SERVPRO Biocides Curb Mold and Malodors from Falmouth Flood Damage

Flood damage brings more than just water into a given Falmouth property. An inch of water is enough to cause over $27,000 in damages. Cleanup of the debris, chemical residues, sewage, microbes, and pests that come with floodwaters renders a do-it-yourself cleanup solution unsafe for homeowners. Fortunately, there is a team that can assist with these disasters.

SERVPRO professionals perform flood damage cleanup for Falmouth residences 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified firm deploys EPA-registered antimicrobials to address bacteria and odors from floodwater debris and mold.

SERVPRO Sanitation Methods Salvage Flooded Properties

In a flood scenario with standing water present, SERVPRO can implement OSHA-approved biocides with pump or trigger sprayers right away. Meanwhile, extractors and submersible sump pumps eliminate the excess water. This firm has access to over 100 proprietary cleanup solutions designed to mitigate microbes and malodors.

Treatment steps for flood-damaged surfaces include:

  • Applying sanitation solutions directly to salvageable flooring. Flood-damaged carpet and pad requires removal and replacement.
  • Careful cleaning of home contents, either on-site or in a SERVPRO warehouse after a pack-out
  • Establishing negative air pressure to prevent the spread of mold spores and other odor-causing microbes
  • Wet cleaning for salvageable walls entails the manual application of cleaning solution from bottom to top, followed by a rinse solution and towel-drying

SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands performs fast-acting mitigation and restoration that makes homes feel “Like it never even happened.” Call (508) 548-1011 at any time of the day or night for service.
