Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Damages that pose risks to your health are better left to the professionals at SERVPRO® of Hurst-Euless-Bedford. Cleaning and sanitation after a water loss can be both unique and challenging. Our technicians are trained and certified to clean your home and restorable contents to its preloss condition. Sanitizing of your home and contents depends on the case and type of damage in which antibacterial and antimicrobial agents are used when the cleaning process is complete. We use all SERVPRO cleaning agents which are designed and tested by our chemists at the SERVPRO Headquarters.

Fire Damage

Fires leave a penetrating odor. Wiping the surface alone will not fix the problem or remove the smell without proper process. After a fire, salvageable clothing, linens, and upholstered furniture should be appropriately cleaned to expel the scent reminiscent of smoke. Soot and ash left behind after a fire must be removed from the property. Soot will settle into the carpet, air ducts of the central air system and cause the odor to remain, that is why it is important to have our team of certified technicians to remediate your fire damage. 

Water Damage

Water can cause microbial growth and the cleanest water is not excluded. The cleanest water can leave a sour odor on clothing, linens and even furniture. SERVPRO® of Hurst-Euless-Bedford has a variety of cleaning and sanitizing products to help disperse any odor in your home and antimicrobial solutions can help prevent further mold growth.
