Recovering after a flood


If you had to leave your home, check with emergency services that it’s safe before you return. 

Your home or business may also need safety checks by the utility companies before you can turn the water, gas and electricity back on. 

See our bulky waste page for information on how to get rid of bulky waste

Sandbags cannot be reused after a flood because of possible harm from unclean water. You must take your used sandbags to the reuse and recycling centre

Mental health support 

Feeling tired, anxious, and having difficulty sleeping is normal after you've been flooded. Please contact friends and family during this time. 

If you need further support, mental health resources can be found on the MIND in Haringey website, or contact your local GP.
