Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Cleaning and sanitizing water damaged areas is very important to any successful restoration project, and is key in the prevention of mold growth. After your home or business has been dried to IICRC S500 Standards SERVPRO of Bartow County technicians will start the cleaning and sanitizing step in the process. Using SERVPRO's proprietary professional cleaning and sanitizing products as well as our extensive cleaning and sanitizing training, SERVPRO of Bartow County will clean and sanitize the affected area insuring that mold can not develop down the road. Mold remediation or mold removal projects can become very costly and could prolong a simple water loss by a significant mount of time. By taking these steps to prevent mold, the home or business owner gains peace of mind and reassurance that their home will be returned to preloss condition. The affected or damaged area is now prepared for the restoration step in the process, where our construction department repairs, rebuilds, and in most cases can work with property owners to upgrade their home or business.
