We Act As Quick As Possible In Jamestown After A Flood
Controlling the Spread of Contamination in a Flood Damaged Jamestown Property
The dirty nature of floodwater involves much more than just soils invading your home. Microbes of all kinds also get pushed into your Jamestown property. We must remove the majority of these microbes as early as possible to protect both people and your property from harm. Unavoidable activities, such as walking across a floor or moving equipment, can spread contamination. We use specific measures to counter the spread of contamination effectively.
Removing debris saturated with contaminated water can also spread contamination within your house in Jamestown during flood damage mitigation. However, we must do this as quickly as possible. We use double bags to contain wet carpets and other damaged materials better. Our technicians carry out foreign debris in bags, as well as in large buckets, after using shovels and rakes to clean your floors.
Plastic sheeting helps contain contaminants that might travel with the help of air currents. Cutting drywall and tearing away ruined sections from the framework can send dust and other pollutants into the air. Building a temporary containment system around the area first can minimize the number of particles that spread to other areas of the house. We use both negative pressure and HEPA filtration to make such systems even more efficient.
Other situations call for the removal of materials to open up spaces so we can decontaminate the interior area. Stairwells can hold flood water and allow it to migrate to other areas of your property for months after a flood. We remove as little as possible to allow us access to dry out and disinfect the interior.
Similarly, we build decontamination chambers that allow us to clean up our clothing, shoes, and equipment before moving them into previously cleaned areas of your home. Decontaminating involves the use of disinfectant sprays, bagging up personal protective equipment (PPE), and changing filters. Other chambers help us cleanup items so your family can use them again, without needing to box them up for cleaning at our facility. These are typically items that your family needs as soon as possible.
