What do you toss out after a flood?
After a flood, it is important to know what items need to be discarded and what can be salvaged in order to properly restore your home. The first step is to assess the extent of the damage and categorize items as salvageable, non-salvageable, or potentially salvageable with the help of professionals.
- Non-salvageable items include saturated porous items that may harbor mold and bacteria, such as mattresses, pillows, carpets, and upholstered furniture.

How do you mitigate mold after a flood?
Floods can wreak havoc and lead to extensive water damage in homes or businesses. In addition to the immediate concerns of water extraction and cleanup, there is another hidden threat that lingers long after the floodwaters recede: mold.
Mold growth can start within 24 to 48 hours after a flood, posing significant health risks and causing structural damage if not managed promptly and effectively. Because of these and other risks, mold mitigation should be left to the professionals.
Addressing mold after a flood requires proper understanding, expertise, and equipment. By taking immediate action and contacting the mold remediation experts at First General, you can successfully mitigate mold growth and protect your property from further damage.
