Floods can cause damage to floors, walls, rugs and personal belongings. After a flood, it is important to clean and dry affected items as quickly as possible to prevent mold growth. If flood waters contain sewage, it is important to disinfect contaminated items and to keep yourself from coming into contact with the sewage while you clean.
