Our Experts Explain Why We Include Decontamination During Our Water Damage Restoration Process In Kalispell
Why SERVPRO Water Cleanup Specialists Include Decontamination Methods In Kalispell
Water loss events that affect the inside your Kalispell property from a broken pipe, open window during a storm, or flooding rapidly make your home a hazardous, and possibly unlivable, place. While clean water does not immediately carry the risk of contamination, microbes multiply at extremely rapid rates in such situations.
The presence of microbes, including bacteria, is why SERVPRO's water cleanup technicians in Kalispell begin such jobs with decontamination methods. While we use PPE (personal protection equipment) that keeps us safe, cross-contamination can infect previously unaffected areas with these microbes. Later, this can become a problem for us and your family. Stopping such cross-contamination protects everyone from unwanted health effects that contact with such microbes can cause.
When flooding occurs, we know that such contamination exists. Black water, or Category 3, always contains such microorganisms. Clean water rarely contains anything that can cause harm, and gray water, also known as Category 2, contains some but not in the enormous amounts that black water holds. With time passing, the microbes already present in gray water, as well as in clean water, steadily multiply, eventually leading to black water conditions.
The inevitable changing of clean and gray water to Category 3 does not need to occur. When homeowners call us about such situations, SERVPRO is Faster to Any Size Disaster, making it possible for us to stop the water present in your home from ever reaching more contaminated stages.
Removing the water left with small-sized extraction wands, using our drying equipment, airing out heavy furniture, and starting the cleaning process on your carpeted areas and other flooring types make it possible to save your home from worsening microbial populations. Drying things out keeps water damage from increasing in both area and degree.
Our water cleanup crews know how to stop the effects from happening inside your home, including those that protect your home's air. Call SERVPRO of Flathead County at (406) 300-0435, so we can protect your home for you.
