At SERVPRO of Midtown Manhattan we want to protect our customers from fire and flood damage as soon as possible. Did you know that we also do bioremediation and commercial cleanings? We protect our customers and clients by using natural and safe chemicals. We want to make your home, office, or place of business safe for all those who enter. If your technician decides to introduce chemicals, you will be informed on the effects and contents of the product.

We’ve compiled some of our most used terms and chemicals to help you ensure the safety of your clients, tenants, and employees.

Antimicrobial Agents: 

Are any chemicals that prevent the spread of microorganisms through water or on damp surfaces and materials. If we believe that black or gray water has contaminated the space, we will use antimicrobial agents to clear out any toxic matter.


We use a hospital-grade disinfectant that is healthy and safe. The disinfectant will kill 99% of all encountered organisms. This will leave your surfaces almost completely sterile. Chemicals such as alcohol, chlorine, or formaldehyde may be used to ensure all surfaces are clear of bacteria.


When using a sanitizer our aim is to lower the amount of microbes to a level that is safe for ‘public use.’ Sanitizers are usually not used alone because they are not strong enough to eradicate all of the bacteria. We don’t want to risk the chance of bacteria returning, so we may combine sanitizers with other cleaning agents.


Sterilants eradicate fungi spores and are a very effective chemical. Sterilants prevent the spread of mold in water damaged areas. This chemical cannot be applied to every surface, so we are careful with what we use them on.

Collaboration and Cooperation Will Keep You Safe 

We promise to explain the restoration process to you to ensure your safety and peace of mind. We are experts in our field and need your cooperation to do what we do best. We are here to serve you 24/7 365 days a year.
