What You Need to Know About Water Damage Restoration After Hurricane Ian

At Sadie’s Pro Cleaning, servicing Fort Myers, FL and Charlotte County, Collier County, and Sarasota County in response to Hurricane Ian and its surrounding areas, we know how common it is to have to deal with water damage cleanup, especially after experiencing such a devastating Hurricane. That’s why Sadie’s is here 24/7 to help if you ever have to deal with this in your home or business. While it can be helpful to remove as much water as possible yourself, it’s always best to look to a professional team like ours to make sure there is no remaining water or damage that could lead to further damage to the structure of your property.


When the experts from Sadie’s Pro Cleaning arrive, the first thing they will do is inspect the property. Checking your home or business thoroughly will allow them to form a water restoration plan and evaluate the space for any additional water that may need removal. While they are performing this inspection, the team will also check for safety hazards, including water exposure to electrical outlets that could cause electrocution.

Complete Water Removal

The first step when Sadie’s Pro Cleaning arrives at your location is making sure all standing water has been removed. This is important to making sure that the area can properly dry out and prevent further water exposure to structural parts of your home like the walls and flooring. If necessary, Sadie’s Pro Cleaning can also work to remove unwanted water from furniture and other personal belongings.


The cleaning process has several steps. We will want to clean and sanitize the space first, including flooring, walls, carpeting, and other affected areas like personal furniture. Depending on the water the areas were exposed to, this may require more extensive sanitization. Sadie’s Pro Cleaning has professional industrial equipment to carry out these tasks and make sure your property is safe and back to normal as soon as possible.


Once the bulk of the water has been removed and the area has been sanitized, it is time for Sadie’s Pro Cleaning to make sure the whole affected area is dried out as completely as possible. Many believe you can just open a window and let the room air out, but this is not an effective way to dry out parts of your property that have incurred water damage. Sadie’s Pro Cleaning’s experts will use professional equipment, like industrial fans and dehumidifiers, to minimize the lingering moisture in your property that can seep into the structure of the property including the flooring, drywall, ceiling, and more.

Final Steps

Once your property has recovered from the water damage, we can begin to take further steps to replace portions of the home or business that have been damaged beyond economical repair. Sadie’s Pro Cleaning has professionals that can walk you through this process, so you don’t have to go through it alone.
