Flooding can cause excessive mould growth which must be cleaned up before moving back to your home.

Large amounts of mould can cause nasal congestion, sneezing, and coughing, wheezing and respiratory infections and worsen asthma and allergic conditions. The key to preventing mould growth is to clean up and dry out the house as quickly as possible - within 48 hours. When cleaning up, open all doors and windows and wear protective clothing.
