The type of flooding that occured in our area was unexpected and has left many homeowners unsure of how to proceed. Follow these simple tips to help prevent mold from growing in your flood damaged home:
- Discard Porous Materials – Wood and upholstered furniture can trap mold and should be discarded immediately.
- Remove Water Damaged Flooring – Water can get trapped underneath flooring and even after it’s dried may not remove mold spores. Also, water damaged carpet can mold and mildew and should be discarded.
- Increase Ventilation in Your Home – Help ventilate your home by opening windows and make sure to wear protective gloves and possibly a mask when doing a tear down. Dehumidifiers and fans can help speed up the drying process, which can take several days.
- Get Rid of Anything That Can’t Be Cleaned – Anything porous that cannot be cleaned, including wallboard, fiberglass, etc should be discarded. Once the damaged walls have been removed, allow them to dry.
