Food and Water Dyess Afb TX 79607 Sanitation Until your local water company, utility, or public health department declares your water source safe, purify your water, not only for drinking and cooking, but also for washing any part of the body or dishes. Water: Strain water through a clean cloth or filter; then boil water vigorously for a full minute; let cool. If boiling is not possible, use fresh unscented liquid chlorine bleach (8 drops or 1/8 tsp/gallon of Dyess Afb TX 79607 clear water; 16 drops or 1/4 tsp/gallon of cloudy water); stir; let stand 30 minutes. Iodine and purification tablets are not recommended.

Finally, re-label containers that had the labels Dyess Afb TX 79607 removed, including the expiration date, with a marker. Utensils: Discard flood-contaminated wooden cutting boards and spoons, plastic utensils, baby bottles, nipples, and pacifiers. Thoroughly wash metal and ceramic pans, utensils, and dishes with hot soapy water and sanitize by boiling them in clean water or by immersing them for 15 minutes in a solution of 1 tsp chlorine bleach/quart water. 4. Furnishings and Carpets Remove all furniture, bedding, and carpeting to outdoors Dyess Afb TX 79607 to be cleaned and dried (or discarded). Flooded carpets and rugs are best replaced since flood water may contain contaminants. Flooded carpet pads should always be discarded and replaced. Remove water-logged rugs, carpets, and pads within 48 hours after flooding subsides. If salvage is attempted, spread out rugs and carpets outdoors. Hose off. If soiled, professionally clean or work in carpet shampoo with a broom. Rinse well with a solution of 1 Dyess Afb TX 79607 gallon water and 2 tablespoons liquid household chlorine bleach to sanitize (if colorfast). If carpet is wool, do not add bleach. Dry the carpet and subfloor thoroughly as quickly as possible. If carpet is installed damp, it can mildew. Carpet might shrink, but a professional may be able to stretch it. All upholstered furniture and mattresses contaminated by flood water should be discarded. If an upholstered furniture piece is valuable, the stuffing Dyess Afb TX 79607 and upholstering will need to be replaced.  Solid wood, metal and plastic furniture may be cleaned and restored.  Hose off any mud, clean, sanitize and let dry completely out of direct sunlight. 5.

Remove the interior surface of insulated walls to a point above water height. Discard flooded drywall. Undamaged Dyess Afb TX 79607 paneling may be propped open or reinstalled after cleaning. Remove and discard all wet fibrous insulation. Clean out mud. Wall studs and plates may be sprayed with disinfectant (1 cup bleach/gallon water) to kill any existing mold and fungi. Speed dry with dehumidifiers and fans. Leave walls open until they have thoroughly dried, which may take up to a month. Select replacement materials that will withstand future floods (such as rigid foam Dyess Afb TX 79607 insulation, removable wainscoting, ceramic tile, etc.). Next Steps Long-term flooding or wetness is likely to ruin most interior finishes and contents, but the next steps may be possible when flooding is short term and cleanup begins promptly. Delay permanent repairs until the building is thoroughly dry, which may take weeks. 1. Subfloors Layers of submerged plywood or OSB subfloors will likely separate or swell. Affected sections must be replaced to keep the Dyess Afb TX 79607 new floor covering from buckling. When floor coverings are removed, allow the subflooring to dry thoroughly, which may take months without a dehumidifier. Check for warping before installing new flooring. 2. Wood Floors Carefully remove a board every few feet to reduce buckling caused by swelling. If boards are tongue-and-grooved, consult a carpenter or flooring professional. Clean and dry the floor thoroughly, which may take weeks, before replacing boards and attempting repairs. Dyess Afb TX 79607 3. Tile and Sheet Flooring If a submerged wood subfloor swells or separates, flooring will need to be removed. (Asbestos tiles should be removed only by a trained professional.) If the subflooring is concrete, removal of the floor covering will hasten drying of the slab, but it might not be necessary if it would ruin an otherwise unharmed material. If water has seeped under loose sections of sheet flooring, remove the entire Dyess Afb TX 79607 sheet. Ease of flooring removal depends on the type of material and adhesive. Contact a reputable dealer to find out what product and technique (if any) will loosen the adhesive. 4. Cleaning Wall Finishes, Woodwork, & Floors To reduce mold and damage, clean and dry as soon as flood waters recede. Do not sand or scrape lead-based paint. Get more information before disturbing old paint. If materials are already moldy before you Dyess Afb TX 79607 can begin cleanup, get more information on avoiding mold hazards and recommended removal methods from http://www.epa.gov/mold recovery publications. Use a phosphate-free, all-purpose, or disinfecting cleaner. Wash from top to bottom. Rinse with clean water. One-half cup of household chlorine bleach to a gallon of water can be used on nonmetallic, colorfast surfaces as a disinfectant (to kill surface mold and bacteria) after cleaning, but it will not prevent new mold growth on Dyess Afb TX 79607 materials that stay damp. Dry thoroughly and quickly. If the utilities are on, use the air conditioning or heater, fans, and a dehumidifier or desiccants to speed drying. 5. Appliances and Equipment 6. Furniture Take furniture outdoors to clean. Brush off mud. All parts (drawers, doors, etc.) should be removed. Remove or cut a hole in the back to push out stuck drawers and doors. Discard flooded padding. Use commercial furniture-cleaning products Dyess Afb TX 79607 designed for the type of material. Do not refinish or wax until thoroughly dry. Dry slowly out of direct sunlight because sun will warp furniture. It may take several weeks to several months to dry. 7. Preventing Mold Aggressively control mold in the weeks and months after the flood. When power is available, continuously use air conditioning (or heat in winter) plus a dehumidifier, if possible, to remove humidity. In an unair-conditioned Dyess Afb TX 79607 home, open windows and use fans to circulate air. Turn on electric lights in closets, and leave doors open to facilitate drying. Try to reduce activities that add moisture to the indoor air, and use exhaust fans when cooking and bathing. 8.

Visit http://www.epa.gov/iaq. Use Dyess Afb TX 79607 a HEPA vacuum, if available, to remove visible mold growth. Discard the vacuum bag. Otherwise, wipe with damp paper towels, discard, and seal in plastic bags. Dry items in the sun, if possible.

Wipe mildew-stained areas with a cloth dampened with diluted alcohol (1 cup rubbing or denatured Dyess Afb TX 79607 alcohol to 1 cup water). Dry thoroughly. Additional Sources:
