaged by microbes and bacteria and the appropriate product to address these concerns.

These solutions can destroy 99 percent of the organisms they contact when applied to surfaces. Germicides like this can help to clear out harmful microorganisms on the surface of the exposed framework after drywall, flooring, and ceiling tiling has gotten removed. Depending on the circumstances, however, they may not affect all of the bacterial or fungal spores, which can often be dormant.

Biocides and Sporicides
These products have gotten designed to eliminate active organisms that can be dangerous for your home or property. Biocides and sporicides target different microbes, meaning that different products might need to get used together to achieve the desired results. Once active spores on the surface have gotten eliminated through the application and cleaning by our SERVPRO professionals, we can bring in our licensed general contractors to begin build back of the property safely.

Preventing flood exposure to your home and its construction materials is unfeasible when water penetrates openings and vulnerabilities in the lower levels of your residence. Addressing these concerns involves the knowledgeable team of trained professionals who understand the variances in our cleaning products and solvents to provide the best and safest approach every time.
