Why You Should and Need to Clean, Sanitize, and Disinfect a Flooded Home Urgently?

When your house gets flooded, the water can wreak havoc on the structure of the house, your belongings, and the health of the inside environment of your home. Floodwaters contain many contaminants, bacteria, and lots of mud. Expensive items can get ruined all at once, even with just an inch of water. Some of which are carpeting, wallboard, electrical wires, appliances, and furniture. In severe weather, such as intense storms, heavy rains, or deep flooding, expensive systems like your HVAC, air ducts, roofing, and building foundation can incur more damages.

A flooding incident in your home or business needs immediate cleaning and drying. Proper cleaning helps eliminate the harmful effects of bacterial and viral organisms, and structural drying is also important for mold prevention.

When cleaning out your basement, home, or business after a flood, you need to follow these steps (source: Rhode Island Department of Health).
