Dry Out Before Rebuilding

moisture meterMake sure the structural materials in your home are dry before you rebuild. Rebuilding too quickly after a flood can lead to mold growth and cause wood and wall coverings to deteriorate. County Extension offices have moisture meters you can borrow to check whether you've adequately dried the parts of your home that flooded.
