Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi arrived in Mosul on Sunday to declare the city liberated.
The destruction of western Mosul is 30-times the scale of the eastern side, according to its governor.
The Iraqi forces including the air wing backed by the US-led international coalition have battled ISIS militants since October 17 of last year.
Even before Moslawis can return, homes and buildings will need to be cleared of unexploded ordinance and booby traps.
