Restoring Your Possessions After Water Damage in Lafayette
Your possessions are just as important as your Lafayette structure after water damage.
A leak in your home, while you are away, can result in extensive damage. Wet and damaged items are challenging to deal with and often require specific care. It can be unnerving to see prized possessions or family heirlooms in a state of disarray. Sometimes, removing the items and cleaning them off site while you repair your home is the best option, especially if the damaged goods have been wet for a more extended period becoming soiled or fostering mold growth.
Having water damage in your Lafayette home requires specialized cleanup to ensure proper care and return of the contents of your home. SERVPRO has a secure storage location to house and clean your items while your home undergoes repairs. Contents identified as ASAP or rush items are dealt with first and returned as quickly as possible to ensure the least amount of disruption to your life as possible.
Contents move through the SERVPRO warehouse in an organized fashion. First, technicians bring the items to the staging area to sort and inventory the items. Contents management labels track items as they move through the cleaning and deodorization process to ensure proper care and timely return.
Some items, such as wet or contaminated items, are kept separate to make sure there is no cross-contamination like the spreading of mold or dangerous bacteria. Technicians use an antimicrobial agent such as the EPA-registered disinfectant Sporidin to limit or stop microorganism growth.
When cleaning items, SERVPRO technicians consider Time, Agitation, Chemicals, and Temperature (TACT). The more soiled the item is, the longer the cleaning agent dwells on the surface of the object. The next step is to agitate the object, often through the use of an industrial ultrasonic cleaner to dislodge the soil from the item. If the item is a textile or drapery, agitation may be adjusted. Too much agitation may cause woven textiles to unravel. The temperature of the cleaning products may also require adjustment as every cleaning product functions best at a specific temperature. Typically, heat makes the chemical action between the cleaning solution and soil speed up and clean faster.
