Biohazardous Water Damage

3/6/2017 (Permalink)

Any water damage in your home is bad. Especially when the water contains potentially harmful bacteria that can affect the health of your family and the value of your home. Toilet over-flows, sewage backups and other dark water intrusions are more than nasty, smelly messes; these biohazardous damages also introduce harmful microorganisms into a home, as well as the moisture necessary to support their growth.

A mop and common household cleaning products may not be enough for black water intrusions. SERVPRO of Tacoma specialists are trained to safely clean and restore your home utilizing the following procedures:

  • Identify the Source/Type of water
  • Measure temperature and humidity for drying analysis

  • Provide floor service
  • Inspect carpet pad/carpet and provide service
  • Apply necessary treatments (disinfectants/deodorization)
  • Utilize drying equipment and monitor drying
