Flooded houses are a familiar problem for some people, especially in the rainy season. Unfortunately, the problem does not stop even though the flood has passed where the condition of the house is dirty and messy. Not only the remaining mud deposits but also bacteria and germs left on the floor and walls because of the dirty water that mixed with sewer water. This is when you need to clean the house quickly before the dirt becomes dry and harder to remove. Cleaning up the house after the flood needs a smart ploy to get your time efficiently and home clean as quickly as possible. Action 1 Restoration service is here to facilitate you in overcoming problems and damage caused by rain and also water.
Here are some ways to clean the house after the flood:
– Get ready after low tide
Getting ready when the flood in the house has subsided to about 5cm tall. At this point, you should start removing the sludge of the flood water because the mud will be harder to get rid of without water, do not wait until the flood is completely drained. Clean the dirt and mud deposits outdoors using a palm broom or rubber shovel. Also, reach under furniture.
– Rinse immediately with clean water
That way, you will only need clean water to rinse. As soon as the flood subsides but while the floor is still wet, rinse the floor with clean water. Use pressurized water hose high enough to reach every corner of the house and shed the remnants of dirt in the flooded furniture. Remove the water using a palm broom or a rubber shovel and make sure no puddles are left in the house.
– Wash stuff with cloth material
Wash mats, curtains, tablecloths, towels, and all items made of cloth that is submerged in flood. If each treatment label permits, use a hot water wash cycle and a potent detergent that kills germs and bacteria. Adjust the length of the wash cycle with how severe the stains of the flood. While waiting for the laundry, you can take the next step. Laundry services can be an alternative if the flow of electricity in your home was cut off by flooding.
