Mitigation Tips: (Perform only when structure has been cleared as safe.)

  • Take the greatest caution while entering your home, and wear sturdy shoes and protective clothing when dealing with flooded areas. Wear protective clothing at all times.

  • Take photos or video to record conditions of collections and structure. Make sure images clearly record damage.

  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.

  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removing lamps and tabletop items.

  • Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions for even drying.

  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.

  • Remove any paintings, art objects, documents and other sensitive materials to a safe, dry place.

  • Place fans at 45-degree angles to walls and move large furniture away from walls to create the best air circulation.

  • Appoint a media liaison to report conditions and need for help/volunteers. You may have to limit access to collections.

  • Do not enter rooms with standing water where electrical shock hazards may exist.
    Do not attempt to operate any electrical equipment while standing in wet or damp locations.

  • Do not leave books, newspapers, magazines or other colored items on wet carpets or floors to cause staining.

Storm Damage FLOOD TIPS AND ACTION STEPS FLOOD TIPS AND ACTION STEPS

AFTER A FLOOD

SAFETY FIRST (For businesses and home owners)

  • Account that all employees or family members are safe by establishing evacuation plans in advance, identifying areas outside the building that are designated meeting places. Assign select individuals to keep a list of their assigned team’s names and contact numbers in order to account for their whereabouts.
  • If water enters the building and evacuation becomes impossible, move to an upper floor, and wait for rescuers.
  • While evacuating, avoid attempting to drive through floods or rising water, nearly half of all flash flood fatalities are auto-related.
  • Do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing in water.
  • Do not walk through moving water. Even six inches of moving water can make you fall.
  • Use no open flames (there may be gas escaping from ruptured mains).
  • Avoid floodwaters. Water may be contaminated by oil, gasoline or raw sewage. Water may also be electrically charged. If the water has entered the structure through the flooding of a creek, stream or river, or if it has filtered through insulation during its intrusion, it is considered to be black water and could be hazardous to your health. Avoid contact with contaminated items as much as possible.
  • Stay out of any building if it is surrounded by floodwaters.
  • Listen for news reports to learn if the community’s water supply is safe to drink.
  • Return only when authorities indicate it is safe.

SERVPRO of Manchester-East Knows application of Professional Products

Microbes always exist within our indoor environments. As part of the ecological system, microbes are necessary for life and cannot be completely eliminated from indoor environments by the application of chemical agents. Restoration vendors should not assume they are eliminating microbes from a structure by applying biocide or antimicrobial products.

Human health may be threatened when microbes amplify and grow in indoor environments. When water is present in an environment due to a water damage incident, microbes will grow given enough time and the proper conditions. If a Category 1 sanitary water situation is unmitigated for two to three days, microbes will likely amplify, increasing contamination of the structure and turning the Category 1 situation into a Category 2 or 3 situation. Building owners, occupants, and insurers should act quickly to prevent microbial contamination from becoming worse with passing time.

Steps in Controlling Microbial Growth

5/9/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Steps in Controlling Microbial Growth Microbial Growth based on moisture and temperature

The application of chemical agents should not be the restoration vendor’s primary method of controlling microbial growth. Since the presence of water promotes and sustains microbial growth, the primary steps in mitigation or remediation are (1) removing moisture by drying the environment and reducing humidity levels and (2) removing contaminated materials. Water damage restoration professionals should focus on fast drying of the structure (to reduce moisture levels) and not consider the application of chemical agents by themselves to be effective remediation of microbial contamination.

The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) points out that restorers are not effective if their only step is applying chemical agents (biocides) and they do not perform the more important steps of rapid drying and removal of contaminated materials:

“Effective remediation of water damaged or microbially contaminated buildings involves (a) the use of appropriate techniques to promote rapid drying, and (b) complete removal of contaminated materials rather than the application of biocides without these steps” (ACGIH Bioaerosals: Assessment and Control – publication #3180).

The longer water dwells in a structure, being absorbed by materials, the more damage it causes.
