Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

After water is removed and the humidity is brought to lower acceptable levels the property is in need of cleaning. As we turn away from remediation we begin looking at finishing the project. A finished project is a project that is clean and livable.

Remediation and restoration is reconstruction work. And reconstruction work is construction work with all that that entails, dust, left over material, and the need for precision cleaning. A project isn’t complete until the site is cleaned and brought back to move-in condition. Our team will clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other restorable belongings damaged by the water. Most flooding and water damage also require professional odor removal and deodorization since wet materials have a very distinct odor.
