If a flood infiltrates your home, you’ve got to do much more than simply remove the water. You also want to clean the water so you don’t find mold growth later on. Fortunately, there are some simple strategies you can try on your own. Applying bleach to the floor, walls and ceiling is an effective way to kill any remaining bacteria. Wearing gloves, apply the bleach to the areas liberally and then use a brush to scrub the surfaces.
Water damage repair may be too extensive for you to handle on your own. This is where the professionals come into play. Water cleanup crews use heavy-duty chemicals to disinfect all places that suffered water damage. These crews also have the right protective equipment.
