After cleaning furniture and other home contents, you have to dry them completely. Please keep in mind that floodwater is contaminated water, and your carpets cannot be cleaned and sanitized thoroughly and will need to be removed. In general, porous materials will need to be removed and disposed of while other non-porous surfaces might be able to be salvaged with the right sanitization and drying processes. If the weather permits, take your contents outside to dry under the sunlight. You will also need to use air movers and dehumidifiers during the whole cleanup and restoration work. Water damage restoration specialists make use of these tools to reduce moisture within homes or buildings and promote better air circulation. You will need them to quickly dry various surfaces and building materials, such as your walls, ceilings, floors, etc.
