Left Over Debris from Flooding
Flooding can bring in debris from the outdoors. The flood water will recede over time but the best way is to have the water extracted with a trash pump. The pump has a cage around it to keep the debris from being sucked up into the engine. However, the left over debris should be cleaned up by professionals.
Contaminated Flood Water
Along with the debris left behind will be contaminations. The building materials, drywall and wood floors, need to be removed from the home while wearing personal protective equipment. An EPA disinfectant should then be used on the cleaned areas to kill the bacteria from the flood water.
