Using Ozone Generators to Remove Harmful Particles from Storm Damage Site in Nutley
When A Storm Damages Your Property, SERVPRO is Here to Help
When floodwaters enter your property, the situation has to be treated as a Biohazardous waste site. That means specially equipped technicians with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) possible temporary relocation and substantial loss recovery procedure. Since Biohazardous wastes are considered exceptionally dangerous to human health, you need a restoration service that can handle a large loss site. As well as one that you can trust to perform the necessary actions to return the home to a safe environment. We operate professional services with advanced equipment to get your home back to how it was before the storm incident.
A flood as a result of storm damage in your Nutley home is not an uncommon chain of events, but it can be stressful and debilitating for a homeowner. You can rely on SERVPRO to send professionally trained and equipped technicians to the job site to perform advanced loss reduction and mitigation procedures. In a Biohazardous water incident, there may also be a need to demolish, remove, and dispose of various materials in the home that have come into contact with floodwater. This includes drywall, furnishings, fittings, and fabrics.
Salvageable contents, along with structure, need to be thoroughly disinfected to remove the possibility of harmful pathogens remaining in the property. Industrial strength cleaning agents need to be applied both to the immediately affected area as well as any areas that flood water may have migrated. Containment zones, as well as decontamination rooms, can be set up to avoid spreading harmful pathogens around during the service, thereby controlling losses.
Even after a thorough disinfecting of the home, odor particles can linger. Sewer gases, in particular, are a danger to your health, which is why SERVPRO technicians wear masks or PPE suits when working on a loss recovery job. One advantage of a vacant property is that we can deploy Ozone generators in the home. These machines release an unstable O3 gas that permanently alters the indoor environment and the particles within. Using an ozone generator is advantageous because it eliminates the odor as well as killing or removing harmful particles that may be present as a result of sewer gases or black water.
