Dealing with flood damage? We can help you with your water damage claim.
Experiencing water damage to your property can be a very traumatic and frightening experience. Flood damage can be the result of many factors like flash flooding, blocked drains, rivers bursting their banks and other causes.
Flood water, no matter what the source, more often than not becomes contaminated with sewage and other pollutants. If you have experienced flood damage in your property, it is important that correct sanitation is carried out before water damage repairs take place or dehumidifiers are installed to begin the drying process.
Comprehensive water damage restoration advice and consultation.
If you have experienced flood damage at your property your first instinct may be to have water damage repairs carried out as quickly as possible. Insufficient drying and poor anti–fungal treatment can lead to wet and dry rot problems within the flood damaged property, long after the water damage has been dealt with.
When it comes to good water damage repair it is important to remove all affected plaster and timber work and to properly treat and dry out the premises before re-instatement works are undertaken. Balcombes have published a guide book ‘In the Event of a Flood; A Guide to Dealing with the Aftermath’.
