or business is flood damage. When flooding happens it is important you appoint a specialist flood damage
contractor who can quickly get you back in your home. If many properties are flooded at the same time there
can be problems in appointing contractors who can deal with flood damage and the quality of repairs can suffer
as a consequence.

River flood damage
Our senior surveyor was called to one property
in central Carlisle where a firm of flood recovery specialists (who also happen to be a firm of carpet cleaners!)
were insisting they could not arrange replastering of a flood damaged house until it had sufficiently
dried out. The home owner had been hearing this same old excuse for months and decided to get a professional
opinion. Our senior surveyor was duly instructed and carried out calcium carbide tests at several key
positions throughout the house. The resultant readings were normal, the house was in fact within the normal
expected moisture levels for a house of this type and was able be replastered immediately. Our
surveyor asked the home owner exactly how tests had been done by the other firm, the home owner pointed to the tell
tale signs of where the test samples had been taken, our surveyor was amazed to discover the other
company had been carrying out tests below the damp proof course (where most old properties are continually
damp anyway), the home owners had consequently been out of their home for several months due to an
inexperienced contractors error. Who knows how long that would have continued had our specialist surveyor
not been called in.
