What should I do if my property is subjected to flooding?
The best plan of attack if your property has been subjected to flooding is call in the professionals at an early stage. A reputable company experienced with flood damaged properties, such as Timberwise, would be able to diagnose the best way to ensure the property is dried out fully to avoid future problems.
There are various ways to dry a flooded property – these include:
Speed drying: This uses heaters and hot air to force the moisture out.
Fresh air: When conditions are right large volumes of relatively dry warm air over a damp surface will be enough to achieve very effective drying. Sometimes at certain times of the year the best way to achieve drying is to open all the doors and windows and simply let the air blow through the property!
If you have a property that has been subjected to flooding give Timberwise a call to see if they can help you. Call 0800 288 8660 or complete their on-line survey request form.
