Excessive moisture on affected surfaces will lead to decay and deterioration of affected building materials, components and decorative finishes. Unattended moisture can also encourage mould and bacteria to grow and thrive in the premises.

Frequently Asked Questions
What causes flood damage?
Broken or burst water pipes, water sprinklers setting off, leaking taps and rain storms are some instances that cause flood damage.
What are the effects of flood damage and when a cleanup is needed?
A flooded home/office that is not attended to will allow water to seep into the walls and floors which causes internal damage that is not visible to the naked eye. This can also cause the structure to weaken. The damp environment also increases the risk for mould growth. To prevent a full-fledged mould infestation, a flooded premise needs immediate drying.
What should I do if a pipe breaks?
If you notice a leak, first try and see if the leakage can be stopped. If there is any water in the house/premise, the electrical supply may need to be switched off to avoid damaging any appliances. Otherwise, consider calling a plumber to stop the water. Next, call a professional restoration company to assess the extent of water and to remove the moisture.
What should I do immediately after getting a flooded home/office?
After stopping the water, you should call a professional restoration company to carry out an assessment and provide the cleanup and drying process with proper equipment. This mitigates the potential flood damage to the premise.
Is there a difference in sewage leaks and regular leaks?
Sewage leaks may include discarded solid matter that is more unhygienic and damaging to the environment, with an unpleasant odour. Sewage leaks should only be dealt with by professionals to ensure that no unwanted matter is trapped within the premise.
