Damage That Occurs From Water
Water is known as the universal solvent for a very good reasons. Water has the ability to corrode materials and provides a breeding ground for mould and bacteria. Various other damaging effects will occur such as the cracking or swelling of materials and electrical faults.
Water damage isn’t only caused by flooding and burst pipes. Water from the Fire Brigade extinguishing a fire will also cause damage. We are at hand to help you through the entire restoration process.
Water and Burst Pipe Repair
Our Surveyors use thermal imaging, non-intrusive moisture detection and specialist testing equipment to not only find the source but also identify the true extent of damage. As a preventative measure we will treat the affected surrounding materials to prevent secondary damage such as rot and mould infestation. Primary damage from water ingression is usually instantly identifiable, however it is secondary damage, as the moisture changes from a liquid to a vapour, that we are most concerned about as this travels throughout the building and condensates being absorbed into porous materials.
This creates hidden damage that often rears its head in several years’ time. Secondary damage and its subsequent effects are preventable if all water damage repairs are conducted thoroughly and professionally. Our Response teams will use equipment to dry out all humid air within a property to ensure no water vapour is left that would harm finishes and materials.
