The first thing that has to be done once the flood water has receded from your home is Assess the Damage:


Here are a few important things that need to be considered when assessing the extent of the damage caused by the sitting flood-waters.


- Water will find its way into every crevice in your home that it can.  So understanding that even if the surface of the floor “looks dry,” that doesn't necessarily mean you’re free and clear from water-damage in areas that you can’t see.


- What "type" of water caused the floor. Was is a backed up septic? Burst pipe? Hurricane flood waters? Depending on the type of flood water, even if the floors weren't damaged, for sanitary reasons, you may want to replace them entirely.


- If your home has been subject to sitting water for a good amount of time (days or longer) the chances are, not only your flooring will have to be replaced, but your subfloor will also need assessment.  If you have a plywood subfloor, the damage could be irreversible, and you may need to replace that as well.  If you have a cement subfloor, proper drying and then sealing should to be done before new flooring is installed over it.


-The biggest concern a homeowner faces is the impeding threat of the growth of mold beneath their flooring.  It’s incredibly important that you make sure that your subfloors are thoroughly dried, treated and/or sealed before installing a new floor covering.
