What to Do If You Have Had a Flood
It is essential that any flood is treated promptly by a qualified and suitably experienced technician. If left untreated flood water will spread throughout the materials it comes into contact with and the damp, humid conditions will promote bacterial growth, mould growth, staining and potentially structural damage.
Prompt attendance to any flooding situation by a qualified flood restoration technician is important as they will extract as much water as possible, preventing it from spreading and reducing the amount of secondary damage. They will also be able to treat the flooded carpet and other affected areas to prevent staining and inhibit microbial growth.
As a general rule the sooner a qualified flood restoration technician is able to respond to a flood, the more water they can extract, the less secondary damage, the faster the drying time and the greater the likelihood of a positive outcome.
For this reason we have technicians on-call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and we aim to be at your property within 90 minutes from when you first contact us
