What can I do after a flood?

Water carries contaminants and encourages mold to grow. After a flood, those risks may be higher than ever. When we use antimicrobial pesticides to control mold, we add chemical exposure to the list of potential risks. Always follow the label directions when using disinfectants.

Returning home after a flood

Cleanup and repair

Disinfectants, Sterilizers, Sanitizers

These are just a few of the tips you need to know. Check out the step-by-step field guide from the National Center for Healthy Housing.

If your home was not affected by flooding in your community, consider checking in with neighbors who might need help, such as the elderly or disabled.
