Flood Damage Cleaning

What you should know

Flooding is one of the most common natural disasters in the United Kingdom. If you add burst pipes and sewage leaks you can see flooding can affect many commercial premises. 

If your business is affected, Landmark Specialist Solutions provides nationwide support and can be on-hand to assist.

Following flood damage to your business, the priority is to return the premises to an operational condition as quickly as possible, minimising disruption to your business.

Flooding can happen at anytime and have a devastating effect on a business. There can be many causes: burst water drains, run-off from sudden torrential rainfall, overflowing rivers and burst pipe work. After a flood it is vital that the premises are assessed immediately and that all water-effected items are removed and dried quickly. This helps to prevent and reduce any further structural damage, whilst limiting the chance of mould growth developing which can lead to health issues arising such as asthma and pneumonia. Flood water can also often contain hazardous sewage or chemicals.

Landmark Specialist Solutions understands the importance of dealing quickly and professionally with the damage and harmful remnants that can be left behind after a flood and provides a fast and efficient clean up solution for commercial property owners. 

Once the premises has been safely evacuated, work can begin on restoring your business to full operation again. First we will pump all floodwater out of the building and assess the leftover damage. Then all irreparably damaged stock, equipment and room furnishings will be removed – we will attempt to salvage anything where it is possible to do so. The building will be extensively cleaned with our specialist equipment and checked over for any structural damage which could put you at risk. It’s then important to completely dry and dehumidify the entire area to avoid bad odours and the build-up of mould, which is not only unpleasant but potentially dangerous. Swab testing can be carried out before and after disinfection depending on the level of certification that is required for the premises and equipment.​
