Cleaning and Sanitizing Services

Why are Cleaning and Sanitizing Important?

Cleaning and sanitizing are essential steps in the water damage restoration process. Without it, your home may look good and habitable, yet, it will contain microorganisms and contaminants that can result in health problems.

Cleaning and sanitizing are the processes of removing and destroying harmful bacteria, viruses, allergens, and other contaminants using disinfectants and eliminating odors using deodorizers.

Some people mistake jumping straight into repairs after the drying and dehumidifying step, which comes before this one. The problem is that the whole goal of water damage restoration is to restore your home or business to its pre-damage condition. And that includes the healthy state it was in before the damage.

Without cleaning and sanitizing your building, you will have a home or business that is a breeding ground for all types of health issues – diseases, sickness, and infections. These contaminants can also cause your belongings to decay, resulting in more expensive repairs down the road.

Since these steps are critical to having a clean and safe environment after the restoration work is complete, you must let the professionals handle it. The monetary savings and health risks it will help you avert are all worth it. These microorganisms multiply rapidly. If your home isn’t properly sanitized, you will soon have a bacteria, fungi, or virus-infested house, while believing your place is safe and healthy.

What do Cleaning and Sanitizing entail?

Cleaning is the removal of dirt, dust, grime, stains, and other visible contaminants from surfaces. Sanitizing is the elimination or, at least, reduction of microorganisms in your home to levels that are considered safe for human contact. After the water extraction and drying and dehumidification steps, your home should be cleaned and sanitized before you move back in. To achieve a sanitized house, we use disinfectants and detergent-based cleaners to kill germs and contaminants while cleaning. The cleaning can take several forms, including spray cleaning, wipe cleaning, wet cleaning, and dry cleaning. The cleaning and sanitizing processes typically include cleaning, sanitizing, drying of areas where we used wet cleaning, mold removal, and deodorization. It involves cleaning both soft, porous surfaces and hard, non-porous ones like floors, furniture, walls, and more. When performing services such as cleaning and sanitizing, the health of the cleaner is also very crucial. If you opt to do any cleaning after water damage yourself, you need to protect yourself from the harmful microorganisms that can make you sick. Always wear protective equipment like gloves and a respirator when handling toxic chemicals like fungicides, sanitizers, and disinfectants.

Why you Need the Professional Cleaners from Water Damage Restoration Heroes

There are many reasons why you should call Water Damage Restoration Heroes to provide you with professional cleaners instead of doing it yourself.

The cleaning and sanitizing process is crucial to the health and safety of the home after restoration. But it is also one that requires a lot of attention to detail. As a result, it can be time-consuming. It is not something that can be done haphazardly.

Most of the other phases of the water damage restoration process focus on the aspects of your home’s restoration that can be seen and felt. These include removing standing or absorbed water from floors, basements, and furniture as in the water extraction and drying and dehumidifying process. Others focus on replacing the structural components of your home that were damaged by water, e.g., drywall and insulation. Cleaning and sanitizing are the only parts of the process that eliminates things you cannot really see.

While the other stages of the water damage restoration process also require expertise, cleaning and sanitizing require it even more. It is so crucial to human health and that of pets that it is not something you want to leave to chance or amateurs.

These are two of the phases of the water damage restoration process that has to be performed by professionals who are trained in the safety and sanitizing requirements of a home or building damaged by water. The process poses a lot of health risks and exposure to the people involved in the cleaning process.
