Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Your walls, flooring and ceiling will most likely require professional cleaning services. In addition to cleaning your property’s structure our teams at SERVPRO® of Cheatham, Robertson and Dickson Counties can clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing and other restorable belongings that were damaged by the water. Most flooding and water damage also require professional odor removal and deodorization since wet materials carry a very distinct odor. Deodorization is one of the last services that our teams would perform. Once the materials are dried that need deodorizing our trained teams would make the determination as to which method and equipment would work best for deodorization and complete it at that time.
