This is a water damage restoration and clean-up checklist for homes, businesses and schools to use after floodwaters recede, the initial clean-up has been done.
After the floodwaters recede and the cleanup has been done, most folks want to get back into their homes or businesses and start rebuilding. The problem is that wood that has been submerged in water has likely absorbed a large amount of water. Rebuilding too quickly after a flood can cause continuing problems such as mold growth, insect infestations, deterioration of the wood and wall coverings, and carpet water damage.
Floodwaters are not clean water; therefore, most porous building materials must be removed and replaced with new materials. Use this eBook as a guide during your water damage restoration and clean-up process.
