7 Steps to Prevent Mold After a Basement Flood

The number one rule in preventing mold is the 48-hour rule– if furnishings or walls get wet from a storm or burst pipe, you need to dry it out within 48 hours to prevent mold from growing.

1. Turn off the electricity
2. Pump the water out of your basement
3. Remove all your wet items
4. Clean the walls and floor
5. Get the air moving and remove excess moisture
6. Look for mold and return your items to the basement
7. Keep a dehumidifier and air cleaner in the basement
