When dealing with building, basements or cellars that have been affected by flooding whether caused by extreme weather or water ingress caused by a leaking pipe or roof, it is important to understand the short term problems and issues that standing water causes to the fabric of the building, as well as understanding the long term implications this can have and as such, the type of remediation work that is required.
We often find repairs to flood affected buildings are undertaken by general builders with little or no understanding of these long term implications and have no idea what can be expected when buildings get wet over the long term. Even long after the water from a flooded building or basement has been pumped out, some of the damage that has been caused isn’t always visible to the naked eye.
This damage can range from simple water stains, damp patches, peeling paint, rusty fittings and odour or mould to more serious structural damage that may threaten the integrity of your dwelling or business premises if the affected area isn’t dried out professionally and in the correct manner.
There is a technique to drying out areas affected by water and sewage damage and our specialist operatives that are all vastly experienced in this sector, combined with our drying and dehumidifying machinery means we can carry out basement and area drying quickly and effectively.
If your premises or property has been affected by flood water, a burst pipe or a sewage spill, contact us for advice, even if the water has receded completely the area affected will still require proper drying out and the sooner this is done, the sooner we can work out a restoration plan.
