Restoration Experts Can Salvage Many Water-Damaged Items in Your Home

Team meets to train on contents cleaning SERVPRO team meeting begin held to train staff on contents cleaning after water damage is endured.

There are several reasons that the need for floodwater removal can arise in local Bloomingdale homes. One of the most common is storm damage that allows rainwater to enter via the roof or through a broken window. Other entrances into the home include around doors and windows due to flash flooding. 

When flood damage happens in a Bloomingdale property, the cleanup needs to begin as quickly as possible. The reason for this is that water degrades quickly, and after 48 hours, it can get classified as a category three biohazard, otherwise known as blackwater. While walls, ceilings, and furnishings may not recover after exposure to floodwater, in some cases, washable items can get sanitized for reuse. This application during water damage restoration can create significant savings for homeowners since they do not need to replace articles of clothing or other fabric items.

SERVPRO relies on the Esporta Washing System (EWS) to clean washable items in the home. It can return 90% of the soft contents in a home to a food-grade clean. This piece of equipment can handle washable items that have been exposed to contaminated water, including sewage. After a fire in a home, this same system can remove heavy smoke and soot. Mold spores infiltrating clothing used to be automatic disposal; however, a single cycle can remove mold and even bio-waste on launderable items. Other articles that can benefit are:

  • Leather goods such as shoes and purses
  • Sleeping bags
  • Pillows
  • Bedding
