As soon as the water has been removed, you need to start drying the house. Drying the house as quickly as possible is vital if you want to avoid serious water damage. Additionally, mold will start to grow in damp houses within 24 hours.
The tools you need to dry the rooms in your home will differ depending on the rooms. If the flooding has affected rooms with carpet, you need to use a wet-dry vacuum to get as much water out of the carpet fibers as you can. Rooms with tile or laminate flooring will often be easier to dry.
However, you need to keep in mind that there are areas the water reached that you cannot easily see. This will include drywall and insulation in the walls. Many professionals recommend the use of a commercial air mover to force the water from your furniture, carpets, and walls.
Once you have removed as much water as you can, you will need to set up dehumidifiers in the affected rooms. These machines will absorb excess water from the air which helps to dry the room out faster. If you are still worried about the dryness of your rooms, you could contact a water damage expert.
