Clothing & Bedding

Clothing, carpets, furniture, toys, bedding, etc. should be discarded according to waste hauler guidelines unless they are cleaned and disinfected. Movable items should be put outdoors to be cleaned and left to dry in the sunlight (if safe to do so). Contaminated clothing should be washed and disinfected or placed in a tightly closed container until your refuse pick-up day.

After clean up, make sure that all clothing and parts of the body that came into contact with the flood waters and/or sewage are thoroughly washed. Be sure to wash hands immediately.
