Post Flood Information

Posted on

Before doing anything, you should contact your insurance provider to go over the steps they require.

There are many risks in a home that has been impacted by floodwaters:

  • human waste (raw sewage)
  • chemicals
  • debris
  • openings in the ground that you can’t see
  • damage to structures and utilities

Be aware of hazards and take precautions. Make sure the building is safe before you go in.


Cleaning up after a flood can be a lot of work.

  • Work within your limits and take breaks when you need to.
  • Ask for help if you need it.
