Floodwater can cause varying degrees of water damage depending on its severity and floors, walls, soft furnishings and even building structure can all be affected. Floodwater can also contain hazardous waste, from visual debris to contaminants that can pose serious health risks.

What Can You Do To Help Limit Flood Damage?

There is a range of things that you can do to begin to repair the damage left behind by floods. Flood cleanup is a dangerous task and there is some crucial steps you need to be aware of before you or anyone else begins the process of clearing up after extensive flooding. Here's what you need to know:

  • First be safe - Before you do anything, switch off your electricity supply at the mains and do not touch any outlets. Consulting a qualified electrician is advisable.

  • Protect yourself - Flood water can often contains sewage, chemicals and animal waste, so wear wearing protective clothing (including gloves and wellington boots) if are in contact with it or contaminated items. 

  • Prevent further damage - Equally shovel mud and silt deposits away from both both sides of the wall, as removal from one side only could compromise the structure.

  • Clean - All affected areas, including floors, walls, doors and surfaces with disinfectant to avoid odours or mildew.

  • Drying out - If you have gas or oil central heating then keep it on at around 20-22 degrees for steady drying.

It can also help to be aware of a potential flood warning within your area, so you can put in place preventative measures such as sandbags and flood barriers.
