How to Clean a Flooded Workplace

How many times have you been in a situation where your workplace is flooded? If it has ever happened to you, then the chances are that you don’t want it to happen again. You can help prevent this from happening by taking some precautions. This blog post will discuss some prevention tips and how to clean a flooded workplace when disaster strikes!

Commercial Flood Damage Prevention

Prevention is always better than cure, so if you can take measures to prevent a flood from occurring in your workplace, then do so. Water damage costs businesses thousands of dollars every year. Here are some recommendations of things you can do to prevent a flood from happening:

– Ensure that the drains and sewerage systems don’t get blocked.

– Have an adequate number of drainage points.

– Keep the building clean by removing any waste products regularly.

– Fit floor plugs in drains to prevent water from backup.

If you haven’t taken precautions to avoid a flood and it has happened already, there are some things that you can do before getting an emergency restoration company involved. These things include:

– Shut down the main electrical switch.

– Turn off water supplies and gas valves. 

– Remove sensitive files, documents, equipment, etc., to a safe place.

Once you have done all this, you can move on to cleaning up the flooded workplace. 

When cleaning up the flooded workplace, you want to move any excess water outside. If this isn’t possible, then remove it with an industrial wet vacuum cleaner. If the room is too big for a wet vacuum cleaner, then soak up as much of the water as you can using rags or mops. Then use disinfectant cleaners to clean the floor and walls. You can also use bleach to clean walls.

Once you have thoroughly cleaned the room, you need to air it out for 10-15 minutes. It is useful for removing bad odors, but it will also help dry the room faster. If possible, leave the door open and turn on fans or air conditioning units so that air circulates freely.

Bear in mind that while these measures are appropriate for smaller floods, if your workplace has been severely flooded or the water damage is extensive, it is best to call an emergency restoration company. The sooner they come, the less likely it will be for mold to develop.
