Quick response services for floods and fires.
Recent flood damage to basements and cellars in South East England. Builders dealing with flood damage to basements and cellars need to have the correct knowledge and equipment when dealing with such issues. Most properties with basements / cellars get flooded with heavy rain full. The basements / cellars can get flooded with contaminated water from sewers and blocked drains overflowing. Our emergency response team can pump the water from your property within hours from your first phone call. As we are located in South East England our coverage is limited to the London, Kent and Surrey areas but may differ if you contact us first. Although insurance approved building contractors the cost will be down to yourselves until the insurance company agrees to pay for the works direct. We can carry out everything from pumping out the water to drying the floors and walls and then renovating the damaged areas caused by the flood.

Before the fire and smoke damage
The damage to this particular house was caused by an unattended pot on the stove in the kitchen. As you can see, the damage itself spread throughout the house affecting the majority of the rooms and its contents.
More pictures of the fire damage. We had to remove the gas meter and run all new supplies
All damaged surfaces were then stripped back to their original state and finished to the customer’s requirements. We then restored the kitchen back to a habitable and safe environment. We also incorporated fitting a new boiler into the works.
Full gas and electric tests were undertaken and once all works were complete the customer was then issued with gas and electric safety certificates.
