If you have any doubts at all, it is a good idea to rent a hotel room for a few nights until you can clean up properly. Make a list of contractors that you will need to complete work repairs on your home. This can include a local roofer, a water damage specialist, and a general contractor for foundation repairs. Have friends and family to help you in cleaning, as reclaiming your home is not a single person job.
