What to do when you’re faced with a flooded property and need flood restoration

flooded house flood restoration

In recent years, the UK has been hit with a number of devastating storms which have caused unprecedented water damage to homes across the country, especially in the north. According to the BBC, the overall cost of excessive flooding caused by Storm Desmond and Eva has been estimated to top £1.5 billion, an expense that many residents of the UK have been having to bear on heavy shoulders.

Facing a flooded house can be an incredibly traumatic experience and it’s often difficult to know where to start when it comes to flood restoration. It’s crucial to assess the true extent of the damage as early as possible in order to detect and limit any water damage before it gets worse. In some cases, it might be unsafe to enter the property and, if possible, you should seek out the advice of a Chartered Surveyor prior to returning home.
