Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Now that the water has been drained and we have thoroughly inspected your home or business we can begin to determine exactly which of your property's walls, flooring, and ceilings will most likely require professional cleaning services. In addition to having SERVPRO of Hanover Township / Bear Creek clean your property’s structure, we will also clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing, and any other restorable belongings that may have been damaged by the water. Furthermore, It is likely that your home or business will also require professional odor removal and deodorization because after most flood or water damage the materials used to build the structure leave behind a very distinct odor due to being wet.
