We are about to close out the month of January, almost a month after the historic flooding took place in the Greater St. Louis region, and several property owners are still picking up the pieces and cleaning up their homes after the flood caused so much damage. Sadly, many of these homeowners weren’t just affected by floodwater damage. They had also experienced sewer backups, sump pump overflows, and river flooding with several experiencing these issues at the same time. Some homes were flooded first by sewer water and then by river flooding, making the situation trickier to handle.
The flooding that took place in St. Louis this past month was nothing short of historic. As you probably know, the rising waters caused rivers everywhere to flood over plains, roads, and many homes and businesses. Stretches of major highways were also affected, and some were even completely shut down for days.
