Post Flood InformationPosted 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)
- 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.
