Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

After the drying process has been completed, your home or business will most likely need to be cleaned. Depending on the type of water that affected your home will determine the amount of time needed to fully decontaminate the affect area. We offer more than just general cleaning which includes walls, floors, and ceilings, and other basic items. Even after the affected area is dried it can leave behind a distinct odor, which will need professional help to remove. This is no problem here at SERVPRO for our highly trained technicians, we come prepared with the appropriate equipment and chemicals.
