Mold After Basement Flood

After a flood, it can be hard to figure out what to do and in which order.  Below is a list of 7 steps to follow after a flood in your basement.

Step 1: Turn of the electricity.  Do NOT enter the water in your basement until knowing the electricity is off to avoid shock.  You'll want to bring a flashlight

Step 2: Pump the water out of your basement.  This is where you can benefit from having a water extraction company help remove the water quickly and efficiently. 

Step 3: Remove all your wet items

Step 4: Clean the walls and floor

Step 5: Remove moisture

Step 6: Make sure mold has not begun to grow

Step 7: Use a dehumidifier
