Keep Flood Damage from Ruining Your Practice

To help patients relax, many doctors in Waterbury have chosen to include an aquarium in their waiting rooms. The therapeutic and calming effects of fish and other aquatic animals can last a while, making examinations less nerve-racking for patients. However, aquariums require substantial care, or circumstances similar to flood damage can result.

Fortunately, SERVPRO’s B2B services in Waterbury include flood damage cleanup, restoration, and mitigation. We know disasters happen in all sizes and in some of the most unexpected ways. A little fishy water can turn your neat and clean waiting area into a messy disaster everyone wants to avoid.

It might look like a simple, straightforward job to clean up such a mess, but there are different components of this type of flood damage that you should consider. It would help if you looked at 

  • The organic compounds involved in an aquarium,
  • Any chemicals used in the aquarium, and 
  • Various pieces of debris.

Organic compounds include fish that have died and settled to the bottom, unfiltered waste, and any uneaten food. Chemicals include water treatments, medications (bacterial and fungal), salts, antiparasitics, and many other chemicals dissolved in the water.

When SERVPRO encounters a situation like this, we remove the largest things and work down to the smallest. We quickly remove any solids and begin working on removing the water. Our teams address every aspect of this situation, down to the odor-producing particles now saturating your carpeting.

Organic sources quickly produce odors that can become offensive to most individuals, so our odor control IICRC-certified technician can take care of this for you. Sometimes, it takes two or three treatments to control odor fully. Doing this is much more healthy and more cost-effective than using air fresheners and sprays that are supposed to mask foul odors.

Let us help you keep your patients happy. Call SERVPRO of Waterbury at (203) 757-5050 for this or any other disaster, 24/7, year-round.
