SERVPRO offers a premier water mitigation service to commercial properties in Morgan Hills

One of the biggest problems with unmitigated water damage to any commercial property is the chance of microbial contamination. If water mitigation of your Morgan Hill establishment does not happen fast, it can create a conducive environment for microbes to grow and thrive. SERVPRO restorers use various drying methods in combination with professional water damage restoration products to prevent this from happening. 

The application of antimicrobial agents is not SERVPRO’s primary method of controlling microbial growth during water mitigation of Morgan Hill properties. Since water promotes and sustains microbial growth, the preliminary steps in mitigation are-

  • Eliminating moisture from wet surfaces by controlling humidity, airflow, and temperature 
  • Removing any contaminated material

The restorers focus on speeding up the drying process rather than relying on antimicrobial agents to curb contamination.

Why do SERVPRO techs use professional products during water damage restoration of Morgan Hill establishments? 

SERVPRO restorers use professional water damage restoration products in certain situations in your water-damaged Morgan Hill commercial space. The application of such products after initial water extraction can offer several advantages, including-

  • Control the growth of microbes
  • Make the job site safe for the IICRC-certified technicians to perform their task
  • Help fight odors

The presence of dirt and other organic matter can reduce the effectiveness of the products. Hence, these are applied after the structure is thoroughly cleaned. It is also important to provide sufficient 'dwell time' for the products to perform their functions. 

SERVPRO techs never use antimicrobial agents in occupied structures and without informing the customers.  

Call SERVPRO of Morgan Hill / Gilroy at (408) 500-0657. Our technicians are available round-the-clock to answer any questions you might have.
