Building Drying

FRS Sewage & Flood Cleaning Birmingham offer its building drying service to commercial & domestic in Birmingham, the surrounding area and nationwide on an emergency callout basis.

Building Drying

When dealing with building, basements or cellars that have been affected by flooding whether caused by extreme weather or water ingress caused by a leaking pipe or roof, it is important to understand the short term problems and issues that standing water causes to the fabric of the building, as well as understanding the long term implications this can have and as such, the type of remediation work that is required.

We often find repairs to flood affected buildings are undertaken by general builders with little or no understanding of these long term implications and have no idea what can be expected when buildings get wet over the long term. Even long after the water from a flooded building or basement has been pumped out, some of the damage that has been caused isn’t always visible to the naked eye.

This damage can range from simple water stains, damp patches, peeling paint, rusty fittings and odour or mould to more serious structural damage that may threaten the integrity of your dwelling or business premises if the affected area isn’t dried out professionally and in the correct manner.

There is a technique to drying out areas affected by water and sewage damage and our specialist operatives that are all vastly experienced in this sector, combined with our drying and dehumidifying machinery means we can carry out basement and area drying quickly and effectively.

If your premises or property has been affected by flood water, a burst pipe or a sewage spill, contact us for advice, even if the water has receded completely the area affected will still require proper drying out and the sooner this is done, the sooner we can work out a restoration plan.

  • Thank you for all your help and advice after our kitchen flood. We were ankle deep in water and in despair until you turned up and within 24 hours our kitchen was restored back to normal.

  • Don't phone anyone else. Living close to a river, we experience flooding in our cellar from time to time - it used to be a nightmare for us, but now we know FRS are only a call away and get the issue sorted in a matter of hours.

  • When we had a flood in our Restaurant we were in a panic, every hour we closed we lost revenue. Within 24 hours of phoning Graham we had our Restaurant restored and open for business as usual.

  • We have had nasty smells in our basement cellar for a long time, it is damp and we called in Flood Restoration Services. Not only did they give us a damp proofing course, they also sanitised the cellar and sorted out a minor rat problem we had due to the permanent dampness in the area

  • Waking up to a sewage spill is a nightmare and that's what happened to our B and B guests. Thank goodness the problem was cleaned and sorted out very quickly as it could have potentially closed our business permanently. Thank you so much
