Commercial Flood Damage Technicians In Phoenix Talk About Contaminated Water Issues

If the Phoenix area ever gets hit by excessive rain, the water that enters your dry cleaning business might not be safe. Whenever our SERVPRO technicians complete a commercial flood damage project, we treat the situation differently then if the source of the moisture is clean. Pollution from the air, and possibly harmful bacteria can contaminate rainwater. Water that is muddy is treated like a sewage backup because it could contain harmful bacteria and parasites that exist in the outdoors. Both types of water can cause unpleasant aromas to penetrate in your contents and building materials during a commercial flood damage loss. 

If contaminated water remains in your Phoenix area dry cleaner for too long, the odors could penetrate your customers' clothing. Anytime our SERVPRO crew mitigates a commercial flood damage project in Phoenix odor, control is a major concern. We know that not only can your carpet and building materials contain malodor particles but your equipment and customers' clothing can as well. During the restoration process, we do as much as we can to eliminate items that smell like mildew and if they still exist we carry out deodorization procedures. 

Once we arrive at your place of business and go through the proper channels to get work authorization, we begin figuring out what items got ruined by the contaminated water. In most cases, porous items like carpet and pad get removed. Next, we extract any water that remains on non-porous flooring materials or the subfloor. Then, we dry out all of your building materials and contents so that moisture levels return to preloss conditions. The subfloor then gets treated with anti-microbial chemicals and deodorized. 

We can then deodorize your building materials and your customers' items to remove any lingering foul odors. In some situations, fogging machines can get used to penetrate chemicals into fabrics. In other scenarios, we can use an ozone machine that sends out O3 particles that react with and neutralize malodor particles. 

If things are ever wet inside your dry cleaning shop after a storm, call SERVPRO of Phoenix at (480) 503-2090 as soon as you notice a problem.
