Insurance and flooding
You'll have to disclose that this house has been flooded. It's the law. Based on that, you need to document everything that you do from this day forward that addresses the issue.
Your insurance company may decide to drop you (or not renew) down the line if they deem your house as high risk. Based on this, the eventual buyer of your home may not be able to secure insurance for your home, and the sale will be nullified.
That's also why it's equally important to hire an enviromental consultant. He'll do his investigation before and after the cleanup. Only with his professional approval will your house be deemed mold free. Otherwise, nevermind a flood potential, your house could be labeled as a "sick house" too.
