BU455 Restoring a house after flood damage

From $13.50

Product Description

This bulletin is intended to assist with the putting right that is so important after a flood. It covers health and safety considerations, tips for cleaning up inside and outside, drying out the house and repairs.

These are some of the key messages in the bulletin:

  • People who live in low-lying, flood-prone areas should always have an evacuation plan and emergency supplies prepared.
  • If your house has a notice placed on it by the local council proclaiming it is uninhabitable, you cannot live in it until the sign is removed.
  • Flood debris should be cleared away as soon as possible so drying can start.
  • No finishing work should be done until the house is fully dry.
  • All services must be made safe before any remedial work begins.
