Flood Damage

Floods can cause serious damage to properties, and if left uncontrolled, can also lead to diseases and further deterioration that could be prevented.

Orchard Preservations undertakes the control and prevention of flood damage in Devon. We have more than 20 years of experience in this field and are equipped to handle both small and large projects. We have worked with homes, offices, and even shopping centres, and have successfully managed to decontaminate and dry the property after water damage.

Our flood damage services include removing all the water and drying the property completely. Apart from this, we will also remove any mould that has sprouted up due to water damage, remove any damaged drywall, as well as clean up the property. We will also endeavour to remove any leftover odours from the property caused by water logging. Our professionals are experienced and efficient and committed to providing the best flood control service.

On the prevention side, we undertake mortar treatment in order to increase the resistance of water and force of the masonry. The treatment will ensure that the entire structure becomes strengthened in the face of heavy rains and floods. Along with this, we can also handle waterproofing your cavity drain. However, we do not undertake to handle a complete flood protection system.
