Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Step 5 – Cleaning and Sanitization of the Home

Water damage does not discriminate—it can damage more than just your flooring and walls in your home. Things like furniture, clothing, and other personal items could be damaged by the water as well. Not to fear, SERVPRO of West Amarillo has technicians that are trained to clean restorable items. They will also sanitize the home and items with antimicrobial treatment to prevent any future growth. Any lingering odor can either be eliminated with air scrubbers or thermal fogging equipment. For some equipment, it is best if there are no occupants present in the home, so this is something that you may have to prepare for. We at SERVPRO believe in restoring your home "Like it never even happened."
