Bacteria is everywhere, and although a vast majority of bacteria are not harmful to humans, certain kinds of bacteria can make you extremely sick. The most dangerous type of bacterial presence in most households is typically those bacteria that are found in sewage water. That’s why it’s important to schedule bacteria testing and remediation following a toilet backup or burst sewage pipe in your home. In San Francisco, Safe Air Fast provides bacteria testing in accordance with standards established by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC).
First, we will take air and surface samples to identify the presence and determine the concentration of harmful bacteria in your home. After you hire a remediation company to remove the bacteria from your home, we will perform a post-bacteria remediation clearance assessment to determine if the cleaning efforts were successful. If we confirm the presence of harmful bacteria after remediation, you will need to consult with the remediator to perform additional cleaning. We will provide you with a copy of our test samples to assist you when dealing with an unsuccessful remediator.
