Flash flooding in Amherst and other storm problems can put homes at risk. One of the significant concerns with storm flooding is “black water.” This type of water is contaminated and needs special handling.

Why is Black Water Hazardous?

Flood damage in Amherst greatly impacts homes where the floodwaters go raging through. Flooding carries dirt, debris, pesticides, chemicals, and microbes with them. When the flooding has stopped, the standing water becomes a breeding ground for all kinds of unsanitary things.

How is Flood Restoration Handled?

Our IICRC certified technicians understand biohazardous situations. They are also OSHA and ABRA-certified. They have the proper PPE to use when cleaning and provide the disinfection and sanitization needed. SERVPROXIDE is one of the agents we use, and it:

  • Is a proprietary hospital grade disinfectant
  • Is registered with the EPA
  • Is a stabilized chlorine dioxide-based antimicrobial
