Step 5: Cleaning

You will likely need a professional cleaning service in the aftermath of a water damage emergency.  SERVPRO technicians will clean your property’s structure, furniture, clothing, upholstery and restorable belongings affected by water damage.  Also, because wet materials are known to have a very distinct odor, most instances of water damage require professional odor removal and deodorization.

Note: SERVPRO technicians, through technical expertise and top-grade equipment, eliminate offensive or persistent odors, rather than simply masking them.
