May I add my sincere good wishes to you and also say how sorry I am to read that your home has been attacked by the ghastly floods and weather conditions. It must have been a living hell for you.i can’t imagine what it must be like to see your lovely home being destroyed in front of your very eyes and nothing you could do to prevent the devastation. I imagine a sensible gentleman like yourself would have had your place well insured so at least that is a consolation. A lot of work awaits you.
Cleaning the house....could you employ a firm of deep cleaners? Perhaps steam cleaning would remove the filth and germs. I would be sorely tempted to power hose the whole place and place dehumidifiers to help with the drying process. After that, a team of decorators.
The only frightening thing is the thought of this happening again. I remember speaking with a man whose house was flooded here in Northern Ireland. As I recall, he went to enormous lengths to prevent the damage occurring inside again, he installed a system which stopped any water coming up through the drains and into his house. ( the river nearby broke it’s banks and flooded the area around his place). I hope you can do something similar.
Once again, sincere best wishes to you and all those other unfortunate people who were so badly affected.
