Health and safety are always at the forefront
To protect the health of building occupants, it is vital that our team is able to assess all damage and evaluate all contaminated materials. Our crews take every precaution to ensure the safety of all those affected, as well as their own, throughout this process. All building occupants will be advised of any potential risks and receive guidance about entering and navigating the area.
Our restoration specialists examine all possible areas of decontamination, including places that are undetectable to the naked eye, such as HVAC systems. Failure to do so can lead to issues in the future, as contaminants can live and spread in the ductwork.
Once the emergency site is secured and all contaminated materials are removed, a decision can be made regarding the use of biocides as part of the clean-up and restoration process. The use of biocides may or may not be warranted. Biocides can slow microbial growth and aid in sanitizing contaminated materials, but they can also cause eye and respiratory irritation, and may emit a strong and unpleasant odor. Determining the proper application rate can be difficult, but our team is trained and equipped to do so.
What We Do
Our crews evaluate the site and discard all contaminated materials, then devise a strategy with an emphasis placed on health, safety and the environment.
Types of microbe, extent of contamination, environmental conditions and potential risk are all analyzed, sterilized and sanitized by our decontamination team before moving forward.
