Tackling Microbial Growth during Water Damage Restoration of your Coral Springs Home

Careful containment of a water issue can play a vital role in mitigating losses. By working methodically, you cannot only achieve a thorough restoration but keep replacement materials to a minimum. As a homeowner, containment may be as simple as closing or blocking doorways as well as moving light furniture or electronics away from the affected area. If you do decide to move items out of the affected area, laying down a protective covering to temporarily place items can reduce the risk of cross-contamination.

To efficiently tackle water damage in your Coral Springs home, you may want to focus first on preventing water migration. Water migration can lengthen the restoration task requiring complex equipping and invasive procedures to gain access to cavities or other areas. SERVPRO technicians can use light wand extractors to carefully dry the outer regions of a room and halt water migration. At the same time, the remaining moisture is dealt with using air movers or dehumidification.

Water incidents can exponentially increase the harm to your home over time because of microbes. Microbes are living organisms that can reproduce in wet conditions and cause permanent damage to the porous materials in your home environment. The most common microbial infestation is mold. However, bacteria and viruses can also be present in water. With temperature, water, and food supply, these microbial organisms can quickly grow out of control producing unpleasant odors or soiling on your contents.

Acting quickly to remove moisture is an effective preventative measure against microbial growth, but there are also deterrents and cleaning agents capable of destroying these contaminants. The restoration trucks SERVPRO use contain a full-range of chemical compounds to combat microbial growth. Disinfectants are useful in destroying microbial organisms. Anti-microbial compounds may also be necessary as a deterrent against future mold growth, which SERVPRO can apply to carpets and upholstery using pressure sprays or misters.
