Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

After your home or business suffers from water damage, your property will most likely require professional cleaning services. SERVPRO of Lexington-Bedford can offer these services to you. After cleaning your property's structure, we will clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other belongings that can be restored that have suffered from water damage. When materials become wet, they have a very distinct odor.  Most water damages also require professional odor removal and deodorization. Having our team perform odor removal and deodorization will prevent these odors from spreading throughout your home or business. It is very important to also have these services done so your property can be efficiently cleaned after suffering a water damage.
