How to clean your home and surroundings effectively after a flood


The Philippines, being a tropical country, experiences typhoons, tropical storms and monsoon rains almost all year long.

An average of 20 typhoons hit the country every year. Five of the most destructive typhoons occurred between 2009 and 2012, according to the National Disaster and Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC).  Climate change has brought about extreme weather and it looks like it is bound to get even worse.

The monsoon rains that submerged the metropolis in floods, mud and trash in August proved to be one of the most destructive and dangerous for metro and suburban residents. After the floods, the danger remains. Bacteria, fungi and viruses threaten to compromise the health of families, indoors or outdoors.

Stanhome World, the No. 1 Direct-Selling company in the European Union, shows how mothers can clean up their homes and make their surroundings safe for their families and household members.

1.     Check cabinets, containers and entire areas in the house for wet spots and soggy clothes. Wet garments and cloths accumulate bacteria and molds which may be harmful to health. Wash the cloths and garments with laundry powder and fabric conditioner that have anti-bacterial properties, like Stanhome World’s Prime Wash laundry detergent and Prime Wash Fresh Bloom. Its Sani-Soft Fabric Conditioner also repels bacteria and is phosphate-free.

2.     Floods also cause mud residues to stick to walls and other surfaces. Soap and detergent are not enough to erase them; chlorine may ruin paint or wallpaper. Stanhome World’s Try-It Super Concentrated Cleaner is formulated for difficult cleaning needs like tough stains from mud, grease and smudges on resistant surfaces like concrete, coarse fabrics, plastics, and wrought iron. The less dirt, the less germs in the home.

3.     Floods bring waste and all manner of dirt inside the home. Sanitation is a must for floors and other submerged parts of the house that are teeming with bacteria and fungi. Stanhome’s Germ-Trol is a powerful disinfectant that can effectively kill 99.999% of viruses, bacteria and fungi. After application, it prevents build-up of microorganisms on treated surfaces for longer-lasting protection.
