Largely, flooding is one of the worst things that can happen to us. Unlike flooding with rainwater or groundwater, not only do we have dirty water in our home, but hundreds of other items in our homes as well. In these situations, you should carefully consider disposing of any items that came into contact with this liquid. This is because we never know what was in it nor what it was composed of specifically. For this reason, it is well worth treating each of these items as contaminated and only using them after they have been completely disinfected.
Step one after this water recedes is to clean as quickly as possible. The removal of silt, sludge and mud is better when they are still wet because when they harden, it becomes increasingly difficult to remove them from nooks and crevices.
When the flooding involved dirty, contaminated, smelly water, it is likely that the above steps are not good enough. Flooding can be so destructive that plaster removal and tearing up of the parquet floor may be needed. Returning an apartment to its raw state involves a long period of soaking of individual elements. The removal of tons of plaster and square meters of leaking panels help to reduce the amount of dampness in a home, removing the remains of mud and allowing the walls to “breathe” easier so they can dry out more quickly.
