Buffalo Grove Water Removal Kills Harmful Microbes

Flood-related microbes are a serious threat to your Buffalo Grove home if it is ever inundated by stormwater. Special procedures, chemicals, and equipment are necessary to effectively clean up these troublesome microorganisms. Fortunately, SERVPRO has the requisite experience and everything else necessary to successfully prevent these tiny pests from ruining your residence. 

SERVPRO is Buffalo Grove’s go-to water removal service. In addition to doing basic water removal work, we also offer complete flood restoration that includes biohazard remediation like sewage cleanup, basement flooding clearing, and extensive water damage repairs. Once at your home, our trained professionals work to eliminate harmful bacteria and other microscopic threats by:

  • First, treating floodwater-impacted environments with a broad spectrum, EPA-registered biocide before work begins to make them safer to operate in
  • Next, discarding any contaminated furnishings and materials to facilitate the remediation process and rapidly removing any standing water with powerful extractors
  • Then, diligently working to reduce and keep interior relative humidity levels below sixty percent with state-of-the-art air movers, dehumidifiers, and Injectidry systems 
  • Simultaneously, using air conditioning units to keep indoor temperatures below forty degrees Fahrenheit to inhibit bacterial growth and limit its effects
  • Later, treating all impacted surfaces and materials a second time with cutting-edge disinfectants, ensuring that chemical agents are mixed correctly, applied appropriately to affected materials and surfaces, and allowed to remain on items for enough time
  • Finally, fogging interior areas with antimicrobials and deodorants to neutralize any remaining harmful microorganisms in the air and eliminate unpleasant smells 

After these measures have been taken, your home has usually been protected from further issues related to the current flood event. Ultimately, SERVPRO’s efforts help residents and restore the livability of their residences.

With that said, whenever you need fast and effective water removal services, remember your helpful neighbors at SERVPRO of Buffalo Grove/Lake Zurich. We are always ready for your call at (847) 279-1940.
