When our plumber in London is effectuating clean up services after a water damage, simple drying methods are most of the times not enough to make the home safe again.
The walls, floor coverings and carpets are porous, which implies that a simple cleaning is not enough. In such cases, extensive water damage clean up is necessary, which implies cleaning and deodorizing in London.
What do cleaning and deodorizing services in London consist of?
Our plumbers in London mention that water damage emergencies are classified after the type of water which is producing the damage. A Category 3 “black water” damage is the most hazardous of all types.
This water damage category is unsanitary and it brings an immediate health hazard to anyone who comes in contact with it.
If the water does not impose an immediate danger to the health, enabling the water to stay in the same place for an extended period of time could lead to a Category 3 situation.
The Category 3 water damage situation could produce health hazards such as:
• The formation of bacteria, causing typhoid fever and food poisoning;
• The generation of viruses, like hepatitis, pneumonia and so on;
• The formation of protozoa, which causes gastroenteritis, dysentery and toxoplasmosis.
A crucial action required when restoring a home after a water damage by our plumber in London after a Category 3 situation is to clean and deodorize all surfaces of the London home in order to get rid of dangerous agents which might cause diseases and to prevent the mold and mildew growth.
