Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

At SERVPRO of Hayward, we recognize that when that water rises in our area yes the visible water may be gone but now what do you do?  Who is cleaning this and most likely it will need to be cleaned even if it is natural flood water, as it can leave our homes or businesses with an unpleasant odor and signs of water lines and dirt.  We also will clean furniture and contents other than the structure, we will deodorize and always try to restore versus replace as our trained technicians will make sure to get your property to preloss condition in a timely fashion.
