Flood Restoration and Water Damage Repair
Once a water leak starts, the size of the initial leak does not matter - it can quickly escalate, causing unseen water damage. This needs to be dealt with as quickly as possible to limit the effects that it will have on your property. By doing this, we can lower costs and minimise disruption to you. Exactly the same would apply for more widespread flood damage.
All flood restoration specialists at DriTech are BDMA/IICRC qualified and possess the level of competence needed in order to repair any property flood damage.
Water has the ability to not only corrode, but it can also encourage the breeding of life forms such as bacteria and mould. Then there are other worrying effects, such as damage caused by swelling in walls that have absorbed large amounts of water. There is also the danger that can arise from water getting into electrical components.
Specialist Secondary Water Damage Detection
Through the use of chemical testing, moisture detection and equipment specifically designed for use with water damage repair, we identify not only the source of water, but also the extent of any water damage that may have been caused. Also, if there is any potential of hidden secondary damage, it could form in the shape of mould spores, dry rot, structural cracking or fire risk.
With primary water damage, you are usually able to instantly identify the destruction that has been caused. One of the main problems you could face is invisible secondary damage. Moisture can quickly change from liquid to water vapour that can then travel around the property. Once this vapour re-condenses, it can then be absorbed by porous materials.
It is essential that all water damage repairs are completed professionally and thoroughly from the first assessment of secondary damage. Otherwise, this may cause damage that may not be noticed for many years to come.
