Clean Flood-soaked Material Quickly, Safely

flood cleanupOnce floodwaters recede, buildings and wet material need to be cleaned and dried quickly because mold can develop in one to three days. Wear protective gear if removing sewage backup because it contains biological contamination. Also avoid standing in water when using electrical equipment such as wet/dry vaccums when doing flood cleanup.
