Flood Damage Experts
It is important to us that our customers understand the short term issues that can arise as a result of flooding, as well as the long term implications. Flooding can cause a tremendous amount of damage in a very short amount of time, and unfortunately the longer you leave flood water the more damage it will do. The result of flooding in the short term is the immediate damage to your property and the stress caused, the long term implications of flooding however are often forgotten about because focus is given to removing the damaging water and getting yourselves back into the property, however flood damage often requires remediation work to make your business or home safe again.
Cosmetic Flood Damage
We often find that repairs are just carried out on the cosmetic area's affected - floors, furniture, but people often overlook what damage has been done to the flooring and wall that have been sat immersed during the flooding. Our team of experts will first start pumping away any residual water, then a check of the property is carried out to make sure no further work will be required to ensure the safety of our customers. We then carry out extensive deep cleans to ensure any toxins and bacteria left by the flood water have been removed. Finally we can begin to work on repairs to damaged flooring and any structural issues that may have arisen.
It is important to everyone that a proper decontamination take place so that we can sanitise the whole area and make sure that any areas affected by flood damage have been thoroughly dried out. It is important for your health that any residual toxins are removed and this can only be done once all the water has been pumped away.
Health Hazard Mould can be a health hazard, if you notice it start to form please contact us immediately here
Pumping Away Flood Water
Leaving flood water to drain away naturally is often not the best thing to do as the water is likely to be teeming with bacteria that can cause health issues if left to fester.
