Flood can cause devastation for the homes and families involved, with properties, furniture, personal belongings, and day to day life subject to damage and disruption.
Recent increases in heavy rainfall along with environmental factors have led to the risk of flood being a fact of life for many, so it’s a good idea to know what to do if you are affected by water ingress.
Government advice for action to take as soon as the water recedes includes:
- Take photos of any flood water remaining and recover personal items
- Check for any obvious signs of structural damage before entering the property
- Do not turn on electrical power until your home has been inspected by an electrician
- Make sure you boil water for drinking and cooking until notified that it is safe
- Help prevent mould by removing wet items straight away.
