What is Cleaning and Sanitizing and Why is it Important?
Cleaning and sanitization after water damage is the process of removing all harmful bacteria and contaminants from the home so that none of it is allowed to grow or affect humans, animals, or objects after restoration is complete.
Water-related damage such as floods, pipe leaks, and sewage backup often involve contaminants. These contaminants can include anything from harmful bacteria and fungi to toxic chemicals. If you skip the cleaning and sanitization process, you will have a home that is a breeding ground for all kinds of diseases and infections. These could range from mild to severe health issues. Besides being a threat to the life and health of both humans and pets, these contaminants can result in further damage to property and belongings.
These contaminants, especially the living microorganisms, such as fungi and bacteria, often multiply very fast. If your house is inadequately sanitized, you can be fooled into thinking you have a safe and healthy environment. You wouldn’t know that you have a home where harmful microorganisms multiply fast and can pose severe threats to your health, and even life.
In order to carry out the clean-up process as fast as possible and with confidence in a successful outcome, you should hire a professional damage restoration company to handle things for you. Cleaning and sanitizing your home or building after water damage is too crucial to handle by yourself, except you have the relevant training. The health problems involved if you don’t do a good job yourself are too much to risk.
What does Cleaning and Sanitizing entail?
The cleaning and sanitizing process comes after water extraction and drying and dehumidifying. It involves removing any remaining residue of dust and cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces that the water touched. These include materials that got wet in the process, furniture, and appliances. It also includes washing all fabrics and clothes with detergent-based cleaners that kill all contaminants, including bacteria.
When we handle your cleaning and sanitization, we generally do it in one or more forms. These forms include
- Dry cleaning
- Wet cleaning and
- Spray and wipe cleaning
The cleaning and sanitization process generally includes:
- Drying (where we used wet cleaning)
- Deodorizing and
- Mold removal
It is crucial to test for and remove mold as part of this process, especially when the water we removed was long-standing or the water damage problem has been in your home for a while.
If you have a mold problem in your home or workplace, cleaning and sanitizing is a crucial process as well since it battles the growth of black mildew fungi and microorganisms.
Cleaning and Sanitizing will also ensure that your home is free of chemical residue and other harmful materials left behind by the water damage problem in the first place.
You may want to consider professional assistance when doing this kind of work, just to be sure you’re using the right cleaning agents for specific surfaces and avoiding any damage to those surfaces as well.
There are some products designed for this process, such as Lysol’s Mold and Mildew Remover, Formula 24 Enzyme Cleaner and Deodorizer, and Concrobium Mold Control.
