After a flood

If you have been affected by flooding:

  • Take care as there may be hidden dangers in the flood water like sharp objects, raised manhole covers and pollution.
  • Flood water could have caused structural damage to your property.
  • In almost all cases the insurance company will send a loss adjuster to look at your property. They will confirm what repairs and replacements are needed and covered by your policy.
  • If you rent your property, contact your landlord and your contents insurance company as soon as possible.
