Nationwide Flood Damage Repair Services

After your home or business has sustained flooding, you will need to call a flood damage repair specialist as soon as possible. These specialists can minimise the damage sustained from flooding as they dry your home and sanitise it after flooding has caused contamination. DriTech employ flood restoration specialists who are all British Damage Management Association (BDMA) qualified, so they can restore your home to pre-loss conditions after flooding occurs.

DriTech experts can first trace the source of water, if it has resulted from a leak and then stop any more water from flooding into the building by stopping the flow at the source. This is done before any restoration work is done so the water does not return. Water can encourage the growth of bacteria and mould, as well as damage electrical circuits and cause swelling on the walls that lead to cracks within the walls. Therefore, it is important that first the water flow is cut off.

The air will then be dried using large extractor fans that can eliminate any remaining water vapour which would cause the problems to arise again. For home properties, Dritech’s flood damage repair specialists will have to perform content manipulation to move your furniture away from the contaminated area for full sanitisation and drying.

After drying the property, DriTech can then determine materials in the home that are most at risk for fungal growth and fostering bacteria. These materials will then be removed from the property and thoroughly sanitised, especially if they have absorbed more water than can be seen on the surface of the material. Electrical appliances are also more susceptible to damage and you can be compensated for these goods if they are irreparably damaged.

DriTech will always dry all affected materials to the moisture content levels advised by the British Standard, as well as ensuring the immediate and surrounding area has been restored to the pre-loss condition. Once this has been done, a certificate of dryness will be issued to fully certify that the restoration work done was to a high standard and adheres to all standards of health and safety.

If you have been affected by flooding and need flood restoration after your home or business has been affected by flooding, contact DriTech and visit www.dritech.co.uk to gain efficient service that adheres to all requirements of health and safety.

The Causes Of Cavity Wall Insulation Problems

Having Trouble with Cavity wall insulation problems? Usually with steel or wooden framed properties, there have been many occasions in which the insulation has been fitted into houses which is structurally unsuitable. Cavity wall insulation problems can also occur in brick or block work constructed properties near the coast as they are subject to wind-driven rain.

Leading to damage, reduced thermal performances and wetting of the cavity insulation, rainwater can penetrate the outer leaf of masonry under severe weather conditions. Resulting in areas of dampness, moisture is able to transfer from the outer to the inner leaves of the wall as there can be an increased risk of rain penetration if a cavity is filled with insulation.

It’s worth checking whether your home is at risk, even though cavity wall insulation causing damp can be rare. If there is a combination of these things, damp may occur in properties if:

  • Your home is exposed to severe rain
  • The external walls are poorly built
  • Your home is located in an unsheltered position

There can be gaps where the insulation hasn’t reached if it has been poorly installed. It may be recommended Cavity wall insulation problemsthat it should be removed as it can cause damp.

It’s possible that urea-formaldehyde may have been injected into your cavity wall if you had it installed a long time ago. Through a combination of gas released from the foam and damp, it can become harmful to your health and over a number of years it will degrade.

What are the signs of Cavity wall insulation problems?

Showing signs that it is defective over time, the installation can cause problems. Some problems with cavity wall insulation which you may notice include:

  • Damp problems, caused by warm air condensing onto cold spots that haven’t been insulated correctly
  • Cold spots, possibly caused by areas of the wall that haven’t been insulated correctly
  • Damaged cavity wall insulation, due to flooding
  • Mould growth, due to the damp
  • Wet insulation, due to defective mortar and water penetration

Leading to damp, the cavity wall insulation can become wet and is likely to dry out when a property has been flooded. The high volume of water used to extinguish the flames in the event of a fire can also water-log the cavity wall insulation.

It is possible to remove the insulation, regardless of whether you have a mineral fibre, expanded polystyrene or urea-formaldehyde insulation. This is usually done by drilling back through the holes which were used for the original installation. A high-pressure vacuum machine is then used to suck the insulation out of the cavity.
