Water Mitigation Company | 700m2 Basement Flooding Case Study

The Challenge

A commercial client’s basement area of 700m2 was severely contaminated with sewage water, affecting the perimeter, elevator space, and driveway entrance. Additionally, mud and contaminated black plastic floor covering compounded the problem. Essential items including timber, rubbish, signage, and equipment were also contaminated. The task was to remove physical contaminants and ensure the area was cleaned, sanitised, and safe for use.

The Solution

To address this multifaceted problem, a comprehensive remediation plan was implemented. Initially, air filtration devices were installed to maintain air quality for the duration of the work with extracting sewage water, and removing mud and contaminated materials as the team’s first priority. The entire area and affected items were then cleaned and sanitised with an antimicrobial application. Additionally, the space was fogged to ensure thorough sanitisation, followed by the disposal of all waste. Post Verification Testing confirmed the area’s safety.

How quickly should I contact a water mitigation company after water damage?

It’s crucial to contact a water mitigation company as soon as possible after detecting water damage.
