Cleaning Up After a Flood

Posted on May 13th, 2011 No Comments

A spring thaw can cause flooding and damage to many homes, which is why many people are preparing their homes for water damage restoration.

In most cases, the biggest problem after a flood, in terms of property damage, will be mold. It is important to thoroughly inspect your home for mold after a flood. Leslie Henderson, president and CEO of the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, said a complete disinfecting is standard after a flood.

“You have to wipe down every surface,” Henderson said. “Some prefer not to use bleach, but bleach is kind of the standard.”

The Federal Emergency Management Agency suggests disinfecting with a  10 percent bleach solution – about two cups of bleach for every gallon of water. It is important to wear gloves and goggles while disinfecting. It is also advisable to purchase a respirator to protect your lungs from airborne contaminants.

If your home has been damaged by the recent flooding, please contact the Austin Water Damage experts of WOW Total Cleaning at 512-291-0048.

"Wow Total Cleaning is great!"

Rating: 5

Wow Total Cleaning is great! My carpets look brand new again - and they were looking pretty bad! I was shocked when I came home to pristine white carpets. And they still look good. Their prices are great. They were in and out in 30 minutes. My neighbors who have alot of dogs always use them to clean their carpet. I also just realized they have a maids service and intend to give that a try too. They don't call it Wow for nothing, you too could enter your home saying WOW!
