Chemical Runoff Needs Professional Cleanup in Morganton
Trust SERVPRO to Remedy and Remove Biohazards from Your Property
Products unapproved for use in homes today lurk in the basements, garages, and utility closets of older homes. When chemicals start leaking from containers cleanup by the homeowner can be dangerous. Your local SERVPRO has technicians trained in the proper disposal of items containing banned substances or chemicals needing protective protocols to handle.
You never thought to face biohazard cleanup in your dream home in Morganton. For more than a century previous owners of your dwelling in a historic district of the city stored old paint, varnishes, pest control solutions, fertilizers, and other chemical interventions in a closet off the cellar. The door is barred, and you rarely consider what is inside until the plumbing running down an inside wall springs a leak. Although your plumber secured the pipe the cans and bags inside are saturated, rusting or ripping open and discharging hazardous waste into your home. You need our assistance, a restoration company with biohazard certified cleanup workers and experience in clearing dangerous substances safely from residences.
The moisture-laden powders, oozing paints (which may contain lead), varnishes, and other items contain a broad range of components now know to pose health hazards if not managed appropriately. Plus the insulation disturbed during the plumbing (the fittings may contain lead) repair may contain asbestos. A SERVPRO work crew sent to abate this complex problem first assesses and plans for all contingencies.
We barricade the areas affected with plastic sheeting and add air scrubbers to improve our ability to contain the airborne particles if deemed necessary by the project manager. Appropriate protective personal equipment clothes or crew during the job. The team bags up containers of suspect substances and insulation for disposal following local regulations off site. Using special cleaning products matched to the residues SERVPRO workers remove spills, also bagged for hazardous disposition.
Our experts evaluate any structural materials soaked with the chemicals. We always stress restoration, but removal and replacement are not unusual in this situation. The crew members also choose advanced sealants to physically inhibit some compromised areas from contaminating the rest of your home after the cleanup.
Do not endanger your family and friends with the remains of hazardous chemicals once stored inside your home. Call (828) 874-0966 to engage the services of a certified biohazard team from SERVPRO of Burke County.
