When faced with disaster, one may not know where to begin or what to do when cleaning out our homes and businesses following a flood. To get started with this task, SDSU Extension has put together a list of resources to help start cleaning flood damages, personal belongings, and mold and mildew issues.

Remember to take care of yourself first: wearing proper safety equipment (rubber boots, rubber gloves, goggles, etc.), don’t over-exert yourself, take breaks, and wash your hands after each cleanup.
