Things You Should NOT Do

When you are waiting for the storm cleanup professionals to arrive at your home or business there are several things you should NOT do. Here’s a list.

  1. Spread contaminated water (treat it all as contaminated unless and until you know differently) by walking unnecessarily on damaged or wet parts of the building.
  2. Run or turn on the HVAC system. You could be blowing contaminated particles all over the building.
  3. Use household-type fans or window fans to dry out parts of the structure. This tends to spread contamination.
  4. Use any products exposed to flood water. This includes personal cleanliness products (soap, shampoo, etc.), makeup and, of course, food.
  5. Use a household-type vacuum cleaner or shop vac to remove water from the premises.
