Tips to help you detox your Edwardsville, IL area home after a flood
After your home suffers water damage from a flood, it’s important to make sure you detox everything so mold and other organisms that can cause illnesses don’t grow freely. The problem is, properly detoxing your home can be difficult. Here are some tips for making sure your home is clean after a flood causes water damage.
Time Is Everything
When it actually comes time to clean and dry everything in your home after a flood, it’s important to make sure you take care of everything on the list. You need to make sure you dispose of or clean your carpeting, furniture and appliances—especially your fridge since losing power can cause anything in it to perish.
You’ll also want to make sure you clean all of your clothing thoroughly so your clothes are clean of any dirt or debris that the floodwater may have brought in. This will also help prevent mold growth which is harmful to breathe.
