How to Clean Up Following a Flood?

The process of cleaning up after a flood involves several key steps to ensure your property is safely restored:

Safety First: Before starting the cleanup, ensure it's safe to re-enter your property. Wear protective gear such as gloves, boots, and masks to protect against contaminants.

Documentation: Take photographs and document the damage for insurance purposes before removing water or making repairs.

Drying Out: Open windows and doors to allow air circulation and use fans and dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process. This helps prevent mould and mildew growth, which can start within 24 to 48 hours after a flood.

Cleaning and Disinfecting: Thoroughly clean all affected surfaces with disinfectants to remove bacteria and other pathogens brought in by floodwaters. Pay special attention to soft furnishings and areas where mould can proliferate.
