Initial Response & Survey
- Upon visiting your property, we will conduct a risk assessment & survey to ensure that you are as safe as possible & any potential hazards are identified. This will also inform our report to your insurance company. Anything that can be done immediately to reduce any potential for further damage will be initiated at this point.
- We will then share our findings with you & ensure you understand the proposed work.
- At this point, we will outline a clear plan & obtain your consent to continue. We are able to liase with your insurance company’s loss adjustor if required.
- Using moisture sensor instruments, specialist cameras & physical surveying methods our technicians will then inspect all areas to detect the extent to which water has spread. This is key to creating a drying plan.
After the drying plan has been agreed, we will then:
Our Water Recovery Method
1. High Volume Extraction – recover as much waste water as possible from floors, cavities, carpets etc. using our industrial extraction machines.
N.B. If water is contaminated, this will involve likely evacuation of your property & appropriate protective measures put into place to ensure contamination risks are contained.
2. Removal/ assessment of furnishings. Property & furnishings undamaged will be removed from the affected areas. Soft furnishings that are damp can either be treated in situ or removed for treatment.
3. Application of anti-microbial to mitigate any potential for bacterial onset (very likely in the increased humidity environment).
4. Rinse & recover waste water from the carpet a second time to ensure any contamination is thoroughly removed.
From this point onwards, the procedure will vary depending on the particular circumstances of the job.
This is an approved, thorough procedure that is designed to rapidly secure a positive outcome for your soft furnishings and avoid the often unnecessary step of replacing your carpets.
If you’ve recently been flooded & would like to find out if we can help, please get in touch for a no-obligation discussion with one of our technicians.

Yesterday, we were called out to investigate a flood in a basement bedroom. A rapid response is vital in flood restoration work, so we attended the property within three hours of the initial call. Unfortunately, the owner had called another company 4 days ago! Needless to say, this company had not turned up. Unfortunately, this contributed […]
