The importance of professional flood restoration

There are over 5 million properties in the UK that are at risk of flooding. With changes in weather patterns and new build locations, the risk continues to grow. It is important to be prepared but in the event of your home having already flooded it is good to know the importance of top quality flood restoration.

What we offer at Stephen Hodge Associates is the organisation, arrangement and agreement of flood restoration work on your property. We will visit your property to closely assess the damage and organise the highest quality restoration possible. We will liaise with your insurers so you don’t have to and our fees are often settled by them too.

In the event of a flood, we are here to help make your lives just that bit less stressful. We would also like to make people aware of the risks on their home if flood restoration isn’t carried out effectively.

Mould

Removing flood water and drying a property as soon as possible is key to minimising the potential for mould to grow. Mould can not only have catastrophic effects on your home and furniture but it can also lead to ill health if you are exposed to it for long periods of time. This is why it’s so important to have your property totally mould free before you re-enter.

Structural damage and subsidence

When a property is subjected to large amounts of water, furniture can obviously be damaged and need replacing. But something that causes us more concern is the affect it can have on the building’s structure. After heavy rainfall and flooding, the ground movement can cause huge damage to a property resulting in cracks in walls and floors.

Electrical flood damage

After a flood it’s extremely common for there to have been damage to your electrics. This can be very dangerous and work must be carried out by a registered electrician before you get back into the property.

With over 25 years of experience in flood restoration, we will do everything we can to make sure your property is 100% safe before you return. Contact us today to find out more on how we can help support flood restoration works on your property.
