SERVPRO of Hackensack/Little Ferry has been the cleanup and restoration leader in New Jersey for over a decade. We’ve helped many business owners deal with the aftermath of a water or fire disaster and make sure they are up and running for business again as soon as possible. We know how important it is to be prepared so you can deal with the cleanup process ASAP and get back to serving your customers.

To help you understand what to expect from the cleanup process, here’s a step-by-step guide:

Create a Safety Zone

During any restoration process, it may be necessary to establish a safety perimeter, especially around standing equipment and removed building materials.

Remove Any Non-Salvageable Items

Our SERVPRO team of restoration professionals is committed to salvaging and repairing as much as possible. 

In particular, items like carpeting or wooden furniture that can become saturated with contaminated water may not be safe to try to repair.  When this happens, these non-salvageable items will be properly bagged and removed from the area for safe disposal.


Once the affected area has been cleared out, next it is time to clean and disinfect.

The specific cleanup process will vary depending on the nature of the accident, but in all circumstances, a commercial-grade disinfectant will be used to thoroughly sanitize the area and prevent any further issues. 


Depending on the circumstances, it may be necessary to seal-up certain surfaces in order to remedy odors and stains.

It is common for drywall to need to be repaired.  Other surfaces that may need sealing might include plaster, concrete, or certain wooden surfaces.


Once your damaged property has been thoroughly cleaned and sealed up, it will be time to start the restoration and reconstruction process.

Maybe it’s just your floor that needs to be restored, or maybe there’s a whole section of a building that needs to be reconstructed.  Whatever the size of the problem, you can rest assured that our professionals of SERVPRO will be able to handle it.
