Most Popular GH Lab tip: If All American Water Restoration: Water Damage Orlando FL Peoria AZ 85345 the power is still out, use a flashlight, not a candle, to see things as open flames can burn items or cause gases to ignite. 3. Start clean-up quickly. To keep mold at bay, it’s important to dry water-logged items (everything from furniture to small knick-knacks) within 48 hours. The longer they remain wet, the more likely mildew stains will appear. Begin by opening windows and using fans and dehumidifiers Peoria AZ 85345 to keep air circulating. 4. Salvage and clean carpeting. It’s best to send removable carpets and area rugs out for professional cleaning. Unfortunately, installed carpeting (and the padding underneath) that’s been immersed in water can’t be adequately cleaned and should be thrown away. If only part of your carpeting got wet, use a wet-dry vacuum to remove as much water as possible. Then, call in professional cleaners, or clean and Peoria AZ 85345 rinse the carpet with an extraction cleaner (also known as a steam cleaner, like one of these machines we tested in the Good Housekeeping Institute).

Take solid wood furniture outdoors, and remove drawers and doors to clean it (swollen parts may need to dry first, if they can’t easily be removed). Thoroughly brush or wash dirty furniture with a well-wrung cloth dipped in a mild soap and water solution. Use a cloth wrung in clear water to rinse. Allow the pieces to dry out of direct sunlight. Peoria AZ 85345 Badly damaged furniture may need professional refinishing, but others might just need a new coat of polish. Upholstered furniture should be professionally cleaned, and flood-damaged mattresses should be discarded. 6. Inspect appliances. For things like coffee makers and toasters, look at cords for fraying or exposed wires. For fridges, ranges and washers, call a service company to check the safety of connections and components. Replace anything that appears to be Peoria AZ 85345 severely damaged. 7. Open up the fridge. If you’re away from home for more than four hours, toss perishables like meat, dairy and leftovers. It’s OK to save condiments. Freezer contents are safe for about 48 hours, if the freezer is full. If only half-full, you’ve got 24 hours. GH Lab tip: As soon as you hear a storm is coming, be proactive and freeze milk, meat and poultry. 8. Peoria AZ 85345 Clean clothing �” twice. For washable fabrics, treat any stains with a prewash spray (we like Shout Advanced Gel) and wash in cool water with a powdered laundry detergent. Powdered detergents work well at removing clay and dirt that floodwater may contain, and cool water keeps stains from setting. After this initial wash, re-launder everything, this time in the hottest water that’s safe for the fabrics with powdered detergent and Peoria AZ 85345 either chlorine or all-fabric bleach. Air dry all garments until you are certain any stains are removed. Take non-washable garments to the dry cleaner. 9. Beware of carbon monoxide poisoning. If you’re relying on a charcoal grill or camp stove for cooking, don’t even think about firing it up indoors. When used in enclosed spaces these types of grills can produce lethal levels of the gas, which is colorless and Peoria AZ 85345 odorless �” but still deadly. Same goes for portable generators. 10. Document the damage. It may be hard emotionally, but if you want to file an insurance claim, make sure you record all the damage with clear pictures and thorough notes. Related Stories
