Why does SERVPRO Use Ultrasonic Cleaning during Mold and Water Removal?
Hackensack Homeowners need Gentle and Effective Cleaning after Mold and Water Removal.
It is an unfortunate fact of life that plumbing leaks, storms, and even broken appliances can damage your Hackensack home. Water can move quickly through a property, soaking into any porous material from the carpet to your favorite armchair and even into drywall. And once water is present, it does not take long for fungal growth to begin (as little as 48 hours.)
When you need mold and water removal in your Hackensack home, you might worry about all the items that need cleaning afterward. Water quickly seeps into personal belongings, and mold can grow on many surfaces. Luckily, SERVPRO is on hand to help.
What is ultrasonic cleaning?
Ultrasonic cleaning uses bubbles to clean. The unit contains a basin filled with an ultrasonic cleaning solution. We place the items inside, and the machine creates ultrasonic frequencies to agitate the solution and make tiny bubbles. The bubbles burst against the surface of any items placed in the tank, pushing away dirt, grime, or in this case, mold.
We usually place items in the ultrasonic unit for five minutes, up to twenty, depending on how soiled they are.
Why does SERVPRO use it?
Ultrasonic cleaning has many advantages:
- Gets into hard to reach nooks and crannies
- Gentle enough to leave items undamaged
- Only requires one technician to operate the machine
- A fast and efficient cleaning process
What can we use ultrasonic cleaning on?
You would be surprised at the number of things we can clean with the ultrasonic unit:
- Window blinds – from Venetian to plastic, and including fabric blinds and drapes
- Keepsakes – many toys, stuffed toys, and knick-knacks are suitable for ultrasonic cleaning
- Dishware, cutlery, and kitchen utensils
- Rugs and scatter cushions
We have portable units that fit on the countertop, and some of our facilities include large units that are big enough for automotive parts!
We cannot use the machine on items that are susceptible to water damage, but ultrasonic cleaning is an excellent choice for most other things.
