Major Flood Damage Cleaning

Domestic Property in Greenford – Rapid Drying

rapid-drying-of-domestic-property_460_259_all_9Ideal Response responds to a major Domestic Flooding Incident in Greenford – Middlesex.

Christopher Read’s bungalow unfortunately suffered a major flood and was damp for quite some time before Ideal Response were called to respond. This incident resulted in water flooding up through the floors, and after a very short period was subject to mould infestation .

THE IDEAL SOLUTION

Ideal Response responded and removed the initial water from the remaining carpets, completed a through clean and sanitisation to all of the areas affected by mould. Once this work was completed the Rapid Dry System was installed to stabilise conditions within the building. A number of moisture surveys later – and with the drying equipment positioned around the floor, the property was drying efficiently, and allowing the project to move onto the next stage. No cleaning of personal items were required at this time.

Mould cleaning

A thorough deep clean and sanitisation was carried out on the property before the rapid drying was completed. As seen below the rapid drying was very effective and dried the property far quicker than the Insurer and Loss Adjuster had envisaged.

The flood damage caused major dampness to the majority of the ground floor, and the main infrastructure had to be checked to ensure the property was completely dry before the reconstruction could be completed. The total refurbishment took approximately 4 weeks, and the reinstatement was planned as per the schedule of works built by Ideal Response.

What makes us different?

Ideal Response are known within the flood damage restoration industry for fully documenting and validate their drying and hygiene cleaning as a matter of course. The documentation is provided to the client on completion of works undertaken after grey and black water incidents and surpasses “best practice” as described in the new British Standard PAS 64 “professional water damage mitigation and initial restoration.

The Rapid dry system is known within the industry as one of the fastest ways with positive hot air pressure to dry a major flooded property. This drying system can be used on major water damages to domestic dwellings as well as commercial properties. Heat exchangers connected to the Rapid dry system draws air external to the property which is then processed and passes as hot air into the water damaged building. This process causes a positive pressure inside the building and helps to reduce the drying time dramatically.
