SERVPRO Can Handle Any Size Flood Damage in Nampa

Flooding after a storm can create a messy situation that needs professionals like SERVPRO to remediate. The flood damage to your Nampa home is not only caused by the accumulated water but also due to the contamination it brings. Professional restorers have the right tools and knowledge to tackle such contaminated waters safely. 

SERVPRO techs adhere to the IICRC S500 standard during flood damage restoration of your Nampa home. We use biocides to control and limit the growth of the microorganisms whenever their use is appropriate, according to the S500 standard. SERVPRO only uses EPA-registered biocides during the restoration process.

When do SERVPRO Techs use Biocides During Flood Restoration of Your Nampa Home?

SERVPRO techs carefully consider the necessity of biocide use during the water damage restoration of your Nampa home. The objective of the restoration process is to eliminate all microbial growth. Often, this is accomplished by physically removing the contaminated material or by a thorough cleaning with an appropriate cleaning agent. SERVPRO techs might not consider the use of biocides in such situations. 

However, under certain conditions, the use of biocides is unavoidable. The two situations in which SERVPRO techs do use biocides include:

  • The drying rate is too slow and is unable to prevent the microbial growth
  • Pathogenic organisms are already present in the floodwater.

If the drying rate is too slow, there is enough moisture present to support the development of the microbes, and biocides are the only way to prevent it from happening.

SERVPRO never uses biocides as a primary step to control contamination during flood restoration. Techs instead rely on rapid drying and removal of contaminated material for an efficient way to combat contamination.
