HEALTH AND SAFETY

HEALTH/SAFETY

 

  • If you have any open cuts or sores that were exposed to floodwater, wash them with soap and water and apply an antibiotic ointment to discourage infection.

  • Seek immediate medical attention if you become injured or ill.

     

     

     

  • ***Get Tetanus/Tdap if you have injury and have not had booster shot in 10 years. ***

  • Wash all clothes worn during the cleanup in hot water and detergent. These clothes should be washed separately from uncontaminated clothes and linens.

     

     

    If there is mold growth in your home, you should clean up the mold and fix any water problem, such as leaks in roofs, walls, or plumbing. Controlling moisture in your home is the most critical factor for preventing mold growth.

    To remove mold growth from hard surfaces use commercial products, soap and water, or a bleach solution of no more than 1 cup of household laundry bleach in 1 gallon of water. Use a stiff brush on rough surface materials such as concrete.

FLOOD PROTECTION
