If you have suffered the unfortunate event of flood damage to your home  / property or business it is a key priority of ours here at London and Kent Construction Ltd to restore the property to its original condition as quickly as possible to minimize the risk of possible secondary damage.

Firstly, London and Kent Construction Ltd will inspect and determine the cause of the type of water damage that the property has sustained. Some of the most common causes of water damage are broken water pipes, appliance malfunctions, heavy rainfall and inefficient disposal of sewage.

Secondly, to ensure that any further influx of water is prevented, London and Kent Construction Ltd will carry out an inspection of the area. Various methods of the restoration process are used, from basic soaking up and mopping up of the excess water to using pumps, water vacuums and dehumidifiers depending on the extent of the water damage to the inspected area. The dehumidifiers will be used to extract all the excess moisture from your home. Dehumidifiers work by separating the moisture from the air, sending the water out and then re-circulating warm dry air back in the home to assist the evaporation process.

London and Kent Construction Ltd consider water removal to be the biggest part of the water damage repair and restoration process.

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.
