Flood damage can be caused by many factors ranging from flash flooding, blocked drains, rivers bursting their banks etc. When it damages your property it is a very traumatic and frightening experience.
Flood water, no matter what the source, more often than not becomes contaminated with sewage and other pollutants. It is important that correct sanitation is carried out before building works take place or dehumidifiers are installed and the drying process commences.
Initial instinct may be to get repairs carried out quickly. However, insufficient drying and poor anti-fungal treatment can lead to wet and dry rot problems within the property. It is important to remove all affected plaster and timber work and to properly treat and dry out the premises before reinstatement works are undertaken.
