The effects of water damage to your home can be considerable. Flood overflow water is often contaminated with salts, sewage and nitrates that will affect your home if not treated in the correct manner. These effects may not show in the early stages post-flood, but ultimately will affect the properties structure over time.

The removal of affected building materials is essential and this needs to be coupled with a staged drying programme. There may also be a requirement for the use of antifungal, purification cleaning throughout the affected parts of the property.

Only once the above has been completed can your home then be reinstated to its preloss condition.

Getting the right people to handle your property claim following a flood is essential as if the correct steps are not taken, then your home could experience potential issues further down the line.
