water damage / flood loss


Water damage caused by floods, leaking plumbing / appliances, pipe bursts, sewer backups etc. can lead to significant restoration costs if not addressed promptly. When a flood loss occurs, a proper assessment and implementation of appropriate remedial measures in a timely manner is crucial to protect assets from mould growth. Just as important is ensuring the work is done in compliance with environmental, health & safety legislation and current industry standards and guidelines.
