Recent flooding presented a challenge for crews cleaning up Qualcomm Stadium before the Chargers continued play, but the use of technology allowed the cleanup to proceed as planned and got fans into the stadium in time to see their favorite team in their home venue.
J&M Keystone, a San Diego flood remediation company, offers cleanup not only for residential locations but also for commercial and public venues such as shopping malls, hospitals, schools and sports stadiums.
CLEANING UP A LARGE STADIUM IS CHALLENGING
Like any large cleanup after a flood, a stadium presents unique challenges to cleanup crews. Stormwater runoff had flooded sections of the parking lot at Qualcomm Stadium due to the overflow of Murphy Creek Canyon Channel. The channel runs west of Interstate 15 and touches the east side of Qualcomm Stadium’s parking area.
Cleanup crews from the city of San Diego’s Transportation and Stormwater Department sent in street sweepers to clear mud and debris from the parking lot.
One problem with cleaning a large outdoor venue is the deposits of mud and dirt that often accompany flood waters. These deposits are relatively heavy and tend to stay in place even after flood waters have receded. Because mud, dirt and other debris is deposited by water, these contaminants can reach great heights, requiring special cleaning techniques to remove them.
The most dangerous issues surrounding floods, however, are generally bacteria and mold. Because flood water travels into so many hidden spots, it can deposit bacteria in invisible places and can create the right conditions for the growth of mold. Some types of mold can cause serious allergic reactions in visitors to the location months after the flood waters have receded and cleanup has taken place.
BEATING MOLD AND BACTERIA
Cleaning up mold and bacteria after a flood is extremely important for the health and safety of anyone who may be in the building now and in the future. However, it is not easy to clean up safely so that bacteria and mold spores do not spread. It is usually best to let experts handle this type of cleanup.
