Additional Flood Resources

Additional resources for flood clean-up:

  1. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

  2. If you had more than a couple of inches of water in your home, the best way to clean up is by making sure you get the humidity out of your house with a dehumidifier and have fans going to dry the water. Mold grows the best if it is in wet conditions. A bleach and water solution can help to get the mold cleaned up if you didn’t have too much from the flooding. However, if you had quite a bit of flooding in your home, your nearby store may carry “Mold Armor” (this is a fungicide) which can be used to kill the mold if it is not completely dry. https://www.menards.com/main/housewares/cleaning-supplies/project-specific-cleaners/mold-armor-reg-mold-remover-disinfectant-128-oz/fg550/p-1444424269096-c-7106.htm?tid=-1525662011943094349&ipos=1

Be sure to wear a mask, gloves, and eyeglasses while applying the bleach solution as well as the Mold Armor!
