If you couldn't afford to hire professional cleaning services, here it is some of the cleaning activity you can take to reduce the damages of your property in WestMidlands.
Cleaning the exterior
- Clean with non-abrasive cloths, rags and brushes;
- Clean all walls against fungus. Use towels and products for mold;
- Replace broken windows. This will secure the thermal insulation of the house;
- If windows can not be opened due to flooding with silt, than will be necessary to exercise and clean them thoroughly. Try to open them by pressing gently on the inside of the corners of the windows movable wings. Do not press too hard. If you can not influence them by simply clicking, try lifting them slightly and then press;
- If wooden windows are too damaged from water, replace them;
- If you can not open the door of any premises, do not press too hard. Probably on the inside they have deposits. If possible, try to enter through a window or in the adjacent room;
- Before attempting to open the door, see if they are locked;
- Do not attempt to straighten, varnishing, painting or repair the door before it has dried completely;
- To clean the doors can prepare a solution of 5 tablespoons of baking soda to 3 liters of water. Mix well;
- Wallpapers, which are absorbed much water should be removed;
- If wallpaper is not washable, but still need to clean them, use cleaner wallpaper;
- If wallpaper is washable, you can clean them with a solution of mild soap solution and water. We use two sponges. With the first rub soapy sponge and with the second rinse well with clean water. Work quickly to be able to wash the hills before it soaked.
- If the wallpaper has mold, you can remove it with a preparation containing talc or other special preparation. After cleaning and drying the wallpaper then you need to go again, this time with a dry cloth;
Walls and ceilings
- Verify that walls and ceilings are still with flat surface. If not, you may need to check the structure behind them for displacement or deformation;
- If the surface of walls and ceilings notice signs of mold or dirt, than they should be cleaned with a damp cloth;
- If there are stains on the walls, you can paint them with fresh paint, but only after they are completely dry;
- If you notice a wet plaster, better to remove it than to try to clean it or save. Restore plaster with fresh material;
- Do not attempt to straighten crooked boards or flooring before they are completely dry;
- Remove any carpets or wooden floors of the paths in order to dry completely;
- If there is still pent-up water, remove it immediately with a mop or cloth;
- Once the floor is completely dry, make sure you do not need a restore or strengthen nails;
- Small deformation can be removed by planing or sanding;
- If you damage your wooden floor is very serious, you may need to remove it and make a new one;
- If the insolation of your house (whether internal or external) is wet, it is very important to remove the wet areas and installing new insulation;
