After receiving your call we visit your property to carry out a survey and assess damage to your property caused by water leaks or flood.
We provide you with a full report detailing our findings and recommended actions for drying your property, eradicating damp and mould, and carrying out full repairs to damaged walls, ceilings and floors.
Our report includes details of property drying equipment and techniques we plan to use, how long the drying process will take, how we plan to monitor progress and full costings.
Once approved our property drying technicians visit your home to start the drying process.
1. Standing water is extracted using submersible pumps and vacuum pumps.
2. Once the water is extracted, all wet and damaged materials and contents are stripped out.
3. We install specialist drying equipment and start the drying process using either:
Convection drying using heat and ventilation. This method includes a high temperature “speed drying” method and traditional fan heaters but could also encompass use of the in situ heating system and open windows.
Dehumidification. The most common method is to use dehumidifiers and heaters. This needs to be done in a closed environment as it relies on creating an unnaturally dry atmosphere; the speed of drying is largely dependent on the capacity of the equipment relative to the space to be dried.
Drying methods may also be varied during the drying process as different phases are reached.
4. We carefully monitor progress to ensure drying takes place at the optimum rate, without causing other side effects.
At the time we’re satisfied the process is successfully completed we conduct our final survey to confirm results and the absence of any residual problems. The survey along with certificates of dryness are presented to clients.
