Safe Way of Cleaning Damaged Clothes During Flood Restoration


 
Home Improvement,Health,Crafts
People always take care of the big things first when dealing with water damage restoration. This is understandable as getting your home cleaned and your furniture dried should really be your top priority. But you also need to do water damage restoration for your clothes.

Clothes, because they are small, are easier to clean than say, furniture or carpets. First, simply get out all the clothes from the flood water as soon as you can. If your whole closet was soaked in water- take out all the clothes out of the closet. Do not just pile all the clothes on in one corner because this will be some serious cause for mold growth.

If the washable items are contaminated with mud or soil, rinse off the material as thoroughly as possible with a hose before washing. Items that are mud-covered may overwhelm the washing machine's drainage system. The last thing you want is a washing-machine overflow. If the soil in the flood waters is high in iron content, chlorine bleach can cause rust spots to appear on clothing. Separate treatment will be needed to remove the rust stains.

If your clothes have been soaked for a long time, inspect every piece of garment so that you'll know which ones you should get rid of and which ones you must perform water damage restoration. If there are clothes that have already developed bad mold and there seems no way to get rid of the mold and odor, simply get rid of them. This should apply easily for cheap items of clothing. You are better off losing a $4 shirt than stressing about getting the mold out of that cheap shirt.

If you have no time to do complete water damage restoration because of all the flurry of activities in your home trying to get things in order, just make sure that all the clothes that are wet but not visibly dirty dry out in the sun. This will prevent molds from developing. Your priority is still to be able to wash everything as soon as possible but if you can't make sure to hang your clothes out to dry.

If you do have time to wash them, separate whites from colors. Once you have sorted out the clothes that you need to wash- do not just dump each wash load into the washer especially if they are still all muddy. The last thing you need is a broken washing machine after a flood. Try to get as much dirt out as possible and do wring the water out before you put them inside the washing machine.

Your regular detergent may not be enough to clean the water damage on your clothes. Use bleach with a little bit of lemon on your white clothes to clean and disinfect them. Understand that for water damage restoration for clothes there are some pieces that you will need to wash more than once to get its old look back.
