Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Most flooding and water damage require professional assistance. SERVPRO Professional franchises not only attend to structural ceiling, wall, and flooring cleaning services, we also clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other restorable belongings damaged by water. Depending on the situation, disinfectant treatments are available to clean your property. Our technicians can identify and eliminate offensive odors and deodorization. This is required since wet materials have a very distinct odor. Fogging equipment goes beyond masking the odors and other shortcuts that do not work when your odor problem is serious or persistent. SERVPRO of San Jacinto/Idyllwild/Lakeview will take care of disposing of the damaged materials.
