Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Once the drying process is complete, your walls, flooring, and ceiling will most likely require professional cleaning services. In addition to cleaning your property’s structure, we will clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other restorable belongings damaged by the water. Most flooding and water damage also requires professional odor removal and deodorization, since wet materials have a very distinct odor.

We start by cleaning the walls and floors. This requires unplugging all electronics and appliances from the walls to prevent electric shock, the risk of which is highly exacerbated by the presence of water. We then move on to furniture and upholstery, making sure to restore rather than replace your expensive furnishings whenever possible.

After that, we begin the odor removal and deodorization process. Our water restoration service technicians are specially trained on which odors to look for and eliminate. We don't cut corners; our professional-grade deodorizing equipment is top-of-the-line and guaranteed to eliminate, not hide, even the most persistent odors that result from water damage.

Once deodorization is complete, we move on to sanitizing treatments. Bacteria can linger even after your home or commercial building has been thoroughly cleaned and deodorized. We utilize powerful yet safe industrial-strength disinfectants to ensure a deep clean--you may even find your home is cleaner than it was before the water damage occurred! Once sanitation is complete, we remove and discard any damaged materials.
