When buildings are damaged by flooding it is important that flood restoration works restore the building to a habitable state quickly and effectively in order to mitigate the high cost of secondary accommodation. Innovative use of basement waterproofing methods and products allow a building to be repaired and reoccupied before the fabric of the building has totally dried. These techniques allow final drying to continue in the background without compromising the internal habitable conditions.
It is a good idea to build into any flood damage restoration scheme a system that can be more easily renovated in instances of further and repeated flooding potential. Impervious air-gap membranes not only allow drying out behind the decorated finishes but can also be recovered if future flooding damages wall finishes.
If your home is in a high risk flood area or it has been flooded before then you would be wise to take measures to mitigate the effects of flooding again in the future. Tips to provide flood protection include, but not limited to:
Store flood barriers, sandbags and airbrick covers
Buy sanitary ware plugs to stop water backup
Fill cracks in walls and at wall/ doorway junctions
Treat external walls with water repellent silicone treatments
Remember flood protection may not stop flooding but it is likely to reduce flood restoration costs.
