Efficient Flood Damage Cleaning
A specialist flood damage cleaning team
Flood damage can quickly and easily destroy a home and business; the aftermath can be a gut-wrenching experience to deal with. Floods can be entirely unpredictable and can last hours if not days, leaving a trail of disaster. While some homeowners can salvage their home, many find themselves faced with thousands of pounds worth of damage in repairs. When it comes to flood damage, it’s not just the water you need to rid the property of. If the area is left too long to fester, elements such as mould will begin to form, foul odours and toxic fumes will start to develop, all quickly increasing the amount this is going to cost to repair.
A flood within a property or building can be caused by a variety of elements, from natural events to a burst or leaky water pipe, to flash flooding, all of these events can happen without any prior warning. If you have unfortunately been victim to a flood and require a flood damage cleaning service, then feel free to get in contact with our support team who will happily give you the best advice on your situation and get a team out to you within 60 minutes of your call.

Why You Should Choose ICE
Our Flood Damage Clean Up Process
Flooding, whether in a residential or commercial property, can cause a severe amount of damage to the belongings inside and the structure of the building. The premise needs to be evacuated entirely and thoroughly assessed to ensure inside is safe before our technicians can begin to start the flood clean up service to get your home or business back to its original state.
Our teams will evaluate the entire property to ensure the leak or flood is no longer operating; our team will then begin to pump out all of the water so a further assessment of all damage can be recorded. All objects that unfortunately cannot be repaired will be removed immediately and disposed of in the correct manner. Our teams will try their absolute hardest to salvage any belongings wherever it is possible to do so.
Our teams are highly trained and will thoroughly clean your property with the leading industry equipment whilst also ensuring there is no structural damage that could put your life and others at risk if you were to enter. It is crucial to have the premise adequately dehumidified and dried out to avoid the build-up of mould spores and foul odours; both of which are a severe health issue if someone is to inhale the air enough.
Common Types Of Floods
From years of experience within the field of flood damage cleaning, we have narrowed down the four common types of floods that we get called out to. If you live in a flood-prone area, you need to plan for floods to happen yearly and therefore you should understand the types of floodwater that you may encounter. By understanding the kind of flood that is coming, you could save countless precious belongings and keep your property’s damage to a minimum. Below we have listed the four main floods that are likely to occur:
These types of floods are characterised by a gradual riverbank overflowing which is caused by torrential rain over a long period. The surface areas covered by a river flood entirely depends on the size of the river and how much the rain contributes. These types of floods rarely result in the loss of life but are known to cause economic damage to the local town.
The most dangerous of all floods there are, with flash floods the water moves at a swift pace, completely sweeping away everything in its path. These types of floods are caused by torrential rainfall and are known to take human life.
Strong winds or a storm that moves towards the coast during high tide will cause coastal floods. The winds will enhance the power of the waves, which will result in the areas becoming flooded. These types of floods are dangerous for everyone within the regions as individuals can be swept out to sea.
Cities have become so built up that the drainage systems often become overwhelmed by the amount of trapped water within the streets. The minimal natural drainage can be a high contributing factor to an urban flood. Urban floods are incredibly dangerous and cause the most deaths as driving can become near impossible to do safely.
