Sanitizing after a Flood in Paramus

Flooding potentially introduces a great deal of contamination into the home or business. Floods carry debris such as sand and dirt, various objects picked up and carried by the floodwaters, and of course, a variety of biohazards. Biohazards may include blood, human and animal waste, body fluids, microbiological waste, and pathological waste.

SERVPRO provides flood cleanup services to Paramus and surrounding areas. Some storms produce devastating damage across the state; other floods are contained in local areas affecting neighborhoods. We can respond within 4 hours on a 24/7 basis and mobilize equipment and teams at a moment's notice.

Cleanup After a Flood
The first step is to ensure the safety of the occupants and our team members. We check for electrical hazards, damage to buildings that may be dangerous to staff, and we check for debris, including biohazards that may be dangerous to humans.

We deploy truck-mounted water pumps if needed. Generators are brought in to power smaller pumps and water extractors as needed. We remove and dispose of any debris that may have been carried into the home or building. Unrestorable items are identified, recorded, and the owner notified before destroying any contents. Some items may be too damaged or contaminated and must be thrown out.

Cleaning and Drying
Depending on the extent of the damage and the contamination, flooring and walls may need to be exposed. Quick action and application help to control the growth of microbes and mold. Hard surfaces are cleaned with antimicrobial, disinfectant, or sanitizers as required. HVAC systems may be turned off, and all occupants are asked to leave during the application of these chemicals.

Complete drying and dehumidification of the structure and remaining content before restoration and reconstruction of the building begins. Every flood damage event is different and requires a variety of equipment and supplies. Our SERVPRO team is trained and has the experience to handle all flood damage events.
