Where to start after a flood.

Heavy rains and flooding can catch homeowners and communities off guard by rapid rising waters. A few tips may help to counter the chaos in the aftermath.

  • Get rid of standing water with a pump or a wet/dry vac. The longer water hangs around, the more likely it is that mould growth will occur and this poses a health risk.
  • Remove damaged rugs, carpets and furniture that is beyond saving.
  • Airing the property soonest is vital to reduce moisture. Open doors, windows and cupboards to allow a breeze through and boost it by using fans. A dehumidifier will help combat humidity and moisture absorbing desiccants such as silica gel will rid closets of moisture.
