Domestic & Commercial Water Damage Surrey
With two rivers running through Surrey, the river Wey and Mole, the risk of flooding is a very real possibility. Not to mention the fact that in the UK a rainy day is never too far away. Because of this we offer a flood damage Surrey cleaning service. Our flood cleaning Surrey service will ensure that:
- All remaining flood water is removed
- Your Surrey property is extensively dried
- All surfaces are completely sanitised
- Flood damage cleaning process is fully documented
Once the flood damage cleaning service is completed your Surrey property will be left as close to its pre-flood condition as possible. Meaning that all items that have been damaged beyond repair have been safely disposed of and no obvious indication of a flood remain. To achieve these results, our technicians use industry leading technology and techniques to complete each phase of the service. We recommend that no matter the size or scale of the flooding, you should seek the help of a professional service provider like Ideal Response. This is due to the potential dangers associated with flood water.
We provide our water damage restoration Surrey services to all types of properties. We also tailor the service to minimise disruption to your home or business. No matter the size of the property we deliver the highest standard of service in Surrey:
Expert Flood Damage Cleaning Surrey
Ideal Response has been providing flood water damage cleanup & flood damage restoration services for 20+ years. In this time, we have helped return countless Surrey properties back to a safe and habitable condition. Our process has been continuously improved over the course of our time in operation. As a result, our water damage cleaning Surrey service will deliver the best results in the most effective and efficient means. Thus, greatly reducing the disruption to your home or business.
Using state-of-the-art water pumps and wet vacs we begin the service by removing all traces of remaining flood water from within your property. Due to the high amounts of bacteria, viruses & pathogens present in flood water, this stage of the process is completed using personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep our technicians safe. This is another reason as to why flood damage cleaning is left to professionals. Depending on the source of the flooding the water can pose significant risks to health.
- Clean Water – Flood water from clean water sources is less likely to be contaminated. But once the water escapes the inlet pipes and floods a property it cannot be guaranteed that it is completely safe.
- Grey Water – Grey water comes from your sink, shower, dishwasher or washing machine. It is used water that is free from sewage. Grey water flooding is more likely to have bacteria, viruses & pathogens than clean water but it should be handled with care and PPE.
- Black Water – This type of flood water is extremely dangerous due to the fact it is contaminated with raw sewage. Contact with this type of water is to be avoided at all costs and must be handled by experienced professionals. Exposure to it can cause numerous health issues and disease.
This stage of the process is extremely important, this is due to the potential of secondary damage occurring. When flooding occurs, the surfaces will become saturated and the moisture content inside your property will increase dramatically. These factors alongside the high concentration of bacteria in the water itself create the perfect environment for mould and other fungal growth to occur.
Again, hiring a professional is important due to the difficulties of fully drying your Surrey property. At Ideal Response we utilise several different pieces of equipment that ensure complete drying of a property. In most cases, room dehumidification equipment will be used in accordance with a calculated drying regiment designed to dry surfaces and return the moisture content to a safe level. Without such equipment it is extremely difficult and in some cases impossible to dry a saturated surface. This is another reason why hiring an expert is the safest choice.
Any surface the flood water encounters will be contaminated. This poses a risk to the health and well-being of anyone that enters the property. Failure to fully clean all the surfaces within a flooded property will result in a high concentration of bacteria. Secondly it could result in mould proliferation as time passes. In this stage of the flood damage cleaning process, we will manually washdown each surface. We also use ULV foggers to completely decontaminate the air & surfaces in your Surrey property.
We ensure that all surfaces are 100% decontaminated and your property is once again safe for habitation or work. Our process delivers these results in the most efficient and effective way, meaning that you will be saving both time and money by hiring our flood damage Surrey service.
Why Should You Hire Ideal Response?
The primary damage of a property flood is one aspect of the issue. The potential of secondary damage occurring is another issue. Secondary damage is likely to occur when the primary damage goes untreated or is not done to a high enough standard. A professional flood restoration service provider like Ideal Response guarantees the primary damage is dealt with to the highest standard. Subsequently reducing the chance of any forms of secondary damage occurring.

Emergency & Non-Emergency Flood Damage Response
In order to prevent further damage to your property, it’s imperative that you hire a flood damage expert in Surrey as soon as possible. Failure to do so is likely to result in secondary damage and greater issues. If the flood is left untreated it can lead to damp and mould. Another major concern is it potentially causing structural damage to your property. We highly recommend that for any flood or water damage related issues that you hire an expert as quickly as possible. At Ideal Response we have an emergency callout service that means we will be with you within two hours of receiving your payment. Arriving quickly, assessing the issue and beginning the service will mean your property will be returned to its pre-incident condition quickly. As well as minimising costs and potential secondary damages.
If the damp is allowed to spread to structural masonry or timber it could potentially lead to very serious structural issues in you property. In some extreme cases even catastrophic structural damage. Mould can also have an extremely detrimental effect on your property. Mould and fungus can cause structural damage as well as potentially causing respiratory issues to the inhabitants. It will take a longer period of time for mould to have such a catastrophic effect on your property. But, we still recommend that anyone facing the effects of flood damage should look at hiring a flood damage cleanup provider as soon as possible rather than allowing the property to further deteriorate.
