...Preventing Mold After a Disaster...

From the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

This is an important message from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. When rain or flood waters get into your building, take steps to prevent mold growth. Clean and dry wet items within 48 to 72 hours. Keep wet areas well-ventilated. Discard wet materials that can’t be repaired. If you see or smell mold, clean it with a solution of 1 cup household liquid bleach per 1 gallon of water. To learn more, call the CDC at 800-CDC-INFO.
