Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

The cleaning and sanitizing step is an important part of the water restoration process. During this step our technicians utilize professional antimicrobial cleaning products to restore and sanitize your home or business. Even after a structure has been dried to IICRC standards, the potential for microbial growth is still pretty high. By utilizing our proprietary cleaning and sanitizing procedures SERVPRO of East Cobb can ensure you will not encounter mold issues stemming from your water loss in the future. SERVPRO even offers warranties on our work, so that you can sleep easy knowing SERVPRO of East Cobb has your back and is on your side.
