We work in conjunction with all major surveyors, loss adjusters and assessors and insurance companies, and we have a simple mission:
TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS
We are registered BDMA and IICRC technicians and have undergone training for drying after water damage.
ASSESSING THE DAMAGE AND PRIORITISING THE WORK
As with fire damage, water damage requires prompt action to limit the secondary damage and claims costs. Our Flood and Water Damage Repair Specialists carry out a triage process to Limitation of water damage to determine what work needs to be carried out urgently i.e:
Part of the prioritisation includes ensuring that any urgent action undertaken is cost affective. For example, some items may be at risk of further damage but have low replacement value
As a matter of importance, we also take photos and document for insurance purposes.
DRYING OUT YOUR POSSESSIONS AND PROPERTY
We remove the wet items which might damage polished surfaces, place wooden furniture on blocks to prevent damage from water wicking up legs, open doors to assist drying. If it is possible to do so, we also remove wet carpets and rugs within the property. Finally we sanitise and install dehumidifiers and air movers to start the drying program.
ASSESSING THE WATER SOURCE AND ANTICIPATING THE PROBLEMS
An effective and quick way of predicting some of the problems that we will face is by categorising water damage incidents by the source of water. The agreed classifications in the flood industry are:
IF YOUR HOME HAS BEEN DAMAGED BY CONTAMINATED WATER (BLACK WATER):
Contaminated water (black water) can present a risk to yourself and building occupant if the property is not thoroughly decontaminated. Care also needs to be taken during the cleaning process to prevent the risk of infection or risk from other contamination while the cleaning is carried out.
It is commonly understood that storm water may contain sewage, but you also need to be aware of the possibly of other types of contamination, for example from nearby industrial or agricultural premises.
