Flooding: What items can be saved?

Flooding: What items can be saved? - Pic 1

Flood damage can be devastating. It can affect any and all contents of your home and commercial property. Mould toxins, which proliferate after a flooding event, can cause serious respiratory and neurological problems. Knowing which items can be saved and which cannot will help alleviate your stress and also limit further mould exposure. Items such as upholstered furniture or books, for example, can hold mould toxins indefinitely. Leaving them on the premises can jeopardize the safety of your family, tenants, or employees.

Other items, however, can be professionally restored. Calgary-based Astra Restorations offers both flood damage restoration and mould remediation services. Our highly trained team with specialized equipment will restore your property and most of your belongings.

Remember, many items can be safely restored and cleaned after flood damage. Importantly, though, these items are not safe until they have been treated by a specialist. Until then, these items can still make you and your family, tenants, and employees sick.

ITEMS TO DISPOSE OF

As a general rule, soft items (fabrics, paper, etc.) that cannot be easily laundered should be thrown out. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Carpet, carpet underlay, and rugs
  • Upholstered furniture
  • Shoes
  • Paper and books
  • Foods and canned items
  • Any electronics with fans, including computers, air conditioners, microwaves, etc.

ITEMS TO KEEP

The following items can be kept or restored by a trained technician:

  • Hard, non-porous items, such as jewelry, dishes, and metal
  • Wood furniture if in good condition
  • Electronics and appliances without fans
  • Undamaged clothing (these need to be properly laundered)
  • Undamaged artwork and textiles
  • Only necessary and important documents (to be kept in sealed bags)
  • Photographs (should be scanned then disposed of)

Remember, keeping unsafe or untreated water damaged belongings around you can continuously expose you to health-destroying mould toxins. Having a trained team treat these belongings will save your health both in the short-term and over the years.

Astra Restorations, based in Calgary, Alberta, has the team to restore your water-damaged property and belongings to their previous condition.
