As the title says. I had a sewer main become blocked this past Tuesday causing ground water that would normally have left through the pipe to fill my basement/Batcave to a level of 6 to 8". Some stuff is basically ruined or degraded seriously. My biggest worry right now though is my boots. I hade somewhere in the neighborhood of 14 to 18 (not even sure) pair of leather Bat boots down there that basically fell over and filled with water. Anyone know how to clean and disinfect them? or where I might take them for the service? On top of everything else I'm diabetic so I really can't take the chance of putting on boots that have a fungus or worse growing inside of them (I'm very prone to athletes foot). Any guidance would be appreciated. The insurance adjuster is coming tomorrow to assess the damage but people like that don't have a clue what a hobby like ours involves. These are not "off the shelf" boots for the most part.
Thanks in advance.
