The Property Drying Specialists
Drying a property after a flood or water damage is not simply a case of emptying a room and plugging in dehumidifiers, despite what some drying companies and home insurance companies might tell you.
Moisture has a habit of getting behind the plaster so the walls often need to be stripped before drying can begin.
Water can also lay dormant under laminate flooring for a long period of time before you even realise there has been a leak, and a water-damaged floor must be completely dried back to the DPC before replacing the laminate.
Flood damage can be devastating and deep-rooted. It can cause structural damage, and can even undermine a building’s foundations and structural integrity. As such, is it vital that any flood damage is investigated in full, as the damage you can’t see is usually far greater than what you can see.
One common mistake we see, is insurers trying to begin repairs before the damp is fully eradicated. It may look ok for a while, but after a few months, any damp trapped by the new plaster and finishing materials will start to appear.
Damp also comes with health risks. It important that you DO NOT attempt to, or be persuaded to live in a house that has a high moisture reading.
