Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

After all of the water has been removed and the materials have been dried out, it’s time to clean and sanitize. SERVPRO of Southern Monroe County can clean your entire structure from top to bottom, including ceiling, walls, floors, etc. In addition to your structure, SERVPRO Professionals can also clean any affected contents. This can include furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other restorable belongings damaged by the water. While cleaning and sanitizing are very important after experiencing water damage, deodorization is equally as important. SERVPRO goes to exceptional lengths to ensure your home or business is left smelling clean and fresh.
