Specialist Flood Water Damage Cleanup

Floods can happen at anytime and can have a devastating effect. They are caused by the rising of ground water levels, burst water drains, hillside run-off from sudden rainfall and flooding from the overflowing of rivers and seas.

Flood water can cause varying degrees of damage depending on its severity. Floors, walls, furniture, soft furnishings and even building structures can be affected.

After a flood it is vital that the premises is assessed immediately and that all water affected items are removed and dried quickly. This helps to prevent and reduce any further structural damage, whilst limiting the chance of mould growth developing which can lead to health issues arising such as asthma and pneumonia.

Flood water can often contain hazardous sewage as excess water entering the sewers can cause them to rupture.

What can you do?

There is a range of things that you can do to begin to repair the damage left behind by floods. Flood cleanup is a dangerous task and there is some crucial steps you need to be aware of before you or anyone else begins the process of clearing up after extensive flooding. Here's what you need to know:

    • Before you do anything, switch off your electricity supply at the mains and do not touch any outlets.
    • After they have been checked, keep your oil and gas central heating on at around 20 - 22 degrees for steady drying
    • Make sure you are protected - Flood water can contain sewage, chemicals and animal waste so ensure you are wearing protective clothing and wellington boots if you are around it.
    • Prevent further damage - Shovel away mud from walls evenly, making sure mud is not pressuring one side of the wall and not the other.
