St. Petersburg Residents Should Call SERVPRO to Disinfect Their Homes After a Tropical Storm

We don't need to experience a hurricane to understand the impact a tropical storm can have on our homes. Even though we build our buildings and homes in South Florida to sustain torrential downpours, heavy winds could knock a tree onto your roof and open a leak into your home. They could also raise water levels for floodwater to enter through your door. Regardless of the incident, disinfecting and repairing your home is extremely important.

Why Should I Call a Professional Crew to Disinfect My Home?

Average household cleaners are sufficient for our everyday needs. They are easily accessible at the grocery store, and you can apply them quickly. However, when water comes into your home from outside sources, it carries bacteria and debris. Rather than allowing these microorganisms to multiply in your home, you should call our SERVPRO technicians so we can apply cleaners and disinfectants to your storm damaged St. Petersburg home. The solutions we use are industry-grade and compliant with EPA regulations.

Similarly, the equipment we use can reach all corners of your storm damaged home. Some best practices to help us enhance our reach within your house include the following:

  • Utilizing EPA approved solutions appropriate for each surface. For example, porous surfaces need different treatment than non-porous surfaces.
  • Allow enough time for the solution to sink in. Our crew knows and understands the recommended times for each agent to react.
  • Know where an application is essential. For example, solutions should not be sprayed into HVAC systems but should permeate subfloors and carpeting.

When your home is at stake, you can rely on SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg. Call us at (727) 522-0000 any time, day or night, and let us into your home. We aim to leave your home "Like it never even happened."
