Cleanup Method 1

Mold spores or fragments may remain in some porous materials, but will not grow if the material is completely dried by using a wet vacuum. Steam cleaning may be an alternative for carpets and some upholstered furniture.

Method 2

Wipe surfaces with damp rags using plain water or water mixed with detergent solution and scrub as needed. If this process is being used on wood flooring, use specific wood cleaner.

Method 3

Utilize a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuum after the material has been thoroughly dried. Then dispose of the contents of the HEPA vacuum in well-sealed plastic bags.

Method 4

Remove any water-damaged materials and seal in plastic bags while inside of containment, if present. It can be disposed of as normal waste.
