Cement Blocks are Good for More than Just Retaining Walls
This commercial building had an unfortunate sewer backup in the basement. During the cleanup process, our team moved the filing cabinets you see in the photo to be disinfected. Once the filing cabinets were moved we could start cleaning the basement. We removed the contaminated carpet and did a hard surface cleaning of the concrete floor.
By request of the owner, when placing the filing cabinets back, we put them on cement blocks in preparation for future losses because accidents happen all the time. We thought it was a great idea because it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
What is not pictured is the 2 air scrubbers we brought in to clean the air. An air scrubber is a portable filtration system that removes particles, gasses, and/or chemicals from the air within a given area. These machines draw air in from the surrounding environment and pass it through a series of filters to remove contaminants.
