Why does it take months to recover from flood damage?

Flood damage is detrimental to any type of property, whether it's commercial or domestic. The biggest difference between the two is that flood damage affecting a domestic property means that your family may be disrupted for several months as you will have to live within your home whilst restoration work is carried out.

There are a number of reasons why it takes a number of weeks or potentially months to recover from water or flooding in your home. The biggest reason for the project taking so long is that the internal structures of the property have to be completed dried out to ensure stability and safety of your home moving forward.

Depending on the extent of the damage, it can take several weeks to strip back all furnishings and decorations that have been damaged by water, so that they internal walls, floors and ceilings can all be dried. The drying process ensures that the insides of the house is completely dry, ensuring no secondary damage is conceived post disaster.

Once the house is completely dried inside, restoration works can begin. If a water problem started above ground level, ceilings may need to be realigned, with ceiling boards also requiring replacement in Places. Working from top down, walls may need replace tarring, before paint or wallpapers can be applied. After these stages, carpenters, electricians and decorators will complete all necessary work before your home can get back to normal. Because of the various stages involved in the entire process, recovery can take at least 8 weeks, and depending on how long it takes for furnishings to come through it could even be longer.

To minimize the length of time it takes to recover from a flood damage incident, ensure you enlist a restoration company which can help you with your insurance claim by acting as a management agent. In this capacity they can help to ensure the project stages complete in succession with minimal delays, helping you get back to normal as soon as possible.
