SERVPRO Offers Fast and Efficient Service After Flood Damage to North Syracuse Homes

Contamination can be a major issue after flood damage to your North Syracuse home. SERVPRO technicians can safely handle contaminated water after flooding incidents and prevent any long-term problems associated with it.  

SERVPRO technicians often have to deal with contaminated water after flood damage to North Syracuse homes. The most important goal while providing water damage repairs in such situations is to ensure the safety of the technicians and the occupants. The SERVPRO flood restoration experts use different types of antimicrobial agents to control the microbial load of the floodwater. Our technicians also use proper personal protective equipment (PPE) during the water damage restoration. 

What are Some of the Chemical Agents that SERVPRO Techs Use During Flood Restoration in North Syracuse? 

SERVPRO technicians use various chemical agents during the water damage remediation after a flooding event in North Syracuse. Most of them are categorized into the following two categories-

  • -stats: These are chemical agents that do not necessarily kill the microbes but prevent them from growing. Most common -stats that SERVPRO techs use are fungistats and mildewstats. 
  • -cides: These are chemical agents that destroy or kill living microbes. For instance, a bactericide is a chemical agent that can kill bacteria. 

It is worth knowing that in the restoration industry, a more common term used is 'biocide,' which is used to identify any chemical substance that can affect the growth of microbes, including bacteria and fungi. A biocide can be either a -stat or a -cide.
