You can restore things that have faced little damage but there is no use to keeping the fully damaged items. They will just take extra space in your basement. Another problem caused by these extra items lying in your basement is the fungus production and health related issues caused by them. So, it is better to just dispose of these damaged products.

You need to clean and scrub all the walls, ceilings, furniture and utensils in the cafeteria with disinfectants. You can make the use of chlorine as it acts as a good disinfectant. All the drawers and cupboards should be dry before placing items inside them. The carpets and lab equipment should be removed and dried thoroughly. If the furniture is still inside, it will swell up that will make it difficult to close the drawers and closets. They will eventually break off increasing the costs further. If it is summer season, you can open the windows of the institute allowing air to ventilate and dry it out completely. You can always contact flooding cleanup companies Georgia to assist you in the cleaning process.

All the important documents should be cleaned with great care. If the humidity is still there, it will damage them all making them of no use. Once properly cleaned and dried, laminate all these documents for protection in the future. Books, laboratory instruments, swings, play areas and sports equipment must be dried out fully. Care should be taken while cleaning the play grounds as carelessness may cause damage to children’s health. If swings are not properly dried out, they will start rusting. These rusted swings may break later causing harm to children.
