Here's post 4/4 from our 'Hurricane and heavy rain' series.
The following tips give you an overview of what to do in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
Take photos. Document damage with a camera for insurance or federal assistance claims.
Use tools correctly. Learn how to use power tools properly and what precautions to take before you start.
Have an idea of which recovery supplies you may want to have on hand.
Take precaution when cleaning up spills. Your skin and clothing could come in contact with flammable or hazardous materials. Or, you could be exposed to dangerous fumes.
What to throw away. Food that’s come in contact with floodwater can be contaminated. Wet carpeting, upholstery or other soaked materials can develop mold within 48 hours.
Prevent mold growth on belongings. If an item has been wet for less than 48 hours, you can try cleaning it and disinfecting it.
Clean with a non-ammonia detergent, soap, or commercial cleaner. Disinfect with bleach. (1-1/2 cups in a gallon of water). Spread the items out to dry and check them for several days. If odor or mold develops, throw them away.
Dry out the interior. Open the windows and doors, including interior doors and drawers. Use a wet/dry vacuum or pump to draw out water that’s accumulated or puddled.
Run portable dehumidifiers and fans to help draw humidity and excess moisture out of the air and surfaces. If the walls show signs of water damage, remove your trim or baseboard.
Knock holes in the wall at the floor level between studs. This can help moisture escape that may be trapped behind the walls.
Check your appliances. A furnace and water heater’s main components tend to be low to the floor. They may need to be replaced or repaired.
Please share with anyone affected by #Irma or #Harvey that can be helped by this.
