Drying out a flooded property
The process of drying a building after a flood can start immediately after the floodwater has receided. It is important that you contact us AS SOON AS POSSIBLE when you know you have a flooding problem, so that we can inspect your property and allocate equipment to you. We will deal directly with your insurance company and invoice them directly for all inspection, pumping, and drying costs.
The first stage of the process is for us to visit your property, and carry-out a thorough inspection so that we can determine the equipment required and the choices of drying method to recommend to your insurer (this is dependent on the age, style, and material of the building).
Once the flood is over, we will pump out the property using impellor and vacuum pumps, in order to remove all standing water within the property (and under the floorboards).
Once we have the standing water cleared, we will remove all contents from the affected area and begin drying the property using the method agreed with the appointed surveyor.
During the drying process, we will visit the property regularly to monitor the moisture levels, and will add, move, or remove equipment as necessary in order to ensure that the entire affected area is drying in the correct manner.
Once we are happy that the property is dry, we will ask the allocated surveyor to inspect the property and sign-off the drying phase, so that the renovation works can begin.
