How to take care and clean your flood damaged collectibles


ragnell's photo of water damaged comic books

This is a tip or some kind of advice on how to handle your collectibles, toys, comic books if they are damaged with flood waters. I know this is such a horror for all collectors and fan boys and looking at our precious items being damaged by Typhoon Ondoy and the unexpected flow of flood waters to our homes. The photo above is only a reference, but it's an example of a water damaged comic books that I found in Flickr. I just got lucky that my collectibles is stored in the 2nd floor of our house in Pasig, but  after cleaning the house few days ago, I saw a collapsible box containing lots of magazines and comic books. They are slightly damaged by moist and flood water, but I didn't dare to check it and kept it away, let's consider it that they are in the ICU of comics and toys clinic.

I have become a flood victim years ago, and it was a traumatic experience in the year of 2001 when I encounter a knee high flood water inside the house and in my bed room. Some of my comic book collections were submerged under flood waters and my toys too. Even my dvd player and VHS tapes weren't spared. And after cleaning my room, I did some things that are hmm effective in restoring some of my collections back to near mint condition.

The big clean up and volunteer stunt

I went out today and accompany Lace to drop off those clothes and food donation at Team Manila in SM MOA, and after our lunch me and Mark Cerbo went to Megamall to meet my sister. We bought lots of cleaning items like mop, floor matt, zonrox, drinking water and many more. After chilling some good frozen yogurt at Tutti Fruti, we make our plans there in how to clean the house. We rode the taxi going home in Santolan, Pasig City, upon arriving there I saw lots of trash and water damage items scattered in every corner of the street, and just found out that the residents who lived in the lower areas got their homes destroyed by the flood. Many people are in the street, while others stay in the Santolan elem. school and at the baranggay hall.

We cleaned up the house and its the flood is covered with mud. Its a brown mud or dirt soil, that I think came from the mountains. Its so weird that dirt will be coming in with flood water and instead of pure rain water. This might be the case of the rain washes down coming from the mountains of Rizal and Antipolo.

After cleaning up, me and Mark carried some of my fine clothes and shoes to the baranggay hall and donated it to the flood victims. Every place in the area looks in chaos and lives are not in normal. Mcdonalds store is full of customers and sari sari stores and grocery stores are jampacked. Tomorrow I will accompany Lace to do some volunteer work in Global city, she just told me about cooking and helping the people prepare foods for everyone. It will be a busy day tomorrow. so good luck and let's help one another.

Manila residents are now on the move and transfer to another location due to flood and mud flows. I'll be going tomorrow in Santolan, Pasig to get my sis out of there and also clean the house and check it for damages. Electricity, food and water is out already and its hard to survive there for another day with out clean water and food supply.
