If you’ve suffered any type of flooding in your home, be it from a river that burst its banks or a leaking water pipe in your home, you’ll know that the consequences for your flooring can be severe. If you’ve got a carpet, you won’t need to a floor covering expert to imagine the damage gallons of dirty river water would do to your shag pile. If you have wooden flooring, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that large amount of water can cause your boards or warp.
Whatever type of floor covering you have, it will be likely that you’ll need to replace it if your home has been flooded, along with anything else that has been damaged. This will be a huge inconvenience, but if you have decent insurance, your cover provider will typically put you up in temporary accommodation while things are put right.
This will be all well and good if you’re just dealing with your home, but what happens if you’ve got a business to run? If you run a pub or a restaurant, you might be tempted to keep your doors open if the damage isn’t too bad.
This will be entirely your prerogative, or course, but you should be warned that if any of your customers were to be injured in an accident that was not their fault that came about as a consequence of the flood damage, the injured party may be able to retain the services of a top 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors in Little Weighton with a view to suing you for compensation.
