Water Damage Restoration In Orlando Requires Chemicals That Contain Certain Active Ingredients

12/17/2019 (Permalink)

An open ceiling with exposed piping and water damage. SERVPRO knows what your Orlando home will need immediately after a water damage, to keep from having further damage.

Orlando when you have water damage, it will need professional restoration.

If your condo in Orlando ever suffers from any type of moisture-related problem, many procedures must be taken to prevent secondary issues. When moisture comes into direct contact with your contents and building materials, primary water damage can result. However, other things can go wrong inside your residence even in parts of your structure that did not directly touch any liquid. These issues are considered secondary, but they can prove to be devastating sometimes.

Secondary problems include problems related to high humidity levels and mold growth. Whenever our SERVPRO team mitigates water damage in Orlando, we take measures to prevent secondary issues from occurring. These types of problems can be eliminated when your primary issues get addressed promptly. The number one goal is to remove moisture from your building materials and contents as quickly as possible before fungi can grow, or your indoor humidity levels can rise to a dangerous point.

In addition to extraction and applied structural drying or ASD methods our SERVPRO technicians can apply, we can also utilize several industrial chemicals to help prevent mold growth and other types of contamination. All of the products we use utilize the following four main active ingredients to prevent fungal formations or to disinfect.

  1. Phenolics

Phenolics are alcohol-based agents that are usually diluted by water and can be used as disinfectants and antimicrobials.

  1. Quaternary Compounds

Quaternary-based chemicals can be effectively used to clean and sanitize by rupturing the cell walls of microorganisms and destroying them.

  1. Glutaraldehydes

These agents are often used during leather tanning and food processing procedures. Chemical mixtures that have a concentration of 2% or more of glutaraldehydes can work to kill spores, viruses, and bacteria if enough application time is given.

  1. Chlorine

Bleach is the most common product used that contains chlorine. Any solution containing chlorine can be useful as a germicide, but the chemical can cause staining and discoloration on certain materials.

Most restoration projects require a mix of professional methods and techniques, as well as the use of different types of chemical products. For professional assistance after any type of water leak occurs inside your home, call SERVPRO of West Orange at (407) 352-1569 any time of the day. We can restore your home to its preloss state, "Like it never even happened."
