SERVPRO Addresses Flooding in Orlando Homes

Cleaning up after a flood is different from cleaning up from a water leak. Floodwater is contaminated (category 3- black water) and needs careful handling to ensure safety for the homeowner and SERVPRO technicians.

SERVPRO understands flood removal processes in Orlando, including the use of appropriate chemical cleaning agents. Many cleaning agents work in other situations, but only specific types kill the numerous fungi and bacteria found in typical flooding situations.

Cleaning agents for flooding:

  • Phenolics: Made from coal tar derivatives or synthetics and is highly effective against many kinds of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. They can lose their strength over time, so technicians are sure to use recently produced phenolics.
  • Chlorines: Strong oxidizing agents that have low toxicity and are useful in flood situations. 
  • Quaternary Compounds: Ammonia is the most common type and is also very effective. 
  • Botanicals: Pleasant fragrance cleaning agent that incorporates thyme oil or citric acid and is still effective. 

After a flood, Contact SERVPRO of South Orange County at (407) 226-2621 for 24/7 assistance. We make it, “Like it never even happened.”
