Remove baseboards and drill holes in drywall
The primary ingredient in drywall is generally gypsum, which will absorb water like a sponge. Even if you only have a few inches of standing water, the drywall can absorb water up into the walls, where you won't notice it until the drywall dries and warps. To avoid water damage, it is important for air to circulate up into the walls for proper drying. This can be achieved by drilling large holes in the drywall. By placing the holes low, behind the baseboards, they will be covered when you replace the baseboards.
