Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

In most cases, flooding and severe water damage can cause foul odors to seep into walls, floors, carpet, and furniture, that can be difficult to eliminate. For this reason, many cases of water damage cleanup in Atlanta will also require professional odor removal and deodorization, because wet materials have a very distinct and pungent odor.
