Six Useful Chemical Agents For Water Damage In Your Anoka Commercial Property
Commercial Water Damage Workers In Anoka Point Out Six Useful Chemical Agents
If a toilet or sink ever breaks inside your Anoka convenience store, the results can be quite devastating. If the problem takes place while your store is closed at night, the commercial water damage you find when you come to open the store in the morning could be quite catastrophic. A broken clean water pipe can dispense hundreds of gallons into your store in hours, whereas broken toilets and sinks can threaten your health.
If drain water ever leaks out from your convenience store's restroom, there is always a possibility that harmful bacteria and parasites can be present. When mitigating commercial water damage in Anoka, our SERVPRO technicians base what restoration strategies they utilize on where the moisture originally came from. Clean water problems are easier to deal with than grey or black water issues because there is no chance that the water is harmful and contaminated. If one of your kitchen or bathroom sinks leaks, the water could contain contaminants and is classified as a category two situation. Sewage water leaking or toilets backing up can make matters worse because this black or category three problem means that the moisture has probably contaminated items in your store.
When battling the presence of harmful bacterias, our SERVPRO team uses several chemical agents. The following six chemicals get used often in the industry to help us combat harmful substances of all kinds.
Antimicrobial agents are used in limiting or stopping the growth of harmful microorganisms such as mold.
Germicides and disinfectants are antimicrobials that destroy about 99% of organisms they contact on surfaces.
A product listed as a sanitizer decreases microbes to levels considered by public health authorities to be safe.
These are disinfectants that are effective in controlling bacterial or fungal spores when used according to label directions.
Phenolics are aromatic alcohol-based agents usually diluted with water and used as disinfectants, antiseptics, biocides, and antimicrobials.
6. Quaternary Compounds
Quats destroy microorganisms by rupturing their cell walls. They are used primarily to disinfect or sanitize.
