SERVPRO Helps Remove Visible Soiling, Contamination, and Odors during Water Clean Up

When a property is damaged by clean water, it might be difficult to figure out what cleaning action is necessary for its restoration. Unlike grey or black water, which leaves visible soiling, clean water mostly leaves wet contents or structural materials all over the affected Olathe property. 

It is essential to do a thorough water cleanup in your Olathe home even after a clean water intrusion since various problems can arise if you only dry the wet materials. Our SERVPRO technicians consider the source point of the intruding water when deciding the cleaning processes necessary to resolve issues at your property.

Water intrusions can occur from:

  • Burst pipes
  • Ceiling leaks
  • Leaking roof from storms

Elevated entry points such as roof or ceiling leaks mean that the water passes through voids such as attics or ceilings before trickling on contents within the rooms. Such water collects dust and other debris, which it readily deposits on furniture and other items in the rooms below, soiling them. Cleaning is necessary before drying the items to prevent stains, patches, or streaks.

In case of pipe leaks, the intruding water may remain hidden for some time. The delay creates room for mold and odor development. Cleanup helps ensure the house is habitable after drying off the wet areas. 

SERVPRO IICRC-certified professionals help perform various actions to facilitate cleaning, including:

  • Cleaning surfaces with chemical agents
  • Applying deodorizers to control smells
  • Agitating surfaces to remove unwanted materials

SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa and SERVPRO of Blue Valley handle water cleanup exercises regularly. Call us at (913) 782-4693 for assistance. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
