Sanitisation Restoration Service
Disaster Recovery Qld: Sanitising and disinfecting are crucial final steps in the restoration process after water, fire, hazards, sewage, or mould damage. Using the wrong chemicals or improper techniques can further damage structures and contents. As IICRC-certified restoration specialists, we properly sanitise affected areas while safeguarding health through strict protocols. Our sanitisation services are tailored for residential and commercial clients including homeowners, property managers, contractors and insurance agents.
The Sanitisation Process
Effective sanitisation requires a multi-step process:
- Initial inspection assesses the extent of contamination from pollutants like mould, bacteria and residue from fire/flood waters. This determines the appropriate sanitising agents and techniques required.
- Surfaces are thoroughly cleaned to remove dirt, debris and grime before sanitising. Cleaning enhances sanitiser contact and effectiveness.
- TGA-registered disinfectants specifically designed for restoration are applied according to label instructions. Proper dwell times allow sanitisers to fully treat affected materials.
- Technicians use advanced methods like electrostatic spraying to evenly coat all surfaces including hard-to-reach areas. Complete coverage is ensured.
- Final inspection verifies the sanitisation process is complete and the area is free of harmful mould, bacteria and other contaminants. Additional applications are done if needed.
Proper Use of Sanitising Chemicals
We follow meticulous protocols for safe, effective chemical use:
- Only TGA-registered products from reputable brands specifically made for professional restoration are used. General cleaners are not appropriate disinfectants.
- Before use, all technicians are trained on proper handling, mixing and application. Safety Data Sheets are reviewed to prevent mishaps.
- Chemicals are mixed precisely to label specifications. Improper solutions are ineffective and potentially hazardous.
- Dwell times are strictly followed so sanitisers work fully before removal. Pre-rinsing or over-dilution reduces sanitiser efficacy.
- Proper PPE like gloves, eye protection and masks are mandatory. Work areas are fully ventilated. This prevents chemical overexposure.
Qualifications and Training
We invest heavily in in-depth sanitisation training:
- Technicians are certified by the IICRC in sanitisation procedures, chemical use and safety protocols.
- Comprehensive education on TGA regulations for registered disinfectants keeps us fully compliant.
- Hands-on instruction covers identification of infectious agents, site containment, application methods and verifying sanitisation.
- Ongoing training includes latest research on containment, emerging disinfectants, safer application techniques and more.
Hazards of Unsafe Sanitisation
Improper sanitisation carries significant health and property hazards:
- Using the wrong chemicals or at the wrong dilution can damage many structural materials and finishes.
- Over-application saturates porous materials like plasterboard and wood, preventing proper drying and promoting mould growth.
- Harsh or corrosive chemicals can irritate eyes, skin and respiratory systems. Long term exposure causes chronic illness.
- Incomplete sanitisation leaves traces of mould, bacteria and other bio-contaminants that multiply quickly if structural drying is inadequate.
