If a flood has occurred in your home, you need to have a professional come to your home and fix damp proofing that may have been damaged. Wood that is exposed to water for an extended period of time may start to rot. When this happens, the integrity of the home may be compromised and it could cause a serious issue to occur. You can have someone come to your home and inspect the entire property to make sure that there are no issues that need to be addressed immediately. If there are, you need to get them fixed as soon as possible.
