Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Depending on the source of the water damage to your home or business, there may be the need to clean and sanitize both the structure and the contents that were affected by the water. This is especially true in flooding situations and sewer back ups.  The water from these sources is highly contaminated and can pose health risks if not properly sanitized.

The professionals at SERVPRO of Coon Rapids/Central Anoka regularly conduct these types of cleanings at the end of our restoration process to ensure that the property is a safe and clean environment for its residents.

If your contents have been affected as well, we can either clean everything on site, or pack out the contents and clean them at our state of the art 19,000 square foot facility.
