Flood restoration is a specialist task that needs to be carried out as quickly as possible to decrease the severity of water damage and the risk of future flood-related problems occurring.
With flooding becoming a more regular occurrence for many due to the extreme weather conditions we are experiencing more frequently, it can have a devastating effect on both businesses and homeowners.Water causes a huge amount of damage and it needs to be dealt with quickly to decrease the damage and destruction caused to minimise the risk of future problems.
When extreme weather conditions cause drains to overflow, the risk of raw sewage being swept into your home or businesses increases substantially. This can lead to contamination and a variety of health risks, which can be detrimental to your home or business. We help to minimise this with our proactive and reactive services.
The Various Types of Flood Damage
Clean water damage – This usually involves leaks from kitchen appliances or a water tank on the premises. The water is not high risk to human health but can cause damage to the local building structure.
Grey water damage – Although the water in your home may look clean, it can contain microbes which are dangerous to your health, such as water contaminated with urine. This is what we define as “greywater”.
Black water damage – This highly unsanitary water is contaminated by raw sewage or other harmful chemicals or agents and it poses a very high risk to human health.

It is important that you contact professionals as soon as possible when flooding has occurred, as the longer your premises are damaged the longer you will lose revenue.
The longer it is left, the more likely it is that mildew, toxins and bacteria will destroy the area, which has an adverse effect on human and pet health. Extracting the toxins from the area is essential and can only be done once the water is pumped away and the area is dried.
We are available 24/7 and are dedicated to responding to any queries, concerns and emergencies instantly. We will work quickly to extract, strip-out, dry and restore your premises to as close to the condition it was in before the incident as soon as possible.
