Why SERVPRO Is The Leader In Flood Damage Restoration In St. Petersburg
The Safe Removal of Black Water in Flood Damage for St. Petersburg Residents
A road overflow can cause significant damage to your property. Usually the result of heavy rainfall, road overflows send flood water contaminated with raw sewage or other pesticides into your home which requires immediate professional assistance. We are a licensed service that can provide an adequate response to the presence of black water in your home; allowing you to get on with your everyday life as quickly as possible.
When we are called to a property to repair flood damage in St. Petersburg, the first concern is the type of water we are dealing with. A visual inspection is vital to ensuring the correct safety equipment and tools are provided for the full service. High levels of contamination are known as black water and could contain animal carcasses, herbicides, pesticides, or raw sewage.
Black water poses a serious threat to your health. SERVPRO technicians can cordon off the affected zone using physical barriers and establish a quarantine for your safety. Since black water is a biohazardous waste, many materials may need removal, packaging, and disposal before being replaced at the end of service-when contamination is completely removed.
Porous materials are especially vulnerable. Carpets, as well as sections of drywall, may need to be removed including the subfloor mat for disposal. Valuable materials can be packed out by SERVPRO and treated with Esporta washing machines to sanitize them. Equally, we can use immersion tanks for denser items which restore them using ultrasonic cleaning technology. These advanced equipment are effective at salvaging items you may not have thought salvageable.
Black water also causes unpleasant odors to permeate the home. The biocides, bleaches, and chlorine that we may use to disinfect the site also carry a thick odor. Your SERVPRO technician can fumigate the whole of the home using thermal foggers. This equipment attaches to odor particles and neutralizes them leaving your home smelling clean and fresh, "Like it never even happened" after flood damage.
