• Remove excess moisture with a wet-dry vacuum and dry out the building as quickly
as possible (preferably within 24 to 48
• Use fans to assist in the drying process.
• Clean wet materials and surfaces with
detergent and water.
• Discard all water damaged materials.
• Discard all materials visibly contaminated
with mold.
• Remove and discard all porous materials
that have been wet for more than 48 hours.
