Taking the right steps following a flood
For over ten years, we’ve been helping homeowners, insurance companies and the firms that work for them to recover and reinstate homes after a flood.
After an escape of water (EOW), the most important thing is to stop the cause. Then the drying process can begin. It’s widely accepted that an empty room, with a greater air flow, will dry faster than a room full of furniture. This necessitates removing and storing salvageable items, so that remedial works can eventually be carried out.
Benefits of removing the contents from the house include:
- Faster drying time
- Reduced risk of secondary damage to furniture
- Safer work environment for tradesman
- Easier work environment for tradesman, often leading to a better finish
- Peace of mind knowing your items are securely stored
We offer a full packing, removal & storage service with no limit on storage period and the flexibility to work around the policy holder or other tradesmen’s needs. We are often able to attend the next day.
Every job is treated with respect and care with an awareness that often a certain level of urgency may be required to avoid further damage or delays to remedial works.
