According to a survey commissioned by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), more than eighty (80) percent of homeowners state that how clean their floors are is a major factor in their family’s health.
However, only fifteen (15) percent of homeowners have their carpets cleaned every year.
Odor remediation is a major component of preventing airborne contaminants from affecting the family’s health inside the home.
Flood Pro of Florida uses a variety of techniques and equipment to eliminate odors, including air scrubbers, ozone generators, thermal fogging, and enzymatic cleaners. The specific methods used will depend on the type of odor and the source of the problem.
Here are some common steps we follow during our process.
Cleaning: The first step in sanitization is cleaning the surfaces to remove any visible dirt, dust, or debris. This can be done using soap and water, followed by a disinfectant.
Disinfecting: The second step involves applying a disinfectant solution to the surfaces to kill or inactivate any remaining microorganisms. Different disinfectants may be used depending on the type of surface and the level of contamination.
Drying: After applying the disinfectant, the surfaces should be allowed to dry completely to ensure maximum effectiveness. This also helps prevent the growth of new microorganisms.
Ventilation: Proper ventilation is important to ensure that the air in the space is circulating and not stagnant. This can be achieved through opening windows, using fans, or adjusting the HVAC system.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Depending on the type of microorganisms and the level of exposure, workers may need to wear appropriate PPE like gloves, masks, and gowns to protect themselves and prevent the spread of infection.
Quality control: Regular testing and monitoring may be required to ensure that the sanitization process is effective in reducing the number of microorganisms present.
Sanitization protocols can vary depending on the specific needs of the space and the types of microorganisms present. It's important to follow the guidance of public health authorities, I.I.C.R.C. & N.O.R.M.I. policies and procedures and consult with Flood Pro of Florida to determine the appropriate sanitization protocols for your space.
