Flood Water Removal
We specialise in removing flood water from many types of surface including carpets, tiles and wood flooring. Our specialist pumps can remove any surface water that may have collected in pools inside your building – and its fast too – with our pumps being capable of removing up to 9000 gallons of liquid per hour from both internal and external surfaces!
Drying Out / Dehumidification
Our range of dehumidifiers will then quickly and quietly dry your building whilst removing the smell of damp at the same time. Just in case its needed, we use specialist damp meters to target the worst affected areas to ensure that they are properly dried. Finally, we use deodorisers and disinfectants to kill whatever germs might be leftover from the flood damage and leave the building smelling fresh and back to normal in no time!
Depending on the extent of flooding, or machines may need to be left in situ for between 1-2 weeks. If this is the case, we will show you how to use the machines and come back to collect them once they have served their purpose. Even with our dehumidifier rentals service, we will first remove any standing pools of water with our specialist water pumps.
