Hopefully we have seen the last of the flooding and as water recedes people can start getting their homes striped of all the damage and most importantly properly dried out and decontaminated.

This is not a simple job and should be undertaken by a professional.In cases where homes had significant amounts of water for a period of time the process to be undertaken is not as you would do with your leaky pipe.

Stripping   the place and using dehumidifiers is not going to be sufficient so please use the services of a Public Loss Assessor to get the best advice on the process.
