Flood Damage Syosset – Managing Infectious Waste

Many consumers assume that cleaning up after a small flood is entirely safe and can be completed by family and friends who volunteer to help out. Unfortunately, floodwaters in Syosset can absorb many different infectious waste materials dangerous to their health, including but not limited to cholera, tetanus, typhoid, polio, and hepatitis. These diseases are possible anytime floodwaters pass over open ground or mix with sewer backups.

SERVPRO has the experience and equipment to deal with flood damage situations in Syosset and surrounding areas. We adhere to industry guidelines when dealing with potentially infectious diseases and biohazard situations. Our technicians are equipped with personal protective equipment PPE to protect themselves from potential danger.

Protect Your Family and Employees

Floodwaters can be contaminated. Avoid exposing your family members, friends, or employees to these potentially dangerous hazards. Also, silt and debris deposited inside the building present potential slip and fall conditions along with degrading structure and content materials.

Anyone entering the area with exposed skin, especially those with existing open cuts or abrasions carry a higher risk of infection. Also, a slip or fall can cause cuts or abrasions on the skin, exposing the individual to infection.

Containment Procedures

Hazardous material can be spread if procedures are not followed to manage moving equipment, materials, and waste in and out of the building. We remove contaminated water and trash bags containing waste following city and industry guidelines from the EPA and OSHA.

These guidelines are part of the standard process SERVPRO technicians follow to protect the occupants and themselves when dealing with potential bio-hazard conditions. Containment areas may be required to prevent spreading contaminants to other areas of the building. SERVPRO removes all contaminated materials and disinfects the premises.

Avoid placing your family, friends, or employees at risk. SERVPRO can clean up flood damage safely and securely, meeting all local and industry guidelines associated with biohazard cleanup.
