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 Sacaton AZ 85247 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.

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).

Upholstered furniture should be professionally cleaned, and flood-damaged mattresses should be discarded. 6. Inspect appliances.

Replace anything that appears to be Sacaton AZ 85247 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.

After this initial wash, re-launder everything, this time in the hottest water that’s safe for the fabrics with powdered detergent and Sacaton AZ 85247 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.
