What are flood cleaning requirements?
A storm caused severe water damage to this kitchen.
After a storm that causes flood damage in your home, there are some cleaning requirements to ensure you protect your family from dangerous mold, bacteria or structural damage. Your insurance company will need to come out first to assess the destruction. Once that is complete, it's time to shovel out any mud that accumulated. After the dirt is clear, it's time to disinfect every surface with bleach or another strong cleaner. Fans should be placed in each room and all fabric items contaminated by the flood water will need to be discarded. Every surface in the house needs to be inspected for mold and damage.
