In this context we’ll look at how valuable it is to have an experienced firm by your side when it comes to the selection and use of the right disinfectants during the water damage mitigation process.

Water Damage Repair and the Use of Disinfectants

Our water damage repair technicians utilize their experience to select the right procedure for applying disinfectants, such as quats (quaternary ammonium compounds) and phenols. Let’s look at a few examples that illustrate this fact:

  • Prevent Contamination: Water damage restoration professionals fully understand that soaps, as well as other surfactants that are like soaps, tend to contaminate and inactivate quats. As such, experts keep note of this fact to ensure contamination does not take place
  • Stop Quats from Getting Inactivated: Quats also become inactive when used with hard water. If hard water is found in a home, the water damage cleanup technicians mix quats and a water conditioning agent to get the desired results
  • Avoid Over Dilution: Another important factor experts keep note of is proper dilution, as quats tend to be effective only when properly diluted. Having the necessary technical knowledge allows technicians to dilute quats to the required level to achieve maximum effectiveness. Experts also understand that over-diluting can be counter-productive as it can facilitate the growth of germs
  • Prevent Inactivation of Phenols: Similar to quats, water damage restoration professionals utilize proper procedures to achieve the desired results from the use of phenols. For instance, experts know that certain detergents can make phenols inactive. They’re also aware that specific pH levels can result in the inactivation of phenols. As such they ensure they’re fully aware of the pH levels and which detergents should be avoided when phenols are being used for disinfecting the restoration site
