Flood waters and raw sewage may contain bacteria, blood born pathogens and other organisms which are extremely hazardous to human health. These can be transmitted by touching contaminated items or by tracking them in uncontaminated areas on shoes. ShawMills Restoration is trained to properly handle such risks and remove and restore properly. For this reason, absorbent materials such as carpeting and drywall may not be restorable after direct contact with contaminated water.
Additionally, during a flood clean-up the air quality in the affected area may appear to be the least of your problems, however, there could be cause for concern. We will use the latest air scrubbing and disinfecting technologies in the event such treatment is required.
Qualified cleaning technicians use the latest technologies and equipment to properly diagnose and eradicate odours from surfaces. Through immediate cleaning combined with the use of our specialized equipment, we can remove bacteria, organic compounds and/or chemical compounds, which are often the source of the odour.
