Recovering From Flood Damage in Destin
As a Florida resident, you are no stranger to intense weather and natural disasters. Between hurricanes and heavy summer rain and thunderstorms, flooding may occur. Flooding can cause damage to your home and should be adequately cleaned to mitigate secondary damage, such as mold infestations and lingering foul odors.
If you experience flood damage in your Destin home, contact the trained SERVPRO professionals to help you with the cleanup after the floodwaters recede. Often, the cleanup is the most challenging part of a flood. Floodwater is considered black water or category 3 water, potentially contaminated with disease-infected organisms and contaminated chemicals. Blackwater is not necessarily the color black; the category is based on the source of the water. Floodwaters are always considered blackwater.
Technicians take extreme safety precautions to ensure protection for homeowners as well as themselves using personal protective equipment (PPE) while they extract remaining moisture, remove damaged contents, and disinfect the home. They also treat flood water contaminated environments with biocides two times, once at the beginning of the cleaning process, and once at the end to ensure the most thorough cleaning possible.
Biocides are cleaning agents that kill any organisms contained in the black water deterring the growth of mold. Specifically, virucides kill viruses, and fungicides kill mold. SERVPRO technicians also use antimicrobial cleaners called phenolics as a defense against bacteria and fungi. Some phenolic products are OSHA compliant for Bloodborne Pathogens and serve as another form of protection against disease and mold infestations. We hold licenses in mold remediation: MRSR309, and MRSR377, keeping us current in mold elimination techniques.
The trained professionals at SERVPRO treat each flood damage situation differently and come up with a customized plan to ensure the least amount of damage as possible. The goal is to restore as much as possible without having to replace items that could otherwise be salvaged. An essential part of the plan includes extremely precautious cleanup methods to ensure the health and safety of your home and family.
