Flood Damage Repairs

Flood Damage RepairsFloodwater may contain several contaminants such as petrol, sewage, silt, sand and other oily substances. When your property is flooded with such contaminated floodwaters, it is always recommended to seek flood restoration services. Water damage remediation work involves cleaning contaminated areas, fixing or replacing damaged wood, installing damp-proof course (if required), etc., specialists in flood damage repair are a suitable match.

Initially, the contaminants in flood water are diluted and present a low risk, but if the property is not cleared and sanitized on time, it can become a favourable environment for many water-borne diseases. In addition, timbers and masonry affected by floods are vulnerable to issues related to damp. It can also cause serious structural damage.

First, our flood restoration specialist decontaminates the entire property to prevent the growth of any water-borne germs, then a drying process is carried out. After that, an in-depth survey of the property is done to analyze the extent of the damage.

Due to Covid19, we follow all Government guidelines and make sure we still provide flood restoration services in homes and commercial premises. We take all precautions with regards to social distancing and the use of shielding equipment.

We are DPA (Damp proofing Association) and IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety) Certified. Our Damp and Timber treatment work comes with a 20-years guarantee backed with extra peace of mind.

After a Flood

The primary problem to be solved after a flood affects your property is to find the source of the flood, what causes it? This can happen due to sewage system failure, overflowing river or very heavy rainfall. The remediation for the flood-damaged property will depend on the cause of the flood. The measure we opt for flood restoration will vary according to the source of the flood. There could also be a possibility of more than one source of water inflow in your property. Therefore, all these things are considered before planning a flood-damage repair process.

The presence of any contamination should also be checked quickly as it also determines the process of repairing flood damage. You probably cannot think of any kind of pollutants in floodwater that is caused by a flowing river or heavy rainfall, but it should be noted that floodwater may have cached with many contaminating materials during the flood period. Possible floodwater contaminants could be – oil/other viscous chemical substances, seawater, black/grey water, sewage, silt, rock granules, salt, sand, etc.

If your property is filled with flood water above 0.6m in height or you notice any structural elements cracking or breakdown, we suggest contacting a structural engineer before any further treatment because this will prevent the occurrence of any structural failure in your property.

At Damp2Dry Solutions, we guide our clients thoroughly, making them aware of each step we take, to ensure the recovery of their property to its original stage.
