With rising sea levels, climate change and the decline in natural soakaways (ie. more tarmacked and concreted areas). It is estimated that the risk of flooding will only rise and therefore the need for flood damage restoration will increase.

If you have been affected by a coastal, river, surface or groundwater flooding emergency, it is important that you act quickly to help prevent secondary water and flood damage.

Not only will prolonged standing water increase the chance of mould growth. But it can begin soaking into the construction of your building. Which will increase the complexity (and thus the cost and timeframe) of drying flood water in your building. And not to mention the health risks of coming into contact with bacteria and pathogen ridden water – river and sea water is full of animal faeces.

Flood Water Removal & Drying

Our highly skilled and experienced technicians will firstly extract the flood water from your building before stripping out affected materials and furniture. Drying of flood water will start once this is complete. In this drying stage we will remotely monitor the water damage restoration process. This allows us to stop at precisely the right time, keeping costs to a minimum.

Expert Flood Damage Restoration

Once the building is completely dry, we will start on the water damage restoration services. This includes the replacing of plasterboard, woodwork and dry-lining where appropriate. The water damage restoration service we provide is a complete service that ensures you will only ever need to make one call. All traces of water will be removed, your property will be dried and returned to a safe level of moisture and all water damaged contents will be restored or replaced by our experts. We will leave your building as close to pre-flood condition as possible. Thus, allowing you to get back up and running in the least possible time.

Danger and Health Risks of Flood Damage

Flood water carries with it several health risks, which can be a direct result of the flood damage or the secondary damage it can cause. One major risk is electrocution. It isn’t uncommon for a flood to cause damage to buildings and power lines. Which can lead to a live electric current being in the water, which is potentially deadly.

Sewage Contamiantion

Another risk of flooding is sewage contamination. Heavy, extended periods of rain can often cause sewers to overflow which can cause an escape of sewage. Raw sewage is full of harmful bacteria and parasites which can cause serious illness to anyone that is exposed to it. We advise that if you’re property has been flooded with sewage contaminated water you should look to hire a flood damage restoration or sewage cleanup service ASAP.

Flood water is full of bacteria and parasites, which will be left anywhere the flood water has been. Once the flood water resides or has been removed, those surfaces will be contaminated. Similarly, to sewage contaminated flood water, these surfaces pose risks to the health of anyone that comes into contact.
