With the recent flooding of our local river a large amount of homes had water intrusion. Many people had to even leave their home until the water had resided.
Unfortunately, unless you have flood insurance and the area is deemed a disaster, this is a problem that ends up burning a hole in your wallet.
Here's a few tips that you could utilize while trying to re-mediate your home or business:
1) Protect yourself, besides water being from the river it has also flowed up through the sewer into your home. Most flood water is considered sewage due to the high amount of microbial growth.
2) All carpet and pad will need to be removed. Make sure you get this up first, due to the amount of saturation they can hold. It's difficult to dry an area or dwelling if there is still saturated material.
3) Drywall will need to be cut and removed at either 2ft or 4 ft. If you keep it consistent, it is much easier to replace.
4) Sadly, most contents will have to be disposed of due to how contaminated the water was. Again, please protect yourself.
