Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Practices and Products that Restore Your Dried Danbury Home

Cleaning has always been one of the centerpieces of every restoration project that our SERVPRO team undertakes, and that is why we have invested the time and resources into the top-quality cleaning agents and products to get the job done right. In many ways, this is the most critical portion of the restoration process, as this takes the now dried Danbury residence and removes any lingering residues, soiling, or staining that might have resulted from the prolonged water exposure.

Restoration without cleaning is a prepared meal without dishes and silverware. Much like JK’s and Angelo’s Pizza are not going to prepare food and bring it out with their hands, we understand the importance of presentation for your Danbury property after a loss incident as well. Many areas demand the attention of our cleaning technicians after water emergencies, including:

• Revitalizing carpeted floors with hot water extraction
• Restoring hardwood surfaces with thyme and citrus oils
• Cleaning up before and after reconstruction
• Dry vacuuming debris and dust

Cleaning the Contents of Your Property

Your belongings need the same attention as the residence after exposure to migrating water loss effects. Those that have not gotten relocated with our pack-out process to the nearby SERVPRO facility can get cleaned and restored on-site. Between potent cleaning products and practices, as well as efficient deodorization equipment like thermal foggers and ozone machines, we make losses “Like it never even happened.”
