Water damage has so many sources that it is impossible to consider them all. Common sources include rising water tables from heavy rain, washing machines, dishwashers, backed-up of sewers, faulty sprinkler systems, frozen pipes and leaking roofs. Each situation is unique and requires a different approach, which we are fully equipped to provide.
Water damaged properties provide a ripe environment for the growth of mould. In order to prevent mould growth, it is imperative that a systemised drying system be initiated. Once started, we will monitor and record the environmental conditions within your property, including the relative humidity, temperature and the moisture content, to ensure that it is drying at an appropriate speed. Once your property is dry to pre-incident levels, we will issue you with a drying certificate so that any building or decorating work required may begin. Please note that if we are doing works to your property, as part of an insurance claim, we will issue the drying certificate to your claims management company as we are not authorised to provide this directly to you.

What you can expect from us :
Our initial undertakings will typically be to salvage personal items, provide immediate cleaning and sanitation and install any drying equipment to gain control of the internal atmosphere. A Health & Safety assessment will also be completed to ensure the area is safe for you and ready for our team to begin their work.
Any building materials that require effective removal from the property will be determined and detailed in our reports, with a clear understanding as to why barriers to evaporation are indeed required to be stripped out.
