The growth of mold is a very common experience to commonly flooded and damp homes. Thus, it is very important to dry and clean completely the areas that get flooded and wet. Usually, mold manifests itself in the form of discoloration in your home or on your property; from white to green, orange, black and brown. Furthermore, it gives off an earthy or musty smell that can be harmful to the health of the family living in the house. So, if you just had a flood in your place, do not rush to get on with your life but take time to thoroughly clean the flood water before much further damage and problems arise later that can affect greatly your health and your home.

The most common health issue caused by the exposure to mold is allergic reactions. Such reported typical symptoms include respiratory illnesses like wheezing as well as breathing difficulties, sinus and nasal congestion as well as breath shortness, burning sensation of the eyes as well as reddened, watery, blurry, and light sensitivity vision, sore throat and hacking-dry cough, skin irritation, possible fever and then come problems in the central nervous system such as memory problems, constant headaches and sudden mood swings.

Before you start to work on your flooded home, always turn off your main power switch, especially if the wirings are wet and moldy. Before turning the power back on again, have your electrician check your entire electrical system for safety. Then, start removing the mud. Check your water system for leaks and then hose down your entire house as well as its contents. Use soap and water solution and spray it on your floors, walls, furniture, electrical boxes, sockets and other items that have mud. Wash and rinse them thoroughly. Scrub the affected area using a non-ammonia detergent or soap in hot water. A dry or wet vacuum is also very handy in this process.

Dry and disinfect the affected area and remove carefully the source of the moisture before you start cleaning up because the mold will grow again if the place becomes damp or wet again. Dispose of materials that have moldy residues like papers, rugs, debris or leaves. Items like plastic, glass or metal must be cleaned and disinfected first before keeping them again. Do not forget to wear goggles and gloves when handling those moldy items. This will keep you safe from any harmful effect that the mold can cause. Most of all, never ever use a gasoline engine inside your home because you could expose yourself and also your family to carbon dioxide which is bad for the health.

If you can still smell the mold odor after some cleaning up, continue drying out the affected area and just search thoroughly for any hidden places where mold is still present. Just continue to clean or just clean again and again the area where it still smells musty and then ventilate the area well. Do not replace your flooring or start rebuilding the place until it has totally dried up.
