Don’t let a water loss turn into a contaminated loss
During the summer, if your business experiences a water loss where the power is shut off, the high temperatures and high humidity can cause microbes to grow much faster than one would think possible. We don’t like to think about it, but microbes are everywhere, and they can grow everywhere in your facility (wood, paper, drywall, insulation, carpet, etc.) These microbes become airborne and spread to other clean areas and create cross-contamination.
They key is to act fast to prevent a water loss job to grow into a contaminated loss. If it is possible, and safe to do so, start extracting the water and get power restored as soon as possible. Decrease the temperature and moisture in the building. If possible try to keep humidity below 60 percent.
You need a company that is qualified to avoid microbe growth. Here at SERVPRO of Decatur, we are focused on reducing business interruption, reducing claims cost and minimizing callbacks. Our crews are highly trained restoration professionals that use specialized equipment and techniques to properly remediate the problem quickly and safely.
