Clean up safely after a disaster

Take steps to protect yourself, your family, and your businesses by deep cleaning after a hurricane, storm, flood, or other natural disaster. All Pro Commercial Cleaning with more than 15 years offers its experience to perform these tasks. Also useful advice is offered and we have a wide variety of cleaning supplies.

Before you start cleaning, make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment:

  • Helmet.
  • Protective glasses or lenses.
  • N-95 respirators (or others that provide greater protection).
  • Thick work gloves.
  • Waterproof boots with steel toes and insoles (other than just the steel toe).
  • Ear plugs or protective headphones (if working with noisy equipment).
  • At least two fire extinguishers (each UL rated at least 10A).
    If sewer is included, be sure to use the following during cleanup:

    • Wellingtons.
    • Rubber gloves.
    • Protective glasses or lenses.
    • Use the help of several people to move heavy or bulky objects.
    • Form teams of at least two people to work together when moving heavy or bulky objects.
    • Avoid lifting any material weighing more than 50 pounds (per person).

Prevent mold growth

  • Clean and dry your home quickly after the storm or flood; if possible, within 24 to 48 hours.
  • Ventilate the house by opening doors and windows. Use fans to dry wet areas.
  • Remove and discard anything that cannot be quickly washed or dried (such as mattresses, rugs, carpet padding, rugs, upholstered furniture, cosmetics, stuffed animals, baby toys, pillows, foam rubber items, books, wallcovering, and walls and paper products).
  • Remove and discard drywall or floodwater-contaminated drywall and insulation material.
  • Thoroughly clean all objects and surfaces that are wet with hot water and detergent for washing clothes or dishes. For example, you’ll want to clean all kinds of floors, concrete, moldings, metal and wood furniture, counters, kitchen electrical appliances, dishwashers, sinks, and other plumbing fixtures.
  • Fix roof leaks, water leaks on walls or pipes as soon as you can.
  • Eliminate mold with a mixture of chlorine and water

Never use chlorine indoors. Open doors and windows first.

Put on rubber gloves.
To prepare the cleaning product, mix 1 cup of household bleach with 1 gallon of water.
Clean anything moldy.
