Repairing Flood Damage

A flood can be a devastating event that can damage commercial or residential property and anything inside it. If your home or business has been damaged because of flooding from a natural disaster, roof leak, or plumbing issue, you may have a long list of repairs and replacements that are needed to restore your property to its original condition. If you have insurance, you should check the terms of your policy to determine whether flood damage is covered as part of your plan.

Flood Damage Repair Steps

When your property is affected by flooding, it is important to first and foremost have someone inspect your property to determine the extent of the damage and the estimated repair or replacement costs. If you have insurance, have an adjuster visit before you invest any money in cleanup. Once the full extent of the damage has been recorded, you can begin to restore your property. Typically, repairing a home or business after a flood is an intensive process involving:

  • Water extraction from the flooring, carpet, furniture, and foundation
  • Removing all permanently damaged property
  • Drying all surfaces of the property to prevent mold growth
  • Cleaning all surfaces affected by the flooding
  • Repairing or replacing damaged goods
