In recent years the UK has also seen flooding become more commonplace.Lambourne Restoration offer a range of both proactive and reactive services to protect or restore your property.
Escape of Water & Flood Remediation
Lambourne Restoration can fully project manage the drying process including initial clearup and strip out of damaged parts of the structure, removal and storage of furniture, supply of dehumidifiers and management to minimize drying times, and reinstatement.
Anyone who has been flooded will tell you about the misery of flooding, being homeless for a period, loss of valuable and irreplaceable items, furniture and goods ruined, vehicles and damage to your home or business premises, stock, machinery and equipment.
We can supply and install a wide range of domestic and commercial flood barriers.
Post Flood Sanitizer
Direct sewage escapes and flooding which may become contaminated with biological matter or sewage can spread a number of diseases.
All contaminated properties should be thoroughly disinfected prior to commencement of reinstatement works. Our post-flood sanitiser kills Hepatitis, Salmonella, Listeria, MRSA, and many more harmful bacteria.
Hidden leaks can be difficult to find, causing damage and costly repairs along with increased water bills. Our engineers use various methods of detection to locate your leak.
Dehumidifier & Equipment Hire
We stock a range of dehumidifiers, fans, and wet vacs which are available for hire.
Condensation in homes is a common issue across the UK, when moisture in the air comes into contact with a colder surface, like a wall or window, the warm air is unable to hold the same amount of moisture and the water is released onto the colder surface, creating tiny droplets of water to appear, which is more commonly referred to as condensation.
The moisture produced within a property as a result of every day activities such as washing, cooking and bathing, remains trapped within the property. Modern lifestyles, energy-efficiency measures such as wall and loft insulation, all contribute to the problem.
If wet walls and windows are present over a prolonged period of time, other signs will start to appear such as damp patches on walls, peeling wallpaper and ultimately black mould growth.
Apart from being unsightly and ruining your decor, mould can cause headaches, breathing difficulties as well as nausea and fatigue. Mould is also recognised as an allergen and irritant, it has been identified as a trigger for respiratory problems such as Asthma.
Asthma & Allergies
Asthma affects over five million people in the UK, more people die each year of asthma than cervical cancer and testicular cancer combined. One of the main triggers in aggravating asthma symptoms is the house dust mite and their droppings. Researchers estimate that these microscopic creatures may cause up to 80% of asthma attacks as well as countless cases of eczema. As well as eczema, other dust mite allergy symptoms include watering eyes, itching, sneezing and a runny nose!
Dust mites thrive in humid conditions, as their only source of water is from the air. This means that if there are high levels of relative humidity in a home this is the perfect breeding ground for dust mite populations. The higher the humidity, the quicker they will breed.
Added to the above are indoor pollutants such as burning fuel, the use of cleaning and beauty products and the production of carbon dioxide(Co2), create an environment which can be harmful to our health.
We have a ventilation system for most homes, which help us to reduce humidity and moisture levels. The rewards for successfully solving condensation problems, or preventing these recurring problems include reduced maintenance costs and the health benefits associated.
